The Samsung Tocco Lite 2 offers a very basic smart phone experience for a teeny price. It runs not on Android, or even Windows Phone, but Samsung's own operating system, bada. This gives you access to a basic app store and some smart phone features such as social networking and web browsing. With a diddy, low-resolution 3-inch touchscreen, a 3.2-megapixel camera and a single-core processor, the Tocco Lite 2 offers nothing in the way of exciting new technology -- it's aimed squarely at a budget-strained buyer looking for rudimentary smart phone features.The Tocco Lite 2 is available SIM-free for around £70 or on pay as you go from £55. The Tocco Lite 2 has been a long time coming, and now it's here, it's hard to tell what we've been waiting for. It might give you some idea of just how behind the times this handset is to know that while its predecessor, the Tocco Lite, came out in 2009, there's little significant difference between the two. A three-year gap and a light year's worth of technological innovation has gone unnoticed.Don't be fooled by the Tocco Lite 2's price tag -- there's no bargain to be snapped up here.
The original Samsung Tocco Lite was the little phone that could. It took the world by storm despite boasting modest specs and lacking features that have come to be taken for granted – such as Wi-Fi. Thankfully the Samsung Tocco Lite 2 does have Wi-Fi, but a lot has changed since the 2009 launch of the Samsung Tocco Lite, which in the phone world was a lifetime ago. So has the Tocco Lite 2 done enough to stay competitive?In a bold move from Samsung the Tocco Lite 2 runs the company's own proprietary operating system (Bada) rather than Android (which their Galaxy range has found so much success with). This wasn't such a big deal on the original Samsung Tocco Lite, as back when that came out Android was still finding its feet. But it's 2012 now and a handset that runs anything other than iOS, Android, Windows Phone or, at a push, Blackberry OS, runs the risk of rendering itself instantly obsolete.The Tocco Lite 2's specs aren't exactly going to set the world alight either, with a small 3.0-inch 240 x 320 TFT touch screen, just 20MB of internal storage and a 3.2MP camera. As with the original Samsung Tocco Lite, the Samsung Tocco Lite 2's salvation may be in its price tag.
