Conclusion: Despite some obvious feature boobs, the Pixon is still a tidy tickler but more importantly for the mobile photography nut, a cracking camphone.
Pros: The Pixon’s touch moves may not be as fluid as the Apple iPhone 3G but the touchscreen is still receptive to your taps and swipes. But our ticklish concerns take back seat to the Pixon photographic prowess with the eight megapixel shutterbug taking vivid colourful and printable snaps. Its suite of detection mods also work well (unfortunately smile mode doesn’t blot out the miserable buggers). Equally impressive is the handset’s video capture skills, shooting dailies i...
Cons: As a leading camphone, the absence of a Xenon flash is mystifying. Its dual LED is too hit and miss to be consistently effective in low lighting conditions making this Xenon no show even more galling. Similarly, Samy should be sent to the sin bin for not supporting A-GPS for a quicker sputnik fix and shown a red for ditching Wi-Fi.
Excerpt: Samsung’s latest entry into the touchscreen phone arena offers a whopping 8-megapixel camera. Is this the all-in-one camera phone you've been looking for, or is it all pics and no punch? What we like The Pixon is an attractive device that looks and feels more like a compact digital camera than a mobile phone. There’s a handy shutter button on the side for quick access to the camera and an automatic lens cover – something we’d like to see on all camera phones.
Excerpt: There was a time when hearing about an 8 megapixel mobile phone camera would have inspired a look of disbelief and awe to the average mobile consumer, now it’s pretty much a ‘ho-hum’ syndrome. Nevertheless, for the photo buffs out there who like having a good camera in their mobile handsets, Samsung’s M8800 Pixon may just be the one for you. But truth be told, this is how it really fared.
Conclusion: In conclusion the Samsung M8800 (Pixon) is an attractive stylish piece of kit packing a big punch in the form of an 8 mega-pixel camera. The phone has some great features and the clear and responsive touch screen allows for quick and easy navigation as well as text input. The phones’ picture quality is not perfect and may struggle to match many 8 mega-pixel digital cameras currently available on the market however that said a combination of the Pixon’s camera and video...
Conclusion: For your audio pleasure, there’s SRS (Surround Sound System) Virtual 5.1CH, DNSe (Digital Natural Sound engine) with Bluetooth 2.0 and USB 2.0 for shuffling files on and off the phone. Samsung’s new Pixon M8800 phone camera is scheduled for a France release around the middle of October with Europe and Asia following sometime after. as for pricing, we can only offer a Gaelic shrug.
Conclusion: Samsung has chosen the right direction for development of their touchscreen phones. The experiments with the Croix interface were not successful so the company had to follow the trends. Colors were added to the menus, but neither the software nor the functionality of F480 was finely designed. First the OMNIA, and now with the Pixon, everything is changing.
Pros: Great video playback capabilities, 8MP camera with good quality, Quality music player, Good overall functionality
Cons: Weak web browser, Poor flash, No color schemes, Not a smartphone
Summary: As far as call quality is concerned, the M8800 is nothing to write home about - it compares quite favorably to other Samsung-branded phones and puts up a tad below average volume level. The vibro alert's strength is quite average
What can I say, I really like the M8800; but first things first. As you probably remember, I didn't have any warm feelings for the Samsung F700, the offering this whole line-up started with.
Summary: The Samsung Pixon is most like a digital camera and a phone merged in one – perfect for photographers! But as well as the stunning 8 megapixel camera, The Samsung Pixon has a sleek design, a 3.2 inch beautiful LCD touch screen with ultra-high resolution and a super-fast 7.2 mbps 3G web connection so you can upload all your favourite snaps. This Samsung mobile is a super powerful handset.
