Samsung i8910 HD (OmniaHD)

The i8910 HD is Orange-exclusive in the UK

The Samsung i8910 HD features a capacitive 3.7 in AMOLED 360x640 screen, an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus, an accompanying LED flash and a truck load of trickery that you'd normally find in your digital camera, including Smile Shot, Blink Shot, Panorama and Face Detection.

The video ability is also impressive, bringing 720p recording at 24 frames per second, and playback includes DivX/Xvid, H.264, WMV, Mpeg4 and Real Video playback,

Our expert says: "The i8910 is the best example we've seen of Samsung's TouchWiz interface, nestling nicely on top of the S60 OS. The screen is beyond beautiful, and despite looking huge at 3.7 inches, the video quality on it is phenomenal.

"In terms of multimedia capability, it destroys nearly every other option out there (although we've yet to see what Apple is bringing to the table), and has got some pretty good grunt for such a good looking handset."
