  • Excerpt: everything is fine, appart from the fact it turns itself off constantly at random times (3 or 4 times a day) then wont turn on unless i take the back off and take out the battery, then turn it on.
  • Pros: everything is fine, appart from the fact it turns itself off constantly at random times (3 or 4 times a day) then wont turn on unless i take the back off and take out the battery, then turn it on. also the bottons at the bottom dont work from time to time, have to turn the phone off and back on to get them to work
  • Cons: everything is fine, appart from the fact it turns itself off constantly at random times (3 or 4 times a day) then wont turn on unless i take the back off and take out the battery, then turn it on. also the bottons at the bottom dont work from time to time, have to turn the phone off and back on to get them to work

  • Summary: Average phone. Reasonably simple to use when you have sorted out the features. I suppose they are similar to other brand makes.

Not built to last

  • Summary: The phone works great for about a year but after that it slowly starts to die. First my battery went then the place to charge my phone went. I ended up having to buy 3 new batteries and another wall charger. The phone stopped holding a charge at all a few months later. I now go through 4 batteries a day. It's now stopped taking pictures and the few it does take are not clear. It tells me daily my memory is full and my message memory is full but it isn't.

Gio is a satisfactory device

mariolibe..., Ciao
14 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I have bought a Samsung Galaxy Gio some time ago, to repair my outdated HTC Polaris (AKA Touch Cruise), which was a great device, with Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional (yes, the predecessor to Windows Phone 7). Well, Gio was my first Android device (not really, my HTC Polaris was modified so I had Android 2.0 instead of the stock Windows Mobile. Well, don't get me wrong, WM is (or was) a great operating system, but it is outdated). Well, anyway, lets get started.
  • Pros: Not too expensive, good battery time, satisfactory camera quality
  • Cons: Old ARMv6 CPU won't handle most modern games .

  • Summary: Replaced a Samsung older model phone with this. Since then we have been back numerous times to the retailer with poor batery life (10 to 15 minutes of talk and the battery has to be recharged. Phone locks up and must be turned off to unlock. We sent this phone back for service (charged a $20.00 fee even though the phone was less than one year old).

User Review

Gearburn, Rates Direct Shopping
20 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Despite the manifest flaws, it’s a decent enough entry level smartphone for those without the cash to burn. You’re not getting Gorilla glass, and you’re not getting Harmon Kardon audio, and you’re not editing videos on the fly. But you are Mapping, and Googling, and WhatsApping, and Angry Birdsing, and Tweeting, and Facebooking and Skyping.
  • Pros: Nice and compact — light and fits in the pocket or bag easily Good range of features and specs for the price
  • Cons: Touch screen is definitely second tier Predictive text system predicts like the Weather Bureau
