Samsung Galaxy Exhibit Review
Taking a look around the interface, we instantly recognize it’s running Sammy’s TouchWiz Nature UX experience, but unlike its esteemed siblings, it lacks many of the interface’s comprehensive and flagship features – essentially limiting its similarity to just the visuals. In addition, it’s running on top of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. For what it’s worth as an entry model, the experience is sufficient enough, but don’t expect to show off any neat hand waving tricks to your friends.
Veteran users of this specific interface will notice that its core set of organizer apps are all intact, so their presentations and functions are identical to any devices in Sammy’s stable. However, due to its smaller sized display, it doesn’t make for the best typing experience with its cramped layout. Making matters worse, its sluggish performance makes it agonizing trying to speed type.
Processor and Memory:
It’s not to say that dual-cores are incapable for delivering performances that are likable, but it’s just not cutting with this smartphone. Packing along a dual-core 1GHz STE U8420 processor coupled with 1GB of RAM, the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit is plagued with an overall laggy feel.
Stuffed with 1.34GB of internal storage out of the box, it’s nothing we’d regard as an ample tally. Nevertheless, it’s comforting to find a microSD slot in tow to help complement things.
Internet and Connectivity:
Having LTE on board helps with page loads, but even despite having a fast connection, it doesn’t help with its slower page rendering. On one hand, navigational controls are responsive, but its painstakingly slow page rendering becomes a hindrance.
Armed with all the usual connectivity arsenal, its offering is pretty much the standard fanfare with basic smartphones. To be exact, it features aGPS, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.

The Nokia Lumia 520 is much much better than this device.

Samsung just can’t stop flooding the market with plastic junk

I have had this thing for ten months. This phone is a piece of garbage and the designer should be fired.
