Samsung SGH-G800 5Mp cameraphone

G600 + 3G = G800

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The G800 looks to impress musically, too. Its player app can handle MP3, MIDI, ACC, ACC+, eAAC+, WMA and ASF files, and categorises tracks in the usual way. Samsung also trumpets the phone’s internal amplifier, developed by Bang & Olufsen.

All well and good, but by including a decidedly mediocre set of earphones in the box, Samsung certainly doesn’t make the most of this feature. Audio performance through these is average.

Getting tunes to the phone is straightforward. The G800 can be synced with Windows Media Player 11 via USB cable, or you can use Samsung's own PC Studio software. You can also copy files directly to the phone's memory card by setting the phone to mass-storage mode and dropping tracks from your PC.

You can download tracks over the air to the phone too, if your operator offers a compatible music service. Its 3G HDSPA connectivity makes this a quick and painless experience.

When it comes to surfing, the G800's Access NetFront v3.4 web browser isn’t as sophisticated as some of the latest smartphone browsers. By default, it fits pages to the screen's width, and it's a bit hit and miss. Some pages don’t work well like this but complex sites can come out unsatisfyingly mixed up, though you can opt for a more satisfactory quick-loading full-page views. Flash isn’t supported here, however.

The G800 also supports RSS feeds for grabbing regular updates from your favourite websites automatically.
