Samsung Tocco Lite 2 review


Will Samsung's budget handset see the same success as the original Tocco Lite?

Great battery life ; Good for making calls ; Loads of messaging options ; Decent music player ; Expandable storage

Poor touch screen ; Cramped keyboard ; No 3G ; Only 20MB of internal storage ; Slow browser

The original Samsung Tocco Lite was the little phone that could. It took the world by storm despite boasting modest specs and lacking features that have come to be taken for granted – such as Wi-Fi.

Samsung Tocco Lite 2


If you're on a budget and need a handset for texting and calls, it's worth looking at the Samsung Tocco Lite 2. It's nice looking, and the screen is responsive. However, the lack of 3G and Wi-Fi is an issue for internet fans.

Good build quality, responsive touchscreen, really long battery life

Connectivity is slow because there’s no 3G or Wi-Fi ; no 3.5mm audio jack

Samsung Star 3 Review


The Samsung Star 3 is representing a breed that will become increasingly rare in the future – featurephones – as those are being gradually pushed away by the smartphone crowd, even in the entry level segment. Let's explore if a phone like the Star 3 is...

Cheap and compact ; Good call quality ; Wi-Fi connectivity

Laggy interface ; Browser struggles to render heavier pages ; Low pixel density ; No ambient light and accelerator sensors

The Samsung Star 3 is aiming for the sub-$100 mark without any subsidies, so there isn't much else we can desire from its hardware except what is already in there. We wish it had at least the same screen as the Star 2, but the slightly lower pixel...

Good Enough for the Price Tag


I often change phone like every 4 - 6 months. And so far I love this phone a lot that I wouldn't want any other model YET *lol* But I might have to if I still can't find the correct MMS setting.

It has very long power life, great style & light weight. I only need to charge it about 2 times a weeks even though I use it to access the net like all the time when traveling to work. The virtual keypad make texting much easier. The wap browser is...

Lack of settings support in the US, even if you try to google it. Had to set the wap setting manually. However, been owning this phone for 4 months now and I still can't find the correct MMS setting for tmobile for the phone model
