Samsung Exhibit 4G Review
calling quality is more that acceptable with clear and distinctive voices heard on both ends of the line – with no distortion or static being heard in the background. Producing some moderate tones with its earpiece, it’s able to make voices audible, but still requires a little more power to make it prominent. Additionally, its speakerphone is weak in tone, but at least voices are comprehendible.
Displaying an adequate amount of bars with signal strength in high coverage areas, we didn’t experience any dropped calls or major fluctuations during our testing in the greater Philadelphia region.
If you’re big into yapping away on your phone, you’ll be ecstatic to know that we’re able to get 10 hours of continuous talk time on a single charge, which is more than sufficient for some people. However, as for normal every day operation, it’s able to get by through a solid day of normal usage consisting of mostly emailing, web surfing, texting, and some light phone calls.
Looking at the big picture, one of the more alluring things about the Samsung Exhibit 4G is that it packs a ton of value for the money you’re paying. Packing features like a high-resolution display, 1GHz single-core processor, HSPA+ connectivity, Gingerbread, and a front-facing camera for video chat, it’s indeed very boastful on paper with its offerings – even though it might not excel in all areas. For most people, getting the most bang for the buck is seemingly preferred over getting consistent performance across all categories, but nonetheless, the Samsung Exhibit 4G easily fits that description. Therefore, if you don’t want to shell out $200 to experience a high-end smartphone, but still want something with good specs, then the Exhibit 4G will easily be the ideal solution to fit your needs.

The Samsung Exhibit is garbage. My roomate and I opened a new T-Mobile contract and we both chose the violet Exhibit and we have had them replaced three times in a two month period. T-Mobile refuses to let us choose different phones and we are now locked into a contract with phones we cannot even use. Stay away from the Samsung Exhibit, Samsung products, and T-Mobile all together!

I have the Samsung Exhibt, & it works just fine. It has more features then I need, & I'm still figuring out how I can use it better. I like it, & it was between the Exhibit & the LG Optimus. I feel I made the right choice, & I've had no problems. So far, so good, so what.
Also, as for staying away from Samsung products, I love them. Their flatpanel TVs are great, & so are their phones. I will have no problem going back to them.

@ . Daggerlily I guess that's what happens when dumb people use smart phones.... I've had mine for over a year now and never EVER had any problems with it other than I can't put it down because it's a really cool and super easy to use smart phone.
