Samsung Exhibit 4G, Gravity SMART Pricing Revealed

With just two days before the launch of the Samsung Exhibit 4G and Samsung Gravity SMART launch we thought you just might be interested to know how much each of the newest Android devices on T-Mobile will cost you. The Samsung Exhibit 4G will come in at $79.99 after a $50 mail in rebate on a two year contract. The Samsung Gravity SMART will come in a little cheaper at $69.99 after a $50 mail in rebate. Both the Exhibit 4G and Gravity SMART are excellently priced as introductory Android phones especially the Exhibit 4G which offers up 21Mbps HSPA+ speeds at a low price. Any takes on these devices? Both devices will arrive on Wednesday, June 22nd.

          Don’t know what to tell you, not sure what difference it would have made if I reposted them either.

    “The Samsung Gravity™ SMART is not just a phone; it’s an
    entertainment powerhouse. Under the hood, you get a crazy-fast 600MHz
    processor for faster and smoother streaming, downloading, playing and
    gaming. It comes pre-loaded with some of your favorite games – Uno,
    Tetris and Bejeweled 2. If you’d rather create your own fun, you’ll have
    our 3MP camera and camcorder, with easy touchscreen access to your
    favorite photo management apps including Flickr, Kodak, Snapfish and
    Photobucket (pre-loaded).”

    Lol, love that..”crazy-fast 600mhz processor”. It would be a very nice prepaid android phone

      That Smart is a really basic phone.  If I was in the market for an “introductory” smartphone, I’d spend the extra $10 and get the Exhibit.  Am I missing something here, why anyone would opt to get the Smart, with specs as you describe, compared to the Exhibit:

      “The Samsung Exhibit 4G comes to market with Android 2.3 installed and a 1GHz Hummingbird processor under the hood. It has 3.7″ AMOLED display with resolution of 480×800 pixels. The handset features a VGA front-facing camera while the shooter on back is 3MP.   4G connectivity is accomplished through T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network.”

      For that price, IMHO this is a pretty awesome phone, especially compared to the Smart, which ain’t too smart a buy, for reasons you point out.

        The slide out keyboard is probably the only reason to get that phone.  Its side how the mid-range exhibit would be the high end phone a few months ago.  I’m still sad that the $80 phone pretty much is the equivalent $200 G2.

        This time next year, the midrange phone will probably be sporting the specs of the Sensation and the new phone will probably be some 1.8 Ghz quad core beast sporting a screen with 720p resolution.

    Can 600mhz even handle froyo?

      Yeah like a charm.

      yeah LG Optimus T works like a charm

      also FYI Gravity Smart runs an 800mhz cpu not 600

      It also depends on how much the manufacturer optimizes the code for the phone. 

      The MyTouch 3G Slide ran 2.2 with Sense(Espresso) no problem. One of the snappiest phone EVER. 

      Only remembered it was a 600 MHz CPU when playing games.

      I have the Optimus T (now one of my emergency backup phones, albeit I should sell it on eBay for a quick $100 rather than it sitting in a drawer).

      Although the Optimus T has Android 2.2 (FroYo) its limitation is it does NOT have flash support, meaning no playing streamed video on websites.  That’s a severe limitation, IMHO.  Matter of fact, when I was hurriedly (and apparently carelessly) looking for a cheap Android phone to tide me over until my next superphone, had I known the Optimus T did not play Adobe Flash, I would have passed on the phone.

      However, if Flash is not important to the user, these entry level Android phones are superb. (In my experience, however, people new to smartphones and the Internet like being able to access flash files on the Net, that is, other than simply playing YouTube files on a special player.)

      • Jim

        Interesting info… why can’t the Optimus T play flash?

        How can you tell when buying a smartphone if it can play flash?

        Without flash, you might as well buy an old iCrap.

        Just watch your porm elsewhere when you are using the optimus T.  Problem solved.

    That table mentions pricing changes on quite a few phones.  Anything significant?

    Why is the G2 up there?

    • Girth Brooks

      Because the 18-21 month price (Early Plus) dropped.

  • Girth Brooks

    $10 difference between the Gravity Smart and Exhibit?  Who wouldn’t pay $10 more for a bigger screen, bigger processor, a front-facing camera, and 2.3 instead of 2.2 on the Gravity Smart.

    Honestly, the Gravity Dumb should be free.

    • Anonymous

      Some people prefer the keyboard over all touchscreen.

      I did, until I got a Vibrant.

      The processor is faster, not bigger. And you’d be surprised how many people know about 2.3 to begin with. Should be more around $39.99 or so.

      • Girth Brooks

        No it’s bigger.  It’s 1ghz on the Exhibit and either 600 or 800 mhz on the Gravity

        • Anonymous

          Yes, thats a measure of speed.

          The higher the frequency, the faster the processor.

          Please know what you’re talking about before you start to.

          I bet 1.2Ghz Dual Core processors are HUMONGOUS compared to the one inside the Gravity!!

    I think the Gravity SMART is going to be a great option for many people.  Not everyone needs an Android powerhouse, and I for one am glad to see a new QWERTY slider in such a small package.  The price is set just right, the same price I might add that the original Gravity T launched at.  As for the Exhibit 4G, I think its an awesome phone for the price.  It performs on par with the Galaxy S 4G when it comes to internet speed and Quadrant scores, and even includes a camera flash.  Too bad Samsung beat the poor phone with an ugly stick and decided to put it on Exhibition.

      Same thoughts here.

      Great phone under the hood. But above it? Yuck.

    Yeah I seen it last night and just watched the video.  That phone look amazing from its build all the way to it’s specs and I couldn’t imagine you not goin for it @423ab555eb22e7187a30170dccd9811f:disqus .  If I dropped Android today then that would be my only other choice.
