who so ever was waiting for omnia hd in india..
its good news, cheer up..go get urs..
as it has launched in india...
The Samsung OMNIA HD is priced at Rs. 33,990
The HD is the world’s first full-touch handset featuring 720P HD video recording on mobile, as well as the world’s largest 9.4 cm (3.7-inch) AMOLED screen on mobile. It runs on a Symbian OS and an intuitive 3D UI at the surface with desktop widgets. With its 1GHz Processor it promises to be one quick handset.
iPhone iPhone. Why does everybody say iPhone. Honestly I'm an Apple user for more than 10 years but I still think that the iPhone is ok but I dont talk about it like its the King of phones. In fact most of its technologies are quite back dated. Yes the touchscreen is good, the browsing good but other than that I cant find anything else that its good as compared to the Omnia HD. Some people mentioned that it good to have a metal bodied phone not as plasticky as pure plastic. But is the iPhone made from all metal. Plastics has it good points too its light, flexible and is inexpensive to change. Unlike metal where once it hits the ground it gets dented and paint will be scratched. I know this s I'm also still using my Innov8. It cost alot to change the casing.
The omnia hd is the best phone i have ever owned what more could a phone need it records video in hd has a massive 3.7 amoled screen, 8mp camera 3.5 audio jack 8gb internal memory and to top all of it runs on symbian os not windows mobile. I would be hanging on to this phone for a while it has everything i ever needed in a phone and then some and it only cost me $850 australian dollars.

I've had the phone for over a week now. At first it was slow and buggy. I updated the firmware to the Hong-Kong IG3 and the phone is faster, more responsive and battery lasts all day and then some. I even hacked the phone so it accepts apps from Nokia's Ovi store cause it behaves like a N97. The good thing is that there is room for more improvement with future updates. the phone already performs great and with the new widgets and apps that will be released soon... along with the firmware tweaks... will make this monster #1 for a good while.

Battery would last about two days and half in normal usage, (saying 1 hour of talking via 2G network some hours to listen to your music and a bit watching, shooting and playing the asphalt4 )per day.
Unfortunately, the audio problem didnt fixed out of the box, my current firmware is: (jvif6), date:17/06/2009, custum version is: (othrig1), dated: 10/07/2009.
I didnt check for the update yet but will tell you ASP.
But overall im happy with it and i can live with that poor amr audio, cause i heard fixing the audio will result in poor video frame rate.
Currently the video quality is awesome(knok the wood)LOL.
The other disadvantage is a bit low audio out through headphones and lower bass comparing to decent mp3 players. But i could live with it.

Anyway, what do you think, between Satio & Omnia HD?"
Yeah, i khow waht youre saying ;)
Im happy with my HD even though the audio recording is not fixed out of the box(didnt check for the new firmeare yet)
No idea about the satio I heard its a good phone but not HD recorder and no amoled display if im not mistaken.
I cant even imagine buying a next lcd phone.lol

Just got my batt charged. Everything is awesome. No comments on batt life yet. Should be the latest firmware. I've checked (I'm not very adept, but I've checked from the phone itself). Touch performance is great!! Fast not lagging. I've yet to download other applications so can't comment if over stored the applications. I surf through EDGE. Malaysia has only the 8gb but Singapore is selling the 16gb. Only the main Samsung distributors have the units (limited) not other indirect distributors. Price SGD1098 w/o contract. So far so good. But I've yet to locate the FM transmitter yet. Maybe don't have.
Video is great! Sound is great. But voice over the phone sounds a little "hollow" like what some forums mentioned.
can anyone tell me wich one is better samsung omnia HD or samsung jet????
its out for telcos in sg today. approx $600- $800 with high end plans.
I tested this on the store..it is a FAIL. i have NOKIA E71 now. maybe will buy a E72 or E90. iam a BUSINESS mainstream customer. i need big screen for my job. i wanted to buy Omnia HD but its a BIG FAIl. why? Touchsence never come close to Iphone.. Menus r slow in times, and i was takng photo and suddenly it dropped to menu itself. why? battery was full..maybe a memory issue. and browsing the web is pain beasue its a bit SLOW i mean zoming and navigating in the same page when u zoom..Damn Apple did the best with safari..Dont get me wrong, i am not apple fan and even iam not their target customer but they did the touchscreen and safari program as best...Omnia HD fails with touchscreen and performance..But good par is a REAL BIG SCREEN..and Symbian OS. and photo quality looks awesome. cant comment about battery life...and yeah also the voice quality while u talking is not better than my nokia e71.odd...anyway..if u want a stylish phone go buy iphone i guess..but if u want a useful phone with big screen u may get this phone but maybe a firmware update needed?
hamid, 13 Aug 2009i-phone and nokia's high ends like E and N series have among the best lcds in the worlddoes it have a low battery duration? and how is the voice in HD recording? i mean the phone that you bought from microtel also have the problems or the problems are fixed?
