The "1-Minute" Review

The Samsung Gravity T is a GSM slider that offers some significant improvements over the Gravity 3, including an overall smaller size, a touch screen, customizable home screen options and a WebKit-based browser.

The slide-out full QWERTY keyboard is thoughtfully arranged, with red highlights to draw attention to special keys. The Gravity also offers GPS, Voice Dialing options, Bluetooth, micro-USB connector and a host of customization options for graphics, ringtones, etc.

The 2.8 inch 240 x 320 pixel display is effective, but clearly not rated among higher-end offerings.

With the Samsung Gravity you can send and receive email, text, MMS, play music, take pictures and record video. It’s a versatile phone that should appeal to many customers who need a device that is clearly capable of handling daily, personal affairs.

Rated at six hours of talk time and up to 400 hours of standby time, the Samsung Gravity will fulfill many customer needs, with a touch of style and flair.

What the Critics Are Saying...


PhoneArena

The concept behind the Samsung Gravity T is good enough, but the execution is poor.  The TouchWiz UI simply can’t keep up on the Gravity T, even while it works well on similar devices like AT&T’s Samsung Sunburst.  If the phone were an entry-level $30 unit, like Sprint&...

The concept behind the Samsung Gravity T is good enough, but the execution is poor.  The TouchWiz UI simply can’t keep up on the Gravity T, even while it works well on similar devices like AT&T’s Samsung Sunburst.  If the phone were an entry-level $30 unit, like Sprint’s Seek it would be one thing, but even the Seek runs smoother and the Gravity T is a hefty $80 on contract.  With phones like the MyTouch 3G and Samsung Behold II offering a plethora of more features for a mere $20 more we suggest skipping on the Gravity T in favor of a real smartphone.

Acceptable...barely

The good: I like how easy the camera operates, the LED flash is nice. The voice calls sound good and I haven't dropped any. The dialer is what you would expect and the large QWERTY slide out key pad is a nice touch. The bad: Texting is a mess. So many steps and the experience is clumsy and ugly....More
The good: I like how easy the camera operates, the LED flash is nice. The voice calls sound good and I haven't dropped any. The dialer is what you would expect and the large QWERTY slide out key pad is a nice touch. The bad: Texting is a mess. So many steps and the experience is clumsy and ugly. Accessing the contacts for anything is tedious and counter intuitive. Doesn't show the phone number alongside the contact unless you tap an icon. This is extremely frustrating although it doesn't seem like a big deal at first. You can only see a few contacts at a time and the scrolling is rough and clumsy. Hate texting on this phone despite the nice keypad. The graphics are very poor. My previous 3 year old phone was far superior. The layout is very clumsy and it's hard to find what you want quickly. Widgets are a pain to use and organize. The worst thing is that the touch screen MUST be locked when not in use. If it isn't, the phone bumps around in my purse and makes random calls. Including to my boss at home at 10:40 pm. That's a deal breaker for me, I'm getting something else. Less

I love this phone.

I just got this Gravity T and i'm loving it.Its so easy to use and when your talking on it its so clear.For me its the best phone that I'v had.

Almost perfect

I got the Touch and was excited about its feature set and clarity of call quality. However I use the Xlink bt phone switch with my phone so that I can connect my cell phone to my home wireless phones. The Touch would not maintain a connection to the xlink.

I got the Touch and was excited about its feature set and clarity of call quality. However I use the Xlink bt phone switch with my phone so that I can connect my cell phone to my home wireless phones. The Touch would not maintain a connection to the xlink. And to re-establish the link, I had to power off the Touch, delete the bluetooth device and re-find it. Totally unusable. So though I love the feature set and design of the Touch, I had to go back to my Samsung Link which reliably keeps the blue tooth connection. Less

this is the best phone u will ever get in your life!!!

this phone is the best phone ever! it has many features and the speed of its touch is amazing! this phone even has buttons and arrows so that if you dont like touching you can use the bottons. i rate this phone 9.9/10
