From my side, I am also very happy that you are open to discussions and suggestions, and that is the true spirit one should have while participating in forums like this.
Things happen and we become all the more wiser from our experiences.
You must understand that I am no where in opposition to the Satio. Infact, I myself spent around a month contemplating b/w the Satio, Pixon 12 & the Omnia HD. It's just that according to my usage and personal preferences the Omnia worked out for me.
If it has to be but one advise that I have to give to you, it would be " A resistive screen sucks so much that you feel like throwing away your phone after using it for a few dz- especially if your friend next door shows you off with a capacitive delicacy." (I am talking about resistive screens- not the Satio necessarily)
The xenon is the ONLY + point that I see. That is where personal usage factor comes in.
I hope you have a good deal suitable for your use.
Hi, I want to buy before winter holidays the Samsung i8910 HD with 16 Gb internal memory but unfortunately in Germany is available only with 8GB. Can you guys let me know in which countries it is already available with 16 GB internal memory? A link to a website that sells the 16GB version would be great.
rohit, 10 Nov 2009hey thanks bro! i was hoping you'd say both work simultaneously, but... anyway, thanks for tes... moreI really wish I could say YES about both playing simultaneously but I guess that's how it is...But on the brighter side we can always check if that idea works on other firmwares.
Any volunteers ?
But regarding the hanging issue. It really does not look promising. Any one application at some time (not always) hangs just out of the blue. Yesterday, my camera application hung. After I took a pic, I went to see it in the gallery. When I tried going back, the screen just went black (Other things working as usual). I tried many times through different paths but in vain. The camera just wudn't show. Ultimately I had to restart. All has been working fine since. Do you think that it is solely the firmware issue ?
the design looks decent fool. You want a phone like paper thin? you buy phones not mainly for the looks!! it's for the specs also!!! this phone has almost everything you need.
1. strong reception
2. dual loud stereo speakers
3. good camera/video
4. strong vibration
5. smooth dvd playback
7. crystal clear omoled display
what can you ask for in a phone? the downside of symbian os is the lack of good apps heheh
----let me remind you guys. the heavier the electronics, the better.
guys, go and get a final look at this. Samsung is moving on from Symbian ... yup, they are ditching both WinMo and Symbian for their very own Bada OS. Lets hope they get their apps in on time. No use just producing phones with high features without solid applications.
Samsung has and always will have short eol for their products. Never worth buying these phones. Poor after sales support and hardly any firmware upgrades. Stop making users to test your product demands! Go and fix your roadmap out.
Good phone but the design and user interface really ruined it completely!! The design on this really just looks hideous! The user interface should have been good too especially with that processor but it was all just wasted!! Samsung phone has the ugliest looking phones out there! Too bad about those quite neat specs...
hi guys, is there any difference in 8GB and 16GB version except of more storage? is the 8GB older model by any chance and 16GB new? cause we hav only 8GB available here, with the up to date warranty thou....any difference atall except storage?
one more thing about the audio quality of the video recording. sometimes you get loud background noise or hissing sound it's because the mic is soooooooo sensitive in the omnia hd.
i have flashed to 6 different firmwares x 20 hhahaha. it's because the audio of the video from the latest russians, Hong Kong, Itanlian firmwares have loud hissing background noise. AFter i went to the "audio_tune" *#0002*28346#, i adjusted the "camcordsps_amr and comcardarm_armr". after that, the camera was dead!!!!! i did hard reset and flashed to different firmware, but the problem still persist. the camera is working perfectly normal without the hissing sound after i did a "format C:drive" by pressing the "call+menu" +"end" buttons!!!!
-keep in minds, the mic of this phone is super sensitive. when you record videos, don't put the mic too close to your mouth or anybody's mouth. the sound will be distored.
-you can even make a high quality ringtones by using "voice recording"!!!! if you dont believe it, you can test it out. the audio source you're using must produce a high quality sounds, for it to record a high quality audio.

hey bro i went to *#0002*28346# advance setting but i was unable to edit it ... moreThanks Zenati...
Press telephone and type *#0002*28346#. A menu will appear. Now to up the Music playback volume via the headset.
To up the music via Headphones:
In the menu select:
select 2. Play Sound
now select : 2. Mp3 HeadPHN
Follow the settings
Fine gain 0 db (Default) No need to do any thing
Coarse Gain 06 db (default) dont do anything
HS Gain is 0 db (Default) change it to 6db, just tap on it then type 6 then # thats it...
Analog PGA -2 db (default) not realy need to change it, but to avoid damage ur haephones/hearing its better to set it to -4 db, just type 4 then * (for the negative values) then # and u r done.
To up the audio level during video playback:
* 2. Play Sound
* Now press: 3. Mp4 LoudSPK
* Now change (4) PreDR Gain to = 6db. Type 6 and #. And your done.
* again 2. play sound
* tap on 4. MP4HeadPHN then change the coars gain from 0db(default) to 6db type 6 then #...
To make sure your settings are saved go back to main audio tune screen and select “back-up”(if u dont hit the backup those settings will go back to their default values after u restart ur phone)
Enjoy POWERFUL MUSIC ;)

hey bro i went to *#0002*28346# advance setting but i was unable to edit it ... morewhen you get to the main "audo_tune" menu.
-main menu- you have 1.voice call, 2.play sound, 3.record, 4.vt call, 5.fm radio, 6.back up.
-go to "play sound", then go to "mp3 headphn", then go to "coarse gain"--------------this has lowest=0db,highest=12db, step=6db-----------------meanings you can select the level from 0,6,12 ONLY!! select level by 6 sequence only because the "step=6db" says 6db.
you only need to adjust the "coarse gain" and "maxpgain" only!!!!!!!!
"maxpgain" allows u to enchance from 0db-20db maximum. If you set it to 20db, it will burn your headphone/headset, and it also will damage your eardrum. Just don't turn the volume up to maximum when listening to mp3s, then you'll be alright.
you do the same thing for "mp4 headphn/loudspk", "ring loudspk/headphn". cheerss!!!!

Thank you for your valuable suggestion.
With all due respect to the Satio, I wa... morePoint taken and good to speak to someone who does not just hurl abuse back.
Maybe I was a bit off the mark with my comments and know myself the Satio is anything from perfect and Omnia HD blows it away for Video but I have heard the audio quality was not the best when recording videos but maybe I am wrong.
I originally wanted the HD until I picked it up and was just too big but I can imagine it is a really good machine and was just being a big daft with my comments yesterday.
