Samsung Omnia phone is not all it's cracked up to be.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The Samsung Omnia is difficult to use. When the phone rings, if you have it on your side, you have to wait until the screen flips the right way to answer the call. When you clip the phone on you side the screen will do funky things while in the holster if you don't wait for the screen to go black before putting it back on your side.
Excerpt: The Samsung Omnia at a bit under three years old is a dated piece of technology. It runs Windows Mobile 6.1, which Microsoft has since updated twice via 6.5 and windows phone 7. This particular build more or less requires a sharp fingernail or a stylus to use for even basic functions. The ROM bundled with the device has been updated since the initial release, however it is highly doubtful that any additional updates will be provided.via Samsung or Verizon.
Excerpt: Bought the Samsung Omnia when it first came out with Verizon Wireless. I was excited to get and had lots of fun when it first came. After a couple of weeks, it was not funtctioning well with the texting. It freezes up all the time. I have to shut it off and turn it back on. End all tasks, etc. It only came with 2 games, all others for purchase even with a unlimited data plan. The Opera Browser is a little better than the Internet Explorer version.
If I wanted a computer, I'd have bought one. This isn't a phone!

Excerpt: I am glad that when I bought this phone, I had a 30 day trial with it. It went back to the store. As a computer, it could do alot-but to get the darn touch screen to work was ridiculous. The internet itself was slow, as well-someone with his blackberry would race me to a website, and he always won. The screen was nice and bright to see stuff on. As a phone-this was horrendous. Phone rings? Good luck being able to answer it. Want to make a call?
Excerpt: The samsung omnia was a great disappointment. I upgraded to this phone from an LG flip phone which was quite dated. I tried Samsung omnia for 30 days and decided the old phone was much better. I had trouble with the texting features. The texts seem to be disorganized and all over the place. The sent texts, drafts and incoming texts were all mixed up and not organized in a folder.
Summary: I was interested to get a cheap smartphone, so I bought that phone. Its looking nice, but little bit slow. I have tried to install skype but I could not, I need to use skype for communication with my family. It has may features like as computer, thats the positive sides. Sometimes I found that the phone was not working, sound system stopped automatically, musics played very slow motion, I could not hear by speaker, but I could hear by earphone.
Excerpt: This phone's been with me for almost 2 years now. Must be a very good phone. Actually, the reason why this phone's still with me is it's very good camera. OVERALL THIS PHONE SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCES ONE'S PRODUCTIVITY -- IT'S VERY SLOW AND HANGS ALL THE TIME! DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PHONE! SAMSUNG SUCKS!
Pros: good camera quality and features, good music sound quality
Cons: bad touch quality (slow, irresponsive), bad phone for texting, plasticky built, extremely bad wifi, bad ui, always hangs
Summary: I bought this product because it was cheap, and I didn't have a cellphone at the time. The phone is good as far as contacting who one needs to contact and such, but as far as advanced technology goes, I do not like it. The screen is too touch sensitive. The letters are too small and hard to hit. Let's just say it's definitely temporary.
