Review: Samsung G800

 

Like a Bentley Azure, this luxurious silver slider is a European import fit for a pimp. Sporting sleek lines, glitzy trim and a roomy (110...

3x optical zoom. Video editing includes time code. Built-in effects work with video (including negative). Smooth operating keypad. Versatile image editor for subtle color and contrast tinkers. Java support for Google Maps

Puny Xenon flash. Laggy shutter. No GPS. Useless red-eye remover. Multishot and Mosaic functions only snap measly 60KB images. No standard 3.5mm headphone jack

Samsung SGH-G800 - silver (unlocked) review: Samsung SGH-G800 - silver (unlocked)

 

The Samsung SGH-G800 has a high-quality 5-megapixel camera, a wealth of features, and decent call quality.

The Samsung SGH-G800 has a disappointing Web browsing experience, and its flash was rather dim.

The Samsung SGH-G800 does a lot of things right, but a few underwhelming features left us wanting more.

SlashGear Exclusive : Exploring Samsung 5MP’s G800 Camera Features

 

Curious at first, having never even owned a compact digicam never mind a cameraphone before, I took one for a ride. I was glad I wasn't handed a 2-megapixel point-and-shoot model but rather Samsung's G800, which aside from a cellphone has a modest...

Samsung G800 review: Camera with a phone

 

It seems Samsung are really stepping on it in the 5 megapixel cameraphone race. In a stark display of audacity, the G800 is pitched as a digicam that can make calls. We usually deal with gadgets that are the other way around but we've been eager to...

5 megapixel auto focus camera with 3x optical zoom and xenon flash ; Large 2.4" QVGA 256K color display ; EDGE and 3G (with HSDPA) ; Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP support ; Comfortable keypad ; Stereo FM radio with RDS ; Stylish design

Bad display processing ; Weak sunlight legibility ; Very slow memory card reading ; No standard 3.5 mm audio jack ; Volume/Zoom key is very hard to press ; Quite chubby

Review: Samsung SGH-G800

 

In this review we test out Samsung's SGH-G800 cameraphone. The G800 is Samsung's most camera like handset to date, and sports exotic features, for a phone, such as 3x optical zoom, a Xenon flash, and face detection.

While the G800 does not support instant messaging, SMS, MMS, and email are covered. The email application supports both POP and IMAP based email accounts, and has a number of settings for retrieving only a certain number of messages and retrieving...
