for those who have flashed their omnia with winmo6.5, please share your experiences with it. is it great? would you recommend us to upgrade to winmo 6.5? we need your response, quick.
How do i use the second camera just for taking pictures and not for video calling? That is if it was possible. Thanks.
If you ask me about battery life, I would say that its great. Upgrading from firmware DXHH3 to the latest DXIA5 from the Asia Samsung website really gave a lot of improvement as to battery life.. I'm enjoying my wifi use, even using Skype for voice calls and Fring for chat. Now, my only problem is to find the best case protector for this investment. Would you recommend Capdase Silicone Case with Hard Screen protect for this? I find the bifold leather case bothersome because its bulky already when folded open..
Obviously, this phone is good. There are a few people here and there who don't like it. SO WHAT?
Alot more people like it then dont, and GSMarena + phonearena said that this is a great phone. I dont know about you but I think its usually pretty good to trust an EXPERTs review. Dont you think?
Had the Omnia since December and it is great. I have an MP3 player, a decent camera and a phone in the same package! Plus with a little tweeking, GPS.
Samsung's additions to windows mobile are nice, too. If I had to complain the phone is a bit sluggish. Patience is a virtue though, right?
This phone rocks when used with SPB mobile shell 3.0, as a windows mobile interface overlay. Without it, I found it difficult to deal with. The shipped widget setup is terrible. Add SPB mobile shell 3.0, and you are getting as close to the iphone interace as you will get on windows mobile. It has actually been more reliable and enjoyable than the htc touch devices I have used, though I still like to have a physical keyboard. The camera in this phone is one of the best on a mobile phone device. This techie recommends this phone!
Anonymous, 12 Jun 2009In my opinion no this phone is over priced and under performs in terms of a phone which is one... morethe phone batt is very good if u update ur rom. wat i wan to say is, u r not a smartuser. i owned many phones b4(n73, n95 8gb, iphone, touch pro etc) this is the best if u can use it smartly.
In my opinion no this phone is over priced and under performs in terms of a phone which is one of the aspects of its design. The battery life is pathetic and yet it is supposed to handle various applications. Becuareful you don't find yourself lost because you used the GPS and the bettery died and now you can not even make a phone call and all this can happen with an hour or two. The volume is very low when playing music and the when the phone rings. I do not think that saying you need to be smart to use this phone is a good excuse, as thats got nothing to do with its terrible battery life. This is the only item i ever regret purchasing. Those who have this phone have good things to say about it becuase they want to make themselves feel better but they even know its a bad chouce in a phone as in my opinion. ( South Africa )
My most recent message to Samsung's help line on my trouble with the Today2 widget:
It seems that in the operating software of the Omnia, I suspect that this is in the firmware, the finger mouse has priority one. This results that the phone responds immediately to a finger mouse input regardless what other processes are running in the back ground. When its really busy doing something else, it will at least bring the busy thingy on the screen indicating that it acknowledge the command and will respond as soon as processor power is available.
Screen taps however, has a much lower priority, so when pressing on the screen, the phone disregards the command and first finishes whatever it trying to do before responding to that command.
THIS IS VERY FRUSTRATING!!!!!
within 3 months of purchase, no button is working including the screen, i cant do anything with the phone, its useless. this is my 1st samsung phone and im not impressed
after all is this mobile good or not?....we just want to know that....ithink its great except its camera when shooting at daylight
I have had the Omnia i910 from Verizon for as long as it's been available. At first I was disgusted with how Verizon crippled the phone but after visiting MoDaCo forums and finding the updates and ROM's that those guys have come up with(especially BlazingWolf)this phone can't touch anything else on the market. The only reason i can see why people don't like it is because it's a smartphone and you kinda have to be smarter than it to use it. It's not meant to be an "entertainment" phone, it's meant to be a serious working phone for the business professional and that it is! With the update from BW that incorporates WM6.5 features and unlocks the GPS, the Office Mobile Suite and the other features that it offers you can't go wrong. Don't be intimidated by the ROM update process, the guys at MoDaCo have made it very simple. I love this phone!!!!!
Boys I did find a really great website to apply,download programs and other staff for this phone go here
http://www.freewarepocketpc.net/ is other choice you have,by the way I am using one of the programs from this page wich I really recomend is the (Nitrogen player)for the music collection and sound is the best on the Omnia,it has a power saver to turn off the Screen wich is something you can not do with WMP.
Greetings from Costa Rica!
