A device to consider (Video)

from Mobile Syrup

We liked how light the OMNIA is, only 123 grams and felt good in the hand. The resolution of the screen is impressive, and the quality of pictures is clearly evident as it has a stellar 5 megapixel camera.

The video capabilities are also good with the sound quality being decent. One thing we did notice is that when we zoomed in during taking a video a “clacking” noise occured that interrupted the sound....

A CDMA version of the original i900

from MobileBurn

In general we like the updates and added features, making the i910 Omnia for Verizon even better than the original - a device we liked very much. It weighs 118.2g (4.2oz) and measures up at 112mm x 61mm x 13mm (4.4" x 2.4" x .5") in size. Samsung claims that the i910 Omnia's battery is capable of over 5.5 hours of talk time or about 19 days of standby time.

I bought this phone used to activate on the Page Plus service. The phone is fine but so many reviews miss the point by complaining about verizon charges. The phone works great on Page Plus. $40 per month unlimited talk and text but only 20mb of data (very little). But with wifi net access becomes useful in some situations at least. As for the phone...I don't know what Samsung was thinking with the tethered stylus idea. dumb, dumb, dumb. I put a screen protector on and use whatever's handy and not too sharp like a dull pencil, key or whatever. Many functions can be used via finger but not all of them easily. It helps a lot to install spb shell but that's another $30. The tech savvy can flash the rom to upgrade to 6.5 and other possibilities. The stylus, and win mobile 6.1 are all that drag this phone down to 3 stars but they're surmountable issues. Don't let the idiots complaining about verizon costs sway you on the Omnia's ratings. Less

Ok, out of the box this phone isn't all that great, but I didn't have any battery life problems then either. I got the Omnia mailed to me, I got it on the day it was released. I get around 50 emails a day, 2-3 calendar reminders a day, it syncs with my exchange server at work. I also surf the internet a little here and there. I only charge the omnia every other night. I did that before I upgraded to 6.5, or what now they are calling 6.5.1... I have unlocked GPS, but its kind of weak. You probably void your warranty, though I had the phone replaced one because I fell into the lake with it. It had 6.5 they didn't say anything. I run SPB Mobile shell 3, default installation with my own background, and icon setup. I love this phone! Cons: I wish it had a bigger screen, I'm not carrying that stylus and the touch keyboards are too small on this screen. Bluetooth does drain the battery when using a2dp. But all phones drain quicker... The proprietary connector. You have to use a splitter in the car when charging and playing the output to the input on my stereo. It's not loud enough on my stereo. If I switch from aux to fm on my stereo, the fm is much, much louder. I have to max the stereo for this phone. Also the connector is on the side of the phone, and has a flip wiggle cover much like cheap phones. So while this phone has its weaknesses, I've yet to see a better verizon phone. Less

I bought the omnia to replace an old smartphone and I really like the phone. It's very slim but sturdy in the hand. I thought the widget were cute but after a few months I got the SPB shell now I like the phone a lot better. I did have lots of trouble getting the shell on and I read that others also had trouble. I wish the screen was bigger but the new version is going to have a larger screen. I thought I would miss a stylus and a keyboard but not really. You don't need the stylus with omnia's nifty mouse but typing is kind of hard. It seems to work better in portrait than landscape which I can't understand. I can't use two hands in landscape and I have to use my fingertip in portrait. I think the new bigger screen will help that too, I hope. I am getting pretty good battery life but you have to charge it everyday. The sun affects it a lot and I really hate that. You can't see the screen at all.Also wish they would stop putting the media card slot under the battery. It should be on the outside of the phone. Less

