Samsung Tocco Lite S5230: Sleek and Simply Beautiful

Tocco-LiteSamsung has really outdone itself with the Samsung Tocco Lite. Apart from providing a glare resistive display and a compact design that emphasizes the large screen, the Samsung Tocco Lite S5230 has been built not only for personal communication but for other activities as well; the CMOS sensor packs a decent 3 megapixels, enough for those vital still shots during vacations. The camera is also capable of face and smile detection for patented Samsung “smile shots”.
Basic features
The Samsung Tocco Lite S5230 makes use of touchscreen technology; it’s a good thing that they’ve included an accelerometer sensor, so you won’t have to swipe at the touchscreen too much. They’ve also included FM radio capability (internal FM radio receiver), music recognition and Gesture lock.
The Samsung S5230 does not have a keypad or full-sized keyboard. Instead, they’ve maximized the touchscreen candy bar form factor and have made people more dependent on the screen for all their input needs. We’re wondering just how durable that touchscreen is. Only time will tell whether they’ve committed an error in not including even basic physical controls for the Samsung Tocco Lite S5230.
Connectivity & networking
Quadband GSM networking is possible with the following frequencies: 850, 900, 1800 and 1900 megahertz. Internet access is also available through GPRS and internet and voice calls through EDGE functionality. Measuring a decent 104.0 mm x 53.0 mm x 11.9 mm (weight 93 grams), the phone has also been installed with Bluetooth version 2.0 capability and Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP functionality.

The Samsung Tocco Lite S5230’s basic storage can be expanded through the MicroSD card slot. Unfortunately, Samsung had not included Hot Swap™ technology with the Samsung Tocco Lite. Nevertheless, the Samsung S5230 can support up to 16 gigabytes of extra memory. Extra memory is necessary, because they’ve only loaded the device with 87 megabytes of basic internal storage. That’s about enough for only a few hundred photos and some videos with this Samsung phone.
