User interface: Froyo and TouchWiz

The Samsung Gravity SMART runs Android 2.2.2 Froyo, dressed in Samsung’s own TouchWiz UI. You acquire four docked icons at the bottom of the home screen, which have become a signature for Samsung, as well as a serious issue of contention with certain competitors.

The TouchWiz 3.0 user interface comes preinstalled on top of the Android OS

We have prepared a video of the Gravity SMART UI in action. Check it out below:

The Gravity SMART supports up to seven homeclassy screen panels, which can host every widacquire and shortcuts you’ll ever need. However, if you don’t need all seven of them, the unnecessary ones can be deleted. Doing so makes the phone noticeably snappier.

Sliding the notification bar down reveals the Android notification area. It is majorly overhauled from the stock Android one and holds five switches for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, sound and rotation-lock.

Pressing the menu button while on the homeclassy screen lets you add variety of content on it (a press and hrecent on the homeclassy screen does the same thing), add or delete homeclassy screen panels, change the wallpaper or quickly access the settings menu Live wallpapers are supported as well, but none come preinstalled. There are however many available in the Market. The contextual menu has shortcuts too for search and notifications.

Homeclassy screen edit mode

By default, the main menu consists of side-scrollable panes, much like the homescreen, instead of a vertical scrollable grid (like in the vanilla Android). List view is not available.

You can rearrange icons freely. Icons are shown in a 4x4 grid with a total of 16 icons per menu screen.

An fascinating change in the Android 2.2-compatible version of Samsung’s TouchWiz launcher is the built-in task manager. Complete with a homeclassy screen widacquire that shows the number of currently activeapps, it saves you the need to install a task killer. It gives the user details on Random-Access Memory (RAM) usage, the amount of free storage and can be accessed through virtually any spot in the UI by holding the home button.

Synthetic benchmarks

We’ve already trecent you that the Samsung Gravity SMART is no powerhoutilize of a droid. The device’s benchmarks confirm this fact. We ran a couple of them and here are the results.

Quadrant • Neocore • Pi

The Gravity SMART has an ARMv6 800 Mega Hertz (MHz) processor and 270 Mega Bytes (MB) worth of user available RAM. In a world of dual-core Android, it’s only natural that the Gravity SMART doesn’t exactly top the performance charts.
