uh huh.., 31 Aug 2008durability durability..that's the biggest question.yes the nokia is known to be durable..but f... moreabout the sliding issue from what ive seen new samsung phones don't seem have it anymore.for nokia i don't know.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Nokia is not making 8MP phone because they already have the Carl Zeiss optics, only the VINTAGE, nothing less.
What is Samsung camera optics compare to the Vintage Carl Ziess? Ahhh? junk? its like comparing Ferrari to Mazda. no matter how you increase the MP for Samsung, its still has no prestige and class compared to the legendary Carl Zeiss..
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970durability durability..that's the biggest question.yes the nokia is known to be durable..but from what i've observed around me..here practically all use nokia.nokia phones WERE durable.the fact is there new phones are all crappy.i used the D500 it fell many times and right on the camera, i took my shower with it around because i needed the time..and never has the software or anything else started to get wrong the only prob i had with it was the phone to screen link cable.i slided it too much and it damaged.i was disappointed a lot since it was a valuable gift.but then i've seen nokia slider phones have the same issue too, the first slider phones ones a 6111 to be more precise..for new ones i don't know.as i said in a previous post i stated the probs i had with nokia phones if u don't mind, it would be nice to read it. nokia is no longer durable..what is keeping it up is it's reputation.yes people don't buy samsung smart phones why would they buy something they don't know about.samsung marketing has been bad plus also their troubles in stabylising in terms of specs.now finally they are doing it and they make gorgeous models why wouldn't those who like samsung be happy after so long.i don't care about ur stats i already said it.you are trying to help?microsoft was dumb and still all people used it.. big market share wonderful market stats but apple was much much better.now microsoft improved a lot and is graphically nice.market share, stats..is all about advertising and knowing where to sell.the more u sell the more u convince people with advertising and it goes on.
now back to durability many don't stay with the same phone after 2 years most of the time these phones in question reach a terrible state after 2 years. we take it everywhere risks of accidents are very high and we tend to get bored quickly because phones keep on increasing their specs.nearly every year a new important tech is added to phones..like bluetooth appeared out of nowhere, why would someone still keep his infra red phone.the d500 i used, i was fully satisfied and it fell many times.so i don't question samsung's durability anymore when simple phones like the 1100i by nokia are getting mad after less than a year and that phone i treated it well.no scratches on it the screen plastic protection is still like it was brand new but what went wrong?something went wrong inside it(talked about it in a recent post).trust your stats if u want, it's ur right but me i trust experience and observation.
Samsung should not worry because Nokia is not making 8MP phone because they already have the Carl Zeiss optics, only the VINTAGE, nothing less.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970nokia guys can't get over fact that their love has just middle end range out and has not 8mp high end even like a project,a step behind as always nokia been so nokia mass cry and bite at the moment,that's all and i won't be talking about famous nokia bilt ''quality''
Samsung doesn't sell much in SMARTPHONE market.
1. Nokia - 25.30%
2. RIM Blackberry - 13.40%
3. Apple - 5.30%
4. Sharp - 4.10%
5. Fujitsu - 4.10%
Do you know why? Smartphones are use by Smart people, and if your Smart you wont buy Samsung c",
Do little research for those who disagree.
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2008you're Crazy man . Nokia and SE must be go home . Samsung much better than than nokia ... moreI'm not crazy because I'm part of the 99% regular consumers who wants the best value devices. and the remaining 1% are the crazy ones who only thinks about specs all their life and buy Samsung, the most notorious company who idolize Durability Issues in their forte.
the front is awesome
the back is awful!, it looks so cheap but i still like this phone
Ha Ha Ha..... it's real funny reading "these reviews" below.
I was reading from the bottom up on all the crossfires and suddenly Danny came up with the question: no touch screen...???. Ha, ha, ha...
Thanks for the entertainment guys but hey, don't sway too much out of the topic, this is just a phone review site... that's all.

Michael Jones, 31 Aug 2008Any nokia owner of a N82 or N95 knows there 5mp camera is still the king and beats this poor 8... morethe reason the n95 is much lighter than innov8 is because nokia likes to utilise plastic in a way while samsung uses more metal. pros and cons in both ways. depends on how to look at it
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I dont need 8MP because in reality, I dont take snapshot that often, and so is the rest of the regular consumers (99% of the total population) Maybe I'm not part of the weird once (1%), lol!
I dont need DIVX because in reality, I dont take snapshot that often, and so is the rest of the regular consumers (99% of the total population) Maybe I'm not part of the weird once (1%), lol!
I dont buy Samsung because in reality, their product has the worsiest case of Durability Issues. Putting low grade products on their device, a wicked reality Samsung have mastered. Ask Samsung Atuhorize Service Centers, who knows better about this phones than them.
Yes I agree that innov8 has greater specs than N85 but who do you think made a great buzz? N85 thus, because its a total well rounder offered in a most valued price.
Will N85 wreck the sale of innov8, and thus with N96 or C905 or LG.. yes 100% because a mobile phone is not all specs, its all about usability in the most proper manner.
Dont worry Nokia doesn't need 8MP because it has Carl Ziess vintage optics.
mw, 31 Aug 2008u kno y nokia is market leader?because thay don't give and take features on there handsets i h... moreyes that's true.nokia has more experience and have been more stable in phone features.but that's not fully why they are market leader.it all started with the 3310 being sold everywhere especially in developing countries(microsoft trick) like mine plus a more agressive presence in advertising..samsung marketing has been terribly bad so many nice phones gone unoticed like the i300x .for instance we have an exclusively nokia representative here but no samsung or sony ericson only occasional shops and the latest phone they got here is the g800 for samsung and k800 something for sony ericson.
well concerning ur rating of 7/10
first of all that's not the first time they see such a phone..so u can expect that ur folks were open mouthed when they saw the N95 since it was the first of its kind.so obviously the second time they won't be that impressed taking into consideration that the cam did not impress them and they are nokia users.
well let's wait for the full availability of the phones..in the mean time keep your speculations for you..it's very tiring.i don't get on nokia forums dirtying their stuff with speculations and god knows i don't like nokia.why?because of people like you and nokia's terrible designing.. i'm a fan not a fanboy. you just come around and say this phone sucks without saying why plus u excitedly give ur speculations that N96 will take down this phone..if that is not fanboy talking i wonder what this is.our opinions will or will not change when we finally get to use it or when gsm arena tests it fully,if they say if sucks okay then it sucks. someone like you won't change anything and you know it..ur goal is purely bad intentioned
u kno y nokia is market leader?because thay don't give and take features on there handsets i hope this has all the good features of the previous samsung phones,i hope it can zoom downloaded pictures and set them as wallpaper in the zoom mode, u people always talking about the obvious features and not about the simple things that make a phone funn that's y i love the u600 and 8 the g600.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970well if u read the innov8 review ,you are then saying that gsm arena is incompetent.
it's an 8mp camera what did u expect? a v3?
Any nokia owner of a N82 or N95 knows there 5mp camera is still the king and beats this poor 8mp camera and its like 3 kilos who wants to put that in there pocket, my n70 is so much smaller and weights like .3 kilos. A n95 is half the size of this beast too.
Go figure samsung fanboy!
