Samsung Omnia

Omina
The Samsung Omina has been term the Apple iPhone killer. It runs on the popular Windows Mobile 6.1 OS. The large 3.2″ WQVGA TFT LCD allows you to view your pictures and videos on a large screen.

The generous 16GB flash allows me to store all my favourite pictures, videos and music on the Omina. There is a lot of applications that is available for use on the Samsung omina. The most important is the Chinese CE Star for me as it allow me to write and read chinese characters.

I love the camera with face detection and smile detection. The 5MP camera allowed me to take clear and sharp pictures. The face detection is good as it allowed me to focus on human face instead of the background. The best will be the smiling detection, it automatically capture when my children smile at the camera. It is great for shooting children photos.

The touch screen is very responsive and keying in of characters is easy. You just need to lightly touch the screen to key in the characters or navigate the menu.
