As promised, a review on the Samsung S5233W, also known as –  Samsung Star. \<ˆεˆ>/~☆

In this entry, you’ll find out its highlighted features, camera and video functions and quality, miscellaneous functions and more.

NB: This version of Samsung Star that I’m reviewing HAS NO 3G.


It has been a week now since I bought this phone and by far, no technical problem has occurred — thankfully.

The External Parts of Samsung Star

There are 3 colors available for Samsung Star: White, black and metallic pink.

The screen size is 400 x 240 pixels. Compare its full body size to an iPhone, it’s slimmer and less broader. So take note, you CAN’T use an iPhone cover for Samsung Star because the size don’t complement. Bummer…I know. (Laughs nervously)

The phone is solid, nonetheless. No plastic feeling. <^-^>lll

About the interface…

(Laughs) For somebody who has been using phones with solid buttons, I somehow managed to adjust myself with the touch screen interface.

Yup! Samsung Star is a full touch screen phone~☆. ↓

The sensitivity of the touch censor is just nice, not highly sensitive to a touch neither do you have to tap so hard. There are of course, some useful solid buttons to make navigation easier and faster.

At the bottom, there are 3 buttons being: The ‘Call’ Button, The ‘Back’ Button, and The ‘Cancel’ button which is also the switch off button.

And then at the left side, there’s the volume and zoom button. The battery charger and earphone outlet can also be found on the left side of the phone. ↓

It opens like a latch, which is similar to the LG KF350 Ice-cream phone. ↓

Be careful when leaving the latch open. Don’t brush against it roughly or it might just break off seeing it’s quite loosely intact. >_<

Now on the right side of the phone, there’s the ‘LOCK’ button and ‘Camera’ button. ↑

Having the camera button by the side makes it even more convenient to snap pictures as well as being a quick button to the camera function.

This is how the back of the phone looks like, by the way. ↓

As you can see, there is no flash embedded to the camera. I’ll give you more details on the camera’s usability and quality later in this entry.

But first, we go through the external parts of the phone.

On its top right, a stylus can be pulled out from there. ↓

That goes to say, big thumbs— there’s a stylus to make input easier for you, especially when it comes to ticking small boxes!

Moving on to —

Interacting with the Samsung Star

Let’s begin with the desktop screen. ↓

Samsung Star has a widget sidebar, consisting of shortcuts to files and other applications.

In addition, you can drag out the thumbnail of your choice and leave it on your desktop as shown below. ↓

I dragged out the ‘Games’ shortcut. You can situate it anywhere on the screen. You can drag it back into the sidebar widget as well.

If the screen is too crowded, don’t worry. You have 2 extra desktops. ↓

You can simply swap to the right and left screens, which function as your alternate desktops.

However, changing the front’s wallpaper isn’t going to be very convenient, especially when you want to have different pictures for each slides.

Changing/Customizing the Background

Maybe I haven’t figure out an easy way yet but for the time being, here’s what I do:

Create a new canvas of 720 x 400 pixels, using Adobe Photoshop or any program that allows you to edit pictures. For the 3 different pictures of your choice, you have to make sure they are exactly 240 x 400 pixels. That means you have to crop out any excessive parts.

After you have cropped them out nicely, drag them to the 720 x 400 pixels canvas and arrange them to the order of your choice, like which do you want to be set in the middle and so on.


Troublesome…Yea… <_  _>lll

As for themes, sadly there are only 2 themes available: Red and Green. ↓

Though, you can change the background of the Menu to your liking. But the black opacity remains.

Note: There are 2 tabs on the top: Main Menu and the Shortcut Tab which will take you to Communications and to other applications.

For more customization, Samsung Star allows you to select your choice of Font Type. ↑

Methods of Inputting Text

The good thing about Samsung Star’s text input is that there are 3 ways to do so.

First being the standard method of keying in the text. ↓

The virtual buttons are reasonably big, so it’s like tapping on a solid button thus easy to adjust your reflexes.

If you prefer using the QWERTY keypad, tilt the phone horizontally and it will activate the QWERTY keypad function. ↓

It’s easier to switch to symbol and number mode however, the keys are much smaller. With that, perhaps the stylus might be favorable to you.

And if you’re not down with that — The Handwriting function is at your disposal. <o_o>

Therefore, there are alternatives to make texting easier and more convenient. <^-^>b

Wi – Fi Feature

Samsung Star’s Wi-Fi feature is very simple to use. Click on the application and it will lead you to the screen above. Tap on the round Wi-Fi button and it’s activated. Next thing to do is tap the ‘Search’ virtual button and it will search for Wi-Fi networks within the area. Samsung Star’s Bluetooth works the same way too.

Speaking of connecting to the Internet, the browser program quite standardize. You can view it in landscape mode just by tilting the screen.

