The battery is poor and there isn't enough RAM but otherwise this phone is decent

Anonymous, 03 Jun 2013I used this phone for a couple of months.But now theres suddenly appears on my screen. Sorry!... morewhile the phone is off press and hold the center button and switching button simultaneously until a Samsung logo appears the choose wipe option but i will clean all the data from the phone anyway your phone will work again
Im sathesh,I am using this phone till sim months. at the first month it would be very much prefer for me but after some times later its really sukz. net speed is really slow when im going to browse something i would be irritated. ant the biggest issue is there is no multi task function. it would be very bad. perphs it won't get the toch input. GOd!!! im suck with this !!!
I traded my blackberry 9300 for the Samsung Galaxy Gio and i haven't had any issues apart from the short batery life. But this is because it is a used phone. after a while i rooted my Gio to cyanogenmod 10.1, and i love this phone even more. This is not the ideal phone for people installing lots of apps due to the small internal storage size. There are some software where you can move your apps to the sd card. Overall if i could rate this phone i would give it 8/10. Also i am clumsy some times and i have dropped my phone probably a 100 times. and all i can see is maybe a few scratch marks on the body.

Rooted it, installed CM 10.1(Jelly Bean), froze bloatware using Titanium backup, and over clocked the CPU. Runs like a dream except for occasional lag and internal storage issues. (Link2SD solves that problem) I'm actually impressed by this thing's performance. Definitely worthwhile if you know how to squeeze every ounce of its potential out.
Have been using this device for about a year and a half and I have to get rid of this crap! Battery life suxs like f*** and camera is crap.
It was all fine the first Month but then it started lagging and did not respond to my touch... Looking for a cheap android phone? Look elsewhere
The kid is a hero. Have had it for two long years and it runs beautifully. Traded the stock ROM for Cyanogen 7.2 and it gave the phone a new breath of life (don't try anything higher than Android 2.3.7 for anything other than kicks or bragging rights, the processor isn't up to the task). On low powered networks it drains the battery rather quickly, but where coverage is good, it runs the whole day on half a battery (I used to live in Brazil, now I live in Estonia, extremely different approaches to telco). I'm only trading up because Google left the people on Android 2.3 behind, most 3rd party apps work fine, but Google's are no longer updating and most new functions are reserved to newer devices. Shame on you, Google!
i ve samsung galaxy gio for sel. its sti vry neat email on firstname.lastname@example.org if u are interested
The battery is poor. Have to charge it twice a day (day and nite). Hardly lasts 24 hrs. The phone also does not have battery saving specifications like those found on S3. I can't believe thius is from Samsung which I always rated highly.
It worked shitty on 4.0 and 2.3. Now running 4.2.2 and it's as smooth as ever. This is not a recommendation. Do not get this phone.
