Browsing is a breeze and the only niggle I've come across is that Orange have effectively 'blocked' youtube videos; the site opens and you can view comments but you can't view the videos, however small. This may be a good thing though because Orange's data bundle is an appalling 500Mb (compared with unlimited with O2 and 1 Gb with T-Mobile).
Apps install fine on them (Symbian S60 5th edition) although I've only installed a couple as most aren't really my thing.
For Facebook though use the iphone link which is:
http://iphone.facebook.com . It's a joy to use and it's easier on your data allowance as well. It has WiFi too and I try to use this option for the internet as much as I can.
The only drawback is the sound accompanying video recordings but hopefully this will be resolved soon with a firmware update.
This really is a lovely phone - the best I've ever owned. I love it.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970i agree.. i really want this.. when will it come out in australia.. i talked to a phone retailer and he said october.. NOO thats too long away :(
then people here keeping saying
Q2 of this year.. before the end of july..
In primitive specification it had “FM TRANSMITER “ but why in new spec it is omitted ?!!
I live in UK and defo don't have the money fot a sim-free but I really want this phone so it looks like Orange is my only option. I understand Orange put their own software on this phone but can anyone explain to me why this is such a bad thing and what kind of stuff/apps is it going to stop me from doing? And is there a way round it?
At the end of the day I don't have an iPod or good camera so I like a phone which is good for music/pics. I only really use the phone for calls/texts (obviously), music player, standard web browsing (facebook, youtube, bbc, ebay etc) and taking videos/pics - is Orange going to affect this stuff?
"hopefully will release end of June"
Damn it .. We have to wait for another month to get it here in the Middle East :(
Can't wait to get mine !
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970it will come soon in the United Arab Emirates.... i called samsung (Dubai), and they told me hopefully will release end of June :)
chech this web site for Axiom Telecom in UAE :)
i think this mobile has wonderful Specifications... but the only thing that i hate is the size,,, after seeing the pics of the Omnia next to the iPhone i think that Omnia is way huge...
i'm sure that a lot of people well love this one
10 freeware for the samsung S60.
stefan, 25 May 2009Does anyone has found any web browser working on omnia hd (orange crap) ????? Try bolt browser it works fine in my viewty
can anybody make a professional extended review for this amazing phone ?
today I saw Windows Mobile6.5 and I'm taking my words back about WM:)
WM6.1 was really crap and not really suitable for a good touchscreen, I mean a capacitive screen.
but today I saw WM6.5 and I have to admit, that it's so muuuch better than old WM version, and would be nice to see it on Omnia HD or any other big capacitive screen:)
for Symbian UI is good anyway:)
