Samsung Omnia 7
2 weeks ago
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.
Summary: "This is one of the best phones I have ever used. It takes a while to get to grips with but the hardware makes it a cut above any phone I have ever used. I would give this phone 5 stars but for the lack of apps that are available at the moment. This should improve over time as Windows Phone 7 starts to take off.
Summary: Hardware is fine. Bluetooth is powerful. When my friend's phone was powering headphones few meters away only, Samsung Omnia 7 was able to hit through all walls we found nearby, perfect quality. Wifi is fine too. Camera is fine. Sound is fine. What is not fine: software. On many levels. Starting with the core: it's windows phone. It is a bad OS. I am a programmer and I have an idea. You are just not allowed to do anything remotely useful with provided api.
Summary: The phone is light and easy to use and the camera is better than average. However it will not connect to the US T-Mobile Cellular data network. We had to rely on Wi FI ti get email and internet access.
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.
Summary: I had been shopping around quite a while for a phone and was frustrated with the one i just bought a few months ago, because it was soooo slow. It seemed to lag way too much. That's one thing I really like about this phone; it's very responsive, which I prefer; being an impatient person. The marketplace seems to have a decent amount of apps but i would like to see more in the future.
Summary: After owning an old Windows Mobile 6.5 phone for many years, I had sworn off any Windows Mobile devices. Finally, took a plunge on this phone as a gift. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. Windows Mobile has come a long way, the UI is pleasant and intuitive. The phone itself is well built, fast and easy to use.
