Samsung S5260 Star II review: In the making

 

You must remember this one – maybe not by face but certainly by name. The Samsung S5260 Star II has some big shoes to fill: over 10 million units sold propelled the predecessor to Stardom. The original Samsung Star was one of the most popular handsets...

Samsung Star II Review

 

In the tradition of the first Samsung Star, which was great success with its 30 million units sold, the Samsung Star II is a cute and affordable touchscreen feature phone, with a few enhancements over its predecessor where it counts...

Samsung Star 2 Reviewed

 

We review the Samsung Star 2, a sequel to Samsung's blockbuster, the Samsung Star. Can the new star shine as brightly as the original?

Today we review a long awaited phone, the Samsung Star 2, sequel to the original Samsung Star. With over 30 million units sold and probably one of the finest low-end feature phones ever made, the Star 2 has a prestigious reputation to live up to.

Samsung Star II

 

Almost two years on from the original Star, Samsung have announced its successor - the Samsung Star II. Both phones are pretty similar on paper, but Samsung have made some useful improvements to keep the Star II fresh.

Samsung Tocco Icon - Pocket-lint

 

The Samsung Tocco Icon GT-S5260 is an updated version of the brand's popular Tocco Lite and looks fairly similar, although it does throw a few extras into

Compact, slick design, good call quality, affordable, easy to use, large screen

Poor screen resolution, tiny memory, basic apps, small onscreen keys

Overall, the Samsung Tocco Icon isn't a massive step up from the Tocco Lite, but the inclusion of a capacitive touchscreen is certainly a compelling reason to buy if you liked the original phone. The compact chassis, slick design and ease of use also...

Samsung Tocco Icon

 

Style icon or fashion disaster? We put this Wi-Fi-enabled feature phone through its paces.

Capacitive touch layer, Strong design

Unreliable touchscreen performance, Terrible app/games support, Limited widget library

Samsung Tocco Icon Review: In Depth

 

The Tocco Icon is a tiny phone aimed at social networkers. With a chrome trim and back back (which is rather fingerprint prone) it's quite attractive. Hardly a surprise at this price are the cheap-feeling…

Samsung Tocco Icon review

 

High-end smartphones are all the rage right now, but sometimesall you really want is a good quality phone that focuses on thebusiness of communicating. At least, that's the purpose ofSamsung's Tocco Icon, a good looking, compact slice of tech...

Svelte good looks, okay camera

Limited functionality compared to an entry level smartphone

The Samsung Tocco Icon has some good things going for it,but at a price that's getting close to a budget smart phone, you'llreally need to love the way it looks to part with your cash forit.

Samsung Star II : Samsung GT-S5260 Star II

 

The first Samsung mobile handset I reviewed was a clamshell unit that could automatically open and close itself at the press of a button. It also came with two battery packs. Neither of these features can be found with this next Samsung handset.

You should be able to pick up this smartphone for around £80 as a pay as you go device. It is more suited to the social network brigade but could still appeal to others

Samsung Tocco Icon budget mobile

 

Review While smartphones grab the headlines and an ever-increasing slice of the market, cheap 'n' cheerful feature phones that focus on the basic job of communicating have had to raise their game. Indeed, the Tocco Icon builds on Samsung's Tocco Lite,...

The Tocco Icon is a perfectly adequate feature phone that looks a bit pricier than it is and includes a decent media player and camera. Web browsing is painless so long as you can get Wi-Fi access, given the lack of 3G, it’s painfully slow without....
