An excellent phone, but i believe that the missing xenon flash & HSCSD & its very expensive price gives the Nokia N82 some credit. Even that this phone has a wider screen & i'm pretty sure that it is louder than the N82 too, but i still would go with the black N82
Well !! i have read some review on samsung I8510 VS N95 VS n82 photo quality
i am currently using N82
well in my own opinion i think a successful camera phone is to enable user to take photo in various condition.
and it is true samsung i8510 take really good picture especially taking scenery picture in day light becasue it has more resolution !! but failed to produces a good quality picture at night.
back to the main point of using mobile camera !! does we really care the very detail picture taken by a mobile camera ? A digital camera suppose to have a xenon flash not LED flash !!
i have taken some photo with my friends in karaoke rooms and it is completely dark my N82 can take a adequate picture can i8510 phone do ?
in malaysia N82 price is RM1350 samsung i8510 price is RM2550
Buy 1 samsung i8510 can buy 2 N82 (almost) it is worth money ? both phone has identical features only the touchscreen and the size of the screen and more superior camera quality in i8510.
From mobileburn.com :
While we are just now receiving our N96 review units, at this moment it is hard to imagine how the Nokia N96 is going to top what Samsung has done with the i8510 INNOV8. Samsung has put together a very solidly built, feature rich, and darn fun to use smartphone. The i8510 is the best performing and most feature rich camera phone we have ever used, there is enough internal storage on hand for thousands and thousands of music tracks, and Samsung's optical mouse adds a lot of wow factor to the already fantastic S60 web browser.
We reslly don't have anything even remotely negative to say about the i8510 INNOV8. "Highly Recommended", plain and simple. If you are considering an N95 or N96, you would be doing yourself a disservice if you didn't check out this gem first.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Are you joking? this is much better than C905, the last one is a good camera and period, i8510 much better because the OS, dual processor, more RAM and many many more things under the hood. This phone is on top!

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. =)