About installing another browser, namely Opera Mini — please scroll down to the Nifty-Gritty section. <^v^>/

Camera and Video Quality

Samsung Star is equipped with a 3.2 mega pixel camera — NO flash and NO auto-focus feature. The quality is quite satisfying but taking photos indoors and dim-lighted places might be a disappointment.

So if you want to enhance the photos, you can toggle the scene mode; Sun light, cloudy, fluorescent — to whichever is appropriate. Plus, you can adjust the brightness. There are also other features such as the Smile Shot, Burst Shots and so on.

Anyway, here are some photos that I took using the Samsung Star phone. ↓

[Sorry, I don't have anything nice to take photos of. Been staying indoors most of the time. (Laughs nervously)]

Taken in a room, lighting ain’t that good so…. ↑

So is the quality up to your satisfaction? You think about it yourself. (Laughs)

But I must admit, the quality isn’t so sharp and crispy. The colors aren’t too vibrant either. <T_T>

Editing and Enhancing the Photos

Editing a picture using the Samsung Star can be rather fun for you can add a memo, text, emoticons and clip art on the screen.

My favorite is the ability to scribble some stuffs on the picture, with the help of the stylus. (Laughs)

I made a mess out of Auwlithe’s face… (Laughs nervously) ↑ <^-^>lll

Video Quality

The video below is a sample video that was recorded using the Samsung Star. See for yourself…

… I know…Sheep is not a good and fluent speaker. <;__;> (Tears)

Other Nifty-Gritty

Battery Life

Life span of the battery is a let down. With minimum use, it can last up to maybe 3 days. It really depends on how much you use your phone. It can drop a bar in one or more in one day.

Therefore to really conserve its energy, I suggest you switch off the Vibration Feedback. The vibration will response whenever you tap on an icon or so thus, unnecessary battery drainage.

Switch it off, including key tones if you are alright with that.

Try to minimize the unneccessaries and Samsung Star should be able to keep up with you. <^v^>/

Memory Card

According to the manual, Samsung Star can accept an 8GB MicroSD card. As for its phone memory, baa — Not sure. <_  _>lll


(Laughs nervously)

Sorry, sheep can’t help you here. Sheep is also facing difficulties in setting up her Gmail account. I keep getting the DNS error. <≥A≤>/

I also tried for Hotmail but the settings were to no avail.

Suppose I manage to figure this out, I update this entry.

Opera Mini

For a few days, I had problems installing Opera Mini 4.2 into the Samsung Star. For a start, it appears that there isn’t a version meant for Samsung Star. I tried downloading versions that were meant for other Samsung Stars but it was futile.

Finally, I found another way!

Sheep downloaded the Opera Mini ver.4.2 for Nokia N79 and installed into Samsung Star — Successfully! <OAO>!

You can download it here: Click

Select version for N79.

And voila~

If it doesn’t work, then the problem probably lies in your browser profile or network setting. This, sheep can’t help you. <_  _>lll


Other tools include:

  • Voice recorder
  • Loud speaker (when on call)
  • Memo (can lock it with a pin number for privacy)
  • Stop watch
  • World clock
  • Converter (length, height, currency etc)
  • Alarm
  • Calculator

!! Finale !!

All in all, personally Samsung Star is quite an ok phone. I have no complaints…Other than it keeps reverting to phone memory as default storage after I plug it in the comp to make transfers. <_  _>lll

At this moment, everything seems fine and dandy. No technical problems and not much difficulties in interacting with the phone.

To this end, may my review be of help~! <^-^>/

Ms Aya the sheep, making a run now.

subarashii review desu!
Wow, Sheep-chan makes the phone more lovely and awesome-ish =)

I like the video XD
Sushi da!~
Hehehe seems like Sheep-chan too cautious with her sentence in the video ^^”"”

Souka, but I wonder why there are only 2 themes available, like LG Ice Cream.
Dino will get bored easily if the themes cannot be changed.

I like one of your desktop. Rainbow background =)
If I have this phone..I might consider putting Shou and Tora as my wallpapers xDDDD hehehehe

Dear Dino-chan

Thanks. (Laughs nervously) Yea, I had to be careful with the way I speak. Sheep isn’t a good speaker.

Kind of sad that only 2 ordinary-looking themes are available. Was hoping for more colors and patterns. U guess Nokia and Sony Ericsson phones beat other to this.

The rainbow is sweet, isn’t it? (Laughs) Shou and Tora! Who will be in the middle kana? (^v^*)

Nice nice … The touch screen sounds convincing … LOL … First step technology towards Dead Space RIG !!! LOL !!

Oh about battery life, is like that de la … My battery last time can last 3 days with SMS’s and listening to music …

Now maybe 2 days it run out already …

Unless someone invented ‘NUCLEAR’ battery … LOL !

