“Great Phone,Worth the money!”

Written on: 11/08/2011 by MrMysteryReviewer (3 reviews written)

I got the Samsung Toco Lite a few months ago as a replacement for my old phone which I had lost. Before hand I never usually used my phone but since I have had this I use my mobile much more now. It is stylish and got a great slim design. The reception quality is really good when having lengthy phone calls. As for battery it could easily last a good few days before it started running out. One thing though that I don't like about this mobile is the fact that it's touch screen can easily unlock… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/01/2011 by MichelleB (1 review written)

There are some things I really like about this phone but mostly it has been a nightmare. its touch screen either picks everything your trying to scroll across or nothing at all. I have yet to find the windows 7 driver as the disc with it is upto XP. The camera is ok, but not that impressed. I only gave a low score for value for money as whatever you pay you'd expect it to work and have upto date software. Other than that could be a really nice phone. Have yet to work out (if you can) how to… Read Full Review

“Me and my work colleagues started having an argument...”

Written on: 14/01/2011 by Ryles23 (11 reviews written)

Me and my work colleagues started having an argument over the Tocco Lite today, provoking me to write this review... they described it as a "cheap copycat iPhone" which in all fairness is partly true in the cosmetic nature of it, but when I was looking for a new phone I was looking for something with a touch screen that was cheap - and that's exactly what I paid for. £90 at the time and now somewhere around the £45 mark (last time I checked) I think it's a great deal for money.

The touchscreen… Read Full Review

“This Phone has a good appearance. ”

Written on: 05/09/2010

This Phone has a good appearance.
It damages easily but overall it is a great phone.
I bought the phone thinking i would be able to upload pictures to facebook directly from my phone, some of my friends had this phone and some of theirs worked some didnt. Mine didnt.
The camera is good.
The ways you can text are great either as a keyboard style (to the side) or a normal phone way (upright)… Read Full Review

The samsung tocco lite is a great phone all round,
it has a good camera and is great value for money i brought this phone when it came out and was amazed at the features was very modern.
The battery life was good from my point of view i use my phone alot so i charge them every other night it never ran out on me and it lasted just right amount of time.
Overall would reccomend this phone.
the only little down fall is if you press too many things at once it may freeze so dont rush it while it… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/07/2010

Battery life is so bad, it is unbelieveable. Has been back (via Carphone Warehouse) for repair .. but only difference was the software was updated. Battery life is still terrible. Nice looking phone, with good features ... but no use if it turns itself off after 24 hours because the battery has died .. even when no calls/texts have been made or received! Have actually stopped taking it out with me, as can;t trust it will work. Would definitely not recommend it… Read Full Review

“Hello ”

Written on: 26/04/2010 by polabearcrazy (2 reviews written)

Hello
I simply love this phone to bits.
I have an excellent monthly plan of just £5.00 a month. ( 18 month contract) i thought i would hate a touch screen but this really is the bees knees. i am 37 and not really into gadgets but this is really easy to use the large screen is wonderfully clear. I have purchased more memory for this phone and it trebles up as my music player (MP3) and with a 3.2 Mega Pixel camera it takes some lovely photos. Incredibly easy access to access the internet ( i… Read Full Review

I found this review very helpful because...I am due an upgrade soon and want to have a touch phone this time but not sure if being a pensioner. I could handle one.I think this is the way forward from a keypad type phone

Written on: 04/04/2010 by ASM (4 reviews written)

I bought one each for my son and daughter for Xmas (both under 14). They love them. Touch screen technology with large on screen keyboard when used horizontally and they tell me that "it's a cool phone to have at school".

You need to expand the onboard memory to use as an iPod - but when you do it holds more than you could reasonably need.

I found the touch screen irritating as you have to learn the knack of tapping it in the right way, unlike the iphone which is far better. Also Music… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/04/2010 by frogbrains (4 reviews written)

The Samsung S5230 is a good phone. The design of the casing is nice, with a nicely textured back-plate, and an attractive face, it does not look like a cheap phone. The styling is far better than that of the LG Cookie, which my sister has. The Cookie, to be honest, looks really cheap and nasty. The UI is good enough, but it definitely isn't going to win an awards for attrativeness. Menu navigation is so-so; the touch screen is occasionally iffy, being capacitative, and may think you are… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/02/2010 by TwinCam (33 reviews written)

The Samsung Tocco lite [GT-S5230], is an amazing budget touch screen phone and for the price, it can't be overlooked.

Screen quality is very good [3.0" wqvga]. Menu animations are good and clear. Touch screen interface works well, although some people with larger fingers may struggle [a stylus is not included].

Battery life is very good, much better than my old lg prada phone. Talk time [mfr] 600min, stanby 700min.

Features on this phone work very well, and basically its a Tocco without some… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/10/2009 by applejamuk (3 reviews written)

After reading reviews and doing window shopping for a week found that Samsung Tocco Lite is the real deal. It looks great (does not look cheap for sure), feels great, handles great. Every other mobile in this group feels/looks slightly cheaper. No outing, no crushes, works flawlessly. Field-tested it for two days in a row(heavy use internet, email, google maps, games, calls testing, camera, video camera)- all great and not a single glitch. Battery dropped only two bars after ALL "abuse" I done… Read Full Review
