The weight of Gigabyte GSmart G1317D is about 4.09 oz with battery, which is average compared to most of the smartphones with same size. The dimensions of this Gigabyte smartphone are average (4.47 x 2.36 x 0.52 inch). Smaller smartphones are more compact and easier to carry around, but they may have smaller displays that can be harder to read and interact with.
|OS version||Android OS v2.2 (Froyo)|
|SoC||Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 MSM7225-1|
|CPU||528 MHz ARM 11|
The Gigabyte GSmart G1317D comes with Android OS v2.2 (Froyo) out of the box, but it is upgradable to the next OS. Android is closely integrated with various Google services, such as Google Maps, Gmail, and Google Drive, which makes it easy for users to access and manage their data across multiple devices. The Gigabyte GSmart G1317D has Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 MSM7225-1 chipset. This CPU can be fast enough for basic phone operations. The GSmart G1317D utilizes no GPU. A GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is a specialized chip that is primarily designed to handle and accelerate the processing of graphics and visual data. It is responsible for rendering images, videos, and animations on a smartphone screen.
|Screen size||3.2 inch|
|Resolution||320 x 480 px|
The 3.2 inch phone comes with TFT display. A thin-film transistor (TFT) is a type of field-effect transistor that is usually used in a liquid crystal display (LCD). This type of display features a thin-film transistor for each individual pixel. In recent years, many smartphone manufacturers have moved towards using other display technologies, such as OLED and AMOLED, which offer some advantages over TFT.
Smaller smartphones are generally more compact and easier to handle. The size of the screen is measured diagonally, from corner to corner. A larger screen typically requires more power to illuminate, which can impact battery life.
|Internal storage||512 MB|
|Memory card slot||microSD|
256 MB of RAM is not typically considered to be enough for a smartphone. Most smartphones today come with at least 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM, and some high-end devices have even more. Having more RAM alone does not necessarily guarantee better performance, and other factors such as the processor and storage speed can also impact overall performance. 32 GB of internal storage is generally considered to be the minimum amount of storage you would want in a smartphone. The GSmart G1317D has only 512 MB of internal storage. The internal storage of the GSmart G1317D (512 MB) can be expanded with a compatible microSD card. A microSD card is a type of small, removable flash memory card used to store digital information.
|Main camera||3.15 MP, 2048 x 1536 px|
The GSmart G1317D offers only a single-camera setup. The single camera can still be sufficient for many smartphone users, depending on their photography needs and preferences. The camera of the GSmart G1317D has no autofocus capability (fixed-focus). An autofocus (or AF) optical system uses a sensor, a control system and a motor to focus on an automatically or manually selected point or area. Very few Android cameras come without autofocus. The GSmart G1317D does not have optical image stabilization (OIS). OIS technology is more commonly found in higher-end smartphones and is designed to reduce camera shake and blur, resulting in sharper and clearer images and videos.
|GSM 2G bands||850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900|
|Network coverage||2G / 3G|
|Wi-Fi||Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g|
|Headphone||3.5 mm jack|
The Gigabyte GSmart G1317D supports 2G and 3G networks only. 3G is obsolete now, because most phones can use 4G and 5G networks. The Gigabyte GSmart G1317D like all modern smartphones, is capable of connecting to Wi-Fi networks. Wi-Fi networks use radio waves to transmit data between devices and a wireless access point, which is typically connected to a wired network and serves as a hub for wireless devices to connect to the internet or other networks.
With Bluetooth connectivity, you can connect your GSmart G1317D smartphone to a wide range of Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, speakers, smartwatches, fitness trackers, and more. This phone has a built-in GPS. GPS is a highly accurate navigation system using signals from satellites to determine a location on the Earth's surface, irrespective of weather conditions. Most phones have a GPS unit on board.
The GSmart G1317D isn't NFC (Near Field Communication) capable. NFC is not essential for basic phone functionality, but it can be useful for a variety of tasks and features. The GSmart G1317D phone has built-in FM radio receiver. FM radio allows users to tune in to local radio stations and listen to live broadcasts, news, music, and other content. The GSmart G1317D has a microUSB port. MicroUSB is a type of USB connector that was commonly used on older smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. The GSmart G1317D smartphone has a 3.5 mm headphone jack. A 3.5 mm headphone jack is a small round port, that allows you to connect wired headphones or earphones to the device.
|Type||Li-Ion 1260 mAh|
The Li-Ion 1260 mAh battery gives the smartphone a good battery backup. The Li-ion is a low maintenance battery which offers high energy, is lightweight and does not require periodic full discharge. The battery of GSmart G1317D is removable. You can simply buy a new piece from the open market and interchange it easily by yourself.
|Sensors||accelerometer, compass, light, proximity|
Smartphones today come with a wealth of sensors to facilitate a better user experience. The accelerometer provides information about the smartphone's movement in three axes: X (horizontal), Y (vertical), and Z (depth). This Gigabyte phones come with proximity sensor. This proximity sensor detects how close the phone is to an outside object, such as your ear. The GSmart G1317D phone comes with a compass sensor. A compass sensor is a device that provides accurate directions in relation to the earth's North and South magnetic poles.
The ambient light sensor detects the level of ambient light in the surrounding environment. The main purpose of a light sensor in a smartphone is to automatically adjust the brightness of the device's display. The Dual SIM capability of Gigabyte GSmart G1317D phone is ideal for businesses wishing to provide staff with a mobile device that can offer separate numbers and bills for both personal and business use.