Konbanwa, Sheep-chan!

I’m always grateful when reading such product reviews by Sheep-chan. It really helps if you are considering getting a new phone.

Also, it seems that the camera and video quality of your new phone are not too bad at all! or perhaps it is just Sheep-chan’s photography abilities, that makes absolutely everything look pretty! *envious!*

mah… what does the opera mini programme do?

September 17th, 2009 at 10:24 pm

Woah awesome review again!
A touch screen phone now seems pretty tempting to me lol, and I really enjoy that video hehe~~ I love your Baa~~^^

And You know ever since I came across to your LG Ice Cream review I become addicted to your blog haha (of course considering the fact that it’s your review that makes me decided to buy that Ice Cream phone~!)

By the way I noticed the notebook behind your phone, do you usually write down your entries first before typing in? Coz I do so sometimes, especially when I dont have the computer near me haha

6.  dino-chan
September 18th, 2009 at 9:36 am

Middle kana…..
nyahaha XD

The more I look into the phone, nanka…suki ni nachatta mitai *_*

W705 W705!!!!!

Is it okay while wi-fi-ing?
Any problem searching the connection?

Hi hi.. I was just wondering how much is the price range?

8.  Sandage
September 18th, 2009 at 11:14 pm

Cool!, you scribble your entries on a notebook before actually posting them…like me^^. This new phone of yours seems like a nice device :)

I’m not into touch-screen gadgets though, because for some strange reason tapping on a touch screen makes my hands sweat, and sweaty hands is in my “things I really, really, really hate” top 5 list, but I liked it, goes with your girlish personality.

OMFG!, I wish there was a challenge like that in one of the japanese food joints I regularly visit, it’d be piece of cake to make my noodle bowl free, I can eat a ton of that thing^^. I’ll just have to stick to the happy-hour chinese food buffete!.

Dear Pix

(Laughs) Dead Space technology is on-screen. Don’t have to bury your head to check your inventory and missions. I especially like the map trail; very easy to follow.

Nuclear? Hey, we’ve talked about this before! We might end up destroying the world if we drop our phones! (Laughs)

Dear Krayle

You’re scouting for a new phone? (Laughs)
Opera Mini is a mobile browser that allows you to surf the net. It minimizes the size and photos (as well as cost of surfing, I think) so that it won’t take too long to load.

Haha, I simply snap photos. Sometimes they are crooked or so. (Laughs nervously)

Dear kioko

Baa~ I hope that addiction of yours isn’t serious. (Laughs) It would be problematic.

Hey, you just got your ice-cream phone so don’t think of other phones just yet! (Laughs)

Regarding your question, yes — I write the points in my notebook before blogging. Not for every entry though. Just so I won’t lose grasp of my thoughts and ideas.

Haha, we’re writers! \(^v^*)/

Dear Dino-chan

Akan’ ya! W705 is waiting to fall in your hands. Don’t betray it! (Laughs)

This phone’s Wi-Fi is ok. No problems so far. When I have difficulties connecting, it’s the Wi-Fi’s signal, not the phone’s fault.


Dear Candice IceY

I bought mine for RM1190. No goodies (Eg: Memory card, cover) included. Bought it from Samsung retail itself. Else where, I have no clue to how much they are selling, sorry.

Dear Sand

That makes the 3 of us; Sand, kioko and sheep. (Laughs) We scribble notes before we blog! Wooo!

…What are the remaining 4? (Laughs) (^-^)/

Hehe, how about you drop this challenge idea into their suggestion box? (^v^) (Laughs) Worth a shot. And if you really do down that huge bowl of noodles, do record a video of your glory! (Laughs)

10.  Sandage
September 19th, 2009 at 12:59 am

Actually there is a video of that, I don’t know if I’m gonna have the nerve to upload it anytime soon but I’m gonna try when I feel ready to take the shame… I mean, even a man looks disgusting eating like a piggy swine :lol:

I’m not sure if they even have a box for suggestions, I think I’m gonna have to suggest a suggestion box for starters ha ha ha.

