The Grandstream GXV3275 is a 2nd generation Android IP video phone from Grandstream. It has a built in SIP client and and can also run app store applications. One of the featured apps in the Grandstream store is Microsoft Lync 2013 Mobile, which is the focus of this review.
First, some of the interesting specs:
- Android 4.2 so it runs Lync Mobile 2013
- 7” 1024x600 Capacitive touch screen (feels like a mobile phone, responsive, swipe etc)
- 1 Megapixel CMOS camera with physical privacy shutter
- Dedicated volume, home, menu and back touch “buttons”
- 2 1GB Ethernet ports so it plugs into your network
- Bluetooth & WIFI 802.1b/g/n supported
- HDMI to plug into a big screen
- 2 USB, Headset and SD memory card slot on the right side behind a
- Included in the box
- power cord (also supports POE)
- Wall mount (don’t expect to see a lot of these on the wall?)
- touch screen wipe!
- Manual, Cat5 cable

My initial impression is good build quality and the GXV3275 runs the Lync 2013 app just fine. The 7” touch screen is responsive, nice size & brilliant and you can use it to control Lync just like on any Android tablet. At the moment the integration between the handset and Lync is not smooth and needs improvement. Also, the phone has a message waiting indicator but it is not integrated to Lync at this time. With improvement in the area of hardware integration the GXV3275 could be a very interesting option for Lync users.
