nice phone, affordable nice features but a terrible 2G network , they killed it
Hi guys, I have been using Samsung Gt-S5233S Star, for about 8 months now. I am very happy with the mobile so I just wanted to post my experience with this mobile.
Before you go further into my review, let me clear one thing that I am aware about Android, Windows Mobile, Bada and other top OS for mobiles. But still I have my opinion about this mobile, so I am expressing my opinion.
I have even added a 8Gb memory card to my mobile with 2 movies and 12 video songs, which are all 30fps and high quality videos. And I have never seen this mobile getting stuck while playing them. though the screen size is small, you wont feel that's a big issues as video clarity is good. But while playing the videos, the touch screen response is too bad as the processor is completely used by the application.
It has document viewer(no editing), for office tolls. But its just a joke ;-)
Its audio clarity is extremely satisfying while using Ear phones, but loud speaker is a joke.
Camera clarity is too good if we take the picture in the day light or when the surrounds are bright enough. Videos taken by this mobile are again not up to the mark, but they will do :-(
Screen touch or screen reception is not the best, but good.
If you want to know anything more, just post your question, and I will try to answer them as soon as possible.
NO Wifi...only bluetooth...
Browser is also too good..you can even save images and also watch youtube videos..but some videos loose their clarity while playing in this mobile
do u hav d hello kitty edition of this? the soft pink color? if so, i'd love to buy 1. thanx!
Is the Camera of Samsung Star is clear? I love to take a pics a lot..im planning to buy one..which is best Croby or Star?
Does anyone have the unlock code, I have tried #*9998*3323# and #*7337# niether of which worked.

When I bought the phone it was great, but in 3 weeks time, the phone started to give problems. First the phone's touch screen started to give problems like crazy. Whenever I try to dial a number, something really bad happens. When I press #1 on the phone, #4 comes on the screen. And it is the same for the other numbers. The scribe that I got with the phone, scratches up the screen whenever I try to use it to touch or write on the phone screen. The phone also does not give you enough space to write a little note or something to remember. When you are using the radio on the phone, it does not give you the option to name the radio station. The problems that come with this phone are so many, that when you try to sell back the phone. No one wants it because of so many problems. I know. Because I have been trying to sell back the phone for 5 months now and no one wants it.

Users in India - the new version is called Star Nxt S5233IVKS as printed on sales package in India. It is without WiFi!! Though the Samsung website in India tells Star Nxt is with Wifi and model No S5233W. How is the New Star Nxt (w/o Wifi) launched in India ?? Any issues particularly the battery ?? I want to get one. Thanks in advance
