Well, I got an S8003 4 days ago and from the word go it seemed like a brilliant phone. Everyone complaining about a laggy interface and bug-prone OS must have just received a dud from the factory. Call for a refund.
The design is second to none, as with all recent Samsung mobiles. I absolutely love the screen which is sharper than a cynical teenager, the responsiveness of its resistive touch screen comes very close to the capacitive one used in the Tocco Ultra Edition, with the added bonus of being able to use a stylus if deemed necessary. GPS works superb, didn't get lost at all, camera is better than other 5 megapixels in its class and video playback can compete with a portable DVD player.
One small little issue is the inability to take photos with the front secondary camera which it seems can only be used for video calling, but this is a minor drawback.
Anyone looking for a feature-packed handset in a sleek, stylish package that doesn't burn a sizable hole in one's pocket should genuinely consider this phone before going for some overhyped paperweight such as the iPhone 3GS...
Received the phone this morning,happilly inserted sim card ,used for 5 hours then chared it for 5 hours and on the phone . Shockingly all touch screen functions hanged including hard buttons.This is my 3rd samsung,maybe the 1 i received is 1 in a thousand .hopefully can exchange for a new set tomorrow.
andre, 17 Oct 2009hi jet users, which one better nokia E72 or samsung jet?If you are looking for a business phone, go for E72. If you are looking for a music phone, with a decent camera then go for Jet. Meanwhile, the jet has the best screen in the market so far, which is the reason I bought this phone. The music quality is awesome! Although the iphone has been the benchmark as far as touch screen experience is concerned, the Jet comes very very close to an ipod. Jet is also quite fast compared to other phones in the same segment. I am having a 8GB card which has about 6GB of music already.
Ok about my youtube problem. Has anyone figured out how to improve the quality of the videos streaming? The ipod touch i have is waay better quality.
Secondly, why does it take ages for the phone to unlock? A good 2 second delay compared to half a second on the original tocco.
The phone is really laggy, i wonder why they called it jet! Bad OS (Operating system) or something.
Everything had a big delay, like clicking on messages to type a text. Then sending it and waiting for the phone to load up contacts. ARGH!!
Anonymous, 16 Oct 2009Tips on Battery: If u dont use umts/3g, turn it OFF; If u dont use EGDE, turn it OFF; Set... moreThanks - I have everything unnecessary turned off (no vibe touch, low backlight etc) and my batt goes for 2 days. First day it loses one bar, second day 2. Then within an hour it goes from having 3 bars of batt to zero and switching itself off. This is really doing my head in! Phone also freezes a lot, nothin I can do except pull the battery out which is v frustrating.
slugman, 15 Oct 2009you can customize the message tones to anything u wantHow do you customise the message tone please?
can any1 tell me tat wats da OS of this fone? & does it have a tv out or not?
Anyone else got poor quality videos when watching youtube? I guess i'll just listen instead of watching blurry things going across the screen XD
my calendar alarm dont give me a notification when the phone is turned off, this is not the main problem.
the problem is when i turn on the phone and i still dont receive any notification, nor even in the mission events.
i think this is the only issue that i find...
maybe with firmware update fix this
Whenever I try to install any java game on the Jet I get the following error: 'File type not supported'. Why is that so? Any Jet owners here know the solution?