11.  kioko
September 19th, 2009 at 10:36 pm

LOL dont worry~~ I dont think it’s a bad sort of addiction but I truly enjoy reading your blog^-^ I love how the entries all sound so light-hearted (and sometimes serious and meaningful~)

I would NEVER think of any phone just yet haha, especially I’ve ALWAYS want a flip-japanese-DoCoMo-look-alike phone hehe (KAT-TUN has advertised for DoCoMo phones so having this Ice-Cream phone can remind me of them xD)

*Nods* same here! Funny enough ideas usually spark up when I’m wandering around doing nothing lol

12.  Ms Aya
September 19th, 2009 at 10:45 pm

Dear Sand
Awesome! Hurry up and find the guts to air that video, man!
Maybe you can give me a few pointers on how to eat fast and furious!
(Laughs)Good luck on that. (^-^)lll
Dear kioko
(Cries in joy) My thoughts and ideas are being accepted as meaningful. Uwaa~~~! You’re too kind!
Oh yes, I saw the commercials. I wonder if the phones are cool or Kat-Tun made them look extra cool…Oh come on, Japan…Don’t be so selfish! Make your phones more user-friendly to other countries, please! This may help their economics grow!!!
(Laughs) True. So we must never leave home without a notebook and a pen! (^v^)/

Sheep-chan! well, if your pictures are crooked, they are artistically so! (: and yes, I am looking for a new phone, or rather, just hoping that I will be able to get an iPhone soon… ):

14.  Ms Aya
September 20th, 2009 at 11:45 pm

Dear Krayle

Cool, an iPhone! What color are you getting? Black or white? Wait! Let me guess — Black?
Because I see most people owning a black iPhone rather than white. I wonder if there are any differences. (_ _)lll Baa~

15.  kioko
September 21st, 2009 at 1:39 pm

haha I do meant it, like your reviews and “how to write a good blog” posts~ I learnt a lot and most daily posts are fun to read too^-^
Maybe KAT-TUN makes the phone extra cool? LOL I have actually seen the real things on sale here, but they’re a tiny bit expensive and the phones gotta be unlocked first, so that means not all the functioms can be used – not to mention the everything in the phone is all in japanese~~

Yupyup pen and a notebook are things I wouldnt go without when I go out hehe~ what else you wouldnt go without?

16.  krayle
September 22nd, 2009 at 10:31 am

I have no idea! When the time comes, I will see which matches better. :D D perhaps I will get the white just to be special. But then again, an iPhone is still a very far-off dream for me. ):

17.  Ms Aya
September 22nd, 2009 at 6:47 pm

Dear kioko
It’s a pity, some functions can’t be used. Somehow will have the incomplete and handicap feeling. Otherwise it would be a dream come true for all the docomo fans. (Laughs)
Baa, I bring a book and a dictionary along. The English dictionary is very useful but the downside is — too many things too lug. Plus, feel awkward entering bookshops with so many books in my arms. People might get the idea that sheep is stealing. (Tears)
Dear Krayle
Don’t say that. Who knows? Someone might present it to you. (Laughs)
Besides iPhone, what other phones are you prospecting?

18.  krayle
September 22nd, 2009 at 11:19 pm

Dear Sheep-chan,
I considered importing a keitai from Japan for the longest time! but I know that as much as it is pretty, it will cause me alot of grief from not being able to use its functions fully, simply because the newer and prettier phones just cannot be unlocked fully. ): has Sheep-chan considered doing that before?

September 23rd, 2009 at 11:51 am

yosh! new phone!!!! LOOK NICE! and with the ).( too! :D

20.  kioko
September 23rd, 2009 at 3:22 pm

*Nods nods* totally but I guess I would definitely get a docomo phone once i start earning my own money^^
I cannot go without my wallet (duh!), iPod, phone,lipbalm, camera and a pack of tissue lol

21.  Ms Aya
September 25th, 2009 at 12:08 am

Dear Krayle
ALMOST wanted to buy a Japanese keitai. I even e-mailed for more inquiries. But before I could decide whether to get a Japanese keitai, I then discovered the ice-cream phone. (Laughs)
I read from here and there that using a Japanese keitai in our country is very inconvenient to the point we have to format the files before we can transfer to the comp. [?]
Dear Spit
(Laughs) ) . ( If don’t control my diet, sheep will be like this in no time: /( . )\
The normal male body: | . |
Dear kioko
A pack of tissue! A must-have in a girl’s bag!
To clean the tables and toilet bowl seats!
The other day, sheep ran out of tissue and had to bear with the wet toilet seats. (Shivers)
Then when I read kioko’s comment on my cellphone — sheep regretted not reading it any earlier. (Tears)

22.  kioko
September 25th, 2009 at 10:52 am

LOL! Totally~~
Usually I will have more than one pack of tissue too, and it just keep everything clean (and one of most important things of all – your pack of tissue can be your life-saver when you happened to go into a toilet cubicle which runs out of tissue paper ><)

23.  krayle
September 25th, 2009 at 11:46 pm


I’m not so sure about the reformating files, but I know that ultimately you won’t quite get your money’s worth for the whole hassle of shipping over and stuff. Because alot of the functions are unable to be unlocked outside of Japan. But of course, some people would still put up with it for the sake of having a unique and cool phone… (:

That’s why I was quite surprised that you had gotten a new phone so fast. Was the ice cream phone serving you that badly? ):

