i had this phone for exactly 10 days ago and having problem with the touch keys. most of the time the touch key have to press it twice or press it hard for a character to register on the screen. is there any sensitivity setting of the touchscreen? any help is greatly appreaciated.
Samsung Jet battery is very very poor and no softwares.
You have to live with what it has got.
for 19000 INR it is waste of money.
But the screen display is excellent bcos of LED .

BRAD, 13 Oct 2009Highly overrated mobile. Samsung claims it to be "smarter then a smartphone" ... ooooooh myyyy... moreYou said it rigth. Could not have said it bettter myself. An overall good NON Smartphone device like many others out there.
Lots of features but nothing extraordinary. Nothing to be proud about.
I would definetely not pay either more than 50 Euro to buy a phone that is not a smartphone.
And because I here a lot of people here saying that not everyone needs a smartphone, let me as you this then:
Would anyone here pay even 100 euros to buy a laptop which you can not download any applications and software to it? EVEN if you dont currently need, or think you dont need, applications and software. NO.
1. No applications. A billion applications out there but none for the Jet
2. The OS is not inuitive or user friendly EVEN for the above average user
3. The touchscreen experience could be better. Not as good as the Iphone
4. Poor batter time
5. The cube is stupid to the cube
Highly overrated mobile. Samsung claims it to be "smarter then a smartphone" ... ooooooh myyyyy god.
Let's start with the things that are great :
- Great display - would be disappointed if it wasn't
- Great camera
- 2GB internal - 16GB extra
- 800Mhz CPU
As Samsung claims to be smarter then a smartphone ... In this categary one can have crap or ... a Jet S8000.
Smartphone is all about ease of managing your contacts, your calender, installed apps, ... to name a few.
My biggest frustrations
- Unable to sync the contact grouping, set up in the PC Studio, to Samsung.
- Can add multiple numbers to a contact but only if I'm contacted with the number listed first, I can see the contact name. In all other cases I only see a tel. number.
-Contact memo. For business this is perfect to add some profile data. Disadvantage only 100Chars long. just enough to describe someones family hobbies.
- Not all contact fields can be used.
-20+ possible calender categories but with the Samsung Jet S8000 you are only able to select 1, Appointment. When "hacking" the export VCS file, you're able to use a different types. Bottom linbe, one has to organize his agenda with "appointments".
- Appointment entry
Title : 15 Char
Place : 15 Char
Content : 100 Char
AllDay or Holiday checkboxes don't work
2GB, if extended 16GB, of storage and I can't even enter a meeting agenda!?
Fot this Active sync is used. OK I can live with that but .. It needs to be on a server!? As if my boss is going to install active sync on a mail server just to for me. And then MS Exhange... there are more mailing solutions then MS Exchange. It would have been great if one could choose between the top 2-3, but no, not possible.
- Old formats are being used when exporting them to e.g. VCF format. Very difficult to keep agenda's (mobile & MSOffice) aligned.
- No EU regional settings (e.g. AM-PM notation) which makes is frustrating when entering a schedule.
nihil. If it is not their now, forget it that it will ever come.
Nice mobile with nice display as there are 10's of them but I wouldn't pay no more then €100 for it.
Samsung knows how to make nice screens but in regards to software, userfriendliness, knowing how their market 'ticks', ... at least they could copy now some stuff from the iPhone/Nokia/SonyEriccson.

my jet battery life lasting about 3 days. playing music and others. mine is S8003
Hi everyone, I've read lots on here about the battery life, some people saying fine, some not so good. My Jet is not lasting so well. I gave it about an 10 hour first charge and then had to use it. Put it back on charge almost right away, had to give it lots of tops ups since. Only had it 3 days, hardly used it and still it's losing so much battery life even after overnight charges, tops ups during the day etc. There's no apps running in the background. No vibe on. This morn it was fully charged, made 2 short calls of around 5 mins each and sent about 5 texts. It used up 3 bars of batt life almsot right away. Not impressed. Just switched from the 'auto' network setting so hoping that will help. Very frustrating!! Wondering if I should try to get a replacement battery from Samsung if it could be a bad one, or if I ruined it by only doing a 10 hour first charge, any thoughts? Thanks.
