Spotlight: Samsung Omnia II

Unboxing the Omnia II

If you tried the original Samsung Omnia and were disappointed, you might be tempted to pass on the Omnia II, but that could be a big mistake. Samsung's latest iteration of the Omnia, the SCH-i920, which runs on the Verizon Wireless network, is a big improvement -- so much so that it just might be an iPhone killer.

I have this phone. I love it. I really do. I love the big screen. The touch is super responsive, tons of cool features, but alas.. one thing is missing that sets this phone back 5 yrs. When you connect your bluetooth to the phone. There is no voice dialing. I have read several forums on this topic and have found about a 50-50 split on whether or not Microsoft Voice Command works on this phone. Other than that... a very nice phone... just don't try to speak to it :)
