I actually went to Samsung to have my innov8 replaced. After three weeks of torture, they replaced it. I have few questions, does any1 here have problems using GPS? mines not able to lock connection with any GPS satellite. The battery is bad even with the new unit however i would wait for a week to see if it will change. Also mine doesn't come with the route66 navigator software. IS it really normal?
I'm a user of Nokia N95 and also a bit Fan of Nokia, but I'm thinking to Buy a Samsung INNOV8 or OMNIA, and to make a difference in my life, because i was bored of using Nokia, Nokia,Nokia everytime and by the way also SYMBIAN OS.. that's why I decided to buy an Omnia, but now a days I start to think that SYmbian is better than Windows Mobile and any other OS, it's clear, fast and easy to use... so I'm so confused and also not sure that do I have to buy an INNOV8 or an OMNIA !!!
Any Idea?? you'r welcome :)
in the beginning, bad, after a few times charging: very good!
To anyone who complains about bad battery life:
- recharge only when battery is really(!) empty (this 'teaches' the battery about its capacity)
- try to hold your opinions about bad battery life for one week
- Be reasonable: if you try every gadget the phone has all day long any phone's battery would deplete
I would like to ask if it is possible to use GPS without being connected to the internet. I mean, download the maps and then use GPS without connecting to internet
hey guys,another question... can the location of where u are be displayed under the network name displayed in the idle screen.. i can do it with all the other phones ive owned but cant seem to figure it out with this one... think its like cell info, or broadcast messages or somefin but yeah, i cant work it out..
I simply can't understand why this phone has given so less ratings at GSMARENA.COM despite it's superb features.
I Think people are jealous of Samsungs
In my opinion this phone is the best in the market to date.

Samsung has proudly proclaimed that global sales of it's high megapixel packing cameraphones have topped 10 million units this year, and that's considerable achievement.
These include the symbian-powered GT-i8510 INNOV8, SGH-G810, SGH-F480 and also the recently announced GT-M8800 PIXON.

Because some immoral people can use their 8mp camera to capture some "under female's dress" without their knowing. Which is a crime.
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2008Is it possible to get a better battery? Something like a heavy duty battery?
Btw how to shu... moreTo answer to my own question.
The battery life is not actually that bad.
It is as good as SE C905 if not better.
I can play a few MTV videos, listen to few hours of radio each days. Shoot a few photos and videos and about 3 to 6 calls and around 10 sms each day.
Now i am in my third day since my last battery charge.
What i did was just simple turn off the WLAN auto scan and switch to power save mode. It really does save a lot of battery consumption.
Btw, not really understand when people say that the signal is bad... cause since last week till now, i never face this problem.
Same as the responsiveness. It is superb. It is better than Renoir and C905.
And maybe My Innov8 is the one of the super Innov8? because till now, it never hang or restart itself before. Can someone teach me how to make it auto restart itself? hehe

vishu, 29 Nov 2008when i go to smile mode guys my phone did not shoot automatically when d subject smiles:( ?? why??what i think is, the function basically detect the changes of the shape of the lips. so when u pointing it to a person who already smile, it won't work. But when u point to a person who is not smilling and the photo will shoot when he start to smile... hope this answer your question. cheers :p
