Up for review is one of our top picks for pay as you go cell phones, or it can be used with your family phone plans. Its name alone brings an air of sophistication and elegance. At the first ever glance, Samsung Omnia SGH-I900 definitely does not disappoint. Released around the same time as rival iPhone, this was Samsung’s answer to Apple. Omnia could have had toppled the market favorite if only for its beautiful, modern looking look. But with closer inspection, this mobile phone is only inspired and patterned after the iPhone as one of the smartest cellular phones on the market.
The screen is 3.2 inches and 240×400 pixels. Its camera, perhaps, is its sharpest feature. Omnia SGH-I900 has a 5 megapixel camera. It also boasts of autofocus, face detection, and the very important flash mode. In this area, this Samsung phone definitely crushes the competition, and makes other phones look quite ordinary. The wide, high-resolution screen and very responsive touch screen definitely serve well when you go back to viewing your pictures.
This mobile phone runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional software, and PC users may find using this software quite familiar. However, Windows Mobile is not as user-friendly as iPhone’s Apple software. And the stylus might be quite a problematic feature, too. You can’t really go that far in this phone with your trusty stylus.
Other features include HDSPA 7.2 connectivity, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and USB. For storage, you may choose between the 8 gigabyte or 16 gigabyte series. Talk time and battery life is also its strong suit, lasting for as long as 390 minutes (unlike the iPhone whose battery dies so easily on you).
Over all, if you’re looking for a phone to accompany you as you stylishly strut down the street, this is the phone choice for you. It’s also a bit cheaper than its other rival touch screen phones.. In terms of features, though, especially if you’re using your phone also as an e-mail device, it may not be your best bet.
