Here are the text, MMS and e-mail messages. For the last one you can add more than one account, but unfortunately, it doesn’t include automated settings for the most popular web mail servers like Yahoo! or Google.



Connectivity:

Samsung G810 is a tri-band GSM (900/1800/1900 MHz) and single UMTS (2100 MHz). This means that you can fully use it only in Europe and Asia.

Just like other Symbian S60 phones, you’ll have a very good browser at your disposal. WebPages load quickly, without lag and navigation through them is quick and pleasant. You also have the handy Page overview (Pan View), zooming in and out, text shrink and history of visited websites. Overall, the browser is very useful and effective.

Local connectivity can be established via cable or wirelessly with Bluetooth 2.0 or Wi-Fi. In addition, the phone supports A2DP profile, which allows it to wirelessly send stereo music.


GPS:

Samsung G810 is equipped with A-GPS, but comes with no navigation software, so to use this function, you need to install such on your own. The phone has preloaded a simple application, which displays only your current coordinates and speed or time and distance passed since the beginning of the trip.

We were very disappointed, by the time it took the GPS to get a lock on our position. Even with pre-downloaded satellite position data, the cold start took several 15-minute attempts. The worst part is that we were able to get lock once, which only confirmed our assumption that the function is useless.
