chocochip, 05 Jun 2009Sir, i think the s5233 has the document viewer and the hand writing recognition which is missi... morethnks.... it is very dissapointing that this phone lacks QWERTY and hand writing recognition, these seems to b basic options available in most of the phones...
Sabya, 05 Jun 2009Help I m goin 2 buy it tomorrow..can u tell me which memory card i should buy?4gb or 8gb..w... moreI use 1GB and it just works fine, it seems this phone doesn't even knows the meaning of "HANG" lol. I guess both (4GB, 8GB) should work fine but i would suggest you try these cards first then buy them.
Tried it out in Telenor (Sweden) - It's a capacitive screen so no stylus will work - but you really don't need one :) Looks and feels nice - solid feel to it, VERY responsive (thanks to the capacitive touchscreen - same tech Apple's iPhone uses) - nice menu and fast - quite cheap too - so if you just want a fun little touchphone this is a very good option :)
Another cool review:
An excellent review:
Does anyone know when the red version will come out?
I think this is a very good phone for the price. It's value for money.
I m goin 2 buy it tomorrow..can u tell me which memory card i should buy?4gb or 8gb..will it be slow if i use 8gb?& does dis phone has stylus n its slot?

Vamsi, 05 Jun 2009Hi, can any one tell the features that are in S5233 but missing in S5603... really very confus... moreSir, i think the s5233 has the document viewer and the hand writing recognition which is missing in the s5603 but for me I'll go for this s5603 cause it has the Flash and 3G... and also the s5603 has the 16m color screen, hope i helped... B-)
Yes, it is called Preston but not in India. It's called Preston globally and "Star 3G" in India.
The featres that differs in S5233 and S5600 are :
1. S5600 has 3G, GPS, Camera with flash and 16M colour screen. S5233 has all the features besides 3G, GPS, got camera but without LED flash and got only 256K colour screen.
Hi, can any one tell the features that are in S5233 but missing in S5603... really very confused in which one to go... thanks all!
people please. this phone is called a preston. do not confuse it with star.
leastbothered, 01 Jun 2009asif, the info has been updated recently, else till 27th May even gsmarena was singing in the ... moreLeastbothered, check the widgets and you'll see the option of google maps and gmail. You can use GPS through that. The information wasn't wrong, this phone really has GPS.
Let me post you a good news. I myself didn't realize this but Samsung S5600 "DOES" have a GPS. Yes, you read it right, it "DOES" have a GPS. It's widgets have a option of Google map which are simply awesome. It gives you all what you need so YES it does has GPS too.
Clearing the doubts of other people who says the model number is different and actual S5600 is yet to be released then let me tell you that the model number you're viewing while switching on the cellphone is the code for samsung, this phone model is globally called as S5600 only and it will stay the same, so no more futher variants are going to be released and yes if you're buying this phone, it's going to be S5600 ONLY with all the features mentioned in its specification.
And another query of document viewer which someone asked, for that i would say..YES it atleast reads PDF files so i guess it can read other files too.
This phone is worth it's cost and i would say this is my second samsung phone and i'm really happy with the experience.
