Samsung I8910 HD

Much helps a lot: Samsung equips its I8910 HD with a huge touchscreen. The display measures 46 x 81 mm. The resolution comes close to that approach, long time PC monitors was common with 360 x 640 pixels. I’m sure that also the case grows to XL-format.

The Samsung is comparatively slim with 14 millimetres in height, the complete front measures however proud 123 x 59 mm – there wide trousers are asked, you want to transport the I8910 HD in your pocket. To get the 151 grams, which brings the Smartphone on the scale. Because a large display eventually burns a lot of power and Samsung makes out with a larger battery.

Which is 1500 mAh according to the manufacturer, what our laboratory measurements have confirmed – are often the actual measured values under the manufacturer’s instructions. The remarkably good endurance, with the loose to get even with heavy use throughout the day, lies not only in the large battery, but is also good energy management.

Of them only partially the user gets something with: the display lighting is disabled completely when not in use, when calling the display as with many touch screen phones turns off as soon as the device is held up to the ear. So comes the I8910 HD on around ten hours of continuous talk in the GSM network. the typical endurance, composed from phone calls and use the other features, is about six and a half hours.

Lightweight giant umbrella

Another reason for the good stamina will be the AMOLED display technology used by Samsung, because she’s relatively low power. So, the much larger and higher resolution display of the I8910 HD needs so much power such as that of the Apple iPhone 3GS.

At the same time captivates the viewer with a good light dark contrast and vibrant colours and both light and oblique viewing angle ensures good readability. The quality of the display is already visible when mere navigating through the menu, but only during the playback of moving images really comes into its own.

Who wants to watch movies traveling regularly with its Smartphone, is hardly anything better at the moment – the addition of HD in the name stands for high definition and is program really. The display serves of course here to control the device, the front offers a menu button only the Telefonsowie.

S60 interface with Turbo

Samsung uses a capacitive display, which thus neither responds to a stylus on the finger nail, is there content with mere touch in the touch screen.

Thus handling is considerably more elegant than a resistive display, which only reacts to light pressure and requires an appropriately flexible surface. The display of the I8910 HD is, however, under stable glass, of course the usual finger fat, showing but after prolonged use of any scratches.

For a good operation, it takes not only a large touch screen, but also a clear user interface that responds to inputs without delays. Samsung relies here on the S60 menu developed by Nokia, whose touchscreen-enabled version is used in the Nokia’s N97 and 5800 XpressMusic.

Unlike the iPhone, where one is from the start off directly in the main menu: the S60 interface provides an upstream standby screen as it is common in cell phones. Is one click away so the menu and menu from the standby screen will either on the button under the display or with a swipe to the left called.

Quick Launcher for important functions

The advantage of standby indicator: The I8910 HD offers quick launcher for important functions, and access to the basic settings. Click on the clock leads directly to the alarm clock, click on the name of the current profile to the selection of all profiles of the environment. In addition, upcoming events or alternatively which display Samsungtypischen widgets can be. Here, the surface react consistently fast and with minimal delays.

To quickly reach important contacts, Samsung provides an elegant function: pushing the standby screen by wiper movement to the right is a display, on which photos can be put off.

The Clou: Can the photos with phone numbers know, regardless with several. You can define any areas on the record and provided each person on a group photo with one or more phone numbers.
