  • Summary: The Samsung Gravity 3's full QWERTY keyboard and messaging features are enough to satisfy most heavy communicators, with other advanced features icing the cake.

Review of Samsung Gravity 3 SGH-t479

Testfreaks blog
28 July 2010
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Gravity 3 is a phone for those that enjoy messaging and being social. The keyboard is very nice to type on, the keys are large and they’re spaced well. It’s a messaging centric phone but it’s not one for kids, at it’s heart lies decent business email capabilities. The network is T-Mobile and for the most part it works well, though I did have some issues with web browsing, the browser itself might be what’s to blame as I’ve never had any issues before like...
  • Pros: Nice design, Nice keyboard, Phone itself feel well made, Good battery life, Fast and responsive
  • Cons: Issues with web browsing, Some might think the phone is too big and heavy, No Wi-Fi

Samsung Gravity 3 Review

Phone Arena
15 July 2010
  • Conclusion: Call quality was so-so with the Samsung Gravity 3 .  Callers complained that we sounded overly nasally and as if we were in a cave.  They could distinctly hear a lot of background noise as well.  To us they sounded a bit quiet and the audio was very thin, though we didn’t have any real issues understanding what was being said.  Battery life is rated at 6 hours of talk time and over 16 days of standby which should be more than plenty.
  • Pros: Good size, Quick UI performance
  • Cons: Questionable call quality, Keyboard could be better, Camera is not on par with other comparable Samsung units, Poor web experience

There is no secondary camera in the mobile phone for video calling.
