The Samsung Omnia M is a bit of a mystery handset, even in the Windows Phone community, so it is rather surprising to see the first full review of the device popping up on online phone retailer Dailaphoneâ€™s website.
Their review is however excellent, labelling the device as a good mid-ranger whose main feature is the slick OS rather than they hardware.
They report the design is underwhelming, build quality is good, the screen is impressive for the device, the device is fast and lag-free, battery life good, storage is limited and the camera satisfactory.
On initial inspection of the Samsung Omnia M, our expectations were not particularly high. The handset design can be described as utilitarian at best and, on paper, the tech spec leaves a lot to be desired. However, after spending some extended time with the device, we were thoroughly won over with its no frills approach. The limited hardware specification has no discernible effect on performance and the Windows Phone OS is, in our opinion, possibly the most user-friendly mobile platform currently available.
The handset probably wonâ€™t appeal to those seeking out cutting edge design and flagship features. However, users looking for a solid, understated Windows Phone device could do much worse than seek out the Samsung Omnia M.
The device scored 3.5/5 starts in their review. Read the full review here.
