Interface:

As mentioned, like the G810 the INNOV8 also runs on Symbian S60.  It runs the latest version (3rd Edition, Feature Pack 2), just like Nokia’s flagship N96. Samsung has added its own graphic themes, so you can change the style of the interface to be similar to the other models of the series. Naturally, this only changes the phone visually and deep within it remains the typical S60 smartphone, which is not a bad thing at all.

Phonebook:

As we’ve covered in other S60 device reviews, we find an excellent phonebook with multiple fields, and now with a large picture on an incoming call. When searching it makes no difference if you input first or last name for the system to look for since the results you get include them both also.


When adding a new contact you are provided with the “basic” fields, but with the “Add Detail” function you have almost no restrictions on the number of fields and you can add a lot of phone numbers. We also like having the option for adding a given field several times, for example we are able to record the numbers of three phones all as mobile.

Calendar

There are no surprises in the organizer, and as you’d expect from a smartphone it has all the bells and whistles. In the calendar you can add four types of notes (appointments, notes, anniversaries and tasks) and there is a field for time, alarm and others. You still have an unlimited number of alarms, notes, calculator, unit converter as well as a file browser. The built-in dictionary lets you translate from English to Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, Italian, Russian, and vise versa as well as from Ukrainian to English. The INNOV8 comes in 8 and 16GB variants, both of which are allow for further microSD expansion.
