    Default Opinions Wanted: Would I be getting much of an upgrade?

    I am thinking quite seriously about moving to a Samsung Omnia HD from my 5800.

    What would be the main benefits or pitfalls of doing this?

    My thoughts:

    Benefits
    Larger screen
    Capacitive screen
    Better Camera (in theory)
    more modern looking
    Widgetised S60 user interface - familiar but also different and more customisable

    potential pitfalls
    Cost
    No access to Ovi store (not a biggie for me)
    No local support as not available through official channels


    What are your thoughts? Worth the money? Waste of time?

    It is worth if the price difference is not too big.
    It depends on what do you think is more important.
    For example, if you can't miss the free Maps navigation, then you should stay with Nokia.
    On the other hand, if you need you phone to run more smoothly, and you like to watch videos, then Omnia HD is a win.

    Again, look carefully to the price difference.

    See that's one of the things I struggle with: Yes the 5800 is a great music device, but the reviews and blurb on the net say the Omnia HD has virtual 5.1 and a great sound engine etc etc.

    Also - the price difference is a big one - I'd blow about $NZ400 on the deal, after selling the 5800, so it's a fair whack.

    I guess I am just bored with the same old phone - plus I love Capacitive screens. And LARGE screens.

    The free Navigation is a killer though. I might stick with what I have. For now.
