Good phone! Only let down would be the flaky buttons that feel plastic, otherwise great build quality :)
Everythings good except marketplace is not eligable in Singapore......:-X

Hello i am planning to buy Samsung Omnia W though i am really very confused if i should go for this phone or maybe android is better than windows?? and the next question is it is having a expanable memory slot or not. It does not specialize as in my knowledge, would it be good??PLZ TELL ME WHICH ONE GOOD MOBILE OMNI W OR LUMIA 710

santu, 09 May 2012Bro don't go for Samsung omnia(WP)..it is a worst phone...its better to go for android mob..at... moreu wrong...u can download BT file transfr and ineternet like a ocean....so u can get everythng with right way....but samsung is 10 step ahead from nokia.....i m us
Amongst the windows' phones available in India at the moment Samsung Omnia W is arguably the best because it comes at the price of Rs.15000 and has a super amoled screen & a front facing camera both of which are lacking in nokia devices. Lumia 800 has clear black amoled but not super amoled while nokia Lumia 710 has an lcd screen. Now Skype and tango both are available on windows phone. So, a front camera seems to be a must have. Although nokia Lumia 800 has a more beautiful polycarbonate body, a better camera and 16 gb storage, but it's priced at around Rs.23000. While nokia Lumia 710 is priced similarly to omnia w, it has a less premium feel, lacks front camera and there's no amoled screen.
I'm totally smitten by the windows phone. In terms of OS fluidity and sheer beauty comparing it to android I would say it's no contest. I beats iOS as well and by a fair margin. Windows marketplace has almost all the essential apps. I'm also using iphone 3GS and Samsung galaxy sl i9003(android). Facebook is sooo very deeply integrated into the windows phone mango OS that u would routinely not be opening the dedicated Facebook app. The minuses of windows include lack of bluetooth file transfer, non expandable memory. Android is kind of limitless, a more geeky thing much like a computer and I'm still a huge fan but to be honest windows does things more gracefully with more eye candy. Animations and transitions are irresistible. There would be things u would miss if u are coming from Android though. Specifically I would add that I use airtel India 2G connection on all three platforms. Somehow the windows phone performs best out of the three followed by ios. Wifi(2mbps) performance though does not show appreciable difference among the three. Omnia w has an advantage of having front facing camera compared to nokia windows devices. Nokia maps though could be a huge advantage if u really use maps to move around because bing maps has a poor data as far as India is concerned compared to Google maps on Apple and android. LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST THE RETAILERS IN OUR COUNTRY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT AN OS EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT THEY COULD LOAD U THE CRACK VERSIONS OF GAMES ON ANDROID AND A HUNDRED SONGS IN A JIFFY OVER ANDROID PLATFORM. SO FROM THIER STANDPOINT WINDOWS PHONE IS NOT AS MATCH FOR ANDROID. Multi brand retailers would stock what sells the most which is android. So, they will push android devices because that's what they have invested in, in terms of stocks.

gary2411, 08 May 2012if we can't transfer files via bluetooth, then how do we transfer files? :P i wonder :/sorry this service not work
I should say, fastest in terms of performance.
Drawbacks are very relating to software & support point of view.
No file transfer option available from PC to Mobile. Contacts transfer is horrible. Personalization of Ringtones & Wallpapers are horrible.
