Samsung S5600 review

 

We review the Samsung S5600 Preston/Blade touchscreen phone, an affordable, stylish 3G alternative to the Tocco Lite

Compact, slim design ; HSDPA high speed 3G connectivity ; Good screen action ; Widgets customisation ; Flash on camera ; Good quality music perfromance with 3.5mm adapter on earphones

Compact screen ; No Qwerty keyboard input option ; Text input numberpad could be better ; Average fixed focus camera

Effectively an upgraded version of the popular Tocco Lite, adding HSDPA high speed 3G connectivity to a good quality affordable touchscreen phone package

Samsung Star

 

The Samsung Star is a quadband GSM touch-screen cellphone with a WQVGA display, 3.2 megapixel camera, FM Radio, Bluetooth, HTML browser via GPRS and Edge, and Speakerphone.

Ease of use, affordability, good battery life.

No flash for the camera, no 3G browsing.

Samsung Star (S5230) mobile phone

 

Samsung's Star is an entry-level, prepaid mobile phone that features the company's TouchWIZ UI.

Compact, responsive touch screen, TouchWIZ UI, good on-screen keyboards, price ;

No 3G, screen isn't particularly sharp, widgets could be improved, no dedicated apps ;

Other features include a basic 3.2-megapixel camera without flash, a suite of PIM functions, an FM radio, voice recorder, music player and Bluetooth connectivity. A microSD card slot for extra storage is included, but it's under the battery so you'll...

Samsung S5600 preview: First look

 

Samsung have quite wisely decided to make the complacent LG Cookie smile go away. And they have released not one, but two devices to compete with it. The Samsung S5600 is one of them and luckily...

Attacking the midrange market the Samsung S5600 is a member of the new affordable touchscreen gang. Quite reminiscent of the HTC Touch with its size, shape and display, the Samsung S5600 is actually not a smartphone. It run on the proprietary Samsung...
