well im using Corby pro(B5310) for the last 2 weeks
the best part is its battery backup i play music over 4 hrs everyday watch at least 1 movie(176x144 3gpp(stereo mode)) and play at least 8-10 music videos encoded in the same movie format use GPRS over 2hrs and message around an hour or so talk time say over an hour and the battery lasts for over 3days straight.
talking about music its not as good as the sony ericsson but descent enough to give u good pleasure.its equipped with DNSe so much better than other usual mobiles.(music environment music clarity,wide, bass enhancement,externalization,normal,rock,jazz,live,classic,mega bass,concert hall)
video player isn't that good plays certain types of mp4 files(DOES NOT PLAY AVI FILES),plays 3gp,3gpp,divx,xvid files..max resolution is 240x320
wifi is easy to use and connect
camera is a descent 3.2mp and is loaded with 4x digital zoom .LACKS flash .it cannot be compared to a cybershot or carl zeiss optics but clarity is better than nokia 5800(images are granulated-firmware issue-not yet resolved)
memory is expandable upto 16gb(im using 8gb so far)
can easily use 4widgets n music player at a time (processor maybe 438MHZ) at this price range its a good multi tasker
call clarity is really good and audible on both ends is equipped with fake call application
talking about touch sensitivity its pretty good and responsive unlike nokia 5800 (gave me heck of problems all the time)
qwerty is good and can be easily used by people having fat fingers BUT IT LACKS COPY-PASTE CAPABILITY
plays FM radio nicely and we can record them as it plays
it is preloaded with a few games but all are trial versions(HATE IT)
as it cannot support third party software directly it is its darkside.but we can download them via GPRS from free site and rum them.or u need to Flash your mobile (MOD) which voids the warranty of the mobile
did not try the GPS so far so can't really comment on it.but have seen it work on others mobiles
supports text files ,words,ppts,pdfs
overall its a very good phone equipped with pretty good widgets (additional widgets can be downloaded via samsung's WAP site).its a pretty good value for money.hope samsung updates its firmware which can be used to support 3rd party softwares (in mobile there are licenses of the widgets and their 3rd party identities)
well if u r a casual user enjoying browsing.social networking, texting and music its a go-go 4 u guys.
for a business purpose better opt for OMNIA PRO/E-series
any queries mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hemant, 26 Jan 2010Hi Friends i had buy corby pro and i had install samsung kies software but when i connect ph... moreyes dude,,the problem is that the drivers for corby pro are not installed on ur computer,,
which is best samsung s5230 star or corby b5310. please reply
Can any one please tell me how to use internet in PC using this mobile as modem. I tried Dail up connection but no use .. the PC suit provided with this mobile does not show any such option .. I am struggling to connect it please help me
been using the Corby pro for almost a week now and I just wanna point out a couple of things. BTW please do correct me if my observations on this phone is incorrect.
First are widgets and other applications like the internet that when accidentally touch, will automatically connect to your phone GPRS. I'm not sure about the outher countries but here in the Philippines they charge for the GPRS service.
Is there a setting in which the phone will ask you if you want to connect via GPRS or WiFi connection?
Second is with the "Smart Unlock" feature were in you can assign a letter to unlock your phone by drawing the letter on the screen.
The problem is when you click the unlock button on the side of your phone, you can bypass the "smart unlock" feature by just pressing the lock sign on your screen.
Again, do correct me if I missed any setting to correct this.
So far these are the only 2 loopholes that I found with this phone.
i guess i shouldn't ask for much but
in the Phil version, there are no games and YM..
