yes it is true that some features lack in onmin w than lumia 800 but Samsung Omnia W has a front facing camera for video calls which nokia lumia hasn't. Also, for such minor differences paying arount 10k more is definetaly a waste. So, Omnia W wins it all. Go for it.

gabbar (6:06 PM, April 16, 2012)
not much different from Omnia. Did you read the article?
 
Nokia_man (6:05 PM, April 16, 2012)
Better than Lumia 700 - Both are same price. And Lumia 800 does not justify the price difference.

There is no difference in the window OS or in the processing power between these mobiles. Omnia has a better screen. 
So overall your windows experience will be better on Omnia.
