Ashley, 11 Aug 2009Can this phone watch videos off the net?yes. you can watch videos in 3gp and mp4 format. you need a converter. Find the below information shared by one of the GSM Arena friend:
1]. This phone is capable of playing videos up to 30fps trust me. Because I have converted 8 movies for my younger brothers phone. He too owns this beauty.
2]. You must download an application called Free Video Phone Converter from www.koyotesoft.com. It's absolutely free.
3]. Add video files into the given box of this application.
4]. Select the output format as 3GP

razvan, 11 Aug 2009I need help please! How can i increase my battery life? It only takes 2 days till it goes o... moreYou need to decrease the brightness of your screen that will save you lots of talk time
In this price range, this is the best phone. i mean touch screen, big screen, 3.2 MP Camera, Memory card, Bluetooth, almost every possible feature. It is a really nice phone. the only drawback i felt was lack of Flash. Rest everything is prefect, those who are thinking of buying it, go for it! you wont regret it
great phone as long you dont want to take photos. it looks great just a baby pixon. but without a flash well they should have not bothered. every photo is under exposed. even in broad daylight. i had one. i know what i am taking about. it was a quick change for a S5600 and never regretted it.
shame samsung you could of had an awesome phone. as it is its a brilliant bland mobile.

michele, 11 Aug 2009thank you!! do you also know if the internet on a nokia n95 is better than on a samsung star??... moreMichelle Again i am telling u. Internet speed depends on ur operator and not much on phone. n95 is 3g and gives more speed over 3G network. if u want 3g then take s5600 instead of s5233.
who said we cant stream youtube videos??? i have a vodafone connection and i've saw several videos on youtube...... but if you dont have an unlimited gprs then you will have to recharge everyday as streaming videos on youtube will charge you extremely....even a 1 min video will charge 5rs of balance.....but trust me streaming speed is marvelous
