Gear65 #33 - Samsung Omnia II (HD Video)

This highly demanded review is finally up! The Samsung Omnia II, Samsung’s newest Windows Mobile device, is a lot more promising that the original Omnia when it first came out with it’s brand new TouchWiz 2 UI that features many things you find in the HTC TouchFlo 3D as well. But having a practical UI is not enough, it needs to be able to run it well. Can the Omnia II do that? We’ll find out today.

  • Hey, Noticed the screen quite hard to press. Many times it doesn’t respond to your sliding action.

    Daniel, you give great reviews, but lay off the crack. Just kidding, we southern US folks are are a little slower, but I caught 80% of your Omnia II review.

    Two questions:
    1. There has been controversy about the AMOLED screen in sunlight, any truth to it being more faded that TFT?

    2. Do you know if a WM 6.5 upgrade will activate the 16m color support or is this disabled for power consumption reasons anyway??

    Hi Daniel, I’d like to know if omnia II / windows 6.5 have option to show the agenda in main screen. Do you know if it is possible ? Im trying to search something explaing about it but no answers yet.
    Probably you are asking for yourself why someone is asking questions about this smartphone, once that it was released at Aug/09.. It’s simple and in the same time disgusting, just now this smartphone is sold in Brazil. Thanks for your help.
