INNOV8 user.(Samarth, 19 Sep 2010@ Arturas: See, I never use Digital Zoom while snapping, and I view photos on PC Monitor.
Wha... moreall you need are tricks bro....
I can say that this phone could produce a similar shot with a point-and-shoot.......you just need to familiarize on the phone's capability for e.g.
Auto-Mode is always preferred even at night with ambient lighting since it optimizes the shutter speed.....
Night Shot will surely take time on a shot...
Pushing flash on a low-light shot is good until ISO 800...Samsung's got a good Image Processing unlike Noisy Nokia Algorithms(that's why they need xenon)...Maybe blurriness can be solved with firmware update since phone's response is greatly improved..
*There's nothing you can do about the anti-shake turning off every now and then...it's there since g800
On audio, the audio quality when surround is ON is surprisingly similar on my i-touch......I use Wide when connected to high-powered speakers...
I wonder why Samsung stopped producing this because only a few knows that this phone exist and that this is a jam-packed device...Maybe N86 is as good but compared to n95 and n82 and other low-end touchscreen phones?...
ive been having problem with this phone. the screen just went black n i need to wait like for a min or so before i can see sumtin on the screen n wen it does, it goes blank again. wats actually the problem??
@ Arturas: See, I never use Digital Zoom while snapping, and I view photos on PC Monitor.
What I'm saying is that the shutter timing is so damn slow... 1/30 of a second is so slow, it makes you blur the photo most of the time, unless you're using a tripod (which who uses for a mobile?).
Evening photos are almost always blurry...!
Like you say, one may tweak settings but the camera doesn't save them.
Close the camera once and damn- most of your settings gone!
And all of my points are true for me, can't say why you disagree. Maybe you didn't notice...? or your firmware was better than XXHJ3?
@ mach: Yes, I should NOT have used "Way above". N86 and innov8 are quite similar in features, give or take few features.
@ gom: Sound is great except a little lower bass when using headset. Get a bassy headset and its fine...
Battery: Average, one-two days at most.
the phone is actually good but i personnaly think it is to much for a phone like this. however the camera is brilliant and overall is fine
Steven, 23 Aug 2010I have had this phone for around 7 months now.. After a while of having the phone, you start t... moretry updating unofficially using Apollo.....The firmware XXBI2 is official though, you may want to update it yourself..mine it took 3min without connection probs......now, my battery lasts for 2 days with abuse of the music player.......browsing will also be faster.....anyway, just an opinion
this phone's great......had problems on the previous firmware but just go to innov8 forum and upgrade to the XXBI2 firmware.....now, the phone is speeedy(and the battery life is extended) + i managed to get n-gage working......loudspeaker's the best and the camera is an over-all performer.....just need to find the rights settings in low-light with flash....in daytime, its like a point-and-shoot digicam in quality

Best phone I ever had!. I've bought three other phones (omnia, gw620, etc)over the past year to "better" it but ended up going back to it. All it needs to be perfect is a touch screen - it's the ONLY thing missing.
I have had this phone for around 7 months now.. After a while of having the phone, you start to realise that the phone isn't as brilliant as it looks or what people may make it out to be. Some of the main problems about this phone are:
- Dust collects under the screen, and there is no way of solving this problem unless you send it back to Samsung; if its not under gurantee you will be charged.
- Hardly any updates! Samsung never release updates for this phone, so bug fixes etc will not be fixed!
- Its a little slow.. Photos and videos take a while to load which can be annoying and the menu sometimes lags.
- Battery life is awfull, it needs charging every day, even if you don't use it a lot.
I reccomend that you don't purchase this phone, it's a tad out dated now and it has to many issues that samsung cant be bothered to address.
hi, I'm having trouble installing anti-virus--i tried both bit defender and kaspersky trial version for mobile phone but I'm getting an error that installation is not supported, what should I do with it??
Thanks in advance...
if your on to the camera quality,,better to avail C905,,
and either,,c905 video quality/audio,,is far more better than this one..
mach, 28 Jul 2010"Feature wise - yes, it is way better than N86..." I have both i8510 and N86, and... morehello?? y do u say n86 camera better???has a wider and bigger lens??? photo quality depends on the amount of details captured and innov8 does a better job doing that...
