(S5260) Score: 4.05/10
Samsung - S5260 Star II Black WiFi Unlocked GSM QuadBand Cell Phone Samsung - S5260 Star II Black WiFi Unlocked GSM QuadBand Cell Phone

Samsung Star II is an outdated cellphone launched many years ago, equipped with a 3-inches capacitive screen and a 3.2 megapixels back camera. Great! That's it? Not at all, it's just the introduction of a much deeper review.

It appears that Samsung forgot about optimizing the weight in this 3.32 ounces device. This phone is 4.23 inches long and 2.13" wide, but it is only able to pack a much smaller 3" screen.

The Samsung Star II has only a 3.2 mega-pixels back side camera. The Samsung Star II also shoots videos up to 320x240 (QVGA) at 15 fps.

This cellphone is equipped with a interesting 400 x 240 3 inches display, which makes everything look quite nice. This display uses TFT capacitive technology, but it's not multi-touch.

This phone features wi-fi capability (but it can't be provided to other devices around, acting as a hotspot) or 3G internet connection, supported by EDGE technologies. This cellphone works with a SIM card for GSM services.

This device packs a 1000 mAh small capacity Li-Ion removable battery providing this cellphone with a not very long battery life. According to Samsung, the Samsung Star II has an estimated 8.3 hs talk time and a 900 hours stand by time.

The Samsung Star II also includes Bluetooth (3.0), and Accelerometer.

The Samsung Star II is not very cheap considering it is offerred for $ 79, while many similar phones are being sold much cheaper than that.
