Amazing value for money with one of our favourite touch screen phones. The Tocco Lite is available for just £49.90 plus a £10 top up. See below for our Samsung Tocco Lite review.
Our first impressions of the Tocco Lite are good; the handset is small and compact and very good looking with the 3 inch screen dominating the front of the phone; accompanied by three buttons below; make call, menu and end call.
The screen itself presents a bold and colourful display which is crystal clear. On-screen picture quality is brilliant considering the Tocco Lite is the entry level handset in the Tocco series, although, as to be expected, it cannot rival the quality found on handsets boasting AMOLED displays.
The touch screen is sensitive and quick to respond whilst also being very accurate; it is easy to navigate to the exact point needed without accidentally opening the wrong program. The user-interface itself is intuitive and easy to get to grips with, offering a simple means to select and navigate your way around the various menus of the phone.
The built in 3.2 Megapixel camera, whilst not being a class leading or particularly high quality camera on paper, produces excellent images, which in conjunction with the display, look very impressive and the 256k colours supported mean almost true to life colouring too. The face detection and smile detection both take some getting used to, but when used properly, the camera will rarely produce a blurred or out-of-focus picture, meaning that even the most novice of photographers can produce high quality looking images that could easily be mistaken for a much larger megapixel camera.
The large screen makes looking at web pages a joy, with the majority of the page shown on-screen, however the lack of 3G or Wi-Fi spoils what would otherwise be an impressive web browsing experience, but considering the phone is designed as the entry-level handset in the family, and is therefore available even to those with a low budget, this is a worthwhile sacrifice to benefit from the functionality and simplistic everyday use that the phone offers.
Overall, even without the consideration of the price, the Tocco Lite is a very impressive and good-looking handset offering simplistic, intuitive use alongside a host of features found on typically much more expensive handsets including Bluetooth 2.1, email and web browsing. The fact that this is a relatively cheap handset just further enhances the amazing value-for-money that the Tocco Lite offers.
