This is the worst phone I have ever had!! Considering it was supposed to be a competitor for the I phone it's nothing in comparison. The touch screen is not very responsive, and it is not easy to navigate. I cannot wait to get another phone. The only good thing about it is the camera but again difficult to work out where photos are stored or how to move. (read more)

I have now come to the end of an 18 month contract and cannot wait to replace the handset. Other reviews cited a poor operating system, unresponsive screen, freezing and hanging applications; I'm afraid to say this is all true and in my experience in many respects generous.
I have also found that reception is poor on this handset, no or limited signal in areas were other phones (on the same network) have full strength.
There are very few redeeming features of this handset, in fact I... (read more)

Had the phone for nearly a year now and have had a love hate relationship with this phone. It has crashed a few times but none more than my windows pc does, ive found some brilliant apps and its become my mp3 player of choice (esp at gym). i do find the touchscreen to be non responsive sometimes though and the original software for contacts is rubbish, spb shell is a necessity! i have had duplicate texts sent but this seems intermittent and only really annoying for the person receiving...

This phone would be a good phone if it actually worked properly. The first Omnia I had was was a complete LEMON. Touch screen wouldn't work, ringer would change ringtones, ringer would ring then not ring,some calls would come through,some wouldn't(and this in in regular tower zones)the texting would change languages...It was sooo weird. I took it in ...they gave me a new one. I am currently on my 5th omnia phone from april to Nov. The common problem being the phones would freeze and the... (read more)

This phone is good but you need a little time and the new SPB shell costs £20 from Handster. This new software shell changes the phone completely and transforms it from a fairly dull unit to something similar to the iphone. The software WM 6.1 is fast enough and the features work a treat. Bluetooth, GPS, media play and access to all things like facebook, email internet etc is a single touch of the screen.
I like it it does everything well. (read more)

Have had the Samsung Omnia now for 8 months, on an 18 month contract and am very disappointed with the phone, and pretty much have been since the day I got it but thought I would get used to it. Very difficult to use, cannot see the screen outside and the phone often freezes.
I pay £35 a month and do not like the phone at all, but im not sure if there is any way of getting out of the contract, could anyone help?

I had the Samsung i900 Omnia phone less than a week and the screen froze, they replaced it and 5 months later it will not charge. It has been back supposedly to be repaired and once again it will not charge a week later. I am a bit annoyed!! (read more)

i900 Omnia is the 1st Samsung i have ever had and i will not be rushing to get another one. Can't see the screen outside in sunlight, it freezes regularly, need to use the stylus to make a call apart from your 4 favourite people. Won't connect to my TomTom (710) i had to buy a nokia for this. (read more)

In my opinion the Samsung i900 phone is not user friendly.
The user interface is not fast enough.
The presses are still inaccurate when using the keyboard.
The notion of "there is no need of a stylus" should not be in the same sentence as this phone.
When the battery goes dead it is really dead no chance to revive it for the car charger connect to the cigarette lighter.
No chance of seeing the screen if you use it in daylight.
Do not ever try to use this phone to call when you are driving... (read more)

Hi, this is my first real frustrated comment ever on the net. If you are a business man like me and time is rather vital for you counts by seconds I strongly advice you not even to look or think about buying I900 omniyeh for it's rather slow system, slow in responding, and the camera is even slow if you are to catch a speedy scene. If you want to be sorry the rest of your life then consider buying i900, you'll be sorry that no one can help you... yet you are alone, believe me I bought the... (read more)

I got the Samsung Omnia i900 16GB about four months ago and have to say I am a little disappointed. I got the handset for free on a cheap 2-year contract from Orange, although if I had paid for it I would have been very dissatisfied.
The feature set on the Samsung Omnia is good with 3G, Wi-fi, full internet and a host of Windows Mobile programs. However, the touch-screen is unresponsive and innaccurate - it is pressure-sensitive, rather than the electro-static method used by the Apple... (read more)

Not enough hours in the day day to describe how utterly disappointing the Samsung i900 Omnia phone is. Slow, poor sound volume, has a habit of resetting the options (esp when trying to sync). Runs Windows (should have been a warning in itself!). Puts sent tests into the Inbox! Which nutter thought of that one. Only seems to hold a history of the last 25 so mails recieve (inc the ones you sent).

I didn't like the Samsung i900 Omnia from day 1 but thought I will get used to it. But it is still as complicated... The system is just....bad. The internet is slow and hell to use on this phone. You can't even scroll down or zoom in without sceen flicking and doing all sorts of things you don't want it to do. The touch screen is even worse, slow to respond and if/when respond, doesn't take you to where you want it to take you. I am on my 4th month of 18 months contract with O2 but really... (read more)

Samsung i900 Omia is a fantastic phone. I can not understand how on earth anyone would find it hard to use, I set up mine exactly how I wanted it very quickly and was used to it in under a day. I upgraded to this from a terrible red light freezing useless Sony and so far this phone has not let me down once. The battery life seems fair to me, one charge lasts at least 2 days even with my Facebook addiction. I have to say I've had every type of phone including Orange SPV's, Motorola, Nokia... (read more)

The Samsung i900 Omnia is a great phone but the WiFi heats the phone up a bit, but not enough to stop the unit charging. Samsung's official response to my problem was to buy a bluetooth GPS device?!?!?! What's the point of having a built in GPS then? When used as GPS navigator in car after 30 minutes unit heats up to 80 c or 176 F which causes the unit to stop charging even while plugged into power. Can not charge phone until cooled down.
