Samsung Omnia M Review

Samsung Omnia M Review Specifications and feature - While we sit and wait for the Windows 8 Phone to sweep us of our feet, Samsung has decided to keep us occupied with the very modest Windows Phone powered Omnia M. So, will the Omnia M offer performance to match its unassuming spec sheet, or will we end up pleasantly surprised?.

Straight out of the box there’s nothing mind blowing about this device, its understated metal grey shell and no frills form factor pretty much sets this in line with other mid-range devices. But don’t be fooled, the Omnia M is an excellent all rounder and certainly not a handset to be mocked.

Sporting a Super AMOLED 4-inch display, the Omnia M’s screen doesn’t match those seen on the recent Lumia 900 or Samsung Galaxy S III, but it perfectly accommodates the Windows Platform and its signature live tile menu system. The colours knocked out are pretty sharp, whether you’re playing games, watching videos or viewing snaps you’ve taken.

A 1GHz single-core processor lies beneath the chassis, which comes in at just 10.5mm thick, weighing a light 120g. The Omina M handles multitasking extremely well and there is no lag even when opening apps. The device is available in 4GB and 8GB storage options, although much to our disappointment there is no slot for a Micro SD card to extend the memory even further.

The Windows Phone 7 Tango OS features the simple yet sleek Metro user interface, making organising often used apps and what not an absolute dream. Users can also personalize the home screen without it getting too cluttered, making navigation on the platform even quicker. There’s a 5 megapixel camera on the back, with the welcome addition of a shutter button, just the job for snapping up images while you’re on the go.

Samsung has also included something called the Photo Studio app which allows you to customise your images, by altering the colour balance and adding quirky frames, but aside from making them look pretty it doesn’t improve the sharpness of your pictures. There is also an additional VGA front facing camera, which comes in useful for video calling, although don’t expect footage to be of that high a quality.

Video capture from the rear-mounted snapper however is slightly more impressive offering 720p, resulting in a high standard of playback. All of your multimedia content can be accessed by the music and video hub which works alongside Microsoft’s Zune program. Surfing the net is a breeze with Windows’ Internet Explorer, which provides seamless, tabbed browsing, making multitasking as easy as on your PC at home.

Social networking is looked after by Microsoft’s People Hub, a handy feature that is perfect for bringing together your contact details, social network updates and all of your personal information, in one easy-to-reach place. Gamers will be pleased to learn that Xbox live integration crops up – well it is a Windows Phone device after all Through all of this the battery life is pretty good. After an overnight charge it lasted a whole day of us using all of the features and downloading apps. This makes us pretty confident that unless you’re thrashing the data it could last even longer.

So, there we have it, the Omnia M is a modest handset but ideal for anyone wanting to experience the solid and reliable Windows platform. You really can’t judge this device by looks alone, because although the Omnia M might not have the top techie trimmings of recent Windows handsets, it’s certainly one to be desired.
