sou... moretrust mate.. this phone is better than satio
the screen of this phone is the best so far you will never find a screen with such beautiful colors and suitable size..
it records hd video and the sound quality already has been fixed in the italian and hong kong firmwires.. the satio only records vga video which is normal thing.
the only let down is the xenon flash , but the existing led is working fine. Samsung installed led flash in this phone because this phone main feature is to capture hd video and you can use this led when are capturing video , however the xenon flash is only used for taking still pictures

could you pls tell me what is the part no. of the video cable? And should it connect to the headphone jack?
If so is it possible to use e.g. nokia(n95) video cable with this phone?
Mine didnt came with an av cable, but reveiw says its exactly like the nokia av cables.
i had never seen such clarity in mobile phones even lcd fails in front of hd. best part is it has all features and symbian os if any one has budget then buy these phones
coolmastdude, 05 Sep 2009I had decided to go for the Omnia HD but then the LG Bl-40 specifications were announced yeste... moreIf you are going to consider a phone over the i8910 than the LG BL40 may be the correct one to look at. Its a good phone but I still think the i8910 is better, here is why. The i8910s AMOLDE screen is still the best. However the BL40s screen is taller but narrower and can also play hd videos like the i8910 and the picture quality is good and very detailed. So the screen qualities are almost the same with the edge to the i8910. The BL40 is multi touch the i8910 is not but still very responsive. The BL40 has a 5mp camera with I think may be duel led flash. The i8910 has a 8mp camera with led flash and can record in hd the BL40 cannot. The BL40 comes with 1.1Gb of storage and you have to buy a micro sd card of up to 16gb. The i8910 comes with 8 or 16gb and you can buy a micro sd card of up to 16gb. The i8910 has a bigger battery and the screen may give it better life in just my opinion. The BL40 cpu speed is not known yet but it look as fast as the i8910. Because the BL40 is so tall I cant imagine it being as comfortable as the i8910 in the pockets but again that just my opinion. I still think the i8910 is a better choice and is worth waiting for.
rohit, 05 Sep 2009could anyone from INDIA having this phone tell me which firmware version does the phone come w... moreMy FW is DDIG3. I think this every HD owner in INDIA is using this particular. I didn't even record a single video in last 2 weeks. So no idea what codec is in. But I can tell this FW has a lot of bugs. So we need an update ASAP. Samsung India website/PC Studio 7 still can't detect the device for an update. SAMSUNG PLEASE,WE NEED AN UPDATE,AND QUICKLY.
If anybody already updated their HD fw then please inform me.
i am from INDIA.i bought this today chennai in wavetel showroom 16GB version for RS28200 they include everything pouch ,videocable.and the phone excellent on every aspect.samsung what NEXT;;;;;;;
Zak thanks for the review. According to what you reviewed it seems to me like the i8910 is the better device. The screen is AMOLDE which is the best on a phone. Its bigger and the colours are brighter and more detailed than the iphone. The touch sensitivity is the same. The camera is better and does hd recording and has flash the iphone does not. They use the same cpu. I have a symbian phone now and I simply cant see how anyone could say its hard to understand. My 3yr old son knows how to use my phone. Symbian has some features that I would not give up for any other os. Eg. You can record video with music in the background and save them as a contacts ringtone. When I show this to iphone users they have nothing to say cause it makes all there apps look small. And dont sleep symbian has alot of good apps also but if you have to give the iphone something than it might be apps. The i8910 has fm radio the iphone does not. You can change the battery in the i8910 and carry a backup one. The iphones battery you cannot see or move it. The i8910 can play videos in hd the iphone cannot. It is not fair to put the iphone up against a monster like the i8910. Better comparisons would be the LG BL40, SE Satio, Toshiba TG01 and even Samsung Omnia 2. Put these beast up against the i8910 and lets see how it handles itself. Noticed I didnt mention the HTC touch hd, HTC hero, Nokia N97, or the Samsung Jet, its because they are more on the iphones level.

but the screen and speed and camera performance is excellent
could anyone from INDIA having this phone tell me which firmware version does the phone come with? is it the one that records videos with AMR or with AAC audio codec? please reply soon.. thanks in advance!
I had decided to go for the Omnia HD but then the LG Bl-40 specifications were announced yesterday on gsmarena, which were quite tempting. Is the LG BL-40 worth waiting for or should I decide on the omnia HD?

Karan, 04 Sep 2009Omnia HD is available in India for rs.28000Hey Karan,where do u live in India,whats the price of i8910 in india,post me the shop address where i can find it,
I live in Pune and its not available here yet
i've got both iphone and i8910 and i can say this... In terms of usability, intuitiveness iPhone is king. In terms of specs, functions, flexibility etc nothing can touch the i8910. So it depends on what you're looking for. If you can live with the complexity of the symbian OS in i8910 which takes some getting used to then i8910 is the better beast. Else for simplicity and better ui iPhone, Pre.. they rule. But that's not me.. The ui is a challenge but the rewards are beyond anything out there now. Just my 2 cents.
