Samsung M8800 Pixon has declared the start of a new-found generation of ground breaking camera phones from the company. Following on the footsteps of highly rated Samsung i8910 HD as well as its most important rival in this class namely the LG Renoir KCR910, this device has set itself up for a nice little showdown. Therefore, it was only on the expected lines that it will come jammed with features, if it is to survive the stiff competition awaiting it.

Size wise, the pixon is pretty much par for the course for such a suite of specifications. A dimension of 107.9 x 54.6 x 13.8 mm means this is to some extent on the bulky side to transport around, however the plastic casing ensures its weight is kept down to a reasonable 122 g. A large, 3.2 inches display greets you first up, navigating on which has been made effortlessly easy thanks to the aptly located shortcut keys. These four tap icons on the home screen provide an easy way to access corresponding applications like widgets, messages, phone book and keypad. The accelerometer sensor on the other hand adjusts the screen automatically, depending upon whether it is held horizontally or vertically. The TFT technology supports 256 K colours which results in a bright, vivid display of images, videos and overall features.

Being promoted as a mainly camera mobile phone, the Samsung M8800 Pixon comes with an exceptional music support as well. Music fans can be happy as the headset supplied with it supports a 3.5 mm headjack. This means an individual can use the standard headphones of their choice, as an alternative of being tied to the comparatively less impressive mobile phone headphones. It possess a sound media player which plays a number of audio codecs including MP3/eAAC+/WMA/AMR. Not to mention, a couple of related features further boosts the musical experience. This includes SRS (Surround Sound System) Virtual 5.1CH support as well as its Speakerphone with DNSe (Digital Natural Sound Engine). Hence, a gala time playing your best-loved music is always on the cards.

Now let us discuss the main quality of the cell phone, which is its innovative camera. At 8 MP, it is certainly one of the most technologically cutting edge feature, if not the most innovative one. A high resolution of 3264x2448 pixels further improves the clarity of images. Autofocus helps users give the majority of camera focus to their subjects rather than the surroundings, whereas LED flash ensures one can have confidence that quality will be ensured even under dim light conditions. And just in case you though this is all that there is, go on to find still more features in the form of Geo-tagging, face, smile and blink detection, image stabilization, and wide dynamic range. Another high point about this handset is its video recording capabilities. Boasting of a capability to shoot at WVGA 30fps and QVGA 120fps, be sure to have the quality of your recording easily surpassing that which is mostly shrugged off as being a mere 'Camera phone shoot'. In fact, viewers would be oftentimes caught puzzled in deciding if the video have been recorded using a mobile phone or a dedicated, digital video recorder.

In terms of its functionality, a lot more still remains to be discussed as the impressive list just goes on and on. Document reader, large memory, 3G support, Messaging, games and what not! It would not be an exaggeration to state that Samsung M8800 Pixon users would find themselves part of a happy lot who refuse to part ways with their handset under any circumstances.
