In ref to Phones4u orders, Just spoke to a nice chap in Customer Services. The website is slightly misleading - they are unsure of where the stock is at this moment in time, as they have no direct link to the w/house. He did confirm system still said delivery 21st May, but this is actually THE DATE OF DISPATCH FROM THE WAREHOUSE, not home delivery. That should be friday. He advised me my order had been passed for dispatch as soon as it was in stock.
stefan ==> I would like to know how is the feel when you touch the phone ? Is it like the pixon or Nokia 5800 ? because there is a big difference between these phones.

i really dont know why they made it like that, i mean for them its not a problem, they will not fix it because they want it to be like that..
and we all dont know the reason.

can you tell me about the daily wear-n-tear, given that you take the phone to work. What about scratching, peeling or denting. Is the phone sturdy and durable or is it vulnerable to any of the above
Also, what about battery life with average use?
god i just watched the youtube video sample linked below,the sound is totally horrendous like something off the first video recording capable phones of 6 or 7 years ago,maybe worse. Considering the 720p isn't all that much better than d1 videos on other phones (which the ps3 can upscale very nicely!!),its questionably slab like looks and hefty price i think this phone will only appeal to a small particular market
today i took this "phone" to work which is roughly 2miles from city center of belfast.I have just lost patience :-( outside of the building 3g with 2 bars(where is 3g+) inside i'm getting gprs :-( web browser:gsmarena web page is over 500kb imagine how many webpages a day u can view with 500mb limit a month..yes opera mini is partly working but i can guarantied to anyone that u will not use it for more than 5min.other browsers r noy compatible.
P4U should still deliver tomorrow, The shops and the Online side of it are not linked (hence why you cant take online orders back to stores)... The stores are supposed to recieve them tomorrow or friday, so that conincides with 21st Online deliveries.
Anonymous, 20 May 2009I ordered mine yesterday and they said I would recive my phone on tuesday 26 may. From Phones 4 umine syill says 21st.i was gona order from one of there stores but there only doin £40 a month in store,they said they would txt me when they get it in,still havent had a txt yet so i'll just have to hope i get it in the morning,i was in orange and could have taken one but had to pay £80 for the phone then £35 a month,if i still had my second job i would have done it but now need to save money where i can.

go look and hear for yourself, it's just horrible:
HD lover, 20 May 2009Is the Omnia HD will still use the low-quality AMR Narrow Band codec at 8000Hz 16 bit 2 channe... moreYes, they will sell the Omnia HD with the very low-quality AMR Narrow Band codec at 8000Hz 16 bit 2 channel 12.8 Kbps bit rate, can't believe it myself, such a good quality phone with an amazing screen, mega camera with HD recording and crazy specs BUT WITH very low quality sound recording....I was about to buy it, but i will wait to see some feedback about that problem!
Is the Omnia HD will still use the low-quality AMR Narrow Band codec at 8000Hz 16 bit 2 channel 12.8 Kbps bit rate???? If, yes i won't buy it! Great video recording with crappy sound! The reason why: not to stress the ARM CPU too heavily when recording HD video...come on Samsung, find a way to get better sound recording!
