Samsung Tocco Icon

The Good Smart phone functions on a feature phone; compact size; impressive battery life.

The Bad Speaker isn't powerful enough; no 3G data connectivity.

The Bottom Line The Tocco Icon is a feature phone that feels and operates like a smart phone. Its svelte frame and impressive battery life make it ideal for younger mobile users, but the lack of 3G connectivity will leave heavy net-surfers feeling a bit deflated.
