We've already seen one of the two Star phones that Samsung recently released for the Indian market. The Star 3G phone was the higher priced phone of the two which sported 3G capabilities and had more features to offer. Today we look at the standard Star phone or the non-3G as it's popularly known. The Samsung Star phone is a touch phone for the masses sporting Samsung's TouchWIZ interface, which was showcased about a year ago on the TouchWIZ F480. The Star non-3G is the phone that is competing against the LG Cookie, but will it bring the Cookie down to its knees is something we have do find out. However, we know that the Star has forced LG to lower the price of the Cookie to around 9 K.

Note: It was surprising to find out that the Samsung website displays the Star phone with a stylus, but the handset we received did not have a stylus. Also, the headset wasn't provided to us, so audio related tests couldn't be performed.
