INNOV8 user., 16 Jul 2010Guys, I have this phone. But please, I don't recommend you to purchase it...

So I will agree on you only on these points: 3, 7 and 8. Other than that, completely disagree about the camera, it's perfect I'd say and you can also tweak the settings if you don't like something about it's photographing, and yeah, when you make digital zoom when making a video it's completely normal that the quality gets worse a lot because it's a DIGITAL zoom, it's not optical if you understand that... It might be slightly slower in menus, but other than that this device is raw power! Really recommend this to anyone who's not looking for the newest and most expensive touchscreen. Besides it's photos are waaaaaay better than most of the newest phones in the market.

It has good points too, but the bad points are:->
1. Photos in slight dark, are blurry, and anti shake turns itself off many times,
Moreover, anti shake and flash can't be used at same time,
2. Videos have horrible audio quality, and lots of missed frames, and even 2x zoom makes its quality bad,
3. The paintjob wears out fast, mine is reflective metal now, instead of black,
4. There's current flowing through its body, which you can get shocked by, if its connected to TV/ Laptop, etc. and if you are barefoot,
5. its screen updates 1 second later after you press a button while its on standby. Until then, it shows the last screen position which maybe an older time...
6. Radio is buggy. It won't respond until you press a key ten times.
If you chose directional key for usage instead, it changes channels damn slowly.
7. The USB wire got defective within 9 months of normal usage. I had to purchase a new one which was of Nokia 5130 Xpressmusic.
The charger got defective within 4 months and a warranty replacement was provided.
Then again, it went kaput at 10 months, then I had to purchase it from market.
8. Battery life is not even useable for 1 day full of usage.
I updated the firmware from to XXHJ3 through Samsung Centre, but NO PROBLEMS ARE SOLVED.
In fact, one of the 3D games disappeared and the other doesn't work anymore, after the update.
And GSMArena, why didn't you disclose these points in your review? Very bad journalism on your part.

I have myself seen maximum digital zoom samples of 3 sets, one innov8, and one omnia and a Apple iPhone 3G.
See the result yourself:
People if you think your battery sunk, then change you current theme trust me it worked for me!!!!!!!
Sahand, 04 Jul 2010I have updated my phone too, but the battery didn't get better!Thnks for your answr Sahand,i'm so sad,now i think to get a second battery and keep a charge in my bag
The main problem with this phone is the person holding it. If one is smart enough to flash a good firmware and tweak it afterwards this is probably the best 8 Mpx phone ever made.
There are thousands of applications, themes, etc that will make your life easier. But why spend a few minutes researching stuff when you can whine.
i love this phone. but after a while, the phone is sooo hard to be charged cuz of the charger ends is diffrnt compare to nokia n so, u can only place the phone side ways or try any other ways in other for the phone to b able to read the charger. ugh. troublesome. drives me mad! :(
Hi all.apart from the many problems ive got with this fone,it now does not connect to the internet since i tryed to download something.it probably has a virus.the dealer i bought it from said to send it to Samsung where they will reprogram the Phone to get rid of all the bugs etc.do u think such a thing will work because ive also heard that the I8510s already came from the factory with a fair share of viruses in the 1st place.thanks
2D, 11 May 2010But what do you expect ? Have you checked the date, Released 2008, September. Thats basica... moreHave u get the upgrade firmware?the other post say that if we get new firmware it will make better battery life,but u said that upgrade firmware won't get better battery life,where is the truth?2D n someone please replay..

Regarding to the camer it has a better quality then most, but perhaps would only compare it to 3.2 mgpx's or even 5 from Nokia. The problem its having a smal sensor to capture photos, which means, it can have a pretty good detail but is limited on size. That reduces the fun on the i8510 camera.
But still, it has powerfull features and a weird blueish flash plus it takes good pictures by night (when you aren't shking ...).
You may wanna look for photo examples to make sure if this is want you want. And you should also see nokia n8 (symbian with 12mgpx), that one seems to ve the best camera phone on the market for now ...
Hey guys! I need to know if the camera is that effective as the Sony ericsson C905. Moreover how do you find its voice when you play music. Is it audible in a place like restraunt? I have also heard that Nokia phones costing 200 Euros can be resold for 100 Euros. What about Samsung phones?
