The Samsung Gravity brand has changed quite a bit since its debut in 2008 as a austere messaging phone for T-Mobile. As additional incarnations came along, the Gravity handset improved–the Gravity 2 added3G and GPS, while the Gravity 3 has a vaguely more ergonomic point. The Gravity T, or the Gravity Touch, is the latest recovery of the Gravity line, and as its name suggests, it now has a touch cover. This allows it a few nice touches like a customizable home cover along with gesture-based shortcuts. Aside from that, it has many of the same facial appearance as its other Gravity cousins–a 2.0-megapixel camera, GPS, a music player, and more. The Samsung Gravity T is available for $74.99 with a new two-year benefit contract from T-Mobile.
The Samsung Gravity T has a akin point to other Samsung touch-cover courier phones, like the Samsung Messager Touch for model. Measuring 4.29 inches long by 2.23 inches wide by 0.59 inch thick, the Gravity T has a wide oval form factor, with a vaguely curved back for a more comfortable feel in the hand. This does mean it rocks ever so vaguely when it’s resting on a flat surface, but we didn’t find that to be a problem. At 4.23 ounces, the Gravity T is also not too heavy, and would fit straightforwardly in a large sack or purse.
The Gravity T has a 2.8-inch resistive touch cover, which we found quite pleasing to the eye. It has 262,000 sign and a 240 x 320 pixel pledge, and the phone takes subsidy of that with peculiar and detailed menu icons. You can change the font type, the brightness, the backlight time, and the salutation message on the home cover. Read more
