As a result I am going to return my Omnia 7 and get a Desire HD...
On the 21st I upgraded my O2 contract. I loved the feel and responsiveness and build quality of the HD7 but I could see the screen had issues.
Colours were washed out and the screen had dead pixels. I loved the build quality but just didn't feel the screen and rubbish contract were worth
hanging on to.
So off to 3 I went - got my PAC code and got an Omnia 7. I have had the phone for a week now and honestly it has problems.
The screen is amazing - and I love WP7 but the phone just feels cheap to me. The home button is not always responsive and it feels like it is a drop
away from being destroyed. It just doesn't feel like it is worth £550 (the price on the contract reciept).
I would actually happily go back to the HD7 now because despite the screen being a let down everything else is very nice about the phone and just works.
Unfortunately I have now left O2 so that isn't an option.
So I have decided to go and get a Desire HD as I know that feels like it is worth the 2 year contract and I will wait a couple of weeks and I plan on
buying a Dell Venue Pro or failing that the HD7 on payg as I do have another O2 contract.
Let me be clear - I love windows phone 7. It is very good and smooth and looks amazing but I am not happy with the phone I have and the fact is I
can buy a SIM free model shortly in the next couple of weeks and then if worse comes to worse sell the Desire HD which I know has lots of value.
Maybe I am just difficult BUT I believe that the phone should feel quality and work exactly as it is meant to and the Omnia 7 doesn't feel or work as it should.
