"The Omnia proved rather fast in the Write operation (copying from PC to handset) but was some 30% slower in Read (copying from handset to PC)"
* PC to handset -> 3.9 MB/s (write)
* Handset to PC -> 5.2MB/s (read)
Something is wrong here...
Oszieuk, 03 Aug 2008When will someone give us a release date for this phone in the UK. All the phone shops deny it... moreA previous post said to call Samsung which I did and they said week 33 which is 18 August. However, as Peter is suggesting a week later. I can't believe it can viably be much later otherwise people, me included will buy another brand. I think what is happening is that after the manufacturers "release" the phone for sale, the networks test them, guage the reactions to the phone then work out what for them is the optimum price. When all that is done, and they arrange distribution to the stores, we then get our hands on the product. Do we all (or even majority) think it would be better if we were given one, clear date of availability and they kept to that save endless speculation and disappointment? Probably save multiple calls to the networks as well.
Went into Vodafone and they said that it will be avaliable on contract 24th august.
Phones4u also confirmed this date!
Went into Vodafone yesterday and they confirmed that it will be avaliable on 24th August
Then went into Phones4u and also confirmed it would be avaliable on Vodafone on the same date
When will someone give us a release date for this phone in the UK. All the phone shops deny it's existance and Samsung just don't answer
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970It's not yet available in the Philippines. ;-) Just called Samsung Hotline's yesterday. :-) Too bad. for us.
Can Samsung Omnia perform do multiple sending of sms (Ex. Sending an SMS Message for more than two or more persons)? I'm curios abou this because Apple I-Phone can't perform such thing.
Yeah, but that confuses me a bit.
Why mention the 256K in the first place when only 65K will work?
Hi, simple question here.
On the Specs page it says: 256K colors (65K effective). So which is it?

numei, 03 Aug 2008my english is bad but what does flight mode mean exactly? does it make the phone fly?Dear Nimei,
About Flight modus, to be more exact:
Flight mode blocks some functions from the GMS that could be dangerous because of bands / signals (calling signals). These functions could be e.g. the call function, Bluetooth of Internet connection. Other functions as MP3, playing games, etc. are still possible. In this way specific functions can be used on places where the use of GMS (radio contact)is not allowed, such as a hospital or an airplane.
So it ALSO involves the Internet or FM radio, everything that is brought to via GSM bands / signals.
I owen the HTC Diamond now for over 2 months. It is a nice small palstice phoen which get hot after using it for about 5 minutes or so. It is also not easy to use the touch screen since it is too small. and if try to view the office applications then too small to read. It's battery life not good too. I saw the Samsung Omnia yesterday and it is look like IPHONe with more application capabilites. it looks great and easy to use the touch screen on it with it's size. I will trad my HTC Diamond with Samsung today.
numei, 03 Aug 2008my english is bad but what does flight mode mean exactly? does it make the phone fly?Oh my, that question of yours is surely "surprising" *wink. Flight mode does NOT cause the phone to fly (remember this is a phone not a plane) but it will "switch off" its ability to call or sms. However, the phone would still stay on so you can still listen to music, browse your pictures and stuff, anything your phone can do beside making calls or sms.
mushienubz, 01 Aug 2008Hey!! I have the 16GB Omnia...but When I saw gsmarena's review..they talked about the BizCard ... moreI am also very much interested to know how I can operate the BIZ CARD READER. Anybody knows please advise
I have used this phone for 2 days.
The optical mouse allows for one handed operation.
The picture and video output are great for a mobile. The camera is fast and extremely easy to use.
The finish on this phone is excellent.
I am one greatful little prosumer.
Worth waiting for or buying.
5 Hooves Up.
It stays in the sty.
J, 03 Aug 2008erm.. may i knoe whether this phone supports video call or not? Of course.
numei, 03 Aug 2008my english is bad but what does flight mode mean exactly? does it make the phone fly?Flight mode means - you can use in the phone every thing, but you can not call. GSM mode is torn off.
