IFA 2007 Report: 5 megapixel Samsung SGH-G600 cameraphone

5 megapixel Samsung G600 is another Samsung phone prominently displayed at IFA Berlin. It’s Samsung’s answer to Sony Ericsson K850i Cybershot and Nokia N95 camerphones, at least where imaging function is concerned.

Apart from the camera, Samsung SGH-G600 is not that much different from any other Samsung slider.

I had the opportunity to play with the camera on Samsung G600 and can say that for a cameraphone it works pretty well.

The camera on Samsung SGH-G600 is hidden beneath the sliding cover. Before taking pictures, you have to open the slider, which felt pretty strange at first. But you get used to it pretty fast.

Samsung G600 camera is easy to access and use, has a dedicated shutter keys and various modes for taking pictures. These include normal mode with autofocus, panorama, mosaic mode with visual effects and multi-picture mode with up to 15 pictures taken in quick succession. The quality of the pictures themselves is pretty similar to the one you get on Nokia N95.

Overall Samsung SGH G600 is a solid, well deigned phone with really good camera features. The only thing that may be lacking is the support for high speed 3G data networks.

    Next time you are at these events can you take some pictures with the camera phone and Bluetooth them to yourself for posting later on?

    I actually did that :) .

    Took quite a few shots with G600, Bluetoothed them to my phone and then uploaded to my laptop.

    The problem is I forgot to download the folder with these pictures to the portable drive I took to work today.

    I’ll upload G600 sample pictures tomorrow or later today, when I’m home

    Even though I Bluetoothed about 15 pictures taken with G600 to my Nokia, looks like I lost them somewhere between the phone and my laptop.

    Here’s only two G600 made pictures that I have left:
