Samsung S5230 Star review: Hot starlet

 

Samsung are going to great lengths to pile pressure on the LG Cookie. While the Samsung S5600 Preston aims to outdo it, the 5230 Star is set for a head-on collision course. This starlet's middle name...

The name itself is no shortcut to stardom but the Tocco pedigree certainly brings with it certain expectations of quality. So will this little Star still be going strong a year from launch? The S5230 certainly has all the ingredients, now all we need...

Samsung Star S5230 Review

 

Today I am going to have a look at the rather modestly priced Samsung GT S5230 Star, and would evaluate as to how well does it stand up to user expectations.

Samsung Star (S5230) mobile phone

 

Samsung's Star mobile phone is a good introduction to the world of touch-screen mobile phones

Compact, responsive touch screen, TouchWIZ UI, good on-screen keyboards, price

No 3G, screen isn't particularly sharp, widgets could be improved, no dedicated apps

The Samsung Star is a functional and easy to use touch-screen handset that will appeal to people on a tight budget. The lack of 3G connectivity will turn many potential buyers elsewhere, however.
