Review: Samsung G800

4 April 2008
  • Excerpt: Like a Bentley Azure, this luxurious silver slider is a European import fit for a pimp. Sporting sleek lines, glitzy trim and a roomy (110 MB of memory) interior it also features standard options like a microSD slot good for up to 4 GB.
  • Pros: 3x optical zoom. Video editing includes time code. Built-in effects work with video (including negative). Smooth operating keypad. Versatile image editor for subtle color and contrast tinkers. Java support for Google Maps.
  • Cons: Puny Xenon flash. Laggy shutter. No GPS. Useless red-eye remover. Multishot and Mosaic functions only snap measly 60KB images. No standard 3.5mm headphone jack.

  • Summary: One of the most anticipated mobile phones entering 2008 would no doubt be Samsung’s G800, with a unique selling point of being the company’s first 5.0-megapixel heavyweight to include a 3x optical zoom. We'll come right out and say it first.

31 January 2008
  • Summary: The Samsung SGH-G800 does a lot of things right, but a few underwhelming features left us wanting more.

  • 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

Mobile Review
31 October 2007
  • Summary: The reception quality put up by the G800 is in line with other Samsung-branded devices. The ringtone volume is quite decent, as it can be heard in various environments. The silent alert is average strength-wise, no significant improvements have been made here. The G800 is certainly a mixed bag.

Samsung G800 in-depth review -

Mobile Choice UK
12 December 2011
  • Summary: The Samsung G800 is not a big phone and its footprint is actually almost exactly the same as the hugely popular Samsung U600. However, it is a lot thicker, simply because it houses a top notch camera with 3x optical zoom.
  • Pros: With its 3x optical zoom, xenon flash and five megapixel resolution, the G800 possesses arguably the finest camera currently on the market
  • Cons: The lack of a 3.5mm jack port for headphones is a bugbear and the battery life is disappointing.
