I had this phone for 2 weeks then returned it. Reasons. Battery is just as poor as most Samsung phones camera is crap touch screen very annoying to say the least takes quite a few touches before it responds. I have experience with many mobiles but this one i cant stand. Why is it also on every Samsung signal is rubbish even in good coverage area and i dont cover the internal antenna. And why do so many Samsung phones have trouble with memory cards i wanted to throw this phone out of the window. Good job i never as i returned it to get Nokia 6303 which is great. Camera is great as is battery it goes on for days and days.
Thanks King....for your valuable advice....also tell is it any way that we can forward the videos in samsung star?

My battery barely lasts me 2 days.......
I have used it for 1 Hr Musi... moreMaybe it needs a few Charge/Discharge/Charge cycles before it gets to full capacity. try:
Charge phone to full bars then let phone battery wear right down until it says 'low battery' and bleeps and then finally shuts down. Then give it a good overnight charge without using it. Do this discharge and recharge situation a couple of times and it should condition the battery to last longer - this happens with a lot of mobile phones not just Samsung. If you find the battery dont last long after that try these tips:
Try not to cover aerial part of phone with palm of hand as this can block signal and phone has to use more power, try to always have good signal (full bars) as poor signal use more battery power. Go into settings and lower brightness level of LCD display to as low as possible but still useable. Turn of all vibration on phone for ringtones and turn off vibration feedback and phone beeps/keypad beeps. You can also try with keypad 'hack' turn off GPRS symbol - by default it is on always but you can set by just GPRS coming on when needed (google it) having phone/music at full volume will wear down battery quicker as well. Hope this all helps.
I dont know why.......
