JITHIN, 09 Mar 2012me also only 7 hrs on heavy usage in 3g and wifi.
and about 14 hrs with normal use in 2g.
an... morei guess i must be the only guy here not complaining about this phones battery life !!!
with very little phone calls,few annoyin service provider incoming SMSs,few apps downloads & occasional SNS surfing...
today is the 4th day(almost finshed) since i have last charged my device & its still showing 20% left !!! :D
i know...its quite unbelievable...i am myself surprised too !!!
with similar mentioned usage on my Galaxy s-II i used to get only 1-1.5 days of battery backup...this device is amzing !!! :)
[ ps - all above is with battery saver mode on,still...its amzing rite !!! ;) ]
rahul, 08 Mar 2012is there really a sms bug in omnia w....or it's just a rumour....????yes its a big prob in omnia.sms defect is there
i think we can send multiple messages ..one of my frnd have lumia and he is able to send (both have same platform Mango)..so you want to say that this is particular with Omnia ..can some one plz check on this.
ishraj, 09 Mar 2012i think in 2G you can send to multiple contact by creating groupCreating contact group every time is not a good option.
Even the most basic phones have this feature..
Atleast with mango microsoft should have addressed this.
Now we have to wait for tango update....Hopefully it arrives by then....
This phone has hiccups in its SMS feature which is the most widely used feature of any phone...Microsoft focused too much on facebook.
rahul, 08 Mar 2012is there really a sms bug in omnia w....or it's just a rumour....????@Rahul: Yes the sms defect is there when u turn ON the 3G, the sms will not go so you have to try 3 or 4 times to send a sms. Microsoft says these defects will be taken care in next update.
anoop, 06 Mar 2012I take this phone last week.one problem I facing is battery backup. I got only 7 hour backup.w... moreme also only 7 hrs on heavy usage in 3g and wifi.

and 30 hrs without data
Bugs/Features not supported
1) 3g Sms bug.( workaround by setting network profile to 2g only)
2) Network switch issues from 3g to 2g which leads to zero signal strength.( workaround by setting network profile to 2g only)
3) No Hindi font/ Bing india maps due to lack of India localizations for India.
4) Cannot send sms to multiple contacts.
5) No call duration facility.
6) Cannot delete individual SMS in threaded view..
7) Very poor Mp3 ringtone support.
8)No search option existing to search within internet explorer.(A workaround exists for this).
please add to this list..So that we may know whether the tango update resolves any of the above...
Also suggest any workaround or solutions.

gopalanand, 07 Mar 2012Tell me what samsung had update or going to update..??what Samsung shd update ??? our Omnia is up2date my friend.
& if u r talkin about Nokias ongoing updates then i hope u know their so called updates are actually "bug fixes"(bttery,call ending etc.) by Nokia itself & they aint 'Windows' related.
Omnia is bug free device mate :) & whenevr windows will release their update then samsung will provide us with it.

3.Talking caller-id not available.

Basics went missing, whats your opinion-any solutions pl. share...ThanQs.
Folks, I would like to give a quick review on this comparing to my previous Samsung Galaxy SL i9003.
Initially I hestiated to come out of Android as I am much used/familer to it, but the fact is the android phone does not have good smooth interface where as windows give smooth interface than iphone/android. Performance of this phone is really excellent, interface is beautiful and rapid fast while connecting to Wifi networks. When compare my previus galaxy sl, this very fast and no hanging issue even after installation several apps. Multitasking is really good and easy. Many says that in windows phone there are no much apps when compare to android phone but the actual fact is in android there are millions of apps but most of the apps are not in usable shape and most of them are crap and malware but in windows all the essential apps which are required for smartphones are there like facebook, twitter, IM+, Linkedin, outlook, google mail, moneycontrol,youtube, wikipedia, youtube, photo editors etc etc. When comparing to battery which is really good and when I keep the phone in power saver mode it lasts for one full day. Those who are looking for budget smartphones with the value for money in windows can blindly buy this samsung omnia w. This is the time for windows phones
