Samsung Omnia II (Verizon Wireless) Review
The good: The Samsung Omnia II boasts a spacious and sharp AMOLED touch screen. Samsung's TouchWiz 2.0 user interface gives the Omnia II great customization options and is easy to use. The Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone also has advanced multimedia features, Wi-Fi, 3G support, Bluetooth, and GPS.
The bad: Omnia II is a bit bulky; Swype keyboard takes some acclimation; can occasionally be sluggish.
The bottom line: While not the most powerful smartphone on the market, the Samsung Omnia II features an improved user interface and a richer multimedia experience to make it a worthy upgrade over its predecessor and one of the best Windows Mobile devices on the market.
