Samsung Tocco Ultra S8300 review

 

Is the new Samsung Tocco Ultra S8300 up to the task?

Vibrant and colourful screen ; Sound quality is superb ; Camera takes amazing pictures ; Huge amount of photography options ; Sleek design, nice feel in the hand

Poor text input ; No 3.5mm jack ; Low-power browser ; Slightly sluggish at times ; Widgets are sometimes irritating to use ; Touchscreen can sometimes be unresponsive ; Low amount of storage on board and in box for a multimedia handset

Samsung has certainly ticked a lot of boxes with the Tocco Ultra Edition, but we feel it could have made a few improvements it could have been a star of 2009

Samsung S8300 Tocco Ultra Edition - Pocket-lint

 

For those who love Samsung and want the reassurance of a keypad and the thrill of a full touch device, then this is a hot little number.

Great build quality and looks, HSDPA, good media file support, GPS, camera surprisingly good, widgets

Sometimes slow to respond, browser experience seems a little bloated, menus not the most intuitive, lacks Wi-Fi

Overall the Tocco Ultra is a pleasure to use, with plenty to keep you entertained. It delivers a great blend of connected services, but doesn't quite reach the heady heights of some of the smartphones out there. Browsing the Internet isn't a top-notch...

Samsung Q1 SSD Ultra Mobile PC - Pocket-lint

 

Essentially an upgrade of the first Q1 but with a solid state hard drive, which makes it more usable but still not perfect

No moving parts, small, easy to carry

Poor software, not that powerful

The Samsung Q1 SSD goes some way to solving the problems of the UMPC format. True, such innovations come at a price and you’ll find the SSD is almost twice the price of the original version but is it worth the price hike? Well, it’s certainly a more...

Samsung Tocco Ultra Edition review

 

Amazing picture quality and an above-average camera in a sturdy, well-designed package - but it's let down by its poor battery life.

Samsung Ultra Edition II

 

Preview: Samsung is back with a new brood of fashion phones. And boy, have they been on a diet

Extremely pocketable. 3MP camera. Intuitive UI

No 3mm headphone jack. Camera takes a while to fire up
