Samsung i8510 review

 Review: September 2008  
 

Last updated April 2010

Rating: 3 stars

In a nutshell: The Samsung i8510 was Europe's first 8 megapixel camera phone.



 


Review

Samsung are certainly venturing into new territory in 2008 with the i8510 (also known as the Samsung Innov8.) Not only is this Europe's first 8 megapixel camera phone, but it marks a change for Samsung, with the release of their first mainstream Symbian smartphone.

Let's talk about the camera first. At 8 megapixels, it pushes decisively beyond the 5 megapixel resolution of its nearest competitors. But megapixels aren't everything when it comes to digital cameras. Fortunately, Samsung are one of the world's leaders in digital cameras and they know what they're doing here. The i8510 moves camera phones closer to the kind of user interface that dedicated camera have. A dedicated button activates the camera, opening the lens cover, and toggles between camera, video and the gallery. There are plenty of settings for advanced users to play with, such as panorama, smile-detection autofocus and blink detection. The basics include a 9x digital zoom (no optical zoom sadly - see the Samsung G800 for that) and a dual power LED flash. This flash is good enough at close range, but cannot match the brightness of the xenon flash used in the Sony Ericsson K850i (although the K850i comes with a host of problems as discussed in our K850i review!) It's debatable which camera phone is truly the best, but the i8510 must surely rank in the top 5 currently. The video camera is also noteworthy, as it records in high resolution and at up to 120 frames per second, which means that you can play back in slow motion if you like.

The other most interesting thing about the i8510 is the fact that it runs Symbian 9.3 with the Nokia Series 60 user interface. This makes the phone's UI remarkably similar to the Nokia N95 (although the i8510 runs the latest version 3.2 instead of the buggy 3.1 version used by the N95.) Samsung have tweaked some options of course, but this is essentially a phone that any Nokia Nseries user could pick up and use without a second thought. It looks like N95 users will have a real choice when they come to upgrade - should they choose the Nokia N96 or the Samsung i8510?

It isn't only the UI that looks very much like that of the Nokia N95. The whole phone does! It's a chunky slide phone that weighs even more than the N95, but is several millimetres thinner. It'll be too heavy for some, but if you like solid phones, we think you'll like the feel of the i8510. The slide is smooth and the keypad feels good too, although the touch-sensitive navigation key is bound to annoy some users (although its sensitivity is adjustable.) One of the benefits of a large phone is that it can fit a large LCD display, and Samsung have definitely made the most of the available space with a high-resolution QVGA display measuring 2.8 inches across, and displaying 16 million colours. Once again, it matches the capabilities of the N95.

The Samsung holds its own when it comes to music playback too. Its music player handles all popular formats (MP3, AAC, WMA) and includes OMA digital rights management 2.0. Equipped with an FM radio RDS and 3D surround sound DNSe 2.0 technology - Samsung's proprietary digital natural sound engine technology used in its MP3 players - the music capabilities live up to our expectations for a high-end phone. The media player supports DivX playback too, which is just as well since the huge 8GB of built-in memory is enough to store several full length movies! Alternatively it will hold 2,000 songs in MP3 format (more if compressed.) If that's not enough, you can add a 16 GB microSD memory card to expand the total memory to 24 GB - enough for 6,000 songs! The i8510 also has a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, so you can plug in your own high-quality headphones.

Like the N95, the i8510 features A-GPS satellite navigation, with mapping software from Route 66. You can also download free software such as Google Maps. The GPS supports geo-tagging of photos.

The i8510 is a good platform for accessing the web. It's equipped with a HTML browser and uses intelligent zoom and switching between landscape and portrait modes to display web pages optimally. The touch-sensitive scroll pad works very well when browsing the web. With HSDPA enabling download speeds of up to 3.6 Mbps, you can access web pages rapidly, and download music and video directly to your mobile. In addition to web access, the phone is able to connect via USB 2.0 or wirelessly via Bluetooth and WiFi. You can use the TV-Out connection to view photos and video directly on your TV. It's also possible to stream content wirelessly to a compatible PC or laptop using WiFi.

