got this phone 5 days ago.
overall : satisfied (i'll post a longer review later)
my firmware is s8003DXIE3
i can browse wifi
battery life ok
but i have some more questions
1. in camera, when i press the play buttom on the right bottom of the screen, the phone don't show the pic i recently taken but it show the photo in my memory card (not the picture picture taken but i uploaded with my pc), so how to solve this one to show the taken pic only.
2. in music player, it play all the music tracks including the ringtones which i placed in the ringtone folder (so can i create a separate folder for ringtones that they will not be played in music player)
3. i found the java games but when i start the games, they got the virtual key (direction and softkeys) on the bottom of the screen. so how to remove them or where can i get full touch games.
4. i can' delete the gadgets so i can't install new gadget (so how to remove the gadgets)
thanks in advance
yes, a very important point, this phone uses its own, proprietary OS! you cannot use any apps winmo/android/apple etc.
i bought it already. i was really happy when i hv it at the first time. after couple weeks, i got boring with it. cannot install more application, hv alot of bugs with the firmware, cannot use rss feed, sometime it restart/hang during receive call, no song search for music player, bad web browser, no cut and paste...etc
i'm so regret with this phone.... i think samsung not very good with their software/firmware development if compare to nokia, SE. need learn from them.
does anyone here have the jet in the US ( preferably uses AT&T)?
does it work in the US?
horrible to the core, camera was good, but no theme change,no software download, back up service is very bad, internet hangs, do not buy it.i live to regret it, samsung horrible
they use their own OS. i dont think can install skype or fring on jet(correct me if i mistake). you can install java app only.
crap phone had fr 2 and half months and the software had issues the bluetooth stopped working and when ever i had to share a file via bluetooth it kept giving the same error sending failed or connection failed. returned the set to the retailer and its been over a week the company ppl under whose warranty samsung jet is say they have software issues.bloody hell why do they sell there shit when the no it has problems and yet investing millions of dollars on research shame on SAMSUNG am very dissapointed.
Joseph, 21 Jan 2010Yes. you could set it to anything you like. ringing w/out vibrate or with vibrate. or no rin... moreThanks Joseph. last week i survey the market price for samsung jet is around RM1700 and the SE AINO is RM1800. Anyone have suggestion which is better in terms of less lag problem, bugs n battery life? Thanks in advance. : )
Crazy Phone lover, 21 Jan 2010Hi sleep walker very glad about that pls help me clear my doubts abt this great phone battery(... moreHi Crazy phone lover,
I am still a sony ericsson fan for the music quality that their handsets provide. Simply put there is noc comparison between SE and samsung on audio quality.
But samsung jet has some nice little useful features that we might frequently use like:
3.5 mm audio jack for using any headphone,
great video playback of divx ,
excellent 5 megapixel camera,
super video recording,
good touch screen,
superior flash ( even though it is LED - really lights up the room ),
faster charging thru micro usb port and faster data transfer ,
2 gb memory card,
great call quality and very loud speaker,
beautiful back cover, decent sunlight legibility,
fantastic isolation from noise, deep bass and super audio quality thru the bundled ear piece from samsung.
But battery back up isnt too great. 2 days on moderate usage.
I use it for listening to music, viewing videos and of course calling.
But battery seems to improve after each drain and charge cycle.
I didnt find any games or other applications which can be easily installed on it. Didnt use the internet yet on this phone nor the wifi.
Browsing of photos through photo browser is a bit clumsy. We can view only in landscape mode.
Couldnt find voice dialling. Scrolling thru lots of music tracks is a pain ( badly needs a search option to find the exact track/music one is looking for ).
Enabling GPS navigation requires a hell lot of steps.
No official firmware available at the moment.
Although the earpiece provided with the handset provides ample isolation from niose, it simply falls down from my ear all the time ( may be a problem with my ear's design :) )
W995 or jet
I think if ur looking for atouch phone, better choice would omnia 2 which has windows 6.1 or 6.5 version plus all functionalities of jet.
W995 has a really attractive design. Sexy slider no doubt. But has a few drawabacks like no flash, no micro usb, few video codecs supported, m2 memory card (only used in SE handsets ). But SE sets are a class apart on music.
But if u r ready to live with the limitations of jet of not being a phone with too much customisations go for it as it has some really cool features.
buy the omnia 2 instead of this, ull enjoy it specially if u install spb shell, its like a new o.s. in ur phone ull love it
samsung jet sucks, i own it already. the application to install in jet very limited. dont buy it or you'll be regret soon.
