SAMSUNG S5230 REVIEW
on March 28, 2010
I have had many phones...maybe 10 per year. I have always just wanted a really cute phone that is girly...this phone was released my Samsung for $250....for some reason they re-launched the phone under Anycall, which is Samsung is another country...it comes with a case and different packaging but is $500.
I have had really good luck with the phone. A few quirks need to be worked out and you need to call your cell provider to get it set up for messaging, web. I don't use the internet on my phone..I use the camera, which is good...text and call..both are great...It also has a feature where you hold down the down volume button and your phone will ring..you set up when..10 sec, 1 min...and you can even add voice...it's called fake call...pretty cool when someone is talking my ear off and I am thinking of how to get out of the conversation....The music player is awesome. I loaded all my tunes on a memory card and it has great sound. Samsung has a different plug in..but you can get an adapter on Amazon for a few bucks so you can use MP3 speakers or headphones. I put it on speaker phone when I take a shower and it is loud and clear. I used the music player one day for 6 hours straight and used one bar of battery life. I haven't had the battery die on me quickly..It has lots of Hello Kitty wallpapers and it is adorable in person..Purchased an invisible protection for it...like a screen protector but covers the front back and sides...or you will want one or a clear snap on cover. You want to be able to see the Hello Kitty design on the back. If you buy it in plain colors it is much less money....I got mine at wireless experts with no problems and paid $236 plus shipping. Please note..I believe a phone is a phone..I have had the T Mobile Tap(lags) Behold(crap camera)Blackberry Bold and Pearl(don't like the keys) T Mobile slider wifi in white mint..can't remember the name of it..too bulky..Nokia 7510 Super Nova, too heavy and others.....but I want to be able to listen to music, text and talk and this phone does all of that and it's cute. If you have large fingers you may have a problem because it is small and light..internet features I really cannot comment on since i don't use the internet..
So overall I would give this a 9.5/10
