A lot of posts regarding if the jet is as good as it is made out to be.
1. When comparing phones or judging a specific phone, do not rely just on the specs. That is redicilous.
Actual usage is what counts. The story with jet is that it looks awsome on paper. I agree, hands down. Awsome, awsome phone when you only look at the specs or if you have just used it for a couple of days only.
But when you have used the phone enough, for a few weeks, then the problems become clear. Too clear. I will not discuss again its problems. They have been mentioned by many in here, just scroll down the pages.
What I do not understand is people eager to express their opinion and advise others to buy this phone just because of the specs... or by people who just unboxed it.
2. This is one of the few phones that its user rating (for design, features and performance) on gsmarena (left of the screen) has actually droped, not once but twice and still counting. When it first came out and people were just reading the specs, they rated it 8.5, 8.4, 8.5. After people started using it, the ratings drop to 8.4, 8.3, 8.4. Now they are 8.3, 8.3, 8.3.
3. Samsung is unrolling a new operating system for its smartphones (see relevant gsm arena article still on homepage). The jet is a duying breed and quickly at it too
i agree with you
KLAUDIO is just making
stories!!! f480 is better than
compare the specs! lol_
if you have common senses
you will surely know the difference!!!
jet has a better screen cause
its OLED!! and uses 16mil colors!!!
about the browser it's pretty much
WORKING!! 100% no lag! depends on the
speed rate of your wi-fi_
i can even stream videos through
youtube_and other video streaming sites!!!
widgets is cool when you have
a connection on the net [wifi.gprs.3g etc.]
hey klaudio ... in my opinion no one should listen to you or read your review about samsung jet .. do you know why ?? coz you know nothing about one of the basics about touch screens (which is the difference between capacitive and resistive touch screens)and that when you compared F480(capacitive) with Jet(resistive) .. don't tell me you know the deference but expected jet screen to perform better !! ..any way when people here speak about Jet responsiveness they know what they are talking about ... Jet screen sensitivity is the best among all other resistive touch screens ..
i just bought jet for around 290 Euros..After reading a lot of positive comments i decided to buy it. Now i am kinda dissapointed...Internet browser sometimes doesn't even open pages,,the widgets are useless,,the screen is good but compared to my ipod touch is crap..Navigation also crap..Google maps 2 hours to open sth...Even my old F480 screen responsivity is way better...I am finding it difficult to get used to jet..Should have bought a nokia e55 instead...or waited for the 4th gen iphone...:(
hi jet owners.
can we have msn messenger working in this phone, using wi-fi??
and can we do a video chat with messenger too?
thanks in advance
P doff, 13 Nov 2009I have this phone and my battery only lasts a few hours, even when I only use it a few times. ... moreyeah i have this problem too. Battery drained within a day. Sigh....I bought this phone for less than 3 days and had sent in to service center. I was told they need to replace the circuit board and had to wait for 2 weeks get the parts shipped.
Kind of disappointed!

nid advice.. which would u choose between LG arena and SAMSUNG jet?? or der is way much better than this 2 units that almost share the same price or even lower?
I've been using my Samsung Jet for almost a month now and so far I'm contented with it.
The only thing I notice is the processor speed. I notices it's not that fast, or maybe I was just expecting much... I read somewhere that initially, the processor is not yet set on 800mHz, you still have to set it up manually... Is this true?
6.) About document viewer:
so far i have no problem in viewing
documents in these formats:
microsoft office (.doc)
7.) this phone is capable of
viewing adobe flash media on the net_
such as YOUTUBE, and other flash videos
that can be streamed via the internet!
*No problem with it!!!
8.) the price of jet in the philippines
vary about 19,000 to 21,000 (i think)
and it is Samsung Jet S8003 (asian firmware)
9.) the sound quality of this phone is great!!
much if you use earphones...try the earphones
of SonyE and ipOd!!! it will blast your ears!!
haha_ very loud and crisp! very clear!
it uses DNSE a digital mastering sound effects_
with wow HD and 5.1 channel surround! *winks
10.) I used it for almost a month!
got no problem with it_
no hangs, still in good condition!!
*someone says that opening application
is delayed?? LOL.. even computers will
take 3-5sec to load an application!
just wait for a moment cause the device is reading!
but it will just take for such about 3-5sec..not an HOUR!!lol
even YOU! when someone ask you something
or to do something you will first think for awhile
before answering/doing it! hahaha =p
