Our Samsung OmniaPRO B7610 Review is now published - click here to read it.

Camera and Multimedia:

The 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash that is located on the back utilizes pretty much the same interface as the Samsung OMNIA i910. Some functions are conspicuous in their absence, although none of the missing is of utmost importance – you have face and smile detection, white balance, color effects, ISO sensitivity settings and a number of presets. Videos are captured at VGA resolution, which looks slightly below par for a contemporary cell phone, but the Samsung OmniaPRO B7610 is designed to be an unpretending device in terms of video capture anyway. We took several snapshots and a short clip, so you can get an idea of the camera performance. Just keep in mind the handset is a prototype, so we shouldn’t jump to conclusions about the camera quality.

The phone TouchPlayer unifies all audio (visualized by relevant album or artist) and video content available. We are pleased to see the player appears differently when switched to landscape – it turns to something quite similar to what can be seen on the Samsung OMNIA HD i8910 (or rather, Cover Flow on the iPhone), with large album art and a row of letters below it that allows filtering. Selecting a particular album makes all available tracks show up, so you can choose what to play. There is also the intriguing option to change playback speed and we must say listening to Rihanna´s Pon de Replay at 1.5 times the normal speed is an awesome, unmatched experience!

Watching videos with the Samsung OmniaPRO B7610

Videos can be browsed in portrait mode, show up with preview frames and each one of the latter casts a really nicely looking reflection downwards. We didn’t have any troubles watching DivX content on the prototype, but Xvid video files just wouldn’t play. Still, we are sure the problem will have been fixed by the time the Samsung OmniaPRO B7610 rolls out.



Expectations:

We do expect the Samsung OmniaPRO B7610 will prove to be one of the best business oriented handsets when it finally appears on the market. The profound Windows Mobile personalization pack is impressive indeed. We believe Samsung has managed to take their device to another level and is about to throw down the gauntlet to the leader on the Windows Mobile smartphone market – HTC. We can only guess at what´s in the cards for the Samsung OmniaPRO B7610 and how the retail version will stack up against the competition, but we think the phone stands a pretty good chance of making it to the top.

I was considering the HTC Touch Pro 2, but the Omnia PRO seems to have it "beat". The pics of the User Interface looks very appealing. The AOLED display, 5mp camera, and "fast" CPU driving it (800mhz vs. 528 on the TP2) adds icing to the cake.

samsung really did a good job with this one fast processor, up-to-date camera and a large display. the qwerty looks better than that of the impression and the style and overall design looks awesome even though i have a samsung touch phone (the behold), im not a fan of the touchwiz ui, but this phone really steps it up a bit. it now actually looks appealing and very refined to actually be useful

Do you have a sample of a video taken with the phone so as to give us an idea of what to expect? Definitely interesting in getting this phone to replace my old P1i which I cant fault as it still works very well but with UIQ dead and me needing a replacement, this will be an excellent choice.

Thank you for the comment. We've added a video sample, but keep in mind this is not a final unit.

Can anyone ascertain the 3G/HSDPA speed? Is it 3.6 or 7.2? This is important if the B7610 is to become a leading business smartphone.

Some specs say 3.6 others say 7.2. I'm leading to the 7.2 side.
