I know Iphone users are only buying for the hype of this phone but they are suffering from the cons basically. Even the 4th largest manufactures which is LG can outdo Iphone how much more is SAMSUNG. Iphone is using SAMSUNG chips and apple is nothing and will be nothing against the top 5 manufacturers of phones. As far as I am concern, they do not have yet the technology on the mobile phone world. They are only specializing on PC's, laptops and well the Ipod which is heavily advertised but no trademark audio technology pionered.

I believe that without the Iphone samsung would not have touchscreen phones atm
It's weird. Iphone anounced, then prada then viewty then f480 then htc diamond then omnia and tube, blackberry thunder too. And the ones out now, the touchscreen and ui is far behind the iphones. Yes Bluetooth, mms camara and video are not good points but it makes up for it big time.
[deleted post]i totally agree with kbXu and Kal..... iphone sux to the core..

Touchscreen phones were out long before iphone. Yes it is multi touch but samsung did not try to copy that. They simple made a type of phone that was around years before iphone. You mac people are so stupid...blind loyalty to shit. We PC people bash everything that sucks, we dont defend out of loyalty. The Samsung Omnia is the most complete phone every created... wifi, tv out, radio, 5mp camera, micro sd slot and yes it can do something called file transfers with bluetooth that is now stone age tech in the industry...but yes its true, sucky iphone cannot do that, even the cheapest phones do that. Iphone not even worth getting free.
whatever???...why dont you join apple or work for samsung...i think you're good..

Do you know that it's Samsung that supplied iPhone with those 8gb/16gb NAND flash memories. No doubt, iPhone is on a different league altogether with its UI and web browsing acapabilities. However some basic functionalities are missing. And that's very prominent. You have bluetooth and you can't share a file. And here my friend is suggesting us to email that file to the guy standing next to me. You have cam but you cant record video. These might sound like a great innovation for you, not for everyone!!. If you want to praise iPhone for its pros, please have the balls to take the cons as well. Those who buy iPhone they compromise on those and they don't care. Its about personal taste. iPhone is more like a RAZR now, doest matter what sh*t it is, everyone have to have it in their hand. Samsung didn't just created Omnia after 2 years. If you know F700 was released 2 years back as well. Thats almost the sometime as iPhone. Then came F480/Armani/F490 and Omnia. .and it definitely doesn't look or feel cheap.
like my dad have this omnia i900 and i have the iphone...i feeel so jealous about everything...COPYCAT???...i think not???...omnia is more ahead of the iphone...hahaha...look who's talking...

All you can say about is iphone, iphone this iphone that I am just tired of it, can't a company just make a touch screen phone without having the title "iphone copycat". I've said this almost ten times already this is a Samsung phone not and iphone so please don't talk about how cool it is or how better it is then the other phones or how their functionality is better or worse please take it to the iphone forums.
clearly you know what it means to be a cheap "immatation" - we can tell you are a little man wanting to contribute to the big world, but I can tell you Omnia isn't a iPhone imitation, rather a player in the professional grade high-end phone, which just happens to be inspired by iPhone :)
Vaan, 12 Aug 2008Lee please go to the "Apple Forums" and admire the iphone if they have one and do not disturb ... moreHow can the iPhone not be mentioned on this post? Even the article says "The iPhonesque rear must be just what some of the WinMo fans out there have been waiting for"
I don't think you can mention anything about any smartphone/touchscreen without the iPhone being mentioned.
This Samsung is an OBVIOUS yet lame copy of the iPhone 3G white.
"I know, lets be really original, make a 16 gig version and make it white!"
Whats next? "Samsung Application Shop"?
I will be really surprised if Samsung make this phone useable. Yes, its got a load of features, but can you use them? The Tocco has more features than the iPhone, but the phone is useless. I mean simple things like deactivating the touchscreen when the phone is on your ear. The Omnia is running Windows so im not exepting anything more than a sluggish hard to use PDA with an ugly UI. The astounding thing is that Apple released their product almost 2 years ago, and its still unbeaten, yet people comment that it cant mms, cant bluetooth and that the camera is only 2mp. Firstly, why do i want to pay to send an mms or bother with bluetooth when i can email one? free, and dont have to be in 10m distance, so best of both
loooooollllll man Omnia is a cheap immatation of iphone??? hahahahah its like a fake Chinese phone having triple the number of features than the original lolllll hahhahahahahahahaha cheap immatations man i'm never gonna forget this one...hahaha keep chillin homies!!!
[deleted post]If all these are cheap immitation then what exactly is 'Nokia 5800 Tube' going to be???
After iPhone/Prada/F700/Viewty/Amrani/F480/F490/Omnia why suddenly Nokia decided to release a touchscreen phone with vibrating feedback? Apple/LG/Samsung are way ahead on this than Nokia.
you are crazy !
samsung is 2 and se 5 .
go home lee
iphone is just like an ordinary phone for ordinary people here in US.its like everyone has an iphone.
pokpok, 12 Aug 2008If this phone is far better than the iPhone, then why are you guys even comparing it w/ the iP... moreOmnia has faster CPU, Better and more software, More memory, upgradeable memory, true bluetooth stereo and transfer, accepts different and will play different media also does not rely on just one server for media, lighter, longer stand by time.
I totoaly agree iphone is nothing but a piece of art mobile device, doing MP3 and a low end camera that every phone these days are equit to do...
