i say if its your 1st phone or if u do not know much about a phone go for the iphone as the omnia is much more high tech and more complicated just like a pocket pc. The iphone is more like a toy and very easy to use and anyways sum1 yr age might find it a bit bulky. For me as i am a phone fanatic and a symbian lover il go for the omnia when it arrives in my country. I feel the iphone is just for apps and browzing the internet. The omnia is an all in 1 device.

Diero, 18 Jul 2009Hi, i got a big problem! I can't choose between the 3G S and the Omnia HD.. Can somebody tell ... moreI think you will have more fun with the iphone,which is more a toy than a phone (do not take any offense on this). Thank to all the applications, it will keep you entertained.
BTW, I have the OmniaHD, but, if I were your age, I'd definetely would go for the iphone.

So, just let it get out Mr. Anonymous Apple/Nokia Fanboy!!!
well, well, well... this phone is not selling well, ditch out to the sink by Nokia N97 and iPhone 3GS...
so sad :( another disaster! samsung fans, your phone s_cks!
Amazing, simply amazing phone. I just read that n97 and 5800 xpress music are Uk top seling pohones. Are people crazy or just stupid??!!! This phone (i am proud owner of one) is HARD KILLER of Iphone, Nokia N97!! I had my hands on nokia n97 and after using Omnia HD i can just say it is like comparing Ferrari 599 GTB to, Renault Clio sport. Just take a look on you tube. There is speed benchmark between this to phones. Omnia scored 506 and Noki 253. (higher is better), By the way if you want do install GARMIN MOBILE XT on your device, just search forum for installing GARMIN MOBILE XT 5.00.50 on symbian 5th edition. Amazing phone...
it also released in here..i mean KSA and Oman too..its weird that its stil not released in UAE yet!
Karen in Ipswich, 18 Jul 2009When will the i8910 be released on other networks(preferrably O2!)?august 1st
When will the i8910 be released on other networks(preferrably O2!)?
ceejei14, 17 Jul 2009thanks anonymous. you're probably right. its gonna be my 1st smart phone (or high end as you s... moreceejei14,
Are you quite sure that this phone is going to be released here in UAE next month?
I have been waiting soooo looong for this phone and every other day I go to samsung oulet to check but... answer I get from them is that even Samsung Gulf themselves do no know when this phone will be released here in UAE..
What a shame!!!! Now that i8910 Omnia HD has been released in Qatar and in Kuwait (both are in GCC) Samsung Gulf still cannot confirm its release here in UAE!!!!
Samsung has officially declared that this phone will be released in Singapore by 1st Aug.
So please confirm what you stated is true.. Thanks.
Just got it!! it replaced my Nokia n95 8GB which i had for 2 years! the phone is great, a multimedia monster, played movies and tv episodes i downloaded from the internet flawlessly! touch response is very good, battery isn't better than n95, web browsing is excellent! Worth the money believe me!
was released in Kuwait yesterday and it costs 239KD
I simply have no idea why some fanboys come to other phone's forum to try and spoil their novelty. why don't you guys just go and brag in your own forum?
mind you all you wanna buy omnia hd....it's really an amazing phone...u know nothing is perfect. there's gotta be some lags of it but mind u they are evn not the biggest deal...u possibly wouln't notice a lil' and in some cases not having something quite useless in ur phone while it packs the best spec of the mobile world yet....so those guys who are sayin that they owned omnia HD and found it very irritable then dont believe them...they are just jealous not being able to afford it....I own it and possibly this is the best phone I've used...I'd never been a Samsung fan (it WAS nokia) but this single phone made me....but not a BLIND fan like those iPhone guys...OHD rocks.......
RAYAN, 17 Jul 2009Ed, Thanks for your nice post. How much it costs in Germany?Sorry, I do not know the price in Germany. I know in Spain is around €650. In the UK you get it from free with the contract.

how did you download the garmin xt software and where can i get it from??I downloaded it with Bittorrent.
If you already have the omnia HD, this a website you MUST visit: http://samsungi8910omnia.com/
Loads of info, applications, etc. Enter the forum. There is information about any topic related to this phone (I read there the tricks to make the battery last longer and also got there all the info on how to download and install the GarminXT).
Really, the more I get into this phone, the more I like it.
PS: By the way, since 7am until 5:44pm I have lost less than a third of the battery and I have made 4 calls lasting around 30 min all of them.
Imran, 17 Jul 2009As two others mentioned don't just listen to one person who appears to be a fanboy. I don't ha... moreThe quality of the calls (sorry, I forgot to mention the main feature of the phones :P) is absolutely fine. It has not dropped any call so far. I use Orange network and it is quite good (at least it is better at my home than O2 used to be).
