For those who say this is a COPYCAT of N95, I would say this is how the N95 Successor should be, rather than the N96.
Ironic but True.
N96 doesnt bring much 'upgrade' to the original N96 except for DVB-H and 16GB and still same camera. Just like N95-8GB bring more disk space but the handset index number doesnt increase.
So, N96 should be N95-16GB instead. And this INNOV8 is the true successor of N95-8GB.
I dont prefer Samsung or Nokia, I just like Symbian =)
Just my 1 cent :P
I like to see Nokia's fanboy fanatics get intimidated when they smell competition. They always resort to their short bias favoritisms to justify their opinions of opposing products. In contrary to ones belief, Samsung is ahead of Nokia and other manufactures in terms of implementing features into cellular devices. For example, (not to exclude the Sony-Ericsson C905) Samsung has a visible 8 megapixel cellular device among us in the innov8, however Nokia doesn't even have an announced phone in their portfolio that can compare in terms of pixel count. Fanboys just sit there in abyss, and hope that Nokia reveals this magical 8 megapixel phone that is justifiable to even stand next to the innov8. To further prove Samsung cellular capabilities, I want EVERYONE to look up the Samsung SCH-B600. It is a 10 megapixel camera phone with an optical zoom that was announced 2yrs ago in 2006. So in theory, the innov8 is actually downgraded in terms of pixel count.
Despite what may seem biases towards Nokia I am a fan, Im just not a fanatic.
Cheers to my Phone Freaks,
samsungs really showing nokia up this year as the n96 was announced in febuary an still not available yet,they were trailing samsung with the touchscreen mobiles so were more concerned about releasing there mobile as quick as they could so the n96 will be a waste of alot of time an money from nokia as the i8510 will be out selling the n96 very easily an nokia won"t have there 8 mega-pixel camera mobile ready about xmas time so the i8510 will be out selling nokia this time
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970noky is poor quality manufacter and noky guys can't get over THE KING samsung innov8 cos nokia has no good phone at the moment,just cheapy soft plastic scraps,good on paper but uselees in real life
Found these comparison shots between i8510 vs n82 cameras. Seems like Samsung did well under very bright settings, but failed miserably in a few indoor and other shots. Curious to see a c905 vs n82/i8510 shot comparison.
Kal, 08 Aug 2008Seems you know how to keep your sysmbian running properly and care less about how to handle yo... moregood choice of words 'probably'...........i love my baby's and i knw how 2 use them 2 there full potentential......especialy symbian....thy never freez nor hang up.......and dnt be ignorent....evry body drops there phone tym 2 tym......
I`ve been reading your comments for quite some time now and i`ve noticed some very disturbing things such as :
1) Nokia fan-boys do not know how to take a hit .I bet none of them has more then 13-14 years .Nevermind flamers just keep on waiting for your 8 mpx cam from Nokia . It should be arriving next Christmas or this Christmas or how knows ?and how cares ? so can i get a JINGLE Bells from ya :))
2) Sony-Ericsson fan-boys are much more peaceful .Maybe because SE already has an 8 MpX in his portfolio .But that doesn`t stop them from acknowledging that INNOV8 is a good phone .
3) Samsung fans just like to brag with the INNOV8 . And why shouldn`t they ? It`s pure perfection . And the cam OMG it takes wonderful pictures and high quality videos .
4) Moto fan-boys . Well haven`t seen any :))
Sorry 4 the long post .Cheers
yes lenses matter.,bt lg hav kruizer shneider bt still they wont compete..,motorola hav kodak bt stil the i8510 beats them..,go to WWW.MOBILE-REVIEWS.COM and see the i8510 compete aganist a 7.2MPX CANON DIGITAL CAMERA WITH CARL ZEISS LENSES!!!
Kenzo , 08 Aug 2008Dude cn u read coz clearly u cnt....i didn say Nokia is #1 coz of there symbian phones.......i... moreyes thats true.,panasonic had the best tfts and in 2005 they already had 16M TFTs...sharp too to play vdz at VGA but i dnt knw what happened to them..,samsung is emulating and combinin the best of the best to produce the best...
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970You really dont have an idea of how much the lens matters in taking picture eh? Well i can briefly tell you that Carl Zeiss Lens is one of the best lens that exists and how come Sony's Cameras have it but not Sony Ericsson? Because SE sucks thanks
Anonymous, 09 Aug 2008just crying noky guys in nokia funeral!that's all,THE KING was born,bravo samsung!Nope as ive said this is just a IMITATION of Nokia N95's 8GB look at the design and the spec beside the 16GB and the 8MP nothing is different and beside Nokia's n95 8GB has DUAL SLIDE DESIGN which makes it the best phone

useless phone. No qwerty, no touchscreen. Another Nokia-like brick with key elements missing.
2 gud cell.....jus waitin it to come in d market...better than all pahone that r till now there...
Anonymous, 09 Aug 2008You might rather say that 8MP is something really nice but i can tell you that my 10MP camera ... moreI love to see these nokials fanaticp fanboys get scared when they smell competition. They always come up with there short bias antics to justify a point that has no real sense of a counter-argument. They are just just mad that nokia's own flagship, the n96, is outdated when it was announced, in comparison to the samsung innov8. In contrary to ones belief, Samsung is light years ahead of nokia and any other manufacture in terms of specifications in cellular devices. For example, they have a fully functional cellular device with an 8 megapixel camera and nokia don't even have one announced. Nokia's fanatic fanboys just sit there in their corners in abyss and hope that nokia reveals a phone with a 8 megapixel camera that gives a real sense of justification to compare it to the samsung innov8 (But they don't). And to prove samsung has Samsung has the technical capabilities to compete with any manufacture, I want everyone to check out the Samsung SCH-B600. This is a 10 megapixel amerphone with an optical zoom that was manufactured 2 years ago in 2006. So in theory the 8 megapixel camera is actually a downgrade in terms of of pixel count. So for all u nokia fanboy fanatics, suck it up.
Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of nokia, but I am no fanatic.
All of you wanting to see the photo Quality from the i8510 go onto www.mobile-review.com they have a very good review checking this handset out with a normal 7.2 digital camera an the images looks very good indeed,they always do very good reviews on this site an always give very good honest reviews,the video quality on the i8510 is not as good as i thought
aaah...the feature's good, whopping 8MP is also cool...but what about zooming capabilities?
also in reply to ANONYMOUS who mentioned Nokia Being the only Company who uses Carl Zeiss lenses...
Dude, even before Nokia got its grabs for Carl Zeiss, Sony & Sony Ericsson already had it for their cameras...