The i8510 also has a 3D graphics accelerator card making it into a mini-Xbox! We haven't played the games, but there are two free embedded games - FIFA'08 and Asphalt. You'll find more Symbian applications pre-installed, or available for download.

Battery life is not brilliant. Although the phone is equipped with a heavy duty battery (the phone's size and weight are there for a reason!), with so many gadgets to play with, you may find you need to recharge every day if you're a heavy user.

The i8510 is clearly designed to go head to head with the Nokia N95 8GB and the Nokia N96. Does it make the grade? We think so! Apart from its weight and the issue of the touch-sensitive navigation key, the Samsung i8510 matches or beats the N95 8GB. The Samsung has a better camera and a better video camera. Does it beat the N96? Well, the N96 has more memory, but the i8510 has a better camera. W'd choose the Samsung, but the N96 comes very, very close! But be aware - all three of these phones use the Symbian operating system, and all three suffer from typical Symbian problems - slow UI, random freezing, shutting down and software glitches.

Had this phone on 3 for over a year and its been one of the best phones i have had, as its been utterly reliable. I use my phone as my main camera out of convenience and have been very impressed with the results both inside and out, with colour, exposure and focus all excellent. video is not quite so good but still given acceptable results. The screen is bright and clear if just slightly too small for web browsing. Downloaded opera 10 which is very good. Music player is good and pumps out plenty of volume and a rich sound. I like rock music so a tinny sound would have disapointed me. The symbian OS has been reliable if a little on the slow side, especially if more than a couple of apps are open. Had no problems with dust under the screen, but this week i did get sand in the camera and the lens cover is stuck open. remains to be seen if this is fixable. Build quality is excellent, this phone has had a hard life but has shrugged most of it off very well and is still looking good, and all the buttons working and the slider feels as good as it did on day one. It was probably a 5 star phone when new but even in todays company it deserves a solid 4 for quality, reliability but lack of speed. Upgrading soon and think an android phone is the way to go if the hype is right. Thinking x10 or desire for good camera, music and screen.

Just an update following my comments in November 2008 a few weeks after first getting the phone. It worked perfectly until last June when it froze and wouldn't reboot. By that time the dust was getting into the screen but otherwise no problems. The phone was replaced under warranty in 3 days (thank you Carphone warehouse) and as I sync it with the computer on a regular basis, none of my data was lost. The new handset is now 8 months old and looks brand new, no dust and no problems. Upgrade time coming up. what next?

How I loved this phone! I used it for not quite a year and if only it had had a Xenon flash I would still be using it and probably until it would fall to bits! My previous phones had been Nokia N-series ones and this one works in the same way - only better. It made for a fantastic all round personal organiser and I loved it for that! Schedules, tasks and reminders at your fingertips and the best thing: reminders would be right 'in your face' where for somebody with my poor memory they need to be! The reason why I'm giving it only 4 stars is the dust under the screen problem. It doesn't impair things too badly but is annoying all the same. Seems like the design people weren't quite on the ball on that one! Altogether though (out of a fair few!) it has been my all time favourite phone!

This phone is an absolute piece of rubbish. I've had nothing but problems since I got it on the day of release. From the constant problems with the software meaning that the display doesn't appear when I open the phone even thought the backlight comes on, to the fact that the cheap black coating comes off in large chunks meaning that i had to spend ages removing it all to show the silver underneath just to stop it looking completely ruined. Avoid at all costs...If you're looking for something of this generation then stick to the N95 8GB black...If you're looking for something newer then the N97 or the LG-GD900 are far better.

Managed to reset it and then three weeks later it started to constantly reboot and I couldn't even switch it on. Took it back to the shop I bought it from and they "repaired" it only for the same problem to occur 5 minutes after getting it back. It's back being repaired again now and I'm not holding out too much hope. The guy in the shop said they have had a lot of problems with these and now no longer stock them.

