Samsung G810 (SGH-G810)

 Samsung G810 Discontinued
11th February 2008

The Samsung G810 is a Symbian smartphone with a 5 megapixel camera, GPS, WiFi, 3G and HSDPA. Pitched directly against the Nokia N95, the SGH-G810 is an impressive looking device. Unfortunately, its announcement coincides with Nokia's news of the N95's successor, the Nokia N96.

Despite arriving a little late to this competitive marketplace, there seems to be plenty of features that make the Samsung G810 an interesting proposition.

 Samsung SGH-G810 One key feature is the camera - a 5 megapixel unit with autofocus and a Xenon Flash, the SGH-G810 also boast 3 times optical zoom, a very rare feature in a camera phone. There's no word of video capture resolution though - and for many people this is a key feature, although the G810 does allow video clips to be directly uploaded to YouTube.

Samsung have also been a little vague about the G810's GPS capabilities. It certainly has GPS, but quite what navigation application is included is not clear. The SGH-G810 does support geotagging for photographs, so each picture will have its location coordinates saved in the metadata for future reference.

The display is a 2.6" 240 x 320 pixel display, very similar to the original N95. Also, as with the N95, the G810 lacks a touchscreen.

Because the Samsung G810 runs the Symbian S60 operating system, you can add more applications to it at a later date. There is quite a wealth of Symbian applications on the market, and this is one of a very small number of Symbian handsets from the Samsung stable.

Bundled software on the SGH-G810 includes support for Google Search, Maps and Google Mail, plus a multimedia player.

This is a 3G device with HSDPA support, as well as GPRS and EDGE data. Again, Samsung's specifications are a little vague, but it does appear to be a tri-band GSM phone with UMTS 2100 MHz only. The SGH-G810 has USB 2.0, Bluetooth 2.0 and supports microSD memory cards. There is also a TV output and standard 3.5mm audio jack socket.

There is no definitive word on pricing, but we understand that the G810 will be available from March.

This looks like an interesting handset, but as is often the case with Samsung, the launch has been marred with a lack of clear information. We can't tell you exactly how the SGH-G810 compares with the N95 and N96 because of this, so if features such as mapping and video capture are important to you, then you should check carefully before purchase.
