Samsung i85 Reviews
CNET.UK reviews the Samsung i85 and writes;
“The pictures are fine, but the attempts at multimedia functionality have gone a bit wrong, and changes in the electronics and camera marketplace have left the i85 way behind.”
Megapixel reviews the Samsung i85 and writes;
“Overall, I was impressed with the quality of the images captured by the Samsung i85. Photos were sharp and had good color fidelity in most photographic situations. The auto-focusing and metering systems worked well in a variety of lighting conditions to keep snapshots crisp and properly exposed.”
TehcTree reviews the Samsung i85 and writes;
“Pro: Looks and build quality, 3-inch LCD, loads of features, PMP functionality, World Tour guide, Battery Life. Cons: Average image quality, small buttons, sluggish operation, LCD blanks out in ASR mode.”
PCAdvisor reviews the Samsung i85 and writes;
“For a price and features that the Samsung i85 offered, its performance will satisfy casual shooters. Given the loss of detail and slow operational response, the Sony DSC W90 we reviewed last year is a better performer though it does not have all the bells and whistles that the i85 offers.”
Steve’sDigicams reviews the Samsung i85 and writes;
“With class average performance, pleasing image quality and a price tag around US$300 or lower, the Samsung i85 offers an excellent value for anyone who travels or those who have to have the latest “techno” gadgets with multiple functions stuffed in to one device.”
GoodGearGuide reviews the Samsung i85 and writes;
“Noise wasn’t too much of an issue at ISO 100 but even at ISO 200 it began to make an appearance. By ISO 400 our shots were quite grainy so we’d recommend sticking with lower sensitivities unless a little noise doesn’t concern you.”
