Hey Guys... I brought this phone recently..
Its an awesome phone.. The best part of it is the OS. U will love the new look for your menu, instead of the boring menu as in android. The live times make it amazing to look. The Amoled Screen is great and there is hardly any lag in response. It uses only a single core processor to achive this. while u see a bit of lag with android phones even after using dual core processors. Since this is a single core processor the battery consumption is also low. U have facebook, twitter intergration with your messages. U can pin in any screen to your start menu. U get 25gb in the sky drive as well. Data speed is awesome. U have Adreno 205 graphic card.. very good viewing angles.. sleek design that fits ur hand wonderfully.. smooth touch..
No blutooth(Nor does iPhone has it)
U need zune to transfer files(Same as iTunes of Apple)
Camera not upto the mark..
The phone has so many good features that these disadvantages dont even count..
Verdict: 10 times better than the Android phones in the same range.
bluetooth is not working proper its not transfering the data and receving. for system also not supporting for windows home edition.
ok here's the thing....
does this phone really have a gyroscope? there is no mention of gyroscope in samsung website!!!!
second, how good is the camera? i mean stills. dont really care about video.
between xperia neo v and this phone which one do u suggest? :)
thank u :)
Amit N, 10 Jan 2012Hi Guys, I am planning to buy this phone but as reading most of the opinions I am quite confu... moreMr. Amit i m useing this ph i would say to u dont go with this ph. it is only window ph nthing special in it camera is not good bettery backup is also very very bad only 1 day with normal use. bluetooth is also not working .. we cnt transfer anything with other mobiles i personly advise u dont waste ur money
Rishunk, 16 Jan 2012Then how can we download mp3 and other stuffs?@ Rishunk , you cannot from the IE9 or any other browsers , you can download some apps which support download from some certain sites , but they are limited and don't cover popular Hindi songs download sites , so u have to download in pc and then transfer vie zune to mobile , i hope opera comes soon to WP7 and resolve this issue soon
overall it's a bad exp. limited internet browsing, Bluetooth only for dongles and headsets. no file transfer. u cannot copy mp3 files, pictures, videos directly form your pc. u have to install zune first. camera quality is very poor. totally it's a flop show.
We can download music too but we can not use it on main mp3 player.....i need angry birds Rio
[deleted post]@ jahir
You can download all the apps you want from the windows market place in your phone , you don't require any pc to do that , you cannot download mp3 songs and videos from your favorite sites which you can normally do on a android /symbian platform
Bluetooth is only for Bluetooth dongle and stereo headset , you cannot transfer photos or music from WP7 to other phones
Browsers are very limited in market place you will find some known browsers like surfcube 3d and many unknown browsers , u will not find famous browsers like opera or fire fox ,
well it fits your budget
i had samsung galaxy s plus , and after using it for 4 months and no clarity on ICS upgrade i sold it out to a friend and brought Samsung omnia w , from sulekha.com for at a best price of just 16250 only . much cheaper then Android phones with similar specification , since Galaxy S Plus costed me 21.5k , people may say it was a downgrade but i don't thinks so , phone has 1.4 GHZ processor with 512 MB Ram , along with Super Amoled , 3.7 inch screen . so now about the phone and the os that's Windows phone 7 . and my journey from a high end Android phone to a Windows phone 7
Pros of phone and os .
Dedicated camera key is a blessing , so is the 1500 Mah battery , with 3g and wifi battery lasts around 13 hours . which is much better then Galaxy S Plus which even with 1650 Mah at could last 12 hours .
Windows Phone 7 OS , just never freezes or gets stuck with more then 20 apps i had , no hanging at all which was common in android , so thumbs up here .
Skydrive is amazing and speed too is good , so is windows live you can lock or erase your data remotely if phone is lost or been robbed and Zune is much easier then itunes to use , but still needs improvement , in sections like back up option .
X-box and apps , collection is pretty good and you will find most of the android apps in windows market place .
cons and os limitations
SMS BUG : India mobile users may face a sms bug which is in WP7 , i use airtel connection and since airtel doesn't have 3G licence in my area , they use Vodafone 3G services , so airtel for 2G and Vodafone for 3G , so here comes the problem , some time WP7 refuses to send a sms or text has called , due to this , in Android i never had this problem , so my network had no idea about the problem , so after bit of research i was able to solve or over come the problem , but the bug remains and will only be a nag
No flash support in IE-9 and no opera support makes the phone big bore in terms of browsing internet in the phone and lack of alternative browsers like firefox or opera is a big headache , since i don't surf on phone much , but i miss opera hope they come soon .
No Songs / Video download , when ever you want to download mp3 songs or videos from certain sites which most of Indians don't like to pay for , its a problem every time you click on a link to download something , Zune will kick in and play it for you , so you cannot practically download any thing in your mobile , missing android over here .
Email attachments limited to pictures only and not documents attachment support is a bid down turner .
Bluetooth transfers are missing and i hope that will be sorted out in next upgrade .
Saint Bling : its pretty much useless search engine especially for Indians who are hooked to Google , why i call it a saint is just type sex or porn and you have zero results
i am seriously looking for windows phone 8 to take care of this nagging issues and come big and limitations in the current WP7 are taken care off by them
Samsung provides great cameras to its flagship devices like Galaxy S, Wave 8500 and Galaxy SII. I expected the same in case of Omnia W as well but disappointed to learn that the camera is just good, not great. I owned a Wave 8500 earlier and I must say that camera experience was one of a kind. It was a perfection. Why not Samsung did the same here?
