Samsung S8000 Jet review: Airborne

08 July 2009
It's that time of the year and the living is easy: pool parties, blockbuster movies and new gadgets. The Samsung S8000 Jet sure knows good timing and gallantly promises a bit of everything...

Wow. I'm stunned that this review doesn't mention the touch screen that doesn't have sensitivity to the edges of the screen when writing a text. That is a massive shortcoming when trying to write texts.
Or even the 'predictive text function' that seems to remember every typo you make and suggest it first and largely ignore the words you actually program into the dictionary... (It also overlooks real words in preference to typos').
How about that you need to use the software provided to access your photos/ videos etc on your computer- software that is slow, cumbersome, regularly glitches and often doesn't recognise that your phone is connected at all. It literally creates its own desktop screen (on your desktop) that you need to navigate- which is exceptionally slow.
The touch screen may have been decent technology 2-odd years ago, but it is 'resistive', whch seems to mean 'resistive to your touch and generally unresponsive'.
I also must make note of the only free 'game' (Rollercoaster) on the Jet. It really isn't fun at all and I usually found it to be plain frustrating. I would give up on it in frustration, only to try again a few months later when bored and wondering 'how bad could it really be?' Yep, it's not a fun game at all.

Sorry peoples, but I must say- don't get this phone. It is really not worth your money nor time.

Amazing phone that packages every need of a user. Picture quality, video quality, user interface is spectacular. Love this phone. In many way i think keeping iphone is just a stunt as it has seamless & quice interface. In many specs & real world test jet overwhelms iphone. Think before you ink.
