I still have the i8910, horrible software but the camera was great & I remember the screen being ginormous back in the day.. now its just tiny.
The startup and shutdown sequences of these phones were very ludicrously popular in Russia.

If you ever compare the iPhone XS and an LG G7 ThinQ, you'll see that the blue whites are only something that Samsung does to make the screen fantastic for multimedia. Of course, the iPhones method of keeping colours accurate does away with that blue white. Plus, you could go into settings in the Samsung screen tab and change and customize the screen settings
JunN, 21 Oct 2018INNOV8, my beautiful past life 👍 I had the i8510. One of the best phones I've ever owned.
HTC made the best early Android phones. Then they locked down their bootloaders took away the sd card and disappeared.
LOL... This omnia7 has exactly same button of the iPhones..
I wish Samsung stopped being in love with Apple.
This definitely brings some memories. I still have fully working original Omnia, and I turn it on from time to time, just to mess around with it a bit. And yes, it's crazy to think that it was Samsung flagship just ten years ago, but it's definitely a phone that will be remembered by me.
It is funny how GSMA guys try to make apple fan-boys to shut up!
"The first HD-capable iPhone (the 4) would arrive a full year later."
Kiyasuriin, 21 Oct 2018Agreed! Oh. And 8. Expansion of memory! Thanks! Yeah, I should have put "microSD card memory expansion" as point number 7.
No mention for the Jet? :(
Smarter than a smartphone and all that... As a side note, I wonder if the Jet was the phone that inspired then to make the note, with its semi-capacitive touch screen that really preferred to be used with a pointy stylus.
Wave was great, thin, stylish, hw call buttons and for good price. Would they persist with their OS, we would have one more OS in phones now.

Samsung then, and Samsung now. Then complete success and now complete failure.
How long samsung took to number 1 was ages...
Huawei are rising way quicker, already number 2 in a few years
Then was multimedia beast. Now Huawei has this title plus battery Beast . And as for the battery what can someone said? ( Simply endless battery) not like the Samsung who does not last not even one day. Samsung Technisians has stayed in the 2014, when the other companies have made the transition to 2018 - to 2019 ( Flagships Mate pro 2 4200mAh Battery and Mate x 5000mAh battery).

The only thing making it different is the 3.5mm headphone jack, the rest of it is average, I mean almost every high end phone today has a big oled screen and great speakers.
