Verizon Samsung Omnia II reviewed

Omnia II review
PhoneArena just published their review of Verizon‘s Samsung Omnia II (i920) which was released last week. As it’s usually the case with them, they’ve posted a whole lot of pictures of the device, samples etc.. Here’s what they concluded:

So does the Samsung Omnia II i920 deliver? Yes and no. In one aspect, the device is a major upgrade from the original Omnia i910, as it comes with a large AMOLED display, Windows Mobile 6.5 Pro, TouchWiz 2.0, and faster processor. But at the same time other smartphones have been released, such as the HTC Imagio, DROID ERIS, and Motorola DROID, all of which have significantly changed the landscape. Because of this, we feel the Omnia II is a few months late on the scene and doesn’t impress the power-user as much as it would have earlier this summer. This doesn’t take away from the features the device offers, which are many, but the Imagio provides a faster Windows Mobile experience with less lag, while the Android devices are generating a larger following each day. With all of this in mind, we believe the Samsung Omnia II i920 is for the die-hard Windows Mobile user or for the consumer that either needs or is required to have a WinMo device because of their job and to run specific applications on. At this point, the average smartphone user has a selection of better and easier devices to choose from, which isn’t the Samsung Omnia II i920.

That’s what I’ve been saying all along. The release of the Omnia II is a little too late unfortunitely. Head over here to read the full review.
