Can you tell us what is icluded in the box of the i8910. (Maybe with some pics)

@ Prom1

Take a look at this thread over at Samsung Mobile Innovator. A guy from the innovator team confirms that it uses AMR.

yep, Samsung has decided to go with 2003 sound recording technology unbelievably. Its definately the AMR codec.

DAMN! You guys were not kidding!! I stand corrected.
Now, the Xperia X1 or its upgrade or the N86, N97 will get my upgrade dollars or I'll just wait until my E71 gives out.

Sure the i8910 sound recording is not quite up to par but. I still think it hands down beats the phones mentioned above hardware and software wise. In all aspects apart from the qwerty keyboard. Oh and i would also like to know what items are included in the box

@floatlite:

Which GSM and 3G HSDPA bands are supported by your new Omnia HD?
How's the battery life?

Thanks.

At Samsung Mobile UK ( http://uk.samsungmobile.com/m[....]/samsung-i8910hd-specification ) in the specs of Omnia HD, it appears GSM 900/1800/1900 y 3G 850/900/1900/2100
But, as you mentioned at GSM Arena it says GSM 850/900/1800/1900 and 3G HSDPA 900/1900/2100
Who's right about this???

Got mine today and first impressions are good. I've got to admit that I like Symbian and WinMo so the change from WinMo 6.1 wasn't really a biggie for me.

The whole unit is so much faster than the i900 and the screen is great from both a sensitivity point of view and image quality. S60 is a simpler OS than WinMo but it takes away that "make do with" thing that under lies touch operation on Windows Mobile devices; because at some point the nice 3rd party UI hits the Microsoft OS.

Texting is nicer than on the standard Omnia due to the screen size, sensitivity and lack of lag.

The AMR thing really doesn't bother me as I only really tend to shoot video of my 5 year old son and watch it back on the handset or message it out to my wife's mobile. The picture quality of the video is on a completely different level to anything else I've owned, but then they were all SE handsets other than the previous Omnia.

I can't fugure out what that the little hinged thing with the landard is for, I'm sure it's great whatever it is though!!

Yakkaimono - Phone, Battery, Headphones, Wall Charger, USB Lead/Charger and little doobrey I mentioned above.

Thanks!

It would be nice if you could report something about the web browsing and the battery life.

I like the browser, it seems to be applied better than Opera was on the i900. I found the i900 Omnia really fiddly to use as the zoom function could be a pain. Sometimes it zoomed to places that I didn't click or the slide zoom at the side zoomed when you wanted to scroll. The i8910 is similar to use but it's executed better, it zooms to where I tell it to zoom and has been fairly quick bringing pages down over WiFi and 3G.

A nice function is the back option that shows all of the previous pages as a sort of carousel. You roll it backwards and forwards to select the page you want.

I can't really say too much about the battery yet as it's been on charge for most of the morning and then been plugged into the USB copying music and video over. It charges from the USB so it's full still.

I've not really found anything to grumble at with the whole handset so far. I'm sure a bit more use will dig something up though.

can you post some sample pics?
the omnia hd should have the same camera sensor as the innov8 but from all reviews that doesn't show.
then again, the pics i've seen weren't the best.

I'm at work today but I'll try and get some pics done and uploaded this evening. First impressions from the couple of shots I took yesterday, outside in good light, was that it was a much better camera than the i900.

The phone comes in the usual Orange branded box with the Orange bumf, manuals, etc. The only branding on the phone is a small, less than 1 cm, Orange cube logo on the back cover with the i8910 number next to it. UI wise from the menu view (not a Widget fan) there's Orange World which is the Web Browser with Orange homepage. It doesn't seem like this is changeble but obviously I can add bookmarks such as google. There is also the Orange Music Store that installs as an app when first used. Other than that there's an Orange Maps Widget in the Widgets bar which takes you to the Orange Maps page to download/buy their Sat Nav.

There really isn't much enforced as far as Orange branding goes. I would imagine the noticable difference will be seen when the phone is de-branded and I can see what Orange have removed over the original Nokia/Samsung OS.

As of right now ANY model with the 850Mhz 3G band is NOT shipping. Currently Orange UK is the ONLY reliable source on bands supported on an Omnia i8910 because its SHIPPING and verifiable.

I don't fully trust GSMArena as they've made mistakes before, then edited their content.
