Samsung Omnia W review


Windows Phone is now firmly established as a smartphone...

Well sized for the hand; solid if uninspiring chassis design; front camera

No memory expansion; no Flash support in Windows Phone; nothing especially inspiring on offer

The Samsung Omnia W is Samsung’s second Windows Phone based smartphone, and is more affordable than the 4-inch screened Omnia 7. It also has a faster processor than that other handset, with the addition of a front camera. With these elements in mind,...

Samsung Omnia W Preview


Samsung Omnia W is part of the second batch of Windows Phones that are about to hit the market in time for the holidays, and judging by the “W” in the title, it is supposed to fit in the midrange spectrum of Samsung's WP portfolio.

Samsung Omnia W: Review


It's not one of Nokia's flashy new Lumias, it doesn't run the latest version of Android and it's not an iPhone. But it is a high-end smartphone launched only recently on Australia's top mobile network, Next G. Can Samsung's low-profile, Windows Phone...
