Gigabyte GSmart t600 Review
We used SPB Benchmark, to compare GSmart to some fast WM phones. Overall, according to the results, t600 is faster than all the rest and even HP iPAQ 614. Actually this is not so. Its operating speed is not slow but sometimes, during application start and menu navigation, there is a lot of lag.

When having a conversation, you will hear everything very loud, but the sound is very sharp and unreal. At the other end of the line, the situation is worse. The voices are muffled and monotonous, and sometimes, there’s an annoying crackling noise. The loudspeaker is totally unusable.

According to the official data provided by the manufacturer, the battery should provide up to 4 hours of talk and only 150 in standby mode. As we’ve mentioned above, we didn’t like its performance when watching TV.


Conclusion:

Being the first, doesn’t always mean being the best. This is valid for Gigabyte’s GSmart t600 as well. It really is the first in the World Windows Mobile phone allowing you to watch digital TV (DVB-T) free of charge and with good quality. However, we cannot forget about its drawbacks like the weak battery, and the mediocre sound and we can’t decide if its worth it. Currently t600 is the only one of its type on the market and there are no alternatives, but Eten is expected to release its V900 soon. To find out how it will perform is just a matter of time and then we’ll be able to choose.



Pros

  • Digital TV and Radio
  • Pleasant appearance

Cons

  • The battery doesn’t last long when watching TV and in standby mode
  • Low sound quality during a talk
  • No 3G
  • Low camera quality
