We had no problems at all with call quality. Chatting was loud and clear, with no unexpected drop-outs or other issues in our extensive testing over multiple locations. The virtual keyboard is a doddle to use, and the phonebook works effectively once you get acclimatised to the touch element.

Undemanding users – tap this way...

With no power-hungry Wi-Fi or GPS, battery life was impressive for a touchscreen phone. With moderate music playing we managed around three days between charges. Samsung estimates optimum figures of 700 hours' standby or ten hours of talktime.

Verdict

The lack of 3G, Wi-Fi and other high-end features dull the performance of the Samsung Tocco Lite and certainly limit its appeal, especially compared to the similarly priced touchscreens such as Nokia's 5530 XpressMusic. Yet, operationally, the Tocco Lite's handling is consistent with other Samsung TouchWiz devices and offers a decent touchscreen experience. ®
