A friend is using Star II & the experience has been decent :confused: . Any reason to avoid Samsung.

----------

And Nokia - Well I have had 2 different friends buy the new Nokia phones in that range, with big flaws. One of them was a Nokia Fanboy - now he swears he wont buy a Nokia in his lifetime

The Duos seems to be a newer version (Dual Sim), he has the non-Dual sim version. Not sure about the Dual Sim versionAnd for the record, the Nokia fanboy's dejection was the Nokia X2

The Samsung Star II is pretty attractive for the price. I'll try check it out in a B&M store. Thanks mhsabir. I wonder what was your friend's gripe with Nokia X2 that has made him go against Nokia in the future.Among Nokia, I like C2-03 (thanks to operamaniac). I also read some nice reviews about X2-01 (thanks popcorn) but the warning from 'mhsabir' has raised a red flag.Anyways I will try to check out all 3 models in a store. Do post here if you've heard of any major issues with Star II or C2-03. Thanks.

The screen hangs with grey color background & no text. He has tried to get it fixed, but is on the verge of throwing it in the dustbin & get a local branded cellphone like Micromax. Another had one of the newer XpressMusic versions, but feels quality of the product has gone bad & nothing like the older ones, the sound quality of phones & music is bad he says.
