Been using the S8003 version for the past 4 months and so far I can say if not for the lots of free applets/applications from the iphone (which I've been using for a couple of months back b4 I bought my Jet), the Jet would run over the iphone like an incoming train. The OS stability, the screen, the camera and video, the speaker,and the battery all out performs the iphone 3G- which tends to hang more.
I have owned numerous devices across all platforms and builds - the jet with a firmware update is amazing. I am going to stick with this device for quite a while...... the word 'jet' apptly describes this device :)

Jade, 01 Dec 2009Now i would add my opinion
-First of all i want to say that Nokia is creating nice device ... moreMost of the posts here, or mine at least, never said, dont buy the Jet and buy a Nokia.
Now to your points. Build quality. Take any Nokia you like and drop it from two meters high onto concrete and then drop the Jet and then come and tell us your reviews. No way Samsung has better build quality than Nokia.
Nokia phones or any other smartphone with symbian or windows OS, do NOT merely have as many problems as the JET. The jet is an impossible phone, unless you want to do functions we were doing 5 years ago. Too many softare issues, NO applications to download, way more difficult than average OS to use. Not intuitive. Too may problems when used for online browsing.
It is true that Nokia is behind in the touchscreen game. Something that I really cannot undestand. They only have a couple of touchscreen phones (different models, not upgrads, etc). But I cant wait for the time Nokia gets into this touchscreen market and starts rolling out dozens of touchscreen SMARTPHONES.
My suggestion is simply dont buy the JET. I am not saying dont buy Samsung. Omnia 2 is an amazing top Samartphone (except for its size). Samsung has other top range touchscreen smartphones. So does HTC and other companies.
If you can wait, wait until new touchscreen smartphones are announced from both Samsung and Nokia and other companies.
The Jet is not worth it in my opinion.
khalid, 01 Dec 2009hi
The web browser of jet support full flash or notjes, it supports full flash
but youtube videos arent smooth so we must wait for an update ( i hope for that )
Jade, 01 Dec 2009Now i would add my opinion -First of all i want to say that Nokia is creating nice device ... morei agree,the only drawback on jet is the resistive touch coz its not really as responsive as the capacitive touch phones,i find it hard to text,overall jet is a great phone.
Jet Dont Buy, 01 Dec 2009I agree. So many problems.
Your list of problems is good but it only touches the surface. ... moreNow i would add my opinion
-First of all i want to say that Nokia is creating nice device for a cheap price but the build quality often is really bad. Im a Nokia fan and using for years nokia devices and at moment arent any for a price until 250 € which could beat the samsung jet.
- Of couurse u have open system S60 and much more options to get apps but the system laggs very often also the display quality is crappy. In samsung jet u have one of the best display on the market with sharp resolution and AMOLED technology.
If this phone have many software problems then i can agree this because i know that this exists but nokia devices have also this same problem.
That why we must update this devices to improve the productivity, right. I would prefer to buy a nokia device but i see the models 5530 and 5800 in this price range. Both have good specs but like i said it before : cheap build quality, bad camera, bad display
So that the reason why i will buy this device. Which nokia device is better in this class? Im sure not the 5800 or 5530 . Also the design looks very cool.
Can you recommend me one?
U will see that there arent many devices with good display, camera and look !
I m looking for a new cell phone and the S8000 is maybe a good option. One of the things I want to know is if you can download applications like for the iPhone with Apple Store?
Thanks for your help
could anyone help me regarding video calling...when i try it ,it always says unable to make video calling....help please!
fishi, 01 Dec 2009The ppl who are complaining about the jet are to impatient. i have the jet. yes i see it has a... moreLook at the post directly below this one. Point made. It is little problems like this that drive users crazy.
Someone create a facebook group, I bet I can find 10000 users dissatisfied with the Jet. hehehe, that would be crazy
Hi guys, i have a Jet for a couple of days now, and everything seems fine, however i cannot open a JPG file that was sent to me via bluetooth. I notice that the camera pics are teken in this format :-l Anyone know a work around for this?
The ppl who are complaining about the jet are to impatient. i have the jet. yes i see it has a poor battery life but that is all.. the camera is good. the wifi is good. internet is good. features are good. there are just to many that isn't needed but they are there anyways!!! dont complain... and if a phone goes faulty then take it in to be fixed or replaced. you abviously are doing something wrong cause it is doing everything right by me.. well for now at least
Anonymous, 01 Dec 2009See Jade I will explain u what kind of Jet is
Very first thing this is one of the worst ce... moreI agree. So many problems.
Your list of problems is good but it only touches the surface. I also want to correct you on something.
You talked about Java software that it is more limited than say software for symbian or windows or apple. And you are right, partly.
Java software (applications, not games) is not only limited BUT also 95% of the JAVA applications WILL NOT work. So you can safely say that there are NO applications for the Jet. It is not a smartphone, in any case.
Further than that, it has one of the worst Operating Systems. It sucks. It is difficult even for the average to good user. Most intuitive things, you will spend hours in forums in order to be able to do on this phone.
And what in the world is the Cube? Is that the supidiest thing ever or what? the most unecessary piece of crap ever.
Anyone who has spend any time in any forum, will already know that they are flooded about questions on how do to this and how to do that on the jet and why this does not work and why that does not work. You dont see this with other high end phones.
Jet users are happy when they see the specs, delighted when they unbox it, satisfied in the first week of use, and then, after using it for a few weeks, they discover that it sucks. Difficult to use it (I dont mean to call, access the internet, take photos or send messages - there is more than that to a phone - and if you want only that, then there are 50 euro phones by Nokia that do all that), features and pre installed applications stop working and new problems arising every day with phone, restarting, quality of the sound, taking pictures, losing the signal, you name it brother.
This phone is faulty. Do not buy.
Samsung should refund everyone who made the mistake and bought this phone. They should recall every piece of unit sold.
Everyone who is unhappy, use the voting results on the left of this screen
it is the best phone...i used nokia more than 8 years,,,but this phone is better
Did anyone manage to get THEMES & APPLICATIONS for Samsung Jet....??
Please Please Please a Humble request to all those people who are making there mind to buy Jet because if you want to put yourself into frustation , trouble,irritating,sad and want to waste your money than just buy this phone.This phone is worst and of no use to buy this (Worthless).
Jade, 01 Dec 2009could u maybe list some of this problems?
because i will buy this device tooSee Jade I will explain u what kind of Jet is
Very first thing this is one of the worst cell phone into its perticular category which it comes ok.Now the biggest drawbacks of Jet are:
(1)Poor Batery Life
(2)Poor User Interface
(3)Non User Friendly Operating System
(4)Low capacity of sms and Msgs i.e only upto 500.
(5)Less availability of softwares as only JAVA is available.
(6)Though Youtube Client is coming with the phone but once you play any vedieo on youtube the picture quality Sucks and very very disappointed.
(7)Delicate body, not very tough like Nokia
(8)Camera is not impressive.
(9)Touch sensitivity - man due to frustration so many times i have thrown my celphone slam into my dustbin.
(10)The last thing about Jet is if buy this phone you will self realise that this phone is only for the smaal kids of below 15 years of age.
