The Samsung Gravity 3 feels like a smartphone with less advanced features

from Top Ten Reviews
Even though this cellular device lacks touchscreen capabilities, the numerical keypad and full QWERTY keyboard make navigation through this device simple. This cell phone offers several multimedia features such as a 2MP camera, music player, video streaming and internet capabilities that make this device ideal for entertainment. The adequate battery life and memory make the Samsung Gravity 3 an ideal device for individuals who just can’t quite get enough of their cell phone... Full review

It's overall a great phone

Great for texting, not great for multi media, but if you are using it for only talking and texting it's an awesome phone for you; full qwerty keyboard and few dropped calls

I like this phone because it has a great QWERTY keyboard,that is great for texting (even though we've seen it before).

It is overall a great phone, not always the best, and the music player annoys me but it is great for texting and i have had only 1 dropped call

Total waste of money.

Samsung has the worst customer service I have ever come across. I mistakenly purchased a Samsung mobile phone and have regretted it since day 1. I cant wait till my contract is over. It seems like the folks at Samsung have it back word's, most of the important features are hidden, at least 3 clicks... More
Samsung has the worst customer service I have ever come across. I mistakenly purchased a Samsung mobile phone and have regretted it since day 1. I cant wait till my contract is over. It seems like the folks at Samsung have it back word's, most of the important features are hidden, at least 3 clicks away. The keyboard is user unfriendly, the signal strength disappears with the least bit of interfearence. I could go on and on. Go to another brand, Samsung has to learn to pull up their socks. Less

Get's The Job Done

Great phone; satisfies my needs. Easy transfer between phone and computer. Good quality photos. Sturdy phone; can resist damage. Overall, a great cell phone for the moderate user.
