Samsung I8700 Omnia 7 review: A whole new galaxy

 

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 you're all adding two and two together. Our Windows Phone 7 review was based on this...

Samsung Omnia 7 - The Super AMOLED Way

 

Samsung's WP7 device comes with a 4.0-inch AMOLED screen, a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor and a lightweight body of 138g. How does it stand out amidst the other WP7 smartphones? Hit the jump to find out.

Samsung Omnia 7 Review

 

The Samsung Omnia 7 is one of the first Windows Phone 7 Smartphones to be released, it is currently available in Europe, and the model tested in this review is a UK version.

The Samsung Omnia 7 is quite an impressive handset, definitely one of the better smartphones we have reviewed this year, and I was pleasantly surprised with Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 OS.
