Samsung GT S8000 Jet
Advantages: Lots of feature, good display, good camera quality
Disadvantages: Hard to use, rubbish motion sensor and touch registration
I bought this phone on a 2 year contract for £15 a month with 200 mins and unlimited texts. At the time I thought I had bagged myself a bargain with this stylish new phone, back in April 2010.
The phone is quite stylish, a black touchscreen although it has a tacky plastic back which lets down the look of the phone and I am also still a bit worried about it possibly cracking if I drop it. The screen is 3.1 inches and the display quality is very good. The camera is 5 megapixels which is also very high quality and the flash helps take lovely photos although the reaction time is quite slow. The phone is 3G which is another plus. The inbuilt memory is 2 gigabytes which is impressive and leaves lots of room to store your music and photos.
I find the battery life very poor and it runs out very quickly even on standby. The internet isn't as speedy as it says on the specifications and I find the phone very hard to use because of the bad touchscreen. You have to tap extremely hard for your touch to be registered. I find that this is usually the case with samsung phones but the jet is one of the very extreme cases. It means that messaging is very difficult and even trying to unlock the phone with your touch is a very hard task. The motion sensor can also be very difficult and trying to turn the phone to the side to activate the qwerty keyboard is very hard and takes a good 20 seconds. The ease of use for this phone is awful in my opinion.
The purchase of this phone is not recommended by me despite all the good features it really is let down by the motion sensors and touch registration. The battery life is also poor and you cannot try and help by turning down the brightness because the lowest brightness is still very bright and drains the battery very quickly.
Summary: Don't buy this phone, it's not worth the hassle.
