14 Comments

The Tocco Lite is a lovely little phone - the touch screen is nice and easy to use and I like the widgets on the front screen :-). It seems really responsive and doesnt seem to have any problems that I know of. Not got one myself but have a friend who does and he's happy with it.

Havent seen the other two in the flesh so cant compare specifically sorry.

My mrs has a Genio Touch and loves it, especially change-able back of the phone and really responsive touch screen (especially compared to my SE Satio). She's had no problems in about 5 months using it, also excellent battery life on it. Great little phone for the price.

£60 from tesco (without topup). they are currently doing 25% off with 500 free club card points.

I like there network as it run by O2 and if I top up £10 I get £20 free credit to spend on anything for a month. thats also weather I top up monthly or 3 months later.

I have seen it for £60 other places but you need to get topup with it so becomes £70

no problems what was the phone you got but didn't like. I had the KS360 and it had bad battery life (seems common with LG) I wouldn't really recommend it unless you want very easy texting with the qwerty keyboard.
