Samsung Omnia review

 

But certain omissions, such as a standard 3.5mm headphone jack and a physical qwerty keyboard, keep the Samsung Omnia from being a threat to the Apple iPhone and the T-Mobile G1.

Despite a few kinks relating to the interface and a few omissions in the design, the Samsung Omnia is a high-quality handset that delivers a generous array of features.

Samsung Omnia Lite Preview

 

The Samsung Omnia Lite is a phone to cover all bases. Measuring 107mm tall by 51.8mm wide it is a little smaller than an iPhone, and weighs in at 109 grams. The rear-facing 3-megapixel camera has digital…

Samsung Omnia Lite Review by 3G.co.uk

 

Despite the good features, usability makes this handset flawed and frustrating.

Push-email for Microsoft Exchange accounts, a good internet browser and a fast, capable three-megapixel camera.

The tie-on (!) stylus is large, the touch-screen slow and the user interface uninspiring.

Theoretically the Omnia Lite is a great phone, packed with entertainment and business features. But it falls flat on usability – the touch-screen is fiddly and difficult to get to grips with and the user interface doesn’t help matters. The web browser...

Samsung Omnia Pro Review

 

Internet usage is great and email competent, but the touch-screen is slow and user interface frustrating.

Internet looks great on the AMOLED screen and pages load quickly. The keyboard is comfortable, the camera capable and you can customise your homescreens using Windows apps. ; The user interface is unintuitive, flawed and slow, the touch-screen...

The user interface is unintuitive, flawed and slow, the touch-screen unresponsive and there’s no push-email to webmail accounts.

Windows Mobile is not well served by Samsung’s TouchWiz interface. This added to the inaccurate and unresponsive touch-screen makes the Samsung Omnia Pro frustrating to use. Messaging is okay but misses key points like push-email for webmail accounts,...

Samsung Omnia Lite review

 

We review the Samsung Omnia Lite, a pocket-friendly Windows Mobile 6.5 touchscreen smartphone with Wi-Fi, A-GPS and stacks of features

Compact, slim design ; HSDPA high speed 3G connectivity ; Wi-Fi ; 3-inch touchscreen ; Widgets customisation ; A-GPS and Google Maps ; Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone functionality ; Very good selection of applications including Office Mobile suite

Resistive screen requires stylus ; Not enough finger space on some options as screen can be unreponsive in places ; Windows Phone OS not intuitive and can be clunky ; Sometimes slow to respond ; Texting process could be better ; Average camera

Samsung Omnia Lite review

 

I am sure that the compact, high spec phone will appeal to a lot of people, for me it was not the first phone I picked up in the morning for a day's work, very capable and with all the goodies that you would need but just a few too many niggles that...

Samsung Omnia review

 

The Samsung Omnia is a neat mobile phone offering much functionality. Samsung has equipped the Omnia i900 with a 5.0 megapixel digital camera, GPS-receiver, Windows Mobile software, HSDPA and a large touchscreen. At this time, the Omnia is the flagship...

Samsung OMNIA Review

 

The Samsung OMNIA is always going to be a product pigeon holed into the "it's an iPhone clone" category and whilst this could be true, we believe the product is ...

The Samsung OMNIA provided a great Windows Mobile experience in our eyes, though it may not be everyone's cup of tea due to the virtual keyboards and small niggles that are evident with the camera and GPS software compatibility. However you do get a...

Review: Samsung Omnia

 

Samsung takes something of a scattergun approach to the mobile market. With Symbian and Windows Mobile (Standard and Pro) phones, plus those with proprietary OSes they have, in theory at least, a handset for everyone. This Omnia runs Windows Mobile...

But if the Omnia has only mixed results when trying to enhance the much derided Windows Mobile interface, in other areas it is a case of when it is good it is very, very good.
