Compare i8510 Innov 8 Deals

The Samsung i8510 INNOV 8 in dramatic black packs a lot of features in its smooth, slider body. Pride of place – and making full use of the 2.8-inch screen – is an 8 megapixel camera with auto-focus, facial and smile recognition and a range of options including an incredible panorama mode. For panorama, you click the shutter button once and the i8510 instructs you to move the camera in a certain direction following an orange box - it then stitches a 180-degree picture together, so you don't even need to press a button. It also shoots slow-motion video at up to 120 frames per second.

Another plus is the standard 3.5 mm headphone jack, though as it is the side rather than the top, it is less convenient.

For Web interaction, the i8510 offers fast HSDPA and Wi-fi. You can download software, such as the Opera Mini browser and mapping software such as Google Maps (to accompany the in-built GPS with geotagging). There is a music player and FM radio – and the ability to play DivX movies.

A generous 16Gbytes of on-board memory can be enhanced by up to 32GB of microSDHC card storage. Connectivity to other compatible devices such as a laptop can be via cabled USB or short-range wireless Bluetooth.

Battery life is rated at around 400 minutes’ talk time, depending on whether you are using GSM or 3G, and 330 hours on standby time from a full charge.
