Using it for 3/4 days. Very frustrating experience. I bought from Singtel, Singapore. The Omnia came with no operating manual. Only a getting started brochure. That has very little details. Searching the net I found their manual. It is 72 pages, but there is not a single picture or diagram and whatever you want to find as a beginner, it is not there. In various reviews on the net, all have praised the phone but I wonder, how they found out how to use the set. For a start, where do you keep the stylus, I spent 10 minutes look through the phone, then found the place to keep it on the casing. I do not know how to start the speaker phone, do audio recording use the widgets properly. There are absolutely no instructions. Even though the phone maybe good. Samsung should produce step-by-step manual (with diagrams) to use all the features. Otherwise it is really a shame and an average user will never be able to use these features!
so this isn't tri-band hsdpa? there are 2 different versions of the phone with different hsdpa bands?
Vlad, 05 Jul 2008Hi.i have a one simple question.can i navigate using this phone without being connected to cel... moreyes, this is not like nokia that charge you for turn by turn directions, this phone have a gps and you can use any software whit the gps free, just if you use the "A" of the a-gps you will get charget
I read that this gadget does not have stylus compartment. Is it true? It's strange if true.
I believe this is the most wanted gadget that beats the other competitor. Good work to Samsung.
I really want this phone. i just saw a video from this phone and it looks very good.
i just wanted to know the release date and price here in Portugal.
Hi.i have a one simple question.can i navigate using this phone without being connected to cellular network ?(like sirf III ) this is very important to me.
thank you very much
i just talked to sntraders and they told me they not gettin it til end of july so i think samsung has a tight leash on omnia and is waiting for the numbers on the iphone and diamond to come through which is stupid because they can flood the market with omnia while the hype is so high
Lee, 03 Jul 2008I am hoping to buy the Omnia when it arrives in the UK - however I am a little worried about t... moreHi. I just traded my N95-1 for this.
Since I don't watch videos and all that on my phones, I can't gauge about video playback quality. But in terms of general display, I really don't see much of a difference, despite the N95 having a 16m display.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970i don't think so that it will b out on next week,well what i know 900i will b out on the 3rd week of july bcouse iphone is coming on next week so Samsung will not lunch 900i within the same week so u will have to wait for another week.
Hi Jason. The device uses Palm alike Graffiti input stroke. I only tried in English. Not sure if it supports other languages...definitely, not chinese.
But note, it can read Chinese.
As for the button, it can be in potrait or landscape. Not sure how big is the iphone but I find Omnia is ok.
They have a few other type of keyboard input too.
I have a question for someone who has a Samsung i900 all ready: I know it has handwriting recognition, that's what I prefer. But when I will use the keyboard will the letter you touch get bigger as in the iPhone? Aslo, will handwriting recognition work in other languages?
Many thanks indeed for you answers in advance.
after the gsm arena review i decided to buy i900 monia. Most of this features better than the diamond except music player. If u want the diamond's music player download it from www.wm6software.net
Ha now it say's out of stock, be sure to check often, they get stock often
Yeah far better than N96 but VGA recording only with 15 fps!?! I was very disappointed when i read this in the review. Hope this will be fixed in the retail units. The only other drawback is the screen resolution- it sucks! It could have been the perfect phone...
