Summary: The phone was good for texting and talking but did have less signal reception than my husbands old RAZR. then after 14 months it suddenly quit - tried a new battery but that didn't help. Figure after a year or so it will just be a throwaway.
Excerpt: Okay, i got it for free, but I paid for the plan! Prosbattery lifekeyboarddurabilityreception (rarely drop calls)full keyboard Cons:Slow, laggy. I press a button and have to wait a second for it to load. Not much in absolute terms, but relatively speaking, if i want to send a text, there are like 4 buttons to go through (unlock, menu, send message, reply) other features suck volume not that loud keyboard is kinda difficult as well.
Summary: We purchased this phone specifically for its qwerty keyboard, for texting purposes. The keyboard is nice but pressing a key often gives either no response or a double response. We returned it and purchased another type of phone.
Excerpt: As far as the camera is concerned, It was only 2mp which was absolutely horrible. It was so horrible that I didn’t even use the camera much. For T-Mobile this phone was considered more of a shame. It’s not one of their better phones and personally for the price I think it lived up to it’s expectations. I only paid around $80 for this phone so I’m not shocked that it didn’t live up to other popular phones.
Way too expensive for an SMS phone, not at all worth the price.

Summary: The Gravity 2 is messaging phone, and as such has practically no features. The email "feature" is atrocious and hardly works. The notifications are spouratic at best. The camera is dismal. The screen is pathetic. The slide out keyboard has flat buttons which only respond when Hulk-smashed.
Excerpt: Had this phone for about 6 months and only dropped it a few times. One day the screen completely blacked out when I opened the keyboard and soon the screen wouldn't turn on at all. Had to get a refurbished one but turned out I had to get a Grav3, sucks as well, screen broke after 3 months. Samsung needs to get its s*** together & make a better phone!
Summary: While the original Gravity was a decent phone, the Gravity 2 seems to be a giant step backwards. You do get a better camera and internet access, but the keyboard is considerably worse. Like the Gravity, you can't change the text message noise beyond the phones 5 presets. Ring options remain the same, however if you've turned on text message repeat ring the phone will also keep ringing for non text message events such as voice mails.
Summary: The first time that I bought this phone, it was broken by the end of the week, the LCD screen had cracked. I went ahead and got another one, first few months, the phone was awesome, however, now the vibrate seldom works and the screen constantly goes blank. When there is any amount of humidity, the phone will not work, the screen goes blank and if you turn the phone off, it usually will not turn back on for a couple of days, I tried using a different battery and still...
Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Realistic color
Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations, poor durability
