Mobile phones are being given all kinds of flashy names these days. Lots of abstract terms like “Desire” and scientific lingo like “Galaxy” are being thrown about to make new smart phones sound more appealing such as the Samsung Galaxy S and the HTC Desire phones – yet the most apt name is probably that of Samsung’s S8000 Jet, a fast and efficient phone that is perfect for someone who wants all the benefits of a smart phone without shelling out a fortune.
The Jet is an interesting hybrid of a phone, with features borrowed from the latest smart phones combined with easy use features that have been a staple of Samsung for some time. Running Samsung’s respectable TouchWiz version 2.0, navigation the phone really couldn’t be easier, with smart unlock and motion response UI allowing you to access different apps and features quickly. The Jet has three customisable home screens, and on each you can access your widget bar where you can choose any shortcuts you may find useful, from a quick link to your contacts or apps to access social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.
Due to its 800MHz processor, the Jet runs quickly and smoothly. Its inbuilt multi task manager allows you to keep multiple widgets open and switch from one to the other. The 3.1 inch AMOLED enabled screen is absolutely gorgeous, and this is the 16M WVGA version that supports a resolution four times higher than that of the previous WQVGA display. The phone’s 5 megapixel camera allows you to take high quality photos and share them online.
The Jet comes with Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync as well as DNSe and SRS Sound Effect technology, for high quality communication and sound. If you want to stream or download videos from the net, the Jet supports both DivX and XviD videos. The phone’s WebKit-based Dolfin browsers make browsing the net a smooth experience and the loading process barely exists.
