 Disappointing

| | See all ChasingAmy99's reviews (1)

I felt the need to throw my 2cents into the review arena:

First off - it is not for texters as there's no emoticons for your text messages ... as in no yellow smileys (let alone animated ones) - meaning you're back to colons and parantheses.

Touch screen use is funky ... but then you can get annoyed when you're texting using keys on the right handside - and finding you've gone into the language setting and set it to french.

Furthermore, scrolling through your phonebook will see you fly past your contact - or bring up an adjacent contact's details instead of the one you were after (time to hit that 'back' button!)

Only 14 characters per contact?! You'll be having some truncated entries in your phone book.

Customising the widget bar on your front screen IS good ... but not for long - when you realise you cannot add your own widgets.

Also - no games for those free 5 minutes or so (sorry but the picture puzzle is lame!)

Internet access is good though.

I've only had this a few days - looks like I'll be returning for a nokia 5800

 Brilliant Piece Of Kit

Recently got this phone, and I can't fault it in anyway.
Still finding out new features on it daily, there's just so much!
As you can see, It's 100% touch screen, with a shortcut button and an answer and hang-up button. So far, I'e had no problems with the touch screen at all.
Camera - 5 Megapixels and It's brillaint at taking photos, as you can adjust all sorts of settings on it.
Music player is crystal clear too.
It also comes with a protective cover, which clips into the back battery bit, and flaps over the front screen.
Looking for a new phone?
I advise this one.

 Very nice phone!

This is a really swish looking phone. I bought it wanting something that was reminiscent of an iPhone, but a lot cheaper and would work on my network (vodafone), and the Tocco hasn't disappointed.

Having no keypad built in is, in my opinion, an advantage (and in fact made me want this one over the new Tocco Ultimate), as it makes the phone look much sleeker, simple, and classy.

My only gripe so far (similar to other reviews) is the texting. In the past I have never used predictive text...for some reason I just got used to texting quickly manually. However with the Tocco, you really do need to use predictive text otherwise texting can take a very long time! Occasionally you end up tapping the wrong button (especially the "change language" button which is very close to the number 3!) but I'm sure this will get easier with time.

The camera is decent enough...I'm not too bothered about a camera on a phone though as I use a normal digital camera. It is fine for a phone camera, and does the job.

The browser is great for viewing Facebook, which for me is very important!

Only comes with one game "Photo Puzzle" which isn't great. You can download more easily off Samsung Mobile, which goes straight to your bill/balance but they do cost about £4.50 each.

The buttons/menus are all very large text and clear, which makes the touch screen easy.

Overall I would definitely recommend this phone for anyone looking for a neat little touch screen. For fans of Samsungs, in my opinion it is the next progression...and a great introduction to Samsungs for anyone who has never had one.
Best point: It looks brilliant, iPhone style
Worst point: Texting (but don't let that put you off, it's really not that bad!)

 The worst to finally the best phone Ive ever had.

This Phone for the first 8 weeks came close to being thrown up the wall numerous times with it constant freezing and I constantly told myself never to stray from Nokia again, even though my last phone was a great Samsung d900. I first though it must be bad firmware and changed it from Dec 08 to Feb 09, there was no difference at all - still constant daily freezes.Something was slowing this phone down, I took the secondery back light off , then the vibration, nothing. I finally found that there memory hungry Samsung wallpaper was the proplem. I changed it with a photo of my car taken with the phones camera. I cant believe the difference, its been 5 weeks now and not a freeze in sight. This phone would have got 5 stars if it had been like this at the start.
Easy to use, like to text, like the birthday reminder, and the full screen calculator.
This phone will now be with me for a long time and the Nokia 6700 will have to wait!!

 Excellent easy to use phone !

Excellent phone read lots of reviews before I went and got the Tocco some reviews not very encouraging but decided to go ahead and really pleased I did have had no problems which is rare ! Found the phone so easy to use battery life good loving the cover which protects the screen from those awful scratches that you can get but not with the cover ! Not good if you use facebook alot but general internet stuff ok camera good overall very very pleased !
