As for the interface, dunno what’s up with Samsung providing this crap UI & theme on top of the S60… & there’s no news of whether Samsung will allow installation of apps! I hope these can be disabled by hacking the C drive! smile_wink

Hi, you are saying that the INNOV8 doesn't have front camera, but it has one to make the video calls.

Thanks for the precision! Yes, the INNOV8 does have a front camera! :)

There IS a front camera. Look at the last pic, top-right. That's the cam and light sensor.

This phone is quite a killer. Better than the measly Sony Ericsson's G900 which I intended to get. Not now!

However, 8MP camera means nothing. Never judge camera performance via megapixels. More doesn't mean better quality. It's just a marketting gimmick.

Apart from that, it has some nice specs!

Yep, I didn't notice it until Anonymous' comment! :P

The problem with more MPs is that the phone takes an enormous amount of time to get ready for a shot, making you miss the crucial photo! :)

& for the Samsung, seeing that there are bundled apps, I'm not sure that there is full support for 3rd party apps like in other S60 devices... :(
