[Comparison] Samsung Omnia W I8350 vs Nokia Lumia 710

Windows Phone 7 is now a growing mobile operating system and the phones being launched with this OS are getting quite a good response. Many big companies such as Nokia are partnering with Microsoft to launch Windows Phone devices. Samsung is the top smartphone manufacturer and Nokia is at the third position. Their rivalry is currently the hottest in the smartphone world.

Samsung Omnia W I8350 vs Nokia Lumia 710

Nokia Lumia series is Nokia’s recent series which consists of two phones. Nokia Lumia 800 and 710. While 800 is the flagship one, 710 is a bit less than it. But when it comes to Samsung Omnia W I8350 vs Nokia Lumia 710, the fight will be head to toe. This phones have a lot in common and a few things are not common which will decide the fate of this comparison. Let us know which is the better Windows Phone between these two.

Form Factor

Samsung Omnia W I8350 – 115.6 x 58.8 x 10.9 mm dimensions. 115.3 grams weight.
Nokia Lumia 710 – 119 x 62.4 x 12.5 mm dimensions. 125.5 grams weight.

Well, Nokia Lumia 710 has higher dimensions but the weight is a bit more as well. There is not much competition in this category so we would just draw it.

Result – Draw

Processor

Samsung Omnia W I8350 – 1.4 Ghz Scorpion Processor
Nokia Lumia 710 – 1.4 Ghz Scorpion Processor

Same processors, same chipset and GPU were in both of these phones. Same things, sadly, cannot be compared and that is the reason because of which I have to call this one-off as a draw.

Result – Draw

Display

Samsung Omnia W I8350 – Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 3.7 inches, 480 x 800 pixels.
Nokia Lumia 710 – TFT Capacitive touchscreen, 3.7 inches, 480 x 800 pixels.

So, the first difference between these two phones comes in this round. The difference is between Super AMOLED screen and TFT screen. After doing much research on the topic: Super AMOLED vs TFT, the result was that Super AMOLED screen is better. Samsung Omnia W I8350 comes with it and thanks to it, Omnia W takes the round.

Result – Samsung Omnia W I8350 wins

Camera

Samsung Omnia W I8350 – 5 megapixels rear camera, 720p video recording, VGA secondary front facing camera.
Nokia Lumia 710 – 5 megapixels rear camera, 720p video recording, no secondary camera.

Well, if you will see the above specs in this round, everything is same except the secondary camera which is one thing which is putting Nokia in some trouble not only in this round but in the smartphone wars. They need to bring secondary cameras in their latest phones and of course flagship ones. Else, it would be disappointing.

Result – Samsung Omnia W I8350

Operating System

Samsung Omnia W I8350 – Windows Phone 7.5(Mango)
Nokia Lumia 710 – Windows Phone 7.5(Mango)

Actually, counting this round in this comparison is useless because it was pointed out in the beginning only that both the phones have same OSes but we cannot change the tradition of comparison. Either way, this round ends in draw.

Result – Draw

Connectivity

Samsung Omnia W I8350 – GPRS, EDGE, 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v2.1 and microUSB v2.0
Nokia Lumia 710 –  GPRS, EDGE, 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v2.1 and microUSB v2.0

When I see no difference between the phones I compare, I get really disappointed. I have already been disappointed a few times in this comparison and now I am disappointed again. The connectivity features are same which will lead to the same result as the above one.

Result – Draw

Memory

Samsung Omnia W I8350 – 8 GB internal storage, 512 MB RAM, no card slot.
Nokia Lumia 710 – 8 GB internal storage, 512 MB RAM, no card slot.

Again! Now, I am thinking why did I even choose these two phones for comparison. They are so kind of same. The memory round does not bring any huge change in this comparison and will conclude as another draw.

Result – Draw

Battery

Samsung Omnia W I8350 – 1500 mAh Li-Ion battery.
Nokia Lumia 710 – 1300 mAh Li-Ion battery.

Well, well, well! Finally we are seeing a difference between these two devices. And the difference favors Samsung Omnia W I8350 yet again. Battery is really an important factor and I really felt that Nokia Lumia 710 would win here but Omnia takes the round.

Result – Samsung Omnia W I8350

Price

Samsung Omnia W I8350 – Rs. 19,990 or $630
Nokia Lumia 710 – Rs. 18,999. N/A for USD

Price matters very hugely. Nokia Lumia 710 has 1K less cost than Samsung Omnia W I8350 and it shows in the specifications. In Rs. 19,990, Omnia W is the best deal but Nokia Lumia 710 at just 1K less offers some great worth for your money. Eventually, it depends on your budget.

Result – Depends

Comments

  1. All that is well. The only problem with the Omnia W is that u can send messages with 3G on. Seems to be a rather huge drawback.

  2. Write a review when you have actually used the phone. Everybody can compare the specs.
    You didn’t mention things like Nokia apps, or more details like Nokia display’s performance, etc.
    Verdict- Not a very helpful review
