The new smartphone received, overall, a warm welcome from reviewers. So, for instance a commentator at PhoneArena said that “this is one of the most exciting cell phones as of now. The Samsung´s monster, the OMNIA HD i8910. We have to admit that despite its size, it is one hell of an all-in-one, smart device. Aside from being the first cell phone capable of capturing and playback of nice quality HD video content, its 8-megapixel camera takes pictures with very good quality. The OMNIA HD sports an awesome 3.7-inch touch sensitive AMOLED screen and battery that lasts long”.
At the same time the reviewer noted that the i8910 HD also has a few drawbacks pointing to the mediocre sound quality during talks.
Another commentator at Gizmodo concluded that “the Omnia HD does everything fine and a few things extremely well. Video playback is top notch and widely compatible, the camera is among the best I’ve ever seen on a cellphone, and the video recording can actually hang with a lot of pocket cams, like the Flip or Kodak Zi series. On all other counts the phone never falls flat, but it never really shines, either”.
