While the Omnia 2 is a dream phone on paper in practice I was a little disappointed.

Phone Scoop

A chubster, a fatty, a tubbo... a beefy device

from Phone Scoop

Samsung's latest Windows Mobile 6.5 phone also runs the TouchWiz 2.0 user interface, meaning it skips most of Microsoft's experience and substitutes Samsung's. If you're looking for a smartphone packed with software and features galore, the Omnia II just might be for you. There are a few drawbacks to consider, however, and Phone Scoop weighs in on this weighty device.

There's no denying that the Omnia II is a chubster, a fatty, a tubbo... a beefy device. I can't for the life of me figure out why it is so large. It is a monoblock phone that is thicker than some sliding QWERTY devices o... Full review

A device with real smartphone power

from MobileBurn

When it's all added together, the Samsung i920 Omnia II for Verizon is a very good phone for those looking to move from devices like the LG enV Touch or Versa and into a device with real smartphone power. Its TouchWiz homescreen is bad, but at least you can use the good looking default Windows Mobile homescreen and still enjoy the better things about TouchWiz. I am disappointed by the performance of the phone's 800MHz CPU and resistive touchscreen (though the AMOLED part is fantastic), but I still like the phone in general. I just feel there are better and sexier phones out there for the sa... Full review

It gives you a headache to use

from PhoneArena

The Omnia II is frustrating from the second you pick it up to the moment you lay it back on your desk, defeated and distraught. There was so much potential here, so much obvious potential. Through a series of bizarre decisions and grating software design, Samsung has managed to squander it. Every. Last. Ounce.
The Omnia II's UI is essentially the same concept, adapted for Android and intended to penetrate a little deeper. There are even some striking similarities between the Omnia II's interface and that of the Omnia HD, a Symbian-based phone from a few months ago. In short, TouchWiz i... Full review

Retains the impressive AMOLED display

from PhoneArena

So does the Samsung Omnia II i920 deliver? Yes and no. In one aspect, the device is a major upgrade from the original Omnia i910, as it comes with a large AMOLED display, Windows Mobile 6.5 Pro, TouchWiz 2.0, and faster processor. But at the same time other smartphones have been released, such as the HTC Imagio, DROID ERIS, and Motorola DROID, all of which have significantly changed the landscape. Because of this, we feel the Omnia II is  a few months late on the scene and doesn’t impress the power-user as much as it would have earlier this  summer. This doesn’t take away from the fea...

A dream phone on paper

from HowardChui

While the Omnia 2 is a dream phone on paper in practice I was a little disappointed. Samsung has really gone all out customizing the Omnia 2. While I liked the customization they made the Omnia 2 and it’s 800Mhz processor feel slow. This really diminished the added value of the customizations. The screen is beautiful as long as you’re not in bright sunlight. Sound quality and RF and both top notch.

In the end the screen is nice enough that I’d recommend the Omnia 2 to some people. Also, if you’re the type of person who doesn’t care about the customizati... Full review

A massive improvement from the original Omnia

from Mobile Syrup

The Omnia II is a massive improvement from the original Omnia that Samsung launched last year. This could be that they’ve made some positive changes such as the increased screen size, put in Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional and fundamentally make a classier looking product. Not that this fact be a decision maker when you’re looking to purchase it, but the Omnia II is also the device that’s the “Official Mobile Device of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games”.

The overall dimensions of the Omnia II are 118 x 59.6 x 12.3mm and it only weighs in at 123 grams. When it comes to... Full review

GSMArena

Pleasantly designed, fluid and responsive

from GSMArena

The Samsung I8000 Omnia II is certainly a device that is hard to match, let alone beat and that much is clear with just a cursory glance at its specs. It also carries the aura of a new OS version pioneer, which in itself is enough to generate excitement. But that can hardly be a selling point as all recent HTC devices have also been promised free WinMo 6.5 updates one the things gets out.

The thing that caught our attention the most is that the handset has the performance to cash all the checks that its specs are writing for. Virtually every part of the once sluggish and boring lookin... Full review

Samsung I8000 Omnia II is the real proper sequel

from GSMArena

Gather 'round ye gadget lovers, for the tale of Samsung I8000 Omnia II. It's a tale of PocketPC wisdom and touch wizardry, of big screen and pixel aplenty, of ancestry and identity. Lend an ear to this preview as we try to figure out where this creature came from and where it's heading.

The number of high-end, touchscreen PocketPC bars is getting ever greater. Off the top of our heads, we could name at least five with WVGA screens over 3 inches and a camera of 3.15 MP or higher. If you include phones with a slide-out QWERTY then the market gets even more crowded. All of these have HSD... Full review

I had this phone for a week now and i can say it has a lot of features, it could be enjoyable but the thing that drags it down(well at least for me) Apps run slow, trying to multitask is a real pain and it has bad respond time, the accelerometer tends to rotate when it wants to not when its suppose to. The OS really seems to be its biggest down fall, this smart phone has a 800mhz CPU it shouldn't be chugging. As a media device it's one of the better devices on the market. The 3.7 AMOLED screen is really nice display for video and pictures. The web is responsive but make sure your running one program at a time. As a cell phone this phone has good coverage and the call quality is really good. This phone really light and comfortable in the hands. As a whole i cant recommend the Omnia 2, just because the price tag is way to steep, win6.5 seem way out of day when new OS like the android 2.1, Iphone and the new win mobile 7 coming this fall. They all seem to add a lot more and have smoother user interface than what win 6.5 offers. Less

I've had this phone for almost a week now and I love it. Being a windows mobile phone makes it even better. The main reason I only give this phone 4 stars is because of 2 things. 1)The headphone jack is on side instead of the top, so if you plan on using it to listen to music, you will want to get headphones with a 90 degree plug on them. 2)The Touch pro interface is not very good.I found the whole widget setup to be fairly unimpressive and the 3d cube thing is an absolute joke (you can just push the buttons at the bottom instead of spending time trying to get the cube to spin to the side that you want). Normally the interface problem would have been a deal breaker, but you are in luck. I downloaded the SPB Mobile shell replacement and installed that and it's is incredible. Not only does it make the phone much more functional, but it also makes it look incredible, is easier to edit and add/remove shortcuts, and it reduces the amount of memory needed by quite a bit once you turn off the samsung widget plus interface (under Start>settings>Display settings>Items on Today). So far everyone at work has been impressed with the phone including a big time mac fan. A couple people have even said the are considering this phone over the Droid after seeing it. Less
