Samsung G800 review

W ith the introduction of the Samsung G600 in July 2007 everybody was convinced it would take a while for Samsung to introduce a new five Megapixel camera mobile. How could we get it so wrong, because at the end of October 2007 the Samsung G800 was already available for checking out at a Dutch dealer event. The SGH-G800 is unique in its class thanks to its three times optical zoom and face detection. According to Samsung the G800 has been equipped with a camera that can fully compete with a regular digital compact camera. I think we can leave that remark for what it is. Samsung also claim that the Samsung G800 leaves all mobile phone competitors far behind. Is it true what Samsung is trying to make us believe? And are they able to fulfil the promises they made? You can read it in the following LetsGoMobile Samsung G800 review.

There is not a lot to comment on current mobile phone designs and of course it is also a matter of personal taste as well. Looking at the Samsung G800 from the back it looks like the spitting image of a regular digital camera. A cover, sliding open or closed, is protecting the lens and the xenon flash. The housing of the SGH-G800 feels solid and has a fine hand-fit. When we take a closer look, only the buttons for answering and ending a call reveal that we are dealing with a cell phone.

The Samsung G800 has been equipped with a 3.7 Volt Lithium-Ion battery. According to the specifications the battery offers a standby time of 370 hours and a talk-time of over eight hours. This time is accurate when the cell phone is exclusively used for calling and sending SMS messages. When the integrated camera is frequently used, battery time drastically reduces and the cell phone has to be recharged after several hours. This is a vast disadvantage when you’re on the road a lot making extensive use of the Samsung SGH-G800’s other functions.
