Samsung i8510 review


Samsung's fully-featured phone impresses with its 8MP camera

8-megapixel camera ; A-GPS Sat Nav capability ; 8GB or 16GB memory, microSD slot ; FM radio, HSDPA ; Wi-Fi ; Symbian S60 smartphone capability ; DivX support ; Good music player ; 3.5mm headphone jack ; Good additional web-based apps

Large body and heavy build ; LED flash used rather than xenon flash ; No touchscreen control ; Have to pay for full Sat Nav

Fabulously featured multimedia smartphone, with a terrific 8-megapixel camera one of the highlights

Samsung i8510 mobile phone


Samsung's latest all-powerful handset promises to match the might of the Nokia Nseries with a host of features, but can this multimedia gadget, that's also a phone, impress? We get more than just dialling to find out. There was a time when mobile...

HSDPA and Wi-Fi connectivity, DivX support, Symbian S60 3rd edition interface

D-pad takes some getting used to, big, we've seen no real advantage to the 8 megapixels over 5 megapixels

The Samsung i8510 offers so much that, like the Nokia N95 and N96, it becomes a handset that you know you've got in your pocket. It's big and bold and therefore unlikely to be for everyone, but more worryingly for the size we can't see the benefit over...

Samsung i8510 (Innov8)


Samsung's i8510 phone is brimming with features and it can take decent pics.

The i8510 is certainly packed with features and it handles well. It is large for the pocket, but the image quality of its camera is splendid. That said, shots aren’t exponentially better than you'd get with a top-grade 5-megapxiel cameraphone, so don't...

Samsung i8510 Innov8 Review


The i8510 is Samsung's answer to the Nokia N95 -- a do-it-all phone that's as mean as it looks. There's an 8-megapixel camera, 8GB of on-board memory, HSDPA and Wi-Fi.What we likeUnlike most Samsung…

Samsung INNOV8 testi


G eçen birkaç sene içerisinde cep telefonları ile dijital fotoğrafçılık birbirleriyle öyle iç içe geçti ki artık bu iki kavramı birbirinden ayırmanın imkânı yok. Dijital kamera artık cep telefonun bir parçası haline gelmiş durumda. Bu durum birkaç yıl...

Samsung i8510 review -


The eight-megapixel camera has set the benchmark for all future camera phones

It?s on the bulky side and strikes an uncanny resemblance to the Nokia N95

Samsung i8510 INNOV8


Comedian Louis C.K. was spot on when he mused how everything is so amazing and nobody is happy. Take a moment to consider the i8510, one of Samsung's latest eight-megapixel smartphones.

Lots of codecs, including - wait for it - DivX! 2.8-inch screen excellent for playback. Intuitive photo/video editing suite. Equally-intuitive navigation. Automatic lens cover. microSD slot good for 16GB (enough for aspiring Scorseses to go epic). All...

Side-mounted headphone jack makes phone harder to pocket. Optical control pad is a tad sensitive. Most bogus: metal shell retains enough scratches to fill a DJ Shadow album. A little on the clunky side. Most bogus: flash needs to be brighter

Samsung Innov8


In addition to a beautiful styling and elegant touch screen the Innov8 is packed with multimedia features including an 8 megapixel digital camera. The Innov8 can also record and play high quality QVGA video and comes standard with 16GB of storage.

An 8 megapixel camera and 16GB storage is deal closer.

The software and hardware aren't well integrated, the UI lacks something.

Samsung - i8510


For quite a while now, 5 megapixels has been the ceiling for mass-market cameraphones. But that has all changed with a flurry of mobiles from Sony Ericsson and LG offering a staggering 8 megapixels. Samsung is ...

This is a somewhat chunky mobile phone but the trade-off is that it has a large screen and is brimming with features. The 8-megapixel camera has its ups and downs, though. If you really need a cameraphone with so many pixels, take a look at all the...

Samsung i8510 Innov8 Review


We now have our first 8MP mobile phone but how will it compete with the others? Introduction Like Matt mentioned in his unboxing post the Innov8 was the first 8MP camera phone sent to us but what he didn't mention was that this was the...
