The Samsung Innov8 Blogger nite

I was invited by Daniel, aka Young Upstart, to the first Samsung blogger event at their Vivocity Samsung flagship store. It was a casual event since most of the bloggers knew Daniel before he joined Samsung.

There was no press release or product for us to try out. The emphasis is on building relationship. And it was well executed. We were given a short presentation on the Innov8 and follow by a simple photo contest. Basically, we have to go around Vivocity and take 3 photos on what inspires us about the Innov8. The 3 best entries will walk away with a Samsung Innov8. Woohoo!
We were given 30 minutes. Some of us choose to take all 3 photos in the store while others went outside to take photos. Then comes the problem. Traffic jam at the printer. There are 4 photo printers, but due to some memory card format issue, not all can be used. But Daniel was there to help out with the printing so it wasn’t that bad. Once done, we pasted the photos on the noticeboard and did a short presentation on our inspirations.

But I didn’t win lah. Else I will be posting lots of photos using the 8 megapixel camera. Which makes me wonder, is that a phone with camera features or camera with phone feature? Hmmm…. Anyway, here is my didn’t-managed-to-win-anything photos.

From left to right:
Photo of Information counter to show that the Innov8 is all about information on the go.
Photo of namecards to show that it is also a business phone with business reader.
Photo of Samsung logo close up to show that the Innov8 has the characteristic of a Samsung phone.
After the event, we went over to Brotzeit for a few rounds of beer. It was a great event. Thanks to Daniel for the invite. And thanks to Samsung for the wonderful evening.


  1. I don’t like the quality of photos taken by phone cameras. The small sensor in phones cannot perform well in many indoor places, which ironically is where it’s used a lot for on-the-spur pictures.
    The megapixel race is driving consumers’ attention away from image quality by falsely stereotyping that more megapixels = better.

  2. pkchukiss: Agree that high megapixel doesn’t mean good quality. I’ve seen many times where a 3.2 megapixel cameraphone beat a 5 megapixel flat flat. It also depends on the lens and focus etc etc.
    Too bad I don’t have a sample photo from Innov8. The photos not bad leh. πŸ™‚

  3. Sylv: No problem. πŸ™‚
    Which reminds me…. I should demand Nadnut lend me her Innov8 for a few weeks since she also use my card reader. πŸ˜›
