A total of 10 handsets were set on display at the British Museum, all with specific expertise in one of the key Samsung categories. Photography, Music, Internet and Business were duly covered, adding a pinch of Armani flair. We first got our hands on the Samsung G800, called - quite audaciously - the Professional Camera by Samsung. The first impression was of a quite ample girth. But leaving the generous size aside, Samsung's best equipped cameraphone to date is really sleek.

Samsung G800 was undoubtedly the star of the night

The metal looks and high build quality really make it stand out among its Samsung siblings, never mind the interface has remained almost unchanged. The camera interface was pepped up a bit, though in the very little time we had with it, we didn't notice significant changes in functionality compared to other Samsung models. The optical zoom is surely to make a difference and the Face Detection Auto Focus really contributes to the digicam-like experience. By the way, we were quite impressed with the way the optical zoom behaved. The zooming mechanism is stunningly smooth and quiet. Finally, as our photos show, the wide dynamic range (WDR) optimization may just turn out to be more than a mere marketing gimmick.
