Before I bought my Cookie, I was choosing between the this LG and Samsung..However, the two deciding factors for choosing the Cookie is the abundant firmware upgrades and hacks for the Cookie..as well as the built in stylus of which the Star does not have.
Oh btw, I scored a high capacity battery for the Cookie (1050mAh) over at Ebay. I figured this battery is comparable to the Star battery (1000mAh) or if not better (this high capacity has 50mAh more). I plan to use this as the main battery and the orig one as spare..
I have a LG Cookie, my problem is that it is not showing the contacts name when ever a sms or a call come's in.
the gr8est phone i have ever used....COOKIE.
i just want to know how to use skins or themes.
Well to sum all this confusion, I'll tell you the key points and my own opinions.
These are the points, you may or may not listen to me but we own a cell phone store in the Philippines so I’ve tested and mostly own some of the cell phones out in the market today.
1. Star has better battery back-up... - as in really! Period!
*LG turns itself off if you ignore that its battery is running out, but with star, it’s rarely and will mostly never happen.
2. The sensitivity of the screen of Samsung star is greater than the cookie, u need a little force before the cookie can execute your command.
3. Star is more user friendly. If you’re not familiar with "LG interface" it takes a few browsing before you can familiarize with it.
4 & 5. Samsung star has 3screens while cookie has 2. Plus! star has a lot of widgets to choose from, unlike cookie it’s fixed with 8 widgets.
6. The sound of lg is loud, even if the speaker is located under its casing. But it’s really hard to tell which one is louder because as I play simultaneously the cookie and the star, it seems to output the same loudness but it’s really hard to tell.
7. During calls, u can access very limited both on star and the cookie.
8. Security, the security of Samsung star is far greater than the cookie; you can lock your PHONEBOOK, MESSAGES, FILES, CALENDAR, and etc.
9. In my honest opinion, based on our sales and the record of receipts that we had from our customers, mostly females and teenagers bought the cookie while star favors more to the male group and many mature individuals whether physically or mentally. Maybe because of its style.
For a budget phone, I personally choose the Star over cookie. That’s my own opinion.
Economic, and have the facilities of a high end phone.
Nokia has always the old and heritage looks no matter how costly it is!!!!! So guys come out of it and explore something new!!!!!!!
i recently bought dis phone, it is a decent phone,
the camera is average with no auto focus,but if u got a steady hand then no problem.
samsung star's battery back is slightly more than kp500.
but kp500 look's better than samsung star
it's easy 2 use even without d stylus
i also bought star and it is equal to everything that LG phone has..
only thing better in star is battery and talktime..
so..star is better..!

I just had this phone purchased last Monday from PhoneLibrary in NewCastle. I previosuly owned an IPhone from Orange. I hate the Iphone considering it sucks big time! Its a no fun phone unless you jailbreak and added software which will void the warranty!
I observed that the phone is responsive and very easy to use. My grandfather wants to buy this beauty.ROWL!
He told me he loves the huge screen and the font is sooo big that he doesnt need his reading glasses!He knows how to text via screen! Amazing!The performance is great and i cannot complain. Problems with battery is ok knowing its lithium so you can charge it even if its not tottaly drained.Fantastic Phone I can say!
I've had my Cookie for over a month and am pretty happy with this phone. This is the best pda type phone I've had.
With that said, the battery is one of the unpopular rants of this phone...I however remedy this by doing a daily "refresh" charge after getting home from work.
The battery life problem is no big deal really since lithium ion batteries have no memory..I refresh it even with medium to minimal daily phone use. The refresh charge only takes approx an hour till I get that fully charged "double beep"(phone is turned off in this case for efficient charging)...then I immediately unplug the charger to avoid overcharging/battery heat-up.
please reply buddies, 04 Oct 2009Is its battery time too low?? i seriously wanna buy either cookie or samsung star...any advice... more Buddies, Samsung Star has to be your choice.Battery life is better.
please reply buddies >>>>it is a good phone...I like it very much...a had such a phone...
