I'd like to buy it for my dad, he insist he MUST have a smartphone but I know he doesn't need it. So I think I can pretend it's a 'real' smaptphone. Is it a VERY bad idea? Is it a phone for a special person? 'Special' means a person who is absolutely sure he knows how to use modern devices when he can't. Any ideas? Please, I desperately need help. If not jet, which one? My dad is in love with all the beautiful colours and samsung display and icons and so on. He used my wave s8500 and loved it. I don't like s8500 so I no longer use it. But my dad wants a similar phone.
i am loving my samsung jet. i bought it primarily for its ability to play divx videos. add to that the quality of amoled display and its low price (when i bought it at mega exchange for 9.9k), then i have a winner for my needs.
sure it has its misgivings (battery life - 3 hours of video only on full charge, no popular os, etc), but it still counts as one of the best for what i could afford :)
if budget is of no conxern though, feature wise, id rather have the samsung wave.
About the battery problem, here in portugal we can go to the store, (TMN, Vodafone, etc) and "ask" for/order a new SIM card, wich cost 10€, and the battery life will be much much better. I can tell by some friends and some forums where i ask for this question.
Try it and reply.

Parreira, 03 Jan 2011I am gonna buy one jet soon, so i need to know if it´s money worth. Should i really buy ... moreWell, Samsung Jet is definitely good, but the battery is quite bad,it didn't last long, only takes 18 hours (based on my observation) , but be careful in choosing brand of screen protector, my jet's touch screen digitizer got crash cause of the screen guard, and need to bring it on Samsung store to fix it, but I'm bothered if the phone parts is included in the warranty... T_T
(sorry for my english)

jetstar, 30 Dec 2010If you want to buy this phone at mega-exchange megamall, buy it now, there are only a few unit... morehi there..
what do you mean by screen guard?? yun bang plastic film for protection??
carl, 03 Jan 2011anu pong pinagkaiba ng S8000 sa S8003?? curious lang po.. I'm planning to buy as soon as possi... morehi carl ,, if i were u,, magiipon pa ko for an android phone instead,, limitado lang kasi pwede mong magawa dito sa phone na to,
the reason why i bought this phone is bec of the cpu speed ,, but still it freezes , restarts with just 2 apps running,, battery life sucks , done some reseach ,
ive found that cpu is not utilized fully and yet the battery wont last a day ,
in terms of the camera ,, the LED flash is blinding , its too bright ,, images are unrecognizable,esp when taking picture of yourself
in terms of the music player ,, after renaming newly downloaded mp3 files ,, still they will remain with their orginal name upon download ,, so when creating playlist its very difficult recognizing ,,
my sister has a nokia phone with 5mp as well ,, comparing them, samsung taken images have noises when zooming in, nokia wins for clarity ,,
Hello to everyone, Happy new year as well,
Attention to all jet unit s8000 bought from megaexchange megamall phils
can you view youtube videos?? coz ive been trying ,, still no progress,, it stays on buffering/connected status only with the media player..
done also switching youtube site to desktop mode yet still the same,, at the display portion it shows only the F logo or the FLASH logo
im regretful of buying this phone,, i could ‘ve just saved up more buying android phone ,, in terms of the ui there are loopholes ,, limited apps only ,, LED flash is too bright destroys image quality , the phone reboots even with only 2 applications running ,, in terms of security feature, sometimes the phone wont ask for security password even if it is activated ,,
