Well, I'm a bit disappointed with Omnia's touchscreen abilities. A few weeks ago I've tested f480, though there were some cons but still, I've just loved it - It was so responsive and user friendly. But it isn't happening with Omnia. I get the impression that the touch screen is inferior to f480's (though I must say, I'm testing beta version). First of all it's not so responsive as you like to be - it's not that bad, but also not that great as in f480. And there's so little time were can you use just your thumb, because 90% of interface is standard for WM6.1. And if program is thumb friendly you would always come across some buttons that can be pressed only with stylus (especially with drop down menus).
Though there's virtual QWERTY keyboard with not so small icons, i find pressing it a bit of target, because there is no vibrating feedback (yes, it's on, it works on some buttons, but somehow Samsung forgot to implement it fully).

oliver, 14 Jul 2008To all the lucky omnia users i have 1 question . How important is the stylus to this phone ? ... morethe samsung bits of it can be used with a thumb but inevitably you will need to move to the underlying windows parts eg settings and there, you will need either a stylus or fingernail or pen. this is a conseqence of windows having so many options for configuring. come to think of it, if this phone runs on symbian, it would be so much more thumbable.

Yes the omnia features software with turn by turn navigation.
And you can also theme the omnia with a iphone theme, since it uses windows mobile.
Just a couple of questions:
1. Does the Omnia's built-in GPS feature offer turn-by-turn navigation? And if so, are directions produced audibly on the loud speaker or only onscreen?
2. The standard interface doesn't look particularly attractive. Can the theme/skin of the UI be changed (e.g. to an interface resembling the iPhone)?
Good looks but after half an hour, the vibration mode did not work and Samsung Singapore refused to replace one for one.
Something bad about Samsung Singapore.How can they bring in one that vibration mode does not work. Waited 2 weeks for the repair.
dis fone is a brick.... id rather carry my 11 inch laptop around lmao... when i put this against my normal one i was like dang this is bigger then my hand...
