The OMNIA W's 1500 mAh battery lasts a day with judicious video and audio playback, in addition to some gaming and Wi-Fi usage — that too despite keeping the 3G radio switched on at all times. That means, you don't have to carry the...

The Samsung Omnia W is not going to attract the iPhone and Android masses and doesn't really offer anything new. However, this is a very good mid-range smartphone at a relatively competitive price. Slick performance, an excellent user experience and...

The Samsung Omnia W is Samsung’s second Windows Phone based smartphone, and is more affordable than the 4-inch screened Omnia 7. It also has a faster processor than that other handset, with the addition of a front camera. With these elements in...

The phone has good build quality with metal back, and the front facing camera along with the Super AMOLED display is great for the price. The battery life is not great that lasts a day on 3G with few calls, Audio playback and FM Radio. The phone gets...

It really is a close call between the Lumia 710 and the Omnia W. If you started here , you'd think there's no story to tell. Of course, it's the (sometimes minor) details that set these virtually identical phones apart. The Lumia 710 does...

The Samsung Omnia W is attractively priced if you're looking for a SIM-free Windows Phone. The screen is large enough to deliver a decent web browsing (if you can live without Flash), mobile email and document production/editing experience, while...

The Samsung Omnia W boasts a faster processor and a more rounded design than its predecessor, but doesn't offer enough to entice rival smartphone users to the Windows Phone platform. This is not the juicy mango we're looking for....

You must've figured it by now. If you're coming from an Omnia 7 you can pass right along - nothing much for you here. The Omnia W has a smaller screen and less storage than its predecessor - and the beefed up processor cannot quite make up for...

The next Windows Phone 7 experience comes from Samsung in the form of their recently announced Omnia W I8530. With the likes of the Nokia’s Lumia 800 and the possible under Rs.20,000, Lumia 710, the competition is getting quite fierce. The Omnia...

After weighing in all its positives and negatives, we can say that the Samsung Omnia W is one decent all-around smartphone, especially when we take its price point into account. Sure, it may not come bragging with a dual-core processor, tons of RAM,...

For a price of just under Rs 20k, the Omnia W is a very good smartphone to consider, if you want to experience Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango). We would strongly urge that you did, if you have been using an Android (or even an iPhone) all this while. The...
