To keep gps, wifi and other apps off at all times you must install Battery extender v1.4 and put the necessary settings.
Such a good phone but my flex cable finally went bad after 8 months of usage. i am hoping to repair it soon. I am missing it already. I am now back to my old N96.
But what do you expect ?
Have you checked the date, Released 2008, September.
Thats basically almost 1 year and a half ... Today no one supports a phone more than six months (? If it has some bug) ... If no bug reported, i guess they actually dont even bother with it anymore.
Most of them are something like, are you bored with your phone ?
Then buy a new one and suport our starving families. Thank for your support.
Remember next six months, just buy a new one. Keep our starving families out of poverty... Thank you again.
BTW, search I8510 and you will find website providing firmware to update it to some stable firmwares.
But forget about battery improvements, nothing helps that.
Still looking for a program to control the I8510, mainly its wireless, GPS and 3G. Something to make sure that they are off. Any ideas ?
Anonymous, 28 Apr 2010it is symbian no innov8 i had couple nokias nseries and always had software problems now i'm o... moreI know Symbians might hang here or there, having used them since 4-5 years now.
But my main problem is NO SOFTWARE UPDATE by Samsung. Even the updates given have 1-2 more or less softwares, that's all!
No other changes.
There are so many minor glitches. Like, Ringtone option shows every full song on the phone, instead of contents of the "Sounds" folder only.
Camera switches off Anti Shake everytime and photos then come out blurry!
Search the internet and you'll find "Countless" number of unsatisfied INNOV8 owners, including me of course...

Anonymous, 03 May 2010Hi, can anyone tell me how long that this phone can stand to play the music with 1 full charge... moreHi. With 1 full charge is during about 7 hours of continuous play trough loudspeakers at top volume.
dani, 30 Apr 2010i become bored and hated of SE phones.my k550,k750,k810,k850 hadn*t any lock for image,video,... moreThe samsung i8510 has a password to lock the keypad, that means lock all the phone. To lock images or videos you need to download some app. With sony you can also download apps for this purpose.
Hi, can anyone tell me how long that this phone can stand to play the music with 1 full charge ??
Because GSMArena doesn't provide the hours for the music play.
Thanks in advance.

i want to put "password"on images,videos,call,keypad and everything. DOES 8510 OR N86 HAVE LOCKER FOR ALLTHING?
im waiting for your answer,very very thank you
I8510 is one of the best phone out there, period. Regarding to photos / video is natural that if you tremble, the photos will outfocused, and lets face, most phones suffer from that.
Video quality is good, sound could be a lot better but it depends on what intentions they have when developing it. It will be different for each brand.
Regarding to battery life the I8510 samsung faces the same problem, since its OS is Symbian OS v9.3, Series 60 rel. 3.2, as may others out there.
Here are some advices.
Stop the wifi search, wifi is always turned on and searching for lans. If D-Pad on, turn it off, and the main thing is to disable auto-brightness off and turn the display brightness down. The 3G network maybe also something to turn off.
Here's the catch, the phone last now 2 days full but will never last more than that. Why ?
Nokia sabotage ... It ain't problem from the phone, its just that nokia OS doesn't allow better use from it.
Samsung, SE Vivaz for example, go and search comments for every phone with symbian in these days, all suffer what looks like a common sindrome ... Sabotage.

It gathers mud inside the screen easily,
software updates given are not satisfactory,
sometimes, images come out blurred, and all the time, I have to keep switching ON the Anti Shake option... because, it gets off automatically...
I suggest that for peace of mind, you get the N86 only ...
I'm very disappointed taking INNOV8, after owning Nokia 6670 and N91...
Mrs: NADEEM AHMED, 22 Apr 2010assalam-o-alaikum ........all;
i want to buy samsung innove8 ....... any bo... moreCamera images are high quality, no yellow tinge like you said... But everytime you switch camera on, you'll have to switch Anti Shake on too...
But videos have some problems, like video's sound is low quality compared to other sets, although voice can be understood...
Also, Video sometimes skips frames when phone is shaken a bit...
I wonder why GSMArena did not mention this, before I purchased the set... Did they get a better software version than I have??
Also, Why can't they mention Firmware Versions of the sets they test? It's so easy ... Enter *#0000# and it will display it.
