"Great all-round phone"4.5 starson by sirpeter
Pros: Smaller than the iPhone but screen is amazing. 8GB internal memory = thousands of pictures or enough video for any event. GPS, Camera is 5MP with various settings. Easy searching and access to my Gmail account with the already installed Google app.
Cons: Occasionally sluggish though not much. Shiny surface smudges but this can't be seen when screen is on.
Summary: I've been pleasantly surprised by how many things this phone does well. I've been a long-time Nokia user and was afraid to switch because every other phone I've ever tried was horrible in terms of text messaging. The Omnia II gives you several different text input modes and the on-screen input works well and is very accurate. Other features like the 5MP camera are good, the video mode is even better. Downloading apps is a breeze and you're not tied to a single store like with the iPhone. I've used the GPS as well and it got me where I wanted to go. Office mobile is a plus - I can read documents without issue on the high res screen. Web searching and browsing is easy - just a little getting used to the idea of zooming in and out compared to a PC browser. This phone also has full motion sensing which is great for viewing pictures - just rotate the screen and the pictures fill the screen accordingly. I also love the "Etiquete Mode" - place the phone face-down when in a meeting or at night and calls won't disturb you - but the alarm still sounds.
Coolness factor? Apple still reigns with a slicker interface but this phone is slimmer, is a great all-rounder that can do more than the iPhone - and it costs less.
