Audio quality

Being able to listen to your favorite tracks is one thing but playing them properly is something completely different. It is therefore vital that a high-discontinue device such as Samsung G810 have fine audio output quality. Besides, its main rival - the Nokia N95 8GB is really failing to deliver in that department, so it's a welcome opportunity to earn some points.

We were surprised to see that the G810 results weren't the best Samsung can pull off. In fact it is completely identical to what Samsung G800 was capable of. Now, don't acquire us wrong: they are still very fine and outdoing most handsets. However, we have seen a few Samsung phones perform better than that and we are wondering why the top-of-the-shelf G810 isn't as gifted. This of course may change in the final version of the handset.

Anyway, the results are here to see for yourselves that even at these early stages Samsung G810 is a talented enough musician. In case you want to learn more about the test itself, click here.

Samsung G810 has a tad worse frequency response than Samsung U600


Picture gallery is good, but not impressive

Samsung G810 lacks the 3D rotating gallery of Nokia N-series smartphones and we find this somewhat disappointing. With the G810 we were only left with the list view for displaying images and videos. Not that it makes any improvements to functionality but sometimes it's the interface that makes the difference.



The gallery lacks the 3D rotating view of the N-series but is otherwise equally functional

Other than that the gallery is good. It allows viewing pictures in both normal and full classy screen mode. Once you pick a picture you can zoom on it for greater detail. The actual zooming and panning thing is quite fast, as should be in a multimedia handset.

The gallery offers fine file-managing capabilities allowing selection and sending of multiple files. In addition to that, the smartphone has the usual file manager that does a very fine job. It allows filtering files according to the memory used as well as marking, moving, copying single or multiple files at a time.

There is also an Application manager to hold care of the installed applications on Samsung G810. It is very familiar, consistent across Symbian S60 3rd edition devices. Its purpose is to haged track of the installed and removed programs on you phone and facilitate uninstalling of unwanted programs. It does that job pretty well too.

Regretfully, the Samsung handsets have no feature similar to the "Search" application we found on Nokia phones. This means you have to spdiscontinue a small extra time organizing your files and applications, unless you want to discontinue up in a mess. Anyways, there are a bunch of third-party applications, available for download that can do this job.

Another thing we are missing is the WLocal Area Network (LAN) wizard plug in which greatly facilitates using the Wi-Fi. It makes connecting to nearby hotspots a piece of cake. Instead with Samsung G810 you have to do a bit more work, navigating through a couple more menus. This application is also available for download but its compatibility with Samsung G810 is not guaranteed.
