The new firmware, i.e. S8000XEII2 rocks big time. New horizontal menu edit layout, loads of improvements on touch screen, browser and new music player is out of this world. New media browser is fantastic. check it out at darkforestgroup.com
i owned milions phones & smart phones phones such as omnia I.n95,samy g 810,htc cruis and so on now i have jet that i recommend to everyone,super phone!with super screen & accetable java application can get from getjar.com or java-phones.com
And I forgot.. the blue tooth and wifi work great also.. and there is one thing that may be of interest to some.. it is for me.. if you get txt the phone reminds you every so often that there is unviewed txt. Which is great if you are in noisy environment when txt arrives.... such as work or riding a motorcycle... you dont always have to check your phone.
Yankee90, 20 Oct 2009Got it in less than a week. My personal opinion - really lacking of: 1. don't even suppo... moreexcuse me? Sony Ericsson isn't cheap, get ur facts right & not every touch screen comes wit copy & paste, watch iphone, they didn't get it til 3gs (v3.0)
S8000XEII2 Firmware is out! New menu and faster!
O do not post here often but decided to put in my 2 cents worth. OK.. first off I really dont thing there is yet a "perfect phone" not from any one. I have the Jet, have used it and it is overall better for MY needs than any other Nokia, Mot, BlackBerry, Apple, that I have had. I know it is not a "smart" phone. But Java programs abound and are easy to find. Yes there are different types of Java, so you have to look at the spec sheet and see which version of Java is on the phone and use that type! I just down loaded 6 games and all work flawlessly, Get Jar is a good source for Java.
My needs are a phone that has great reception because I live in an area with weak signal.. the jet seems to have best signal reception of any phone I have, A good clear screen with fonts that are a decent size, Again jet does the job, you gotta love the amoled screen, it even play divx movies! to pass the time while waiting for whatever. Needs to be able to do email, the net connection here and places I work fails often and I need a back up and also a portable email for when I am waiting for something important and cant sit by the computer. I need a up coming events of more than 1 day.. and being able to drop a month calendar on the desktop is a real treat, touch it and i see every appointment for the entire month. The sound for the ringer and voice calls have to be loud enough to hear in a construction environment and it is. A half way decent camera to document things when needed, and it is way better than 1/2 way decent, pretty damn good actually. A key pad that is easy to type on, again.. no problem, no little keys, plenty of room for my fingers. Add thin enough to fit in a pocket easily, lite, and a battery that will go at least 2 days if I cant make it to a power source over night, again the jet fills the bill, so far my only negative is i have to give the screen some shade from my body while in the field in bright sun.. in that catagory nokia and Blackberry win, but I can do fine with turning my back to the sun. Music is an added bonus, and I picked up a driver to sync the jet to my MacBook through Isync. All My bases are covered.. it is a quad band unit so it works where ever I do, One of my other phones serve well as a back up but none have all the features that this phone has in one unit, and the price is right. OH yes.. this is my first Samsung and very glad i took the chance instead of waiting for Nokia to come out with something that would fit the bill.
One last item.. the instructions arent the greatest, so YOU do have to think a little on your own or ask for help here or else where if you find something you cant do.
still torn between the jet and the arena. the jet was my first choice (due to the amoled screen) but it seems the arena's interface is friendlier and also lg seem to be producing new versions of firmware to make it stable....samsung seem to have abandoned the jet, or have they?
For smartphone lovers;
There is no war here!If you want smartphone so go for
OS phones like crappy 5800!It's your choice.JET is just for Java lovers who hate about speed & complicating of OS phones.I personally Tryed IPHONE 3G,Really it's so complicated and its screen Resolution is awful.With JET atleast you have the best screen.
plz i want to know if the jet is perfekt in all things and if the sound of ringtones and the sound of phone are high or what???
Jet Wars aka Sell your jet aka jet you are doing exactly the same but with different proxy,so you are a stupid 6years old child.You really think you can fool us and that we don't know that you can change proxies? Go and get your bonus from nokia little punk,you really deserve it
Oh and if you want you can get another bonus in saying that N95 is better than satio too
Yankee90, 20 Oct 2009Got it in less than a week.
My personal opinion - really lacking of:
1. don't even suppo... moredisappointed with no copy and paste function and gps too...
so far never had a phone's battery that can last long like the specs.
the price already drop to rm1500 last week
5800, 21 Oct 2009DarkLord, i agree. Java is so good, symbian should be banned for the whole of this century.
... moreThis message is to 5800, aka jet in your face, aka obama, aka buy the jet
Is that all you can do? Copy other posts and switch the phone names around?
Why do you keep changing your name. I already told you everyone can see you are the same person.
Who are you trying to fool?
Your posts make no sense.
You remind me of 6 year olds who try to repeat everything you say
Please repeat this post. I just started work and I need another good laugh.
You're a funny man
DarkLord, i agree. Java is so good, symbian should be banned for the whole of this century.
Unbelievable that samsung made this phone, it's smarter than a smartphone. It's surelly smarter than the dumb 5800.
What a shame. The 5800 could have been great but it is just a meaningless soulless device.
I would like to buy another phone but dont know which one. Jet or Arena?
I have the jet for 1 month and I couldnt agree more that it's the best phone in the market if you don't need complexity of smartphune.
Don't beleive the nokia fanboy who is using many names here like ''jet wars'',''sell your jet'' or other ''jet'' nicknames. nokia couldnt tolerate that Samsung or SE can do better phones than their crappy and buggy 5800 ;)
GO and Get a JET, you will not regret!
rizzy, 20 Oct 2009What phone is faster Iphone 3GS, Samsung Jet or nokia 5800?hey,,i phone3gs is the best out of this in the terms of speed and reliability but it lacks in forwarding songs,images and video thru bluetooth... 5800 is good but lacks speed and go slow when loaded...
Jet users, how can i find the firmware version of my s8003 and how can i find the lifetimer as i have resetted the times in callmanager.
my jet is giving me 2 full days of battery backup with avg 3hrs calls/day, 30mins music 15 mins edge usage,15mins bluetooth and about 5 pics/day. hope this info will help those ppl who wants to know the battery backup. i really miss the notepad in this phone hope the nxt firmware update comes with it. does anyone knows if samsung is planning for a new firmware update.
