  • Conclusion: Buy an other phone..
  • Pros: Has got all the little details that a phone should have; DIVX/XVID, radio, HQ camera, fast internet and a nice screen.
  • Cons: After using the browser the phone will restart. IMAP doesn't work and the OLEDdisplay is unuseable in (indirect) sunlight..

Bad, I wasted my money. I'm now looking to buy another phone.

  • Summary: I bought the product because of the wallpaper and the features that the phone was suppose to have. I thought the phone with 5 megapixels camera will take good picture. The camera in the phone is not good, when flash is use to take pictures, the pictures are cloudy and not good to look at. The MMS fuction only recieves small pictures of about 5 kb. I've ask around to see if anyone know how to make the MMS pictures bigger to no avail. the phone has no support from samsung.

Samsung Jet

  • Summary: "It's bitterly disappointing, the combination of resistive touchscreen, unintuitive UI and lacklustre processor mean that this phone doesn't even feel fast when put side-by-side with similar handsets. It was pure folly to advertise this as a phone for the impatient and boasting about its incredible speed when anyone who's even only seen an iPhone 3G S or Samsung i8910 HD knows what to expect from a fast and responsive device that does what it promises.

Smarter than a smart phone? Yer right. READ BEFORE BUYING

  • Excerpt: Wish I had of seen this site before I invested in this "smartness". Apple have put out 3 phone in 3 years (and basically thay are just changes to one model) and Samsung on most days will put out 3 new phones by lunchtime and they still aren't even close to the Apple phone.Some love first: Brilliant screen. Very good multimedia capabilities (beats the iphone easily). Touch screen can work really well. Music quality is pretty good (not ditching my mp3 for it though).

  • Summary: It was ok when it worked, little laggy at times but it is a good solid phone. but then after a year the phone started to not work. when i try and turn it on, the start up screen shows then restarts itself constantly i have searched it net for solutions and tried them with no luck and this seems to be quite a big bug with the samsung phones it is not just happening to the jet i would recommend you buy a different brand

  • Summary: After using the Samsung Jet for one month, here is exactly what I get: THE GOOD: very good screen resolution and colors, but only in the shade. THE BAD: extremely weak battery life. Half a day with average usage. The phone EATS the battery in a very high rate. This is a major problem. Screen not visible in sunshine. Phone restarts by its self, this happens during using its menus. I have tried 2 phones same result.
  • Pros: screen and camera
  • Cons: battery, unstable software, phone restarts by itself, not fast as expected.

  • Summary: My poor view of the Jet (in my previous review) has just gone down. Google has just launched Sat Nav for Android enabled phones. But of course the Jet has it.s own system, Touchwiz. So not only can't you get Sat Nav, there are very few other "widgets" available for the Jet. People like EBay and Amazon understandably don't bother producing and marketing them.
  • Pros: Good looking
  • Cons: Limited OS

  • Summary: The Jet is a good looking phone with, at first sight, an impressive list of features. The problem comes when you get it out of the box and try to use them. I had hoped that I would have easy access to the web and my e-mails on the go. Setting this up is unnecessarily complicated. It is even more difficult to get a decent connection to WiFi (my home network or public ones).
  • Pros: Good looking
  • Cons: Unresponsive touch screen, difficult to see in sunlight, poor user manual, cumbersome WiFi

Slow and Annoying.

J. Grundy "Jetson21", Amazon
4 April 2010
  • Summary: The operating system is slow. moving through menus is not smooth and usually picks the wrong thing on the screen. I have had this for 4 months and haven't ever written a single text message without mistakes, such is the poor touch recognition. this is seriously annoying and makes writing a text a chore.EVERY TIME. I dropped it once from knee height and it doesnt recognise anything it I enter. If you want a smartphone, buy an iPhone. Terrible phone.
