you will never ever ever be able to keep up with the latest technology. my advice is get a good phone for calling and texting and music, like the se w890 and get urself a decent compact camera with 10 or 12 megapixels and 5 to 10 optical zoom. job done. never mind the innov8 or the c905 cos every few months phone companies will be releasing slightly better handsets to make money. Increase da peace, not only in da middle east!
Striker, 16 Oct 2008@averset I completely agree with what the anonymous poster has said below - I also chose th... moreI have Omnia and Innov8 both. The both great phone that is why owen both phoen. But if I ahve to choose between one then I take Omnia based on my preference up to my needs. I like Touch screen. I you like others and liek to complain about battery pwoer then buy Omnia and if you no care and looking for good camera phone and look a like Nokia phone then buy INNOV8 phone. Any How both great phone. Omnia is a PDA and INNOV8 is smart phone.
sena, 16 Oct 2008uhh, awful battery life, I charge it twice in a day with normal use , and also it takes too mu... moreI think you guys no understand what is going on. The phoen technology has changed. All new phoens from all Brands now have 3G, Wi-Fi, and hi resolution screen. So, these options use alot of battery power. Before no have this features plus no color screen or low resulation like N70. So, If you look at HTC, Nokia and Samsung everyoen complaining battery problem since compair with the old phones. So, up to you what you like? if you need jsut a phoen then do not buy phoen with all featues such as Samsung INNOV8 or lets say N series from Nokia. Stop compaining about battery power and just plug in the phone to power.

I completely agree with what the anonymous poster has said below - I also chose the Innov8 over the Omnia for the buttons, and I've not once regretted my decision, regardless of the poor battery.
I've had 2 touchscreen phones previously - a HTC and an LG. I found both to be delightful gadgets, but not too practical when it comes to typing texts or emails, something I do a lot. I ended up ditching them and going back to my SE K810i.
The bootom line is, feature-wise, theres not a great deal between the two other than a few extra MP, so if you're happy with using Symbian OS, then I'd thoroughly recommend the Innov8. I'm pretty confident that it's only a matter of time before Samsung release a stronger battery, and if they don't, I'm sure there will be unofficial ones available, so until that day comes, it's just a case of making sure you keep it juiced up.
Although saying that, I do agree with Brynn's point - we shouldn't be sitting here waiting and hoping for a new battery, Samsung shoulda provided an adequate one in the first place. But hey, if they had have done, the Innov8 would then be the perfect phone, and what would we have to moan about on here then?!?!
And good to see it's back where it belongs - Number 1 in GSMArenas rankings.
averest, 16 Oct 2008samsung has made a break through among the big notch companies which were dominant in innovati... morei think u should consider omnia and innov8 as 2 different things. the one is smartphone and the other is pocket pc..the omnia runs on windows mobile 6.1 and the other one on symbian..the one is touch screen operated and the other button operated.if u used both of these operating systems u should think which of the 2 suits u better and enjoy more when using..the same goes for the input method.. do u find more convenient touchscreen or buttons..? i personally chose innov8 because of the buttons.. i find it very inconvenient to use touchscreen.. the sure thing is whichever of the 2 u choose u will not be dissapointed at least specificationwise..most of the people will tell u go for the innov8 because of the camera.. but that's stupid because 5 mpix on a mobile phone is more than enough..
Yep, it's RM2899 + pouch + screen protector + 8Gb microSD from FMG Malaysia. It's the Innov8 8Gb version. Hop in to my site to find out more. Just do google search for 'adliayob' or 'blog symbian malaysia'. Better deal than N96 (RM3339)
Thanks SMS for your reply. But thats not all. Style matters to me but thats not worth enuff to spend on something if it is not upto a minimum usage or friendly user. Seemingly, the innovate at its bulkness will not be a reason at all for not buyin.
After reading all the reviews I believe tat innov8 have lost its hype if battery a concern. Inspite of giving the best features ever with a break through in camera Samsung should have looked into it seriously. Cell phones are itself a consumer convenient product and it ranks top only if the battery is gud enuff.
Though am looking seriously into buying innov8 despite of all these cons, reason being 8MP camera,
i expect if anyone has anything to tell me about my choice. THANK YOU
Looking round web the battery life is bad because of the poor attenae used in the innov8,,,right mobiles have been round for years if they cannot get the signal stength right in this day and age they should cease making phones..The primary function of mobiles is talk/txt and in 2008 they should have perfected this to gold standard,,no excuse,,if these firms cannot get things right and working what are they doing in this buisness..Te above goes to every single telecommunications manufacturer.
can you watch youtube with INNOV8 just like N95 8gb?
i mean does it have flash lite 3
samsung has made a break through among the big notch companies which were dominant in innovations.But the launching of omnia and innov8 with very less span of time have developed confusion amid the hardcore users. Though ain't am i on the sphere of the so called mentioned users list i find difficult to make a choice on omnia and innov8.
If anyone has made a decision after a similar situation please post me the model purchase and also the reason for. Thank you
uhh, awful battery life, I charge it twice in a day with normal use , and also it takes too much time to charge it. So boring, I just returned my nokia n958gb and waiting n85,
brynn, 16 Oct 2008Yes i see what you mean you need constant settings update whereas i only stay in uk so i am ok... moreI use the site www.handango.com to downlaod applicaitons. INNOV8 does not install the applicaitons suppose to be made for S60 or signed to Samsung Phone. If I use Nokia Phone and go to another country I can use the internet with SIM card from the country I travel with. But with INNOV8 if i change the provider from same country does not do auto set up and I am told that need to go to shop to set up. I never had to do this with my E66 or N82 before.
john, 16 Oct 2008I owen Nokia before and travel any where part of world with same SIM card or if change to loca... moreYes i see what you mean you need constant settings update whereas i only stay in uk so i am ok.. If i go sim free i still will need settings but these should be available from voda BUT not necessarily cause i am running n82 but cannot get voda live settings cause they do not support n82 so i cannot buy any tunes cause secure settings and mobile payments do not get accepted and voda live is just a few lines of txts no colour or anything..
I wonder if this fone is just like nokia n82 etc or will some bits be missing cause they are nokia only??
I suppose its series 60 third edition so all my fave apps should work plus my themes by zedge and mobil9 should work.As long as i get yahoo go 3 thats a huge email help plus i use these on n82,,,
first aid guide
and so on
Samsung innov8 is just begin of fight between nokia and samsung.Nokia only buying time with N96 but when they answer with N97 or N98 they will show who they really are.The best brand in the world.I'm from Montenegro and i have N95 wich is cheaper and better than innov8.Sorry about bad english :)
brynn, 16 Oct 2008I wonder if set up wizard is nokia only then????I owen Nokia before and travel any where part of world with same SIM card or if change to local SIM card Nokia phoen automaticly configure the connection. But with This phone have problem and it try to do auto but can not find. So, I was ask to bring the phone back to check. IF is not Auto then is useless for me since I travel alot.
