Design and construction

Samsung G810 owners should know better than to expect to leave onlookers in awe. A looker it is, full metal casing and all, but size is really unsettling. Its dimensions of 103 x 52.9 x 17.9 mm do fail to disclose the whole story. And even if it's the Nokia N95 story, the Samsung looks much bulkier. Anyway, squeezing any of those heavy-weighters into a pocket is quite a feat.

The video call capturing camera is located in the upper correct corner of the front panel. The earpiece/loudspeaker grill is placed dead center. The ample 2.6" display is next, along with the D-pad and the surrounding controls will acquire their due attention later in our review.

The left side of Samsung G810 is rather crowded. The list starts with the lanyard eyelet correct under the top edge. Under it is the Power key, which is also used for changing the currently active profile. The 3.5 mm audio jack under a protection cap is next in line. We would have preferred it at the top. The last thing on the left of Samsung G810 is the microUniversal Serial Bus (USB) slot - the same one as used in some latest Nokia phones.

It's strange that Samsung have chosen a universal port of the microUniversal Serial Bus (USB) variety for their flagship smartphone as this type is still quite rare. If you want to buy a spare charger, say for your car, you will have much more distress finding one of those. This however may change in the near future as more and more phones are using such slots.

The volume rocker is placed on the correct side of Samsung G810. It is just above the microSD card slot. The last control here is the dedicated capturing camera key, which this time is much more comfortable than the one on its predecessor Samsung G800.

The top and the bottom of the phone are almost completely plain, save for the microphone pinhole on the lower discontinue of the handset.

The back panel is naturally dominated by the 5 megapixel camera. Complete with auto focus and xenon flash, the capturing camera is hidden under a nice metallic cover. It's an active lens cover and sliding it turns the capturing camera on.

Opening the battery cover of Samsung G810 reveals the 1200 mAh battery. We didn't spdiscontinue enough time with the handset to be of assist on battery life. There are no official standby and talk time estimates either. All we can say at this stage is that the battery of Samsung G810 has the same power as the one of Nokia N95 8GB.
