Samsung Galaxy Star S5282 Review

18 Jul, 13 03:22 PM

Overview

Affordable Android Smartphone

Samsung Galaxy Star is a budget phone by the Android marketplace ruler.

Samsung Galaxy Star Design and Build Quality

Weighing only 102 grams the phone is an attractive candy bar shaped device. The phone has curved edges, which give it a very trendy look. The phone’s dimensions are 58x104.95x11.9 mm. The phone fits comfortably in the hand and is very easy to operate. The phone is available in white and blue colours. The battery of the phone will last you comfortably for 14 hours comfortably.

User Interface and Comfort to Use Samsung Galaxy Star

The phone runs on Android Jellybean software, which is the latest of Android software. The phone has a comfortable 3 inch screen for you to view the pictures and videos comfortably. The processor is 1 GHz Cortex-A5 and the RAM is 512MB. The internal memory is 4GB. The memory can be extended for up to 32GB using a memory card. The phone’s onscreen keyboard fits comfortably on the screen and there is no lag in between typing and the characters appearing on the screen.

Telephony and Phonebook

The phone runs on 2G Dual SIM. Dual standby feature is available on the phone. The call quality is above average. Since the phone does not have 3G options, it does limit the phone capabilities. The phonebook of the phone can store any number of contacts. You can add pictures of the contacts and add email, address, and social media details. The handset only supports MicroSIM and therefore you will have to get your existing SIM cut in order to fit in the phone.

Messaging and Emails

SMS, MMS, email, and Push IM are the features available on the phone. SMS threaded view lets you view all the messages at once place.

Gallery, Photo Viewer and Video Player

The gallery and photo viewer of the phone are very basic. But you can get more options from the marketplace easily. The video player supports 3G2, 3GP, H.263, H.264, MPEG4, MKV WebM formats. The small screen limits the video viewing pleasure of the phone.

Samsung Galaxy Star Music Player and FM Radio

Music player on the phone is average. FM recording and stereo FM sound is quite pleasurable on the phone. Music app is easy to use. Recently listened songs are listed so that you don’t have to look for them every time you restart the app.

Samsung Galaxy Star Camera and Image Quality

The phone has a 2MP rear camera. The camera is very basic and you can take some decent pictures with it but they are not the best. The features of camera include Scene Mode, Shooting Mode, Effects, Brightness, Timer, White Balance, Metering, and Image Editor.

Video Camera and Video Quality

You can use the rear camera to record videos but they are not good to be used on PCs and TVs.

Samsung Galaxy Star Connectivity Options

Connectivity options on the phone include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Micro USB, Edge, and GPRS. The connectivity speed is quite good and we did not have any problems in connecting to any network.

Organiser and other Utility Tools

Calendar, Alarm, Clock and Calculator are the basic tools available on the phone. The organiser is very simple. Other important features include Wi-Fi Direct, S Planner, Voice Search, Security, Backup and Reset, Blocking Mode, FOTA, World Clock, Stopwatch, Desk Clock, Data Usage, Bluetooth Tethering, Text-to-speech Output, Shake to Update, Turn Over to Mute, and Voice Input

Samsung Galaxy Star Web Browser and Applications

Android browser on the phone is very good and responds quickly to hand inputs. The screen size limits the browser window size. Inbuilt applications on the phone include Samsung ChatON, Google, Notifications, Google Play Store, Samsung Apps, YouTube, Vast Apps and Content Storage, Gmail, Google+, Google Talk, Messenger, Widgets, Samsung Kies, Instant Messaging, Bookmarks

Value for Money

The phone is priced at INR 5100 (approx., may vary) in the Indian market. The phone’s price comes in budget range but the lack of a decent camera, 3G and lack of ability to play some of the games make the phone a pricey device.

Verdict

We would rate this phone 3.5 out of 5.
