I've watched a few videos and read a few reviews on the Omnia HD to try and better educate myself. What i found was:
1) It has HD video recording and an 8MP camera which most people say 'big deal', but hey would you rather have a higher MP camera or a lower?
2) It has a beautiful big screen full of vibrant colors thanks to the OLED
3) It has an FM transmitter which means you can basically take your music with you anywhere that has a radio (be that a car or your friends house)
4) You can watch HD videos on the phone and they actually run smoothly
5) The phone as a whole package seems very pulled together and runs smoothly going through the menus and performing tasks just seem to work on this phone.. where as with a lot of recently released phones and even soon to be released phones you see annoying spikes of lag (in areas that shouldn't be) and just a sluggish system.
The only negative i can see so far without having a chance to play with it in person is the fact that it doesnt have a TV out feature which isnt an absolute necessity, but would be nice :)
come on guys goodlooking person... idou maybe better looking for you but remember beauty is in the eye of the beholder. but it's unfair to say that idou got better performance when you didnt even got to lay hands on both phones. nothing wrong o favor though but atleast try it u might change your statement about that...
the goodlooking, 21 Feb 2009why all of you love this phone he is so ugly Idou is better looking and have better performance idou specs don't even say how much memory it can hold for sd card!!!
the goodlooking, 21 Feb 2009why all of you love this phone he is so ugly Idou is better looking and have better performance This has HD video recording. What does idou have lousy qvga video recording like all the other se models! This is also a better looking phone!
My next phone will w8 for it to come out,
The Jack of all Trades
why all of you love this phone he is so ugly
Idou is better looking and have better performance
King Omnia HD, 21 Feb 2009If they dont know much about the specification then why did they announce......Omnia HD video ... moreBecause SE Idou is prototype, when Samsung Omnia HD almost final version. SE Idou doesn't have product code like i8910(Omnia HD) or W995(Hikaru), a typical prototype.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970If they dont know much about the specification then why did they announce......Omnia HD video recording is much superior to n95..... Omnia HD is trillion times better than idou coz
-Omnia HD has HD video recording(1024x720 24 fps).
-Omnia HD has HDMI port
-Omnia HD has 16 million OLED 3.7 inch screen compared to idous 16m TFT 3.5 inch screen.
-Omnia HD can play higher bitrate videos whereas idou unknown.
-Omnia HD runs on Symbian s60v5 whereas idou not EXACTLY known about the OS.
-Omnia HD has anti scratch surface, idou does not have it.
-Omnia HD has 16 gb internal mem and expandable upto 32gb.
-Omnia HD has latest 600mhz processor, 128mb ram and a dedicated graphics accelerator.....
Still there are many advantages. Samsung Omnia HD has cleared its specification and Idou announced the phone with UNKNOWN specifications which is weird.....
Honestly/... this phone killed those N'series and other flagship phone...

If Idou has 720p video, they would have announced at the show. Sony Ericsson can never make good video on camera, this is why they didn't show the video specs.
Ok the phone looks like any other samsung,LG or apple. But it records HD video. Which means it may take the place of my camcorder. NOKIA and SONY make ugly phones they need to copy samsung and LG. ALSO Why would you buy a phone with less features when you can buy the i8910 Omnia HD. It has symbian os which means you can get a app for just about anything. This has to be the best phone i ever seen. I like all the new phones but samsung is urinating all over the competition
nattiii, 20 Feb 2009Looks like LG KF750 Secret :pall the phone look the same lg ,samsung ,apple but they are different in the inside.
All in all I think the Omnia HD is a better overall performer than the Idou as the latter lacks a long list of specs (starting with a 3.5mm jack)... I think the real battle is between the months old Touch HD and the recent Omnia HD!!!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Well my friend you're right, the greatest camera phone to be released was prevailed by Sony-Ericsson - the IDUO. Its 12.1 megapixel camera is more greater than proposed Samsung's SCH-B600. In optical supremacy it is the leader but in versatility, the Omnia remains the greatest.
After Samsung released the greatest mobile/PDA for versatility in the market, they again prevail its twin (the better one). People keep arguing the functionality while they can see the sheet it show. For iPhone fanatics, better think. Why spend money, parts and functionality while you can enjoy the greatness Omnia has to offer?!
alas screen is lovely but please... 800x480.... i want those extra pixels man...and android on it...then my mobile life will be complete... for at least a few more months...
