Summary: It has all you want in a phone but the menus are sometimes hard. Does not have a good keyboard to write down the names of your contact. But it does want it supposed to do... make calls. I recommend the Android version if only it comes with the latest version.
Summary: Its small so easy to fit in a purse or in your pockets. I can listen to the radio and save my favorite stations. The only things I would say is a little problem is that you can only receive 300 MB (as pictures goes) nothing over that number wouldn't be able to download. And you also have to re-size picture that you've taken to send to individual. You can't text while in a conversation with someone or surf the net, kinda weird but that's how the phone operate.
Summary: I got this phone for my grandgirl and no contract required... its not activated yet but i wanted to share my thoughts. its not an expensive phone...but its a cute phone and if she losses it or it goes thru the washing machine, it wont be a BIG loss.. now keep in mind its small for small hands. its about 2 " wide and about 4 inches tall ..she will love it and i will be glad she has a phone on her at all times.
Excerpt: Hi, IS IT POSSIBLE TO INSTALL BADA OS ON SAMSUNG STAR WIFI, ANYBODY TRIED, DOES IT WORK ? Good phone, but too slow UI, specially if you are playing multimedia The 3.2 MP camera works fine during daylight but not so good at night because it does not have a flash. Well, we can't have it all considering the price but...it has smile recognition and other features like photo stitching, panorama, night shot, portrait, multi-shot, and most of all video recording.
Summary: You've read the specs on the phone; the screen is nice, the touch works about expected, the OS is laid out logically, and it has a few goodies & apps tucked away so that you feel its more than a basic phone. It also works with AT&T with no problem. Physically, the phone is light, smaller than it appears, and the battery seems to be fine, although I don't talk a lot on my phone.
Excerpt: I have it for a year now and i'm going to buy an iPhone next week. I'll keep the Star for my second SIM but i don't really like it.. Browsing is a nightmare, but when you use MSN, I installed the eBuddy app, and that is very good, handy, and fast. But its very slow, and it takes ages to load my messages and contacts when I reboot it. I listen music like the whole day and just load the battery once in 2 days, so i love the battery.
Pros: Battery, Sound, Connection
Cons: Very slow, Cheap picture display, Very simple phone
Summary: If you're look for a simple phone w/ a couple of a fun features this is just the phone for you. It gets an A+ for cuteness for sure. Some of the navigation screens are a lil bothersome...I had a Samsung eternity previously. This is quite similar, however this phone for example...the call log will also list text messages in it as well. So little things like that are a bit odd. Or having to confirm the speakerphone. I am pretty happy w/ it thus far. I've only had it a day.
