Samsung Gusto ( Verizon Wireless)


As an entry-level metallic-gray-and-black flip phone, the Samsung Gusto is the spitting image of the Samsung Smooth , though its feature set and design slightly differ. Although there are some nice features inside, the phone's build and call quality...

The Samsung Gusto has a user-friendly menu interface and useful features like voice commands, a Bing search app, and VZ Navigator. It also has a highly affordable price.

The Samsung Gusto has a cheap, plasticky feel and mediocre call quality.

The entry-level Samsung Gusto has some useful features and a great price, but with mediocre call quality and a flimsy construction, it generates little more than mild interest.

Samsung Gusto SCH-U360 (Verizon Wireless)


The Samsung Gusto SCH-U360 is cheap and cheerful, and that's not a bad thing. It offers quality voice calls, compatibility with VZ Navigator, and that's pretty much about it. Even the camera is sub-par. If you only need the basics, the Gusto is OK. But...

Good voice quality. Solid battery life. Offers GPS directions

Poor camera. No music or video players. Low screen resolution

The Samsung Gusto is a good voice phone and works well as a budget GPS device substitute, but that's pretty much all it does.

Samsung Gusto Review


The Samsung Gusto U360 is a basic and budget oriented flip phone for Verizon Wireless that is a follow up to the Samsung Smooth U350, which in turn replaced the Samsung Snap U340, though not a lot has changed between these models, except for the...

Samsung Gusto Review


Review of the Samsung Gusto, available in Verizon Wireless's lineup of phones. Explore the features of the phone, including the design, navigation controls and more.

If you love feature-packed phones with state of the art technology, then obviously the Gusto isn’t for you. But if you are just looking for a simple phone to talk and text on, you could do a lot worse. I wish the design of the phone was a little...

Samsung Gusto


The Samsung Gusto is a basic phone. It does not contain any fancy bells and whistles that many other prepaid cell phones or smartphones possess. However, it has a long battery life, Bluetooth technology and a web browser that give this device a few...

The Samsung Gusto is compact, easy-to-use and weighs just 3.28 ounces

This cell phone lacks a music player and video-capturing capabilities

The Samsung Gusto is a good basic cell phone but it lacks several bells and whistles.

"The worst phone I've ever had..."


I talked to a cell phone development engineer and he said the phone is the issue and not the network or cell booster/amps. It's a "cheap" phone that costs too much and does not perform calling or receiving calls. Material and construction are horrible,...

Battery life

Won't make calls half the time even with 2 to 3 bars showing. Verizon replaced the original phone for the same problem and the replacement phone is just as bad. When near a cell booster, the phone returns error and drops the call.

"Cheap, inconsistent reception, alarm doesn't work."


Be very careful what you are buying, check it out first on the internet. Find out what the store policies are. When you have to pay more for a return than the product costs in the first place something is very WRONG!!!

Cheap $19.99 at the Verizon store. Verizon after having it for 2 days taking them back, Verizon wanted to charge a $35 restocking fee per phone.

Everything. The phone quality is sorely lacking and how Samsung could even dream up a MSRP of $199.99 for this piece of junk is incredible.

Only ONE OK Thing about this phone...


I pretty much agree with most of the reviews I've read... This phone is JUNK... The one, and only good thing about this phone is the Battery life, instead of the standard battery, I bought an extended battery... The internet on this phone is USELESS,...

The battery life... I bought an Extended battery

Everything else
