    I've had a Focus and a bunch of other phones recently. So far my Focus has been the best phone I've used. I really want to try the Omnia 7, but the extra $100 over the Focus price tag scares me a bit. Is the extra $100 US worth it?

    Basically they are the same phones gekkoace, i much prefer the sexy design and shape of the Omnia 7 (Square) and it has an all metal casing too, other than that I wouldn't bother. (IMO)

    Remember the new Samsung Focus S & Flash will be along soon too.

    (Still waiting for a European equivalent announcement from Samsung here grrrrr)

    I don't think there is enough of a difference between the two.

    LOL I know for a fact you will love the design it's simply gorgeous compared to the plasticy Focus. :)

    Please let me know what you think of it when it arrives. :)

    Some people just have no patience. ;)

    Omnia 7 is much better, since it is the only WinPhone that has a soldered flash memory instead of a SD-Card. Gives you about 100% additional write speed. If you sync large music data with Zune you will notice the difference.

    There's an Omnia 7 on eBay for $195. Do unlocked phones get screwy with Mango?

    I've had quite a few unlocked phones and have never had an issue with any update or patch.

    Is it worth the $195 to get one? Looks pretty cool, and not all that much.

    If you didn't have a Focus and were looking for a WP7 phone. I would say jump on it.

    everywhere else online is 250 to 300. So, yes.. Based off that 195 is a great price.

    Wahooo! I got my Omnia7 today! I like it much more than my Focus. The shape and materials are better. I didn't like how the focus seemed platicy.
    The best feature though... Is definitely that the start button is an actual button.
    3g and everything seems to be working just fine on ATT. I was also able to force the Mango update :)

    The Omnia looks great and runs great. The only downside compared to the Focus would be the lack of an SD slot. Unless you can get the 16GB version, 8GB is pretty painful.

    It's going for pretty cheap around, I got mine on a 12-month plan (ha!). If you've got money to spare, I'd recommend waiting for the Focus S or Flash.

    Great stuff gekkoace, it didn't take too long to arrive for you. So pleased you like it, my favourite thing is the design, i just love square chocolate bar shape, but the all metal construction does hurt your teeth when you try to eat it.

    What i always wonder is why didn't they just release the Omnia in the US too.

    Oh well, won't matter now that you have one to add to your collection. :)
