Samsung S5230 Star review: Quick view

10 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Samsung are going to great lengths to pile pressure on the LG Cookie. While the Samsung S5600 Preston aims to outdo it, the 5230 Star is set for a head-on collision course. This starlet's middle name is Tocco Lite and that's plenty to live up to. The name itself is no shortcut to stardom but the Tocco pedigree certainly brings with it certain expectations of quality. So will this little Star still be going strong a year from launch?

Samsung Tocco Lite Review: In Depth

15 September 2010
  • Excerpt: The Samsung Tocco Lite is an inexpensive touchscreen phone that keeps things simple -- but is it too simple? What we like Considering it’s a budget touchscreen phone the Tocco Lite’s display is bright and crisp and very responsive – texting and dialling is easy. The Lite uses a series of customisable widgets that display services such as a clock, and links to social networking sites. We found the interface basic but straightforward.

Samsung Tocco Lite
