Samsung Jet S8000 in the Test

For a phone that is called Jet in his name, the brand new S8000 is quite unimpressive. Would the test editor not better know it, he could keep the UMTS mobile phone for “just another touch screen phone”. That not do justice to the Samsung, however inside the simple case, the Korean engineers have implemented a powerful 800 MHz processor.

He is to provide for a rapid operation of the partly animated user interface and a good multi task capability. The Jet S8000 is available in two variants: one without navigation and once with a route from the House of Route66. The navilose variant is joined to the connecttest.

The eye-catcher at the S8000 are the subtle red shimmering battery cover, but especially the excellent OLED display. The resistive touchscreen in the 3.1-inch format offers a high resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and sets for menus, photos and videos perfectly. Only the size of the display is likely to be jigsaw busier still lush and the response in the control, but it’s whining at a very high level.

It offers three levels, between which the standby screen with a horizontal swipe of the finger back and forth can. This is convenient, because the individual displays can be customize to each 15 on – or offline widgets. Also the main menu of the S8000 is presented on three levels with a total of 32 entries.

Well sorted pretty gimmicks

What sounds at first quite cluttered, avoids the zapping through the innumerable submenus, which is essential for devices of the competitors or the own sibling models in everyday life. In addition care cute icons and unique labels for that one keeps track with the zapping.

But otherwise, the S8000 has some beautiful detail solutions and numerous optical gimmicks at the start. About a multimedia menu with six entries in the form of a 3-D cube can be called similarly as with the LG phones with S-class user interface with a button on the side.

Thanks to the location sensor, the Jet represents also individual functions automatically in landscape mode when browsing, when you write a message (with a QWERTY keyboard will appear instead of the traditional phone) or the music player, which then displays the album artwork that you can browse through – allows Apple greet.

Facilities to the snapping of the tongue

Also, the hidden Jet under the menu items “Smart Touch” and “Motion settings” for more gimmicks, about the etiquette – or even a hands-free mode. While former, suffice to turn the mobile phone to the ringing mute, the second mode the speakerphone automatically as soon as the phone is placed on the table during a call.

The remaining equipment package can click the mobile fan with his tongue, because the Jet S8000 has everything on board, what the heart desires HSDPA via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and GPS. To join the push-E-mail, a fast HTML-browser, a viewer for Office documents and about 1.4 GB of internal memory.

A memory card the MicroSD slot is not enclosed, for the S8000 has a data cable for the micro-USB port and a PC software for data matching with the calculator.

Media Professional with staying power

The Jet with a very good media player can offer in terms of multimedia, which can play all major audio and video formats. In addition to a 5-megapixel camera with auto focus and photo light, as well as a usable stereo headset for the 3.5 mm jack directly to the housing. The successful photo browser also offers a one-finger zoom.

In the laboratory, the Samsung endurance measurements delivered very good results, which are specifically an announcement nearly four hours of talk time in UMTS mode. However, the reception in the UMTS network could be significantly better.
