It doesn't necessarily mean it's better, just that it's the most recent one.
A child may be it's father's sucessor, but that does not mean said child is better than his father.
Likewise, the 5530 can be seen as the 5800 and N97 sucessor, even though it's below these two.
About the S3650, I dislike it's chubby/rounded edges/oval shape (seems alot more round than it's other Samsung brothers, which are already a bit too round for my tastes), and choosing yellow for the back didn't win any smile of mine.
Still, people who want an affordable touchscreen phone and do not mind or even like the design should have a nice thing to go for.
i'll gonna buy this one! if its really cheap im gonna shut my mouth! too much people reacting and complaining here, what else do you want? theres no harm in trying this fone, it wont hurt ur pocket!
"The successor of the S5230 Star and the S5600 Preston is called Samsung S3650 (codenamed Corby)"
Star AND Preston have a 3.15 MP camera. This "Corby" phone has a 2MP camera. How you guys from GSMArena call Corby as the sucessor?
The price mentioned above is incorrect. Corby is gonna cost around 200$ or eve cheaper. Price is making it unique on the market today.
Now that I've made it, I think this phone looks interesting to the eye with the yellow colour going on. I wonder what features does it have on board...
