I am not sure to stick with my S5230 or get an LG Cookie instead. - Anyone have or tried out both phones?
Does anyone know which phone has better reception quality (signal strength), Samsung S5230 or LG Cookie, as this is an important factor for me to decide which one to buy? Now, I have the Samsung Soul U-900 and signal strength sucks big time, so I am sceptical about getting another Samsung!
king, 06 Jul 2009hi andyr, i also have the s5233 model, but call recording facility is not available on my fone... moreI am really sorry if I have mis-lead anyone. I really did see it somewhere that the S5233 star had telephone recording features - maybe it was the S5233A model could it be?
I just cant seem to access m.getjar.com on my mobile.
It says access denied.
Any idea guys???????

Rishabh, 06 Jul 2009Is there motion sensor gaming in Samsung star as in LG KP500?yeah there's the same motion sensor game of two dice as present in lg kp500 (cookie).
This is a nice phone...looks gud....battery is nice..but takes lot of time to charge..music is gud...clarity is nice...plays movies in mp4 format with 30fps with gr8 clarity...its really bright ..today i was wall-e and that was too nice...but some movies stuck in between saying unsupported format or incorrect bitrate...
apart from that features are nice..touch screen is gud..nowhere in front of i fone..which i lost few days back,but still its nice in this price band...
I suggest you people not to experiment with the phone too much...use its already provided features...its cool....
I am very gr8 full the party people out here for all their support..this si a nice place to know more abt any fon....
Thanks a lot

aszah, 06 Jul 2009just want to ask, do i need to charge the phone for so many hours if its new? 'cause someon... morebattery is superb right from the first day of use. i charge it every 4 days (even though some amount of charge is still left). and i talk for almost 2 hours continuously, apart from other calls, and about 80 sms per day.
nik, 06 Jul 2009thanks man... u truly are the king here :-)
just one last thing.. which is a better phone f... morego for the star...
its durable, considering the number of times i had accidentally dropped it from my hand, and the number of times i use it with water on my fingers etc etc.
cam, call quality, video... go for star without second thoughts. n music will satisfy u in every aspect, all though its not mind-blowing like the expressmusic series.
go for star.
king, 05 Jul 2009yeah u had better opt for the service centre. dis is not a minor problem.Hurray.....Gt my cell replaced 2day. Samsung Rocks...
I advice u guys dnt mess with the firmware by upgrading it with new games usng FTP Lite...Bcos i did so, but was lucky dat i gt my cel replaced with the new one.
I have owned a LG viewty KU990 and I have this Samsung S5230.I have found no difference between the touchscreen on both. To me they both 'lag' and I dont find one more responsive to the touch than the other one. I have yet to try out touch screen on i-phone which I am told is excellanbt and more responsive technology.

sam, 06 Jul 2009first of all thanks to king n andyr for replying to my query.... i've got one more question..... moreright, first of all you have to have a S5233 model I think it is. Then when on call you have to press the 'more' on bottom right of screen and the I think it says record call or record conversation or something like that.
just want to ask,
do i need to charge the phone for so many hours if its new? 'cause someone said that i have to charge the phone overnight or so after the initial charge of the battery is drained since the time it was first used. will it improve the battery performance if i charge it overnight or so after it drains out?
thanks in advance again. and feel free to suggest on how to improve my battery. thanks a lot ^^,
thanks king. ll go buy this phone tomorrow. :)
thanks. you really are the king here.XD
