Thanks for the reply. Yep, ur right. Samsung does not want the Innov8 users to have a Crystel Clear screen for long, hence the non-avialability of the Screen protector. As for the TV-out cable, I am already using my N95 8Gig's cable with my new Innov8. As for the applications of the same S60 3rd Edition not working on different handsets/brands in some other thing and thats the Catch, Really!
Anyhow, would greatly appreciate if you/someone could emphasize and advise regarding the 2nd, 3rd and 4th clauses of my previous message/post. THANX again!

Just bought this phone 2 days ago. Also own a Nokia N95 8GB. Unpacked it and found that there wasn't even a Screen protector Sticker. Guess my dealer beat me to it or Samsung did not bother to cover the Display. Was also surprised to find out that Samsung did not even bother to include a TV-Out cable with this high-end gadget. Anyhow, been checking out the features and am quite impressed with build, Cam, Video, Playback, sound, optical pad, keypad, Auto rotation and I am sure that there are alot of other goodies that are yet to be explored by me. However, there are quite a few things that have really let me down in disappointment and hope that there is some solutions to them.
1. Really miss the 3D rotating view in Gallery folder (images, videos etc.), like the one in Nokia n-series phones. I wonder if there is a S60 supporting third-party application to acquire this effect.
2. Even if this has the Real Player, I have been unable to play utube (flash) vids on the handset. GSM Arena Review mentioned that playing Flash vids was no problem on this phone, however I find it otherwise. Any suggestions?
3. Unable to use Wi-Fi Connectivity. It detects my Wi-fi router, however does not start browsing/data transmission giving the message "no gateway reply". Just to inform that there is nothing wrong with my DSL Broadband connection/WLAN router, as my 2 laptops and my N95-8GB are working fine. I think the UPnP technology of N95 has paid off here. Any suggestions are welcome!!
4. Does not have any loudspeaker option during a Call while the slider is closed . Can only use loudspeaker while the phone is slided up.
Do hope that do not find any other flaws in this Phone after further usage!
Innov8 rocks! Try it n u'll know that c905 nothing compared to innov8,their cybershot are crap!
Samsung seem keen to get feedback on S60 application compatibility problems that you may be experiencing with their latest smartphones.
They have just opened up a dedicated discussion board for this :
can any 1 help me i hav the 16gb innov8 and cant find the privacy lock does it even hav it? I hav checkd in security and still nothing. And also hw do i do and upgrade on the ph so that is up 2 date thx, any 1 plz help
Arnold, 25 Jan 2009yeah i read the reviews both products and my best judgement is the PERSONAL EXPERIENCES for pe... moreI tell you what i would like to see and that a battery report..
The thing is i do not have 905 to compare with but if gsmarena did cam/vid/mp3/battery/gps tests and give them a star rating out of 10 it would be good,,for eg,,
battery 7 stars
cam 9 stars
battery 6 stars
cam 8 stars
video 7 stars..
With this rating we could see that of the gsm team that do the same test on every model it would be accurate against each fone leaving the 10 star mark for absolutly blown away...
Lets say you only wanted the gps part of the fone thats mega important to you ,,by skimming thru the results lets say the htc pro was the best then you go for that..This should have been done from the start..Some folk may come on here for good battery and good cam but not care less about mp3 or video quality,,by comparing the bigger rating stars in cam and battery ratings they could find a suitable fone.
If people are serious about a gadget they will buy the standalone item,,however the cam/video/mp3/screen/series 60 makes it perfect to replace the said devices in the innov8 ,but, if i was going for a satnav judging by the resolution and size of innov8 it would not be able to beat a standalone device..So all in all hard for people to swear their lives to a mobile in cases where japanese and south korean mobiles shame the european and american counterparts...I still have not found my perfect mobile,the xperia is to hard to txt an operate in crowds or whilst walking etc,, but anyway my perfect mobile would be a clamshell so i am no where near any mobile that i am going to shout from the rooftops about...
Any user plz giv me ans plz.
Does its icon can animision as n78,n85. If i cange my theme by download nokia theme, does it fully cange as nokia ? Plz reply me.

brynn, 24 Jan 2009Stop winding us up,,this question has been asked over and over again...3 points for you,,,
... moreyeah i read the reviews both products and my best judgement is the PERSONAL EXPERIENCES for people who got to buy and tell something first-hand based on their constant use of product and that would tell me which is which.... i read all the opinions here few are having some good grasp of posting personal experiences of the phone... so i am retrieving well... the very recent experiences (either after software upgrade and/or improvements on new phone releases via hardware etc...) coz i can't rely on previous postings after every release of batch of these phones....

Stop winding us up,,this question has been asked over and over again...3 points for you,,,
1)At the bottom of the page is a search option
2)Go to google and type in either,,
innov8 specs reviews "or"
s/e 905 specs reviews
read reviews and compare
3)Go to c905 forum who will tell you to buy c905 and you will also read all the problems..
I over years have had to study and endure report after report and swap fones under the 14 day exchange and most are awful..The xperia i have is refreshingly different and so is innov8 but if you go for 905 it will just be same s/e but poorer photos and vid..
my father bought for me this phone in germany about 671 euro I am waiting for it,its look the best samsung phone
Nice looking phone feels and looks solid with a nice finish, fantastic sound and video quality with DivX playback on top, not as easy for quick pictures as say an N95 and the phone dose not support mobile youtube quite like the N series Nokias even with the Nokia OS it comes with, optical touch pad is good for browsing the web, the i8510 also come with a dictionary that can define words that would make some people blush, great fun when first used, the phone is or was subject to dust collecting in the top right hand corner.
why so SLOWLY WORKING GARMIN ?
(in comparison with Nokia N95)
car navigation is critical for many people,
some actions on the way can make delay for tens of seconds for one action or minutes on big picture...
DISGRACE!!! Lead must not loose so much on most serious application.
how to correct this?
