Samsung Preston Icon

 

At this low price we can live without the bells and whistles of the more expensive phones in the Icon range, but we can't recommend a phone with poor call quality.

Fantastic touchscreen display, Decent performance, Makes a good media player

Poor call quality, No 3.5mm headphone socket on the phone, No memory card included

Samsung Star Reviewed

 

A review of Samsung's best seller of 2009, the low-end Samsung Star S5230. With variations of the Star TV and Star Wi-Fi, is this phone still worth purchasing three years down the line?

Samsung S5603

 

Samsung S5603 is a candybar phone with HSDPA support and work on quad-band GSM network. It features touch QVGA TFT 16M colors display, 3MP camera, FM Radio, Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP, HTML browser, Organizer and Speakerphone.

Easy to use; good speakers; decent camera

Slow; overly simplified; picture ­viewer could be better

However, it is overly simplistic in many areas and the processor is not as fast as it should which makes it a little sluggish at times.
