Samsung Gravity Q Review

Interface and Functionality


Seriously, it feels like we’re in a time warp checking out the Samsung Gravity Q, mainly because its software harkens back to the good old days before smartphones. It really reminds us of the early days of TouchWiz, when it mainly consisted of being given access to widgets that could be placed on the homescreen. On one hand, it’s relatively simple to operate, but it’s just so sluggish navigating around. Furthermore, you won’t find as much diversity here, as it lacks any sort of apps ecosystem.

Crazy to say, there’s a basic email client in tow here, which works decently, but don’t expect anything serious like the Gmail experience with Android. For a device aimed for a younger audience, it’s rather perplexing to know that there are no social networking apps – making it a strict messaging-only device.

Processor and Memory


It obviously doesn’t matter what’s ticking inside of this, just because it performs very slowly – even with some basic stuff! Anyway, the Gravity Q is powered by a 416MHz single-core processor with 128MB of RAM, hardware that’s hardly imposing to say the least.

Armed with 256MB of ROM, the capacity can be supplemented by its microSD slot, which accepts cards up to 32GB in size.

Internet and Connectivity


Ugh! You’ll want to stay far away from accessing the handset’s web browser, mainly due to the fact that it’s pointless to use with complex sites. First, it takes forever to load them. Secondly, navigational controls are so delayed that the experience simply becomes a test in futility.

Sorry folks, this GSM based handset only boasts 3G connectivity. Beyond that, its connectivity features consists of only aGPS and Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR.

Most high end phones have 32GB RAM, but his little beast has 128GB of RAM. Worth the money. Extend it with 32GB SD card and you got 160GB. Not even Iphones can match that storage capacity.

You just went ahead of John in the insanity metre.

i'm so getting this for my 9 year old niece. it's perfect for her. Easy to use and cheap. You can't seriously compare this phone to the fladships of today. Its aimed at a different target market.

9 year old kids are not dumb, nowadays... for the same price or just some bucks more you can get an android phone and your kid will be able to install at least some games!

Problem is; With all the scroll and type lag on that 412MHz CPU the phone is practically useless.

It should have been 416 GHz processor with 128 GB RAM. Must be able to run all the games available, even for PC! :P

Phonearena just put up this review to try and trick people into thinking they aren\'t completely samsung lovers. They know damn well users on this site won\'t buy a phone like this.

Regardless of whether or not there was a typo regarding the RAM, it takes a special kind of ignorance to think something like this could have 64 times the amount of ANYTHING as the company's flagship.
