14 Reasons why Samsung Omnia W is way ahead of Samsung Focus.

Samsung has developed many phones and is one of the leaders in the business. Though Samsung has tasted more success with Android and its propriety platforms like Bada, SGP & MMP, it has also produced some very nice Smartphones based on Microsoft's OS - The Windows Phone.

Samsung Focus, Samsung Focus S, Samsung Focus Flash and Samsung OmniaW to name a few.I bought Samsung Omnia W just yesterday and today I will be comparing it to the earlier launched Samsung Focus.

People usually do not have any idea about judging a mobile. The irony is most of them think they do! The only thing they can compare are the hardware specs (read as RAM, ROM, processor speed and internal memory) made available by websites. However, that is just the surface.Comparison of mobiles goes way deeper than that.


Samsung Omnia W.

Carrying on, here are the points where Samsung Omnia W outsmarts Samsung Focus.

1. Coming to the main part - the heart and soul of mobile - its the chipset. Samsung Omnia W has Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon while the Samsung Focus has Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon chipset. .

2. Samsung Omnia W has a 1.4 Gz CPU while Samsung Focus has 1Gz CPU.

3. Samsung Omnia W has a Adreno 205 GPU and Samsung Focus has Adreno 200 GPU.

4. Samsung Omnia W has a secondary camera which is very useful and necessary for Video calling. Without it 3G is often a waste. Samsung Focus doesn't have a secondary camera.You can check the FAQs by Samsung.

5. Samsung Omnia W supports HSDPA, 14.4 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps while Samsung Focus supports HSDPA, 7.2 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps - which is the difference in 3G download speeds. This is a massive factor people usually neglect.

6. Samsung Omnia W has a smaller screen  but has larger pixel density which actually makes its display much better. Its the picture density that is more important at the corporate level.
Samsung Omnia W - 480 x 800 pixels, 3.7 inches (~252 ppi pixel density)
Samsung Focus - 480 x 800 pixels, 4.0 inches (~233 ppi pixel density)

7. Samsung Omnia W is capable of recording videos with 720p@30fps while Focus flash captures at 720p@25fps.


8. Though the Samsung FAQ mention otherwise, many people doubt that there is a Corning Gorilla Glass in Samsung Focus. You can check here and here. Samsung Omnia W has Corning Gorilla glass.

9. Samsung Omnia W has a WiFi hotspot (it can be used as a router). I am not sure about Samsung Focus though. I think its not present.

10. Both - Samsung Omnia W  and Samsung Focus has Standard battery, Li-Ion 1500 mAh. However, due to its improved chipset and tailor made latest OS from Microsoft, Omnia has 370 hrs stand by and 7hrs talk-time while Samsung Focus has 300 hrs standby and 6.5 hours talk time.

11. Samsung Omnia W weighs only 115.3 g compared to Samsung Focus weighs 119.4g. There may not seem much of a difference, but its considered critically in the tech-world and also from business perspective.

12. Samsung Focus was released in 2010, November followed but its improved versions like Focus S and Focus Flash. Samsung Omnia W was released in 2011, October.

What customers are usually unaware of is the fact that in Software development lifecycle, any new product in usually ( 90% times) much more stable. This is because programmers and hardware engineers have already fixed the bugs that were found in previous models, and if required, have even replaced large amount of codes and hardware in the chipset.

13. Last but not the least, any Smartphone works the best with its own OS, because the architecture of the phone is designed keeping the OS in mind. It can never match up by updated OS, unless the company has released a newer version which costs less and is inferior to the previous version.

14.By using any comparativity tool, you can see that Omnia W has better Image Quality, Audio Call quality etc.

There are other things though, a few far more important than the ones mentioned above. They relate to patented technologies, which {being a Samsung employee} I am not at the liberty to discuss.

So it is my request that you should have an open mind, and should not compare just the Hardware specifications. It is foolish to assume that you know everything. {which obviously applies to me too ;) }
