what do u really want? a mobile phone or a good quality camera? battery life will drain very fast if both thing is going for a heavy user...so is not that really practical at all to have so high pixel camera at a mobile phone.
it's would be good if Samsung release the P860 early in East and south-east asia soon.
Many fans including me long for korean-made phones in the korean market. However, they are not suitable for GSM or 3G network. What a pity...
they already have a cdma version of this phone out in korea for about a year now, so i think it will be good. i liked the other cdma one they had with the optical zoom, good optics make a camera not how many mp it has...
Inresting phone, but still not up to par with any other companys like Sony Ericsson, or Nokia, 1st does not have the 3G/UMT net work service or capabilitys, 2nd if its gonna have a 16m screen and a 5mp camra how big is the phone gonna be almost as thick as a v902?, 3rd what's the battery life on the phone gonna be? probably horrible cus of the screen and the camra just gonna eat all the power up. So in all aspects this phone is just not practical and just some what of a gimick.
well i think karens got a point, depending on how the n90 does nokia will probably put carl ziess optics in every "revolutionary" camara phon so when the ig 5 mp comes around the optics are sure to be nearing an actual camara and as for the screen, samsung takes the buiscuit on that.
No, this is not true. The Closest rival of the P860 will be Sony Ericsson K750i, Nokia N90 and Sharp 902. None of these match the camera quality of the P860. But, shots taken by my P860 (CDMA version) at night seem to be abit grainy and had abit of noise. Which my k750 and 902 test phones both had. at day time, this phone produces maximum results and can be compared to some digital cameras.
I think that this is an awesome phone considering the hardware part. I mean a 5mp camera is unheard of and 16 m screen was unimaginable on a phone. But Comparing samsung 262k, 1.3mp phone with nokia's equivalent it is noticed that the image quality was much better in nokia. So im sure that the nokia 5mp will be better so just wait for it, however 16m screen is surely gonna hike the price of this samsung phone by leaps. Dont think it is worth the buy at the moment. Im gonna wait for nokia to come out with something similar and compare so i can make an informed decision
i dont think this phone's gonna be release in the uk but i hope so it's a super phone the upgrade to the famous p500 loads of features on this one but i really cant say about it i only heard about this phone i'm a shop owner and i only can gather information about it so lets wait and see it seems to be sexy and feature rich ??????
I think Samsung set the bar too high...like c'mon!-16M(it's not a TV!) and 5 MP Camera?!.It will be releash in about a year minimum,and this phone will be HEAVY.like 350g,min.
Does anyone know how much memory has this phone and when exactly it'll be in Europe ???
This phone has been out for quite a while in South Korea, called the SCH-S250, but does not work on gsm networks, for Korean uses CDMA networks. When it was released in South Korea, Samsung said that it was only going to be released in Korea, but I guess they changed their minds
This phone really exists ? Or is a prototype ? It's too good to be truth . . .
While 5mp may be a bit of overkill you also have to look at the screen resolution you're getting in this thing, 16m colors. That's insane. All I want to know is what is the GSM release date and how much am I going to be paying. Though the release date matters a lot more than the price. Also, will it come factory unlocked.
Another thing that Samsung should have done was to use a easily available SD or mini SD card. MMC card is hard to get and expensive making memory media hard to get.
I'm happy with my Sharp 901iC with a video recording capability with timer like a DVD/VHS deck.
I truley think that a 2MP camera phone is the maximum, because you can only put a small optics onto the hanset. To utilize the full feature/resolution of a 3MP or more you would need a high quality lens (fine optics) otherwise it's just a overkill. Putting a 5MP CCD with a limited optic is not going to produce any better picture than a 2MP camera phone like the 902SH.
if you go to mobile review hey have a review of the cdma version and they say the pictures are good but not 5mp good~ N90 will take deeper depth pictures and looks much better
