This is stupid WinMo device. Samsung should stick to their clamshell designs and leave the WinMo devices to companies with more experience.
1- the camera is aweful, the flash is useless and the pic is terrible, its just a 5 MP camera with no quality whatsoever.
2- the optical scroll key is something which will make u furious,very difficult to navigate .u cant scroll through web pages easily. try scrolling through your contacts. You will want to bang your head to the wall
3- there is an Accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate.
engineers at samsung think WinMo users are a bunch of kids who need toys.why does it have 7 diff ways of rotating the screen? whats the use?
4- The 256K color screen (65K effective) is not as sharp as the ones u see on the HTC's, plus the screen size is not standard. Its almost impossible to see whats on the screen in sunlight
5- why the hell the stylus has to be attached to the lanyard. u cant keep your phone in any pouch because the the stylus will be dangling or if u put it in your jeans pocket either u will break the stylus or scratch the phone.Whats smart in that design?
6- because of its design its a very slippery phone.
these were the problems i have faced with this device. Its also got some positive points, but the negative points are so bright that u would never want to look at the bright side.
Dear Omnia users,
I have few questions about it. Please help me with answer.
1) It was suffering for battery problem with it’s beginning ROM. I read in review that it has been shorted out with latest version of ROM. Is it correct?
2) I read in many review that it is with an uncommon resolution of 240 x 400 pixels. That will be the reason of incomparability with other program. What is your opinion about it?
3) What about the speaker quality. Is it stereophonic or mono? Is it loud enough to listen songs / movie etc?
4) Samsung generally uses “Digital Natural Sound Engine” (DNSe verson 2 or 3) for their MP3 / MP 4 player. Is it available with Omina?
5) I read in review about poor legibility at sunlight. Is it so poor that it is very difficult to use at outdoor?
6) There is support for DivX and XDiv file out of the box. Is it also capable for running RMVB files (Real movie)?
Please Omnia users help me answering those questions. I want to purchase Omnia, but I am felling problem with those matter.
yeah im currently ustilising this pda, it's touch screen is inaccurate. its really annoying, also sending music files is possible but it still sucks because you cannot save it to the mass memory. otherwise great

It strange, I mean the Omnia has an MS operating system and Voice Command (MS VC 1.2) that does work for starting programmes etc, why not adapt this feature to type a person dictating? The iPhone has it but Omnia is cheaper option for me to purchase. Thx help. Colin

I don´t understand why my Omnia all the time connects automatically to gprs. It´s supposed to kill battery life, isn´t? And why it happens? I don´t have any Outlook account configured, but from time to time, I see how this thing connect itself to the gprs. Anybody knows something about this? Thanks