24.  Saruchan
September 26th, 2009 at 5:59 pm

Awesome phone !! How much is it ? I might want to get one , since my phone is breaking down .. ( i know it has only been a year ) .. I bet its cheaper than the iphone @___@

25.  Ms Aya
September 30th, 2009 at 6:58 pm

Dear kioko
True, true!
Some women can be very inconsiderate by taking as much tissue as they can for themselves! Well, it happens here a lot.
Dear Krayle
There’s nothing wrong with my ice-cream phone — at all. I just wanted a Wi-Fi phone and I have to admit, I got this Samsung phone out of my spur of the moment. (o_o)
By the time everything seeped in, I was like, “Damn! Did I just buy a phone!? I thought it was just a thought! A mere thought!”
The power of credit card.. (Cries)
Dear Saru-chan
I bought mine for RM1190. You can get it much cheaper, as low as RM850+. With 3G or not, I don’t know.
Haha, in my Twitter — you want me to give you my Samsung phone? (Laughs) Dear, it’s pink in color.

where did you get the samsung star???

29.  Saigon Tom
October 2nd, 2009 at 9:16 pm

When you get the DNS error with wifi, turn off the phone, wait a few seconds, turn on again. Re-connect to the wifi and it will work. Don’t know why this happens but it happens fairly often. Otherwise the wifi works great and the browser is OK. Opera does not support landscape mode or I’d switch to that. Text input is also more difficult with Opera.

30.  Ms Aya
October 3rd, 2009 at 12:27 am

Dear Chocolate
…Got it from a handphone shop? Samsung retailer shop.
Dear Saigon
Thanks for sharing some useful information here.
For the latest Opera Mini (4.2), you can browse in landscape mode.

hei, i juz wana ask which 1 of it better, ice cream or samsung?
both of it attracted me >w< .
i cant decide which to buy.

i do sms alot samsung was easier,
but i like the cute patern like icecream oso TwT

32.  Ms Aya
October 22nd, 2009 at 2:34 pm

Dear Winnie
Well, since you sms a lot, you better consider properly whether you want a Samsung Star because it’s a touch screen base phone.
If you can handle touch screen interface very skillfully, then it should be convenient for you to sms.
Also, it depends what features and functions you are targeting, such as camera quality, memory storage, sound, wifi and so on.
By the way, if you want Samsung Star, do keep in mind that there is a 3G version of Samsung Star (can make video calls).

33.  Winnie

38.  Ms Aya
November 4th, 2009 at 11:14 pm

Dear Transk
In your desktop, click the side button (the external volume button) and a wheel will appear. Set it to zero.
It will however, not only mute the beeping tone while smsing but also each time you tap on something, that beeping tone is gone.

39.  transk_d7
November 5th, 2009 at 6:44 am

Dear Aya,
thnx 4 d swift response, it did help my concern.Just one more thing, I want to know if you also experience the life span of the battery is so disappointing? I mean I had it fully charged, the next thing I know for only a half day of use (text,music,some calls..) it is already drained? what gives?tsk tsk tsk….thnk u so much…


40.  Ms Aya
November 7th, 2009 at 12:52 am

Dear Transk
In a day, I can take lots of pictures and sms but only a bar will drop. Perhaps you can try switching off the vibration feedback and minimize the backlight timing or something?

48.  Ms Aya
November 24th, 2009 at 2:40 pm

In the front desktop of your phone, click the side buttons (which is the volume buttons). You can lower the keypad tone and vibration feedback by doing so.

53.  Ms Aya
November 26th, 2009 at 6:15 pm

Dear Borum
No, I don’t think you can download new fonts. As for the drawing pad, I’ve never used LG Cookie before so I don’t know.
Dear Jean
That, I’m not sure. I never tried it before, sorry.

54.  Bo Rum
November 28th, 2009 at 11:44 am

Dear Bo-rum
I don’t know the difference. Sorry.
A smart phone is a multi-purpose phone which enables you to do lots of things apart from phone calls and text messages. Smart phones lets you keep memos, organize schedules, take pictures, surf the Internet…I guess that’s what a smart phone is.
Dear Tamer
You’re welcome. (^-^)

hi Sheep….

Excellent review,,,,,,,, waiting for u r updates on the same,,,,,, especially WIFI connectivity and the camera clarity,,,,,,,

keep in touch


64.  Ms Aya
January 14th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

Dear Anup

About the Wi-Fi, it’s very good. Easy to connect and if a password is required to use the network, just type the password in the ‘Network Key’.

Let’s say the password is long and you can’t key in more than the provided letters, in the same category, go to ‘Key Length’ and select ’128 bits’.

As for camera quality, you can look up my recent blog posts because I’ve been using my Samsung Star to capture pictures.

