Im... morefirstly the guy lied to u about battery. there is NO phone model in the market with a better battery than samsung star. it has 13 hours talktime. n with maximum usage, battery lasts for 5 days.
i'm not aware of any softwares or themes available for lg cookie as well. so i believe the guy has lied to u about dat too. however softwares are available for samsung star, only u have to change its firmware.
music is undoubtedly better in samsung star with its DNSE technology. the bass effects n surround sound effects are superb, more so if u use third party headsets.
as far as i can guess video in both fones wud be of the same quality, although battery life will shorten greatly on the lg cookie if u watch videos.
also, i have never heard of any cookie users viewing full movies on their fones, but there are a lot of users in this forum who has described their great experience while watching movies on the star. this again, does not drain the battery much, which is again an added bonus.
there are no reports till now of any lags and restart problems in samsung, not even one...
hope this helps.

Alrite KING, seems like uve been the saviour for most of the users here...be mine too...
Im hell confused between LG Cookie and Samsung S5230..
ive read the pros and cons here but they all seem to be different for diff users!!
I even had a physical demostration of both phones at Hypercity..nd the guy there says Lg cookie beats Samsung star in a lot of ways..like installing apps and softs..battery life, better looking User Interface..but still im so swivel minded!!!
Im majorly looking for
1. More battery life
2. No lags and restarts(something LG does..read it in few reviews)
3. Good music experience/Videos
4. Capability to install apps or softs..
5. Decent Internet browsing
Would be gr8 if u cud help me mate..
I am not sure to stick with my S5230 or get an LG Cookie instead. - Anyone have or tried out both phones?
Does anyone know which phone has better reception quality (signal strength), Samsung S5230 or LG Cookie, as this is an important factor for me to decide which one to buy? Now, I have the Samsung Soul U-900 and signal strength sucks big time, so I am sceptical about getting another Samsung!
