Samsung are prolific in their release schedule. Most of the news and blog outlets follow the path of the the Galaxy S series, of course, with it being the flagship. But those caring to look deeper into the Samsung range will find a whole assortment of phones to perform at all levels and to suit all pockets. The Samsung Gusto 3 is a cell phone which is ideal for those with simpler requirements than a full-screen type smartphone. It will suit older people or just those who want an inexpensive way of keeping in touch.
Looks and Feel
As a flip-top design, the Gusto 3 is very different from a smartphone. The main screen is not open and prone to damage all the time, due to it being “inside” when the phone is closed. It does make the phone a bit thicker than a smartphone, but it also means the weight is reduced. Without the display, a flip-phone doesn’t need to be 6″ tall and 4″ wide. This means lighter and smaller is the name of the game.
The main screen is color and, although not the kind of resolution to make watching movies easy, is clear and bright. Text on the screen is clear and easy to read, and following menu choices is also very clear.
The Gusto 3 feels nice in the hand. It will especially suit those who like to have something to grip. When open, there is plenty to get a hold of and, even when closed, the extra thickness makes holding the phone easy.
The single core processor is plenty zippy enough to keep the Gusto 3 shifting along nicely. The internal color display is responsive to key presses, and is of a very good quality for this type of phone. There’s a numeric keypad, and a D-Pad for getting around the screen and the menus. The second screen shows the time and date, plus notifications of texts and calls etc.
The center, Enter, button is located very well, and overall the buttons and keypad are very clear and easy to read. If your eyesight isn’t as good as it used to be, the high contrast white on black will be perfect.
There’s a headphone jack, plus a loudspeaker, and voice controls are possible for some functions. The camera is a useful 1.3MP, which is plenty for the odd selfie or snap while out and about.
The Samsung Gusto 3 is 2G only, so that means no browsing or emails, just calls and texts. However, it also means that you can run the phone at very low cost. With the Gusto 3, there’s no 4G contract to pay for. Even the cheapest prepaid allowances will keep you going for as long as you need.
Bluetooth and GPS are both here, which is a real bonus in this class of cell phone. A navigation app is built in to the proprietary operating system software. This will help you get the best out of your phone. You can also connect to hands free systems in cars or to bluetooth speakers at home.
At 1000mAh, the batter might not sound like much. But, with only calls and texts to worry about, you will get a ton of life from a single charge. 8hrs talk time and 32 days of standby, in fact.
If you just need to stay in touch with friends and family, the Samsung Gusto 3 is an excellent way to do it. Inexpensive, cheap to run, and capable of doing exactly what a cell phone should do, it’s an excellent choice.
