ya bro ur right,listen i had used iphone 3g,and my frnd had nokia n97 both these mobiles stands nowhere to omnia hd,its outstanding just download dvix converter from there website and convert vedios only with that converter[dnt use any other converter],u will find outstanding vedios on ur massive omnia's hd screen. and one more thing frnds if u wanna listen to more powerful music than purchase a TRANSEND 3.5 mm earphone which should cost more than 1,000 u ll not beleive it becomes 3 times powerful rather i say v.v.v.v powerful i had that.but hey remember it should be transend not a sony or any other branded earphone,coz i had checked that
Samsung stop to deceive people! your mobile don´t record HD video at 24 fps.
mangesh, 22 Oct 2009@ rohit,vbhv007, I am from india(pune),recentely got this cell,before that i have iphone(3g).... morei would suggest - wait for an update for indian firmware or a worldwide firmware update. it's not really worth losing ur warranty by debranding/flashing. anyway, if u're confident nothing will go wrong and u're really really eager to update, and also willing to shell out this much cash again, go ahead.. and please do post results and differences when compared to the original firmware :)

I am glad that they give a customized cover and the way you v described it, no chance... moreid is sendamailtoro
nope, not updated firmware. i dont believe an update for the indian version is out, so when that comes i'll update. debranding and flashing would void the warranty. and i'm not willing to do that! 30 grand at stake!! :P
no issues with opening pdf, word, excel or ppt files.
i'm at work now. i have a couple of links of the working apps and games, which i've bookmarked. will post them here tonight when i get home. let me just name them for u, u could try googling (or binging) them.
opera mini (browser)
phone torch (LED doesnt work, only display turns white and acts as a torch)
mirror (makes use of front facing camera)
night stand (shows time on full screen + alarm)
timer (stop clock)
level (to detect flatness of a surface on which the phone can be kept)
black board (like the one in classrooms - chalk and duster)
mobile paint (literally mobile paint)
touch piano (dont like it too much cuz i'm a keyboard player myself and this feel like a slight let down)
touch guitar (dont like it too much either)
nClicker 1.0 (just a clicker to keep count - like one that would come with the AXE deo click ;) )
BT file manager (to access other devices with their bluetooth switched on)
pocket shaker (just an app that makes some chiss chiss sound to distract babies)
ALON MP3 Dictaphone (recorder + call recorder)
games that i've installed:
GT racing: Motor academy
Labyrinth Lite (like the teeter game on HTC diamond etc - though not as good and this has just 3 levels:( )
MotoGP09 (i love this ;) used to play this on the computer loooong back)
one more problem,i updated my phone's camera drivers after that camera quality goes worst,still photos are not cleared,any other way to get the previous original driver?
hamid, 21 Oct 2009Thanks rohit, u r a good guy:D
But, i installed the version4 before, same problem very very... morethanks :)
no idea why it uses java instead of symbian. guess we need to send some feedback to the guys at opera. and i find quite a few other mobile browsers on the net, so there is enough competition, but none with the features like those in opera mini 5. the look and feel of this is great. just that it crashes faaaar too often.. really need a fix for that.. opera guys, come on!! :D
I am from india(pune),recentely got this cell,before that i have iphone(3g).I can safely say that hd is much better than iphone except iphone's touch sensitivity(just great).I saw in one demo video,3d multitasking(which is great),i am very egar to know when latest firmware update is avail in india?.Or i'll go for italian firmware by debranding the phone?. i know it spoil the warrenty.
waiting for the advice.
The touch response is so quick(even the symbian style scrolling is quick) the stills are amazing even in low/non natural light conditions. video quality is great in acc format. so the voice is synced and the sound quality is loud and clear. i played one of the demo vidz and its really smooth and clear as well. no 3d multitask view :((boooo) but the phone is great so far. the browser stop-bug has been fixed. there is two finger zooming. what else am i not mentioning!?!
As it relates to the video i'll do that right now but sadly no 3d multitasking :(
Symbios, 22 Oct 2009The Firmware is XXIF9 not sure which this is but i know for sure its european....:)Congrats,
Did u still shoot videos, if so pls tell us whats the sound quality of ur videos? still amr or changed to aac or somthin'?
And one other thing, do u have their new 3d multi task view?
Tell us more...
The Firmware is XXIF9 not sure which this is but i know for sure its european....:)
Just got my i8910HD 16gb a few seconds ago...i'm at work and we're not allowed to have phone on the production floor so i have this hugh bubble of anxiety trying to supress right now....it came with a european firmware XXF9 OR SUM LIKE THAT
rohit, 20 Oct 2009yes, i did get a leather cover and it is quite adequate. but i'd like to tell you 2 things abo... moreOne more thing; remember how we discussed about the waiting for the release of new phones? Now I guess, Pixon 12 is out of the race. If you visit their forum, it is full of sulky remarks and usually unsatisfied customers (not with the camera though).
So this is for any person who is contemplating (like me a few days back) b/w Omnia i8910 HD and Pixon 12:-
You can safely choose the Omnia HD. Reason is simple; Pixon is not a smartphone and will give you disappointments when you want to install many useful applications in it. Even though it has a great camera AND a xenon (the best part), it simply dosen’t justify the price Samsung is asking for (about Rs.29000) in India. Omnia HD however has a good 8 MP camera which ,I read somewhere, has the best sensor amongst all the 8 MP handsets making it more than useful; maybe the best 8 MP (some one needs to confirm this). No need to compare amongst other features coz then Omnia beats it all the way including the battery life and the screen sensitivity. So I say it’s only because of the price that pixon loses out. Say for Rs. 20000 it could have been a good bargain coz frankly speaking, one pays only for the camera (otherwise it is just an ordinary touch phone).
Hope it helps.

I am glad that they give a customized cover and the way you v described it, no chance in hell that I am ever gonna put it the other way round. Can you also give me your gmail id.
Now among other things (Please Accept Some Rapidfires):
Have you updated your firmware yet? What are your thoughts over flashing & debranding ? Would you be willing to go for it?
Earlier you had said that you managed to get some softwares and applications installed. Can you name a few which are working fine? Are there any issues with opening pdf, word, excel or ppt files?
How is your LED flash doing in the dark?
Ed, 20 Oct 2009Hey Rohit and vbhv007,
I know what you mean about the size of the phone. When I first saw it... moreHey Ed
At 6’7” you don’t have to worry about this phone at least. As Rohit said “piece of cake for you”. and I agree. Keep up with the slam dunking.
whose video is better than other.... 8mp omnia hd or 12 mp w880....
i think in video recording mega pixils of camera doesnot take part... so which one is better..
rohit, 21 Oct 2009yes, i've felt the same.. sensitivity at the corners is lesser compared to other parts of the ... moreThanks rohit, u r a good guy:D
But, i installed the version4 before, same problem very very slowwwwwwww, but after restarting the phone got better but got eventually slow again, i should restart every 5 minutes or so... can u beleive it??!!
Why it should run on java instead of symbian?? You know why?
