Samsung Tocco Ultra review – why such a high-end phone comes with such remarkable free gifts
9 April 2010
Excerpt: This Samsung Tocco Ultra review is an unusual one, as the phone has been around for almost a year now, and I normally focus on the latest phones. What caught my attention was the superb range of deals on offer for the Tocco Ultra, and the fact that it’s one of the most successful touchscreen phones on the market, having been consistently in the top 10 best selling mobile phones for over 6 months now. So it must be doing something right.
Excerpt: Samsung’s on a roll with this, the Ultra Touch being the third mobile handset bearing an 8 megapixel camera lens. They’ve gone with an amalgamation of form factors with this one – it has a touchscreen like the Pixon and it’s also a slider like the INNOV8. But enough talk let’s get on with the review.
Excerpt: The Samsung Tocco is small, attractive and boasts a touchscreen. Has Samsung created something special or is it just another clone? What we like The Tocco is much smaller than we thought it would be and looks cute. It fits very well in a pocket and looks great because of its metal case and slim design. It’s probably one of the sturdiest touchscreen phones out there and can take more than a few drops.
Excerpt: Samsung's gift for creating classy slider phones mixes with touchscreen technology to produce a phone that - it's hoped - will be the best of both worlds. The Samsung S8300 Tocco Ultra Edition - or Ultra Touch in some countries - has a regular phone keypad that slides out from behind the brightest, most vivid screen imaginable. It's affordable and great-looking, but can be tough to use.
Excerpt: M any recently introduced mobile phones feature a touchscreen. We have already investigated the large differences between the various touchscreens before, however; it may be clear that positive developments keep on taking place, and that the current generation of mobile phones with touchscreens provides an ever improving and easier operation.
Excerpt: Available at: So if you can't wait for the Samsung Omnia HD to be launched, then the Samsung S8300 which will soon be launched in the UK in a few days might just satisfy your appetite for HD content on your mobile phone.

Summary: The Samsung UltraTouch is a great option for those who are intrigued by touch-screen technology but aren't ready to completely throw away the familiar physical keys just yet. The lack of Wi-Fi and a regular headphone jack are disappointments, but the combination of a responsive touch screen and a great design makes this an excellent mobile phone.
Pros: Design, superb AMOLED display, build quality, fast and responsive interface, 8-megapixel camera, HSDPA-capable
Cons: No 3.5mm headphone jack, limited accelerometer, no Wi-Fi
