After using the phone for a week, phone display blacked out one day while I was trying to change battery settings to the most efficient power saving mode. Tried both soft and hard reset, but screen is still not reacting. Sent it in to Samsung service centre on 15 Sep, diagnosed to be software issue, technician upgraded my software, got it back same evening. Display blacked out again when I tried to change the battery settings. Brought back to Samsung service centre again on 16 Sep, no news till now.
Anyone have similar experience? or m I just unlucky getting a faulty set?
How is Bluetooth Stereo quality (A2DP)in Omnia. Have anyone tested?
I use SE HBH-DS205 for my P3600. The sound quality is very good but it used 100% CPU and make everything so slow when I am listening Music.
I hope Omnia should handle A2DP well, then, we don't need 3.5 mm stereo jack.
Love my Omnia, however people saying it is hard to hear me on the phone.... are there any adjustments for this, any suggestions, tried different volume setting ...no help
Anonymous, 18 Sep 2008I think the choice now are between Samsung Omnia and HTC Touch HD. SE Xperia are made by HTC.
... moreYeah, You are right. Omnia is the best choice. I would have bought if it has 800 x 480 resolution screen.
I want to use RDP a lot for my business that I can't do something with my phone. But low resolution screen is giving me trouble for RDP. for example, HTC P3600.
If I don't need this feature, definitely, I will go for Omnia.
I hope next Samsung's WM device would be a bit better. I tested Omnia, it is simply a wonderful device.
Anonymous, 18 Sep 2008I am keeping the money from selling my OMNIA to buy Sony X1. Sony rules..... I hope....I think the choice now are between Samsung Omnia and HTC Touch HD. SE Xperia are made by HTC.
From review in other site, Xperia has useless UI. Person from SE also said that the next Xperia generation are not WM phone anymore.
3D TouchFLO UI from HTC are more gorgeous, but TouchWIZ UI from Samsung are more usefull.
I think Samsung Omnia still the best choice right now. If u have a problem, just update the firmware.
My Omnia running excelent after firmware update.
comparing to n95 is the photo taken from onmia camera clear as it?

I am selling it away after 2 months of usage. Overall ok, but phone keeps hanging. Many times ppl call but no ringtone and can only see the red light flashing. So I have to plug out the battery and turn on again. Camera quality is lousy, cannot even beat a sony 3.2mp, very pixelated. However, the GPS agis map is good. I am gonna miss tis feature. Anyway, not worth buying unless it is going for USD250 no contract. Cheers
HTC HD or SONY X1 or SAMSUNG Omnia ????
- a good resolution and large screen
- don't like the design
- where the hell is LED or Flash for camera?
- HTC doesn't know what they are doing sometimes
- I love the specs but not the ugly design
- how do you scroll up and down?
- Touch flo 3D ( well not for all programs )?
- like everything except the Keyboard
- awesome design
- a good size and weight
- simple yet elegant design (not like shinny HTC... always d.a.m.n ugly with finger prints)
- very fast processor
- need more RAM (should have 256 MB)
- Low screen resolution, should have 800 x 480
- not a standard USB port
Anonymous, 16 Sep 2008I'm in the circle of realistic people. 7000 songs would equal to around 200 days of nonstop p... morePlease leave your silly presumptions at the door – I want 7,000+ songs not because I want to sit there for 200 days straight, but because I never know what I might feel like listening to. I don't want to sit there regretting that I hadn't copied Song X or Album Y to my all-in-one device when I really want to listen to something. And yes, a 16gb iPhone is laughable when the Omnia supports up to 32gb of storage. You are clearly a casual music listener if you think 7,000+ songs is over the top – that's nothing for a hardcore music fan/aficionado like myself. Re your absurd "on the go/not external drive" comment – I want to use my all-in-one while walking, in the car, at a friends house, connected to my home theatre, etc – this demands functionality that the Omnia fulfills but the iPhone doesn't (I already have a 1tb QNAP TS-109 connected to my home network/theatre btw). In future, please think before making ill-informed comments and allowing your blatant fanboyism cloud your judgement.
COOOOL!!! This phone is coming to US ATT. I will wait for this phone. The Iphone will definitely have a competition in ATT.

when i take pictures for some stupid reason they are saved in the ram or rom. so after only about 10 pics i cannot take anymore pics and get a not enough storage message. this is obviously stupid. anybody know how to get the omnia to save photos taken with camera on the 16gb hard drive (my storage? help would be much appreciated. thx
Imran, 17 Sep 2008Hello everyone,
I got my Omnia. I have some questions. Please someone answer.
1. How can... moreAs a fellow Omnia holder, goto Settings, Phone settings, scroll the right arrow key to the end at other settings, click band, then click get settings, if your US choose 850/1900 if your UK then choose the obvious 900/1800. If you choose auto, it will automatically choose your region but also connect you to 3g/UMTS where possible. Hope this helps,
Does this thing come with a stylus. If not then whats point in handwriting recognition
Omnia is overall the best wm phone today. The screen is just ok not good neither bad just ok but all the other values are great. HTC's latest release touch hd is supposed to be better but how? It CANNOT write 640*480 video like omnia and with 5MP camera it SHOULD be capable of that, it has not got xenon flash it HASN'T GOT EVEN FLASH!, it has not 8 or 16 GB internal memory like omnia, it has the same not well functionable not very user friendly TouchFLO system of diamond and pro and the same processor with them slower than omnia and 1.3 s.a.r value which all can understand how much your head gets fried. So, how can it be better? Omnia and again Omnia and in better price also.
