Samsung Exhibit 4G review: Droid on display
15 August 2011
Conclusion: After spending a good amount of quality time with the Samsung Exhibit 4G, we really couldn’t find much to frown at. The device was up for all the tasks we threw at it and, while not being a benchmark monster, we are quite confident it won’t disappoint you either. Currently, the Samsung Exhibit 4G can be purchased from T-Mobile for $99.99 with a contract, or $299.99 without one.
Excerpt: The Samsung Exhibit 4G would have, at one point, been considered a higher end smartphone. But with the constant technological advances, it seems the Exhibit has been pushed into the mid tier market. Even after being pushed down, does it exhibit the characteristics...
Summary: The Samsung Exhibit 4G runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), standard 1GHz processor, since this is a budget-priced phone you get a 3-megapixel camera but at least it has a flash and camcorder, as well as a front-facing camera with video chat pre-installed. Capable of T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ mobile Internet speeds, downloading & streaming content should be a breeze.
Pros: Good value for the money, HSPA+ enabled, Clear calling quality
Cons: Sluggish performance with web browsing, Shoots some lackluster photos & videos, Conventional design
Summary: The Samsung Exhibit 4G is one of the best Android phones under 100 bucks. For $79.99, this Android device offers zippy data performance over T-Mobile's HSPA+ network along with a good camera and long battery life. Heavy texters will prefer the physical keyboard on the identically priced Sidekick 4G, and those looking for a larger screen and more power will want to check out the $199 HTC Sensation.
Pros: Runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread Fast 4G download speeds, Wi-Fi Calling Camera takes clear vivid pictures, Long battery life
Cons: Small keyboard makes typing difficult, Design a bit bland
Conclusion: The Samsung Exhibit 4G comes in right where you'd expect it to, much better than the Gravity Smart or the terrible Samsung Dart but not quite as nice as something like the Galaxy S 4G. With above average performance as well as the latest Android 2.3 OS and a great 3.5" screen it really is what I'd consider right around the top of the mid-range list.
Conclusion: If you're on a budget and want an Android phone with solid features, the Samsung Exhibit 4G is an excellent choice. With 4G, a high resolution display and good CPU power, the Exhibit can handle most tasks well. It lacks the flashier display technology found on higher end phones, and you're giving up some camera resolution, but for $99 with contract and $299 without contract, that's OK by us.
Pros: Low price with higher end features like 4G, fast CPU and high res display.
Cons: No Super AMOLED Plus display (can't have everything at this price).
Samsung Exhibit 4G and Gravity Smart – T-Mobile’s new budget-friendly Android phones

Conclusion: Other than that, the phones are pretty good for budget and family friendly devices, and if you’re switching to a smartphone or buying one for your children/parents/grandparents, either of them would make a great choice.
