Review: Samsung Gravity Smart
The Gravity Smart runs the exact same system software as the Samsung Dart, which Phone Scoop recently reviewed — albeit with some tweaks. It uses a less annoying variant of TouchWiz paired with Android 2.2.2 Froyo.
There are five home screen panels loaded out of the box, but the Gravity Smart supports up to seven of them if you wish. Adding/deleting them is a breeze. Samsung has placed four permanent apps in a dock at the bottom of the home screen panels: Phone, Contacts, Messages, and Menu. The home screen panels can, of course, be customized with user apps, shortcuts and widgets.
The main menu is broken down into separate screens, each of which holds 16 apps. Swipe sideways (rather than up-and-down) to access more apps.

The notification shade includes shortcuts for turning off the Gravity Smart's various radios (such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth) to save power, as well as a quick "silence" key, and a screen rotation control button. The options menu and other device settings work the same as they do on any other Android phones.
Speed-wise, the Gravity Smart performed with gusto. It never displayed a tendency to slow down or stutter. Applications opened in a snap, and it never felt bogged down.
