Samsung Jet S8000 review
Named after its processor and its colour – it might have media credentials but is the Jet an effective business device?
One advantage of not running a true OS is that it does benefit battery life over something like the iPhone - it lasted comfortably into a second day with medium use during our tests, with exchange email, some calls and web browsing but it won't go for days without a boost.
In essence, compared to true smartphones such as the HTC Magic and of course the iPhone, it really comes across as something of a toy. Its media playback abilities are its standout features, and support for Exchange is a real plus - though in use, it's not as advanced as an iPhone. Of course there is the fact that it is available for less than iPhone on a monthly contract (free at 25 a month), but this is a prosumer phone at best, and as a serious business tool it can't really be taken seriously.
A seriously feature-rich, and in many ways talented, phone, but it falls short as a business device. If you want a smartphone, an Android -based device or even the iPhone will serve you better.
