Quick question to GSM arena, where did they get their information from to support their claim that call records are "practically unlimited" when the log have a 30 day limit. Even the 30 day log is a wrong claim by Samsung/Nokia because the log only keeps the last 20 received/dialed/missed calls only regardless. So an honest advise if you're thinking about buying this phone stop and think somewhere else, I spent $800 on crappy phone that is way too slow, the clock stopped working the second day I had it due to system error, the camera is way is over rated. The sensor for auto rotate doesn't work it's always horizantal when the phone is held vertical and visa versa, and I can go on and on....a huge disappointment
No, there is no any difference between 8GB and 16GB versions, except the memory size. I personally bought 8GB + 16GB microSD as price difference between 8GB and 16GB versions is just ridiculously high, and I do not need more than 24GB in total for now.
I think this is important that we see nokia's 8mpx phone and then decide to buy this phone,this is hard work but is possible,isn't it?
Can any one plz tell me if there is any difference between the 8GB version and 16GB version other then the memory size? Thank you.
Best phone you can get now, i have it amazing phone...
i wasn't expecting this from samsung..
Griffith, 17 Dec 2008The worst phone i have used ever. People who are willing to buy this phone please make your wi... moreMr.Griffith, nothing personal but I have a uncanny feeling that u have a vendetta against Samsung.I neither work for Samsung nor get paid by them for holding a candle to them. But I beg to differ from yr opinion on the handset's sound & camera quality. Innov 8, in my opinion,is a versatile set in general & a pretty competent music & imaging set in specific. Having said that, I should admit the fact that the design itself is not to my liking since it resembles Nokia N 95 ,8 GB & a little bulky too. After all u do not get a single devise that would excel in all areas. But in general Innov 8 is definitely an excellent mobile phone.

A very good phone and an amazing camera - for a phone.
But its still not enough to beat good old compact cameras. I don't want it to make DSLR-quality pictures, but keeping up with a 2-year old 10mp canon without IS should be possible now.
So I'm waiting for the middle of 2009, for the rumored 12mp Sony camera phones and their competitors.
As for the phone itself - if you want a media phone (music, videos, photo-, video-recoding and reviewing) and its size/price doesn't scare you (its a big expensive brick), it could be one of the best non-WM devices you can get in 2008.
When they make a camera phone, that beats my good old canon ixus 900ti and costs less than $500, I'm sold. But I'm afraid it won't be happening next 3 years...

5700 Lover, 17 Dec 2008Hi Mr. Anonymous . PLS tell me who the hell u R. I read at least 10 Mobile phone's opinion in ... moreFor sure I am not the anonymous person u are trying to castigate in yr msg. Nevertheless, as a matter of fact there are people who go on changing their toys very often. So pls do not be biassed. Have an open mind. Read reviews,evaluate them & talk to knowledgable people before u decide on yr purchase.By the way do not throw yr shoes at that anonymous person. I doubt whether they will show u on TV.Besides u will be be branded as a spoil sport.
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2008Yes I own an Innov8 & had a Nokia N96(got rid of it at 50 % loss). If u want to compare any No... moremust agree. I'm a Nokia fan and love Nokia phones but they need to step up a little. N95 is old now and the 96 does no justice, not with the INNOV8 out. Real reason I got this phone is s60 software (samsung with a nokia heart) but unless Nokia steps up, its a Samsung world. LG is pretty close but they need to take up Symbian to make any head way. Had a few and the performance was not to my liking. Didn't like Samsung until now, this is an amazing device. Camera, mp3 player, radio, video player, internet device, mobile gaming device, business tool, email, ...... list goes on and it sends texts and makes calls too! Do phones still do that?
Also to add to my last comment, youtube works perfectly. Web browsing is 300 times better than my blackberry and emails are no problem to get(using gmail) and they look better too. Need an all in one phone then, Samsung made the INNOV8 just for you. Be sure to purchase an additional battery if you spend alot of time making calls. Battery dies quickly with calls but you can run the music player all day... Turning it off then on seems to help... Bless!

If u want to compare any Nokia phones with INNOV 8, I could only think of E 71, at present. Believe me I am not biassed & do not hold candles to any phone manufacturers, but truth be spoken- N96 is a disgrace for Nokia family. Unless they double up & release N97 within 2 or 3 months, it will be another white elephant.
I bought the INNOV8 and love it! The only downside so far is that unlike Nokia, there are no dedicate music controls nor is there any control with the supplied headset. There is also a little lag with menu navigations but nothing that'll make you pull your hair out. The camera is awesome, better than some of my friends' digital cameras. The additional features included with the s60 operating system are very nice as well and the space is rediculous (although my entire itunes library already fills it - alot of music! (2000 +) If you own a mac, you may have to buy a third party software to sync with itunes and to sync with contacts but this is the best phone i've ever seen and i've had alot. Definately beats the iphone and blackberries (unless touch screen is your thing)

Maybe it is the best for u to just read the GSM Arena's review on this phone's performance. Else u can also read from other review site.
Believe them or not, it is totally up to u bro.
So Mr brc how much samsung is paying you hahahahah, it's funny that Symbian works perfect on a Nokia phone. Install it on a Samsung phone..well buy the Innov8 you will find the answer.."Crappy"
