As far as video recording goes, there really isn't anything the Samsung Omnia does better than the iPhone 3G S. The iPhone absolutely kills the Omnia in nearly every performance category (except noise) and it is much easier to work with. The Samsung does offer more control—multiple video resolutions, exposure adjustment, white balance presets—but it lacks the sleek, intuitive design that the iPhone takes for granted. Of course, the Samsung Omnia does have better still image capability than the iPhone, but we're primarily concerned with video quality and performance in this review, and the iPhone wins in that category hands down.
