Samsung SGH-G810

Posted: , by PhoneArena Team



Samsung G810 utilizes the same software as the one in Nokia N95 8GB, Symbian S60 3rd Edition with Feature Pack 1. This operating system is also used in the 5-megapixel Nokia N82 and the multimedia N81. There are some minor differences in the Samsung’s interface, but they don’t change its overall look.

A multimedia menu has been added with shortcuts for quick access. Unlike the one found in Nokia, it doesn’t have an attractive interface and is simply a list with three options: music player, RealPlayer for watching videos and FM radio.


The number of contacts that can be saved in the phonebook is limited only by the phone’s free memory. For each one can be added several numbers, email, address, assistant and others. In this aspect you’ll have plenty of options. Typically for the Symbian OS, searching through the phonebook is done simultaneously by first and second name, but when dialing a number you can’t search for matches.

Inside this menu you’ll find the standard Symbian S60 organizer functions like calculator, clock, file manager, notes, unit converter, Adobe Reader LiteEdition 1.5, Quickoffice and calendar.

The latter offers a choice between four types of events (Meeting/Memo/Anniversary/To-do), location, start and end times, alarm, recurrence and sync. You can view the calendar by day, week, or to display only the entered events.

Quickoffice is an office package, which can open Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents. Unfortunately only ones made with Office 2003 are displayed and for Office 2007 support you’ll have to pay $70 for the full version. With Adobe Reader you can view PDF files, but it takes a while to load the pictures in the larger ones.
