Now that I'm on my 3 week on using my Jet, I will now give it an 8.5/10. Battery performance had improved a bit over time; setting Brightness to automatic instead to off and set to 1 actually makes the light dimmer compared to when it's set to 1. Though I still wish battery life would last up to 3 days. Before it was just below 24hrs. Now, it's a bit over 2 days.
I haven't upgraded my firmware, though; I have learned to live without the cut-copy-paste features. And even when using the panning and zooming features in some settings turn out jerky when it's on landscape, I'm still truly satisfied with Jet.
Pls,say me..which is gud?.. corby pro or S8000 Jet...?
Am confused .. am thinking abt messaging only,which wil b gud?either pro or jet?plz answer me..

About the camera freezing ... you are wrong .. I had the same 'problem' ... turns out that you can just hold the unlock button and it will unlock in camera mode ..
Bottom line is ... you can still lock the phone in camera mode and it looks as if it's frozen ... unlock it with the butotn on the top right and you are back in controllable camera mode. ..

Disappointed With Je, 08 Jan 2010Farzan the real thing is that if you realy want to buy a phone which should worthwhile to then... moreI disagree with you on 1 phone , that is the Iphone ... Ya , I do admit , when it comes to app and OS , nothing beats it but Iphone 3GS sucks ...Bad battery life , the casing crack easily , 3.2 mpx ? ( that is so outdated ) and unless u get jailbreaker , u cant transfer file thru bluetooth .... I'm sure alot of 3GS users faces the same problem and agree with me ... I would prefer OMNIA2 over any HTC anyday coz i personally feel its better and if u wan a touch-flo interface , get it installed . Dun get me wrong , I'm not saying HTC is bad , its a good phone but I would prefer a multimedia hp with WM in it so omnia2 is my choice . Better sound , better camera and with 16million colours (65k effective) , pic and movies do look better ... Performance side , its not as good as a HTC HD but i would gif it on par with TYTN2 . But that is my opinion
Hi, I bought this phone last Novemeber. I wanted to make sure I tested it well before writing my review. I think the phone is good for the price you pay. It has Wifi and GPS which is something you don't normally get on phones this cheap.
I've listed some good and bad points about the Samsung Jet to help you decide whether it's the phone for you:
* Easy to switch on/off bluetooth and wifi (via widgets)
* Camera autofocuses and takes nice photos, also has a flash
* It's a nice size, not as big as other smart phones like iPhone
* Has a standard earphone jack to fit most earphones
* The back of the phone looks awesome with the red stripes
* The phone can run multiple apps at the same time
* There are useful widgets such as facebook, youtube etc
* It is easy to upload a new photo to facebook, picasa, etc
* When typing a text message, you can turn the phone landscape to get a full keyboard.
* Plenty more good points, but will take ages to list them all
* When using the camera, if you try and lock the phone without first exiting the camera app, the phone freezes, and the only thing that unfreezes it is to remove the battery or get someone to phone you. If you don't do either of these things, you can wait a minute or two before it unfreezes
* The vibration is very weak. I normally keep my phone in my pocket, and put it on vibrate with no sound. But i find that i don't feel the vibrate, so have to use sound now.
I have enabled g.p.s in administrative options.
but it is asking for rout 66 file.
I updated with pc studio but when ever i click on update, after downloading data the phone restarting, and restarts. But even after restart it is always taking update again and again.
But i m unable to get rout 66 software.
...... confused !!!!!!!.........
better buy nokia or s/e much better software implimentation, who needs a fully featured phone if u cant even use it, this phones nowadays gives too much features that the phone obviously cannot handle, marketing gimmicks i should say, samsung and LG this are the phones u should stay away or else be ready to be frustrated..
