insaneman, 12 Oct 2008as far as camera is concerned i have been on a independed web site which compares photos qual... moreThanx thats a good indicator,,can i ask you a question if i can,,,What would you say battery life is like for a heavy days use which would include 3hrs mp3 playback,,1 hr web, 20 txts send/recieve plus 40 minutes calls,,games 45 minutes...I know this is an awful indicater but to give you another idea i am using n95 8gb and that gets me thru day and gives up at 9pm after a 6.30am start at full charge.Another scenario is my samsung g600 (that did 12.hrs non stop mp3) also lasted me the day albeit at poor web browsing..
Some are saying poor battery wich maybe because of 3g use but i use gprs because 3g is no faster when using opera in fact its longer when using small data and even worse in hsdpa as it goes thru the decoding process.I turn off cell broadcast ,,etc to maximise battery life but the innov8 battery cannot be worse than the n95 original what i used to have,,thanx billy
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I agree with you 100% .
Nokia fans Shame .
samsung is the best .
Sorry not on HITS but Ratings Category
Samsung fans keep voting 10 out of 10 for this phone and rate Nokia N82 1 out of 10 so that n82 also drops its rating
The Nokia N85 is available soon an as a much better batterylife an cheaper price so will see if people will now turn there backs on the i8510 because of the price an get the N85 instead,as there been no phone yet challenging the i8510 but now the N85 an the C905 are on there way,so will now be under pressure so the price of the i8510 might drop now to get people to sign up for it

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970It's so sad since Samsung Innov8 was posted as #1 phone rated on gsmarena.com with design, features, and performance average of 8.8 just 5 days ago. All of a suddon the ratings drops!! Hmmm.. It does show we have some Butthurt Nokia fans. I'm not a fan of any mobile phone company and I give props to whoever gives out an all-in-one device with good features and design. But I dont bash a good phone beacause I got its competition AKA N96 AKA A Joke or simply beacasue I can't afford it. Don't hate, congradualte! Much props to samsung which I personally didn't like any of their phones after D500 for giving out the #1 phone in the world. It's funny that a company other then Nokia that owns Symbian has a better Symbian phone. LOL!
The keypads are comfortable for me and they're not hard to press. =)

But you should start giving alot of credit to Samsung with their postion in market. As far as I know they start gettign a head of Nokia keep making N series and other cheap phone during year 2008. You talk about bad Battery life. I owen 2 Nokia E66 and I have to charge the phone twice a day and not talking about how bad camera is. I had N82 and I did sell it right away sicne it was bad looking phone and could not get use to a sardin look can which N82 look like and not easy to use the push bottoms.
I can not believe Nokia has not even introduce one touch screen phone when IPHONE came out 2 years ago. Hopethe Nokia 5800 is god with no problem. Nokia introduce N96 after N95 but preformance of N95 beter than N96 after more than year N95 in market.
My two Nokia E66 has been in Nokia Shop so far two times for software of mechanical problem. I still believing Nokia but they are putting me down. I have Samsung Omnia and i have no problem so far.
Hi i m using this phone 4rm last 2 weeks.there is no problem in it.but nw i wan 2 buy nokia n82.
took the phone used it for 2 days and sold it back again...reasons...1) poor battery had to charge it twice ia a day.. 2)camera 8 mp but not good at all in zoom mode its useless clicking a snap..functions and menu seems like a copy of nokia N series phones..cause it a symbian phone.. 3)phone is heavy compared to a nokia N82.. 4) no xenon flash for such an expensive phone..with 8mp..which screwes up snaps taken in dark... 5)photo clarity is poor and below average..not even at par with nokia N82.. 6
Does anybody know how to set the missed message alerts for this phone? It seems to have a lot of fancy things on it but not the basics like, no showing for missed call/message; no alert for missed call/message.

anna, 10 Oct 2008unfortunately battery life is awful, I charge it twice in a day with normal use, it is also so... morei have to agree battery life is not as good as i was hoping for but charging twice a day what are you doing with it? i use my mp3 player or radio when on my rounds (i am a postman)also browsing wap most days and still only charge once a day when i go to bed the only time i might have to charge more than that is if i leave fring application on which is using wap or wi-fi
Horrible keypad. N95 keypad=perfect. Other than that...perfect phone.
