It is a good price phone USD200. But unfortunetly, it is not a smartphone.
With all these same features expect from samsung to launch new Star with OS symbian, RAM 128MB, 528Mhz processor, price USD250-300.

hi King,ive got some questions about this phone.Im so confused,which one i should buy, samsung star s5230/s5233(in my country,s5233,not 30) or LG kp500 cookie.both are awesome and looks like.its score also almost balance.but i think i go to star cuz it have the all white version when the lg's white is combined with light blue who was so girly.but:
1.can i make a folder easily in this phone just like at my sony ericsson w810i?
2.its media player is good or not for me as the music freak?i collect more than500songs in my w810,and my mum's samsung,sgh d900i,cant add a lot songs in its music player,d900i's music player is bad,also cant make a folder in picture gallery or videos and musics,i hope this phone is as friendly as my w810...
3.if i buy this phone,does it including the external memory while the lg including 4gb,and samsung usualy not include memory card on its phone while we buy it?
i want to buy it but still afraid i'll be disapointed.help me please
anony, 08 Jul 2009thanks king. you are the KING here.:P
anyways, i have another question sir.
i have alrea... morethanx dear...
the samsung pc suite is the worst pc suite i've used. i use a more user-friendly way of communicating with the pc.
u won't be needing ur samsung pc suite. uninstall it completely.
1.goto settings, then "phone settings".
2.click on "pc connections". click on "mass storage".
3.now connect phone to the pc. the OS on ur pc will automatiocally detect it like an external storage media. n ur phone will behave like a pen-drive.
u shall find data transfer between the phone and pc amazingly fast (like u r copying file from one drive to another).
hope this helps...
