Samsung Omnia is a nightmare smartphone.

This phone was marketed by Verizon as the "iPhone killer". I got it for free from Verizon with free shipping after waiting about 4 months to renew my contract. They kept sending me emails dropping the price until they sent it to me for free.

It runs on Windows and frequently freezes. The touch screen is so unpredictable. It never picks up the link that you want, it's always the link above or below or to the side of the link you actually want. This screen is also a nightmare to try to type on. Don't bother to try to text on it. It pulls up crazy words and misspellings while you type. There is also limits on the number of links you can open in an unspecified time period.

The camera is a decent 5.0 megapixel and the photos are good, not great. I went to a Verizon store, asked them questions about the phone and they laughed at me. They told me they really got me with that phone. Even though I received it for free with free shipping, I still fill ripped off. Avoid this phone at all costs.

I will be upgrading to the Droid and maybe to the iPhone if (when) Verizon gets it.

DO NOT BUY INTENSITY 2!

I have had this phone since August of 2010 and I have been so frustrated with it. The battery life lasts maybe 1/4 of the time that it has with every other phone I have ever had. The soft keys in the QWERTY keyboard are difficult to use, and the t9word saves some words you use often, but not others, and the default words are not ones that are commonly used. It turns off in the middle of phone calls and sending text messages, and all around is probably the worst phone I have ever had.

Communication issues

I like/love the touch screen option. I dislike the quality of the phone, my callers have a difficult time understanding me and I have a difficult time understanding them as well. I find it very hard to hold a conversion when I have to continue to repeat myself. I will never pay that much for a phone again after this experience.

Horrible phone

THis phone is an overall nice phone... I would Recommend Looking the Phone Up and visually and physically touching it before you buy.... It is a phone that is ment for people with very small fingers and it is extreamly difficult to use

research before you buy

Make sure that when you bid on something "used" that they take a picture of the actual product that they are selling. I received my phone and it was way more scratched up than was implied, the cover where the charger plugs into the phone was missing and you could clearly see that there had been water damage. The phone itself is more difficult to use because any downloads or updates have to be done on your PC and then transferred with a data cable (was not provided) to the phone.
