Samsung G800 3G Phone Review

The adorable Samsung G800 is a superior 3G phone which comes with high quality camera features. The G800 is from the same family as the hugely popular Samsung G600 & both handsets are defiantly eye catching mobile phones but with different built in capabilities. The G800 is a slide opening handset which comes with a large colour screen complete with easy access external keys. The screen on the Samsung G800 is slightly larger than the screen on the Samsung G600 as the screen measures 2.4 Inches in size & comes with a high 240 x 320 pixels screen resolution. The screen is high quality as it needs to support the high quality imaging features on board this beautiful phone. The 3G phone comes in a silver metal coloured casing or in a sleek black coloured casing which adds sophistication to this camera focused handset. The Samsung G800 is a competitor of other 5 megapixel camera focused handsets including the Sony Ericsson K850i & the Nokia N95 which all have 5 megapixel camera but that is whether the similarities end, they are all unique in design & other built in features.

The built in camera lens is situated on the back of the handset & comes with a protective lens cover which covers the lens when it is not in use to avoid damage & scratches occurring on the lens. The camera is a 5 megapixel camera feature complete with 3 x optical zoom which is a high quality zoom which provides a beautifully clear zoom for the user to enjoy. The camera comes with a xenon flash & an auto focus which makes the photo results so clear & well focused for the user when they are taking a shot. The user will find that the camera features on their new Samsung G800 are as good if not better than their standard digital camera, it truly provides impressive results. The camera feature allows the user to record moving video footage as well as capturing still photos with their 5 megapixel camera. The G800 comes with photo & video setting which allow the user to capture & record just the way they want to.
