Samsung i8910HD Review

Samsung i8910HDAlthough mobile phones with 8-megapixel or more in terms of resolution are becoming commonplace, the Samsung i8910 HD is a stunner of a handset. Boasting serious credentials as a multimedia smartphone handset, in particular that vast AMOLED technology screen. At 144g, it's a bit on the heavy side when compared to some rivals, but that extra weight certainly shows in the build quality. The first thing you will notice about the Samsung i8910 HD is of course the huge screen. Measuring 3.7 inches, it's noticably bigger than almost every other smartphone available. It has good resolution too, 360 x 640 pixels, and that AMOLED technology makes it sharp and vibrant in almost all light conditions.

Samsung has certainly not stinted on the specifications with this phone. The handset runs on the latest version 5 of Symbian S60, which gives access to the vast array of applications. You have a choice between 8GB or 16GB of storage depending on the network, and there is a microSD card slot for adding further storage if required. The Samsung i8910 HD is an HSDPA device which supports up to 7.2Mbps download speed and quad-band GSM. There is also GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth too.

The camera on the Samsung i8910 HD takes great photos, helped by the LED flash and features such as face, smile and blink detection. If you are a video fan you will also like i8910 HD's ability to capture HD Ready footage at a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels at 24fps.

That large screen is great for web browsing and text entry. Entering text using the QWERTY on-screen keyboard is comfortable and there is also a handwriting recognition system, and of course the standard alphanumeric keypad if you prefer. There is an accelerometer for switching between landscape and portrait views, music playback with a standard 3.5mm jack and an RDS-enabled FM one.

The only criticisms are no Google Maps, and the slightly large size. But those points aside, if you are looking for a large screened multimedia phone, the Samsung i8910 HD would make a great choice.
