Samsung Galaxy Exhibit Review
Introduction:

Surprise, surprise! Another year, another entry-level Samsung handset for T-Mobile bearing the Exhibit moniker. With this particular third device, however, Samsung decided to also include it into its Galaxy series – so we’re now presented with the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit. Basic smartphones don’t get enough love amongst other things, but let’s hope that’s not going to be the case here.

The package contains:

  • microUSB cable
  • Wall Charger
  • Quick User Guide
  • Important Safety and Handling Information

Design:

Boring. That’s all we can say about this one, seeing that there’s nothing particularly compelling with its design. Sure, we like that it’s compact and lightweight, but when it’s construction is flimsy and has that distinct cheap feel with its plastic casing, it’s pretty much the epitome of something we’d expect from the entry-level segment.

Following in tandem to the existing line of Galaxy devices, the Galaxy Exhibit also sports an oval shaped home button that’s surrounded by capacitive menu and back keys. Around its trim, we spot its 3.5mm headset jack, volume controls, microphone, microUSB port, and microSD card slot.



When it comes to cameras, there’s a VGA 0.3-megapixel one in the front, and a 5-megapixel auto-focus snapper with an LED flash in the rear – both of which are recognized as being average in the category. Inside, it’s packing along a 1500 mAh battery and standard sized SIM slot.



Display:

Its relatively small figure is mostly attributed to its 3.8-inch 480 x 800 (WVGA) TFT display. Honestly, there’s nothing too pretty with this one, since it’s obvious even from a cursory look that it’s a low quality display on here. In fact, its viewing angles are so weak that it distorts colors and prevents us from properly viewing whatever is on screen – even from a straight angle. Moreover, it doesn’t help when its color reproduction is leaning towards the bland and washed out side.

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

it's a good 4g phone for someone who don't want to spend money who just need to have phone navigation and browsing is good but you will always face memory problems and battery drains fast
