Samsung Gravity Q Review

Introduction


Smartphones, smartphones, smartphones, that’s what it seems like what we’re bombarded with all the time. As much as they provide a ton of features, some people just prefer the simple things – and that’s where the Samsung Gravity Q comes to mind. Being a quick messaging device, it means that it doesn’t have as many of the complexities of today’s smartphones. However, are the compromises just too much to swallow?

The package contains:

  • microUSB cable
  • Wall Charger
  • Quick User Guide
  • Important Safety and Handling Information

Design


There’s nothing particularly pretty here folks, as the Gravity Q looks and feels like the cheapo smartphones that tend to occupy the bottom of the barrel from Sammy’s camp. Indeed, its design is boring and lacks any pleasant cues, but at least it exhibits a bit of sturdiness with its all-plastic construction. We’ll give it that it’s compact to hold in the hand.

Taking a quick tour around the body of the handset, we’re presented with all the usual ports and buttons. For a quick messaging device and all, it’s great to find a microSD card slot on board with this. In the rear, it’s sporting a fixed focused 2-megapixel camera and a removable 1000 mAh battery.




Display


Ouch! Our eyes writhe in pain looking at the low quality display on the Samsung Gravity Q. To be honest though, it’s something we expect, seeing that it’s a 3-inch 240 x 320 (QVGA) TFT touchscreen on board here, which is sorely lacking in the details. At the same time, its bland color reproduction doesn’t help either, as it easily washes out when it’s tilted slightly offset. Initially, we thought it was going to be a resistive screen, but surprisingly enough, it’s a capacitive one.



Keyboard


Thankfully, there’s a snappy feel when the landscape keyboard is opened up to reveal its 4-row layout. The feel isn’t particularly great, since buttons are nearly flush and the spacing between them is minimal, but after a bit of patience of practice, we’re able to knock out a few sentences with few issues.

"the Gravity Q is powered by a 416MHz single-core processor with 128GB of RAM". Page 2 "Interface and Functionality". Is this real? holy crap. Galaxy Note 3 is in shame in terms or ram!

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.

Wot? You just went ahead of John in the insanity metre. Do you even know what RAM is?? I\'m seriously starting to doubt some of the people here.

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!

Are you trying to punish your niece? ;)

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.
