The Samsung Omnia has a strong on-line following due to the great availability of software available for the phone. Knowing others who have this phone, I knew the level of customization that I could do to it. I have been able to modify the phone, via software, to exactly match my needs. There are newer phone with stronger hardware feature sets, but few allow for the flexibility to customize quite like the Samsung Omnia. Various on-line forums have in-depth discussions about how to customize this device, some of what is discussed does require a solid technical knowledge to implement.
For a resistive touch screen phone this is relatively more sensitive interface. Samsung produces a robust piece of hardware when it comes to the abuse of daily use. The camera is a stand out, when paired with the Samsungs camera software.
The GPS works but can take between two and 5 minutes to get satellite locks. There is no support for augmented GPS, so there is no tower triangulation for locating, prior to satellite lock. Much of the original Samsung software, other than the camera's, leaves something to be desired. Samsung uses propitiatory power, and accessory connectors on this phone. Prior to changing much of the software load on this phone, I would at best call this an average device.
This is a Windows Mobile device running 6.1 from the factory. Windows Mobile 6.1 leaves much to be desired. The later versions of Windows Mobile, like 6.5.3 are a drastic improvement, and show Microsoft is on the right path to improving there mobile interface.
For the price, the i910 is a great phone. I like windows mobile phones because the ease of syncing them with a PC, plus it is easy to add ring tones, etc. The phone has a lot of good features, I like the widgets. I just wish you could lock them on the screen. They tend to move around. Battery life is not too hot, but the battery wasn't new. I have ordered a new battery to see if it makes a difference. I bought the phone to use with Page Plus Cellular, who is a reseller. The phone gets good reception and does everything that I need it to do.
The phone works well and has a decent battery life. It has a windows operating system though and at times freezes or runs slow....similar to my computer. Im not impressed with the applications available to the windows system either. There isnt alot of variety in the apps and there arent many for free either. This is my first smartphone so to me it is just wonderful to have email and gps in my hand. I would recommend this phone for a first time user but it def wouldnt impress veteran smartphone users.
This was the most affordable upgrade for me, not eligible for the contract upgrade date. Compared to the Droid or Iphone it may seem slower but I just wanted to access web, Facebook, online banking, Google, ebay...It performs well at all these. Awesome camera at 5.0 and nice big screen.
Cons: Texting on screen keyboard takes some getting use to if you like an actual pull out keyboard. Battery gets sucked down after a full 12-15 hour work day.
I just got another spare and make sure I plug it in my car when I can.
Overall, it functions well for my purposes, and at $150. vs a $300+ (newer phone)- price was the best feature!
This phone (the Samsung SCH i910) is a fascinating piece of tech- it works quite well in some ways and is frustrating beyond belief in others.
Pros- parts of the interface are well-designed. It is quite convenient having a computer in one's pocket for directions and web searching (and since I hate the tiny keys of many sliders, the on-screen keyboard is a nice compromise).
Cons- the capacitive touchscreen is spotty- sometimes it takes multiple presses to make it register and most games are a royal pain without some form of stylus present. Also, depending on the program, reading text from online sources can be severely unpleasant- rather than squeeze to size (ala Iphone), you tap the screen to increase or decrease. That would work fine, but it is sluggish and multiple taps will sometimes register, sometimes not, sometimes, 20 seconds too late.
Overall, it is a reasonable step into pocket computing (the M$oft mobile versions of Word and Excel work fine) but this device is no replacement for a more robust machine, pocket, laptop or desktop.
