Samsung Star II

Samsung Star’s successor will soon be launched in the Indian market. Star II (S5260) takes the helm from Samsung’s 30 million seller Star phone and brings the same social networking friendliness plus some improved features.

Star II runs on Samsung’s proprietary OS and features 3-inch WQVGA screen, TouchWiz UI 3.0, 3.2MP camera, Bluetooth, 1000mAh battery, QuickType T9 Trace keyboard, 3.5mm headphone jack, microSD card slot and Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n.

As we said, the Star II comes with a 3.0-inch touchscreen, which is now capacitive in contrast to the resistive one on the original Star. With a resolution of 240 x 400 pixels and 256K colors, the screen is slightly below average, but that's what you get for such a price. The visibility outside and the viewing angles are decent, though. Underneath the display are the call and end buttons, flanking the larger menu key in the center.

The silver sidelining of the Star II houses most of its other buttons. It includes the volume rocker on the left, while on the right are the microSD slot with support for up to 16GB of memory, and the power/lock key. The top part holds a microUSB charging slot with a protective lid, and the 3.5mm audio jack. Pretty standard, the only thing that really caught us is the microSD slot, which is comfortably positioned on the side and easily accessible without the need to remove the battery.
