Anonymous, 06 Aug 2008sorry to correct you but nokia n96 does not use the tiomap processor, but the nomadik processo... moreN96 no 3D graphic accelerator ?
It's mean Samsung i8510 INNOV8 has absolutely better than N96 coz have 3D chip graphic accelerator, 3D surround & preinstalled 3D game (asphalt, FIFA 2008)
Why u guys compare this phone with n81?
N81 was outdated. Now all high end phones has HSDPA, 7 times faster than UMTS. N81 only has UMTS...LoL
The are THREE types, how many times must i say this!:
Theres the TI OMAP2420 used by the N82, N93, N93i, N95, N95-8gb and E90, the GPU runs at anytime when required, all these have the OpenGL ES1.1 plug-in.
Then the TI OMAP2430 used by the SAMSUNG i550/W, i560 and G810, the GPU is used in the camera ONLY.
Then theres the TI OMAP2431 used by the i450 which is missing the GPU.
The Freescale CPU use in the mid end NOKIAs has multimedia support just not as powerful as the one in the TI OMAP2420 chip.
Nokiyem, 06 Aug 2008-TI OMAP are premium high end CPU brand, and used by : Nokia N96, Nokia N95, Nokia N95 8GB, No... morethere are actually 2 types of tiomap processor used by symbian phones. n95/8gb, n93/i, n82, e90 use the tiomap 2430. samsung g810, i450 and the like use the tiomap 2431. the diference between 2430 & 2431 is 2430 has 3d graphics accelerator while 2431 does not have. n96 does not use any of the 2 tiomap processors, but rather use the same processor of n92, it's called nomadik, running at 264mhz, no 3d graphics accelerator as well.

-TI OMAP are premium high end CPU brand, and used by : Nokia N96, Nokia N95, Nokia N95 8GB, Nokia N82, Nokia N93, Nokia N93i, Nokia e90, Samsung i450, Samsung i550W, Samsung G810, etc
- FreeScale are more cheaper CPU because lack some multimedia feature support, and used by : Nokia N81, Nokia N81 8Gb, Nokia E51, Nokia 6120 Classic, Nokia 5700, Nokia 5320, etc
N81 and i450 screens are both 2.4"inch, the i450's screen may look bigger due to the i450s white colour and more rounded shape wheres N81 is more smooth, sophisticated and beautiful.
The i450 doesnt even have dedicated music keys. Im surfing the net with my N81 and listening to music and when i wana switch tracks all i do is click the Next or Previous button, if i wana Pause or Play i click the Play/Pause button, when i wana stop and turn off the music player i just simply click Stop and ALL THIS while writing this post without even having to see the Music player,poor i450 users have to keep going back to the Music Player to do all this, thats if they can even keep two web browsers in large pages, music player,A game and IM all running at once on that tinny winny limited 20mb of RAM available LMAO!!
Im running all the above on my N81 and stil have 28.6mb of RAM available to run even more LOL! Must suck to only have 20mb RAM at boot up LMAO!
N81 is SOOO much better. :-D
Oh and YES an extra 39mhz as well as the extra 66mhz of the N81s Freescales 3D Processor means that the N81 has around 105mhz more than a i450 at full power! People fail to read that although the N81 has a faster single CPU at 369mhz the CPU has a built-in 3D Processor that adds 66mhz so in reality the N81 gets to around 435mhz when running at full power for example when running Ngage or a high 3D game like CBNC,little i450 sits at 330mhz at highest. N95 at 552mhz when the GPU is running. :-)

Anonymous, 05 Aug 2008Review from CNET : SAMSUNG SGH-i450 Editor's rating : 8,6/10 (Spectacular) (Editor's Choic... moreFACT is N81 is better,i own a N81 and have a friend's i450 to install sum softwares for him, and there are quite a lot of them that i450 doesn't wana run,CNET have overlooked a lot. The N81 is a GAMING, MUSIC AND VIDEO device and does them all better than the i450.
Review from CNET :
Editor's rating : 8,6/10 (Spectacular) (Editor's Choice)
The Good : Bang & Olufsen audio hardware;S60 Platform;funky music player interface;HSDPA;bundled 1Gb microSD card.
The Bad : Touch wheel i a bit tricty to use;no WiFi;not the sexiest handset around.
The Bottomline : If Samsung keep producing music phone liked the i450, with Bang & Olufsen audio hardware, then Sony Ericsson's dominance of music-focused mobiles may come to an abrupt halt
NOKIA N81 8GB
Editor's rating : 7/10 (Very Good)
The Good : Great music features;excellent screen;top-notch connectivity
The Bad : Touch wheel is poor;average camera;bulky and heavy
The Bottomline : We love the Nokia N81's mammoth 8Gb of storage space and excellent music and gaming features. However, whe wish it wasn't so bulky and that it had a better touch wheel. As a result it's not really the revolutionary multimedia handset that we were hoping for.
