Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's Touch Screen

Samsung's second take at the Omnia adds tons of features to this Windows Mobile and TouchWiz-based device. The Omnia II earns high marks in calling and camera performance, but comes up short in a few other areas.

Samsung's latest Windows Mobile 6.5 phone also runs the TouchWiz 2.0 user interface, meaning it skips most of Microsoft's experience and substitutes Samsung's. If you're looking for a smartphone packed with software and features galore, the Omnia II just might be for you. There are a few drawbacks to consider, however, and Phone Scoop weighs in on this weighty device.

It doesn't look to be that responsive, or it seems slow to go through the programs, is that a correct statement?

I figured that I have waited a year and a half for "the phone" from VZW, I thought this would be it but now I am very hesitant and wondering if I should wait a few months or look at a different brand?

Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
I have my old Omnia Modded to the hilt and absolutely love it! With my custom WinMo 6.5 Rom and Mobile Shell 3.5.2 I see no compelling reason to change as yet. I will wait to see what good Smartphones Verizon will have that will work with LTE when t...

Old Omnia

I'm a power user of the older Omnia. I have a better form of windows mobile 6.5 than this version. Other than the screen, is there really an advantage in upgrading? I know that the specs are better but I'm worried that there won't be the ROM's available for this version to make it worth it.
