Disclaimer: The unit that I procured isn’t a final test unit. Thus there are several software glitches that are being worked through (i.e the browser). To be fair, this review will concentrate more on the look and feel of the device including the integration of S60 as the user interface of choice. But yeah. I can’t help it … Must. Review. Phone.
Here it is. After frolicking with Samsung’s new OMNIA HD, I can summarize the experience in one phrase: the Samsung OMNIA HD is essentially a slightly improved Nokia 5800 XpressMusic phone built within Samsung’s elegant exterior with a bright 3.7 inch screen.
Announced early this year in MWC 2009, the Samsung Ultra Touch (UltraTOUCH) is now here in the Philippines. Although the official launch is still set for tomorrow, I was able to steal a demo unit from their office. My first impressions cover a whole day of usage.
