Samsung enables Extra Display setting on the Samsung Omnia 7 and Samsung Focus

Both the Samsung Focus S and Focus Flash / Omnia W have two extra settings available to the end-user: Auto-Display intensity and Key-vibration feedback. Samsung has just made them available to Omnia 7 and Focus owners via an applications in the marketplace (once installed the extra settings will be located in the OS’s settings menu). The Auto-Display intensity toggle is perfectly functional but the key-vibration option doesn’t have any effect on my Omnia 7. Let me know how it goes for you,  but remember that disabling auto-display intensity will shorten your battery life.

UPDATE: It appears like this app is once again not meant to run on the Omnia 7 and Focus. Besides the second option not working at all the auto-display brightness setting isn’t even saved. It will work as long as you the screen doesn’t shut down.If you power the screen back on it will revert to default… Thanks for nothing Samsung…

Anyway, let’s hope that Samsung get its act together and finally announces/ unveils something in the next few days. More picture after the break:

Samsung Video Call Mango application released

The Samsung Video Call Windows Phone 7.5 Mango application that was announced yesterday alongside the Samsung Omnia W device has just been released on the Marketplace today. AS you can see in the picture above the app is obviously not compatible with the Omnia 7 and Samsung Focus and will only work on the Samsung devices equipped with front facing cameras like the Samsung Focus S, Focus Flash and Omnia W. The warning message also indirectly confirms that the Allshare DLNA application which is currently not working on current handsets would be fully functional once the official firmwares are pushed out later this month (or else Samsung would have restricted its download like it just did with the Video Call application).
