Samsung i7110 Pilot Test

The expectations are big, because to judge by the securities data, the Samsung i7110 pilot has the makings of the about phone. It offers an open operating system, equipment fed up, a great OLED display and a form factor that is more than appropriate for the functionality.

The Samsung plays big at the topic of entertainment and multimedia. So it has a 5-megapixel camera with face detection, turn videos in VGA resolution and plays all popular audio formats. A headphone adapter for the standard jack plug is included.

More in the chapter “Balderdash” programs include image processing in mobile phones, a smile and blink detection function. These are at most nice gadgets. The Samsung for mobile little writers who don’t need an alphanumeric keyboard, is almost suitable for business because it opens Office documents and manage E-Mail accounts.

The suffix “Pilot” suggests another talent: Autothetical is also the Samsung. So it has this otherwise everything you need for the Navigation system in the car along with a GPS receiver and Route66 software (see below post “Navigation”).

Exemplary processing

The car also his bright OLED screen will benefit from him, that while sharpness provides not the last ounce, but plenty of contrast and very strong colors. At least in theory, of course the i7110 on Bluetooth SIM access, to what extent are the often prevailing compatibility problems already in the grip, remains to be seen.

The i7110 would be no superclass-Samsung cell phone if its processing was not excellent. The partially metal surfaces make it to a real technology lust ball haptic. However, it weighs a lot with 128 grams and is so hard in the Pocket.

The operation is not quite meet the quality overall impression: the menu is first getting as typical S60 3rd Edition version for upgraders. The menu itself has the for some dubious reputation: who knows it, gets along so well, everyone else will have trouble at first.

What does the measurement laboratory

In the middle of the four-way-keys bother doing more than it helps, the touchpad, so it can be but turned. The proximity of the soft keys below the display is not switched to its two neighbouring handles: with fat fingers, you must practice here at least not resistant to go next to it.

But that will hardly deter the fans of the chic Samsung cars. The overall positive image continues inside on the Board of the Samsung, which has felt the publishers own measuring laboratory on the chip.

The result is an impressive stamina, which is thanks to energy-efficient OLED technology not at the cost of the display. The opulent screen is turned on, the battery underpinning around ten hours duration stake games on the phone with the necessary electrons.

Intense beyond the current UMTS networks are possible around eight hours of continuous talk and standby times over two weeks are also a number.

All around really good

Hardly less pleasing were the acoustic measurements, which certify the i7110 a good sound. The same image in the antenna: The transmission and reception quality is roundly good. The fairly low connect radiation factor by 4.23 arises together with a moderate value of SAR (currently best value 1.61, worst: 16,01).

Conclusion

The result table of the Samsung i7110 pilot from a little surprising testimony: it’s all good. Aside from the little need of getting used to, but ultimately good handling, it does no goof, sick offers facilities and put a mature performance in our laboratory.

While the contents of carton sweetens the purchase, because the i7110 comes with cradle for the car window, 12-volt charger and good navigation software. Compliment, the expectations are fully met.

With Route66, the Samsung i7110 pilot is well equipped. The mobile navigation software runs reliably and colourful. Although the version Mobile 8 of the program recently due to high costs of data by satellite. 1’s have been denounced. In the test, the licensing of the cards worked but easily.

But if you buy cards through the integrated online shop, must watch: who clicks on “Synchronize licenses” too rashly or blithely buys a card, runs the risk to download several 100 megabytes over the cellular network – without appropriate data plan, which is very expensive. You should necessarily do that with the provided desktop software.

Contrast, perfect presentation

Otherwise, Sunshine there is vain: the guidance works out very well thanks to the high-contrast map. Because also the map display was perfectly adapted to mobile displays, everything seems features very experienced and sovereign – like lane or speed Warner are missing however.

The operation works well: liquid clicking through the menus, there is hardly any waiting time. However, the functionality is very high, so that the overview should be difficult especially newcomers.

Accurate full-text searches

Fast and accurate full-text search is a piece of cake: just a few fragments of the destination address type and mobile taking the desired place 8 in a few moments. We hold: mobile led 8 very safe, the voice acting is friendly and clear. Convinced the pace of work and presentation.

The sometimes cumbersome route selection criticized in previous tests was the current trial version with a map of the third quarter of 2008 not so dramatic: there was no blunder, Mobile 8 still does not in any case but found the really optimal path through the city.
