Samsung Innov8 i8510 eight-megapixel cameraphone

Samsung's best smartphone yet

3 Big data security analytics techniques

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.
