The Omnia screen is capacitive (iphone) or wave detections (diamond) touch screen? Anyone know?
Maybe it's a good idea to post the link immediately next time;)
check this link. Nice and honest comparison between the Omnia and the iPhone. It's Spanish (I guess;-)), but still understandable if u put some effort into it.
Meesh, 16 Jul 2008just incase you missed it this is from gsm arenas htc vs omnia review Update (July 04): We r... moreSince Americas AT&T 3g network is 800/1950 that means that the Omnia will support Americas 3g. This is great news.
Just got the phone and am very happy w it. But anyone knows how to get the T9 (word prompt) working? cos its not working for my sms even after i set it and turned it ON unber "Word Completion". very frustrating w/o T9. thanks!
I got this phone on 1st July'08.This is a great phone should buy. But can someone tell me how to set up the GPS programme for this phone? The spec. show there is a Built-in GPS receiver, but when I log in the Road map it will activate the "GPRS" to search not "GPS'?? Pls help thank u.

Update (July 04): We received word from Samsung that currently the Samsung i900 Omnia only has 2100MHz HSDPA support, which is mainly used in Europe/Asia. But since there are future plans for entering the American market, there will be a second (American-band) version of the handset, which will have 850/1900MHz HSDPA support. How's that as a 4th of July news for our fellow Americans - it seems they will have to wait just a bit longer before getting a truly 3G-enabled Omnia.

N95 has a lot of features but just look at that ugly brick. No good looks. Slider does not have a good feel. This Omnia is so beautiful looking with all the good features.
the n 95 with symbian os as bin doing all that for 3 years peoples only see the iphone and omnia but the n 95 is the one that has bin copied
this is a great handset a big rival to the new iphone 3g, i think they are both some of the best phones on the market.
Oh my word?, the final product speaks for itself, still there wisdom in leaving out a QWERTY keyboard Like the F700, lets hope the Software support is there too! does anyone have a clue when Skyfire is due, for public download?
i did test the Diamond,Iphone 3G and Omnia, in fact i use the omnia and the iphone now and have a hard time deciding witch will be my favorite,the Diamond for me was nice looking but so slow, i did'nt like it, the Omnia is very nice,elegant look ,fast, and very responsive , the touchscreen is perfect, i will use the omnia untill the iphone gets jailbreak so i can install more of my favorite program
hello all! need a lil help here.
does anyone knw if this phone omnia has a message counter?
it would really help if someone or anyone could quickly reply to this :d
Someone has said that Omnia's touch response time sucks. Can't samsung solve this problem???
can i hear fm radio through speakers in this omnia phone?
and when this will be available in india/
I'm curious as to anyone who has actually roadtested these puppies. Between Omnia, Diamond and Iphone3g, which has the better user experience? I'm not referring to specs as Iphone obviously loses out. I'm referring to which one leaves a good first impression on the ease and intuitiveness of use. Perhaps anyone from Singapore or other place which roadshowed these could lend us a hand? :)
mark, 15 Jul 2008hello gord, did u try using the mouse to navigate, how does this work. what about the small to... moreWell, you can use it, but imagine a very small laptop touch pad - you are constantly rubbing it and you get thumb sore :] It's perhaps more accurate, but also much slower. Also you can use it as virtual 4-way pad, but the awkwardness using still present.
I have stylus, and there's no problem navigating phone with it, but I'm not a business man and have no pockets for it (as perhaps you've already know omnia hasn't got a slot for it). The pant's pockets are out of question as it's dangerous to carry sharp object near you precious belongings ;].
But still don't get me wrong - omnia is not a bad phone, it has great features that work really well :] But for me it's a disappointment as I was expecting pimped up f480.
