Samsung OmniaLITE B7300 Review
This is a global GSM phone. It can be used with AT&T and T-Mobile USA but without 3G.
The affordable smartphones that offer many functions typical of high-end devices have always been a major temptation for people who don’t feel like spending a fortune on a handset, but don’t mind getting cool extra features like a decent browser and additional applications. Unfortunately, these so-called “affordable” models are often plagued by issues, meaning you can easily end up with a handset with lower screen resolution or without Wi-Fi or find out the camera is much worse than you thought it would be, etc.
In this review we are taking a closer look at one of the latest contenders for the crown in the light-weighted Windows phone category, none other but the Samsung OmniaLITE B7300 that also happens to be one of the major rivals to the HTC Touch2 and Acer beTouch E200. So, stock up on food and drinks, switch off your phone and TV set and brace yourself for a most fierce smartphone clash.
The Samsung OmniaLITE B7300 looks inconspicuous, which doesn’t mean it´s unappealing. Quite the contrary, the overall design shows utmost attention to detail, makes the phone really attractive and comes with several offbeat elements like the honey-comb pattern on the back of the phone. Our unit is jet black, but the handset is also available in versions with red or blue upper and lower parts of the body.

The resistive screen is large enough for an affordable device and measures 3 inches. Well, the image quality will certainly fail to wow you with saturated colors, but at least pictures do not appear choppy thanks to the resolution of 240x400 pixels.
The send and end keys are on the front side, along with the Action button that generally, takes you a step back into the menus and sports silver framing that gives it a more stylish look. The volume rocker and Menu buttons are on the left hand side, while the camera shutter, microSD slot and screen lock/unlock button are on the opposite. Finally, the microUSB port is on the top and the 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus, but without flash is on the back, below the loudspeaker.
The Samsung OmniaLITE B7300 looks quite appealing and comes with large enough screen, but compact overall size that makes it really handy to use with one hand. Moreover, the phone is a far cry from feeling fragile to hold, because the build is very tight, without any loose parts.
