While the Nokia drop all efforts to produce an army of smartphones Lumia on Windows Phone in close partnership with Microsoft, the Samsung prefer to gently release of one unit every six months on the OS Windows Phone. And today, the next review of the WP7-smartphone under the name Samsung Omnia M. It would be natural to assume that the Omnia M will be better and more advanced than its predecessor. Is that what we now consider.
Samsung Omnia M
Display. Of course, this is a brand samsung's Super AMOLED, which gives a vivid and vibrant picture. Model Samsung Omnia M can boast only one frequency GHz single-core processor, and - surprise - 384 MB of RAM. The internal memory is also a little bit - there are versions with four or eight gigabytes. The presence of microSD slot is silent, which means that its absence. This is a strange tradition - it's for users, how many gigabytes they need.
"Plate" interface Windows Phone in all its glory
The screen was bigger - 4 "diagonal instead of 3.7", which were at Omnia W. However, along with a small amount of RAM and less CPU frequency, it becomes an even greater mystery is how the phone will cope with video playback, even in spite of the fact that the resolution remains the same - 480x800 dpi.In this large four-inch screen, you might be able to review video conversation with the interlocutor (eg, Skype), and do you can try to show - which will contribute to the frontal VGA-camera. However, do not forget that the smartphone is very little power and a small amount of RAM - probably not enough for two flowing stream. Rear camera has remained the same - it is 5 megapixel with autofocus and a small LED-flash, video recording in HD (1280x720 pixels) and is centered at the top rear panel. Next to it you can see the gap dynamics for the call. But the front as usual: the screen on which you can see the Samsung logo and a narrow slit for the dynamics of conversations. Nearby sensors (accelerometer, proximity sensor and digital compass) and the front camera lens. And except for the big screen under the Windows logo button, nothing. That is, we can state the fact of the disappearance of the front panel buttons to search for and return.

This is a controversial word - Design. Oddly enough for an inexpensive model, but the smartphone is designed and being very attractive. Samsung Omnia M front, too, like many, is covered with a glossy black protective material that surrounds a rather nice silver bezel, making it recognizable among smartphone competitors - including direct relatives. Further, according to the plan we have is the back cover, which is beveled on all sides, and most definitely plastic and not very pretty. Between it and the above-mentioned border formally incorporated buttons on traditional smartphone Samsung - that is, on the right side are the power button and the camera, below - plug micro-USB, and on the left side - a volume control wheel. In general, the front of the smartphone is interesting, in the back - the same as everyone else. But overall, nice. Wireless interfaces, there is everything what is necessary, just some little bit disappointing. For example, aGPS, and Wi-FI 802.11 b / g / n - it is a very good, and Bluetooth - outdated and antiquated version 2.1 - not good. Given the fact that many new gadgets this year is already possible to see the fourth version of the most popular wireless protocol. However, with 3G (even with 3.5G) device with a more or less everything is in order: protocols are supported up to HSDPA. HSPA + is not, and that there is, thank you. And for the FM-radio, too.

Battery for Samsung Omnia M pretty decent capacity - 1500 mAh, which, however, counterbalanced by a large screen (with not very high resolution) and the small size of RAM. Dimensions of the smartphone - 121.6x64.1x10.5 mm, weight - 119 grams. Not very slim, but within the informal rules on thin gadgets.From the program point of view all is well in the smartphone as usual this is the case with Samsung. Recall that as the operating system is installed in the Omnia M Windows 7.5 Mango, as well as proprietary applications, we see the familiar program of Omnia W Photo Studio for easy photo editing, the application to exchange data AllShare, several branded hubs and mobile service ChatON. Everything else - the standard for Windows Phone, including Office, Xbox Live and SkyDrive. However, it was noted that the site is proposed to SkyDrive still quite limited - instead of the usual formerly Smartphone on Windows Phone with 25 GB Omnia M included only seven. It is unclear whether this policy of the Samsung, or Microsoft cuts back on space for new gadgets itself.
Samsung Omnia M - not exactly subtle, but not fat
And now you can try to summarize the above: in our view, at a moderate price on Samsung Omnia M (recall that the recently announced HTC Desire C - is also a budget smartphone, but on Android, promised a price of 200 euros), we will witness the struggle not only the purse, and ideologies. Technologies develop, cheaper smartphones, and only one brand too many potential buyers will not pay - especially if you have the opportunity to earn the same money more.
