Flashback: the Samsung Jet was a feature phone that made smartphones of the day tremble

14 June 2020
With its AMOLED touchscreen and TouchWiz UI, you'd be forgiven for thinking this was Samsung's first Android phone.

That thing has a user-replaceable battery! No shitty planned obsolescence!

At that time and era this phone was like from a very far future.
In past there were beaitifull girl with name f Kyaurisin which had this phone and was a daily member and user of these pages.
But past few last years i did not heard from her.

Levy, 15 Jun 2020Because you can buy this phone for $100 today.You mean $30. And that's just due to a lack of stock due to this being a decade old phone so ordinarily it'd be even less.

I used to own one and it was one of the worst phone I ever had. Hanged like anything and it spent more time at Samsung service center then in my pocket. And finally after 9 months it's processor died which Samsung replaced after 2 months of email exchanges. Finally sold it as soon as got the processor replaced. It was not more than a wallpaper viewer.

I remember when my dear friend, Fawzy Moghabghab, showed up one day toting this phone; it was a mesmerising event.

But even with extensive customizations to the UI, modern phones have a feeling sameness that phones of the past easily avoided.

SO F*CKIN TRUE

Excellent written nostalgic Article. Brings back the good old days.

It could do all the thing a modern smartphone can do today, so yes, it was a smartphone. Opening 5 tabs in the browser, multitasking were no small feat back in those days.

It looks almost exactly like it's bigger bro, the i8000 (Omnia II)

I had og for a month. I sold it and was very dissapointed. It was very slow, and it was often quite difficult to press the virtual buttons in the corners of the screen.

I had this phone and the screen always got loads of dust under the glass. Had it exchanged twice
