The Samsung Galaxy Fit and Samsung Galaxy Gio make up the rest of Samsung’s Galaxy Family collection, along with the Galaxy Ace and Galaxy mini.
Due to arrive in the UK in March, the Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Gio both run on Android 2.2 Froyo, which makes for fast browsing and multitasking. This also means you can run the majority of apps from the Android Market that require 2.2 and above. Things like Facebook Chat for example, only work on Android phones running 2.2+.
The Samsung Galaxy Fit (above) has got a 5-megapixel camera and a 3.31-inch touchscreen, whereas the Samsung Galaxy Gio has a 3-megapixel camera and 3.2-inch touchscreen.
Both phones are suitable for taking pictures for Facebook and Twitter. Uploading pics on the Fit and Gio shouldn’t be a problem either, as both phones come with 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity.

The battery cover of the Samsung Galaxy Fit, with a textured patterned grip – a common theme of the phones from the Galaxy Family. The 5-megapixel camera is up top, no flash though.
The Samsung Galaxy Fit from the side, where there’s a volume rocker and a microSD card slot. The basic internal memory of the Galaxy Fit is just 150MB but it can be expanded up to 32GB with microSD cards. Because it runs on Android 2.2, you’ll be able to save some of your apps to the SD card, freeing up the internal memory.
The Samsung Galaxy Gio might not have as powerful a camera as the Galaxy Fit, but it’s a more polished looking phone; fitting as ‘Gio’ means ‘jewel’ in Italian. The screen also isn’t so small that you can’t personalise it with app shortcuts and widgets.
