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

 

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...

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...

The Samsung Galaxy Gio is by no means a cutting-edge smartphone, and lets itself down with its poor camera smarts and lack of Flash support. Still, with its excellent screen and high-speed connectivity, it's a viable option for those in the market for...
