What the Critics Are Saying...


GSMArena

Still photographs are among the best, videos are excellent and we were left with nothing but positive impressions of it.

I have to admit that I am quite enamored with the Samsung S8300 Ultra Touch / Tocco Ultra Edition. It is a beautiful device to hold, look at, and use. It does have a few flaws, though. GSM reception is pretty weak, and the CPU seems to be overtaxed all too often. I really love the 8 megapixel camera...

CNET

The Samsung Tocco Ultra is a big bundle of features packed into a sexy silhouette, crowned with a stunning AMOLED touchscreen. The user interface isn't as easy to use as it could have been, but it's flexible and fun to customise, thanks to the widgets on the home screen.
