Samsung M8910 Pixon12 review: By the dozen

 

The Pixon12 is about to be three times lucky. But any way you look at it, it's nothing short of a dozen. Not that we wanted to make that much fuss, but a bunch of 12 megapixel pictures coming from a phone are always worth it...

3.1" 16M-color resistive AMOLED touchscreen of 800 x 480 pixel resolution ; 12 megapixel auto focus camera with LED and xenon flash, 28mm (30mm effective) wide-angle variable aperture lens ; Object tracking auto focus, geotagging, image stabilization,...

Video recording output isn't on par with the still camera performance ; No smartphone capabilities ; No stereo speakers ; No 3.5 mm audio jack on board (but a 3.5mm adapter is supplied) ; Smart dialing only works for numbers, not contact names

The original M8800 Pixon was dragged down by the lack of some key features and it seems Samsung chose to treat their top cameraphone with more respect this time. The Pixon12 boasts a complete pack of features, including Wi-Fi and SatNav software to go...

Samsung M8910 Pixon12 preview 2: Some sequels are better

 

Following our photoshoot teaser with the M8910 Pixon12 yesterday, we are ready to invite you on a second date with this promising cameraphone. This time we hope to show its other side - the one that doesn't...

We are sure the both flashes will be temptation for many of you especially when the xenon-featured phones were almost forgotten in the last year. The huge count of megapixels plus the wide-angle lens and tons of camera features are something camera...

Samsung M8910 Pixon12 preview 1: Firing the first rounds

 

It's only been a day since we went through the review of Nokia N86 8MP - the first cameraphone with a 28mm wide-anlge lens. And we already have the Samsung Pixon12 on our hands - the first 12 megapixel...

On the other hand you are more than welcome aboard to see how Samsung have been treating us, regular users, and what they have to offer with the Samsung M8910 Pixon12. And bear in mind that they even have a rumored Samsung M8920 in the works - a 12...

Samsung Pixon12 M8910 Review

 

About a year ago, Samsung introduced the world to one gadget that aimed its attention on photography - the Samsung Pixon. Roughly one year later, the spotlight is set on the Samsung Pixon12 M8910 to become a true all-in-one gadget. Its 12-megapixel...

Samsung Pixon 12 Mobile Phone Review

 

Samsung has made giant leaps over its competitors in the mobile phone industry by introducing the first ever 12-megapixel camera phone.

Expert review by:

Samsung M8910 Pixon 12

 

Closely resembling last year's M8800 Pixon, the most obvious improvement is in the camera area. The 12 megapixel camera aims to be every bit as good as a dedicated digital camera. Samsung have concentrated on giving the Pixon 12 a high-quality lens to...

Samsung Pixon12 (M8910) the world's first 12-megapixel camera phone with full-touch screen. The Pixon12 comes packed with a host of functions which enable consumers to easily capture, browse and share their images on the move all on a brilliant...

This is especially true when taking photos in broad daylight, as the flash does not kick in and you wouldn't know if a photo was taken or not.

Samsung Pixon 12 review

 

Do more megapixels make for a better mobile?

Great OLED screen ; Top notch camera ; Improved touchscreen ; Better texting accuracy ; Xenon flash and power LED

Extravagant price ; Poor battery life ; Clunky internet ; No 3.5mm jack ; Resistive touchscreen

A nice enough effort from Samsung, but it's not going to break any sales records, despite being a world's first. We're all for innovation, but the world's first 12MP cameraphone seems to have forgotten about the phone aspect of the alliance in some...

Samsung Pixon 12 mobile phone

 

Described by Samsung as the "world's first 12.1 megapixel camera phone," the Pixon 12 mobile phone was actually beaten in Australia by the launch of t...

Good build quality, 12-megapixel camera with Xenon flash, mechanical lens cover, AMOLED display, Wi-Fi, GPS, HSDPA

No 3.5mm headphone jack, not a smartphone, resistive touch screen, widgets could use some work

Samsung's Pixon 12 is a great camera phone but lacks in a few other areas. If you're purely after a camera phone then this will do the job, but if you're looking for more of an all-round smartphone, the Pixon 12 fails to deliver.

The Samsung Pixon 12

Great OLED screen, Top notch camera, Improved touchscreen, Better texting accuracy, Xenon flash and power LED

Extravagant price, Poor battery life, Clunky internet, No 3.5mm jack, Resistive touchscreen

There's also a bizarre carry case with a hole cut out for the lens - seeing as you can't see the screen and can barely hit the camera key, we're pretty sure this is just for show
