Samsung i8510 INNOV8 review: Roaring V8 engine

09 December 2008
Samsung INNOV8 is back to our shop and quite ready to strut its stuff again. Not so long ago we saw it in heavy duty cameraphone action, it's now time to explore the whole package. And there's...

To people's queries:

@ OOOoooOOOooo: Yes, innov8 gathers some dust under the screen, we can get it cleaned at Samsung Service Centre,

@ ASAP: Innov8 doesn't suffer much lags, but radio is horribly laggy. Otherwise, its a speedy phone

@ Anonymous: INNOV8's zoom is pathetic. In video, even 2x zoom reduces the quality. And Image zoom is even bad.

@ Samsung lover: I have used this phone since 1.5 years, and I'm NOT satisfied... Please get any other reliable handset.

@ hpesoj: Yes, they're slightly low on durability, and paint quality too. Just maintain them good and they'll live...

@ Qasim: No, its not touchscreen, but its directional keys (Up, down, left, right) are touch enabled. You just have to "swipe" your finger above them, in any direction...

I'm a proud owner of this phone.. though i don't really know this model until i went to the hp shop. Very user friendly. not that hard to learn. The pictures are great. The video is fantastic. got GPS, not to mention the 16G built-in memory. I'm glad I picked this one from my other option C905

HTC diamond 2 for instance, has a very useful and capable zoom. How about the INNOV8 ?

i have noticed many ppl complaining about dust gathering under the screen. Is it true? If so, are there any ways of getting the dust out or do you need to change the entire screen?

i am planning to buy either a gd900 or a i8510. i am leaning towards the i8510 bcause it has many cool features. May i know whether it is durable and does it suffer lag?
