I took mine off and it makes the phone display look better and no sctcrahes.

Also the new veisorn of sense (HTC Sense) will probably be really slow on older (unsupported) mobile phones.If you really wan't to enjoy the new android and sense, maybe its time for a phone upgrade :)
The samsung focus flash is called the omnia w in India.
Hope windows offer stylus like support like sammy's S-Pen sometime in the near future.
Excuse me, didn't the Mango version solve the issue about the custom ring tones?
This review mentions you cannot customize them. Does anybody know for sure if this is true?
lol, 14 Nov 2011i clearly remember a time when iphonnies couldn't even record videos...then android came along... moreThe problem is Android even with Dual cores still lagging a lot, and is not fully optimized to use it...Android has many disadvantages over technology, and much of today techno-trash is for complaint with Android, WP7 can run smooth on single cored phones and even Symbian runs well on -600 MHz phones, the only hungry beast OS around is Android, that can catch the basic needs and is in hurry of more powerful devices....
Main Disadvantage???, 14 Nov 2011Main Disadvantage: No Flash (nor Silverlight) support in the browser What??? Flash for... moreI'm agree Flash is gong to have none support from Adobe, it will be "closed" to one last version and nothing more, will have no future as Technology, from other hand HTML5 is the future, so, I don't see any problem with the Flash support, since Adobe confirms THERE WILL BE NO MORE FLASH MOBILE, and that's official form Adobe.....

Anonymous, 14 Nov 201190% websites use flash only to show annoying adversements... Android is open-source and "... moreoh no...not the "plenty of malwares " argument again. Give us normal smart people a break...will ya ? If you're to stupid to avoid fake banners and stuff, then you sholdn't be allowed a phone in the first place.
When oh when will you be posting your Lumia 800 review? Am upgrading next week (UK), had a play with a demo model (active) in a shop and fell in love, but would love to hear you guys' opinions, you do good reviews on the whole. Agree with the points made about Flash though, hat noise you hear is not Jobs spinning in his grace, he's doing cartwheels.
No Flash (nor Silverlight) support in the browser
What??? Flash for mobile is DEAD!!! It is not a disadvantage. Silverlight will also be discontinued by Microsoft for HTML5. GSMArena should take this away in their reviews. You're talking about dead technology!
aodxxl, 13 Nov 2011Seriously what are people sugesting in microsofts suggestion box? Theres not much improovement... moreJAJAJAJAJAJA Android changed the industry??? Android is just a modern day WM or Symbian. Since the introduction of smartphones (Palm, WM, Symbian), the only real smartphone revolution was the introduction of the iPhone, love it or hate it.
aodxxl, 13 Nov 2011Seriously what are people sugesting in microsofts suggestion box? Theres not much improovement... more90% websites use flash only to show annoying adversements...
Android is open-source and "unlocked" so that's the reason that it got plenty of malwares. And I'm sure that Windows Phone hardware restrictiosn makes it MUCH more efficient than Android. You can see that most Android out there are pretty laggy when Windows Phone 7 is smooth 100% of the time even with "dated" CPUs.
The only change that Android made to the industry is the ability to every manufactures use it freely. It isn't by any means a original OS. Android is like a copy or iOS (menu estructure and simplicity), Symbian (functionality and multi-tasking) and Maemo (home-screen and widgets). There's nothing original about it.
Seriously what are people sugesting in microsofts suggestion box? Theres not much improovement. Still no flash(developement been canceled but 90% of sites still runn flash) No bluettoh transfers , no USB Mass storage (was usb OTC implemented yet?), You need shity zune for transfers .
I mean look at android ..
everything is unlocked , the phone uses every hardware component to the max , is compatible with everything and it leaves room for a variety of hardware. I bet if there were no android we would still be stuck with shity 600 mhz procesors in our phones and low quality iPhones.An d we would still use PDA's with windows 6.something.
Android pushed evolution and is continuing to push it. Everything new comes first to android then gets implemented in other os's .Restrictions restrict evolution.
All you iPhone lovers , windows phone lovers should be gratefull to android for evertyhing you have now. One simple OS changed an entire industry.
Actually, this phone will be available in Europe as "Omnia W". Here in Russia preorder started almost a month ago.
Kalun, 13 Nov 2011This phone is Ugly! Samsung design is getting worse right after the Omnia 2 generation. Om... moreThat's what I thought before I saw it in person. But the 8 gb hard drive is not for me, so I just got the Focus S, which disappointed me on the sound quality. I may return it when the HTC Titan comes out if it sounds as good as my iPhone 4 and Galaxy S2.