A lot of people are talking about the poor battery life and dust under the screen. Having used a Nokia N95 for a long time, I tried the N96 but found it far too plasticky. As the Samsung felt pretty solid and I wanted to stay with a smartphone using the Symbian S60 platform. I opted for the i8510. It feels substantial and although the battery life initially was less than one day, I experimented with different themes and the battery life has improved dramatically to between 4 and 4.5 days. after 3 months the build up of dust under the screen became annoying and the Carphone Warehouse fixed it within 24 hours. All in all, it's a reliable phone with an excellent camera. I would rate the phone as 4 out of 5.

Great Phone - easy to use, nice big keypad to txt with, bright screen, okish camera, easy to use internet and great features! However, i hardly get to use the features because the battery life is shocking. This morning i went kayaking for about 2 hours. The phone was fully charged when i left. The phone stayed at home whilst i took my nokia n95 with me. the n95 had the gps on the whole 2 hours kayaking and i took about 20 pics and a quick phone call. I got home and the n95 battery - still full! The I8510 - battery had decreased by 3 bars! The phone hadnt done anything! If you need a phone that will last more than 12 hours then dont buy this phone!!!

Hi rachel. I have had the messaging problem too this is my second i8510. Carphone replaced my 1st one after too much hassle to mention. Now I am in the process of having the current handset 'repaired' by their team. The engineers say they have flashed the software but keep putting an old version on (08/2008...check yours). If there are none in stock, I am also shocked to hear I won't even be offered the N96 as a replacement as it's not in the same 'band'!! Shocking. Avoid CPW at all costs. I hope you get yours sorted as it is an otherwise really good phone for camera, vid and same as Nokia software.

This is a very good phone with extras going through the roof.

That is my only two hicups to what i think is a brilliant phone. I cant wait for the Nokia N97 tho as thats next on my purchase list

I've had the i8510 for 10 days now. Great phone, but the software is a bit flaky. I've had the phone freeze up twice in the last week, both times I was trying to get the camera started. When it freezes up, there is no equivalent of a hard restart button. I had to take the battery out and restart the phone. The newest version of the PC Suite software has a "software update" button. I've updated the phone once with this, but I'm wondering if this is an actual firmware upgrade or not. I bought this phone because it had the best reviews for it's type. I've got mixed feelings. If the phone would do what it's designed to do, with no problems, it would be fabulous. Right now, I don't trust it.

8 megapixel camera phone with 9x digital zoom, autofocus and dual LED flash bad quality. The pictures are not as good as a nokia's 5MPX cameras, even a 3.2MPX. WHY? Megapixels are not only feature in a camera, also need to consider resolution in terms of DPI (dots per Inch)most common known for printers. Samsung has a 72 DPI meanwhile Nokis has 300DPI that makes a big difference in term of quality in night shots and pics definition. If you look for a camera choose any Nokia 5MPX. As well batery is varu poor performance and need to recharge on a daily basis.

I Have had this phone since xmas (it was my xmas present =D) .. generally its good. The main downside is that the battery runs out very very quickly. if u dont mind charging it every other night. and keeping your charger with u wherever you go. The camera is amazing. I previously had the G600 and i wasnt too impressed with its camera and was a bit hesitant to get this fone but there was no dissapointment in that area. Personally i prefer my G600. The i8510 doesnt have that many options as to the g600. eg. IT DOESNT HAVE A PRIVACY OPTION. So if the phone is unlockd anyone can see your texts or use ur phone. Its a pain keeping my phone away from my parents now. It has a front camera to use for video calls.. but i cannot use it and there is no option just to use the camera without doing a video call.. wich is annoying if you wana look in the mirror!!! :) Music is good and so is the quality of videos. Ive been having problems with messaging. I can recieve texts and call and recieve calls But some times i cant send a text. It goes to the outbox and says "resend at .." which is frustratin when u cant send a text urgently!!!! has anyone else had this problem???? overall there are mixed feelings about this fone. 1.ITs very expensive (im on a O2 contract with O2 but to buy its around 500) 2.its fairly big compared to its ancestors 3.some find it very slow 4.Battery life aint so good again comparing to its ancestors (g600,d600,u600) so i wouldnt recommend this phone.

