Samsung Gusto Review
Samsung phones usually have pretty good call quality, as on the Intensity II and Reality, but this is not the case with the Gusto U360. Voices sound a bit distant, almost like someone is talking down a hallway, and there is also a slight echo delay that could be heard on our end. People that we called did not experience this echo delay, but did say that our voice sounded a bit distant. Reception was also a bit below par, as we only got 1-2 bars of signal bars showing in high coverage areas. Because of this, we’d recommend the LG Accolade or Clout, as both of those flip phones have better voice quality and reception.

The included 1000mAh battery is rated to provide up to 7 hours of talk time or 14 days of standby time of a full charge. However, we were only able to get up to 6 hours of continuous talk time on a full charge.


Conclusion:

When all is said and done, the Samsung Gusto U360 is fairly basic flip phone for those looking for a bargain. Its features are pretty lacking, so bear that in mind, and the voice quality isn’t the best we’ve heard either. For the same price, the LG Accolade is actually the better deal, as it has better voice quality and reception, higher resolution display, 1.3MP camera, and can get 7.5 hours of talk time.

Software version of the reviewed unit: u360.DE60
