camera

The Omnia's camera is occasionally very slow to load, which is frustrating, but once it's running it's a decent model. The images from the 5MP sensor are easily discernible as camera phone output - slightly faded colours and a tendency towards lens flare mean the Omnia is a good, rather than great camera.

Media

Anyone with a Windows PC is well-placed to make use of the Omnia 2's media capabilities.

media

It's compatible with a vast range of audio and video codecs, and, the odd complaint about the screen aside, it's a great device for watching things on. DiVX, H.264 and WMV files are some of the video highlights, and its built-in compatibility with Windows - without the need to use a third party application - is hugely appealing. Did we mention that video looks superb on the AMOLED screen?
