This phone has so many major bugs. The screen blacks out for no reason at all. Defective haptic feedback, memory error problems, screen scratches easily, poor legibility under sunlight, washed out qvga display, so-so photo quality, unresponsive touchscreen at times, practically useless front camera (no one uses video calling), no 3.5mm jack, usb does not charge battery, etc. So much for its impressive specs. Oh well.
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2008look at settings in camera mode and change where they are saved to, make sure its "storage card"i can only save pics from camera on storage card or my device. it will not let me select my storage. this might be because i have spb mobile shell and for some reason all data on my storage was transferred to a file called my storage 2 (which is not listed). anybody know how to fix this? help would be much appreciated. thx.

Dave, 18 Sep 2008I heard that there is no 16Gb version of this phone, only the 8Gb, and the 16Gb is available ... moreyes mine is 16gig with 16gig card totaling 32gig. sweet. exclusive to orange so other providers have to lie
Does anyone know the video recording resolution? Normally on here they say if it's qvga or vga but nothing on this phone.
Anonymous, 18 Sep 2008yes there is a 16bg version available but you would have to check your location, also it does ... moreThanks Mr. Anon,,
My location is the UK but I don't know if this is a location where a 16Gb phone would be available...do you?
and that would be some great Memory in conjunction with a 16Gb SD Card
can you create groups for contacts and is it possible to send sms to a group specific
s3n, 18 Sep 2008Dear readers,
I'd like to ask your opinion about things below:
1. Will omnia price go lower ... morewell, N96 and Omnia are two completely different kinds of handsets....
non touch screen
Dual ARM 9 264 MHz CPU - similar to N73 (freezes often)
Carl Zeiss optics - i dont see any better than normal 5mp cameras...its just a stupid name
2.8 inches is not really acceptable nowadays :S
i can just say that the good point about N96 is the 16M display which would be better than Omnia....but the resolution is the same (practically)
larger screen with 3.2 inches
better in surfing the net when using wifi as u can control it practically
s3n, 18 Sep 2008Friends,
I heard Samsung will launch Samsung's Omnia i908 handset in Taiwan in this September... morei900 is the original name for the Omnia
i908 is the Local product name for Taiwan and Hong Kong, therefore, i900 towards Taiwan and HK are parallel products
I heard Samsung will launch Samsung's Omnia i908 handset in Taiwan in this September. Will this promo affect the i900? Especially the price.
Btw, any info about this hand set?
I'd like to ask your opinion about things below:
1. Will omnia price go lower if Nokia released their N96?
2. Do omnia "anti-sun screen" so bugging it users?
Omnia, 18 Sep 2008Hey friends I tried updating my phone fm site, n did as per instructions...But i got error in... morewhere did you update from?, as far as i can make out there is alot of confusion about version numbers, and its always best to wait for a specific update from your country, as far as im aware the only updates available are for singapore, malaysia, and france. and installing an update from a handset not from one of those countries is risky. although i have heard it can be done. but there are issues updating from a machine running vista, and you are advised to do the upgrade from an xp machine. i was thinking of doin the singapore update on my uk phone, but have read to many reports of peoples phones not working or not accepting the update, so i will wait until there is an official uk update, as painful as it is to wait..!! http: //www. modaco .com, paul offers a very good guide on how to do it! but it may be a samsung service center for you phone im affraid!!!
Dave, 18 Sep 2008I heard that there is no 16Gb version of this phone, only the 8Gb, and the 16Gb is available ... moreyes there is a 16bg version available but you would have to check your location, also it does accept a 16gb card, so the potential memory is 32gb. but yes you do have to be careful as quite a few places advertise it as a 16gb when the actual physical mamory is only 8gb.
I tried updating my phone fm site, n did as per instructions...But i got error in my PC, n since then my phone isnt starting at all.....I tried to restart, pressed reset button near restart...but nothing is happening..please give me solution as to how do i start my phone....
Thanks in adv.
Dave, 18 Sep 2008I heard that there is no 16Gb version of this phone, only the 8Gb, and the 16Gb is available ... moreI live in United Arab Emirates, in the shop here they only sell the Omnia 16Gb version.
You can put 8 Gb microSd card, so the total memory will be 24Gb.
I heard that there is no 16Gb version of this phone, only the 8Gb, and the 16Gb is available only when an 8Gb SD card is added, therefire totalling 16Gb. Is this true or does the 16Gb versiona actulay have 16Gb which would be expandable to 24Gb with an 8Gb SD Card?
Also, woould this phone accept the new 16Gb SD cards?...therefore possibly totalling 32Gb?
