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.
