Samsung Galaxy Gio S5660 review: Average Gio

06 May 2011
Itís devices like the Samsung Galaxy Gio that helped Android gain so much ground in so little time. They are a better bargain than the uber-smartphone and find their way into peopleís pockets a lot easier. With that goal...

Is it true that LG Optimus One has a lower color density (256K) compared to 6 millions colors in Gio/Ace? Is that affect the screen THAT much?

For multitasking, bigger RAM means better. But if I clean unused apps frequently, I think Gio with just 384MB RAM is good enough.

Processing power, people say Optimus One proc can be overclocked if we want, kinda risky though...

Also, it's funny to see that you guys don't complain about "low resolution" anymore, I remember on 5530 and X6 review when you guys mentioned that there are devices with better resolution and stuff like that (even when iPhone still stucked on HVGA).
However, it doesn't seem a problem for you with this phone.

Gio and LG Optimus One compete in the same price level, almost identical in price to be honest.
Which one is better? LG has slightly slower proc, compared to overclocked proc in Gio/Ace.

When I've seen the image of Gio on the Ace side I've just tought "Look, they are comparing the Galaxy Gio size with the iPhone 4", until I noticed SAMSUNG on the top.
No joke...
