Anonymous, 08 Jul 2008Not sure about more beautiful... The phone looks so ugly because it's a fingerprint and grease... moreOh ok, well then try to download a firmware that would switch the Omnia's QVGA screen to VGA to improve its picture quality, LOL. Also, Diamond has better web browsing capabilities than the Omnia. I'd choose that over a faster UI anytime.
Dear All, a friend of mine has the Omnia and i have taken a look at it and used it for 10 min. (he works for Samsung)
The touch screen is the same of iphone, i used the prototype but it was very very close. plus, you get instant response from the phone which i mostly appreciate about a phone
Also, you get two interfaces, the one from samsung and the one from Windows Mobile. U dont feel like you are using a windows mobile unless you ask for it and go to the windows mobile interface.
Its weighs more but its worth it. I shall get to see a final version tomorrow. if any questions, please ask. am glad to help.
anyone know if the omnia will come with free sat nav??? like with the n95 u get 12months free sat nav with it then it charges u after. if the omnia has the same deal im getting one
Jerz, 16 Jul 2008The USB slot in Diamond doesn't look like standard miniUSB. I think it's some kind of HTC USB ... moreI have been using the HTC Diamond for two weeks. The response of the touchscreen is a bit slow. Anyway, regarding your Q on the mini USB port. Although, the slot on the phone does not look like the standard mini USB (because one of the edge is not tapered), The phone still can accept the standard mini USB cable. So, YES can be used. Cheers!

I found on a website http://smartmania.mobilmania.cz/index.php?ind=news&op=news_show_single&ide=1030 that says the GPS chipset for samsung i900 omnia is Sirf Star III, is it true ? Also, how does the speed and accuracy of the gps navigation system compare on the Diamond and Omnia?
I test today both in a mediastore in Italy (Saturn).
I think the Omnia is quite more complete and has more performances.
In plus this week, the prerelease week, if you buy a Samsung Omnia for 499euro they will give a X-box 360 for free!!!
Does it means a Brand New Samsung Omnia 8GB for only 300euro.
can any1 tell me frm which country can v get d mobiles at comparatively less price
i'l surely go 4 omnia..its cool....plz tell me d price range coz m a student....
Anonymous, 18 Jul 2008So i read the head to head but who won?
I think the htc will be better but the omnia is said ... moreThat was also my question to the GSM ARENA TEAM.
I have tested the Diamond, but I was not at all impressed by this phone. So I will wait for the Samsung i900.
The Samsung is more flexible; e.g. it has a bigger screen, faster processor, MUCH bigger memory, better battery. Also it looks more solid. The diamond is rather plastic!!! Also the diamond is VERY sensetive for finger prints.
NO, for me NO HTC, but a SAMSUNG!
So i read the head to head but who won?
I think the htc will be better but the omnia is said to have a better cpu processor? guess i will have to wait till i get a hold of both
Will standard QVGA res. designed applications/software install and work on the Omnia?
The USB slot in Diamond doesn't look like standard miniUSB. I think it's some kind of HTC USB slot so standard cables won't fit. Can any owner of Diamond check it ?
A QUESTION for GSMARENA TEAM:
Let's say you would have just enough money to buy ONLY ONE of these two phones, which one would you choose?
""The Omnia is probably the first PocketPC that we've seen to produce impressive camera samples."""
Diamond photos is better in my opinion.
They Shouldve Done The Review With The HTC Pro ..
The HTC Pro Is A Much Better Phone Than The Diamond ..
Is The HTC Pro Better This Phone .. ? ..
What Do People Think ...
Samsung Omnia Better Than The HTC Pro ..
Or HTC Pro Better Than Omina .. ? ..
