Anonymous, 13 Sep 2009it doesn't have any cpu/ram spec...it's not open os... but it much2 faster than symbian/winmo... moreAre you saying that 5800 or the 5530 is slow? Well, it's not! The Star is only good for the first month of use but after a while, you get bored with it and you can't even add applications to it. While in S60v5, you can add tons of games and applications so you won't be easily bored with it plus it has a real processor and RAM. It also has a built-in 3.5mm jack. It supports tons of games and applications. And you can add themes to it unlike the star. It also has a higher resolution. And it supports kinetic scrolling as well. In terms of camera, it still wins with its auto-focus and flash. If you want this phone, you better check the 5530 first cause it's much better and the price difference is only $45...

pretending to b using phones n writing fake reviews...
hey man jus tell me one thing if u dont even get call clarity(most basic feature) then why the f u buying n using almost three samsung phones...hahahaha...lol
keep on buying...keep on buying...lol
it doesn't have any cpu/ram spec...it's not open os...
but it much2 faster than symbian/winmo ones...reliable too
it also has basic multitasking capability....no autofocus....
the screen miles more sensitive than 5800 and speedier than 5800 too...
it has kinetic scrolling.aclerometer based...3 mode homescreen,,,full usability of widget
use samsung 3.5mm jack converter,connect to creative ep 630 headset then this one kick 5800 but it can't match nokia bass quality (star gives crystal clarity sound quality)..
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2009have u tried touchwiz or symbian s60v5? symbian very2 not intuitive....slooooow and buggy!! no... moreTo, txLy..
dear i am talking about samsung 5230 star and the nokia 5800....5800 is more durable,compare to
i use many samsung phone's, like F480,M8000PIXON AND
my prevous one was s8300 touch.
samsung phone's are beautiful but feature wise they are totally rubbish.
1-very poor battery life
2-very bad call quality
3-very cheeap build quality
4-very weak signal strength
5-no 3rd party software
if you want to compare s60v5 with touchwiz then, go for any website and find the user opinons.
i think 90% user like s60v5 over the touchwiz.
and i think in matter of os and system speed...then
no one can stand against the iphone...it is true.
Does this phone support themes? Or is the wallpaper the only thing you can customize?
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2009Anybody help me about buying Samsung Star S5230W for business use like email and browsing. ... moreThis is definitely not for business! And no this doesn't have a processor or some RAM. If you want a phone that is similar to this with processor and RAM that costs cheap, why don't you take a look at the 5530 XpressMusic
i have this phone.. Already out in the philippines.. available in some stores in greenhills.. well i got the luxury to test the s5233S and this s5233W.. i must say that it's very similar.. one cool thing about this is it does have wifi.. it is retailed Php11,500..
Anybody help me about buying Samsung Star S5230W for business use like email and browsing.
1. What is the processor speed?
2. What about RAM?
3. What about email?

for your kind information nokia 5800 is far
better than samsung star wifi..... morehave u tried touchwiz or symbian s60v5? symbian very2 not intuitive....slooooow and buggy!! no colourful and no animation....if u campare betwwen old s60v3 and s60v5 u'll notice that it's a plain s60v3 ported to touch capability....symbian s60v3 is great but s60v5 sucks everywhere....even n97 miles behind Android and we'll see the new winmo 6.5 is on the way,,,
samsung toucwiz miles faster and speedier than laggy s60v5..it's simple but fantastic ease to use....even nokia trying to make another platform for their hi end exclusive phone = n900,,samsung is cooking new platform for their next touchwiz 3.0 on linux based and said omnia hd is the last symbian samsung fone...android winmo and touchwiz miles better than ugly plain s60v5
features=yes 5530 wins but when u use daily...touchwiz more reliable and handle most basic function than laggy s60v5 when it comes to managing file and browser scrolling,,,
"ex 5800 user"
now iphone 3g user....
give it autofocus and a flash and it will be unbeatable in midrange price phones!!

dude do u knw the price of 5800 is almos... moreStar stands nowhere in competition to Nokia smartphones.Just addding wifi is not sufficient it should run on a proper operating system such as Symbian or Windows Mobile.See it's comparison with Nokia 5530 and you will know where it stands -