65.  Kat
February 11th, 2010 at 5:55 am

Great review. :) I want the white version of this phone <333 LOL~ The camera seems pretty good too. Gawd. I just wish my dad would really buy it for me. *A*!!

66.  Ms Aya
February 11th, 2010 at 5:22 pm

It’s not that bad. With minimal usage (i.e switch off the vibration feedback, beep tones) it can last.

Hype ms Aya~! nice review for the phone. I just bought it this morning, the white version.

Juz want to ask, why do it always occured ‘dns error’ message wheneva im connecting to my Uni Wifi. didn’t try with other free wifi yet, but its frustrating although it is a good phone.

btw, love ur review~!

73.  Ms Aya
February 20th, 2010 at 11:02 pm

Dear Amrulz

Did you key in the password to your Uni’s Wi-Fi?

In case you didn’t, here’s how:

When you save the profile (if you already did, go to ‘Browser’, ‘Browser Profiles’ and then to your Uni’s profile.

Look for ‘Network Key’. That is where you key in the password to your chosen browser profile.

Suppose you are unable to key in your password entirely (for instance the password is very lengthy), go to ‘Key Length’ and select ’128 bits’.

If it still doesn’t work, change your Index ID. Other people could have already been using 1. So try 2 and so on.

I hope this helps.

Dear Carole

I got this similar problem when I was changing it to a 8GB card. I couldn’t format it via phone and computer so I gave it to my uncle. Not sure if he exchanged for a new card or asked the phone shop keeper to do the reformatting.

Sorry, I can’t help you much here. (Tears)

77.  carole
February 26th, 2010 at 11:25 am

Nah its okay..I think its already okay now. I just reformat it on my pc and on my phone for about 5 times and i’ve taken and inserted the micro sd card then puff1!!!it worked!!!

Thanks for the concern though. (=

love your review!

Many thanks,

Dear Aya,

I got another problem regarding my wifi. I am connected but i cannot open any site like google or yahoo. I think im in a good spot to connect to a wifi.

Hope you could help me..



79.  Ms Aya
February 26th, 2010 at 5:01 pm

Dear Carole

The Wi-Fi network that you connect to, did it require any password?

If so, please refer to comment no.74, which is above.

Suppose you’ve already done so, try switching off and then on your phone again.

Hope this works.

80.  melody
March 6th, 2010 at 2:23 pm

Hi, Seems like you have been using Star wifi and it works quite well. I’ve just bought 1 and there’s problem with my wifi. Somehow i manage to connect, but unable to browse. It stated authentication failed, followed by DNS failed.

Any advice regarding to this? Your help will be much appreciated ^^

81.  hyo-rin
March 7th, 2010 at 12:18 pm

But i never like the model Samsung. (no offend to Samsung-lover) It’s just me~
I’m most probably go for the LG Ice-cream. Which is most suit my personality~ Thinking of buying it soon~ Just need to collect some more money~
Sorry if this is out of topic. I had already read your previous and it is so kawai with the sheep and dog~
I’m an animal lover. Especially cat, dog and bunny~
By the way, how did bunny makes a sound?? ;p gome~ for being idiot..hyo-rin is really baka girl. ;p

82.  Ms Aya
March 7th, 2010 at 4:25 pm

Dear Melody

Please refer to comment no. 74 and 80, which is about keying the password or restarting your phone.

When I first got this phone, I also had problems connecting to the Wi-Fi. I later discovered for those that requires password, I had to follow the steps stated in comment no.74.

Otherwise, switch on and off the phone.


Dear Hyo-Rin

I don’t particularly love any brands too. Whatever I can adapt, I just do so. (Laughs)
Bunnies don’t make sounds. Maybe very silent squeaks but no apparent sounds. (Laughs)

i got a problem when i connect my samsung star..

it has already connected to internet,but still can’t browse..

can you give me some info?

thanks ^_^

85.  Ms Aya
June 20th, 2010 at 11:30 pm

Dear Ivana

What error did you get?

DNS or Authentication Failed?

You can try deleting the Internet profile and then restart your phone. After that, add the profile again. If a password is needed, key in the password under ‘Network Key’. Suppose the password is long, set the ‘Key Length’ to ’128 bits’ before keying in the Network Key. That ought to work.

86.  Gurpuneet Sahota
July 6th, 2010 at 4:50 pm

what about the DNS error while configuring e-mail??? is it solved please tell

87.  Ms Aya
July 6th, 2010 at 8:15 pm

Dear Gurpuneet Sahota

That problem has only been half-solved. Sorry.
I managed to configure my e-mail (Hotmail) and use Wi-Fi to retrieve e-mails however, I can’t seem to send e-mails out.

Even when I set my email profile to my service provider, it still fails.

