Samsung B7300 OmniaLITE review: The light side of life
31 October 2009
Conclusion: Windows Mobile has long been flirting with the midrange but PocketPCs are not so keen to go down…erm… the ranks. HTC would drop an occasional lower-end handset but it's not really what they do best. But we guess the market situation is now forcing manufacturers to reconsider.
Pros: 3" 65K-color resistive touchscreen of WQVGA resolution, Quad-band GSM support, 3G with 3.6 Mbps HSDPA, Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional OS with TouchWiz UI, Samsung ARM 1176 667MHz CPU and 256 MB of RAM, 3 megapixel autofocus camera with smile detection and VGA@15fps video, Built-in GPS receiver w...
Cons: Low-end display resolution, No standard 3.5mm audio jack, Poor screen sunlight legibility, No two-position shutter key, despite autofocus functionality, No stylus slot

Summary: If you thought Windows Mobile 6.5 were an extinct species, then you need to think again. We have actually tested the Samsung GT-B7300, better known as the Omnia Lite. We have previously praised some Omnia models up in the clouds, such as Omnia HD.
Excerpt: Available At: Samsung has dominated the cheap touchscreen phone market thanks to the Samsung Tocco Lite and the Samsung Omnia2 as well as the Samsung i900 is doing quite well in the high end smartphone department.
