Yes, Omnia II is indeed 667 MHz with ARMv6.
The preliminary specs was 800MHz @ > 1.2v .
Omnia is 624MHz but with ARMv5.
"Omnia" HD is at ARMv7.
Se handys are worthy...cause i have SE handys since 2005 until now and im happy with it....if you think its worthy then buy it and if not get some other brands that satisfy you....
love this handy no matter what other people say......great design,great camera,windows 6.5 os,lots of great applications and lots of uses......
SE Rocksssss all the way
SE 2010, 05 Jan 2010Bro I totally agree with what you said. However trust me the one you should blame is gsmarena ... more1) Omnia 2 has a massive 3.7" wonderful AMOLED screen vs a 3.2" in Omnia 1.
2) Have you even used WM6.5? Other than a UI upgrade, its still WM6.1. I know because I'm using 6.5.
3) Also the expectations of WM users are a little bit higher. If everyone else uses a 1GHz Snapdragon, 3.5"+ screen, what makes you think a 528Mhz processor paired with a 3.2" screen priced at a pocket killing 500 Euros is a winner? For 50 Euros more one can get the HD2 with its bigger RAM, faster processor, capacitive screen, WM7 upgrade confirmed (at least in Russia), 4.3" screen and the very good Sense UI.
So yeah, I guess WM users tend to use their brains more. Also you can't really be a WM power user and be a SE fan. I mean... SE and WM? How many WM phones has SE released?
Ok well I admit I made a mistake and I'm sorry. However, this doesn't change the fact that the X2 is much better than the X1. And the differences are in every thing except the CPU.
At Least I had the courage to admit my mistake, but will gsmarena admit that it was wrong to say that the only upgrade for the X2 was it's camera?! I don't think so.
Who said that Omnia I and Omnia II had the same processor? One is a Marvell processor, and the other one is a Samsung processor. One is 624 MHz, and the other one is 800MHz.
I like the X2, but overall I think it may be a bad deal without proper data network connection. I just have to wait for more review before I pass my final judgement.
But regardless of the outcome of any review, the X2 will definitely fail in the US without a US 3G version.
The X2 can really be the "ultimate" phone (camera,stereo speakers,keyboard,...), but it is lacking in hp... I mean MHz speed compared to competitors.
I know that raw hardware speed is not everything, but you cannot deny that the processor architecture is definitely older than most competitor (e.g. Myphone, Urphone, No_real_HD_phone, and etc...).
X2 is using a Qualcomm processor back to 2008. HD2 and Nexus are also using a Qualcomm processor but of 2009 (see snapdragon family). There is really no comparison to make in term of speed.
SE 2010, 05 Jan 2010Bro I totally agree with what you said. However trust me the one you should blame is gsmarena ... moreI stop trust your comments when you say Omnia 1 and 2 use the same CPU.
You make yourself look amusing.
sony should lower thier price? history repeat it self. just like x1 flop! because expensive phone,sony should consider the price.
Sony Ericsson X2 available in France, since 14 December for 456 Euros.
SE 2010, 05 Jan 2010Yes man that's true loooool. I have always noticed that SE gets the most comments, wheather it... moreSo true. Sony Ericsson has soo many views. Even haters can't resist its AWESOMENESS! I really can't blame them 'cause Sony Ericsson is just sooo AWESOME and the BEST.
This news already has more than a hundred comments! Just look at Nokia, Samsung, or whatever. They can BARELY even reach like 50 comments! Haters post BS comments but deep down, they're wishing they could have this phone.
to all SE haters
if you like x2 and dont have 490 euro you can wait 1 month then buy it about 400 euro like satio
i dont know why all people compare hd2 and droid vs x2
please compare x10 vs hd2 and droid!!!
SE 2010, 05 Jan 2010Yes man that's true loooool. I have always noticed that SE gets the most comments, wheather it... moreHaven't you seen any Nokia related article.
They're just as annoying with comments from the haters and lovers.
And Apple articles too...
KoZinE, 05 Jan 2010Why are you people arguing over a phone? It's just a phone! Different phones are manufactured ... moreBro I totally agree with what you said. However trust me the one you should blame is gsmarena not the people who are posting comments. Because the way Gsmarena wrote the news was totally childish and unprofessional.
This is the main problem with gsmarena, they are very good with what they do but when it comes to being objective and writing in a mature and professional way, they just don't have it. No offence here, I'm only sharing my opinion.
What the hell does this means? But is it worth the buy? Or when they say the only upgrade is in the camera and the wm 6.5, and this is totally untrue! And the problem is that the noobs will believe this and start to repeat what gsmarena asserted like parots.
The only similar thing is the processor, and this is not a problem, look at samsung for example omnia 1 and 2 has the same processor, why didn't any one complain? the processor is important I agree, but it's not the only damn thing.
The X2 is different in every aspect, the screen size, weight, camera, video recording, keyboard, new ui, stereo speakers, faster performance and the new wm 6.5 professional.
Use your mind people will ya? That's the reason god gave you one.
Anonymous, 05 Jan 2010Wow.. It's amazing how Sony Ericsson phones get sooo many comments. Even haters love viewing t... moreYes man that's true loooool. I have always noticed that SE gets the most comments, wheather it's from the fans or the haters lol.
As you said SE attracts most people. There are many samsung, lg and moto phones for example that people don't care about it. But when it comes to SE all the people wants to know what they offer. That clearly shows how SE is strong and remarkable :D
not geting this one, already made a mistake by buying the xperia x1 for 900 dollers, they didnt even change the processor so probly lags like the x1, and my first and last time with a windows mobile os.i just like the cameria in this one 8 mp is awesome, but not worth just the cameria. will wait for x10 review.
