Sporting a 2.8" capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 240x320, Samsung star comes with a accelerometer which aids in rotating the display orientation automatically and a 3.2 mega-pixel camera with LED flash, so you can capture pictures on the go.

The Samsung Star 3G fares average in the looks department. You won't be blown away by its stylishness, but yes if you are looking for a slim fit phone, at just 12.9mm Samsung Star get a thumbs up for us. The device is light weight and fits in perfectly within the palms of your hands.

The device comes equipped with a 2.8 inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 240x320 pixels. This is one of the obvious drawbacks of the device, the low resolution on the big screen gives a pixelated view of the pictures and videos tend to be grainy.

A simple touch input and a common keypad with three keys at the bottom for - call , joystick and disconnect, come in handy to navigate across the screen, Samsung Star has a very user friendly interface. The volume and zoom keys for the camera are located on the right while the volume rocker keys sits pretty on the left. It also features a screen lock button which is located on the top. The phone is available in a black color and bears a metal finish on video calling camera located on the front and the earpiece.
