Monty--the reviewer forgot one word "viewer/editor". It's from the official specs on the same site: http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_i900_omnia-2422.php

To me, the only advantage of the Diamond is the Touchflo3D & VGA screen. But, that can be ported and you're right, the resolution doesn't mean anything if the screen is too tiny. I'm leaning towards the Omnia too.

wrong review - its hardwarezone
What about "navigation"?
there is a huge diference between viewer and editor. If I hadn't of known better, that would of given me a bit of an issue. One word can make a world of diference. If they have these inacuracies, what else could they have? (take it from a novice point of view). Anyway, thats not what this thread is about so i'm gona leave it there - and go home from the office as well! :)

Default TO the owners of Omnia

How is the sound quality of the phone? Especially the head set. You know the head set which comes with HTC are a piece of s**t.. The headset looks good on pictures.
