Samsung S5260 Star II preview: First look

 

A sequel to a bestseller, the Samsung S5260 Star II has good genes and a lot to live up to. Building on a successful recipe is a shortcut to success and that's exactly what Samsung have done with the Star follow-up. The latest TouchWiz...

We had some nice time with the Samsung Star II. We used an early pre-production sample for this review so there are bound to be changes in the user experience.

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 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
