Samsung Exhibit 2

wolverinexmen9 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

My mother and my brother both own this phone. I bought it for them because it was and still is the best pre-paid budget phone there is. With 4gb installed you don't have to worry about how many apps you download. Doesn't lag too much, only when too many apps are running at the same time. Keyboard should be redesigned. Keyboard plus screen size doesn't work with big fingers even though there is swype. Only a 3mp camera with flash and auto focus and a 0.3mp front facing camera, so not too bad. Battery life can last about 2 days. Software is on 2.3.6. Doesn't have auto brightness which kinda sucks but you can use the power control widget. For the cheap price, this is the best low end android phone.

Samsung Exhibit II 4G: Better then the competition...

Birds has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

At two hundred dollars, this phone has no competition. It is the best phone in it's category. In my experience with the phone, it has zippy performance. I'm a little underwhelmed by it's build quality. It is plastic-y and recycled from the Samsung Galaxy W but what can you expect? Looking at the positives, the device is light weight and streamlined. Reception is impressive in the Southwest Georgia region. Here in the boondocks, I still managed to get four bars of coverage even when I'm miles away from the center of town. Call quality for its price is pristine and clear. It sounds a little hallow but nothing to deter the purchase. The browsing on this device is speedy thanks to the HSPA+ and the 1GHz processor on-board. Pinch to zoom is quite responsive as well as flash playback. However, heavily flashed websites will boggle the device somewhat but it is miles ahead of the competition. The multimedia side of things is quite good. I loaded up Avatar the extended addition and it played the entire 3 hour long movie without a hitch. However the battery was drained to about 20% when done. The camera is my only real gripe with the phone. A comparable device- the ZTE Warp- has a 5 megapixel camera and is the same price. But this device has a 3 megapixel camera. The detail is ok, but noise handling fails. The contrast is bad and the colors are acurate but they are cooler then I'd like. But the camera is still acceptable for 4x6 printouts. The 1Ghz processor gets the job done. This device...

The little Samsung that Could!!!...........do everything needed!

G2Noobin has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

Have you ever caught yourself saying i wish i had a phone that wouldn't cost me an arm and a leg, a phone that i dont always have to worry about losing, a phone that can play most good games out there. A do it all phone that i can buy, OFF-contract, so i can maybe unlock and use anywhere. Look no further. This phone is what the blackberry pearl was for texting, is for android and smartphones in general. Has a spunky little 1ghz processor. same as the first nexus and the first galaxy... clock speed mind you, has an MP3 player, (why go buy another one) has a Scheduler, has free games galore, has an iphone 3g esque screen, which is beautiful, great, if not good battery life, wifi, wifi hotspot, other nifty items i haven't quite cared for.
Definity this phone is like the "Door"...... i don't know which one, but this phone will open it....

  • Just really feels like a phone, kinda like what the blackberry pearl was for texting

tagzard has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

Well the phone has very little available ram (356 mb available to you) Also this has a very crap camera. Don't buy this phone. Unless you don't mind allot of slowdowns and plenty of lagging moments. It has a nice build and a very nice screen. But it has too little available ram too you. Go buy yourself the blaze 4g instead of this.

One of the best No-Contract phones to pick up...

Italia1012 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

This is probably one of the best no-contract phones you can pick up... Inside it features a 1GHz thats cleans up pretty well, but you may notice some lag once in a while, it also has a good front facing camera for video chats... But when going outside with phone, you won't be happy of its poor viewing angles, you won't be able to see anything in the sunlight at all. The 3.2 MP camera with flash is not bad, but some images may have a slight tone of blue to it.. Overall, if you are looking for a good No-Contract phone with excellent battery, Good specs and 4G, this is the phone for you!

Samsung Exhibit II 4G Review From New User!

bignadz has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

Great Phone For The Price. Android Gingerbread Included. (works great) Wonderful Screen. Battery Life On the Low Side & So Is Camera Quality. Fast Processor, weak amount of RAM. Uninstallable Apps Run For No Reason. If You Know How To Tweak It. Then This Phone Would Be Amazing! only reason it lags is the running programs sometimes.

Build quality 10/10 Plastic Screen Is More Scratch Resistant then glass. and looks just as great. dropped it a few times... no problems what so ever
Reception 10/10
Call quality 10/10 Dynamic Noise Suppression From Audience Built In. Reduces Background Noise From Both Ends Of The Call.
Internet 9/10 wifi built in. GPS, Facebook.. the Whole nine yards
Multimedia 8/10 works good just lags a little bit from thoes pesky background built in un-install-able programs. (Slacker, Multi-media hub, t-mobile apps ect. ect.)
Camera 7/10 Only 3 MPG Camera. But The Screen Makes Up For It By It's 252ppi density, which makes it very attractive and vibrant. it has a Front Facing Camera Also.(1MP)
UI speed 8/10 The Low Amount Of RAM (512MB) (But 352MB After The Android Processor takes it away) It Seems To Fight With The High Powered Processor (1GHz') so it lags slightly alot of the time, recommend getting a App Killer that auto kills. the background uninstallable apps make it lag
Everyday usage 9/10 works great.
Text input 10/10 with the right keyboard app, this phone rocks!
Display 10/10 Beautiful Resolution. (252ppi Density) Very Clear. Makes Up For The Low Res Camera.
Battery 5/10 Needs Charging Daily. i get about 5 hours of usage before it's dead. 4 hours of heavy use. 12+ hours of non use.(This phone is new) Battery Kinda Sucks. But It's Tolerable just gotta have your charger everywhere lol


  • Beautiful Screen
  • Android Gingerbread Platform (2.3.4)
  • 4G Capable. wi-fi internet
  • Camera on Front & Back, wi-fi calling, video calling


  • Camera & Battery Are Medium to low Quality
  • Lags A Little Bit.
