Samsung Innov8 i8510 eight-megapixel cameraphone
Samsung's best smartphone yet
Review It may be the first eight-megapixel cameraphone to hit the UK, but Samsung’s i8510 does more than simply take nice snaps. Much, much more.
The i8510 flexes a formidable set of features that out-muscle most other smartphones in its class – and it’s certainly Samsung’s most feature-packed handset to date.
Samsung's i8510: watch out, Nokia N96
Built on the Symbian S60 3.2 platform, the i8510’s look isn't a million miles away from Nokia’s popular N95 8GB – albeit without that model’s trademark dual-slider mechanism. Under the bonnet too, the i8510 matches many of the key features of the Nokia model, but it also sprinkles a few extra into the mix.
In addition to the class-topping cameraphone, the i8510 is an HSDPA-enabled 3G handset with a download speed of up to 7.2Mb/s. It also supports Wi-Fi, has A-GPS satnav technology built in and is available in two versions with 8GB and 16GB of internal storage. This can be expanded even further 4-16GB Micro SDHC cards.
It has a full deck of multimedia software on board, though there are no dedicated music controls. Still, it gets a big tick for having a 3.5mm earphone socket, allowing you to add your earwear of choice.
As you rifle through the phone’s menu system, you come across plenty of pleasing features and software pre-loaded. There’s a sophisticated repertoire of applications, tapping into a wide variety of interests.
£465 PLUS a contract for the 8gb version??? And people bleated on about the cost of the iPhone!!
Can't see Sony or Apple looking very worried with it selling at that price.
Well, OK, I'll wait to be corrected. Every other Samsung phone I've owned, as well as the iPhone, doesn't let you set a custom message alert... and I mean doing it out of the box, not having to jailbreak it or the equivalent, whereas Nokia and Sony Ericsson (in my experience) have allowed it for as many phones as I've had from them...
if you want proper details...
maybe you should look at a dedicated phone review site???
