Omnia launch sparks iPhone comparisons

7 January 2009 — 3:58 PM

With the recent launch of the Samsung Omnia in the US, a number of reviews have emerged that compare the handset to Apple's iPhone.

In news that could inform consumers looking to replace used phones with the latest contracts, I4U News states the latest touchscreen handset from Samsung has not aged well in the last few months.

The article states the Omnia would have been thought of as an innovative piece of kit in 2006, but adds that a poor touchscreen interface and high price have damaged the phone's appeal.

It compares the device to the similarly-sized old iPhone, noting that "it isn't a featherweight".

Elsewhere, the Mobile Tech Review website noted this week that the Omnia had failed to live up to its peers with its onboard memory and touchscreen technology.

"It doesn't rock our world the way capacitive iPhone [and] T-Mobile G1 screens do - and we'd like to not have to press so hard," the article concluded.
