well if they had made it an android phone. and not touch wiz ui, this would go down a storm. the handset itself is ok for a basic beginners phone. but i think all handsets should be android now. scrap the outdated touch wiz ui,
Anonymous, 08 Feb 2012good spec for cheap phone,and good design. but it must be named CHAMP IIIEpic comment! :p
good spec for cheap phone,and good design. but it must be named CHAMP III
as soon as I saw this I thought "Is that an iPhone?"(and I hate iPhones, then I read the headline smh very poor & sad samsung. then I saw the specs.WTH sammy? this is a 2007 level phone, I guess it will be going to the lower market, but still...then again for the right price I guess it's "OK".
apple 'o' holic , 08 Feb 2012well bit pointless. whats next an update of the D500. great samsung. What's so pointless about this? It's for people on a low budget or don't really care or need a trillion features on thier phone.
Alan Parker, 08 Feb 2012Same OLD ugly Samsung design... Bad specs...Read the report before assuming, what part of FEATURE PHONE do you not understand?? Do folks on this site ever read the print written by the editors on this site when they clearly input the following words: FEATURE PHONE, only then to come out saying it's got a lack of features. What were you expecting, Mercedes S Class tech and specs for a low price?
Feature phone = low end budget phone in case you didn't know or you just couldn't be bothered to read everything.
apple 'o' holic , 07 Feb 2012well bit pointless. whats next an update of the D500. great samsung. Yup, D500 will be upgraded to D5000 and will transform into a DSLR.
well bit pointless. whats next an update of the D500. great samsung.
BIll, 07 Feb 2012that would be nokia and it abandoning symbian you're talking about.I agree.
RvCuarto, 07 Feb 2012This is a crap device..laggy os and poor apps suport.waste of money..that would be nokia and it abandoning symbian you're talking about.
Same crappy Samsung design and Star ONLY lag. Waste of timreading about it.
This phone is absolutely stupid. I work in a phone shop and when the Star II came out I didn't sell a single one because it cost £80. We also sell a Galaxy Apollo for £80 or a Europa for £50 which one would you buy?
In fact the biggest selling phone of Christmas 2010 the Original Tocco lite where I was selling about 15 units a day barely sold any last Christmas because of the cheap android phones available.
Unless this phone cost
This is a crap device..laggy os and poor apps suport.waste of money..
Samsung Star sold a lot of units for Samsung. It's like their 3310 before the Galaxy line-up showed up. They should pay homage and at least create a high-end version for the Star :p
Awesome affordable feature phone. I think I will use this as a back up phone.
