Hey guys simple question for the guys and girls that have either one, or have tried them.

I just want to buy one of the above today and i want to know which ones better as there is only a couple of dollars in the price between them. 

I know the specs, more interested in the feel and functionality really. Some phones seem very similar but are miles apart if you know what i mean ;)

Thanks

If you had to, I'd go for the Mozart, it's screen is more impressive compared side by side

However, having just picked up a Omnia 7 for my father, the cons are:
- no Micro SD cards(unless you remove the back and void your warranty
- The Trophy and the Mozart are much slower in read/write since they use a standard Micro SD for their main memory
- The Omnia while faster, has some weird custom firmware, and while it's updated once a few weeks ago, now there are reports of it having issues
- There is still no GPS turn-by-turn navigation
- The Office syncing isn't as good as I'd want it to be. Being a microsoft product you'd expect everything to sync into Outlook/One note, but it's a bit trickier than that. The Calendar is the biggest issue

Apart from that:
- The user interface is excellent, I really like it
- Zune marketplace is much better than iTunes(read bloatware)
- Once they have the update issues sorted out, there will likely be frequent updates, not limited to carrier or model of phone


Just bare in mind that these are still the first gen Windows mobile 7 phones and the next gen will probably be slightly better in hardware and software terms

Mozart has 8MP camera with Xenon flash. Trophy is 5MP with LED flash. Camera is better on the Mozart.

Omnia 7 is S-AMOLED screen. I'd personally go with the Omnia 7 as mentioned for reasons above by vinnieg.

Where are you buying it from?

CdTDroiD: So you think the Omnia 7 is better than both? i could get that one


I definitely do, tbh.

The SAMOLED screen is very nice, comparable to my Galaxy S 1(still waiting for my II to arrive next week)

The touch screen on it feels much nicer than the HTC equivalents in the same price bracket too

The flash memory is the most important part, it whizzes through compared to the HTC models!

I'm sure the update issues with the Omnia and Focus(US Omnia) will get fixed in the near future though

I'll try get some pictures up of the omnia 7 next to the Galaxy S today to show you how similar that are


@ Bill Gates, did you end up getting a WinMo 7 phone in the end?

^ Yep imported an AT&T branded Samsung focus at WP7 launch last year. Updates come through fine when approved by AT&T.

I checked the price and Trophy is $455 and Mozart is $485. $30 difference. How did you get the $2 difference?
