Once again Samsung follows the market demand with two affordable and also effective smartphones running Android OS. The phones are called Samsung Gravity SMART and Samsung Exhibit 4G. T-Mobile is bringing these two handsets to its users for less than $100.
Samsung Gravity SMART runs Android 2.2 Froyo and features also a physical QWERTY keyboard. It has a 3.2-inch touchscreen display and a 3 megapixel camera with LED flash. This phone is intended for a good messaging experience and it is equipped with Group Text and also the virtual keyboard is Swype ready. Its four-row slide out keyboard is very comfortable with its well thought design so typing should be a good experience even though in the portrait mode the virtual keyboard is too annoying to type perfectly because of the small 3.2-inch display.
With pin it notes you can keep important notes in the home screen for any necessity. On Samsung Gravity Smart you will have access over 200,000 apps in the Android Market besides the full integration with Google mobile services. This phone is very similar to the Samsung Galaxy 551 which has been a total failure in the market due to the poor marketing strategy by Samsung. Starting from the 3.2-inch display, QWERTY keyboard, Froyo OS to the poor 600MHz processor without Flash support and poor battery these two phones are very similar. The only noticeable difference is the LED flash with the camera and the Swype input.
To some users, the 4:3 aspect ratio might be another point of difference though for such a small display it is a blessing if you are going to text much using the virtual keyboard with portrait mode. In the end it is a great phone for its price and you are going to enjoy the full value of your money from this but if you are planning to buy a good device you should increase your budget a little bit.
On the other hand the Samsung Exhibit 4G is more powerful with its 1GHz processor and runs the latest Android Gingerbread OS. From the name you already know it’s 4G and so the speed is unbelievable – 21Mbps. This phone is also equipped with a 3 megapixels camera though it has another camera at the front for video chatting.
Using the fastest Internet you can enjoy on-demand channels like FOX Sports, ABC News now using the preloaded T-Mobile TV. You will also have the option to purchase or rent TV programs or movies from the Samsung Media Hub. For great connectivity and entertainment the Samsung Exhibit 4G is a great choice exceeding its price.
Both Samsung Exhibit 4G and Samsung Gravity SMART are T-Mobile exclusive phones and will be available to only the T-Mobile customers around the month of June.
