Description

Samsung Omnia W is a stylish Windows Phone 7.5 Mango smartphone with a rather thin 0.43-inch profile and relatively lightweight 4.07-ounce body. Designwise, it's similar to the original Omnia 7, but instead of going for a strictly rectangular shape, here the edges are rounded. It's also a hair thinner and half an ounce lighter. But the key word in the description of the W series seems to be balance as the handset doesn’t shine with anything in particular in the hardware department. It features a 3.7-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, while under the hood a 1.4GHz processor runs along with 512MB of RAM. On the back, there’s a 5-megapixel camera recording 720p video footage, while up front a VGA shooter will make video conferencing easier.The rest is pretty standard - 14.4Mbps HSPA connectivity, 8 gigs of on-board memory, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi b/g/n and A-GPS.

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 252 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
