Samsung Omnia 7
2 weeks ago
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: 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.
Summary: Its good phone. Having all advanced features. Pros Its having awesome display, like the crispy colors, so nice. No other phone have this brilliant colors, not even iphone have. Camera is also good. HD video quality is great. very fast response nice performance i never faced any screen freeze or reboot. I like this Drawbacks from previous windows phones Omnia-2, No Front cam, No Voice recorder, and no Skype support. Over all experience is good.
Summary: This phone has a great built quality, unlike all other samsung phones out in the market. The display is top notch with samsung's super amoled technology everything just looks much better compared to lcd or "super lcd" I really like this phone feels nice in the hands and has been a pleasant experience.
Summary: i received omnia 7 few days back with orange carrier. I installed zune software on my laptop and try to update the cellphone, but it is not detectable, as it say device is not recognized. So, what I do, is find the drive GT-8700 from samsung uk, and install it. Finally zune detect the cellphone, BUT failed to initiate updated. Then again, drive by eager for taste of mango updates, I just reset the cellphone to factory state from setting menu.
Summary: I bought this phone with a little suspision but I got exactly what I was looking for. Good thing is that upon upgrading to Mango (windows phone 7.5) I could see internet sharing option which is not visible with other brand phones like HTC. It is unlocked phone (SIM free) and I am using in India with no problems(just FYI). Super way to go!!!
