Samsung Tocco SGH-F480 review


Our review of Samsung's latest touchscreen phone

Stylish compact design ; Responsive touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera ; HSDPA ; Drag and drop 'widgets' ; Good quality music player ; Decent earphones supplied

Touchscreen control not always slick ; No virtual Qwerty keyboard text input, Wi-Fi, camera flash limited ; No support for adding extra widgets ; No smartphone OS feature customisation

Good looking phone with a decent camera, though the touchscreen still has a way to go

Samsung Tocco F480


Samsung's best touchscreen phone to date, but is it all good?

The front screen measures 2.8 inches diagonally, putting it on a par with the screens of the more portable Windows Mobile devices. It delivers 320 x 240 pixels and 262 thousand colours. I found it clear and sharp to read and easy to use.

Samsung F480 Tocco


With sultry looks and a five-megapixel camera, the Samsung Tocco is less bulky than the range of camera phones that came immediately before it, proving that you can have a phone with style, snapping prowess and about a billion other features as well.

Lithe styling, customisable widgets and good camer

What happened to the Wi-Fi? And that touchscreen is annoying

The Samsung Tocco looks like a super model handset, unfortunately it's let down at the last minute by a severe case of the twitchy touchscreens.

Samsung SGH-F480 Tocco


Touched by greatness?

One of the best touchscreen phones we've witnessed, the Tocco's allure is considerable – but sadly it's brought down to earth by tame gaming capabilities

Samsung F480 Tocco


Samsung F480 Tocco is a high-specification touch screen phone that comes in a very slim package. The phone features a 5 megapixel camera, FM radio, music player, 3G web browser, and a huge memory. It also has Bluetooth (v2.0 with A2DP), and is already...

The Tocco laughs at the iPhone 3G's puny camera, then shies away with its tail between its legs when the iPhone laughs at its clumsy touch controls. Samsung F480 Tocco is tagged with mobile phone, HSDPA, 3G, Samsung and touch screen. Select a tag...