I really wanted a new phone. The iPhone sounded like a great idea, except for the fact that Cingular service is terrible on my school campus. So I stuck to Verizon and got the Omnia. I've had this phone for a month now and am completely in love with it. The phone is amazing; but it is a Windows Mobile phone so it comes with the pros/cons of Windows Mobile. Here are somethings you might find useful that other reviews may/may not cover. CONS: 1) User interface: It is hard not to compare phones completely touchscreen and shaped like iPhones to the iPhone. Compartively, the Windows Mobile interface is terrible. Basically, the WinMo interface was designed 10 years ago to be used with a stylus and not a finger (tiny buttons, little click areas). This phone on the other hand is intended to be used with a finger. Even the stylus that comes with the phone doesn't stay in the phone, unlike other WinMo devices. Instead, if you want to carry the stylus around, you'll have to leave it dangling from the side of the phone. While Samsung does try to replace a number of screens (such as the dial pad and keyboard) with more finger friendly versions, the WinMo interface does show from time to time unless you follow... ...My recommendation to get SPB Mobile Shell and don't even bother carrying the stylus around. A number of the high reviews on amazon have referred to this software. SPB mobile shell is an awesome finger friendly interface that once you install, you never have to interact with the WinMo ugliness. I would argue that SPB's interface is better than the iPhone since SPB actually needs to sell its software based on the interface alone and does consumer surveys from time to time on how to improve the interface. SPB's interface also isn't just skin deep (unlike say HTC's flo), it has a replacement for nearly every WinMo screen you'd want to interact with. You can download a demo of SPB mobile shell 3 from the SPB software house website. (Sorry to take up a whole para on software that's not part of the phone, but it was this software that I think let me really use this phone to its full potential) 2) End programs: WinMo has this tendency to leave programs running in the background. While this is great at times you want to multitask (eg. copy text from a browser/email to word), it is not so useful other times. I've basically gotten around this by setting one of the side buttons to "task switcher" so I can close whichever programs whenever I want to. 3) No "one app store". Unlike the iPhone, I haven't found a single great app store that has all the good apps for WinMo phones. This doesn't mean that great apps aren't out there, just that it takes longer to find them. Google "Omniahub" for a site that has a large list of fantastic apps for free. PROS: Now that we have that out of the way, lets get to the pros: 1) Preloaded software: is awesome. There's a) A "card reader". Take a picture of someone's business card, and it imports the details into your contacts. Works everytime! b) Office mobile. Read/edit Word/Powerpoint/Excel files. c) A great RSS reader to read your news. d) Podcast reader e) Picture viewer: Amazingly well done. f) Opera browser: This gives iPhone's Safari a run for its money. g) Verizon Visual Voicemail: You can scroll thru a list of voice mails and play ones you want to hear based on contacts, and delete/keep others. h) FM radio, Mobile IM, great media player, and video editor. 2) Hardware: is also amazing! a) The camera is 5MP with flash. And unlike most phones which don't autofocus properly (so you don't get the high resolutions feel), this phone does. Like a real camera- a half press to focus, camera beeps, followed by a full press of the camera button to take the picture. I've taken photos of my classroom board from a far when I was too slow in taking notes, and I can zoom in later and see the text crystal clear. b) Touchscreen. The touch screen is great and very responsive. (Don't blame WinMo's sluggishness here; take my word, get the demo of SPB mobile shell I mentioned above, and you'll see!) It does require a firmer press than the iPhone, since the touchscreen is resistive on the Omnia and capacitive on the iPhone, but the resistive screen allows for more precise touches. c) Overall this phone is sleek, light and sexy. d) Battery life: Ok so this is definitely not amazing. I do charge my phone every night. But it makes it fine during the day. If you surf the web/use bluetooth a lot (moderate use if fine), you may find yourself having to charge more often. I turned off auto-push down on my email (where an email is "pushed down" to your phone as soon as your mail server gets it), and instead set it to check for mail every 15 minutes, and this seemed to significantly improve battery life. e) Has wifi and bluetooth. Bluetooth is A2DP so you can listen to stereo headphones! For those who really want a comparison with the iPhone iPhone wins on - User interface UNLESS you get additional software like SPB mobile shell - One app store with lots of apps Omnia wins on - Camera - Preloaded software - Ability to multitask, although this may lead to occasions where you'll have to run task manager or task switcher to end programs. Basically, if you're looking for a new phone, don't want iPhone/AT&T get the Omnia + the SPB mobile shell software (to replace the un-fingerfriendly WinMo interface), and you're golden. I'm giving this phone 4 stars since the default WinMo interface is terrible. If this phone came with SPB mobile shell 3 installed (so I didn't have to pay extra), it would easily get a 5 from me.

The Omnia does have a lot of nice features and is a slick phone, but there are several problems that will annoy any user to no end. First, the calibration often comes undone, causing your finger/stylus presses to be way, way off. I've had to re-calibrate weekly (at least) and even then it is still way off at times. For example, I've had to press 2 letters right of my intended letter on many texts. That's the worst! Second, the hanging stylus is a real problem. It just dangles there, begging to be lost or caught up in something. It's a miracle I haven't lost mine yet. Finally, and worst of all, the memory is screwed up. Do a quick internet search on Samsung Omnia "memeory critically low" and you'll see. I have ZERO applications/data installed since getting the phone and yet I get a crippling error message all of the time. I try to clear it, and it just keeps coming up again and again. I've tried to delete everything I can from the file folders, but it just keeps happening. So, unless you want a buggy, serious headache of a phone, skip the Omnia. Less

