Review: Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate for AT&T
The Exhilarate comes with the stock Android browser. With the capable processor and HSPA+/LTE on board, the Exhilarate offers a solid browsing device. When under strong AT&T coverage, browsing sessions were a joy. Web pages loaded in the blink of an eye under HSPA+/LTE coverage. I can't state that web sites loaded faster via LTE than HSPA+, but it felt faster. Browsing was only impacted under the worst network conditions (one bar or less).
Perhaps the biggest negative about browsing from the Exhilarate is that you can't use the excellent Chrome for Android browser. Why not? Because Chrome requires Android 4.0, and the Exhilarate is (for now) limited to Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

With seven home screen panels and apps and widgets galore, you have a vast canvas on which to personalize the Exhilarate and make it your own. I only wish there were some customizable lock screen shortcuts.
