Samsung Tocco Lite
Advantages: Excellent battery life, useful features
Disadvantages: No flash, sticky touchscreen, same as every other phone
I purchased the Samsung Tocco Lite from a Vodafone store for £80 because my other Samsung phone broke. The Samsung Tocco Lite is a nice little phone, with a large touchscreen and as far as I can seen before buying it - it had good reviews
However, I would say this phone is average, it just does not WOW me!
I prefer a phone to have touchscreen now, this phone has a large touchscreen with no additional normal keypad. The touchscreen is easy to use but I have found it can be a little bit sticky - especially during texting. I send ALOT of text messages and my last samsung could keep up with the speed I text at however this phone is a bit slow and I often have to back track and re-do the message which is exceptionally annoying. Fine if you are sending not many text messages.
The camera is not to bad, during the day...in the light. Not good if you enjoy taking pictures on nights out, in clubs, in pubs etc as the camera has no flash. I think this is poor for a phone in this day and age and although I was aware it never had a flash when I got it, I feel like I do not even make use of the camera.
This is one aspect of the phone which I think is really good. I charge my phone once a week - I am on it constantly, texting, phoning, using the internet etc. and I still only have to charge it once a week. Best battery life I have ever experienced in a phone. However one complaint would be the back of the phone which conceals the battery slides off very easily and I have sometimes found it at the bottom of my bag or sliding off mid phonecall which can be a bit annoying.
The phone has plenty of other features the same as every other phone - different modes for different situations (silent, outdoor, driving); you can put music on it and listen to it on the go; stopwatch; calenders; multiple alarm clock setting.
I would not recommend anyone to buy this phone, I do not think it is impressive, I think there are plenty of other phones with the same features but perhaps offering something extra (ie. flash on camera) for the same price. I have found generally that Samsungs are good phones and it is not that this phone is a bad phone it is just it has a few things which make it particularly annoying.
Summary: A pretty normal no frills average phone - fine.