But if you want to at least be able to retrieve mails, here’s how you can set up your e-mail account in your phone:

For Hotmail –

For Gmail –

For Yahoo! –

Then you can set your Email Profile to be responsible for retrieving your e-mails. Set to a Wi-Fi network and it should do the trick.

89.  Ms Aya

Switch off and then on your phone.

It’s either that, or you did not enter the network key.

Try these 2 and it should help. (^-^*)

Hi Ms. Aya..

Just wanna ask if the Samsung S5233w also has a pop out SNS Widget just like on the Samsung S3653w?..I’ll buy this phone at the end of this month, i just want to make sure if it do has a pop out SNS .Hope you could help me before i purchase the phone….Thanks!!!

91.  Ms Aya
July 22nd, 2010 at 7:37 pm

Dear Deckz

Mmm…I can’t find such widget in my Samsung Star…I don’t think it has it and not sure if it can be downloaded. There’s very little widgets to download so don’t put too much hope to get that widget.

92.  deckz
July 24th, 2010 at 8:51 pm

does it have a SNS (facebook,twitter) shortcut on its sidebar that you can drag out like other apps??

93.  Ms Aya

Oh those… Yes, it has for MySpace, Facebook, Youtube, Photobucket, Flickr, Picasa and Friendster.

Don’t have Twitter unfortunately.

Hi, i bought this phone (out of impulsiveness!) two days ago. This is a very good review. Thanks to this, I feel that I made a good ‘decision’ buying it. heehee. i’m SUPER loving it.

However, i have a question. Do you how to get rid of the NO EVENT icon in the widgets bar? If it’s Not “Removable”, what is it for then? I’m sorry if the question is dumb or whatever, ’cause I really have no idea what it is. Thanks!

96.  Ms Aya
August 3rd, 2010 at 7:20 am

Dear Pre

Yay! An addition to Samsung Star users!

You can’t get rid of the ‘No Event’ widget. I tried it before. The most you can do is put it back at the bottom if it really annoys you. (_ _)

97.  starrr
August 3rd, 2010 at 9:32 am

In the manual, it says it can support up to 8GB MicroSD, but can it support a 16GB? What size of MicroSD are you using? Tnx! ^_^

98.  Ms Aya
August 3rd, 2010 at 9:21 pm

Dear Starr

8GB is said to be the highest it can support. Any higher, not sure of the risk. (_ _)
I’m using 8 GB by the way. And it’s operating well, no lags and of that sort. (maybe because there aren’t too many files in use…)

99.  mimi
August 10th, 2010 at 5:58 pm

hello Ms.Aya,

i got problem with my fone because when i charge the fone it becomes hot even it is just been charging 30mins.. i dont know what’s the problem, if its the fone or just the battery..

i dont now what to do.. :’(

100.  Ms Aya
August 10th, 2010 at 8:54 pm

Oh dear…

To be sure, when you charge.. First, check your battery to see if it is put properly. Remove and check for burn marks then put it back. Second.. be certain that the charger wire is plugged in properly..If it’s not, you may feel some electric leakage..

If it overheats the phone in such a short time, 15 – 30 minutes…The problem should be the battery.. Go back to the shop where you bought it, present the warranty card and receipt. Should be able to change for a new battery.

Dear Deckz

You can use your phone and download from:

Then install it into your phone~


Oh…read this just in case:

So that you can activate Wi-fi instead of deducting your phone credit while surfing the net using Opera Mini.

103.  deckz
August 11th, 2010 at 7:35 pm

hi agen ms. aya..i just installed opera mini on my phone and its really really good but how come i can’t play youtube and facebook videos?? it says “you can only use this apps when connected using wifi”,how’s that??

104.  deckz
August 11th, 2010 at 7:37 pm

105.  Ms Aya
August 12th, 2010 at 9:16 pm

Dear Deckz

You can watch Youtube videos using Opera Mini. Please go to the link I gave above which I explained how to use Opera Mini on Wifi mode. (^v^)/

Flash can’t be viewed in our phones, it seems…I have not tried downloading though… (_ _)

106.  deckz
August 13th, 2010 at 7:14 pm

i still can’t play youtube videos on my phone..when i click on it will show save and open file,when i click open it will begin to download,how’s that? i really can’t find a way on how to play youtube videos..

107.  Ms Aya
August 15th, 2010 at 5:18 pm

Oh, it will buffer the video. Then you can watch.

When you click on the “Watch Video”, this message should come out: Allow Opera Mini to Launch?

Tap ‘Allow..’ and then another prompt will come out which is ‘Application Paused. Continue?’
Tap on ‘Yes’

And it will buffer..load and play.

Some videos are however unable to be played on mobile phones. Note that. (^-^)/

108.  deckz
August 15th, 2010 at 10:50 pm videos can only play when im on wifi mode but when im using local service provider it really can’t play any kind of video from the web..that i could not understand..

