Samsung S5260 Star II review: In the making

 

You must remember this one – maybe not by face but certainly by name. The Samsung S5260 Star II has some big shoes to fill: over 10 million units sold propelled the predecessor to Stardom. The original Samsung Star was one of the most popular handsets...

In the tradition of the first Samsung Star, which was great success with its 30 million units sold, the Samsung Star II is a cute and affordable touchscreen feature phone, with a few enhancements over its predecessor where it counts...

30 million sold phones worldwide. Just listen to that number and reflect. That is the amazing legacy of the first Samsung Star handset. The Star was one of the first affordable touchscreen handsets and was welcomed…

Samsung Star 2 Reviewed

 

We review the Samsung Star 2, a sequel to Samsung's blockbuster, the Samsung Star. Can the new star shine as brightly as the original?

Today we review a long awaited phone, the Samsung Star 2, sequel to the original Samsung Star. With over 30 million units sold and probably one of the finest low-end feature phones ever made, the Star 2 has a prestigious reputation to live up to.

Samsung Star II

 

Almost two years on from the original Star, Samsung have announced its successor - the Samsung Star II. Both phones are pretty similar on paper, but Samsung have made some useful improvements to keep the Star II fresh.

Samsung Tocco Icon review

 

Compact, slick design, good call quality, affordable, easy to use, large screen

Poor screen resolution, tiny memory, basic apps, small onscreen keys

Overall, the Samsung Tocco Icon isn't a massive step up from the Tocco Lite, but the inclusion of a capacitive touchscreen is certainly a compelling reason to buy if you liked the original phone. The compact chassis, slick design and ease of use also...

Style icon or fashion disaster? We put this Wi-Fi-enabled feature phone through its paces.

Capacitive touch layer, Strong design

Unreliable touchscreen performance, Terrible app/games support, Limited widget library

Samsung Star II : Samsung GT-S5260 Star II

 

The first Samsung mobile handset I reviewed was a clamshell unit that could automatically open and close itself at the press of a button. It also came with two battery packs. Neither of these features can be found with this next Samsung handset.

You should be able to pick up this smartphone for around £80 as a pay as you go device. It is more suited to the social network brigade but could still appeal to others

Samsung Star II S5260

 

A successor to such a popular phone was imminent and Samsung released Star II in March 2011 – almost two years after the original phone release. If you compare the specifications of the phones it may seem as if they were twin brothers: they have almost...
