Samsung Tocco Icon - Pocket-lint

 

A very affordable entry-level touchscreen phone that's easy to use, but there is no 3G and web browsing capability is basic

Compact, slick design, good call quality, affordable, easy to use, large screen

Poor screen resolution, tiny memory, basic apps, small onscreen keys

Overall, the Samsung Tocco Icon isn't a massive step up from the Tocco Lite, but the inclusion of a capacitive touchscreen is certainly a compelling reason to buy if you liked the original phone. The compact chassis, slick design and ease of use also...

Samsung Tocco Icon

 

Style icon or fashion disaster? We put this Wi-Fi-enabled feature phone through its paces.

Capacitive touch layer, Strong design

Unreliable touchscreen performance, Terrible app/games support, Limited widget library

Samsung Tocco Icon Review: In Depth

 

The Tocco Icon is a tiny phone aimed at social networkers. With a chrome trim and back back (which is rather fingerprint prone) it's quite attractive. Hardly a surprise at this price are the cheap-feeling…

Samsung Tocco Icon review

 

High-end smartphones are all the rage right now, but sometimesall you really want is a good quality phone that focuses on thebusiness of communicating. At least, that's the purpose ofSamsung's Tocco Icon, a good looking, compact slice of tech...

Svelte good looks, okay camera

Limited functionality compared to an entry level smartphone

The Samsung Tocco Icon has some good things going for it,but at a price that's getting close to a budget smart phone, you'llreally need to love the way it looks to part with your cash forit.

Samsung Star II : Samsung GT-S5260 Star II

 

The first Samsung mobile handset I reviewed was a clamshell unit that could automatically open and close itself at the press of a button. It also came with two battery packs. Neither of these features can be found with this next Samsung handset.

You should be able to pick up this smartphone for around £80 as a pay as you go device. It is more suited to the social network brigade but could still appeal to others

Samsung Tocco Icon budget mobile

 

Review While smartphones grab the headlines and an ever-increasing slice of the market, cheap 'n' cheerful feature phones that focus on the basic job of communicating have had to raise their game. Indeed, the Tocco Icon builds on Samsung's Tocco Lite,...

The Tocco Icon is a perfectly adequate feature phone that looks a bit pricier than it is and includes a decent media player and camera. Web browsing is painless so long as you can get Wi-Fi access, given the lack of 3G, it’s painfully slow without....

Samsung Tocco Icon review

 

We review the Tocco Icon S5260, a budget touchscreen mobile from Samsung that isn't quite sure what it is

Cheap touchscreen handset, Long battery life, Lightweight

No 3G connectivity, Not as feature-rich as Android, Cheap feel

The Samsung Tocco Icon tries so hard to wow us with its budget touchscreen ways but there are better alternatives out there

Samsung Star II S5260

 

A successor to such a popular phone was imminent and Samsung released Star II in March 2011 – almost two years after the original phone release. If you compare the specifications of the phones it may seem as if they were twin brothers: they have almost...
