Another Windows Mobile handset has been savaged by the PhoneArena review team. This time it is the Gigabyte GSmart S1200, who’s list of faults are much too long to recount, and who scored a dismal 6.5 out of 10.
In spite of its appealing overall look, varied and personalized interface, the GIGA-BYTE GSmart S1200 is a mediocre Windows phone. We donâ€™t suppose anyone would be willing to sacrifice the comfort of use and proper functionality for showy interface. The low in-call quality and sluggish speed of the handset prevent us from being able to recommend it. In case you are firmly intent on getting yourself a compact Windows Mobile 6.5 cell phone, consider the HTC Touch2 and Samsung OmniaLITE B7300. The former runs the already proven TouchFLO interface and our first impression of the device is that itâ€™s a snappy performer indeed. The prototype of the Samsung OmniaLITE B7300 that we had the chance to test impressed us with its performance and the final units will come with the widget-based TouchWiz interface, similarly to all other members of the same family.
