Ok, you don't have to be a genius to see that the OS lacks few important features, but give it a chance, I'm sure updates will come shortly. On the bright side, all wp7 phones are nearly identical specwhise (512 mb RAM, 1st gen Snapdragon) so apps won't have problems running on each of the phones. This is the problem with Android today. I'm curious how the whole xbox and zune experience will benefit the phones on a long term, but I foresee a bright future for the OS. Cheers
U know the first android n iphone also lack of everything, but they soon release the upgrade n i think microsoft will upgrade wp7.
maria, 13 Oct 2010We are near on 2011 and they make phones (Some new)with no HDMI..!!! unbelievable and your point?
N8 comes with HDMI out, does it display the 12 MPs pic fully on the HD TV? It downsizes to 1 MP and no zooming.

Microsoft chose to leave the video calling function, the Mass storage mode, the card slot( the Focus has a card slot as I know), Multitasking, copy/paste and so on. There are no problems with Samsung.
It is sad that there is no video calling, no card slot, no bluetooth transfer etc. these are too important to leave out in phone, especially from Samsung. I am a Samsung fan but I can never buy a phone that lack such necessities.
NELSON, 12 Oct 2010WHich is much better blackberry bold 9700,SAMSUNG S, or this samsung I8700 omnia 7??????
plea... moreI want to help you with all I can. :)
First, this new phone has a very weak OS! This is the truth, the new OS can't support basic functions such as copy/paste, it can't do multitasking, it lacks a memory card which is NOT a big mistake because of the big storage, but this lacks also the Mass storage mode function. WP7 lacks many things, so I recomand you the Samsung S, or the Motorola Milestone or the Droid 2, depends where you live.
The Milestone 2/ Droid 2 is better then the Samsung S, this is my opinion. Of course I am not talking about the screen quality, because every body knows that the Galaxy S has a better screen, but NOT this is the most important thing. The Milestone 2/ Droid 2 has a full QWERTY keypad, better camera.

Do U guys have the phone?if not don't talk trash about it. have a try first then u can comment about the phone n the os

1 advantage many disadvantages........
no video call
bobby, 12 Oct 2010the video quality of the phone shown in the review is soooo greatDid u really watch that video ???
I doubt it ..
Even the shaky and drop-a-frame-all-the-time Vivaz make a better video than this one!! Forget about comparing with Sammy's Wave or Galaxy or even N8 for that matter.
They might set that right with future firmware updates..but out of the box; it is crap.
