Samsung i8510 INNOV8

Another handset that features the hallmarks of attractive phones but falls to be alluring. The INNOV8 does include some good design, a 2.8 inch QVGA display seems a huge on a handset this size and the keypad features an extra row keys for dedicated shortcuts, but the colour scheme of varying shades of gray is dull and the tin battery cover looks like plastic.

The INOOV8 is an easy handset to use and sports all the sports, plugs and fittings that could hope for a high-end handset. The right hand side is camera town with a dedicated camera shutter key, the microSD card slot and a switch for navigating between camera and video mode and opening the gallery. The volume/camera zoom rocker is on the opposite side above a 3.5mm headphone socket. The screen is sharp and clear with great viewing angles, but isn’t as bright as other phones and is near impossible to view under sunlight. The standard navigation key layout is added to by two extra shortcut buttons and an optical mouse jammed into the middle of the five way navigation button. This mousse takes some getting used to and is sometimes troublesome when moving through the regular menus, but is a godsend when browsing the web. The INNOV8 is a 8 mega pixel cameraphone that are already cornering the market and the most recommended featured balanced camera phone. Samsung i8510 INNOV8 also uses the microUSB port for charging, which allows you to transfer data and recharge at the same time

* Sizeable body

* No xenon flash

* No screen auto rotation in the main menu and homescreen

* No office document editing out of the box

* No smart dialing out of the box

* No FM transmitter (which may be nitpicking though)
