I think this phone here in India will be released as Samsung star.. http://in.samsungmobile.com/mo...samsung-star
Any info about price of this phone.. please let me know
just visited one shop for this phone. seems good,lightweight, software is a demo version of omnia (can say), ;-)
cost in Pune is not more than 10500/-
very good battery backup as compared to LG cookie.
in this category both are worth just to chose S or L.
in lower category nokia 5130 and LG GM 200 are worth.
sound quality is at par and GM200 tops in all cost in pune is 6000/-
Here is samsung with another phone rich in features. I just got this phone and trust me... its a killer!! Looks....do not expect it to turn heads coz this phone has a basic design which is really comfortable to hold and feels excellent. It has an extra cover just like the F480 has which will protect the phone from scratches. The body is a mixture of plastic and metal which gives a good feeling once you hold it. The plastic however is a fingerprint nightmare and would catch every touch. Camera is something which is an absolute cracker!! Although it does not have flash, the pics at night are pretty good. The "Gesture Touch" is the most innovative thing I have ever found in a phone. Simply assign an alphabet to an activity and when your screen is locked, push the lock button on the side and type that alphabet on the screen using your finger and see the magic. You may unlock the phone and make calls using this feature. The sound of the phone is loud but not something extraordinary. Listining to it feels like SE. Would rate it 8 outta 10 for the sound. Havent tried the headphones though. Its still the first day of use for me so I would not comment on the battery life, however samsung claims the talk time to be 8hrs. Now talking about the cons - No memory card in the sales pack is a shock!! Removing the backcover feels nasty and sounds as if the phone is being ripped apart lol. Thet UI is absolutely wonderful to use, however I dont know how would it support the applications. For me... I am pretty satisfied with the s/w and dont care if it supports any of the apps. For this price range, you wont find a phone so rich with features!!! People in India, I would suggest you to reach out to the hotspot outlets coz I got the phone for 9600 bucks.
People who are looking forward to buy touch screen phones should give this a try. Is fun to use this one.
Ok Seems like a steal for just Rs 11,100.
1) Does this phone have Flash for the camera? Cuz then the camera would be rendered weak in the night.
2) Which version( I am assuming this model has various versions/models)should i go for if i want to browse the internet? and what settings need to be done regarding the browsing?
camera is loaded with features like smile detection, face detection, frame shot, mosaic shot with excellent picture/video quality...
and that's more thn enough :)
it uses samsung own propriety OS, not sure whether you can browse internet after connecting it to PC.
But browser here is great with superb wide screen (3 inch)
were u able to connect this phone to your pc and use internet. which operating system does this phone has.
