The Samsung i900 Omnia is one of those touchscreen phones that one must try, as it has a good hardware and a large nice screen, and it is also able to compete with iPhone devices. The phone also comes with Windows Mobile.

Samsung i900 Omnia’s main advantages: landscape mode and landscape QWERTY; optically-enhanced action button; accelerometers; a very good 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, auto-focus and face detection; also a secondary cam for video calls; GPS; the large and sensitive screen.

Samsung i900 Omnia’s main disadvantages: Windows Mobile may be a little inaccessible for some users; reception problems in some areas; it has no built-in stylus sheath; the volume rocker is placed exactly near the camera button; proprietary headphone jack.

All in all, Samsung i900 Omnia is a nice and good casual device, made for the real world; some might even consider it perfect and hot. 😉
