I hate branding by phone companies but if you unbrand your phone then it goes wrong then you have the worlds most expensive paperweight as your warranty is invalid and the manufacturer will not repair the phone, for the sake of a You Tube and Facebook widget it is not a risk I am willing to take

Btw, I find the touch screen capabilities of this phone in some ways better than the iPhone. The sensitivity is almost the same. I used to own the 2G and 3G versions btw. Another good thing about this phone is its haptic feedback. As regards applications, the preinstalled apps for this suffice my needs. Yes there are probably thousands of iPhone apps but most of them are either too expensive to be very useful or simply nonsense.
iangabinete, 10 Jun 2009I finally got hold of this amazing phone. Here's a personal review: Pro's 1. The built is ... moreHey fellow filipino! haha... if i decide to buy it from the Philippines, is it exactly the same as the ones i would buy from the U.S.? Is everything in english? Is there any differences?
I have to say that unbranding this phone is the way forward. The touch is good but obviously nowhere near compared to that of the iphone...and the applications are very limited to this aswell.
It is a very good phone to have so far and flashing the firmware has made it even better as the Orange firmware sucked.
The battery on the other hand sucks. Battery life is sooo bad, most of the time i wake up in the morning to find my phone has switched off because the battery has died.
Vidas, 11 Jun 2009man, where did you get the software for debranding? Is this the soft that I saw on ebay for £3.50?I have used debranding for n95/n96 etc and on the site it said you are taking that firms software off and unlocking the device and its legal..Most people do it to get software updates that the flipping branded fone companys somehow forget to dish out..Why should we put up with it,,fair enuf put orange or voda icons and wallpapers etc on the device and make the homepage your own portal but you go messing with the software..I think therefore that the companys are messing with devices and its them breaking the rules not the consumer..If samsung/se/nokia bring out an update for their devices why should we be restricted from that update because of operaters,that stifling the device of its true potential and should be illegal..Fed up with the lot of em thats why most of my fones are sim free,,and at a cost...

guys, does anyone knows for sure if debranding and/or unlocking the phone will void its warranty?
(I'm talking about Omnia HD from Orange in this case).
i have just debranded my orange i8910,no more orange crap on phone,well happy
It's pi$$ing me off too. I don't think anyone knows which other networks it's coming to. I would like to see it on tmobile because they have the best data plans. Might be tempted if it's on 02 too, the're not too bad. But orange, no thank you!!!!
I'm fed up of tmobile putting their crap firmware on phones, they ruin htc phones! Really hoping this will come to tmobile without any software changes by tmobile.
Anonymous, 10 Jun 2009can anybody tell me how the speakers are, is there another phone you can compare to like the n... moreTry Samsung INNOV 8. Sound quality is definitely better than N95. Of course N95 is louder than INNOV 8 but with distortion. I had both these phones & am in a position to comment. Give me two weeks time for me to comment on Omnia HD's sound quality.
ding, 11 Jun 2009Is the unit you bought was sealed,does it have FCC seal? I just want to make sure that this is... moreWell it is not sealed when I bought it. If this is a clone from China then the Chinese deserves to be worshipped by creating such a very good clone! Hahaha! AFIK, the original has a Chinese clone now. The Chinese are really geniuses! I'm proud to have some of their blood! Hehehe! Your question though implies that I might be incapable of recognizing an original from a fake. Thank God I have the resources to change phones at least every 3 months. My last phone which was a pixon was only 2 weeks old when I found a way to acquire an Omnia HD. So I am somehow proud to say that I know how to look for details to tell if a phone is fake or not. This phone will certainly stay with me for more than 3 months because it certainly rocks. By the way, the screen is still visible under direct sunlight because of the ambient light sensor. The screen is very vivid that it can survive the power of its screen gloss.
ding, 11 Jun 2009hi! Is the unit you bought for 28k is 16gb? or 8gb?It's the 8GB at 28k. I bought an extra 16GB micro sdhc which is already too much for my memory needs. Hehehe!
oled is extremely hard to see in sunlight. no matter what phone has it, thats the only reason i dont like it
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2009lol~~its a total different thing~~a symbian multimedia camera phone, and a winmo. and just for... moreMan, just keep your "HD" 0.5 with you, and your sacred Symbian OS.
When you come next to an Omnia or an Omnia 2 owner, don't mention that you possess an "Omnia HD" because it is a pure laugh!
The "Omnia HD", as you wish to call it, has never been the first neither been the last. It is not just a joke, but simply a fact of bare accomplishment with a complete wrong name.
However, you can say that you have a Samsung with Symbian OS and HD video recording only. That would simply be fine.
If the scree resolution is poor indirect undder the sun light then how the Camera Will Work i Daylight...?
When the hell is this phone coming out to other networks in the UK.
It's been on Orange now for a month!!!! I really want this phone and it's so annoying Orange is the only one that got it....
Samsung would have made loads more money if it was on every network! (Would have got more order before the N97 released)
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970You have no brain ! The Satiou (idou) is going to come out so late that it will be outdated by a mile. The only thing the Satio has is it's 12 MP camera nothing else interesting. The Omnia HD kicks it ass in every department !!!
