I'm using it for few month now. stock rom rooted and it's pretty good, no problem at all. battery life is not that bad, it will support you for a day.
Anonymous, 03 Jan 2012please tell how to see sms on pc like nokia pc suit. kies is not supporting !!!! Use "airdroid" app
This phone is RUBBISH stay the heck away from it!
SOO Many problems including:
1. Regular hangs if Wi-Fi is left on - u have to remove the battery to reboot it!
2. If in the mode where the screen turns off during a call, you often can't hang-up after the call, so if the other person doesnt, you have to pull the battery out!
3. Disgraceful touch screen. To start an SMS you almost have to poke ya finger through the glass!
4. It doesnt tell you how many characters you have typed when typing an SMS. In Australia
we want to know if we exceed 160 as we'll be charge for a 2nd msg.
DONT GO NEAR THIS CRAP!

shahil, 03 Jan 2012Does an upgrade to gingerbread improve the phones battery usage time.......and what else does ... moreSome users say that gingerbread upgrade did improve battery performance. It also solves the problems of wifi error and random shutdowns that were present in froyo.
Yes, rooting is not only possible but also very easy on gio. It grants you superuser access level and then you can flash stock/custom roms of your choice, install tweaks to boost performance and a lot more things. You better search on google to get detailed guide on how to root your gio.

Sajjad Khan, 02 Jan 2012This set support skype video chat. ? Pls adviseNo, it doesn't since it doesn't have front camera. However, if you just want to transmit your video then you can use Tango app. It supports rear camera for video chat but during that you won't be able to see the video of person you're chatting with.

shoaib, 31 Dec 2011The phone is good, only thing i hate about it iss GPS accuracy. That's strange because I have observed that its pretty much accurate while driving and walking. I have tested it in cities and on highways and it has just been great! How many satellites do you get locked with?
BRS, 22 Dec 2011Can anyone review regarding GPS experience with samsung Gio?. Now I am using nokia ovi maps!.I use GPS in my Gio extensively and I must say that it has never disappointed me. The only issue I faced was a slow fix but I resolved that by installing an app from market (it requires root). Now I get a fix very quickly. I have used both sygic and google for navigation.
Overall, my experience with Gio's GPS has been great!