Both are very close but the N81 gives a better balance of treble and bass, as well as the fact you can create as many of your own equaliser settings as you want, i have 3 for different types of music and headphones.
Speed and Browsing Features:
The N81 has the edge here, its slightly faster around menus than i450 due to its faster CPU, the N81 also has far more RAM to multitask and run heavier programmes than the i450. For Web browsing the N81 is FAR better it has BOTH 3G and Wi-Fi whereas i450 only has HSDPA. The N81 also has FlashLite3.0 BUILT-IN to the Web Browser so it can view Full PC FLASH8 websites such as Full Desktop PC YouTube.
The N81 OWNS this territory! It has Ngage with the Ngage Gaming Keys,and AMAZING 3D graphics, the N81 is able to run games MUCH smoother than i450. The i450 lags in some games, yet N81 can play them with no problem.
Both have a very responsive navi wheel BUT once again the N81 takes this because the N81's navi wheel works in MORE MENUS such as Messaging, Contacts, Gallery and other lists.
Again N81 has it all including UPnP via Wi-Fi with Home Media sharing so you can share files via Wi-Fi between your N81 and PlayStation3 or PC, IT ALSO has VoIP via Wi-Fi, native support for Full Desktop YouTube, dual 3D loudspeakers, dedicated Music keys, dedicated Gaming keys, lighting up Volume and Camera keys, dedicated Multimedia key etc. . .
The i450 has a better keypad, the N81 keypad is hard but is great after some getting used to.
Which is better in general:
The N81 is far better in general, there are some nice additions to it such as the Menu Animations and Transitions, the Wi-Fi features it has, the On-Demand-Paging which makes it a lot more stable, faster around menus, makes the hardaware and software a lot more efficient on power and RAM useage AND on top of that the N81 has DOUBLE the RAM Multitasking memory of the i450 meaning the N81 is also a far better smartphone and multitasking device. :-) N81 is clearly better.
I would like to know which phone is better based on the following criteria
2)Speed and browsing features
4)The Navi wheel present in both
5)Over all multimedia features
7)and generally which is better
Hebe Tian, 04 Aug 2008- WiFi use in hotspot area only & very limited, but u can use HSDPA everywhere & everytime u n... moreYou're now talking trash. Yes Assassin's Creed will install BUT IT LAGS when running in your cheap i450. I have wi-fi at home and most restaurants and malls as well as universities, and airports, have it so i can use it where ever i am, NO you cant use HSDPA where ever you are, HSDPA coverage is limited in all countries!
LOL yes you can install FlashLite3.0 for free on your cheap i450 BUT that FL3.0 wont work in your Web browser so it's useless!
LOL SE sound quality is not better you trash talker! Have you read the NOKIA N81 vs. SE W960 review at Mobile-Review? The N81 destroyed the W960! All thanks to the Toshiba DAC33 chip. Get over it. :-) N81 is far better than the cheap rip-off i450 which cant even run Karmagedon.
Beuh...really i wait symbian from samsung n this phone i like i need it bro. ..samsung gthu lox..hohoho
Hi everyone, I want share my experience about this phone. Me N81 user before & sold this phone to buy the rival i450 coz several reason.
Samsung i450 has a good casing, solid build quality & excelent dual sliding mechanism. Also ergonomic navigation & keypad.
Nokia N81 I used before has fingerprint magnet, look dirty everytime also bulky in design. The N81 navigation & keypad also hard to use. Not ergonomic & has slow videocall.
Anonymous, 03 Aug 2008N81 has Wi-Fi b/g so it can do 11mbps which is faster than 3.6mb HSDPA.
Yes there are some 3D... more- WiFi use in hotspot area only & very limited, but u can use HSDPA everywhere & everytime u need. It's mean N81 are outdate in connectivity.
- I can installed Asphalt 4 HD, Assassin Creed HD, etc in Samsung i450 without problem. Same as NGage right? In fact, Samsung i8510 INNOV8 are the best game phone in World Cyber Game 2008 New York. Where's the Nokia NGage?
- Also I can installed Adobe Flashlite 3.0 in Samsung i450 for free.
Anonymous, 03 Aug 2008N81 has Wi-Fi b/g so it can do 11mbps which is faster than 3.6mb HSDPA. Yes there are some 3D... moreGet real guys, Sony or Yamaha are better in sound than cheap Toshiba that used by Nokia N81 if u comparing with another japanese audio chip manufacture. And Bang & Olufsen that used by Samsung i450 are premium brand in high end audio quality (maybe better than Sony or Yamaha). It's reason why Sony Ericsson Walkman & Samsung music edition are better than Nokia XpressMusic or NSeries in audio quality.
