This phone is awesome. I've owned it for 2 weeks now. Tons of application you can download for it. Lots of great features like the 8mp camera, the video editor and the photo river. The contacts list and the calendar has all the things I needed. Wifi is cool. GPS is a huge plus.
I bought this unit in the Philippines, and the only downside is, I didn't think the users manual was complete enough both the online or the printed quick guide version. It did discuss all the basic features, but I was looking for some hints on what the different icons meant. I'm new to the symbian interface, so this would have helped me a lot. For example, the message box that blinked at the top of the screen.
There are apparently bugs in the firmware. Maybe am just doing it wrong, but i can't seem to organize the files in the image gallery. And the settings for the camera would not save. Am hoping samsung releases a new firmware very soon.
I bought this handphone today from Nokia 5800 to Samsung I8510 INNOV8 so far good will be back with more info soon.......
to all, thanks for the comments.
so for the .avi movies, i just convert them into mp4 files and i should be able to watch movies on the i8510.
i plan to upload some tv shows onto this phone. just good to have some movies handy while you wait for the bus etc...i am not super picky about the quality of the movie, as long as i can watch a movie on the i8510.
laughing, 28 Apr 2009will this phone play .avi files that i have downloaded from torrent sites? thanks.the answer is no. ive tried it and the resolution of those avi files from torrents sites is too high.
download 'super' (type it in google) and downsize the resolution, but keep the video in AVI.
and 3gp is never the best format!
laughing, 28 Apr 2009will this phone play .avi files that i have downloaded from torrent sites? thanks.no...u need to convert it using the software(pc suit cd) given with the phone during u bought it. converting in mp4 also can read the file by this phone.but i think it is better u convert it into divx file.if u use avi file without convert it before, of course your phone can't read the movie.i mean can not support file format. this is because the resolution download file is not match with the phone.

No you have to convert the AVI files to MP4
Lots of free programs to do that.
will this phone play .avi files that i have downloaded from torrent sites? thanks.
Hello to all ,i am owner of i8510 cool phone , just one stupid question -why only nokia has remote on headphone ? I do bike driving 100km per day to change song have to stop bike ?
I've had my phone since march but it seems to be causing me problems now. It gets stuck on the start up screen when i try to turn it on. I've looked online to find codes to key in and all I get is a flashing "ALL DOWNLOAD" on a red screen. I also noticed that it said SysAp: Feature not supported before it died on me. It did start working again at one point after i had drained the battery and kept playing around with it, but stopped working again.
Does anyone know what this means and what I should do?
I'm also from Canada so my phone was imported and the phone is not listed on the Canadian Samsung site so I could get support.
does anyone know if this phone supports emoticons
had a customer who just gets a blank text, but when he sends same text on to another phone it shows

I am thinking of buying this phone but i am conserned that maybe it will get slow. the last symbian i had was the n80 and when it was loaded it was very slow. Alternatively i am thinking of buying the s8300 ultra touch any insight from users who own this phone would be great thank you
