Shoot and Capture with the Samsung Jet S8000

Samsung-JetAlthough much of the attention is being given to the highly-anticipated Samsung Omnia models which are also set for release this year, the new Samsung Jet S8000 is another device that is worthy of much praise. The fact that it is very competitively priced at only £135 makes a lot people take notice of this mid-range mobile that packs in a whole lot of features. Not only does it have a great deal of style, but the S8000 also definitely has substance. In terms of taking photos and capturing videos, this device is surely more than just a purely functional device.
The 5-Megapixel Snapper
Although it may not be up to par with the Samsung i8910 Omnia HD’s 8-Megapixe camera (or the Sony Ericsson Satio’s mind-boggling 12-Megapixel camera), the S8000’s snapper is good enough at a respectable 5 Megapixels. It sports impressive features such as geo-tagging, wide dynamic range, and smile, face & blink detection. The camera’s UI has also been improved and has become more optimized for touch operation.
D1 Resolution
Samsung-Jet-VodafoneEver heard of D1-quality videos on your mobile? Well the days of QVGA videos may be nearing its end as more and more devices are allowing video capture at a much higher resolution (720 x 480 pixels on the Jet S8000 @ 30fps). A neat feature on the mobile’s video recorder is the ability to capture videos in slow-mo—perfect for an extra dramatic effect.
The Verdict

At such a reasonable price, you can actually be led to believe that this model seems too good to be true (or in this case too cheap to not have a catch). But it seems as though there’s nothing to hide with the Jet S8000. Although it may not be the most high-tech multimedia device out there, it definitely surpasses the features of most mobiles in this price range. Taking all things into consideration there is no doubt that the S8000 Jet is one of Samsung’s best handsets of late—in terms of value for money, at least.
