Samsung Omnia 7: at a glance

Cool industrial design and striking features have enabled the Samsung Omnia 7 smartphone to achieve positive reviews.

The Omnia 7 features a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, which is quite striking but not as big as that of the HTC HD7’s 4.3-inch screen.

The device also comes equipped with a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 8GB of onboard memory, a 3.5mm head phone socket, wi-fi, GPS and a 5-megapixel camera which features autofocus, flash and high-definition recording capabilities.

But, it is surprising to notice that the high end smartphone’s camera is lagging far behind the 8-megapixel photo snapper of the HTC 7 Mozart.

The Omnia 7 is based on Microsoft’s latest Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system, which helps bring updates from social networking platforms onto the screen. In addition, it brings Zune music, Bing search engine and Xbox gaming platform.

T-Mobile UK is offering the Omnia 7 for free on a £35 a month two-year contract in a deal that will bring 900 minutes, 500 texts, and unlimited mobile Internet. However, BuyMobilePhones has been spotted offering a cheaper deal for the Samsung Omnia 7. It is offering the handset for free on a £25 a month two-year contract that will bring 600 minutes, 500 texts along with 1GB data quota.
