The Samsung Jet is a nice multimedia phone with decent performance. It has a good user interface and offers great functionality despite being not a smartphone.
In design, Jet resembles comparable Samsung phones. But it also has some design elements unique to it. For instance, the menu buttons on Jet are hexagonal in shape and there is an attractive design on its rear face. While features like the music player, 5 megapixel camera and personal organizer are found on most Samsung phones, Jet does have some innovative features you will not find elsewhere.
The Samsung Jet is one of the few phones to be powered by an 800GHz processor. It comes with 2GB internal memory and a microSD memory expansion slot for extended storage needs.
Jet features an improved TouchWiz 2.0 UI. There is a three-page menu design for both the home screen and the main menu and with the unique user interface it is easy to access media features. With the Motion Gate feature you can control various phone functions by flipping, tapping, and twisting the phone.
The HTML Web browser has been upgraded. The new browser allows users to view five webpages simultaneously. You can get a closer look at the page by tapping the display and swiping your finger. You have got to agree that this zoom feature is better than the magnifying glass controls found on other Samsung touch screens.
The phonebook can hold up to 2000 entries. Each entry has enough room for six phone numbers, two e-mail addresses, two URLs, a birthday, a nickname, an anniversary, two street addresses, and notes.
There are several organizer options and they include a calculator, a calendar, a task list, a memo pad, a world clock, an alarm clock, and a currency and unit converter. Higher-end configurations will have USB mass storage, PC syncing, a Google Search app and a file/task manager. Jet has both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth so will have no difficulty getting connected to the internet. On the downside, the Jet doesn’t support instant messaging and voice dialing and commands.
The 5 megapixel camera has a bright flash. It can capture photos in seven different resolutions. Picture quality is great. The camcorder mode records video with sound and supports 4 different resolutions. There are some editing options too.
The music player comes with a simple interface which is easy to use. The Jet has an FM radio.
Call quality is decent. Voices sound natural and there is no distortion.
Jet claims to have 8 hours of talk time and 17.5 days of standby time.
Many features on Jet are not perfect, but they are still welcome additions. So is Jet smarter than a smart phone as Samsung claims? Not really, but you have got admit that this is a nice phone with a decent performance.
