Samsung Galaxy Gio S5660 review: Average Gio


It's devices like the Samsung Galaxy Gio that helped Android gain so much ground in so little time. They are a better bargain than the uber-smartphone and find their way into people's pockets a lot easier. With that goal in mind, the Galaxy Gio must be...

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA support ; 3.2" 16M-color TFT capacitive touchscreen of HVGA (320 x 480 pixels) resolution, multi-touch ; 800MHz ARM 11 processor, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset; 278MB of RAM available...

Poor video recording ; No shutter key for the camera ; No Adobe Flash support in the web browser ; No ambient light sensor for auto brightness ; No DivX/Xvid video support out of the box

The Galaxy Gio is part of the new Samsung midrange along with the Ace, the Mini and the Fit. All these gadgets have a similar objective – offer the all round Android experience within budget. The Ace and the Gio are obviously cast in the same mold. No...

Samsung GALAXY Gio Review


Samsung announced a quartet of 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. Did the manufacturer succeed to strike the fine...

Samsung Galaxy Gio

A well-rounded Android 2.2 (Froyo) device; Affordable

No full Flash support

While known as "jewel" in Italian, the Samsung Galaxy Gio does not quite possess the shine and luxury but at the price point of RM 799, it’s still a pretty good deal if you’re looking for a middle range Android device. However as mentioned in the...

Samsung Galaxy Gio Review


Samsung Galaxy Gio is a mid-range Android 2.2 smartphone from the Samsung Galaxy family. The phone is all about connectivity and multimedia features. It is a small smartphone with an amazing design and enhanced features for those who want to stay...

With an amazing 3.2 inch TFT touch screen, 800MHz processor, Android 2.2, 3MP camera, 3G, Wi-Fi, the smartphone is a complete entertainment package. However, Samsung Galaxy Gio’s processor could easily have been 1GHz and the OS Android 2.4, but overall...

Samsung Galaxy Gio hands-on test


The reasonably sized Samsung Galaxy Gio looks like a slick option if you don't want a pocket-bursting giant of a smart phone. Its processor isn't as fast as those found in some of the latest Android handsets, though.

Small and attractive ; Sharp screen ; Powerful Android software

Relatively slow processor

The Samsung Galaxy Gio is a good-looking, medium-sized alternative to the current crop of monolithic, pocket-bursting smart phones. With a sharp screen and plenty of features, we have high hopes for this handset

Samsung Galaxy Gio


The Samsung Galaxy Gio is outstanding value for money, basically delivering last year's best smartphone experience in a cheaper, affordable package.

Outstanding performance ; Decent screen for the price ; Full range of connectivity and software

No camera flash

If you're looking to dodge a carrier contract and have AU$200 to spend on a phone, we highly recommend the Galaxy Gio. It's 3.2-inch display is better than its rivals, and the performance of this system is outstanding. It runs an older version of the...

Samsung Galaxy Gio


The Korean tech firm Samsung's Galaxy range is populated by a variety of Android-operating inhabitants. TechSmart reviews one which is targeted at the first-time smartphone users or limited-budget crowd.

Samsung's Galaxy Gio sports great functionality and features for its sub-2k budget pricetag, including a quick 800 MHz processor and better than expected 3.15 MP snapper. It goes for a recommended retail price of R1999, which is cheaper than both...
