Samsung G800 review

 

Are the G800's features enough to put it top of the game?

5-megapixel camera ; 3x optical zoom ; 3G HSDPA connectivity ; Good camera user interface

Quite large ; No Wi-Fi ; No smartphone operating system ; No regular headphone socket for upgrading

A great camera, but not quite as many features as we'd have liked

Samsung SGH-G800 mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

This is one of the best camera phones on the market today

Picture quality, HSDPA, screen, ability to edit photos and videos in camera

Bulky, heavy, video resolution only up to 320 x 240

Samsung has really pulled out all the stops in creating a mobile phone that is also a very good digital camera.

Samsung's G800 isn't the smallest slider in the world, but its camera is one of the best.

Samsung G800 review

 

A camphone with optical zoom is nothing new, but Samsung's G800 is the first to match 3x magnification with a 5MP lens. Is it time to throw out your digicam?

The G800 mostly makes good on its photographic promise, but feels too much like a camera and not enough like a phone

Samsung G800 review -

 

With its 3x optical zoom, xenon flash and five megapixel resolution, the G800 possesses arguably the finest camera currently on the market

The lack of a 3.5mm jack port for headphones is a bugbear and the battery life is disappointing

A perfectly serviceable cameraphone that’s worth considering if you need hi-res mobile snaps -but it’s looking on the expensive side these days. Samsung G800 is tagged with Samsung and camera phone. Select a tag (Samsung, for example) to find...

Samsung - SGH-G800

 

The 5-megapixel camera in the G800 from Samsung might have made headlines a year ago, but now it has plenty of rivals, such as the LG Viewty, Sony Ericsson K850, Nokia's N95 and N82 and Samsung's ...

The SGH-G800 is a big phone and that could prove to be its downfall. Its camera is good but can't rival a dedicated shooter, so you could end up carrying some of its bulk unnecessarily as you double it up with a high quality camera. Still, it's a first.

Samsung G800

 

Cameraphones have come along way since the early snap'n'send'n'then-work-out-what-the-picture-is mobiles. Five megapixels is now the current benchmark for any self-respecting, top-of-the-the-range UK handset with high quality camera aspirations.

5-megapixel camera, 3x optical zoom, 3G HSDPA connectivity, Good camera user interface

Quite large, No Wi-Fi, No smartphone operating system, No regular headphone socket for upgrading

A great camera, but not quite as many features as we'd have liked
