Wooohooooo !!! :D
I upgraded my gio to gingerbread 2.3.5 yesterday :D
Install samsung kies and it will itself prompt you to upgrade your phone to the latest firmware :)
NICk, 26 Nov 2011Does this phone have touch sensitive controls????u mean keys at the bottom ??
If yes then YES :)
gio only has a single button at its front, both keys around the middle button are touch sensitive they are not actually buttons

AnonD-31938, 29 Nov 2011Plz.. Reply .. can we play youtube video..!ofc u can play youtube videos. u can play a lot of movie formats. u can install video players like bsplayer and codecs directly from android market...FREE.
i have this phone and it's great. i upgraded andtroid on 2.3. battery is bad. i charge gio every day at evening. in serbia it' 110 euros . for that money that is the best phone i ever see.
No doubt its a goood choice for the price.. I mean it. yes batttery is at downside, but thats the issue with most of the droids. I am using it, camera is goood (goood means its what that u can expect from a 3MP phone), but I would sugggest heavy users to stay away from it coz of battery and ram, otherwise most of the users will stay satisfied.
Joseph, 20 Nov 2011Should I go for samsung galaxy gio? I've read very very bad comments regarding galaxy gio. Is ... moreI've had it for a week or two now and i can assure you i've no random shutdowns. The battery lasts me more than a day even if i play games on it for a fair while. If i don't do anything with it i'd estimate the battery'd last 3-5 days, just remember to disable wifi etc when not using it.
Guys I previously owned an htc desire until a small mishap with the phone made me go and buy another phone. This time not wanting to spend a lot of money I bought the GIO. At first I was a little skeptical about it's status but after usage I realized that there is not much difference from my previous phone. Apart from the proprietary company softwares not much difference. At times I do feel it's a tad slow than my Desire but not a significant difference. Now I plan to upgrade it to gingerbread 2.3. Lastly a good phone to own in budget range cos if you lose an expensive phone just like that it really hurts but this GIO baby really made my day.
As oposed to S2, Gio can actually fit in your pockets and it`s much cheaper.
I`ve had this phone for 2 months, now.
I am impressed with solid construction (back lid gives you a sense of grip)and fast proccessor.
Kies upgraded it to 2.3.3 Gingerbread.
Lack of flashlite is kind of frustrating since overall camera works fine (has autofocus).
This is my first phone with wireless and GPS and you can imagine my satisfaction since they work out just fine.
I am reading quite a lot on internet on wireless, 10-15 calls and sms per day and the battery has juice for 1-1.5 days, but I don`t mind.
Overall, the best phone I ever had.

If you want to buy android phone be sure you can adapt to new technology because this is a sensitive-type of phone. This is not like the basic phone you used before. Keep basic if you don't want yourself complicated.

Devil's Advocate, 21 Nov 2011when i had GIO with android 2.2.1 its fine and great as i updated to 2.3.3 it slows down and ... moreEither you'll have to root your set to install froyo again or take it to customer service center and ask them to do it. I'm not sure about second option though but you should try it first because that might not require rooting.
