Verizon Will Release the Low-Cost Samsung Gusto 2
Verizon will release a successor to the original Gusto, the Samsung Gusto 2. The flip handset comes with a smooth exterior and compact profile. For easier dialing and messaging, Samsung fitted a contoured keypad to the body. Popular social networking features, such as Facebook and Twitter are ready at hand to allow users make quick status updates. The Samsung Gusto 2 offers clearer voice calls quality due to the availability of a noise suppression technology, called Dynamic Voice Enhancement. Sub-menus are vocally expressed and users can get audio notifications on the current status of the phone.
Other attributes include a 1.3Mp shooter on the back, with features such as timer, shooting capability and brightness control. Users can apply numerous special effects on images such as B&W, negative and sephia. A dedicated one-touch key allows users to access essential function such as voice call, which is important during an emergency situation. It comes with VZ Navigator, Bluetooth and 2” display, which is a bit too restrictive for today’s standard. The built-in GPS system provides turn-by-turn direction during a road trip and a rather interesting feature called “Fake Call” may be helpful to avoid awkward situations. After a $50 mail-in rebate, Verizon subscribers can get the phone for $79.99 with a two-year agreement.
