The good: The Samsung Gravity Q has a simple design that’s easy to use and a spacious, comfortable keyboard.

The bad: The Gravity Q has a small, dark display and supports only 3G data. Call quality was variable, with a speakerphone that’s almost unusable.

The Samsung Gravity Q is one answer for anyone wondering where can they find a cell phone with a real keyboard. As a simple feature phone, it isn’t the best answer, but it bravely carries on the (dying) tradition of slider handsets with physical keys.

In fact, the keyboard is the best thing about the Gravity Q and the only reason to buy it. That’s because if you took the keyboard away, you’d have only the most basic features, a dim display, and variable call quality, with 3G data.
