Samsung INNOV8 Review

The  INNOV8 once more resembles Nokia’s S60 models very much. In contrast to them however, there are no automatic email settings for the most popular email servers. This reminds us of older phones and not a top 2008 model, but it is an inconvenience not a dealbreaker. Moreover, as we mentioned above, the keyboard is not the most comfortable one for writing longer messages.


For quite some time the S60 web browser been one of the best. Although a few steps behind the touchscreen leaders in user-friendliness, it is still very pleasant even for frequent use. Pages visualize correctly and are relatively easy to navigate through using either the d-pad or the optical mouse. Shortcuts, such as pressing 8 to activate the Panning mode, make the browser even easier to navigate. As found in newer S60 phones such as the Nokia N95 8GB, flash objects are visualized directly in the browser, though large flash files can choke the browser. Most notably, this means that you’ll be able to watch YouTube videos.

You can access the Internet via Wi-Fi or the cellular  network. INNOV8 is a global quad-band GSM phone, but it only supports the European (900/2100 MHz) 3G bands.

How is that a "9" average? Anyone can see if you take the averages, it is a "8.25".. still, I know you aren't going just by averages, but other models have higher numbers overall, and still score the same..

I was about to buy this one, but the photos do look disappointing (although other reviews I have seen had better pictures), maybe this specific handset had some problems. Maybe someone can help me, would this phone be able to play movies in avi format? The format plays perfectly on my computer with DivX Player, but will this phone play them also? Thank you.

Install coreplayer and then you can watch avi file coded by divx and xvid

This was a silly review. I have this phone and can tell you the sound quality is the best between any phone I have had before. ex. N95 8B, E90, E71 iphone 16GB. The phone design is awsome! only problem I have is software and firmware support from Samsung. No updates?