109.  Ms Aya
August 18th, 2010 at 10:54 am

Ok..this I don’t know. (_ _)

111.  Ms Aya

Dear Arlyn

Ah~ Another one interested in Samsung Star~

It’s quite a good phone but to be sure, test drive it when you’re at the shop along with the other phone you’re prospecting, to get assurance.

Enjoy shopping for your phone~ (^-^)/

113.  Ms Aya
August 22nd, 2010 at 6:41 pm

Dear Reah

For Facebook, you have to e-mail/mms to a special address..I think. But to upload any files from Opera Mini to the web, you have to have an Opera Mini account or something like that.

As for Youtube…Weird…How come some of you are having problems with this…

What version of Opera Mini are you using? (.___.)

114.  reah

116.  Ms Aya
August 26th, 2010 at 9:04 pm

Dear Reah

There shouldn’t be a need to install Javascript…Do check if you have enabled your Javascript. That could be the problem. Using the default browser in your Samsung Star, can you watch videos?


Dear Arlyn

Congratulation on being a proud owner of nokia 5530!

Is it better than Samsung Star by the way, in your opinion? What bested Samsung Star?

Don’t worry! Sheep won’t hurt you! (Laughs) (^w^)

117.  arlyn
August 27th, 2010 at 7:02 pm

Thanks Ms Aya!
Well, for me there a lot of similar between Nokia 5530 and Samsung star wifi and as i said on my letter to you the only thing that convinced me to choose Nokia is just that the themes are down loadable and lots of setting are customizing unlike with Samsung its limited. And for me what i like the most about Samsung are the 3 desktop available on star and the cute widgets uhm.. maybe thats it.. hehe.. till then Ms Aya.. love your site >^.^<

118.  Ms Aya
August 29th, 2010 at 12:48 am

Dear Arlyn

Ah~ Customizable themes. Then you made the right choice to go with Nokia. For Samsung Star, not only you can’t download new themes, the preset ones (there are 2; red and green) aren’t very appealing.

Anyway, have fun with your Nokia and take good care of it~ Thanks for the love too! (Laughs)

Your blog is so kawaii, i have also Samsung Star, but is so difficult found some background, can you recommend some free website please?
In Italy there isn’t the pink color of this phone, only white (my) or blak!
Do you know how and where is possible to include the game in the telephone? Because the game that i move from the pc to the telephone dont’t start and appear a message that say ‘an error as accured’, something like this..also, do you know how receved and sand an e-mail (like a message, not on the web).
Thank you!!!
By have a nice day

138.  Ms Aya
January 25th, 2011 at 9:34 pm

Dear Yuya

You can try here:


I haven’t tried downloading games so far therefore, can’t help you out in that department, sorry. (;__; )

As for E-mail, I know how to set up for Hotmail but oddly though, can only receive but can’t send out.

Anyway, to create an E-mail account. (for Hotmail)

1. Go to Messages → E-mail inbox → Create Account.

2. Fill in the particulars ie Account Name → Hotmail.

SMTP server →

SMTP port → 25

Secure connection → SSL

Incoming server type → POP3

POP server →

POP3 port → 995

APOP login → TICK

Secure connection → SSL

Download limit → 500

Retrieving option → Up to you

Keep on Server → Up to you

My address → your e-mail address (eg

Username → same as above


POP before SMTP → TICK

SMTP authentication → TICK

Same as POP3/IMAP4 → TICK


Then you can select a Browser Profile to download e-mails from your Hotmail. You can even use your Wi-fi profile to download them.

As for sending e-mails, I still can’t figure out..It might work on your side, hopefully.

May this be of your assistance! (^-^)/

Well not, Malaysians don’t speak Japanese. Depends on our race as Malaysia is a multi-racial country.

Malay is our national language. English being secondary. Chinese will learn Chinese, Indians will speak their mother tongue and so on.

There is no Korean and Japanese language in this phone.

There are 3 different models for Samsung Star.

1. No Wi-Fi
2. Has Wi-Fi
3. 3G and Wi-Fi (ability to make video calls and its external looks slightly different from the other 2 types)

The price should be no more than RM700. Cheapest you can find is probably RM500+.

Hi Ms Aya!
I wonder how you made the “my maxis” on the screen phone, can you help me to make it? My phone is Samsung star too.

151.  Ms Aya
April 30th, 2011 at 1:25 pm

Dear Small Turtle

‘My Maxis’ is my service provider. It usually automatically appears in the front screen of any phones. So your Samsung Star should display the name of your service provider just as mine does.

Dear JM

Go to:

Menu – Settings – Phone Settings – PC Connections and then tap on MASS STORAGE.

With that you will be able to connect to your internal and external memory card without any software needed. (^v^)/
