Tan, 15 Sep 2009Hi guys, how is the battery life? How long you need to charge? I had a bad expereince on Omnia... moreHi tan,if you ask about battery life perhaps you should check out the specs.of Jet,the Li-ion battery of Jet is 1100 mAh as for Omnia it's 1440 mAh,the difference is obvious and you've already had your answer.
Also don't forget to charge the initial charging for at least 6 hours,as for the short battery life in Omnia try updating the phone's software,it works for me when i first used Omnia it won't last a day even on standby mode,after i had the new software it drastically stands out for 14 hours moderate usage.
I wonder if you can use the SE Tracker because it's J2me compatible...
About the weather, the widget shows only the actual weather for a defined city or it can show 5 days forecast? is there an internal weather app?
Ringtone volume is as loud as SE W995 or C905?

No torch at the moment (i miss it to)
You can set up any kind of java app. from jar file (via cable, mem. card, e-mail or direct download)
This phone is very interesting because it's not as expensive as the Omnia HD or Omnia 2 and has the famous Amoled screen! But I have some practical questions:
- Is there any GPS based app that count km and estimated calories burned like Tracker from SE??
- Can you use the flash leds like a torch light?
- Is it better than nokia 5800 under direct sunlight?
- Can you install apps and games with USB cable or bluetooth? (it was impossible on old samsung)
Anonymous, 14 Sep 2009Hi Anish,
Before qualifying someone´s research as stupid you might want to consider that yo... moreI agree with this reply.
We are not saying the Jet is not a good phone. We are saying it is not the Best phone out there and it is not a smartphone. If anyone thinks that Samsung did not misled with its advert (smaerter than a smartphone) then go to sites that sell this phone and see how many have mistakenly placed it under the smartphone category...
But what we are really pissed off about is that this phone did have the potential to be one of the top ever. But Samsung opted to put out there just another good multimedia phone. fair enough. But you do understand that there are tons of good multimedia phones out there and tons of good multimedia AND smartphones out there.
Overall it is a good phone with good features. But it cannot be compared to any multimedia smartphones and it cannot be compared to the iphone as far as touchscreen epxerience and intuitive functions are concerned (it does not even come close).
Also, the problem here goes far beyond this phone and far beyond Samsung. The problem is with touch screen phones in general. How can a company which never created a touch screen phone, come out with the best and most innovative touchscreen phone and THREE YEARS later the old dinosaurs of the industry cannot even come close to creating a touch screen that comes even a bit close to that of the iphone.
And I am pissed off about this because I dont like the iphone (too big, too many missing features, too expensive) and I cannot comprehend why the rest cannot catch up.
Hi guys, how is the battery life? How long you need to charge? I had a bad expereince on Omnia. Need to charge at least once a day.

Anonymous, 14 Sep 2009agree with u bro! jet is the best phone in the world if don't compare it with smart phone. wh... moreI love the jet myself if your looking into buying a good multimedia phone this for me is the best issues on some cases like unable to play WMV or another format is to gust install a video converter convert the file to your desired format and upload it to your phone.. one thing about the software through is that it takes time to upload the media files back into the phone, the are also some instances that the jet needs to convert the file internally before it receives the file, another thing i noticed is that when the phone receives the file it consumes the phones internal memory first and then you have to manually move the file to your mem card after the transfer is done to free more space. As a precautionary (as not to crash the phones system) is i make sure when i transfer the files is that it will not consume the whole phone memory leaving at least 15% of the total memory space.. better be safe that sorry is what i always say.
isacc, 14 Sep 2009can anyone tell me how to change text message memory into using memory card's.....?????Not quite sure on how to do that.. a good way of going about this is to buy microSD mem card and configure the phone to automatically save your media files to the mem card im sure the internal 2gig mem from the phone will be sufficient enough for all your text messages.
pinky, 14 Sep 2009do they have this in pink??In Korea they have the Jet in Pink and white, touch screen is bigger "3.7" plus an additional feature the phone can pickup free TV signals so you can watch your shows on the road.
