Just returned my S5600 and got the S8000... and what a difference! Now I got wifi and A-GPS (finnaly) and alot more features. 5MP cam is one of the best I've seen so far, very good quality, auto focus, geotag, and alot more (photo jeeks will love all available settings).
Above all the best feature is the UI just amazing, v. fast, very easy. Well AMOLED is also amazing (touch and image), just try it...
On the negative side:
- more gadgets samsung
- 8GB internal memory should be standard (some models have 2GB) with a 5MP cam.
- no dual sim
- you can't use memory card photos for phonebook entries, only from phone memory.
phonebook photos must reside on phone mem even if you have a memory card.

And how good are d following things in d Jet----?
1. Loudspeaker (many say its tinny)
2. Does it have multi-touch?
3. Music player n sound quality
uuuh, its out here in qatar and its worth QR. 2,200.... in dollars that would be around $600,.. but i think there should be places online to get it cheaper like ebay or amazon (not that i trust those sites)
the phone sounds awsome, n im gonna get it soon but m worried if its back cover will get scratched easily ...:(

The memory space reserved for widgets is only 86MB, very limited considering the fact that you can't delete existing widgets....an absolute MINUS!!!!
Sunny N95, 01 Jul 2009Can anyone tell that does the camera has Red Eye Reduction & will the flash gets ON while Vide... moreIt was supposed to be here by Jun end, no news so far :( Officialy it was announced at 24k, will have to wait for actual price till it hits the stores. As for red eye reduction, i dun think it needs it cuz it has led flash which simply cant be powerful enuff to cause red eye.. unless ur takin close up pics of ur cat or somethin :P
Can anyone tell that does the camera has Red Eye Reduction & will the flash gets ON while Video Recording????what's the price in Indian market?
I believe it can view ppt, pdf, doc etc files on it since they mentioned that in the announcement of the phone. They also said there will be an update for the firmware so we can have the menu in landscape mode which is similar to the lg arena tilted menu.
Does Samsung Jet have document viewer? that is word, excel, powerpoint and pdf viewer?
i have this handset, S8003, to be exact. and i notice there's no several transition effect like in the preview video.
and i notice the camera was unable to toggle the LED on/off in other scene mode except in the "none" scene. so night portrait photo using the "none" scene in lowlight area resulting an over-brightness in face area, while using "portrait" scene will produce almost black photo because lack of the light. is it just me? or i was forgetting something? are the LED always fire in the same amount, like weaker in a more well-lit area, etc.
and btw, if you Jet user and want to discuss bout something you can email/msn me @ firstname.lastname@example.org hope that we can help each other
