The Samsung Tocco Lite is fine if you just want a touchscreen and the very basics. The touchscreen is very responsive and bright which is great but don’t buy this phone if you want mobile Internet access or if you want to download apps..

Samsung Tocco Lite review -

 

A sleek looking touch-screen device available for credit crunch busting price

The resistive touch-screen can prove a bit hit and miss; accidental commands were common place

Samsung S5230 Tocco Lite Review

 

The Samsung S5230 Tocco Lite is a competitively priced full touch-screen phone that has taken a goal squarely at LG´s extremely popular Cookie phone. If you were not aware, the LG Cookie is the best selling phone in the first half of 2009. The secret...

Despite going light on the big-ticket features, the Samsung Tocco Lite offers a decent way to get into touch control on a limited budget. It has its limitations, with its data connectivity hampered by a lack of high speed 3G and Wi-Fi, and there are...

Samsung S5230 Tocco Lite

 

The Samsung S5230 Tocco Lite has made an interesting choice with regards it's touch screen. Where as most of the latest touch screen mobiles are capacitive styles, which means they are designed to be used with the fingers for touch, Samsung have opted...

There is an integrated, fully featured music player where you can list tracks by artist, by song or by album. The music player also creates automatic play-lists based on your most recently added songs and your most listened to tracks.

Samsung Tocco Lite Review

 

The Samsung Tocco Lite has found an enthusiastic audience of social networkers who appreciate its good looks and price tag, but it fails to hit any great heights in terms of features.

This is a stylish touch-screen phone with great social networking for a good price.

There could be improvements to the resistive touch-screen – there are lots of accidental key presses.

It’s easy to see why the Samsung Tocco Lite has proved to be so popular: it’s sleek, the screen is bright and vibrant, and social networking is made easy. It’s got flaws, certainly, and doesn’t set the mobile world alight, but it’s a good mid-tier...

Samsung Tocco Lite review

 

Gadget fans will remember 2009 as the year touchscreen blowers went from the play things of first adopters and nouveau posers to bargain techie essentials. The Samsung Tocco Lite is the latest cheap mobile treat to land on our doorstep. So how does it...

Surprisingly good touchscreen, slim frame

Lacks killer features to make it stand out from the crowd

A decent enough basic phone which lacks great extras

Samsung Tocco Lite review

 

We review the Samsung Tocco Lite, the third Tocco in Samsung's lineup

Small for the hand and pocket ; Good screen ; Widgets allow extreme customisation

No 3G ; Proprietary headset connector ; Average camera

The Tocco Lite is small and neat, with a good touchscreen, but it is hampered by the lack of 3G.
