Samsung Omnia 7

Big display for Redmond's redial

Smart choice

Like most Windows Phone 7 handsets the Omnia 7 has 8GB of user memory, which even though it can't be expanded, is still a fair amount of space given that the OS has it's own memory to play in. Samsung reckons almost 7GB is usable and I found no reason to doubt that.

Limited to just 8GB on-board storage

Verdict

While the Samsung Omnia is a likeable phone, up against the competition it soon becomes a battle of platforms rather than devices. If you like, or want, Windows Phone 7, the Samsung Omnia 7 shows it to its full potential, with a glorious screen and a respectable battery life. If you want more than just the odd snap or video clip, then be prepared to carry a decent camera with you too. ®
