About Samsung Omnia Icon 8GB (3G)

The Samsung Omnia Icon smartphone is the follow-up effort to the original Samsung Omnia i900, which came out back in 2008. Overseas, it’s called the Samsung Omnia i8000, or Samsung Omnia II, but all you need to know is that in Australia the Omnia Icon is the next step forward in Samsung’s assault on the smartphone market. With improvements like a huge AMOLED touch screen, five-megapixel camera and upgrades to the Samsung TouchWIZ interface, the Icon takes the Omnia name to the next level.

This is a very good-looking mobile phone. It has a glossy black body that is streamlined with curved corners, has special over-sized brushed answer and end call buttons, plus a mirrored cube button to make it extra stylish. However, it is made of plastic, which not everyone will be pleased about. The left side of the handset has volume controls, while the right side houses lock, back and camera buttons. The phone is larger than its predecessor, and this isn’t a drawback, but you will probably spend some time wiping smudges and fingerprints off of the screen and case.
