Its perfectly normal for a lithium-ion battery to deplete within a day or 2 the first weeks you use it, but mine works fine now, ive got it 5 months.
and adjusting some settings might help too, turn off 3g/dual-mode/umts, turn off accelerometer, turn on power saving mode..
sath, 18 Mar 2009oh and one more thing.. since i bought it and put the sim card in i have a flashing envelope ... moreYouve probably got text messages on your sim card, erase those and it should dissappear..
anybody try n85 charger yet? nokia charges work full speed and I might be wrong but it seems n85 also got micro usb charge port.
oh and one more thing..
since i bought it and put the sim card in i have a flashing envelope at the right top corner. my sms memory isnt that full and i cant get rid of it.. any ideas? ty in advance
hey ya all. i recently bought i8510 just a week ago and im thrilled with the features it has on it. basically cause it happens to have also a n95 nokia in the familly i noticed that the whole menu is copied from the nokia plus the submenus.. which i personally dont find it extremely bad as a concept :)
though i have a major disadvantage on the function of the phone. i write like 5 sms at the beginning of the day after a fully charged night period and the battery drops instantly on level 3. if i talk for more than a minute n less than 4 then its drops to level one!!! it just my phone or have u guys noticed that the battery is a crap?? im a samsung user for the last 4 years and i have a previous clamsell model that the battery never drops dead no matter how often u ll talk or sms and u need to rechange only at the end of the 4rth day!!!!!
please pass me on ur feedback since i need to get soome answers.
These are the 2 firmware files for the i8510 at that russian site...........which one do I use? I am in Holland and have Dutch model.
mehedi, 18 Mar 2009can any one say how loud is the phone?Sound quality and loudness is excellent coz it has DUAL speakers and Samsung Dnse 2.0 technology

Is there such a thing as a manufacturer warranty for innov8? I bought mine online and the 1st owner bought it in UK,I live in the Philippines and I was charged $25 just for the firmware update.

I actually brought it to samsung center earlier and ill get my phone back in 3days. they said they will just update the firmware($25!!!) which should be free since the firmware update is available online... it just doesnt work.
GPS works at lightning speed in default navigator and Google Maps..... Within 20 seconds it gets connected
Shane, 17 Mar 2009Hey guys, I'm an avid nokia fan, and have been for a long time, but I just have one major prob... morehi mate, innov8 is solid as a rock. go check out some reviews for the innov8 in regards to build quality and the choice will be simple. I think theres a couple reviews comparing the innov8's build quality to nokias n95 and innov8 wins easy.
hope that helps
total rubbish, i had this for only 6days and it that time a had to charge it every night it turned itself off about 100 times and the lcd kept on flashing for no reason
Hey guys, I'm an avid nokia fan, and have been for a long time, but I just have one major problem with nokia phones, and that's the build quality.
Basically my question is about the N85 vs Samsung i8510 INNOV8.....
I'm a heavy texter and I tend to drop my phone quite a bit so I need something fairly durable. The mexapixels dont bother me a whole lot because there's not much diff between 5mp and 8mp.
Which one should I go for??
