A WP7 phone for Windows fans
9 September 2012
Excerpt: This new smartphone Samsung Omnia 7 runs on Windows Phone 7. The hardware of this phone might not be the best, but it definitely has a good display. This is because the display is a Super AMOLED with 1,670 color and a resolution of 480 x 800. Its quality is comparable to iPhone 4's retina display. Speedwise, this phone uses 1 GHz Qualcomm QSD8250 Chip which offers smooth operation. It has a 5MP camera with LED flash light.
Excerpt: Had this phone for nearly 3 months now and it's amazing. Best phone I've ever had. Beats the iPhone hands down. :) I've even made 3 of my friends buy it too! They are in love with it! The SAMOLED screen is BEAUTIFUL! I almost cried when I opened the box, I couldn't wait to see it haha. I waited long enough for this phone and I definitely do not regret buying it.
Excerpt: I've been using it for like a month or so, I've been really in to it the whole time, and overall I can state: Windows Phone 7 devices are the best ones ou there on the market! Marketplace is growing, with NoDo they already fixed some issues, but with Mango and future updates, they will develop these phones to the ultimate perfections. I'm really pleased with my Omnia 7, by no chance will I ever change to Droid or iOs! As my review: read below.
Pros: UI, Astonishing screen, Camera, Browser, Speed, The overall experience of the phone
Cons: Call quality is a bit on the weak side, Zune is a bit chaotic
Excerpt: I upgraded from Android device. Reason being, android was getting too monotonous. I researched differnt phone operating systems and UI and i chanced the Omnia 7. Excellent choice too. At first there were a few issues but those were soon resolved when i hooked it up to my computer through Zune. The Phone works so well, very fluid...never once stalling (unlike stoopid android). The 1Ghz processor is more than enough to run anything you throw at it.
Pros: Display Super AMOLED (True black colours), Camera (HD Recording), Design (sleek and different), Awesome UI with live tiles, Excellent Gaming, Very fast processor, keyboard works very well, Internet Explorer!!, Microsoft Works ( in case you need to view files for college/work)
Cons: battery life typical to todays smart phone (one day per charge)
Excerpt: Upgraded to this less than two weeks ago. Took the advice of the salesmen in the phone store as they promised a whole new experience.They got that right. Lacks any kind of customisation,cannot change themes,ringtones. Cannot connect and upload pictures/video's direct to you home pc. All has to be through either Skydrive or this silly Zune.Not many good apps.The handset is very unrelaible,keeps freezing in the marketplace and on the internet ( when it wants to connect ).
Pros: Fantastic super Amoled screen, Great 5mp camera, Solid feel in the hand
Cons: Very unreliable, Useless connectivity, Battery not that good, Almost no customisation, Zune and Market place is awful!!, Not many good apps, Windows have locked this OS down pretty good.This is more a business device.
Excerpt: I have for reviewing the Samsung Omnia 7 which is one of the first Windows 7 mobile phones from this manufacturer. As pretty much all of the other Windows phone handsets that are on the market the Samsung Omnia 7 is a really high end handset, due to the …
Excerpt: Having been due an upgrade from my absolutely rubbish LG Viewty KU990, I was originally going to choose a Blackberry Curve. Thankfully, I decided against it, and chose quite possible, one of the best mobile phones on the market. The Samsung Omnia 7 starts up fast, everything flows nicely.
Excerpt: It really baffles me how a device as thin as this can have more storage capacity than a 1990’s hard drive that is much bigger and heavier than it, but since I had now become used to having lots of storage space on any of my media devices these …
Summary: "A well built phone with a great screen...very responsive. The on/off button hasn't proved to be an issue with me. It requires a firm press of around 2 seconds to activate it.The Windows OS is a joy to use (and coming from a long time Mac user, that's got to say something!). Yes there are one or two omissions and glitches but its a new OS and if it's this good now, I look forward to future developments.
