Ever since the iPhone hit the shelves, Samsung have been cranking out touchscreen mobile phones like there’s no tomorrow, but one of the nicest of the year is still the Samsung Tocco, which is, to put it simply, drop-dead gorgeous. Oh, and really nice to use, too. Oh, and it has a superb camera. And the internet browser’s spot on.
You may have guessed that I like it…
Well, now, for the full-on fashionistas, there’s a new version, the Samsung F480 Hugo Boss, according to Unwired View, and it’s… well, actually, it’s suspiciously similar to the original Samsung Tocco. So, what differences are there, to make the Samsung F480 Hugo Boss the phone to buy?
Look, I have to be honest, here, the spec is exactly the same. It’s basically still a Samsung Tocco, with the same touchscreen interface, the same 5 megapixel camera, the same web browser, the same multimedia player… well, you get the idea. To all intents and purposes, the Samsung F480 Hugo Boss is the Samsung Tocco. There must be some differences, you’re surely thinking…
There are. On the Samsung F480 Hugo Boss, you get the name Hugo Boss plastered all over the front. And, erm, the theme is changed slightly to use special Hugo Boss icons and whatnot. Erm, and I’m a bit stumped as to what the exclusive Hugo Boss ringtones are, though (maybe someone whispering Hugo Boss over and over again, like in their adverts?). Oh, and of course, you do get a matching Hugo Boss Bluetooth headset.
All things considered, I can’t deny that the Samsung F480 Hugo Boss is a damn sexy mobile phone. Honestly, it really is one of the most striking mobile phones of recent times, and it’s packed full of features that will benefit you.
But the thing is… so is the Samsung Tocco, since they’re virtually identical, and although the Hugo Boss doesn’t have any prices yet, I’m willing to bet you’ll pay at least a bit of a premium for it. So, why wouldn’t you get the Samsung Tocco, instead, if they’re basically the same phone?
Still, if you want a bit of exclusivity in your purchase, with a designer name on your handset, then by all means get the Samsung F480 Hugo Boss. Me? I’d have the original Tocco.
