Our Samsung i8510 Review

Samsung i8510 Open

If you’re after a Smart Phone that really packs a punch, look no further than the Samsung i8510. The mere fact that the on board camera has 8 mega-pixels should be enough to get your attention, but if that doesn’t do the trick there is plenty more to enjoy here too.

Staying with the camera for a moment, the i8510 (also known as the Samsung Innov8) has a full seven types of shots that you can take. Furthermore you can also apply four different effects to those photos. The Samsung i8510 may be on the cutting edge of technology, but it can still product sepia toned photos when you need them.

The phone itself is comfortable and easy to use. It has a sliding design so the main keyboard is hidden away from view. The i8510 also benefits from an impressive 2.8 inch screen. That’s perfect for surfing the internet or admiring your ever increasing stash of photos.

The Samsung i8510 mobile phone is also ideal for those who are doing business on the move. There is an on board document viewer and it’s easy to use its internet capabilities to email people as and when you need to while you’re out. The video conferencing feature should also appeal in this respect, and there are plenty more features that are designed for the business market as well.

For those who are more interested in their music, the MP3 player is just one of several music players on this mobile phone. There is also a music library which should keep you entertained.

In short, the Samsung i8510 is a well designed and attractive phone. It certainly doesn’t sacrifice practicality in order to benefit from the overall design, and that makes it an all round winner in many people’s books. If you need a reliable and all purpose phone, the Samsung i8510 could well be the right one for you.

User Comments

The i8510's slider is a bit clunky, but it comes with great youtube viewing and uploading

Brooksy submitted on 13 January 2009

I was so glad to find that this samsung handset has flash in it. Many of the handsets I considered won't even play youtube videos, but this one's great
