CC, 24 Jan 2012does this phone have video calling,if yes how do you set it up?No, and that's disappointing!
when updated to gingerbread are applications installed straight to sd card?????????and is akies update the best or should i download the file directly from the internet and install it with odin?????
Sound quality when listening music over headphones is terrible comparing to my old Nokia 5310 XpressMusic. Phone keeps catching some pulsing noise. It is not so noticeable in noise environment during day, but it drives me crazy in quite environment (night or evening).
Radio quality is even worse. I can't listen radio at all - 20-30% is buzzing noise.
I tried various headphones, but got same issues. The more expensive headphones I used - more noise they captured.
I thought that maybe my phone is broken. But when I borrowed another phone I got same issues.

Horrible battery... moreI am quite a serious user of gio (rely on it from GPS navigation, watching live tv, communicating with friends via social app to daily email/message/phone call) and I tell you that it is a great phone (and pretty affordable too here in Pakistan).
Wifi issues are there on froyo so if you upgrade to gingerbread they are gone. Also the freeze/shutdown issue goes away with upgrading too.
As for battery issues then it depends upon usage. Sometimes I have charged my battery twice a day and sometimes after 2-3 days. It totally depends upon usage. But I agree that it doesn't have a remarkable battery timing.
I in no way tried to prove you wrong. Just wanted to tell others the solutions to the problems you faced.

Picture quality is nice too if exposure is good. Check the picture quality from gsmarena's picture quality tool. It offers many other features as well. If you're asking about camera flash then no it doesn't have that. However, you can install adobe flash on it.

It is one of the most cheap and shoddy Saumsung Android phones in the market. Horrible battery time and wifi issues are endless. Also freezes many times. Its just a toy for kids. No serious users. Dr Kamran Dodhy, Lahore, Pakistan.
juni, 14 Jan 2012what is its make origin? can its Theme be changeable?Its made by Samsung so its Korean of course. It might very well be manufactured in various countries too.
Theme is changeable if you're using launchers other than default TouchWiz.

Why in my samsung galaxy gio. The show battery use doesnt show other application only show maps voice calls , display and some other percents. But didnot show all. How can i solve this problem.
Hi everyone... this is an awesome phone which now comes genuinely with android 2.3.3 gingerbread! internal memory is 180 MB and RAM is 278 MB No problem at all except the battery which drains pretty quick It does not support skype video calling neither flash in the browser though the speed is pretty good. touch sensitivity is awesome with beautiful colors. Camera result is VERY good due to the autofocus. In the box there is a Samsung "kies" C.D for software updating, a micro USB charger, an earphone, a USB cable and a user's manual. It has a CAPACITIVE touch screen which is heat sensitive not pressure so, won't work with anything except the fingers... this is similer to the iPhones and every other good phone in the market. Take care!!
i am using galaxy gio since 7 months and i really like the build quality ,camera,video recoder after update it records videos at 30 fps even in low light , processor , gpu , i played all the hd games on gio like gt racing hd,asphalt 5 hd, nova hd,gangstar mv hd,galaxy on fire 2 hd, nfs shift hd , need for speed hot persuit , etc etc they all work smooth as butter ..because i rooted my mobile and install chain fire 3d which comes between gpu amd mobile and can increase performance.....hahaha
