I have purchased the B7320 2 weeks back in navi Mumbai for 15K. Looks and handling excellent. I was using a Nokia E61i for one year. Must say Omnia Pro has a much faster processor, better camera (videos are a tad darker indoors), 16 GB mini SD (expandable). Great customizable home screen. Windows 6.1 is good. Great battery life. Excellent voice clarity in MP3 playback and very light for a smartphone. Looks much like a Blackberry.
The cons are as follows: No notepad, no customizable buttons; though you can have combination keys on the keypad for some applications.
Adobe reader has no reflow view; so you have to scroll the screen back and forth.
And the most irritating one is that most Windows mobile apps do not work! I hope this is fixed in a Win 6.5 upgrade or till someone creates apps esp. for the Omnia Pro
robin, 31 Aug 2009Hi Gopi
can you plz tell me about the battery life of this phone? since it's got a larg... moreAbout the battery, i charged it to full and it stays 28 hours standby and may about 120mins of talktime and i still have 1 last bar left on the battery which i think, it would last till end of today.
But, Samsung claims about 10hrs talktime, i dont think, it lasts that long or may be it will if i dont play any music/video/camera/wifi which i was heavily using yesterday.
For me, it is ok, as long as it lasts for 2 days which i think, it does.
On the interface,key pad is good and i am just getting used to QWERTY. The more i use, the more comfortable i am.
Navigation wise, it does the fair job except in some places i have some slight discomfort, that again, i will need to get used to it. Overall, there are no major issues i have seen on the interface.
I also got a call from someone to test the voice call recording and this phone does not come with the built-in app for this. But, there are few sw which can do that.
Iam looking to buy this phone, can anybody tell me if this can record Phone Conversations using VITO Audio Notes or Resco Audio Rcorder.

can you plz tell me about the battery life of this phone? since it's got a larger capacity battery, it should last long. hows the interface of this windows phone?
Raj, 31 Aug 2009Hi Gopi,
Can u pls conclude on which is best???
I am confused on E71 or B7320??Well, it wont be just fair to say one as best since, i have not used E71 and i am just comparing based on the facts i know so far.
If you want a latest phone with few additional support for 3G at lesser price compared to E71 and if you are open for any brand, then, i think, you can go for this.
However, i have also found few small issues here like, you cant edit a dialed number incase of wrong no. But, i think, any phone would have such usage issues, and we have to get used to it.... i guess.

I just got this phone for Rs 14000 at a Wavetel store in Chennai. With the look and feel, rich set of features it has, i like this phone very much.
I had earlier zeroed in E71 Nokia but, went for this model becos,
1. Latest phone Vs E71 launched almost an year ago
2. High speed processer Vs E71
3. Almost same features as E71 + advanced 3G speeds
4. Cheaper than E71 about 3K Rs.
On the other side, i think, you must know the following (is what i know so far since, i bought this phone just yesterday night)
1. The office applications are only for viewing and editing, not for creating a new one (except One Note)
2. It has Email client to sync with MS Exchange outlook, but, if you expect MS outlook in this phone, that is not there.
I will keep posting more info as and when i discover anything new ..
But, overall, i think, this is quite good one and beating E71 except that, it does not have audio jack and one has to samsung mini USB headset only.
faraaz pradhan, 28 Aug 2009i didnt understand ur answer for this 1. can we upgrade this from wm 6.1 to 6.5 and how??you can upgrade to 6.5 once it is released later on this year. samsung will provide a upgrade, probably through the samsung pc studio.
Theres only few things i need to know to put this on my next fone list,,cam quality to be fairly clear,,video quality i cannot find out yet and equaliser in mp3 player,,maybe DNSe..
Thank you for any info

I got the phone. But I'm shocked how Samsung understates its own phones, on it's own website.. Even asia.cnet said the same thing "No GPS".. god help both of them.
GSM Arena.. kudos
Can someone tell me, whether this phone supports SIP client to make voice calls using internet?
I am going to the store to buy this phone today and i just have one last thing to get clarified which i could not find anywhere. Can someone in India please send a SMS if you know this phone supports SIP. My phone is +91 99406 86535.
Thanks in advance.
hi i would like to ask if the sms are in threaded view or by individual messages?
is there any program to install so the phone can read chinese? i think that function is quite essential here in sg.
is the difference between 65k colours and higher number of colours, say 265k or 16million very obvious? i was thinking of getting the phone but worried that i'll be upset about the screen display.
