Another Wonderful Review

by Wireless_Guru    May 10, 2006, 9:50 AM

"The Jet is the first phone available from Amp'd Mobile, so it is all very new. As can be expected, there are some glitches. For example, out of the box the Amp'd Live feature (Amp'd's live/streaming media portal) does not work. Tech support is very friendly and assures me this will be fixed but at this point I cannot try out all the phone's features.

The hardware itself looks very stylish. The case is plastic which feels a little cheaper than my previous phone but it seems to be sturdy and it is all put together well. The pieces are well-machined, the buttons respond well, and the styling is consistent and attractive. My only reservation is that the slide seems a little awkward, but this does not interfere with the operation of the phone.

The display, in a word, is beautiful. High resolution, high contrast, good color, and quite responsive. Paired with the graphic-rich interface, it makes for quite an enjoyable user experience. The built-in camera is not a very high resolution but the photos look good. In video mode, it is very capable and the results are on par with the quality of the display.

While the interface looks great, one thing I felt right away was lacking is customizable hot-keys. All the phone's features are available through a menu, and when outside of the menu the arrow keys are each programmed to short-cut the user to a commonly used feature (e.g. contacts list, messaging menu, etc.) However, only one of these keys is customizable. Otherwise, features and settings are easy to find in the menus.

Provided Amp'd can work out the software bugs, this could shape up to be an impressive phone for the price".
