Samsung i8910 Omnia HD Firmware I8910ZXIG4 tested

Since the latest Italian firmware i8910XXIH1 or whatever it will be has been delayed, I have flash the most recent available firmware which is the generic Hong Kong branded firmware – I8910ZXIG4. This latest firmware has turned out to be a pleasant surprise.  As posted in our i8910 Omnia HD user forum I have tested I8910ZXIG4 and here are my findings:

Things I’ve noticed:

  • We now have letters on the dialer, unlike IG2. But still no quick way of bringing up contacts by keying the number that corresponds with the letter / name.
  • More free ram. Around 170mb free now just after a reset
  • Faster than i8910XXiG2
  • Supports 3 Chinese languages and English only. Will boot up in Chinese but you just change it to English.
  • Browser stop bug fixed. (That was also fixed in G3 I think!)
  • The S60 web browser, is faster and more responsive to touch. Must be a newer/better build Vs IG2.
  • Wifi works well. Even with low signal I can connect.
  • A few megabytes more of free C drive (36mb aprox phone memory)
  • 720p video is smoother. Other users have reported this too.
  • Improved battery life over
    the Italian
    IG2
  • GPS lock is the same as IG2 – Very fast and I can get full strength GPS signal even indoors.

Negatives of this

firmware:

  • No games installed. I guess they had no Chinese versions. No biggie for me as the games were just trials anyway.

So if your impatient like I am and can’t wait for further delayes to the newest Italian IH* firmware. I suggest users give this firmware a go!
