Samsung Star S5233S Unboxed

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: May 24, 2009

When I first receive this Samsung Star (Samsung S5233S) last week, I thought the LG Cookie has found a new competitor in the affordable full touch screen phone segment. Check out the pictures I took after the jump. Labeled under the Samsung S5230 line, the Samsung Star doesn't have much in connectivity -- no 3G, no WiFi, no GPS -- but has a full 3.0-inch (240x400 pixels) touch screen. It's gonna be very affordable and will target Samsung fans looking to try a touchscreen phone without putting a hole in the pocket. Haven't gotten the official price yet but expect…

Samsung Star S5233T gets an Analog TV

Relevance: 91%      Posted on: March 21, 2010

There were several iterations of the popular Samsung Star touchscreen phone that were introduced in the Philippines. The recent version, the Samsung S5233T, doesn't have 3G nor WiFi included but features an Analog TV tuner. It's a pretty interesting offering since it is mostly the China phones that are the ones promoting TV tuners in phones. It's possible Samsung was looking at how much traction it could get from that market. There's no WiFi here nor 3G connectivity but the Analog TV might catch the attention of a lot of people (especially those who are inclined to buy CHina phones…

Samsung Star S5233 vs. LG Cookie KP500

Relevance: 90%      Posted on: July 7, 2009

A lot of people are asking which of these two entry-level touchscreen phones is better -- the new Samsung S5233 Star or the older LG Cookie KP500 -- and I'd say they are just brothers from a different mother. Check out the comparative chart below and you'd be surprised how much specs these two phones share with each other. They're like clones -- down to the thickness. Of course, the LG Cookie got beaten in the charts by the Samsung Star with a minuscule difference in internal memory, VGA recording and battery rating. The LG Cookie is about 500 bucks…

Samsung Star S5233 Review

Relevance: 86%      Posted on: June 4, 2009

After trying out the Samsung Star (S5233) for over a week, I must say that this entry-level full touchscreen phone from Samsung comes as a contender in that category. The first time I powered up the phone and saw the UI, it reminded me of the Android OS. Samsung's TouchWiz UI is fast, responsive and pretty slick. The screen is a full 3 inches with a resolution of 240x400 pixels. The display is bright and crisp while the haptic feedback of the touchscreen can be adjusted for sensitivity (1 as subtle to 5 as shaky). This gives you the ability…

Samsung outs Galaxy S WiFi 4.2

Relevance: 63%      Posted on: February 29, 2012

Samsung is not done yet with the Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 mini-tablet or media player so they've added an even smaller one -- the Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 which, as you might have guessed it, measures 4.2 inches. It's no surprise that Samsung created another variant of their WiFi-only mini tablets and even though 4.2" isn't that much smaller than the 5.0" they released last year in the Philippines (update: all in all, Samsung has a Galaxy S WiFi 3.6, 4.0 and 5.2 on top of the Galaxy Player 4.0 and 5.0). Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 specs: 4.2" IPS…

Samsung ST5500/5000 is the new WiFi-enabled camera has been unveiled at the CES today (Samsung CL80 in the US). It's going to be the start of the point-and-shoot-and-upload category of cameras this year.

My guess is that this would go around for Php30k but don't quote me on that.

SIM Swap Scam exposes weakness of 2-factor authentication

Relevance: 61%      Posted on: July 9, 2015

The recent incident of the SIM Swap Scam which victimized Ian Caballero has exposed the long-known weakness of 2-factor authentication which uses an owner's mobile number to verify online banking transactions and site logins. The premise of a two-factor authentication theoretically strengthens the security of online accounts. This has been used by GMail for the longest time (introduced by Google in 2011) and then implemented later on by several other sites like Facebook and Paypal. Even online banking sites like BDO have introduced SMS verification as well (One-Time Password). Two-factor authentication requires two separate credentials -- the standard password that…

Samsung sells Galaxy Tab WiFi at Php16,990

Relevance: 61%      Posted on: April 1, 2011

We reported last month that Samsung Philippines will release a WiFi-only variant of their 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab. Turns out the tablet is already here in the Philippines and selling at a discounted price of just Php16,990. Two weeks ago, Samsung jumped the gun and dropped the suggested retail price of the 3G variant of the Galaxy Tab down to Php21,990. The sale happens in all Samsung retailers from April 1 to 17 only. Just asked for the WiFi-only variant if you want to get it at a much cheaper price (that's around Php3k cheaper than the 1st gen iPad).

Jellybean update for Samsung Tab 2 7.0 WiFi

Relevance: 60%      Posted on: November 23, 2012

Slowly but surely, Samsung has been seeding the Jelly bean update for the devices included on their list. The most recent addition to the Jelly bean club is the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 WiFi (GT-P3110) who joins the SGS3 and Galaxy Note 10.1. Some French users have already received and it is can be applied via Samsung Kies or OTA update. It’s a bit fascinating though why Samsung released the update for the P3110 and not for its data-enabled counterpart the P3100. There’s no word when the update will reach our shore and if the GT-P3100 will ever get the…
