The Samsung Tocco Lite is lighter than the original Tocco and it has a larger screen, now 3 inches with a higher resolution, plus gesture lock and handwriting recognition. The interactive TouchWiz interface lets you customise your home screen by dragging and dropping the widgets you use most. The screen also has an accelerometer, turn the phone sideways and the display automatically switches to widescreen landscape mode, great for viewing movies. With a microSD card slot and an excellent video and audio player, it will keep you entertained on long journeys.
The Tocco Lite has stereo Bluetooth, allowing music and sound to be streamed wirelessly with a compatible headset. The web browser is also very good. Although with no 3G or W-Fi, it relies on GRPS, so large web pages and downloads are slower than a 3G phone. It’s still fine for moderate internet use and there’s no significant speed difference when using email, Twitter or Facebook.
The 3.2 megapixel camera has smile detection, which means it will focus and then wait until your subject smiles before taking a picture. The Samsung Tocco Lite is a fun phone and excellent value for money. It has a nice interface and good multimedia capabilities.
