The Samsung S8000 Jet is quick to please and keen to entertain. If not the feature load, we're impressed with the fluid, lively and ticking user interface. Sometimes fun to use does matter as much as all the extra features in world.

MobileBurn

A lot of high-end functionality in a device that is still simpler than most smartphones

from MobileBurn

The Samsung S8000 Jet is a very desireable phone. It has a very sleek design, and packs in a lot of good multimedia functionality. Samsung's WVGA resolution AMOLED display is a wonder to behold, and it pairs up quite nicely with the Jet's Dolfin web browser and 5.0 megapixel autofocus camera. Some of the new TouchWiz 2.0 user interface features look like cheap parlour tricks, but overall the phone comes across as solidly usable and enjoyable.

In the end, that's what matters. Will users enjoy the phone, and can it take care of their basic needs? For the Jet, that answer is yes. It... Full review

Gorgeous screen and good features make the Jet a contender

from CNET
Samsung touts the Jet as a mobile phone that's faster than a speeding bullet, but it left us with the feeling we were creeping along on a lawnmower.

Nothing short of a multimedia monster

from GSMArena

So, in a nutshell - the Samsung S8000 Jet is quick to please and keen to entertain. If not the feature load, we're impressed with the fluid, lively and ticking user interface. Sometimes fun to use does matter as much as all the extra features in world.

The best thing about the Samsung Jet is it really puts the user first. The rich and captivating interface and the sharp and inspired accelerometer controls make the Jet unique and entertaining. Furthermore Samsung have managed to deliver a pretty decent hardware package too. Sure, the S8000 Jet is no Pixon12 but it hardly has any sign... Full review

Speed, power, and dominant performance

from Dial-a-Phone
Unlike many smartphones that sacrifice features for form factor, the Samsung Jet packs all of these into a sleek body and super cool frame. The S8000 Jet also boasts a host of multimedia features including a 5 megapixel camera, built-in GPS, DNSe & SRS Sound Effect technology for superior sound quality, and DivX and XviD video support for hassle-free video downloading and viewing...
