Review on Samsung Omnia 7

Though it might seem like a chicken-and-egg situation, the question in our case never was which one came first: Windows Phone 7 or the Samsung I8700 Omnia 7. We know youre all adding two and two together. Our Windows Phone 7 review was based on this Samsung Omnia 7 here. You cant blame the OS for taking unfair advantage but you cant deny the fact either that a Super AMOLED screen can make anything look good.
Not that were saying that Windows Phone 7 is just anything. And of course, it just cant and wont be anything you want it to be. But thats not the whole story. Lets just say Microsoft are in charge of the numerology and leaving it to manufacturers to do the math.

And its simple but expensive math. WVGA screens, 1 GHz processors and dedicated GPUs are the minimum requirements for any set to run the brand new OS. Lets just repeat that those are the MINIMUM requirements.

No wonder then, the Samsung I8700 Omnia 7 has no choice but to be the Galaxy S of the new Windows phones. It has the same 4 inches of a gorgeous Super AMOLED screen, a 1GHz Snapdragon powerplant and it captures 5 megapixel photos and records HD videos. If there was one thing to hold against the I9000 Galaxy S it had to be the plastic finish. But Samsung listened to their customers and gave the Omnia 7 the same get-up as the first Bada phone.

So, the Omnia 7 seems to have it all to make a grand entrance premium build, powerful hardware and a brand new OS are all thrown into the mix. We can hardly think of any weak spots on the chassis.
