I've had this handset on o2 for 5 wks now (16gb version). Have to say that overall i'm pleased with it. Excellent upgrade from my old N95. I have just a couple of gripes with it.
1) If you miss a call/message, once the phone goes in to power save you don't know if you've missed anything until you next press a button on the phone unlike Nokia's which still show missed calls etc in the background in powersave mode.
2) Bluetooth seems to be a bit hit and miss with certain devices.
Still, if you're looking for a new handset with all the latest features then this is top of the list.
Have to say SE C905 looks good if you're not bothered about symbian.
great phone, but the battery life is not very good if you use the internet alot.. Think its the same with all phones though. Still recommend it over the n96 definitely . :-)
I have my samsung innov 8 about 2 weeks now. It is a solid phone and is quite easy to move around the various menus of the phone. The camara is great and you can get some good video shots too. On the down side I cannot seem to get over the poor battery life. If you browse the internet and use the phone a couple times during the day, the battery will get drained and drained hard beyond the half way point. I cannot understand why a phone with so many great features will have an inferior battery like this one.
jaz get this fone... coz n96 is just the upgrade of N95... no special features added and performance added, and nokia made n96 jaz for additional money and problem is they made people confuse what fone shoule they buy... Unlike this fone... performance and features are awesome... Also this fone is voted as "camera fone of the year"... there are other fones you would like to consider like SEC905 same 8mp, SEW902, and Xperia... Also HTC and the Blackberry Storm is great if u really like smartphones... Well forme this fone is the best and all that i can say "two thumbs up"... i had this fone and it really cool and great...
...okay.,FINALY Someone Had To BREAK THAT NOKIA RATINGs Menance here..,Go for innovate if u need a finished PRODUCT...if you into alot of BUGS and alot of UPDATES then the N96 is for you...
does it has a weak battrey as they said ?! am willing to buy it if not !
Thanks everyone, im ordering my INNOV8 now
should have it sometime next week!!
i'll let you know how it goes!
seems that this is the complete package for a HihgTech mobile phone nowadays... not to mention bout the cool design with touch-screen. However, I personally found it a little slow and it is not user-friendly at all, which is the 'down side' of it...
Oh! by the way, the 8 MP camera is damn cool!
Who needs a digital camera now? :P
One Question Samsung Lovers. What OS is this phone running on?
Symbian? mmm(nokia owns)
So in reality how much Samsung do you get?
0.o weird isnt
I was in a hurry to get rid of my HTC Diamond due to it's poor battery performance. My innov8 barely makes it through the day!!!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I have INNOV8 for 2 days .
i love it . so better than N96 . the best smartphone in the market .
I installed a lot of applications but how come cannot see the application directory? Do anybody know how to access the application directory in phone memory or mass storage?
If you want the best phone on the market, get this one. innov8 or n85 or n96??? hmmmm there is just no competition. Go away Nokia until you come up with something worthy of challenging this monster!
this is where shouji got it from
he copied the whole stuff he posted XD
Test for the best camera-equipped smartphones in the world-which one comes out on top from a photographic point of view.
The shots were chosen to exercise the cameras capabilities as far as possible, including optical zoom or Xenon Flash if needed.
The result are :
1. Samsung GT-i8510 INNOV8 = 7,6 pts
2. Nokia N95 = 7,1 pts
3. Nokia N82 = 6,9 pts
4. Samsung SGH-G810 = 6 pts
5. Nokia N93 = 5,9 pts
There's a clear winner, the brand new Samsung GT-i8510, with the win especially significant since it too wasn't running on the very latest firmware and the quality of it's photos is only going up and not down, in the future.
The Samsung INNOV8 turns all that advice on its head slightly, but simply being terrific. The optics used are good enough, the flash good enough, and when added to a great sensor that works well in dim conditions and which produces genuinely decent results at 8 megapixels, all make for a camera that lives up to its marketing billings by being a true headline feature.
