So I bought an Omnia II. The first thing I decide to try was the video options right on the day I bought the phone I recorded a video from a concert at a cultural forum. The video and sound quality is simply amazing. And a positive point I must refer that the device was in my hand, not a support and the room was full of people.

After this try out I decide to test the dvix playback on the device. I’m a big fan of “Legend of the Seeker” so I copy the latest episode (s02e16 I think) to the device and started the playback. And it came my first disapointment. Altought the playback is quite smooth, the image quality is unclear at best. The colors are wrong as you can see on below.

on the other hand, I also tested the video playback with an episode of “Queen’s Blade” and the quality is very nice.

So, the point right now is: Does the bad colour quality on “Legend of the Seeker” is due to be a “people” video, or is it the codec? My guess goes for the first because I also tried the playback with “Stargate: Universe” and “Star Trek: Voyager” with the same lousy results in therms of colour.

Bottom line: It’s a good option to see movies and videos because I don’t have to convert them to mp4, like I have to do to see the videos on my android or my psp 1000; but if I have the time to convert the videos, I’ll definitely go for the android or psp option.

p.s. the pictures where taken from my android, and as far as I can tell, the p0int I want to make, about the colour, is quite explicit.