I don't have a problem with scratches on the screen and as yet have had no problems with dust, it may be because I keep it in a sock to help protect it.

Ok lets give my two pennies worth. 1st, yeah the dust is a problem, and it's a known issue, samsung have been replacing phones ( slide open the phone and look down the back you will see a small breather hole where the dust is getting in ) however use your common sense, you know dust is an issue SO BUY A SOCK FOR PITY SAKE. 2nd Battery life, yeah, yeah we know its bad but then this phone does more than just make calls using hspda speeds to surf the net and satnav and using a 8meg camera, music and video playing will drain most devices, until we all see a 3000mah battery for these kind of phones we have to accept that a nightly charge maybe required heck my n95 was EXACTLY the same. 3rd I was one of the first ones to get this phone approx 4 or 5 months ago and I have had no scratches ANYWHERE, but then I dont throw my phone on the floor and keep my keys in the same pocket and generally throw the phone on the desk after a long day at work. It is a more sturdy phone than my n95 which I have still got by the way. 4th I agree with the previous person saying about wi-fi it's an absolute piece of cake access web, select wifi connection and connect... how easy is that, and as previously stated it remembers the connection.... 5th MP3's HOW GOOD ARE THESE!!! especially with the surround sound headphones plugged with surround sound selected... try that Mr Sony!!. 6th Right enough kissing a**e this phone isnt perfect, the symbian os is the new version using feature pack 2 so dont expect all your nokia symbian apps to work... they just wont ok.... get newer versions if possible. Also HOW ANNOYING IS THAT TOUCH SENSITIVE BUTTON!!!! good job it can be turned off. Finally is there any reason samsung DIDNT include a xenon flash with this... WHY PROMOTE A 8MEGAPIXEL CAMERA AND GIVE IT A WEEDY FLASH!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway enough of this, GO OUT AND GET ONE and in 18months time buy an IPHONE 4 with video and a decent camera and one that CAN run third party apps without being jail broken....

So far this phone has the best reviews I've seen for any phone, anywhere on the internet. The one thing that keeps cropping up majorly though (apart from dust) is that the battery life is poor. At the moment I have an interim, boring, run-of-the-mill sony ericsson thing and when I use "blutooth to send/receive and/or doing any intense application, like using the camera for a long time " it REALLY drains my battery life. In fact, EVERY phone I've ever had loses battery life when it gets used. That's the point, guys! The battery is being USED! It's like everybody is expecting a battery that stays charged no matter what you do with it. I charge my battery every night. Sometimes I actually get 2 days out of it. But like I said, I'm just using a no frills model without the mod cons so what would one expect from something as feature packed as this? One day's battery life sounds brilliant to me!

Great phone really, it is big and the touch sensitive direction pad is annoying anywhere other than web browsing, but the positives are there- the camera is fantastic. Before this I had the LG Renoir, which was a customer service nightmare and the camera was worse, and the INNOV8 definitely would be a better phone- if it didn't let dust get in and sit behind the screen! It is a nightmare, and makes the phone unfit for purpose- any photos etc you try to take always has this dust in the way, which you have to try to see beyond. I have an 8 week old baby, and I bought the phone specifically to be able to take quality pics and vids of her- sadly this dust (and there is a lot of it now, 2 months old phone) really detracts from the phone and from the picture taking. Other positives are the GPRS (although again the dust detracts)the smartphone capabilities are awesome. If I could stop the dust I would love this phone, I am now trying to get Samsung to change the phone as it isn't fit for purpose in my opinion. I am sure that the nice folks at Samsung will tell me exactly where to go...!

The only thing that disappoints is a battery life(though that's common in all symbian phones) and the price range of this phone.. i paid $999 for this phone , though the converted movie quality of this phone is awesome !! i converted 2-4 movies for this phone and it works amazingly !! Divx in this phone is works amaizingly.. the another problem with this phone is - in tutorial it says u got free navigator software inside - says route 66 something, but i checked everywhere in my phone , there is no route 66 app and when i asked route66 customer service about this thing , What they say ??? that you have to pay $ 179 USD for that software !!!! we can get better GPS for car in that price..

