Samsung I900 Omnia
3 November 2014
Excerpt: En Junio pasado Samsung presentó su nueva estrella, el I900 Omnia. Este celular posee todo lo que pueda llegar a exigir el mercado. Pero aparentemente nadie se enteró ya que la fecha elegida para la presentación fue la misma que …
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'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.
Summary: While there are some design quirks, and we're still waiting for a U.S. release, the Samsung Omnia promises to be a solid alternative to the Apple iPhone.
Pros: The Samsung Omnia features a nice touch screen and customizable interface that makes the Windows Mobile smartphone easier to use. It also has a 5-megapixel camera and a boatload of other multimedia features.
Cons: You can't add additional widgets to the TouchWiz interface, and there are some nagging design quirks. The unlocked version does not offer U.S. 3G support, and it's expensive.
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...
Excerpt: We all know that Windows Mobile is the most mature and full featured Smar tphone operating system, however that maturity has also meant that it is missing some of the newer user interface (UI) paradigms such as multi touch and enhanced mobile browsers like Safari. Microsoft has currently left the implementation of such new technologies to its hardware partners such as Samsung, who has brought a widget-based interface to the Omnia on Verizon.
Conclusion: In this shoot-out, we see that the E90 put up a good fight, especially in colour rendition of close-ups. But in distance shots, it clearly loses out to the Omnia in sharpness and details (which is where the extra megapixels came in handy).
Summary: The Samsung OMNIA is a nice phone. Its physical design is good, it feels great in the hand and the basics (dialing, sound quality, camera) are well executed. However, the touch-interface lacks the appeal of competitors like the iPhone and even the T-Mobile G1 as their software was natively designed with touch in mind. But, if you want Windows Mobile, this is one of the best touch-only phone out there.
