heh, the phone is already in Bulgaria :D
Te camera samples are taken in Bulgaria, I was amazed when I saw them :D :D :D , 'couse I'm from Bulgaria :)
This is about PROUD.
- Proud to use own camera module(Samsung 8 Megapixel module).
- Proud to use own LCD (Samsung TFT LCD).
- Proud to use own memory (Samsung 16GB moviNAND).
- Proud to use own audio chip (Samsung DNSe 2.0).
I'm PROUD to use Samsung mobile phone.
Barrack Obama, 31 Aug 2008Nokia is not making 8MP phone because they already have the Carl Zeiss optics, only the VINTAG... moreeven samy g600 beats n95 carlzeiss in quality pictures just buy or borrow one and make test like i did then check on comp and find out that carl is good name on bad product
I am surprised no one has yet mentioned that this phone has started selling in Dubai since the 27th of August. However, it is not being marketed by the official agent yet. It is evident it has been imported from abroad, as it is not Arabic-compatible. It is being sold exclusively by the importing chain at USD 1000 (the 16 GB version). The officially imported version by the official agent will go on sale first week of September. I am curious to read feedback from anyone who has actually bought it in Dubai. I intend to buy the official version the minute it hits the shelves.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970lol that's completely the contrary of what i said..nokia is the one i doubt the durability and i'm not angry either lol.yes nokia uses a particular lense.probably samsung would have done much better if they had that kinda lense but the facts are there..it produces the best images yet by a camphone. what's the point of vintaging and stuff when the camera is not yet the best.
uh huh.., 31 Aug 2008i don't think nokia will stay for long without a 8mp camera i wouldn't be surprised if it come... moreRemember, ferrari and mazda c", the VINTAGE, Carl Ziess, beaten by Samsung, draw it in the sky and dream..
please can anybody tell me if the 8mp sensor is a ccd o a cmos???why samsung only produces ccd phones in the korean market???and is the quality of the samsung,s cmos sensor for phones equal to the ccd ones???
Barrack Obama, 31 Aug 2008Nokia is not making 8MP phone because they already have the Carl Zeiss optics, only the VINTAG... morei don't think nokia will stay for long without a 8mp camera i wouldn't be surprised if it comes out soon..carl zeiss or not this camera beats the N95. u like facts, that's a fact.

What is Samsung camera optics compare to the Vintage Carl Ziess? Ahhh? junk? its like comparing Ferrari to Mazda. no matter how you increase the MP for Samsung, its still has no prestige and class compared to the legendary Carl Zeiss..
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970durability durability..that's the biggest question.yes the nokia is known to be durable..but from what i've observed around me..here practically all use nokia.nokia phones WERE durable.the fact is there new phones are all crappy.i used the D500 it fell many times and right on the camera, i took my shower with it around because i needed the time..and never has the software or anything else started to get wrong the only prob i had with it was the phone to screen link cable.i slided it too much and it damaged.i was disappointed a lot since it was a valuable gift.but then i've seen nokia slider phones have the same issue too, the first slider phones ones a 6111 to be more precise..for new ones i don't know.as i said in a previous post i stated the probs i had with nokia phones if u don't mind, it would be nice to read it. nokia is no longer durable..what is keeping it up is it's reputation.yes people don't buy samsung smart phones why would they buy something they don't know about.samsung marketing has been bad plus also their troubles in stabylising in terms of specs.now finally they are doing it and they make gorgeous models why wouldn't those who like samsung be happy after so long.i don't care about ur stats i already said it.you are trying to help?microsoft was dumb and still all people used it.. big market share wonderful market stats but apple was much much better.now microsoft improved a lot and is graphically nice.market share, stats..is all about advertising and knowing where to sell.the more u sell the more u convince people with advertising and it goes on.
now back to durability many don't stay with the same phone after 2 years most of the time these phones in question reach a terrible state after 2 years. we take it everywhere risks of accidents are very high and we tend to get bored quickly because phones keep on increasing their specs.nearly every year a new important tech is added to phones..like bluetooth appeared out of nowhere, why would someone still keep his infra red phone.the d500 i used, i was fully satisfied and it fell many times.so i don't question samsung's durability anymore when simple phones like the 1100i by nokia are getting mad after less than a year and that phone i treated it well.no scratches on it the screen plastic protection is still like it was brand new but what went wrong?something went wrong inside it(talked about it in a recent post).trust your stats if u want, it's ur right but me i trust experience and observation.
Samsung should not worry because Nokia is not making 8MP phone because they already have the Carl Zeiss optics, only the VINTAGE, nothing less.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970nokia guys can't get over fact that their love has just middle end range out and has not 8mp high end even like a project,a step behind as always nokia been so nokia mass cry and bite at the moment,that's all and i won't be talking about famous nokia bilt ''quality''

1. Nokia - 25.30%
2. RIM Blackberry - 13.40%
3. Apple - 5.30%
4. Sharp - 4.10%
5. Fujitsu - 4.10%
Do you know why? Smartphones are use by Smart people, and if your Smart you wont buy Samsung c",
Do little research for those who disagree.
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2008you're Crazy man . Nokia and SE must be go home . Samsung much better than than nokia ... moreI'm not crazy because I'm part of the 99% regular consumers who wants the best value devices. and the remaining 1% are the crazy ones who only thinks about specs all their life and buy Samsung, the most notorious company who idolize Durability Issues in their forte.
the front is awesome
the back is awful!, it looks so cheap but i still like this phone
Ha Ha Ha..... it's real funny reading "these reviews" below.
I was reading from the bottom up on all the crossfires and suddenly Danny came up with the question: no touch screen...???. Ha, ha, ha...
Thanks for the entertainment guys but hey, don't sway too much out of the topic, this is just a phone review site... that's all.

Michael Jones, 31 Aug 2008Any nokia owner of a N82 or N95 knows there 5mp camera is still the king and beats this poor 8... morethe reason the n95 is much lighter than innov8 is because nokia likes to utilise plastic in a way while samsung uses more metal. pros and cons in both ways. depends on how to look at it
