Gigabyte updates its lineup with five value-for-money GSmart offers: GX2, Guru, Mika M2, T4 and Arty A3
Gigabyte, no stranger to the world of budget Androids, has updated its Q3 portfolio with no less than 5 handsets - from the 1080p GSmart GX2 and Guru flagships, to the lowly 4" T4. Starting off with the Guru, we get a 5" Full HD panel, a 1.5 GHz quad-core MediaTek processor, 2 GB RAM and the generous 32 GB of storage. Gigabyte has equipped the Guru with a 13 MP camera on the back, and it is all backed up by a hearty 3000 mAh battery, good for 12 hours of talk time.

While the Guru is arriving this month, the other Gigabyte flagship, GX2, is still to be pinned a release date. It also sports a 5" 1080p display, 13 MP camera and 2 GB of RAM, but the internal storage shrinks to 8 GB, and the assigned processor turns into a Snapdragon 400, not to mention that the battery pack shrinks all the way down to 2200 mAh. It is much lighter than the Guru, though, at 135 vs 165 g, and comes with dual SIM functionality.

The other three GSmarts - T4, Mika M2 and Arty A3 - have already hit the shelves. T4 is the lowest denominator here, with a 4" 480x800 display, dual-core MediaTek, and a 5 MP camera. The Arty A3 climbs up the ladder a bit with a 1.3 GHz MediaTek, a 5" FWVGA display, 8 MP camera, 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB of storage, while the Mika M2 is a true wonder with the same MTK processor, but a 5" HD panel, 8 GB of storage, and a generous 13 MP camera on the back. Those last two have 2000 mAh batteries, and are running Android KitKat, which is always a plus.

Haven't heard of Gigabyte lately, even their motherboards. But their phones are not very powerful anyways, just like Archos. I wonder why they didn't use the Snapdragon 600 for their "flagship" if they really want to lower the cost, it's not that much of a difference.

Also, most low end phones are using quad core processors these days, especially Chinese phones. A dual core Mediatek processor will most likely lag.

They're still pretty popular in the pc builder community with motherboards. Good performance with a decent price tag - typing this from a pc I recently built with one in it actually
