Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I wish I was being paid by Samsung. Ever heard of Google? all the information I posted, I simply searched on google. Aside from the info I gave on going into a store and checking the product out. You dont need to be a rocket scientist or work a for the company to figure out the release date of a popular phone.
can i know about this phone's battery? i read some comments. and some of them say this phone's battery can only last for 1 day. is it true?
What abou the Flash? Please answer cause i'm realy interested in this phone.
worst battery ever!! even worse then Nokia!!
I prefer the vision of n96, but still like this one too...
can't find big differences b/n cameras (as users quality)...
I got a chance to play with the Samsung i8510 innov8 today at the Capital Shopping Center In Tehran, Iran at the Samsung booth and I have to say I was very impressed. The handset was thinner than I expected. The built quality was superb and the response time for the menues was faster than the Nokia N95. The camera quality was on par with my Canon snapshot 7.1mp digicam. I didn't get a chance to shoot video with it, but from the sample shots I saw on Youtube it looks perfect. It will officially be released in Iran in a couple of weeks for the price of 800,000 Toman (813 USD) for the 16gb version.
wayne stotton, 12 Sep 2008Hi I have had this phone for about 10 days now and overall it is what I expected, However the ... moreI agree, the battery is cr#p!!!! I have to charge it VERY DAY!! and sometime more!!! although the usb charger/link cable does come in handy for that. Apart from that excellent phone.
Still have issue with 'flashing envelope' on top right. been onto CPW Data Support and even they are stumped. in the end they suggested various things like - take sim out and put it in again!!! or even more funny - take it to a CPW SHOP and they will be able to sort it, yeah right - have you seen their staff!!
Anyone any suggestions???
anyone having trouble when dual network is selected? i cannot make calls when in gsm network alone.
can anybody tell me how fast is the shutter speed of this monster? Where's gsmarena full review of this phone? It's taking realli long
i am impressed with samsung's new phones like the omnia & i8510. The guys at nokia must be scratching their heads right now. But there is no clear winner between the n96 & i8510. You might want 8mp camera. Your friend might want tv. Just buy the one that you like most. I have 2 questions. Can you use the optical mouse in the menu? & can you apply your own pictures as album art?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970IF your in the UK go to the CarPhoneWarehouse website and purchase it with contract. If your in the middle east you can buy it from all Axiom Telecom Retailers. If your in the US your tough out of luck. None of the providers like T-mobile & AT&T bring high profile phones. You can try Ebay.
the best mobile phone on the market !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
hey,can anyone tell me , does the sound quality is as good as nokia n95? and how long does the battery life last?
Fantastic phone! Beats playing the sax thing! I'm waiting still to see how SE next phone will fare vs this one. Then, I'll sure make that one call I need to make. And no, I didn't have... What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!!! I love America!!!
dont compare samsung i8510 innov8 with n96. theyre of different class. samsung innov8 is an all- rounder focusing on camera & music. nokia n96 is also an all- rounder focusing on video & live tv. samsung innov8 has an 8mp camera that gives the best image quality among all camera phones today. it also has the best sound quality among all music phones. while n96's camera is a downgrade from n95's camera. n95 has a focal length of 5.7, n96 has a focal length of only 5.2. and n96's camera has a smaller lens than n95 so it gives worse image quality than n95.
Hi I have had this phone for about 10 days now and overall it is what I expected, However the btery life is to be blunt rubbish. If you are lucky it will last 24 hours on standby not the 300 hours it is supposed to. I perhaps wouldn't mind if yo could buy spares for it but, no, and samsung ase behind on there website to look for solutions. I have read the Sony Erikkson is supposed to be an equal if not better. I am no expert but I would rethink before buying, who knows maybee some one will bring out a better battery.
This phone is fantastic thats all i can say! great stuff samsung!
@ dan you can download the 8gb version manuel here
the quick start guide is here
I've been an N95 user for the last 18 months and I just upgraded to this phone because it also uses the Symbian OS. Chose it over the new Nokia N96/N85 based on a few features: USB charge, 8GB, 8MP camera, touch pad, micro SD, button layout and overall look.
First impressions... Looks and feels great. Heavier than N95 but shallower so more pocketable. No faster than N95 but not slower either. All in all I'm happy with the choice.
I don't like that the OS has no Search program on the standby screen as I had in my N95. I also will miss sportstracker (if I can't get it to work) and at the moment handysafe won't sync with my PC.
Also the Samsung PC Studio is behind Nokia's PC Suite. No synching of bookmarks, no phone updater (yet). Also Samsung UK's site still lists this phone as "coming soon" and there are no links to software/manuals yet. Soem links are there bu go nowhere :-( Come on Samsung!
So if PC integration and the range of Symbian software are important to you, go for a Nokia. If you must have an 8MP camera or just like Samsung, this is a great choice. Even more so if you have never bee spoiled by nokia's great device support.
I suppose it's early days and support/updates might improve in time.
