Samsung's Gravity cell phone line has kept many people texting happily for several years now. The latest Samsung Gravity TXT, an update of the Editors' Choice-winning Gravity 3 (4 stars), brings the price down to just $19.99. It also trades the Gravity 3's funky staggered keyboard layout for a more conventional, four-row design, and adds the standard-size headphone jack it always needed. That said, while the Gravity TXT has plenty of features, several noticeable flaws temper our enthusiasm. Design, Call Quality, and AppsThe Gravity TXT measures 4.4 by 2.1 by 0.6 inches (HWD) and weighs four ounces. It's three tenths of an inch shorter and three tenths of an ounce lighter than the Gravity 3. The Gravity TXT comes in a dark gray with an emerald metallic accent band around the edge. The 2.4-inch, 240-by-320-pixel screen is about average for the class, in terms of sharpness, color vibrancy, and brightness. The slide-out, four-row QWERTY keyboard features slightly raised, rubbery keys that are stiff but well separated; the feel is an acquired taste. Backlighting is even on both the numeric and QWERTY keypads. I wish Samsung would have left the older five-way control pad alone; instead, the Gravity TXT now has a finicky trackpad, which didn't always register my finger swipes.
Samsung’s Gravity line has exploded in the last year to encompass a wide array of handset categories, thanks partly to the introduction of the Android platform to the family, but it appears that it’s going back to its roots for their latest incarnation. Sporting an on-contract price of only $9.99, the Samsung Gravity TXT continues the trend as being a socially connected messaging device that’s aimed for the younger generation. However, as we continue to see more smartphones intruding on space once held tightly by feature phones, the Samsung Gravity TXT will really need to hit it big in order to keep afloat.The package contains:When you think of downright cheap phones, the Samsung Gravity TXT easily comes to mind as it sports one uninspiring design that’s downright forgettable. Not only do we despise its cheap feeling plastic exterior, but its shabby construction doesn’t leave an impression that it’ll last that long and withstand the everyday grind of messaging buffs. Sure it’s lightweight (3.95 oz) and not overly bulky (0.55” thick), but we can’t erase the fact that it’s so darn ugly looking.
