Samsung Omina II Review
The Samsung Omnia II is a striking mobile device for the Verizon network by Samsung. Running Windows Mobile 6.5 at its core. This 3.7 AMLOED resistive touch screen smartphone comes packed with a 5 megapixel camera with flash, built in wifi , DLNA support, 8GB internal memory ( Expandable with microSD), aGPS.
The Samsung Omina II is a well designed device with smooth and rounded edges.TH AMOLED screen is absolute gorgeous to look at and easy on the eyes, the resistive touchscreen is very responsive and possibly one of the best resistive touchscreens on the market. Omina II feels light in the hands with a soft comfortable grip. All around the Omina II is a sold and sleek piece of hardware.
CAMERA & Pictures
As we have since with the Samsung Intrepid, the Omina II has a simple but effective camera software that is easy to use. With various photo options. Also the video recording capabilities of the phone do a decent job and records at 720/480. You can find a sample recording within the full video review.
Notable mention( Bing Apps Beta)
As we know most smartphone either have GPS or some sort of map and navigation with it. A cool app, which can be downloaded of the Windows marketplace is the Bing Beta app. Which gives you full turn-by turn GPS functionality while combing the full benefits of Bing search into the application. Here is a detailed look at the app running on the Samsung Omina II.
The Smasung Omina II is a very solid smartphone, though the OS feels a little sluggish( slight negative). It performs very well. What I do like about the device is how it feels less like a windows mobile phone and more like a smartphone. Samsung did an excellent job here in ensuring the device ran and felt smooth. With no hiccups or issue during our testing. The software interface felt smooth, the response of the resistive touchscreen to finger use was excellent and the AMOLED screen is the icing on the cake that allows for easier viewing. In all the Omina II is a solid smartphone and a great windows mobile 6.5 phone.
