hi sir. been using samsung star for almost 2 months n. so far ok xa for me.

here's my personal opinion about its pros and cons:

cam--ok in ambient light surroundings pero d masyado pg low light n kc nga ala flash (using nokia 6500s as my main cam phone kaya i cud let it pass)

media player--ok n ok. from vids and music lalo pg ung dedicated headset nya.kso ala manual config for equalizer.preset lng. pg loudspeaker mode d ganun kalakas compared to xpress music cp.

response time--mabilis for a 10k touch cp. nkktuwa ung touchwiz nya. pati widgets and 3 desktop mode.

autorotate--mabilis din but not as fast as iphone (but less than 20k nmn s price. :-) )

java apps--pd mo xa iminimize.bsta nka-enable n s master menu nya

FBT--d ko p mconfigure kc iba ung network config nya.

all in all, for a 10k touch cp, 8/10 xa.

btw, naglabas n pla cla samsung star n either my tv or wi-fi.

hope this helps...

Samsung owner here, Preston nga lang (Star 3g). Yung Star yung phone na nirecommend ko sa friend ko, pa minsan minsan nagagamit ko sya tapos eto feed back ko.

Pros:
-mura
-maganda build quality
-okay cam, wala nga lang flash, pero may smile shutter
-QWERTY keyboard
-madami na widgets na pwede ma DL
-may GPS sya, over GPRS nga lang
-masya mag browse gamit yung OM 4.2 ni Thormentor (pag sa Samsung mo mismo binili, nandun na lahat pre-set settings)
-music capability is okay (Moto ROKR Z6 at E8 owner ako dati, halos kasing ganda ng quality)
-expandable hanggang 16gb mem pero mas stable ang 8gb

Cons:
-plastic build (pero yung pink daw metal yung back panel)

Suggestions:
-wait mo nalang yung Star Wi-Fi, pero kung nde mo naman kailangan ng Wi-Fi, good overall phone sya.

almost two weeks palang ako sa Star, so far good buy na talaga sya for me.

fast internet connection (i'm using OM 4.2 ni boss thor and UCIWeb)

fast touchscreen response na din sya.

gusto ko sana mag-upgrade ng frimware eh. safe kaya?

may nag-try na ba?

guys, yun po bang s inyo s5233s?

kasi yung akin di ko na inun-lock. readily accepted na nya mga java games.

i checked its FW, eh mukhang kung iuupdate ko, ang pamimilian ko is indian or chinese.

meron ata sa ibang forums na custom FW kaso i don't wanna risk it. ok na naman xa for me.

since proprietory ang OS nya, i don't expect customization similar to winmo and symbian devices.

lastly, ok nga ung widgets nya...

thanks. :-)

@ pierre27 sun user po ako ung proxy na nilagay ko is pang sun lng.
kung hindi ka po sun user search ka na lng ng proxy dito sa symbianize na magwowork sa network mo.
now kung ayaw pa ding gumana widget mu punta ka sa settings ng phone mo. then display and light tapos choose widget then setting tapos allow network on mu po un. tapos piliin mu po ung network setting na pinaglagyan mu ng proxy para sa connection ng widget mo. tapos punta ka po ng browser setting ung di po piliin mong connection ung nilagyan mu ng proxy.
and above all these make sure na activated gprs mo.
kay otor, ung google maps po sa games gps like po sya. may widget din yta un. it will consume airtime pala pagginamit mo un ng walang proxy address.

how to increase speaker volume of samsung. credits to DF1 of darkforest group forum: First thing to always remember,
is: THIS IS A POWER USER
GUIDE. Me, or DF2, DF3, or
Darkforest itself, are not
responsible for any damage to
you, or your phone.
This method was tested and
succesfull on M8800XXIC1
firmware version.
Ok once said this, let's start:
-Put the code *#6984125*#.
-Select Internals and put the code
*#9072641*#.
-Select Test Mode (3).
-Select Audio pressing 8.
Now two different things 1.- EAR
config and/or 2.-Mp3 config.
1.-EAR Config.
-Select Ear Config pressing 2.
-Select Call config pressing 3.
-Select EAR Rx Call Vol pressing
1.
Now you'll see from 0 to 6 the
levels of the volume.
-Press 6, and on top you will see
that it has changed from READ to
WRITE,
-Now press below the numbers
the space where you can write
and when the keyboard appears,
you can put the db you want,
maximum 12,3 db; always
remember that you need to
multiply by 10 the dbs you want,
i.e 10 db we'll put 100. In my
case i have put 100, and press
OK.
-When put you'll see it has
changed.
-Press back twice (until you see
"load params" "dump params")
-Select dump params pressing 2
and when it says "dumping
complete", it will be saved. Go
out from the menu.
Now when you put the volume to
maximum(EAR) it will have 10
db instead of 5 db.
2.-Mp3 Config.
-Select SPK Config pressing 3.
-Select AV-Qtune (MP3) pressing
4.
-Select SPK MP3 Vol pressing 1.
Now you'll see from 0 to 6 the
levels of the volume.
-Press 6, and on top you will see
that it has changed from READ to
WRITE,
-Now press below the numbers
the space where you can write
and when the keyboard appears,
you can put the db you want,
maximum 12,3 db; always
remember that you need to
multiply by 10 the dbs you want,
i.e 10 db we'll put 100. In my
case i have put 100, and press
OK.
-When put you'll see it has
changed.
-Press back twice (until you see
"load params" "dump params")
-Select dump params pressing 2
and when it says "dumping
complete", it will be saved. Go
out from the menu.
Now when you put the volume to
maximum(MP3) it will have 10
db instead of 5 db.

ive been using this phone for almost a week now. actually it wasnt the phone that i wanted this was supposed to be for my wife but she wanted me to use it instead.

Anyway, very much satisfied if we base it on the price. It sometimes works a bit slow and im now looking for an adaptor for me to use other earphones.

Im using it with internet via sun(thanks to symbianize people) and i use it to do my email. Cam is ok although its horrible in low lighting conditions. The only problem I have with this is that my thumb is too big and it sometimes hits two keys in one press. hehehe

Question: I have a 5233s. whats the difference between a 5230?

clark2324
2nd Oct 2009, 20:07
ang difference ng 5230 sa 5233s is ung 5230 is for european market, plus mahirap sya downloadan ng java apps.
ung 5233s naman is for asian market may easy java install sya.

go to network operator section then follow mo lang po yung thread dun ni sir thor or yung tut.how to set up your gprs connection section..
then manual configure mo na lang po yung settings like ips and web address.
sa phone browser mo..
