Excerpt: The new Samsung Jet has been advertised as a phone for the impatient. It’s the all new touchscreen mobile from Samsung and we impatiently took it for a spin to see how it rates in the already crowded touchscreen marketplace. What we like It’s an elegant looking handset. The front of the Jet has a polished black sheen while the back has a reddish tint to it. It feels sturdy but compact, fitting nicely in our pockets.
Samsung Jet review – Super-speedy media phone that’s now the perfect price
18 February 2010
Conclusion: So there you have it – the Samsung Jet, a super-speedy touchscreen phone with some cracking features, novel user interface, great video abilities and all at a bargain price. It’s not going to set the world on fire like the Superphones that have been released this year, but then it’s not going to set your wallet on fire either (nor, for that matter, will it be too big for your pocket!
Summary: The Samsung Jet's got us perplexed: it's powerful, beautiful and intuitive, but we don't get the point of a dumbphone that costs as much as a smartphone. It destroys the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic and LG Arena, but unless you've never needed to check your email on your phone, we suggest holding back for Samsung's similarly specced, upcoming Android blower instead.
Review of Samsung's S8000 Jet with Webkit browser and TouchWiz 2.0 UI
1 August 2009
Excerpt: Samsung claims that its new S8000 Jet flagship feature phone is "smarter than a smartphone." Well, it certainly does a lot, and we give it a good testing in this in-depth review, complete with video of the new TouchWiz 2.0 user interface.
Summary: We were content with the S8000's reception quality, although it wasn't much different from other phones in this class. The ring tones volume was pretty average, and we even missed some calls when the phone was stuffed in a bag. The vibro alert was nothing to shout about either, as it hadn't changed at all, compared to the S5600.
I'm already anticipating an avalanche of forum posts and debates as to what type of phone the Samsung Jet really is.
