Samsung UltraTouch S8300 review

 

Samsung has had quite a sideline in handsets sportin' AMOLED displays as of late, and you know what? We're fans -- that's why we were more than happy to get our hands on the UltraTouch S8300 for some in-depth use and abuse. At first glance it seems to...

AMOLED Display ; Support for DivX / XviD ; Anti-smudge screen actually works

Cluttered display ; TouchWiz ; No way to view videos in portrait or full screen

Samsung UltraTouch (S8300)

 

Its camera is great and the screen looks amazing, but the UltraTouch is not a knockout. It's a weird mix of business looks, average apps and dodgy performance, and we just can't tell who exactly Samsung is trying to sell it to.

Excellent 8-megapixel camera, Slim slider form factor, AMOLED display looks amazing

Laggy interface, Stiff, business look, No 3.5mm headphone socket on the phone, Keypad is cramped and hard to use, Not a smartphone

Samsung Tocco S8300 Ultra Edition review

 

The Samsung Tocco is a sleek slider/touchscreen combo feature phone that packs a ton of functionality into a small form factor. It's stylish and nice to use, and the red color will draw attention from those around you (at least it did for me). The...

Review: Video review of Samsung's S8300 Ultra TOUCH

 

A short while back we received a shiny new Samsung S8300 in the mail. The S8300, known as the Ultra Touch and Tocco Ultra Edition, is an 8mp cameraphone with an AMOLED touchscreen display. See how it performs in our review, which includes 3 HD videos.

I have always been a Nokia user and decided to try something a little different. Was originally thinking of getting an iPhone but opted for the Samsung Optima, then the i900 by checking out reviews and ebay. Went to my local phone dealer and they put...
