to fix omnia 2 sunlight visibility issue just turn off the auto backlight and set it manual at 50%. that is bright enough to see clearly in the sun. so it was never something wrong with the amoled screen, it was a software issue.
ashk, 29 Aug 2009Hi ANONYMOUS, I'm really confused & need a swift reply from u pleas. I'm planning to buy e... morei would go with omnia 2 for sure. since it is window mobile u still get the huge amount of apps and u dont have to deal with the driver issues of htc. so omnia 2 for sure :]
I have a few questions..I am interested in this phone...but...
1) does this mobile support ringtone AND vibrating at the same time ?
2) can u use any mp3 song as ringtone or sms-tone ?
3) how is the ringing volume ?
anyone that can help me ?
Sometimes the installation om the software glitches, so it doesnt really matter if you find an upgrade.
So what you need is to send the phone to a repairshop, let them flash the phone, and reinstall it.
Not just an upgrade, that almost never fix anything thats not an known issue. An upgrade just replaces some lines of code, and if your not extremly lukcy and the problem that is exclusive for your unit, happens to be in the line of code that is upgraded, the upgrade wont do it for you.
You clearly have some issues, that is not an issue with the OS and UI running on Omnia II please have it fixed, and stop posting that issue over and over. You might scare of potential buyers, people might actually think that the auto rotation is not avalible in the browser.
Is there indentification for the incoming call? Because, I only have identification with photo (only My contacts), not by number. So, if someone calls me, on the screen shows only ,,incoming call''.

In the review nobody mentioned anything about the sunlight legibility of the display :O Anybody have a clue?
The technical sheet of processor S3C6410 of Omnia II from the following link is clearly shown how this processor work:
The processor can operate on following speed as below
That why Omnia II has CPU performance throttling feature (Low,High..etc) and it is 800Mhz if set at high.
GSMArena, please check and study and correct the mistake, your main page new added comment is still wrong as you guy never go study deeply how this processor work.
I'm really confused & need a swift reply from u pleas.
I'm planning to buy either an HTC HD or SAMSUNG OMNIA II???!!!
Concerning the HD I've heard rumors about the battery life and of course no led flash ,the OMNIA II, u wrote something about its touch screen and the OS function???
WOULD U PLEASE LET ME KNOW UR OPINION REGARDING BOTH PHONES AND WHICH ONE DO U PREFER ?
I understand it does not support multilingual keyboards and searches (Hebrew etc...)
I had enough with this experience on my first Omnia, having to install a crooked third party software, and was totally disillusioned with it.
The iPhone 3GS has fixed this point, and it makes it the best choice in smartphones for non-english people.

16m color became 65k
800 mhz became 667
really shame onIts actually 16 M colors.. but unfortunately, WinMo 6.1 limits it to 65K only, that's why the Omnia HD a.k.a i8910 has 16 M colors, because it uses symbian60 OS...
It's said that WinMo 6.5 will support 16 M colors.. we'll just have to wait and see.
Also, the Device has a 800MHz CPU not a 667MHZ CPU.
And it doesn't have a capacitive touch screen because WinMo 6.1 doesn't support it.
However, WinMo 6.5 (windows phone) will support it.
As the New Acer F1 (S800) smartphone will have a 3.8" capacitive screen and WinMo 6.5 out of the box. (rumor has it that it will be released in september) i don't recommend it over this phone though.

Anonymous, 28 Aug 2009wow 16m color became 65k 800 mhz became 667 really shame oneven tho omnia 2 only has 65k colors, the amoled screen is still way better than any other phone screen. if u look at that screen comparison video, compare omnia 2 to iphone 3gs, and omnia 2 has way more saturated colors. the iphone 3gs screen looks very dull in comparison. even if iphone 3gs screen is brighter in sunlight, that is due to amoled cuz amoled does not use backlight :] im not saying that 65k is better than 16m cuz obviously that speaks for itself. but a good 65k screen with good contrast and colors can be just as good as a 16m colors screen (if not better) cuz in human eyes u can only see 65k colors anyways.
umm i think gsmarena is wrong about the cpu. the older version of it which was previously used on iphone 3g was normally clocked at 667mhz( but apple underclocked it to save power). the newer version on the omnia 2 is normally clocked at 800mhz.
wow...im real disappointed at how the omnia 2 touch player wont play any video bigger than d1 resolution... they should have least made it wvga res since that is the phone's natural resolution -.- this is actually similar to the omnia hd touch player that would not play anything higher than 720p res. Hmm, since this is winmo os we r talking about, i hope some developers can find a registry edit to fix this :/
hey dude!in the review gsmarena said the touch screen is capacitive!is it true?!plz somebody tell me is it capacitive or is it resistive!in the specification mentioned it's resistive and then know in the review it said capacitive!
