Samsung Jet S8000 review

 

Billed as 'better than the iPhone'... but can it even compete?

Great camera ; Lovely screen ; Good battery life ; Nice, responsive touchscreen

Poor internet browser ; TouchWiz interface lets down decent hardware list ; slightly cheap feel ; laggy interface at times

A dinky effort that feels a little underpowered thanks to the TouchWiz interface but has a decent feature set and sits well in the hand.

Samsung S8000 Jet review

 

Samsung's J?©t has a lovely OLED screen with amazingly bright colours and a high, 800x480 resolution.

An excellent multimedia phone with gorgeous colours on its large screen, and plenty of apps to help you organise your social life.

Samsung Jet S8000

 

A 3.1in AMOLED touchscreen and 800MHz processor are just some of the reasons to get this excellent smartphone.

The Samsung Jet is a super phone. It offers a good range of features and a nice hardware design that feels comfortable in the hand. Its processor does itself justice too. If you are considering last week's Tocco Lite, glance here for an alternative and...

Samsung Jet review -

 

The AMOLED screen sparkles and enriches everything from viewing your photos to watching your movies

The on-board GPS left us reeling and nervous to use it for anything more than a rough ?guestimate? to your exact location

Samsung - Jet S8000

 

Samsung's Jet has a lot going for it, but Samsung has decided to focus attention on the 800Mhz processor that beats at its heart. This, says Samsung, gives it the ability to play back multimedia well, ...

There is a lot to like about the Samsung Jet. Ignore the fancy cube interface (which is easily done), forget about shaking to switch apps (also easy to do), and concentrate on the core features, and this is a well put together and serviceable handset.

Samsung S8000 Jet touchscreen phone

 

Jet engine for a processor, lacking the real need for it

AMOLED screen, powerful processor

5 megapixel camera when it should be higher

IS CATEGORISING the Jet mobile phone as a mid-range device, despite being its fastest phone to date. At its heart is the Qualcomm MSM6246 chipset, with a separate 800Mhz application processor that appears to be powerful enough for what it has to deal...

Samsung Jet S8003

 

Samsung is marketing the Jet as smarter than a smartphone. We dont know if that is necessarily the case, but it is definitely faster with an 800 MHz processor.

A brilliant AMOLED display, all round connectivity and an 800 MHz processor.

Samsung still lack an app store and TouchWiz is not the best interface around.

Samsung Jet/S8000 Review

 

Does Samsung's latest mobile have the iPhone quaking in its boots? The Jet certainly has the looks but does it also have the required substance? Michael O'Connell finds out.

A black plastic finish that looks perfectly OKThe build quality is good, phone seems good and sturdyComfortable size in hand5MP cameraNice bright screenMemory is expandable via micro SD card slot

Easy to see influence of styling from other mobiles/smartphonesTouchscreen at time lacks responsiveness that one would expect.Some system lagTo easy to accidentally press a side button when not wanted

Reviewing the Jet has been a bit of a journey. Some things I love, such as the camera and the overall excellent level of usability via Samsung's TouchWiz 2.0 operating system. Regrettably it’s this OS that lets down the Jet which at times I suspect is...

Samsung S8000 Jet

 

Terrific screen and nicely intuitive functions matter more than the fast processor in this slick little media phone.

The Samsung S8000 Jet isn't a do-everything phone but it's still a very attractive handset, and certainly seems to deliver on its core offerings: speed and ease of use. The OLED screen is a gem and though we would have liked it to have been a smidgeon...
