Worst phone I have ever used. It is so badly designed that even the most basic functions like texting are a frustrating experience. DO NOT BUY! (read more)

This phone is absolutely awful. The back of the phone scratches every time you put it down. All of the keys freeze whilst I am texting so that makes me take the battery out of the phone. I charge this phone up every night and during the day it goes down to two, one and sometimes it runs out! The camera will not take images at all. My mum had this phone for 1 week and barely used it, my old phone-Nokia 5220 X-press music, broke, so my mum kindly give the phone to me (relatively new.) The... (read more)

It was great when i first got it but then it started getting slower and the love of the phone soon rubbed off . I actually swapped the battery for a different Samsung battery with a 800mha opposed to the 880mha in the phone and it seems to last alot longer! ( i almost had 3 days out of it!). the signal likes to make its mind up and sometimes messages will stay in your outbox waiting for you to resend it , When you resend it you will normally get a message back of your friend saying " you...

absolutely rubbish, had it 24 hours and now charging it for a 4th time, from a full charge browsing the net for 45 mins will have your battery dead (seriously), also camera's not as good as my previous phone (n86) quite good result but actually processes the image a second after you take the shot, very frustrating, goes off on its own even when its locked, rubbish reception compared to other phones using same sim, internet works when it feels like it, capacitive touch screen but very...

Samsung Tocco Ultra Black Addition on Orange Network
Ok so I got this phone on contract about 2 months ago, at first it everything seem quite neat, it's a very suave looking phone, and it comes with some interesting little apps, which become an annoyance later on.
So let's start with the positives:
It has a very good camera, 8.0 mega pixels. The only true redeemable feature on this phone, although the camera on the front of the phone can ONLY be used for video calls.
Its looks , this... (read more)

The Tocco S8300 - Had this phone for 3 days and its going back in the box never to come out again. I was so looking forward to getting to use it. Texting is an absolute nightmate. The pad is so slow and you need to hang on to the phone to use the keypad. To make a space for a word is bottom right of pad so you are afraid of dropping the phone stupid place to put it. To delete a mistake well i have no idea manual is useless and to be honest i have given up. to do a simple task is so long... (read more)

Had this a week and kinda getting used to it but its a pretty awful phone, impossible to use for anything while walking especially texting which is abysmal, touch screen is fairly accurate, but let down by a badly thought out interface. The phone does have some nice features but does none of them really well. Video looks fantastic but watch half hour of video and you'll need a full recharge. Battery life is truly appalling. I want another w810i! (read more)

Camera needs to be put on a lower mega pixel seting to take decent pictures and the screen is a little bit to small for accessing internet and other applications like Facebook. I do really like this phone though, it's easy to use. (read more)

This replaced a Sony K850 which I loved. This phone is ok for a while but you will soon miss having wi-fi, this doest have it. The touch screen is good but texting is annoying as its so sensitive and spells stupid words, it isn't cleaver enough to work out what you're trying to type. Entering apostrophies etc can be a pain in the butt.
The text pad is a nice option but very small really for normal man hands to use this efficiently.
The built in phone memory is TINY 8mb and always lets me... (read more)

First impressions with this phone was that it looks good. It has a large touch screen which is easy to use. It also slides up to reveal a keypad, only trouble is the keys are pretty small. I have small fingers and even I struggle! Also the keypad is low down to be able to hold the phone and text/dial with one hand without dropping the phone. The internet takes up so much of the battery life. If I browse one website for a minute or two it takes 2 bars off the battery. I probably charge it... (read more)

The Samsung S8300 is the worst phone I have ever owned. Samsung phone development seems to have gone backwards. I even emailed Samsung to ask if they did any product testing before they launched this model because the faults are so obvious within ten minutes of using it. They must have been so desperate to get it to market that they just didn't bother.
I've given up texting people now - it takes too long! The predictive text is just a joke. There are too many problems to list them all but... (read more)

This phone is so annoying and to be avoided, I recently sent mine to be repaired with a very long list of faults, I dropped it onto laminate flooring and about 7 Keys stopped working, I dropped my N95 ten times and no problem, I have since bought the U-Bop leather case with magnetic clip which I would reccomend but unfortunately I cannot do the same for the phone, Call quality is not great and my signal is not great, cannot get a signal in same places as I could with N95, Texting is abysmal...

The phone is very stylish and has a great camera but it is such hard work to use. writing txts is difficult as it is sometimes not possible to edit using the touch screen as when you touch the screen in the place you want to enter or delete the cursor will not go there. settings are not all listed in the operating manual, difficult to find, even my 15 year old cannot set it up for me at times and they change on power up. battery life is poor after a few months moderate use. the lock feature...

This phone's fine as long as you don't want to call, text or use the internet. The idea of the phone is great, but the basic features are so badly thought through that even after a year it annoys me every day. (read more)

Have to carry 2 880Amh batteries, make very few calls and a few texts, after 10-12 hours down on 2 blocks. The Samsung Tocco is a brill phone with loads of Gadgets but boys at Samsung, ya batteries are awful. E-Mailed them no answer. First and last time I have a Samsung. Why would Samsung want to produce such a class phone then supply it with a battery that don't last a day. I have free unlimited internet and by can I use it? no, not unless I sit here with it connected to the charger. Read... (read more)

I've had this Samsung Tocco Ultra S8300 for about 2 months and have found no real problems with it.
The one problem that i have found, which can be rather annoying, is that the memory card slot is next to the sim card slot meaning that to get to it you need to take out your battery! i found this unusual as most other phones have this on the side of the phone, making it easily accesable.
However there aren't any other problems that i have come across! another bonus is that the phone looks... (read more)
