Samsung Omnia Pro B7610 review

The boys over at GSMArena reviewed Samsung’s latest slide-out qwerty based smartphone running Windows Mobile. With it’s vibrant 3.5″ AMOLED screen and speedy 800Mhz OpenGL ES 2.0 CPU (S3C6410) the Omnia Pro B7610 is in direct competition with the HTC Touch Pro 2. Will the AMOLED screen and speedy processor make up for the shortfalls of the somewhat messy TouchWiz 2 UI ? Looks like this is the question. Do you want HTC’s amzing TouchFlo UI or a faster CPU and AMOLED screen but with a not so good UI ?
