Samsung Omnia Lite reviewed


showimageCA0J3TMZ PhoneArena has published a hands-on review of the Samsung Omnia Lite, Samsung’s cheaper version of the Samsung Omnia 2. The device features a 3 inch 400×240 screen, similar to the original Samsung Omnia, but lacks the massive built-in storage on the Omnia, with only the usual 512 MB ROM, and of course features more low-end looks.

The device is however free of the proprietary ports which turned many people of the original Omnia, featuring microUSB sync and charge and , according to one site, a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

The device reviewed by PhoneArena was running Windows Mobile 6.5, and seemed to use this as the default interface, but also had Samsung’s TouchWiz 2.0 interface available as an option, and a legion of touch-optimized apps, including unusually a file explorer.

Just because the device is cheap does not mean its devoid of features, with the quadband GSM/tri-band (non-US) 3G device having a 3.2 megapixel auto-focus camera, GPS, accelerometer and  FM radio.
