Samsung Omnia – Can be sluggish occasionally
26 August 2010
Excerpt: Samsung Omnia is a high end smartphone and phone is really costly especially if you purchase it unlocked. Verizon Wireless is also covering this phone and you can check it out, if you are on a stiff budget. The best part about the phone is the big 3.2 inch screen which is excellent for watching movies. You get a resolution of 240x400 pixels which is quite good too.

Conclusion: There you are. We have picked the kludges that freaked us out on the Omnia and taken a critical look at the Jet and how it handles those same issues, and the new kid passes in flying colours. Samsung has come a long way in touchscreen implementation since the Omnia, but then they have had one full year since the release of the Omnia to produce something as fantastic as the Jet. The S8003 Jet is testimony to that.
Excerpt: Samsung Omnia is one of the best smartphones by Samsung. It is equipped with Windows OS and it captures great photos with its 5 megapixel camera. Learn more about this excellent phone with this Samsung Omnia Review.
Excerpt: Samsung's first major Windows Mobile touchscreen effort boasts a 5-megapixel camera and good video and music playback. We took the Omnia out for a spin to see if it mixes business with pleasure well or if it’s just another underwhelming touchscreen phone. What we like The Samsung Omnia is an attractive phone with a large screen that’s good for viewing pictures and videos on.
Conclusion: Windows is nothing to be ashamed of when it comes wrapped in Samsung’s top-notch Omnia. High-speed browsing, business smarts and super snapping might not quite make an iPhone killer, but Samsung has certainly inflicted a nasty flesh wound.
Pros: Sure, the iPhone is good at consuming media and browsing the web, but what if you actually need to get stuff done? The Omnia has a large 3.2-inch touchscreen, friendly ‘widget’ icons and easy messaging but scratch the cartoony surface and you’ll find pure Microsoft steel beneath. That means you can edit Office documents and synch up with your Exchange server – as well as shoot decent video clips, bouncy great 5MP snaps and (of course) send MMS messages. Big love goes ...
Cons: Do we really need to tell you that the Omnia doesn’t look or handle like an Apple? The case is plastic, as is the resistive touchscreen – where haptic buzzing is no substitute for the iPhone’s gliding multi-touch. You’ll need the stylus when hacking into the depths of Windows Mobile menus, too, so why is there nowhere to store one on-board?
Excerpt: I think there’s an unspoken race among WinMo OEMs to add as many features as possible to new devices such as conference call service . And hey, we’re not complaining. The Omnia i900 from Samsung, which unapologetically looks like an iPhone, has a robust list of capabilities. Features like a wide QVGA screen, up to 16GB of onboard storage, an accelerometer for automatic screen rotation, and an optical joystick for easy one-handed operation make us pay a lot of attention...
Summary: The screen is big and does not require a stylus, but Samsung's TouchWiz user interface isn't as inviting or inspiring as it could be... as it should be. The phone is far too handsome for it's software. It's actually Windows Mobile that comes off bland; TouchWiz isn't much but a tweak here and there, plus two launchers. One of them is a sexy dock-like, widget-holding app on your home screen. If only that kind of style were applied to the rest of the UI.
Pros: Universal landscape mode and universal landscape QWERTY; optically-enhanced action button functions as a scroller or track pad; appropriate use of haptic feedback and accelerometers; excellent 5 MP camera with LED flash, auto-focus and face detection; secondary cam for video calls; embedded GPS; FM radio and overall A/V-friendliness; large, welcoming and sensitive screen; it's a generally comfortable phone that makes you feel cool even though you're obviously using a ...
