Samsung B7300 OmniaLITE review: The light side of life

 

It's business as usual on the WinMo front and all the action seems to be around the upper end of the pricing scale. Impressive as those top PocketPCs may be, they are hardly the stuff that makes the sales meters tick and bring the profits that fuel the...

3" 65K-color resistive touchscreen of WQVGA resolution ; Quad-band GSM support ; 3G with 3.6 Mbps HSDPA ; Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional OS with TouchWiz UI ; Samsung ARM 1176 667MHz CPU and 256 MB of RAM ; 3 megapixel autofocus camera with smile...

Low-end display resolution ; No standard 3.5mm audio jack ; Poor screen sunlight legibility ; No two-position shutter key, despite autofocus functionality ; No stylus slot

Samsung B7300 OmniaLITE is one of the very few that dare to try and bring Windows Mobile to the masses. Budget PocketPCs are not unheard of but what makes OmniaLITE different is WinMo 6.5. The compact full-touch handset has the essentials perfectly...

It doesn't look like an Omnia handset - it has managed to avoid the slabby black look and has gone for a combination of brushed metal and an interesting cellular pattern on the back.

Samsung OmniaLITE B7300 - A little bit of everything and more

 

One of the well-equipped phones we've seen in a long time, the Samsung OmniaLITE B7300 will definitely give you your money's worth with its fair amount of features and good functionality. For those who want an all-around phone with good touchscreen...

Samsung Omnia Lite B7300 review

 

New Windows Mobile 6.5 phone is merely 'ok'

Wi-Fi and HSDPA ; A-GPS with Google Maps ; Windows Phone tools ; Mobile Office suite ; Decent media player

Windows Mobile 6.5 OS ; Screen required stylus ; Sometimes ponderous performance when apps open ; Accelerometer not engaged automatically on some apps ; No 3.5mm headphone socket ; No flash on 3.2-megapixel camera

The Samsung Omnia Lite has plenty of features and a generous amount of applications stacked up inside. The Windows Mobile 6.5 increases usability a bit from previous versions of the OS, but it's not a great leap forward in terms of overall...

Samsung's Omnia Lite squeezes a lot of tech into a small handset. Niall checks it out.

However, there are still too many occasions when you find yourself in fiddly settings screens that have obviously been designed for stylus rather than finger input and this makes the whole experience come across as a bit disjointed, especially in...

Samsung Omnia Lite review

 

The Samsung Omnia Lite is a good-looking phone with a decent line-up of features, but its overly complicated software and slow performance make it difficult to recommend

Fairly low price tag ; Good range of features ; Small and light for a smart phone

Sluggish performance ; Poor camera ; Messy user interface

Conclusion The Omnia Lite's mishmash of Windows Mobile and TouchWiz is messy, and the handset feels much more sluggish than Samsung's recent Android phones. Consequently, despite its decent line-up of features, slim profile and relatively low price, we...

Samsung Omnia Lite Review by 3G.co.uk

 

Despite the good features, usability makes this handset flawed and

Push-email for Microsoft Exchange accounts, a good internet browser and a fast, capable three-megapixel camera

The tie-on (!) stylus is large, the touch-screen slow and the user interface uninspiring

Despite the good features, usability makes this handset flawed and frustrating.

We review the Samsung Omnia Lite, a pocket-friendly Windows Mobile 6.5 touchscreen smartphone with Wi-Fi, A-GPS and stacks of features

Compact, slim design ; HSDPA high speed 3G connectivity ; Wi-Fi ; 3-inch touchscreen ; Widgets customisation ; A-GPS and Google Maps ; Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone functionality ; Very good selection of applications including Office Mobile suite

Resistive screen requires stylus ; Not enough finger space on some options as screen can be unreponsive in places ; Windows Phone OS not intuitive and can be clunky ; Sometimes slow to respond ; Texting process could be better ; Average camera
