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.
Samsung Omnia7 - things to consider when buying this phone

Summary: I bought this phone because all of the good comments I see here, I agree the phone looks great and fast and the touch screen is very sensitive but there are some annoying things you need to consider... 1. You cannot send anything (images, files...etc) using the Bluetooth, it just does not support that. 2. During the initial setup, the e-mail account you use will sync with your contacts automatically, which means adding e-mails, pictures.
Summary: I ordered this phone after reading the encouraging reviews and just received it today. For now, I am still trying to figure out things around. and have to just rate it as a 3-star and may update the rating as soon as things are clarified. 1. it looks beautiful 2. the functions are very user friendly and easy to get around the use of them 3. ring volume is good 4. call voice quality is nice 5.
Summary: I ordered this on Friday and as usual Amazon had great shipping. I got it the next day with Prime upgraded to overnight shipping. The Omnia 7 is a beautiful piece of hardware with a wonderfully bright and clear screen. It exudes quality and is definitely a step up from the Samsung Focus. However, I did not have the greatest luck getting this going. First off, the phone is branded Orange (from the UK) and you get all the Orange apps and splash screen.
Summary: First i did review about this phone but i delete it because of the reason i'm going to tell you guys. First off the Samsung Omnia 7 phone is one of the best phone i ever use & Windows Phone 7 NoDo update made things even faster. my came with 16gb which i was very happy but everything was fine until i start playing my music, that when this phone was starting to pissing me off.
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 ).
Summary: I really like the phone, the way its designed and the general 'feel' of the software but was very disappointed with the lack of Flash support, the lack of Apps that might have got around this mistake, and the lack of an adequate 'Sat Nav' that my old Nokia had.
Summary: Great screen, brilliant size. Easy to use menus. Great for documents and emails. Camera is lovely to use. Zune is fab and can add music, photos and videos from own collection. Storage is inadequate if you use the video camera extensively. Has no capacity to increase. Also doesn't seem to have video playback in areas of no wi-fi reception. (A big problem in the Highlands)! My biggest gripe is not being able to use music as ringtones.
