Samsung GALAXY Gio Review
low- to mid-range Android smartphones in January, and the Samsung Galaxy Gio was in the mix there – an Android 2.2 phone with a 3.2” display, and 800MHz processor. With the four humble handsets, Samsung demonstrated that it is not only shooting for the stars with phones like the Galaxy S II, but also considering the mere mortal, price-conscious cell phone shoppers. Did it succeed to strike the fine features/price balance with the Samsung Galaxy Gio? Read on to find out...
The Samsung Galaxy Gio is thick just enough, with tapered back cover edges, and rounded corners, which make it fit well in the hand. Samsung leaves the glossy black plastic back in 2010, and on the Galaxy Gio we have dotted pattern, which looks nice.
You can compare the Samsung Galaxy Gio with many other phones using our Size Visualization Tool.
The 3.2” LCD display sports the decent for its size 320x480 pixels resolution, and is of quite good quality. It is bright, with good viewing angles for a regular TFT-LCD screen, and rich color gamut. We've seen much, much worse displays on touchscreen phones at this price point.
The Samsung Galaxy Gio has a 3MP camera on the back, without a flash, next to a speaker grill. There is a nice long power/lock button on the right side, very easy to find and press, and the microSD slot is placed on the right side too, which adds to the overall comfort feel of the device, since you don't have to remove the battery cover each time you want to take out the memory card.
Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Gio has very simple and pleasant design, the display is good, while the buttons around the sides are easy to press. On top of that, the handset is very, very light, at 3.6 oz (102 gr).
