Using this particular cell phone means you will almost never have to face the standard and rather unhandy WM interface plus the properly optimized software is a guarantee that you will enjoy your handset all the time.

The Omnia Lite doesn't have the traditional look of a smart phone. It's not quite as wide as most of the Windows Mobile and Android devices we've seen recently. Its narrower profile helps it feel more comfortable in your hand than some of Samsung's other smart phones, such as the rather chunky Galaxy Portal.

Unobtrusive design, snappy interface but bad in-call quality

from PhoneArena

We don’t want to harp on the same string, but we must say the Samsung OmniaLITE B7300 is an extremely snappy Windows Mobile 6.5 phone. We didn’t evidence lagging and scrolled throughout menus fast and without any troubles. The manufacturer has done a great job indeed.

This seems to come at the expense of in-call quality and the OmniaLITE is mediocre in this respect. On the overall, the sound is acceptably loud on both ends and we would say it´s a bit duller than we would have liked. The quality, however, is rather low with voices sounding sharp and surreal at both ends of the line. It´s a cold comfort, but your callers will be able to enjoy slightly better overall call quality than you....
