Excerpt: I was quite fascinated with the Jet when I first laid eyes on it last month in Singapore. Although a little generic in design it did have that certain je ne c'est quoi quality about it. What really intrigued me was the name of course. Speed of multitasking was the selling point and this I had to see for myself. And after a few days poking around the handset's features and functions here’s my take on the Jet.
Conclusion: 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.
Pros: Samsung's been toiling in the labs day and night to come up with the OLED screen on the Samsung Jet, and it's paid dividends. It's by far the most luscious we've ever laid eyes on in a phone, and threatens to make films watchable on a 3.1-inch device. While not as responsive as an iPhone's display, it's still the best resistive screen we've ever typed on, leaving both Nokia and LG in the starting blocks. The camera grabs great stills and video, and the whole thing fee...
Cons: Samsung says the Jet is "smarter than smartphone", which is a fib Pinnochio would gouge your eyes out with. It's not a smartphone, so there's no way to load up on third party apps, leaving you stuck with the programs Samsung has deigned to pre-install on its TouchWhiz 2.0 interface. Sure, you've got YouTube on there for chuckles, but how long will you find sneezing pandas funny for? The media "cube" Samsung's touting is also entirely pointless: it's far quicker to loa...
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.
Conclusion: Met de Samsung Jet hebben de Koreanen een mooi toestel neergezet. Niet alleen wat uiterlijk betreft, want de Jet ziet er goed uit, maar vooral ook qua functionaliteiten. Door zijn uitrusting, looks en compacte formaat zal de Jet een jong publiek aanspreken, maar met de ondersteuning voor Exchange mikt Samsung heel slim ook op de zakelijke gebruiker. De Exchange-koppeling werkt namelijk vlekkeloos. Een mooie toevoeging aan de al rijke full touch-reeks van de Koreanen!
Conclusion: Interessante pur trovandosi a un gradino leggermente inferiore rispetto agli Omnia e ad altri smartphone presentati di recente, il Samsung Jet è un terminale UMTS con tecnologia HSDPA e dispone di tutto l’occorrente per l’intrattenimento, quindi fotocamera potente, video in HD, lettore e radio, GPS integrato e i classici Widget personalizzabili. Molto ampia anche la memoria interna.
