Why dont mobile phone companys create a universal dock on the bottom of the phone/media players, thats why apple ipod/iphone are so popular, u can plug it into hundreds of music players, they have all now standardised the usb charger I just wish they would have a dock port on the bottom of there devices.
I would just like to remind people of the spb mobile shell available for this phone. It'll improve your omnia 2 ten fold I have been using mine with the shell for about 2 weeks and could not be happier.
I also recommend people that love video to download the youtube app (not the widget but the application) off of google. its the fastest way to check out your favorite youtube videos without the lag and waiting to load (just search, click, and enjoy).
another point i want to make is that the omnia 2 takes time to get used to partially due to unlimited customizing with the spb shell. contacts look awesome, texts messages or emails likewise, applications customizable to some extent, this phone is just about everything i could ask for I even stopped using my laptop as much because of the phones speed and pleasing UI design.
video playback on this phone is like no other bright sharp and high contrast thanks to the AMOLED screen which reduces battery consumption unlike back lit displays that over consumes battery life. I actually managed to watch transfomers 2 all the way through with plenty of battery life left try doing that with a back-light display.
Come on widget making people,lots more widgets,more more more,what about a "ring the wife widget" or I dunno ,,quote of the day,,,or something.lets get them going.,,,,please
can anyone could tell me what is the sms capacity of this phone?
I bought 'Samsung Jet S8003' last week but was dissapointed to know that inspite of massive internal and external memory it can have only 200 smss only!!!!!
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2009Anyone know when 6.5 or 6.5.1 update for Omnia 2 will be available????? Cannot find anywhere.....Windows 6.5 is announced to be ready for download with immediate effect in Singapore for all Omnia II phones.
It is possible have a widget in the screen for 1 or more contacts?
I am to chouse the omnia 2 or the nokia x6, what do you think?
Help me please
wow, what a great phone,mine goes like a rocket,NEVER SEIZES,am happy with touchwiz 2,making and recieving calls are faultless, video and audio are spectaculer,alarms and reminders all work fine,camera and it's functions work fine,battery life is great and the screen is not overrated ,it is amazing.
This is my 4th winmo phone and it is by far the best i've had.HTC touch diamond was the worst,what a piece of junk that was. HTC HD 2 might be ok , we'll see,but it will cost more than omnia 2 .
Ariel, 30 Oct 2009Thanks a lot deej, but im gonna stick to my omnia first. maybe getting used to it is the key. ... moreAriel,
can"t help I'm afraid,youtube is working fine on mine.I did have trouble at first but i put that down to poor reception.Going through the youtube widget and coreplayers tube they both work fine.
Thanks a lot deej, but im gonna stick to my omnia first. maybe getting used to it is the key. hehehe. I have another problem though... I cant seem to play you tube videos whether in opera or explorer. Why do u think that is? Shd i do something in the settings? Help. Thanks in advance.
mortaza, 30 Oct 2009its my favorite phone.ya..mine too..and by the way AMOLED is not overrated...its simply STUNNING..
I agree. Give the HTC a go, I have taken my 18000 back twice for tests to see why it is seizing. The Samsung techs don't know why, or care I fear. There are a few other problems too. Basically it does not come close to value for the money these phones cost compared to phones of 3 years ago. Sadly.
You're doing the right thing waiting for the new HTC,
there are a number of faults in the omnia mk2 which samsung refuses to address, no matter how many customers tell them abt them. The AMOLED is overrated by the way, esp compared to the many oversights samsung has made with this phone.
It seems the phone has many bugs and problems ... thats why it's still not being released in most countries .... although it was supposed to be released in July. Very strange ... I wanted to buy this phone but it's still not available in Middle East. I will wait for HTC HD2 which sounds more promising. But Samsung has an advantage of AMOLED which is really amazing.
Ariel, 28 Oct 2009Thanks a lot deej. I think practicing will help a lot.Just have to get use to it more i guess ... more G'Day Ariel
Sorry about the typo earlier,was unintentionable.
I see what your talking about with the finding songs issue.I guess you're in a bit of a pickle.Maybe invest in another player,they're is some good ones out there.I've put coreplayer on mine simply because it plays everything.You might find one with a more usable search function.
Take a look at "handango".
Good News the phone has been launched finally in india for 28,990 rs. I would wait for a while till the price drops more before going for it !
Anyone know when 6.5 or 6.5.1 update for Omnia 2 will be available????? Cannot find anywhere.....
does any body know if the phone is in the uk yet? if so how much are the shops asking for one, Regards, Craig
deej, 27 Oct 2009 G'gay Ariel I think i know what you's saying about (slippery scrolling)try not "flicking" th... moreThanks a lot deej. I think practicing will help a lot.Just have to get use to it more i guess (Hey..did you just call me G'gay ariel hahaha... not gay dude..hahaha just kidding... good day to you too) Just laughing at this one little misfortune. coz this Song Title Search on the touch player really mean so much to me. I love playing songs with my cellphone. I mean come on...i am given a big space that could fit my current 3000 songs and im sure i could add more but then i cant even find the songs i wanted. Whats the point ryt?! You see the songs in my computer are saved in different ways when i copied it from the CDs i bought/borrowed. Most of them are numbered at the beginning or are given a different title. So i cant really find them through scrolling coz for example the song that should have been titled Unwell by matchbox was saved in my computer (thus copied in my omnia) as 12.Unwell, then when I look for it by scrolling down, i wont be finding it in songs beginning with letter U. Imagine scrolling down through roughly 2500 songs then seeing its not there when you know for sure that it should be there...its really frustrating. Do they expect me to memorize all the filenames of 3000 songs. Or what numbers they begin (if they are saved that way)?. Maybe they expect a really hardworking phone user who would rename all 3000 to 5000 songs in their computers accordingly. I dont do that. I just copy the cd and thats it. Im lazy that way. I mope around with earphones listening to music all day long. Maybe thats my karma for being lazy. Damn this sucks big time. im just so used with my n95 where i would just type "family" and choices like "Ode to my family", "family affair", "family portrait" etc would list itself for my selection. Ill give myself time to get use to it. 'Naf rumbling!Gonna play some nirvana now.hehe Thanks again deej. (BTW... hope samsung can do something about it before i upgrage for 6.5 winmo this december that would be freakin' awesome!!! please samsung! for your newly converted user)
