Kirsty, Northampton

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
1) the way it looks
2) easy navigation to main menu
3) good camera
4) screen response to touch
5) i have a blackberry as a work phone and even with the below listed bad points the omnia trashes the blackberry especially with aesthetic qualitys
Bad points:
1) how to use guide (booklet and disk) were useless, i've had to find out most things for myself e.g. how to use torch, i still have no idea how to synch my phone with the computer and add music files etc.
2) alot of files/ applications that again have no explanation as to what they are and so the phone is not used to full potential or if i accidently tap them it scares me that iv messed the phone up.
