Awesome phone-I like it
I bought samsung star 3 days ago,initially i was also confused between buying cookie and samsung star but i went with samsung star,my decision was right and samsund star is indeed a good phone better than cookie.star was given bad reviews about its battery life and call outgoing quality all these problems were there in it but in the first batch of the phone second batch is improved one and is the best,its interface is awesome,all the widget are very useful,qwerty keypad is easy to use.sound quality both speaker and headphone is very good with slightly lass bass than the apple i pod.battery life is very good around 9 hrs which is far more than the cookie.it has all pdf viewer,image editor etc etc....
i will recommed to but samsung star instead of lg cookie because of its battery life,interface,music quality ,gesture lock,good camera,beautiful screen.and the very best to watch a full movie without recharging.....
i also think that the star has more modern look than cookie
and of course the stylus that's out dated and till now i haven;t used because there is nothind that cannot be done by fingers,any ways if you want to carry stylus you can because the stylus has a very good finish like a luxury pen with gloss and chrome,
another thing i like i s thatsamsung has a very good service network.atleast in India.
the best way to choose is to visit nearest store and use a live phone model.

Hi, i got my star 4 days back.. the phone is working very well, no s/w glitches and no issues with reception or sounds level... touch wood.
although i had a problem with my battery cover, some how the battery cover grove on the cover and the phone body got damaged due to which there is a visible gap between the cover and the body. i took it to the service center, they reduced the gap by scrapping some material off the cover but the gaps is still there. and they say its not covered by the warranty. its alright i don,t mind spending to get this baby fixed.
i just wanted to know that whether it is possible to change the inner body of the phone ( where we put the sim and the memory card) since the cover grooves are present there?

I have flashed the S5230 (S5230XEIE5) firmware on my S5233A and also I flashed the lattest S5230 firmware S5230XXIE7 which was released in May 09, but only difference is S5230XEIE5 you can install JAVA games, just a single click on JAR file. But did not find any call recording option in both firmwares. I also extracted the firmware and removed the default ringtone and wallpapers and added my own favourit ring tones, wall papers and widgets. I flashed the file and working fantastic.
