Different people have different needs and thus while few prefer the regular touchscreen smartphones; there remain many others who opt for the QWERTY based messengers. Samsung, one of the leading handset brands of the world has often come up with powerful and amazing products and this time around it has launched the all new Samsung Gravity Smart. Today’s youth are very dependant upon their phones and experts believe that the Samsung Gravity Smart would go well with the SMS fanatics.
The best thing about the Samsung Gravity line of series is its affordability. While the previous versions of the same were feature phones, the latest Samsung Gravity Smart has been devised into an Android powered smartphone. It is aimed at those who wish to lay hands upon a sensible smartphone and at the same time do not want to do away with the joy of texting.
It is true that the Samsung Gravity Smart is a smartphone at heart and yet, there remains something very laid back about the same. The device has dimensions of about 114 x 59 x 14 mm and weighs a mere 130 g. The plastic body and the soft touch back cover are the reason why the device feels lightweight. It is true that the handset looks good but Samsung could have done a better job at the same.
The world was indeed in need of a user friendly messaging device and pleas of the masses have finally been answered by the launch of the Samsung Gravity Smart. It is one of those mid range smartphones which are easy to use and offer total functionality. The device offers 16 million colours and a slide out QWERTY keyboard (the talking point of this device). The keyboard automatically gets revealed once the device is held horizontally in the text mode. The size of the keys is decent enough and the four rows of the same help you type through your messages without any problem.
The Samsung Gravity Smart by no means can be considered a super phone like some of the other smartphones on the higher end, yet it has something very unique about itself. If you have been looking for a super sexy handset with HD camera, high resolution screen offering intense gaming options, then it would be better for you to stay away from this device. Instead, the Samsung Gravity Smart is a remarkable messenger with good networking options. Do not mistake it to be a business device as it focusses more on the fun part. The screen brightness can prove to be a letdown for many, yet it offers a decent picture quality. However, if you take the device out in bright sunlight, you would hardly get to see anything on the screen.Inspite of all this, the Samsung Gravity Smart is a decent handset to lay hands upon. Learn not to expect too much of the same and you would love every bit of it. In other words, the device is truly remarkable at the price range that it is available at.
