Review: Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate for AT&T
The calling and contacts applications on the Exhilarate work identically to most other Gingerbread phones we've seen from Samsung. The software dialpad pops up when the phone button is pressed. From there, it's easy to access the call log, favorites, and the main contact list.
The Exhilarate includes the Samsung Buddies Now home screen widget. It lets you populate home screen panels with links to up to nine buddies. If you want to look at a buddy's entire contact card, simply press their face and you'll be taken into the contact application. This app can be used instead of setting a handful of contact shortcuts to the home screen.

Contact cards themselves can hold tons of data about each contact, and offer simple tools for calling, emailing, or messaging them.