The video playback is better than most but the codecs need an update for later divx etc, and it needs mpg support, i know mpg is old, but some videos are still in it and its a pain to convert things just to watch them. the backlight is not always friendly with other software and goes out when you need it, ie on navigation software etc, sometimes it gets confused and then wont come on, or comes on but the keyboard is locked needing a reboot if you have it on media player and lay it face down so the speakers are logically pointing up from your desk, the music pauses...... If you shake it around like say jogging, it pauses... biggst pain, its sooo slooowwww, its like having a phone from 5 years ago! when you reply to a text if you type fast it loses the first few letters and you have to start your reply again. dont think i wll be keeping mine that long unless it gets some new firmware soon to fix the sped issue. camera 5/5 but manual focus would be nice and a option to take time lapse audio quality, 5/5 build quality 5/5 firmware 1/5

Simply stunning phone. Well built, and on first impressions a tad large, but you soon get used to the size of this beauty, and compared to most mobiles the phone is the same height as most candy bar designs, but just slightly wider but you're compensated with a huge screen. Photos of this phone do not do it justice, it is far more attractive in real-life. Had this phone for a few days now, no dust or battery issues as mentioned below. Some simply excellent features, and I keep on unearthing more and more new features on this phone every day. Camera doesn't dissapoint either, it won't replace a decent digital camera if you're into photography, but it still packs in some decent features, like face detection and multi shot feature. It also takes good photos in dark situations. Music player is far superior than my I-Pod Nano as you can listen to your music with or without headphones, and with the extra memory slot, you can download plenty of music. Only dissapointment with phone was the sensitive touch pad, and I just deactivated this feature. Recommend that you download full user manual on-line as the manual supplied with phone is for quick-start and doesn't mention most the features or benefits. 5/5... Top marks Samsung

The phone seems solid enough and works the way I want a symbian phone to work but the battery and dust problems have got to me and meantime I'm using an old N70 instead.

I came to this website to read the reviews from people that own this phone before going to purchase it myself. i have now brought the handset and want to clear up some of the myths that maybe putting people off getting this phone like it nearly did me. Dust under the screen - I asked the guy in carphone warehouse about this and he said that some handsets had been returned with this problem. I brought the phone anyway and have now had it for 3 months. For the first 2 weeks i didn't dare put it in my pocket, or have it in the dashboard of my car for fear that i would fall victim like so many of the reviewers on this site. Then i thought "fudge it!". Since then i have used the phone as normal and it has even spent time in a dust filled room where i am currently decorating my house. No dust under the screen, nor usb port. Poor Battery life - this makes me laugh, mostly due to the fact that i went from owning a HTC touch diamond to this phone so i REALLY know poor battery life. My average day with my I8510 goes something like this: Alarm to wake me up - Music player hooked up to car to take me to work - Approx 10 texts, 10 minutes calls - Music home - Approx 10 minutes calls in the evening. This usage would give me 2 days of battery life. However, if i use my music player, whilst driving using my satnav at the same time and then recieve a phone call, and then go back to satnav and music, this would rinse my battery in about half a day. Unfortunatly whilst mobile phone technology has advanced no end, batteries have not. This phone has very very good battery life in comparison to equivilant handsets, and that's all the matters. Scratches easily - The build quality of this phone is immense and i've dropped it a few times now with no drama. The phone has a small scratch on the side of it (not the screen) where it was in my coat pocket with keys. My phone always seems to find the pocket with my keys in and yet this is the only damage. Difficulty connecting WiFi - LOL! You go to 'Web', Select 'search for WiFi', click the connection, Job done! It even remembers that connection and has it available automatically next time you go to 'Web'! I reliterate, this phone is awesome. The music player is incredible (i have now sold my ipod), the sat nav is yet to let me down (only downside is having to pay for the UK map), It has buttons (Touch screen is the worst thing ever to happen to mobile phones), it is built on a very stable operating system (Symbian). I understand peoples poor experiences but my experience of this phone has been incredible. Well done Samsung!
