Video play back is great. Its fun watching movies on huge 3.7" AMOLED screen and 65K color limitation is hardly noticeable.
Even the battery life is very good. I easily get 3 days with heavy usage (videos, calling, music, bluetooth, wifi,etc)
I have used other phones like O2 XDA Flame, iMate Jamin, HTC Diamond, HP IPAQ. This is the best phone so far.
Could someone please tell me something about the camera of omnia II? i have a SE C905. The camera is very good. I would like to buy omnia II but i am not sure about the camera. thanx in advance.
Can anyone tell me if the 65k colors limit in WinMo affects watching movies?
Do they look worse than other phones with 16 million colors?

I installed SPB shell on my Omnia2 for a few days. But I found that the battery drains faster with SPB shell. So finally I uninstalled it, though I like it a lot!
A lot of people here are using SPB. What is your experience guys? Any issues with battery life?
And for those who have upgraded to win 6.5 Any problems after upgradation? Happy with 6.5?

Anonymous, 23 Nov 2009Omnia II is a Great phone and contender to the HD2. For all you people who think the HD2 is th... morenice comment.
HD2 is amazing... it make me forget to omniaII a moment.
but maybe samsung will improve after service(i mean upgrage firmware), and make Omnia III with capacitive, multitouch screen and very fast...:D
When it was W6.1 no HanYuPinYin/chinese SMS allow. After upgraded to W6.5 over joy that can use HanYuPinYin and hand written chinese... started SMS to family member and friends. But disappointed all the chinese SMS send out the receiver only able to see ????????? on their handphone. Try and try SMS to myself it also appear on screen ????????. Why? Did anyone know? Is it because i did not setup some program.....need your advise and help . Thanks
hi guys... can anybody please tell me if this phone has a great display despite of the 16K colors? Is it a downer for this almost perfect mobile phone?
Omnia II is a Great phone and contender to the HD2. For all you people who think the HD2 is the best, read this by GSM Arena review of the HD2:
The final threat for the HD2 success on the Windows Mobile ring is the more lightweight Samsung I8000 Omnia II, which should definitely be the weapon of choice for all those of you that find the HD2 just too big.
It might not have the brute processing power of the HD2, nor the RAM count, but the actual handling and response are perfect. The 3.7" AMOLED screen, another fully customized UI, huge internal storage, DivX/XviD support out of the box and all kind of software goodies make the I8000 Omnia II a force to be reckoned with in the smartphone field this holiday season. Not to mention it’s got a nicely capable camera and it currently goes for some 150 euro less than the HTC HD2.
