Samsung Gravity TXT Review
Emitting weak tones through the earpiece, it’s rather difficult in distinctively making out words – despite hearing clear and noise-free voices through it. Conversely, our callers are dealt with their own challenge in deciphering hollow voices on their end of the line. Moreover, voices are muffled in tone with a hint of echoing when using the speakerphone.

Even though we didn’t experience any dropped phone calls during our testing, we experienced a few instances of the handset fluctuating in signal strength in high coverage areas within the greater Philadelphia region.

If you love to talk, then you’ll be impressed by the immaculate battery life of the handset since we’re able to get well over 10 hours of talk time on a single charge – versus the 6.5 hours rated by the manufacturer. Using the handset normally, it’s able to give well over two days of usage.


Conclusion:

When we hear something priced at $10 on-contract, we might be reluctant in being a bit more harsh with its performance, but in the case of the Samsung Gravity TXT, we can’t get our mind off its abysmal experience. For a messaging oriented device, it already fails to even hit the mark loosely in that specific category due to the annoyances we find with its keyboard and optical joystick. Confining itself even more to an untimely demise, there are just way too many loose ends with this $10 phone that would make us drop it in a heartbeat in favor of something else – maybe some sort of entry-level smartphone. Honestly, this handset is one of the reasons why feature phones are increasingly becoming less relevant.
