Now let us take a quick reviews and comparisons of both these Windows powered phones. In comparison to their looks, both the phones are classy, stylish and modern phones but dimension wise the Omnia has a bigger frame. But the Omnia 7 is lighter despite being bigger than the Optimus 7.
Both the phones have identical screen resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, but the screen type and display size varies. The LG Optimus 7 has a 3.8 inch LCD touch screen that is a standard display. In contrast the Omnia 7 offers a Super AMOLED 4 inch touch screen that offers superb image and video quality and is easier to use under heavy daylight. So the Omni scores in this department.
What lies on the inside is the same for both the phones as they share the same Windows 7 Mobile OS as well as the 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8650 processor with 512 MB RAM and Adreno 200 graphics engine. The storage area is where the Optimus 7 has a clear edge over the Omnia 7. Neither phones have expandable memory slots but the LG Optimus offers 16 GB of internal memory as compared to the 8 GB of the Omnia 7.
The camera and imaging section is also a stalemate as both have 5 Mega Pixel integrated cameras with LED Flash. They both offer Video recording in High Definition 720p format. It is difficult to choose a winner as the specs get revealed one after the other and this might go all the way to a photo finish.
Both the phones have all the connectivity and network technologies like 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 and USB PC sync. But the Optimus has a slight advantage with the DLNA sharing profile of its Bluetooth which allows the phones content to be played on any other compatible device.
Both the phones support playback of a wide variety of audio and video content including MP3, MP4, WMV, WAV, 3GP etc.
So as mentioned earlier the battle for supremacy among these Windows based phones have reached a photo finish. Now comes the final blow to the Omnia 7 and to Samsung as a whole, the Omnia is almost 5K more than the Optimus despite providing identical specs and features. The Omnia 7 is priced at Rs 35000 and the Optimus 7 at Rs 30000. So the winner has to be the LG Optimus 7, but it is a close call.
