Samsung Tocco Quick Tap Review: In Depth
12 September 2012
Conclusion: If you’re looking to have an extra phone that’ll pay for your coffee when you forget your wallet, the Tocco Quick Tap can do that. Expect it to do more than calls, text messaging, and simple emails, and you’ll be disappointed. One benefit to the cheaper handset is that it should prove to be a very accessible entry into the world of the mobile wallet, but with limited stores and services able to accept contactless payments like Quick Tap, as it currently stands, this is a...
Conclusion: 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 density is a minor quibble on such a phone. The incapable browser is is a bigger gripe, though. More importantly, the phone sports an above average call quality, and that's all that could be asked from its price point.
Pros: Cheap and compact, Good call quality, Wi-Fi connectivity
Cons: Laggy interface, Browser struggles to render heavier pages, Low pixel density, No ambient light and accelerator sensors
Summary: Will Samsung's budget handset see the same success as the original Tocco Lite?
Pros: Great battery life, Good for making calls, Loads of messaging options, Decent music player, Expandable storage, The battery in this thing is great, running on and on, well beyond when many other phones (smartphones in particular) would sputter out. Samsung's also remembered that a phone first and foremost is for making calls and as such it handles that really well. The amount of messaging options is impressive too; from various instant messengers to Samsung's own Chat...
Cons: Poor touch screen, Cramped keyboard, No 3G, Only 20MB of internal storage, Slow browser, The lack of 3G really hurts the Samsung Tocco Lite 2. Feature phones often don't have 3G, but at this price it's competing with low-end smartphones as much as other feature phones. The biggest problem though is that touch screen. Awkward and imprecise, it almost made us long for buttons, and, combined with the cramped keyboard it makes text entry a far from pleasant experience.
Summary: 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.
Pros: Good build quality, responsive touchscreen, really long battery life
Cons: Connectivity is slow because there’s no 3G or Wi-Fi ; no 3.5mm audio jack
Summary: Dass man in dieser Preisklasse nichts Exklusives erwarten kann, ist klar. Zwar ist das Star 3 ein reiner Plastikbomber, doch bei der Verarbeitungsqualität ließen die Macher wenig anbrennen. Einziger Schwachpunkt: Das Display reagiert sensibel auf Druck auf die Plastikscheibe in Form von schwarzen Stellen. Das Display selbst bietet nur eine Auflösung von 240 x 320 Pixel, was aber angesichts der geringen Größe preislich angemessen ist.
Pros: Sehr günstig, Gute Rufbereitschaft
Cons: Magere Multimedia-Qualitäten, Kein UMTS, Kleines Display
Summary: Allzu viel hat sich beim Samsung Star 3 im Vergleich zum Vorgänger nicht verändert. Im Gegenteil: Die Kamera löst minimal schwächer auf, der Touchscreen hat dieselbe Größe. Somit ist fraglich, was das Samsung Star 3 besser machen soll, als der Vorgänger. Es wirkt in Zeiten moderner Android-Geräte, wie der Samsung Galaxy Reihe , die zum Teil nur wenig teurer sind, absolut veraltet.
