Anonymous, 25 Aug 2008You are missing my point. That is exactly what I was trying to say about emails. You don't h... moreGuess you are the one that dont really understand what's going on...
did you read on some of the user that have both omnia and iphone?- they agreed if you hope
for a mp3 player and a phone then iphone is the one..
You simply behaving just like a child and keep insisting you are right when the fact is
i have told you that Omnia doesnt hang easily or lag. You never try it so you dont
understand. how many times must i repeat myself?
"Iphone users do not need expansion slots because we do not intend to use our iphones as an
external hard drive. We have computers at home."- if iphone do not intend to use our iphones
as an external hard drive then why is the 8G and 16G for?Why did you keep slapping yourself
with your own words? You never realised that? please go back and read your own post. Your
stand is not firm. your sentence is twisting here and there.. one moment good the next
moment not good..Can you please be more exact and precise?expansion slot is for the
convenient of adding more memory(this is an advantage and is a common sense).
"2mp is enough for cameraphones, unless you blow up your pictures taken from your phone. Do
you? So 2mp makes more sense for camera phones (for now), until new technology comes out for
phones that could equal the quality of prints from standalone cameras. But where not there
yet."- Do you always bring your camera everywhere? at time when theres will be occasion yet
you never bring your camera, omnia will never disappoint you with its camera. Please
visualise some unforseen circumstances. Not everyone does bring camera with them all days..
"BT for headset is all that we need for our iphone. It is to protect us from hackers, and
bad data that can be transmitted into our phones via BT that corrupt our files."- Do you
really encounter alot of virus for mobile?Please stop being naive..other than symbian which
is quite sometimes ago theres really no virus for mobile yet..somemore for iphone which is
actually so new.You are using your so-called reason that is really so invalid and insisting
that you are right..This is really proving to us that you are a kid..
You keep insisting iphone the best because of UI but i really dont understand why cant you
see the point that if we compare in term of spec Omnia is really better?
Pls stop arguing with someone who wish to have everything at home at their computer desk.
Its lowering your status, from your reply i can see u are good user of wm for which this
phone omnia is now a best choice which some phone cannot compare with but rather stating that they :
1) Dont need bluetooth, rather use computer at home cause scare of being hack..so call..
2) Dont need high end camera cause..he claim that 2mp is enough... wao.. i dont catch him
3) Dont need expansion slot. cause again can use home computer.
All this come to a conclusion, he bring his "computer" together with his phone out everytime... hahahh...
what a laughing stock!
If then go buy a laptop rather than commenting other phone when your phone cant do sample things that
a normal nokia low end phone can do!
such as send MMS to share precious moment, send file with bluetooth.
And pls, if u are really know nothing about phone, pls go read up
and we will be happy for u to carry a
1) High end camera with you when u want to take photo which your iphone cannot cop with the quality
2) Bring your laptop and maybe a low end phone along so u can transfer here and there to send MMS
3) Oops forget u need to bring your charger along if not your laptop will run out of power.
Hi whoever name himself as Anonymous,
Pls do consider stating your name as we wish to know which clever alex u are.
We really wish we can help u understand what is "specification" and what is "one liking"
Dont make this thread as if is your home computer, this is a thread to let others know
about the pro and cro and not to stating how good your Iphone is.
why is omnia better IYO?
are you going on features alone? or how it operates?
Uk guy confused, 25 Aug 2008ive been reading these comments now for a while and just can't decide which is the better phon... moreI don´t know what will you decide, but I have both I-phone 3g and Omnia. If you ask me, definitely Omnia. I´ve read all the posts from people who have some problems with omnia, but mine works just great. I´ve purchase mine in USA, software is HG3, like I said, no problems at all.
ive been reading these comments now for a while and just can't decide which is the better phone out of the iphone or the omnia
i want to make a purchase soon but im so undecided on what to buy
i really want the iphone but then do i?
i realy want the omnia, but it doesnt seem as fluent or nice to use, but has extra features on it
if im signing an 18 month contract i want a phone that will serve me well
some help please ppl ;)
Complete waste of time asking Vodafone UK for any sort of deal even comparing with iphone. They are simply unwilling and uninterested in doing business based on a phone where they think demand will exceed supply. As I posted before, watch out if you get an Omnia on a price plan with Vodafone as they will charge you an additional £5 per month to use the Sat Nav, therefore the get the phone free you are looking at a minimum of £40 per month, with a load of bundled add ons which you won't probably use up. So after all the waiting and a great phone trust the UK carriers to offer a crap deal.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970You are missing my point. That is exactly what I was trying to say about emails. You don't have to wait 'til you get home to check your emails if you have the iphone. There is nothing shallow about appreciating a phone that works smoothly and effortlessly like the iphone. What's shallow is wanting a phone with a bunch of extra features, but does not really perform well and produces compromising results. Go to Omnia forums and see what problems users have with the omnia. Unresponsive screen, lag time, etc... Some people are even complaining that it gives them an error message of insufficient memory when they have not even saved anything, LOL. And before you call me shallow, u may want to preach that to your fellow omnia fans on how they pull down the iphone. So what if the omnia has more extra features than the iphone? It does not make it the better phone. Maybe for people who cannot afford a digital camera it would. But for iphone users, nah, the camera on our iphone is our last resort. We'd rather use a standalone camera and get high quality results than using a camera phone with 5mp. Apple does not compete by packing the iphone with tons of extra features producing mediocre results. It only wants to focus on features that are really useful and provide great results.
