Excerpt: Several budget cell phones have the look and feel of a smartphone. These cellular devices often come with outstanding multimedia features, access to the internet, Bluetooth capabilities and full QWERTY keyboards. The Samsung Gravity 3 is a cell phone with each of these features and an added bonus: a low price tag.
Pros: This cell phone provides 400 hours of standby time on a single battery charge.
Cons: There are no touchscreen capabilities on the Samsung Gravity 3.
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
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
Conclusion: In all the four latest mobile phones (mentioned in the intro section) that were announced in June 2010, there is one common aspect – the camera feature. All these handsets come loaded with a 2 mega pixel camera. The 2 MP camera of T479 Gravity 3 boasts a resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels and it is capable of recording video shots also. There is no secondary camera in the mobile phone for video calling.
Pros: 3G HSDPA, Up to 16 GB memory support, QWERTY Keyboard