Unlike the many previous reviewers that rave about this phone after using it for a few days or weeks, I'll share my thoughts based on several months of use. I travel throughout the US and Puerto Rico for business. I use the Omnia to monitor three email accounts, as a storage device for data that I regularly use, and tether it to my laptop as a modem when regular internet access is not available. I travel to some austere locations as well as some major cities. I am extremely dissatisfied with the Omnia. It has yet to function as advertised -- and I'm on my third Omnia from Verizon. I've logged close to 20 hours with Verizon customer service trying to get this phone to do what it is supposed to do. It still doesn't work consistently. If you plan on using the phone to tether as a modem, I recommend you find another phone. I have had nothing but trouble shifting between phone use and modem use. Verizon's solution -- remove the battery to perform a soft reset every time you want to use the phone as a modem. Am I the only person that thinks this "solution" is a bit ridiculous? Yes, the battery life stinks. Even with limited use, the lack of battery power is a major annoyance. Again, weak batteries on all three phones Verizon has sent me. I concur with other reviews that said the signal strength is weak. It is significantly weaker than my previous Motorola and slightly weaker than my previous Blackberry. I've dropped more calls off the Omnia in a few months than I had dropped with my Motorola and Blackberry combined over a three year period. The stylus is a pain but I unfortunately must use it and leave it dangling from the stylus loop. My fingers are too large to properly hit items on the touch screen. Reading the touch screen while outside in the day time is virtually impossible. I've found that the phone works reasonably well in Verizon areas with digital coverage. Performance falls off significantly once on the extended network compared to my previous Motorola and Blackberry. One positive -- Verizon's tech support has been reasonably responsive. Most of the agents I have spoken with have been knowledgeable on the Omnia -- a few have even been stellar (wish I could reach the same stellar Omnia expert each time I've called in but Verizon doesn't allow that). Overall, even if Verizon was giving this phone away, I wouldn't recommend it for users like me. If you live in a Verizon digital service area and don't leave that area much, if you don't tether, and you don't need to sync the device with your computer and email, then a free Omnia probably isn't all that bad. Good luck to anyone that wishes to take a chance on the Omnia. Less

You will be making a mistake which you will come to regret if you buy this cell phone. Battery life is extremely limited - with very light use (less than 30 minutes a day) the battery needs charged twice a day. In regular and shaded outdoors daylight or overcast, the the screen is unable to be read at all so you are not able to tell who is calling or sending emails or text messages and unable to read the latter; you can only do so under florescent or incandescent lighting. The same is true of its camera function which renders the camera essentially useless outdoors. I was told by unhelpful verizon personnel that all this is normal. The touch screen is very very slow, sluggish and unresponsive. The "8 or 16 GB" memory refers not to built-in memory but only to optional micro-SDCH memory cards; the built in storage memory of the Omnia is only a paltry 32MB - extremely insufficient for a smart phone. On the plus side the Omnia is lightweight and petite enough to fit in a shirt pocket; the sound quality and volume is just about the best I have ever had in the five separate cell phones I have had, all from different manufacturers. For business users, such as I am, I simply cannot recommend this cell phone - you will be making a huge mistake which you will come to rue and regret very shortly after buying it. For business users I would suggest either the Blackberry Bold or the Apple iPhone 3GS. Unfortunately, I am now stuck with my wretched Omnia for the next two years due to intransigent, unsympathetic and uncooperative Verizon policy and personnel. If you buy this phone be prepared for many wasted hours going back and forth to a Verizon store to remedy the phone's problems only to be told (which I still find hard to believe) that all your Omnia problems aren't problems at all but are all part of the phone's normal functioning ("The horror, the horror") Less

The Samsung Omnia seems to be the best of what VZW offers - I tried them all. After 6 mos of actually using it I have come to terms with the fact that it will always be a frustrating phone. I am 35, an engineer, and I have been in the computer business my entire professional life. I can't tinker this thing into submission. The battery life is so dismal. I have a charger at work, home, and in my car and it still dies regularly. If it's not plugged in, I'm in trouble. The keyboard is very difficult, it's very sluggish, it's bloated with loads of useless software, and the phone reception is less than most other devices. The WI-Fi stopped working and VZW told me to back-up and hard reset. The Active Sync software that came with it does not support backup on the version of windows the Omnia is running. I figured out an alternate way to back it up - did the reset - and now it is permanently stuck on the screen alignment page and I have spend another day without a phone as I try to get it replaced. If Samsung took out half of the "features" it may be good device. On the carrier side.....VZW is expensive and they lock-up the GPS. They have good coverage, but with marginal phone options. I do not recommend this phone to anyone planning to use it for critical business - it's consumer grade at best. Less

the VZ widgets are terrible, waiting for a ROM update that will probably never come. Bluetooth is temperamental, sometimes it works, most of the time it doesn't keep profile settings and you have to delete and re-pair. The phone gets stuck in align screen during calibration, which you constantly have to redo. The UI is not finger friendly. Battery life does not last as advertised. Hoping LiMO will make an OS for the phone & VZ offers option. Stylus Should have been integrated into phone rather than dangle off like a Tokyo schoolgirls phone. Shozu cannot be removed since it is part of the ROM, GPS locked, RAM is minimal, if listening to mp3s and texting, it takes forever for the OS to react. WinMo sucks. Verizon Customer Support is terrible, and if you go to Samsung it is even worse. Touchplayer is horribly ridden with bugs. Would have been better with a slide keyboard, linux, and headphone jack. Wish G1 was VZ instead of cruddy TMobile. Less
