Ben, 19 Jun 2009Hey Andyr,
for your 3rd point:
I guess king has misunderstood you...
I found out that this ... moreThnks, yes u are right he did misunderstand me. Thats a good tip there about the silence at the beginning I wil give that a try I have Audacity already installed on my PC I think. If not its free to download.
Strange they bothered to put options of increasing ring and normal ring in the menu if all they are giving you is increasing ring all the time.
king, 19 Jun 2009talking a lot: this fone has 13 hours talktime. i'm not aware of any other fone in the market ... morehi king,
Please share this phones voice clarity while calling.
I m planning to buy this, so plz check and give feedback of voice clarity and quality of this phone. Also share the battery backup of this phone when using to talk, bcoz i used to talk alot.(4-5 hrs/day)
I like all the other features, but only doubt is call related feature.
is it clear while talking, is it clear on both ends?
If so, then i m going for this.
advance thanks for reply, dear King.
Correction: I mean to say Nokia 5530 by mistake i typed nokia 5233.....
D.R.Sharma, 19 Jun 2009Hello everybody:
Can any one told me the price for S5230 phone.without any mem. card etc. in ... moreIn my opinion, star is better....
just compare the home screens of star and Nokia5233,
nokia is nowhere comparable to home screen, touch flow, acclerometer based features of samsung.
(3D Gallery, Photo contact, gesture ctrl),
plus symbian OS tends to get slow as we load the phone..
anyways, for 5233, u've wait for atleast 2 months......
so if u r die hard of nokia u've to wait,
else, go for star....
Can any one told me the price for S5230 phone.without any mem. card etc. in chandigarh or at nearby.here at Hot spot it of 9600/-
Is this phone is worth to buy. i m a nokia user.
or should i wait for nokia 5530 express music.
i m a music lover. so how is the sound quality.i like sony eriction`s sound.Is this some thing like that.
Any star user Kindly suggest.
You can get a 3.5 mm headset adapter made by Samsung in the market for approx 300 bucks (I got it at the Mobile showroom in Mariplex, Kalyaninagar Pune). Buy it and connect your existing headphones to S5233! No need to go for a new expensive set of headphones..
The "surround" effect feels AWESOME on my Philips Noise-Cancelling headphones!
yes,if the phone is tilted u will get the qwerty keyboard
but QWERTY keyboard is available in the non 3G model only........
the phone has 2000 contacts capacity....
....i recommend u guys BUY THE STAR non 3G version.....
:) :) :)
should i buy the 3G one with flash or this ordinary one. I am confused. Does star 3G have the full keypad?
If yes, i will buy it.
does this phone have a qwerty(full) keypad when turned to the landscape mode?
I'm planning on buying this phone :)
i'm planning to buy this phone but, i'm having just two questions.....
1. Can this phone handle 8GB cards or does it tends to become slow??
2. What is the phonebook(contacts) capacity? 1000 or 2000??
if anyone knows, plz reply
thanks in advance...
Andyr, 19 Jun 2009hey I have had a few days to play around with this phone. I wont list any of the good features... moreHey Andyr,
for your 3rd point:
I guess king has misunderstood you...
I found out that this silent beginning of ringtone even NOT in "increasing ringtone mode" is a safety feature by Samsung. As I read somewhere in www., there shall someone once experienced ear damage because of too loud ringtone, so, to prevent possibly accusation at court, Samsung has chosen this way. No chance to change.
But there's a workaround:
Insert in your ringtone 1-2 seconds of silence in the beginning, so you can avoid this increasing thing and your ringtone starts with a very short delay but with full volume ;-)
For inserting the silence you can use any free sound-editing-Software like Audacity or so.
Hope could help you!
devinder, 17 Jun 2009Don't buy star 3g its of no use, small screen, slow etc etc price around 14000hey is this phone really slow? like u r saying? and what are the other faults it has?
shrikant, 19 Jun 2009I am unable to remove the back Cover of my star.
I have heared the cases where these coveres ... morefollow the diagram in the instruction manual.
place ur thumb on the back of da fone beside the cam lens. gently push it down. then pull it. the cover comes off its hinges. simple.
tamanna, 19 Jun 2009I use phone for messaging and talking alot... can anyone tel me if it is user friendly for mes... moretalking a lot: this fone has 13 hours talktime. i'm not aware of any other fone in the market giving so much battery life. yeah... i talked for 4 hous one day and the battery just lost a single mark.
messaging: i too sms a lot. about 90sms per day. yeah its user-friendly. and i use it in the bus, train.
cam: no flash in this set. night mode is gr8 but pic gets grainy wen there's very low lite. other than dat cam's superb. equal to nokia's 5 megapix cam (i also have a nokia 6260 slide 5 megapix)...
Andyr, 19 Jun 2009hey I have had a few days to play around with this phone. I wont list any of the good features... more
here are my replies to such a big list of probz that u've mentioned...
according to ur problem order...
#1.finger on the lock: most unfortunate. bad luck. we don't face the prob. ur hand might be too big for the set. even if it locks or unlocks during a call, wat's the problem??
#2.yup... it takes u to standby screen when u touch on "widgets". dats bcoz there's no "return" touch key to take u back from main menu to standby screen, where u're just a touch away from the widget bar.
#3.u're mistaken again: this fone does have the feature of increasing ring volume. go to profile, then touch the ">>" area beside profile name. the first option there is "CALL ALERT TYPE". touch on it u'll find "RAISING MELODY". select it.
#4.this is not lg viewty. every phone has their different features for the same basic functions. u'll get used to it after a while. there's no problem with scrolling... it absolutely smooth...
#5.wat's the point in locking ur widgets?? u drag them on ur wallpaper to USE them, not show off. so y the hell do u want to lock them up?? silly...
if u have problem in managing widgets, try using all 3 standby screens... u'll find lots of space. anyway y wud any1 want to drag so many widgets to the wallpaper. it will hide ur wallpaper... again strange problems u've got...
icons are icons dear and widgets are widgets. dats y u can't drag icons to widget bar. its like asking for display settings inside ur ringtone settings. either way u're just a click away to the widget bar or main menu. strange problem again...
#6.again... this is not lg viewty. lg viewty costs around rs.19,000 and star costs around rs.9,000. there's a difference of rs.10,000, if u've noticed. dats why u're not getting the same features. hehe. silly problem again...
#7.there are enough settings available for sound. u have to go to PROFILE settings for dat. and about personalising... u can set a separate ringtone and separate sms tone for every conract that u have. wat more personalisation so u want??
and y do u want sound settings when u are in SILENT mode?? do u know the meaning of "SILENT"?? very silly problem again.
#8.the screen display backlighting is enough to light up the 3 tiny buttons.
#9.most of the users don't even know wat's "hot swap"... hehe. anyway... when u really want the phone to switch on and off to listen to start-up and shut-down ringtones, wat's the prob in changing memory card wen the phone is off... hehe.
anyway... y wud any1 wat to change memory cards every other moment...
#10.here u contradict ur own points dear. once u're asking for personalising features. at the next moment u get frustrated with it... y wud anyone want start up tone options for every mp3 that u've stored in ur phone... quite silly. how many times do u switch off and turn on ur phone per day that u want to hear music.
now u're too confused between lg viewty and samsung star. get to use this fone dear. u'll enjoy it!
i know when people switch from nokia to sony... they cry out for the superb features on nokia that they miss in sony... anyway... sony users are also die hard fans of sony... every brand has its own features... there's no common platform.
I am unable to remove the back Cover of my star.
