Samsung is best known for its high-end Galaxy range of smartphones, but the Korean manufacturer produces phones for all types of buyers. Whether it's an entry-level pre-paid phone or a top end Android or a Windows Phone, Samsung caters for nearly all mobile users.
Samsung Galaxy range
Samsung phones that run Google's Android operating system are known as the Galaxy line of smartphones. The Galaxy range first came about back in 2009 with Samsung's first Android phone, the Galaxy Icon.
The current flagship Samsung Galaxy smartphone is the Galaxy S II, which features a dual-core processor, a 4.3in super AMOLED display and an 8-megapixel camera. The Galaxy S II is widely considered one of the best Android phones on the market by experts around the world. It will soon be replaced by the Galaxy S III, which is expected to be one of the best selling Android phones in the world.
The Samsung Galaxy range also consists of many low to mid-range phones that suit more budget conscious buyers. These phones offer all the regular features and functions of more expensive Android smartphones, but usually make cuts in areas like the quality of the display, the design and the camera.
Samsung Omnia range
Samsung's Omnia range of smartphones consists of devices that run the Windows Phone 7 operating system. The Windows Phone 7 platform was redesigned from the ground up by Microsoft in 2010, as an advancement to its clunky predecessor, Windows Mobile 6.5.
The current Samsung Omnia smartphone on the market is the Omnia W.
