sexual chocolate. , 29 Sep 2008this looks set to be a great phone. great features, great look. only problem is it is a samsun... morer u mad? do u buy trademarks or products? do u get something like money from S/E to say such things? This fone is a killer not because it is a samsung but it's really good product...So keep ur mouth shut and wait until your S/E release a near perfect fone...may b in 10 yrs time....
Just picked this model up at the Samsung showroom here in Singapore. Its indeed more than meets the eye. I think the million dollar question is how does this compare to N96?
To be honest, both models have its pros and cons. Let's start with the i8510 (innov8),
> Solid Built with push up slider (less control than n96)
> Camera and features of 8MP is excellent
> Sound playback via stereo speakers are crisp and loud
> Menu effects and GUI similar to Omnia
> S60 interface well implemented and fast
> Battery is not long lasting - need to daily charge
> Paint job looks cheap and may peel off
> No future firmware updates via web at least till now with their other s60 devices(unlike Nokia and SonyEricsson)
> No pushmail software and no mention of this feature on this phone ... have to download third party sw
The N96 has certainly got its share of the game as well. The main two advantages over innov8 is the LiveTV function and dedicated music controls via 2-way slider. It does lose out in camera quality and sound output. However when placed over headsets, they both produce similar quality. Of course the other advantage is Nokia provides free push mail sw and free firmware upgrades over the web which does help to optimize phone efficiency, battery performance and provide critical updates. This can be clearly seen from the orig N95 which has improved so much in performance and battery life due to firmware updates.
It basically boils down to personal choice, pricing (which has a good deal with the operator), after sales support. Either go with a reliable manufacturer who has years of experience in Symbian or go with one that provides the jazz and whistles of entertainment. I'd let you make that choice.
GT-i8510, 30 Sep 2008Have use this phone, is the same as other samsung phone Like i450, i550W, G810. The function b... moreThe GPS does not need a huge amount of data. You need to connect for no more than a second or 2 every 7 days to download the satellite location information. The amount you download is very small and wouldn't cost very much at all.
GPS software is a bit tricky because of incompatibility issues. One that does work is CoPilot 7. It's excellent with all the sat nav functions you'd expect and it DOES NOT require a network connection at any time.
Push mail is available on this model since it also runs on S60 similar to Nokia. Only drawback, Samsung does not have a Push Mail SW for their S60 models similar to Nokia and SonyEricsson which have their proprietary MFE (Mail for Exchange) s/w. U need to buy this off a third party. Its available on www.dataviz.com and i think it costs about US$40 for a license.
With Nokia & SE, they are free and can be downloaded from their website. Hope this helps!
Had this phone for a few days now and it's awesome. Much faster than the N95, don't know if the N96 will also be faster. Camera, video and divx playback are simply amazing. Music player is better than N81's and PC connectivity is better than Nokias in general. Only downside is the 1000mAh battery I got with the 8GB version. You'll probably want to charge it at least every other day.
My rating 9.5/10 (would be 10/10 with a better battery)
I hope Samsung will formally announce the highly anticipated handsets this coming October.
Samsung MASTURB8 - an 8 megapixel phone with DVB-H capability and 32GB built-in memory.
Samsung EJACUL8 - also an 8 megapixel camera phone with built-in 16GB memory and GPS capability.
Oh, how I wish these phones will be released soon.
Can anyone teach me how to do push mail? should i look for service providers or back to samsung for this model. please advise thanks
Have use this phone, is the same as other samsung phone Like i450, i550W, G810. The function basically the same. In terms of specis and function, this phone actually comes with Im, In built GPS, goggle map and Fring. But all these function either have to use GPRS of Wifi. Some of the functions like watch CNN, Fring, Navigation, XDM and remote drives. all got do to service providers. another good things about this model, there is digital photo frame function and DLNA ( digital Living Network alliance. ) For DLNA, it enables you to share media contents between audio and video devices in your home by using wireless network connection. In order to use, of course you need the DLNA compliant electronics like settop box or TV.
For battery wise, it can last for 3-5 day with low usage and for heavy most probably 2.5 days at most.
Das Vega, 27 Sep 2008If you believe more in SE, why SE it is number 5 and Samsung it is number 2, I dislike SE, and... moreSee the SE C905, and you might think twice compared to this phone, both has great specs.lol.
