Happiest person right now! Bought OMNIA 2 days ago and it is just perfect. Battery life is great. Use agismap for about 1.5hrs, talk on the phone, surf wifi for about 1/2 hr, check email, appointments and guess what.....? Battery life remains 75%. No joke. I dun think HTC Diamond can have such performance. Singapore
oh mannnn, 22 Jul 2008hooooray! an other iphone-clone,,, you may think of apple what you like, however all competito... moreHmm, you don't think there was a device before the iPhone that had a similar look? Look around and you'll and you'll find plenty. yes, they made it slimer and sleeker but it wasn't some earth shattering look.
Also, how much of the iPhone's functionality already existed in the market? The iPhone basically took a large part of capabilities that already existed and improved on them. Name some true features that are 100% unique to the iPhone and nothing close was already being used. I'll guarantee you just about all of them were available and used on other phones prior to the iPhone. There are some but very, very few.
It took a year to get 3G...not very
Don't get me wrong, I think it's a great device and will push for more competition among PDA designers...which will only benefit consumers!! Heck I've got one and I've got a diamond so I've seen both sides and done plenty of fact finding.
Either way, it's an individual preference so enjoy what you choose:)
hooooray! an other iphone-clone,,, you may think of apple what you like, however all competitors are just doing bad copies of the iphone - this one is among the best (copies)...
Its been a month I had been using Omnia. What more can I say? Everything is perfect & simple.
Basing on singapore's price, It should be around USD770 to USD800 for the 16GB Omnia
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2008looks like SE isnt the only company to sell over priced phones huh??.. :)Not overpriced. Only USD$800 for 16Gb, and USD$580 for 8Gb in the first sale. Now price are USD$650 for 16Gb.
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2008it is 1300 USD in the US!!!!! Samsung is out of its mind! I would estimate a 550-600 USD... moreI think you forgetting, or don't want to know that the us of a is not that important anymore! The us dollar is quit cheep nowadays. But yes, us$ 1300 is a lot of money. I would expect it to be in the range of us$ 900 - 1000.
I love the phone, i want to get it, i could buy it. But one thing is... Why is this phone over $950.00 cnd dollars is it all that as they say it is??????
it is 1300 USD in the US!!!!!
Samsung is out of its mind!
I would estimate a 550-600 USD as a reasonable price.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I think it's about Rp 7jt. It's about $1050 in singapore. I've got a hands-on experience on this baby. It's very juicy. It has everything you want but real buttons (but the screen keyboard/keypad is very handy). I agree with GSMarena though. HTC Diamond's TouchFLO 3D is better than Omnia's TouchWiz, visually and virtually.

I'm looking at getting the I900 and was wondering if it was possible to get and use hand writing recognition software so that it was easier to write messages and to word in word prosesing software like 'word' any thoughts.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970hi there
i'd prefer omnia over diamond because of the much bigger screen. the diamond screen isn't really userfriendly for touch. i'd prefer omnia over iphone because of the camera. much better camera with more settings.
i'd definitely go for omnia.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Depends really what you want, but all reviews and the majority of opinion clearly favours the Omnia. I have found Samsung to be very good.
I don't understand why they don't release in my country (Thailand) they used to claim that they will launch in SEA in the week after Singapore, this been more than a month already.
These people ate too much Kimji.
