The old Omnia is still available from Samsung

One of the latest Samsung devices to tempt those recycling mobile phones has been put to the test by Cnet this week.

The site's Flora Graham looked at the South Korean manufacturer's updated Omnia HD - which also goes by the product name of the i8910 HD - and highlights some of its good and bad points.

She states the screen, which incorporates AMOLED technology, is "dazzling" and the inclusion of an eight-megapixel camera, high-resolution video recording and a "good-looking user interface" are also praised.

In addition, the newest version of the Symbian operating system keeps things "meaty", but some concern is voiced over slow performance when running multiple applications.

"The best Symbian touchscreen phone out there," Ms Graham concludes. "Add a gorgeous AMOLED screen and high-quality video recording, along with generous memory, and the Samsung i8910 HD is an entertainment powerhouse."

Owners of the original Samsung Omnia could be tempted to trade up for the new device - which could be funded by recycling their old one.
