Samsung Omnia 2 Hands-on

September 18th, 2009

Here’s the Omnia 2. It’s a HSPA, WinMo 6.5 powered phone with a 800Mhz processor, 16GB of built in RAM. There’s a 5 megapixel camera on the back, Samsung’s TouchWiz 2.0 UI and the most amazing 3.7 WVGA AMOLED display.

To be honest during the video I wasn’t paying very close attention because I was drooling all over the AMOLED display. It’s going to be hard to look at my non OLED display phones after this and not feel a little disappointed.

Besides the AMOLED display I was pretty impressed with TouchWiz 2.0. Samsung’s done a pretty impressive job customizing WinMo. I’m not quite as pleased that the navpad is replaced with this cube button. I’m sure it’s cool after first but I’m also sure everyone will find it kind of pointless. The lack of a stylus slow is also a disappointment.

The 800Mhz processor’s speed is very noticeable, particularly when compared with the Omnia i910′s (the previous one with a 400×240 display) 612Mhz processor.

Anyways it’s been a while since I’ve been this impressed with a WinMo device. I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these again.

    What do you mean ” It’s a HSPA”? HSPA stands for High Speed Packet Access. What I understand that it is basically 3G network, which is for data and internet access. So this phone still can not work with Telus or Bell network unless Samsung releases a CDMA version of this phone for them. Is that right? Thank you

    Samsung Omnia is good but I like most because it has so many great key features and an attractive look.
