An in-depth review of the Samsung Tocco

Duration: 14:20

Super

ProSuperb Camera, decent MP3 player and FM Radio

ConsLow Internal Memory, No GPS

I'll be honest with you; the Samsung Tocco (F480) was not my first choice mobile; I really wanted an iPhone. Sadly however, you can only acquire one of the Apple-esq wonders if you sell your soul and empty your wallet to O2. Don't get me wrong, I love O2; they have been my one and only network...

I have wanted this phone for MONTHS, and so when I finally got it last week I was made up!!!!! I'm just going to jump right in here rather than nattering on!!! LOOK: The phone is a rectangle shaped slide phone, when closed it's about 10cm tall and 5cm wide, and 1cm deep. It's a very dark grey...

ConsNot brilliant as a phone

My late husband was gadget daft. He liked to be the first person with the latest new technology and didn't seem to care that he paid through the nose for the privilege. His fascination for gadgets was never more keen than when it came to phones. He was the first person I knew who had a mobile...

Cons... when it works

*NEGA REVIEW!* This phone is so obviously trying to leech off the success that is the iPhone with its touch sensitivity. When I read that Samsung was releasing a touch screen phone called the Tocco I literally spat out a mouthful of putrefied goat's milk. Tocco is Italian for touch, so how many...

Orange Network About seven years ago I joined up to the Orange network and I didn't like it very much. I was getting huge bills and the staff were very, very rude when I tried enquiring about it. So when I saw the best contract deal was with Orange I was quite worried about it. When I spoke to...

This is by far the best phone I have ever had. I previously had a Sony Ericsson phone which I was very disappointed with so I quickly changed it for the Samsung Tocco as testing have previously owned Samsung phones & have been extremely pleased with them as i am with this. The first thing that...

I am with T- Mobile and my 18 month plan was finishing up (this year March) so I had to find a new phone. To replace my old Nokia, which I have to say I had, had enough of. So searching through phones that had recently came out I found the Samung Tocco. This phone was everything i needed in a...

ProWonderful Phone

ConsNone yet.

The Samsung F480 (Tocco) is a stylish touch screen phone, it is rated as the second best phone on the Samsung website (Omnia was first). In my opinion this one should have been first as I personally prefer it to the Omnia. It weighs 106g and it's dimensions (HxWxD) are 98.4 x 55 x 11.6mm...

ConsBit Expensive if Bought Outright

I first got my Samsung Tocco [it's more commonly known as a Tocco than the SGH-F480] to a feeling of relief. My Dad had ordered it as part of our switch-over from the dastardly BT to the incredibly accommodating Virgin. However, after several bad experiences with ordering phones over the internet...

When it came time to renew my contract, i had already decided i wanted a phone which had the touch screen technology, but i was unsure which one to get, as the ones i had previously looked at or tried seemed to have a delay in touch the screen and the required action being performed. However when...

ProInnovative, fun to use

Constakes getting used to

I got the Samsung F480 recently as a free upgrade from my contract provider, I don't think I would have paid for this phone as I'm fairly clumsy and wouldn't have been convinced the large screen would have lasted more than a month. The phone itself however isn't as fragile as it looks and I...

ProPrice and good quality camera

ConsNo qwerty keyboard

On first glance of the Samsung Tocco F480 I am very impressed with it and like the look and feel. I also like how even though it is a touchscreen phone they have kept it to a fairly small size so it is easy to hold and carry around. The battery life on this phone is amazing and it seems to last...

ConsNone as of yet!

At first a little apprehensive, after always having Samsung products i wondered if it would live up to it's rivals! It does! The F480 (Or Tocco as commonly known) is an excellent example in it's class. The camera at first glance is a little dissapointing but with a the correct settings and when...
