TouchWiz 2 vs TouchFlo3D 2.5
The two big boys of the Windows Mobile World is unquestionably Samsung Omnia 2 and the HTC HD2. I am sure our readers know the specifications very well, but as a quick recap the main differentiating features is the 3.7 inch resistive AMOLED screen on the Samsung Omnia 2 vs the 4.3 inch Capacitive TFT screen on the HTC HD2, the 800 Mhz older ARM processor on the Omnia 2 vs the 1 Ghz new generation ARM Snapdragon processor on the HD2 and and the TouchWiz 2 UI on the Omnia 2 vs the TouchFlo3D on the HD2.
AreaMobile.de has a collection of photos and screen shots showing off the two giants.
The HTC HD2 is 121x67x11 vs 118 x 60 x 11.9 mm for the Samsung Omnia 2. Strangely that extra 1 mm on the Omnia 2 seem to make a big difference in the appearance of the device, while the HD2 is clearly a much broader, less phone-like device than the Omnia 2.
Of course the big difference between the screens, besides being capacitive vs resistive, is the different display technology. The Omnia 2â€™s screen is clearly a lot more vibrant than the HTC HD2â€™s, and may be a deal breaker or deal maker for some.
Interestingly Samsungâ€™s skinning of Windows Mobile is in some ways deeper than HTCâ€™s
As can be seen from the above pictures, Samsungâ€™s mail client is skinned more deeply than HTCâ€™s, and this extends even into other applications like Marketplace, which we would not normally expected to be affected. This makes for a more consistent experience.
This last screen shot shows how some of Samsungâ€™s applications also seem more usefully developed than HTCâ€™s, even though HTCâ€™s version may look prettier.
