GSMArena has reviewed my current favourite phone, and while they came across as a bit nitpicky at times, especially about the size and external appearance of the device, they still found plenty to like about the interface, software bundle (especially the photo viewer) and hardware like the keyboard and camera.
The Samsung B7610 OmniaPRO is a very good handset overall with capabilities that can easily match the HTC Touch Pro2 class-leader. In fact the faster CPU and the AMOLED screen are quite significant improvements that one can receive by choosing the Samsung over the HTC.
Of course the Taiwanese company, has a lot more experience in producing this kind of devices and it shows. The TouchFLO3D UI looks much better suited for business-minded handsets like the two in question, than the multimedia-focused TouchWiz. The new features that Samsung introduced for the OmniaPRO do count here but only for reducing the distance, rather than earning it a victory. One mustn’t forget however that those are WinMo handsets we are talking about and porting the interface of one of them to run on the other is just a matter of time.
We are pretty certain that the B7610 OmniaPRO won’t sell as much as the Touch Pro2, if only for the larger fan mass that HTC have among WinMo users. However getting pretty close to the best is usually considered a huge success for newbie, let alone beating them at their own game now and then. And it seems to us that the Samsung B7610 OmniaPRO is pretty capable of doing exactly that.
