Either with the games available from the App store or jailbroken with all the emulators, there is no comparison.

But w... moreThe only thing i8510 can claim is the 8mp and good sound quality (if you check smape.com, you will see the statement saying the difference in SQ between i8510 is so small, most people wont notice it). It doesnt beat other phones on gaming, battery life, ease of use, value for money, software goodies that come with n-series, its UI isnt faster than n95 8gb, n82, n85, n79, despite its processor having a faster clockrate, its dimensions and weight make it quite difficult to operate. Whats worse, its battery life is so bad you cant use the features without charging the phone once or twice a day. The benchmark tests dont really count for anything since you cant really enjoy your games with the mediocre battery. Furthermore your gaming experience cannot compare to n96 or n85 gaming experience dual slide gaming keys
If you ask me, i would rather go for phones which have a unique feature like n82 (xenon flash), n79 (fm transmitter, xpress-on covers), or even i7110 (fm transmitter). The i8510 is just one big pile of upgrades with nothing new. Just an upgraded camera, upgraded sound and upgraded processor. If it came with either a power efficient processor, fm transmitter, touchscreen, more compact body, xenon flash or even a better retail package, then i would say its worth consideration. But only 3mp extra of camera? Its not worth it especially for users who have n95, n95 8gb, n96, n82, n79 or n85. Those 3 extra megapixels dont justify its pricing compared to the rest of these phones.
You should really get your mind out of the myth that more megapixels equals better quality.

But which does it best? It is same as this scenario. N82 and N81 can play music but which produces the best sonic experience? N96 and N95 both have 5MP Carl Zeiss lens w/ DVD-like video recording but which produces the best results? From the article I've read about INNOV8 in smape.com, INNOV8 is really expensive but it's worth every penny you'll pay for it since it gives nothing but the best performance, be it in camera, music, gaming, web browsing, GPS navigation, video playback, build quality, etc. But N96 is not worth its high price tag considering you'll get less for what you'll pay for, poorer image quality than the so much less expensive N82, worse sound quality than N81, lower quality build than its little brother N85, poorer battery life than its predecessor N95 8Gb. N96 and INNOV8's prices are almost the same in some countries. But INNOV8 is clearly more worth buying. Because there is no phone right now that can produce life-size high quality photos, excellent DVD-like videos and slow motion videos, best sound quality, high frame rate gaming graphics, fast and intituitive user interface, and high quality build and materials than INNOV8. All review sites are one in saying that INNOV8 is currently the best all-round multimedia right now. INNOV8 already has its market share and the good thing is it doesn't have any competition right now. Even Nokia's current flagship device, N96, is not to be considered as INNOV8's main rival since N96 has certain market niche only.
Anonymous, 30 Oct 2008Just like I'm happy with using my iPhone and my desk is happy with my boring old N82 paperweig... moreit think your desk is happier than you :) the table has nokia n82 and you have iPhone who cant even take a video of yourself living miserably because you own having a very expensive phone yet fall short on everything aspect except UI.
I call that up front robbery and high stake deception.
Truely I believe in Cute Guys opinion
Innov8 is nothing special than n96, n95, n85, n82, n79 etc because i can do anything that it can do using nokia phones.
I belong to practical people who doesnt live on numbers of benchmark scores, i live in reality, that money is earned and work hard for, that all i need are things thats worth every cents of it and Nokia fulfils those by offering powerful multimedia devices yet not hurting my pocket.
Isnt life beautiful in that sense? Choose Nokia and get the best features, the best value and the best service or choose innov8 were il live miserably because its not worth the value.

Article about Samsung INNOV8 saying it's the best all-in-one device so far and worthy replacement for N95, and not the N96. Everything is best in this multimedia powerhouse.
"Summing the facts up, we'd like to finish the article by saying that doubtlessly Samsung i8510 INNOV8 is today's best all-in-one smartphone and a golden standard for all future smartphone. As your everyday companion, it would make an excellent replacement for Nokia N95, combining a supreme functionality, quality of materials and appealing looks. There is hardly going to be any future price reduction, but INNOV8 is really worth its price and has no competitors. The rest of solutions offer various compromises be it in the way of quality or functionality. The i8510 model is a crucial product that will overhaul the public opinion about Samsung as an S60 smartphone producer."

so il wait 4 him 2 get 1 1st....if he dosnt like it wat shal i do......
I loved my N95 though it wasn't perfect and in fact its screen stopped working after about 17 months of owning it. I hated Nokia Maps but loved using Tom Tom mobile with external GPS receiver when driving as that was so much faster and better than Nokia Maps. I upgraded to the N96 2 weeks ago and after having it for a week I was absolutely disgusted with it. The minute you open it to stick the SIM and battery in, you're faced with that horrible little, flimsy piece of sh*t plastic cover, and it immediately feels cheap. It didn't seem to do anything better than the N95 while the downgraded CPU is useless for Tom Tom. When installed on the N96, Tom Tom is a million times slower than it ever was on the N95 to the point of being unworkable, and won't ever work for more than a couple of minutes on the N96 before it crashes. All that with the latest FW. After that week I took the N96 back to the Carphone Warehouse in London and got an Iphone instead. Sure, the camera on that is no match for that of the N95 or N96 but even so, the Iphone completely rapes the N96. After owning most of Nokia's flagship phones over the years, I take the N96 as a complete insult. This is something that could and should have been so much better and advanced than the N95, and instead it's a sorry excuse for a septic tank of a smart phone. Don't bother with it. If you're expecting it to be better than the N95, you'll be as greatly disappointed as I am. Two questions to Nokia: 1)What the f*ck?
2)Where did it all go so horribly wrong?
As far as I'm concerned Nokia have a stupidly long way to go to redeem themselves after making me wait for this piece of sh*t since last winter! What an absolute shocker!

Why do you have to turn functions off to make the phone work properly?
What's the point of having them in the first place?
