Excerpt: Samsung SGH-G800 has a 2.4 inch screen with resolution of 240x320 pixels and it supports 262k colors. It is pretty vibrant with good photo and graphics quality. You can adjust the brightness, backlight time, and the color, size, and type of the dialing font. The menu interface is intuitive and simple and I loved the Samsung’s cool pop-up menus. I had mixed feelings about the Samsung SGH-G800 navigation array.

Conclusion: As every single phone, the G800 also has its strong and its weak sides. The first impression it gives is excellent, a solid slider with stylish design and high-quality build. But beside the look, people are interested in the functionality, and here the G800 isn't what we would like it to be.
Pros: Stylish design and high-quality build, Optical zoom, A battery that can last
Cons: Mediocre performance in low light, Low-res video recording
Conclusion: Now we have tried to put the cameraphone contenders to test in situations that they are likely to encounter in real life. We've also tried to make the best shots they are capable of. We didn't end up with usable photos 100% of the time, but we've concentrated only on the ones that are worthy of entering in this shootout.
