The Samsung Gravity dropped our way this week, and we had a chance to put it through its paces.

As we referenced in an earlier blog post, the Gravity reminds us a lot of the Samsung Rant, and even more so of the LG Rumor. Indeed, it even has a similar feature set to the Rumor. Like those other phones, the Gravity has a candy bar shape when closed, but has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard for easier texting. It doesn't have 3G or GPS, but it does have a pretty basic music player and the camera takes OK photos.

Even better, the Gravity is one of the cheapest messaging phones around at only $50 with a two-year service agreement and mail-in rebate from T-Mobile. So check out our gallery and read our review of the Samsung Gravity for the why this is a good choice for a budget-minded messaging fanatic.
