I owned the Samsung Star for nearly two years, since last August I have an HTC One V with Android 4.0.3 and hell does it make a difference. Today I've used it again for the first time since I bought my HTC and it was just horrible. This phone is laggy, the touchscreen doesn't work properly, the camera is pretty awful, it doesn't even have wifi(so apps like Facebook won't work unless you have a mobile data contract or you're willing to pay a ridiculous amount of money for browsing without contract).
Maybe this was a nice phone back in 2009, but now I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Rather spend 50 bucks more and buy a cheap smartphone (or wait til the Nokia Asha 501 comes out which will only cost $90, it's way better than this).
No,don't ever spent more 500-700 and buy galaxy y.i m using this phone last 2 years dont buy at all.
i've using it for 4 years and its a hard one, just a 2G but wen u used downloadable browser like opera mini and uc browser it makes difference.
I used this for 3 years,I obviously do not use it any more but it is indestructible
