In the end if you’re someone who really likes Microsoft Smartphone/Windows Mobile Personal, Maybe you have a HTC Maple/Snap, HTC S620, Motorola Q9h, Samsung Jack, etc and don’t really want to switch platforms give the Samsung Messenger a shot. The bigger screen alone makes it worth the upgrade. That said that that doesn’t describe you then you’re probably better of trying something else.

Quite a nippy and responsive device

from PhoneArena

The Samsung OmniaPRO B7330 seems generally quite a nippy and responsive device, but was constantly dogged with what we presume are Windows Mobile related hang-ups with the device freezing for seconds at a time. Indeed, it’s really a tale of two halves; bar a few caveats, we have a strong piece of hardware; well laid out, attractive and modern, however, the software is often confusing, plain and old fashioned...

The Samsung OmniaPRO B7330 seems generally quite a nippy and responsive device, but was constantly dogged with what we presume are Windows Mobile related hang-ups with the device freezing for seconds at a time. Indeed, it’s really a tale of two halves; bar a few caveats, we have a strong piece of hardware; well laid out, attractive and modern, however, the software is often confusing, plain and old fashioned.

Ultimately, any positive feelings we have for this phone are spoilt by the knowledge that it could have been so much more. Targeted at the business professional, the Samsung OmniaPRO B7330 has to rate as a strong contender but the BlackBerry 8520 or Nokia E72 serve just as well? Staying closer to home does the OmniaPRO B7330 do enough to differentiate itself against other WinMo devices? In our opinion it matches, but is not significantly better than devices like the HTC Snap or the Palm Treo Pro.

Ultimately, it seems the BlackBerry 8520 offers a stronger keyboard and the Nokia E72 has a far better build quality. Even lower end phones, such as the significantly cheaper E63, give the Samsung OmniaPRO B7330 a run for its money. At the time of this review the Nokia E71 is offering everything the OmniaPRO B7330 does and at around a $100 cheaper price point. Given the state of the economy that must be a more enticing proposition.
