Very Very Good Phone (If u know how to use Phone).
Even if this is now and old phone but truely worth.
Here are advantages and disadvantages of phone.
Call – Good reception and very clear and loud sound. Speaker phone volume also very loud and clear.
Bluetooth – Normal working. Can take remote of other phones. Stereo Bluetooth and hands free supported.
MP3/FM – Good Sound (Not as good as nokia express music but still very decent). Playlists. Album view with album art. FM standard. Good interface.
Games/ Apps – Java games apps can be installed.
Camera – 3.2 megapixel. Good pictures in day light. But low at night due to no flash. Amazing Panaroma feature. Other options in camera are usefull. Smile detection available.
Battery life good. (3-4 days on single charge which includes using 1-2 hrs of music and hour of calling). Watching a movie and net surf will decrease it by a day
Superb call logs (keeps logs of long time, data counter, msg counter, etc)
Very good phonebook
Decent browser and gprs speed
Widget interface – almost same as windows 7 widgets. E.g. diff type of clocks, facebook, gmail, sticky note, birthday reminder (very good widget), etc
Document viewer – no need to install office or any other external software. Inbuilt reader can read .doc .xls .ppt .pdf .txt
Security – can set passwords to sms, notes, tasks, calendar, call logs, phonebook, ur files, etc. Very easy and user friendly to use.
Fake call facility and auto rejection of number (very good use J ).

Can watch movies at high quality.

3 desktops interface (Very Cool)
Smart unlock (draw a letter on locked screen to directly open a app)
Menu background change
Other normal apps like alarm, stop watch, timer, converter, calculator, world clock
Good attached mobile cover :P (truly it protects screen while talking too)
No 3.5mm headphone jack. Cant use other headphones. (Although good converter is available)
No option of changing music or fm station from headphones (as in nokia n-series)
No camera flash L
Ringtones and wallpapers can be set from the files on phone memory only (thanks to 100 mb of internal memory) (Wallpapers and ringtones can be set from the files on memory card but phone will auto copy i.e. duplicate it on phone memory)
Office docs can be viewed only cant edit L

WHat I love in this fone is the ZOOM capability of its camera w/c 20 megapixels, with auto focus btw.
Great strong wifi b/g/n.
Blue tooth is updated at 4.5
With a resistive touch screen w/c is small at only 2" btw, what a waste
good fone AAAAAA plus!
i cant find settings top play music from my gallery through my bluetooth headset
Am really amazed that some guys who hv used the phone hv given positive reviews. Let me first list out the flaws.camera doesnt hv a flash, cant record a cal, cant do anything else while one a cal. same situation wen u r msgin a group(thank god it allows only 10 at a time). even ordinary nokia phones do better here. thers a huge problem with videos.until n unless i hv transferred a video thats already bin viewed on another phone i cant view it on mine.says unsupported format.my pc suite stopped workin properly within months.was not able to access my phone's internal memory which effectively makes it impossible for me to back-up my msgs frm inbox to my memory card or anywer else for that matter.n nw iam not able to get back the contacts that i had backed-up on my pc into my mobile.says unknown error.the handsfree is of very poor quality.din last even a few months.the total memory internal memory for my inbox+my folders,drafts,sentbox,outbox etc r assigned by default n cant b changed by user preference, which leaves me in a position wer i hv a my inbox completely ful n the rest completely empty.try openin the battery cover of this phone 3 times n the cover becomes useless.they say thers an accelerometer.al it does is rotate the video player,alarm n browser.i hv not seen anythin else gettin rotated in this many days of my use.the browser sux.u cant minimize it.u hv to close the browser with watever u wer browsin if u need to do somethin lik read a newly arrived msg.i hope no one is stupid enuf to stil go for this phone.nokia's 5230 is a far better option(i hv bin told).
The Samsung Star (aka Tocco Lite) phone on paper was suppose to be a high end cell phone lovers dream. However it does not have a 3.5mm audio input jack, no 3G capability, limited internal memory, no camera flash, No GPS, and no Wifi. Samsung really missed the boat with this one. The lack of the input 3.5mm input jack is abosolutely unforgivable. The Samsung Mythic is a much superior product.
How can i activate the auto answer feature in the samsung Star and where do i get the option for the same in my handset.
I want to know,how i can change answering machine setting's,please tell me soon as pssible.
its a very cool phone. it have good function. awesome phone from samsung. just and buy it and feel the experience. that's great, amazing and marvellous........just buy it!!!!
i agree with u Nick, it's the worst fone i've ever had, if u are busy on a call, u wont be able to parfom any other function eg. go to sms and it doesn't have an option of recording the conversation, it freezes and it definately should have came with a pen.
One of the worst phones ever, not worth the price has no wifi, camera sucks and it doesn't have a 3.5mm audio jack...
i just bought this phone last week and i am enjoying this phone because of the built-in wifi system! i love to browse! although it's handy and convenient to use but im wondering why i can't play video from YouTube? I have checked already the connections including wifi connections and the browser profiles...anyone who could extend its help???
