Of the current batch of handsets available that utilise the new Windows 7 operating
system, the Samsung Omnia 7 looks best placed to come out on top of the pile thanks
to the superb screen that the phone offers.
The Omnia 7 not only looks stylish, but it is also backed up by some serious
technology to rival the very best phones currently available. At the heart of this is a
high powered processor that ensures whatever task you are performing on the phone
is done as quickly and efficiently as possible. Clocked at 1Ghz, the Snapdragon
processor is more than ample to handle the most demanding of tasks it is asked to
perform. The connectivity available on this model is equally impressive, so whether at
home or on the go, a fast and reliable internet connection can always be established.
The likes of EDGE and GPRS are present, so if the super fast 3G service is not
available, a good alternative is available. WiFi is always welcome, and this model
supports all three speeds that are currently available, resulting in the best possible
online experience. Such great options are not only perfect for web browsing, but also
ensure that the handset can utilises features such as push notifications and support of
RSS feeds. Connection is equally as impressive locally, with Bluetooth offering a
wealth of wireless possibilities, and of course the essential micro USB allowing easy
transfer of all of your important files to and from your PC.
The Samsung Omnia 7 is undoubtedly a great looking phone. The sleek lines and
large screen that dominate the fascia contribute to this appeal, as does the matte finish
aluminium that makes up the bulk of the rear of the phone. This not only adds style
appeal but also makes the phone feel very high end. A drawback to large screen size is
that the overall size of the phone is inevitably larger. At 122.4 x 64.2 x 11mm this is
the case here, however upon handling the model it does not feel to large or clumsy.
The large screen uses the very latest Super AMOLED screen technology to give the
user crystal clear picture and text quality. At 480 x 800, the resolution is high, perfect
for the high contrast interface that Windows 7 offers. The screen performs well in
sunlight thanks to the great technology on offer, and with a huge 16 million colours
able to be displayed, pictures appear vivid with a depth not normally associated with
