The Samsung B7610 Omnia Pro is a smart Windows 6.1 phone that is bundled with
many features. To start off with the looks; though the Pro is slightly bulky, it
still manages to look smart. It has a 3.5 inch AMOLED resistive touchscreen with
a slide out QWERTY keypad. Above the screen you’ll find the ambient light
sensor, the proximity sensor and the video-call camera and below the screen are
the call receive, end and menu buttons. The left side has the volume buttons and
the toggle switch between the ‘work’ and the ‘life’ modes; the two homescreens.
The right side has the lock and the camera buttons, with the slot for the stylus
at the top right corner. The top has the micro USB slot and the 3.5mm standard
audio jack. The battery is a1500 mAH Li-ion unit and the micro SD card slot is
hot-swappable, located under the back panel.

The B7610 uses Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz UI that is seamlessly
integrated with the OS and once the device starts operating, we get to see three
home screens on which you can place widgets of your choice. The interface is
intuitive but at times the response is delayed. Both the start button at the top
of the screen and the menu button take you to the menu with four tabs,
Productivity, Multimedia, Internet and Office where you get options for editing
the menu as per your choice. At the bottom of the menu are four other buttons,
‘Others’, ‘Settings’, Task Switcher’ and ‘Edit’ that help you navigate through
or modify the menu options.

The keypad slides out smoothly and is quite elegant. Key travel is good, but
better defined keys would have been welcome. The accelerometer enables the
transition from portrait to landscape pretty quickly. A shortcut on the keypad,
‘the composer’ is another cool feature of the phone. It allows you to go to
messages, e-mails, calendar, note or search directly.

The B7610 has both the Internet Explorer for the mobile as well as the Opera
Mini browsers for web surfing and is Wi-Fi and 3G enabled.  The internal memory
of 1GB is great and is expandable via micro SD card.  The camera is 5MP with a
dual LED flash and auto focus gives a very good output and it can take pictures
upto a resolution of 2560×1920. The camera takes good pictures and allows for a
good deal of options as well.  It takes videos in MP4 format at a resolution of
640×480 at 30fps.

What is interesting is the feature to toggle between the work and life mode,
where the office mode is more organized and for more practical use and has more
sober backgrounds, whereas the leisure mode is more to play around with the
three home screens, with bright wallpapers. Battery life is about a day.

Overall the phone is a good device focused on a sleek and easy UI and giving
the user a good user experience. However, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 comes at
about 20k and is more stylish than the B7610, but it falls back on some
features.