Iphone users do not need expansion slots because we do not intend to use our iphones as an external hard drive. We have computers at home.
2mp is enough for cameraphones, unless you blow up your pictures taken from your phone. Do you? So 2mp makes more sense for camera phones (for now), until new technology comes out for phones that could equal the quality of prints from standalone cameras. But where not there yet.
BT for headset is all that we need for our iphone. It is to protect us from hackers, and bad data that can be transmitted into our phones via BT that corrupt our files.
No one is stopping you from getting your omnia. It's just funny to read silly comments from omnia fans mocking the iphone, when the omnia cannot even match the iphone's performance and quality. Iphone has a glass screen, omnia uses plastic. Iphone has better mp3 audio quality. Iphone has a half VGA screen, while omnia only has QVGA. Iphone is legible under sunlight, omnia is not. Those are the most basic features of a phone, and omnia cannot even attain a good quality on those features. So they focus on packing the omnia with tons of extra features, LOL.
Hey everyone, please take note that there are several anonymous users here and you can't keep pointing on one person as "anonymous". Please use your codenames/nicknames to avoid confusion..
i just bought my omnia. and i love it!!!! just what i need in a cellphone..a truly all in one phone!
it seems that you are the first to have started all this yet now you are pointing fingers at others and making so much comments.. its obvious you are the children here..You keep slapping yourself with your own words.. we do make comments about the phone but its you who is the one that keep making unneccesary statement.. Please be more mature in your sentence..furthermore i never said omnia is cheap, my message is that it is value for money rather than cheap..
Hi Irwin, omnia interface is abit lag if too many apps(5 apps or more) are opened and without proper shutdown..or else if one or two apps is opened together, there shouldnt be any problems..
from what i read from forum guess there wil be more later firmware which will actually improved on this..
In my point of view, interface can be improved with latest firmware but specification is something that is not able to be improved on..
I am a Iphone 3G user, and I am ok with the phone, Yes I know its limitations and maybe I should have waited for this.
To the people who have this phone, how is it?
Is the interface smooth, little lag?
From its feature spec, it looks indeed the best touch screen phone.
Just wanted to know from the people who already own this phone.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970it will be available in about 3 months i was told but may be sooner i just went into my local optus shop and asked
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Cheap! Have you checked the price of the Omnia???????? Obviously not. It runs about $600-700.
Let's put it this way people.
The iphone is like a base model of BMW. Not a lot of features but drives magnificently & very comfortable & quiet. The Omnia would be a Kia, but packed advanced features like a navigation system, back up camera, parking sensors, 19 inch chrome wheels, power seats, has a microwave oven, and a washing machine and dryer in the trunk, and much, much more.
Now, which car would you rather drive? =)
jeetu , 24 Aug 2008U talking 2 diff things first u said iphone has no short cmg , then u say it lacks so much, u ... moreI never said that the iphone does not have shortcomings. All phones do. So don't put words in my mouth. When you say essential, that would mean that the device will not work w/out that feature. Not being able to forward sms will not make the phone inoperable. So it is not essential. Not having a keypad is a problem. BT file transfers is nice to have, but not essential. I can email. Basic features would be a screen that is legible in the dark and under the sunlight. Omnia does not even have that. Basic is also a UI that works smoothly, and I've heard that the Omnia also suffers from that. What's basic is a touchscreen that is responsive, and the Omnia is not that responsive either. Now those are the basics among all the basics. What good are all those features when you get frustrated using them because of lag time, unsresponsiveness and crash issues? What? You said "if i want to forward my work stuff to my work people i shld mail them and wait till they go hme and check their mail" Don't you have a PC at work? LOL. And why are you using cellphones at work to send files? LOL. You must be from a developing 3rd world country. Well, the iphone is not really for third world countries. Sorry if I have offended you, but it's true. We in the US do not use our cellphones to transfer files because we have PC's at work, not typewriters. And it is annoying for us iphone users to see 3rd world people hating the iphone because it does not serve their needs. So what if iphone uses Samsung processors? As long as it works fine. At least Apple uses it right. Samsung could not even use their processors to work smoothly on their touch UI. So did Samsung come up with multi-touch since Apple gets their processors from Samsung? Having more features does not mean more advanced. I'd still prefer a base model BMW, than a Kia with navigation system.
would b a half decent samsung phone if was as wide as iphone very poor immatation and i dont even like iphone! My mate got this and screen quality is poor camera very poor and sound quality very very poor! But to samsung fans this will prob be there version of nokia n70!
