I see 7hrs of talktime in samsung singapore webpage. it is named samsung preston.
300h standby for a phone is quite low. but this phone is midrange, so don't expect much. Still good for a midrange cause it got 3G. it's "rare" for a full touchscreen phone to have that

I am little bit in dilemma of getting this model becos of its battery only!!!
I want a good battery so thinking to get S5233 instead of S5603.
How is the battery life .Wavetel in chennai said the S5603 model is stopped because of its battery problem.
as far as i know, samsung adds dnse to every new phone they release now. that what it makes (almost all) samsung phones, low speaker volume. but they get crisp sound than sony cause they just pull the bass up

My bro has a 5220 Xpress music phone and when i made him hear the music from Samsung S5600 he was floored. Are you aware that you can change the sound to rock, jazz, surround etc. while listening to music? Check it....it will make a difference.

Vamsi, 07 Jun 2009Asif, I guess u r using this phone... how do you feel messaging in this? Because this phone do... moreMessaging is fine. It uses the usual numeric virtual keypad but I reckon I type faster in this one. It does not have any other way to type, as you already know. And people I got it for 11000 in Delhi and S5320 costs 9750. I don't think it makes a shedding of 4000?

Because this phone doesnt have QWERTY keys i guess its bit hard to write using the standard number keys with out the stylus, and as i do lot of messaging its a big consern for me... thanks!
vamsi, 07 Jun 2009this phone does not even have wifi and gps, so just for 3G and flash we need to shed extra 400... moreIt had GPS. Google Maps does the work. Besides, i would like to tell you that Reliance has already launched it's GSM network with "3G" so if people are buying a cellphone for keeping it for long time they'll regret buying S5320 because they'll miss out on video calling and very high speed internet, not to forget more brighter screen and more solid touchscreen (iPhone type) of S5600.
this phone does not even have wifi and gps, so just for 3G and flash we need to shed extra 4000Rs... hmmm think i shld go for S5233
I guess most of the people are very much confused about the battery life. Let me tell you, S5600 uses 16M colours so it's obvious that it gives much higer colours and display and consumes a bit more battery too but i don't think S5230 gives 10hrs of talktime, that is near to impossible. I'll soon give the update for the same but according to me both the phones don't have much of difference in their battery lives.
Will a bigger version of this phone come out?
Hi, could anyone who has bought the phone comment on the battery life? is it really short? this is because as compared to the Star S5230/33, the battery life of this one seems really short
Vamsi, 06 Jun 2009thnks.... it is very dissapointing that this phone lacks QWERTY and hand writing recognition, ... moreYep it is disappointing to know that it doesn't have the qwerty feature and the hand writing recognition, but its a budget phone so its expected that it has some extra features they didn't include in it... For me its a good phone! and Vamsi, Asif said it views PDF files so i correct myself it has a document viewer, sorry...
