Samsung Gravity T Review

Performance and Conclusion:

Call quality was good on the Gravity T on both ends.  Callers said we were clear with no real problems, though they said we were a bit tinny.  They rated us 8/10 and we would say the same for our end.  Samsung claims the Gravity T is capable of 6 hours of talk time and 16 days of standby, both more than adequate for the average user.  Given its poor web performance we don’t expect many people will be draining the battery surfing the internet.

The concept behind the Samsung Gravity T is good enough, but the execution is poor.  The TouchWiz UI simply can’t keep up on the Gravity T, even while it works well on similar devices like AT&T’s Samsung Sunburst.  If the phone were an entry-level $30 unit, like Sprint’s Seek it would be one thing, but even the Seek runs smoother and the Gravity T is a hefty $80 on contract.  With phones like the MyTouch 3G and Samsung Behold II offering a plethora of more features for a mere $20 more we suggest skipping on the Gravity T in favor of a real smartphone.

Samsung Gravity T Video Review:


  • Nice build quality
  • Above average phonebook
  • Decent camera performance


  • TouchWiz interface is gimped due to memory constraints
  • Keyboard doesn’t have very good feel
  • Web browser isn’t very usable
  • High price for what you get

"Cons: high price for what you get" then you scroll down a few inches and see that you can get it for free. Nice.

Through indirect retail sellers, you can get it for free. Through T-Mobile, you'll have to pay $80. Wirefly, LetsTalk, Radioshack, Best Buy Mobile, etc. etc... they all offer phones at lower prices. Many free, even smartphones. However, the official price from the carrier is $80.

My sister got this phone last week. Its not horrible but its not great either. I recommended to her (and anyone else who gets this phone) to install Opera Mini 5 on the phone. The stock browser is trash.

i think this phone is nice enough for what i use, which is just calling and texting. of course this isn't a smartphone so don't expect it to be mind blowing.

I hate this phone!!!!! It is the worst phone I've ever had. I would have returned it within the 30 day trial but my daughter had scratched the screen trying to get the touch screen to work. It freezes up, the touch screen is not accurate, it powers off on it's own and the camera doesn't alway close on it's own, I've had to take the battery out to turn it off. I do not reccomend. HORRIBLE PHONE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Junk! Querty keyboard is great but that's about it. The touch screen has never been accurate and now does not work at all. Luckily I have it insured and TMobile is replacing it with the Samsung Comet....we'll see how that goes. I do not recommend the Gravity T at all!!!!
