Review: Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate for AT&T

Form Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  9  

Samsung did a fine job with the Galaxy Exhilarate for AT&T. For a mid-range device, it scores well across the board. To use a sports analogy, it won't make the All Stars team, but it would be a solid competitor for the league's MVP.

I am particularly impressed with the materials in the Exhilarate and how well it is put together. This is by far Samsung's best eco-friendly effort. If you didn't know ahead of time that it was made from 80% recycled post-consumer materials, you'd never know it. The same cannot be said of some of Samsung's earlier efforts.

Beyond that, the Exhilarate gets all the basics right. The user interface is speedy and easy to use; phone calls sound great and the Exhilarate maintains a strong connection to AT&T's network; the media features -- particularly the camera and video camera -- deliver strong results; and all the essential communications tools are covered.

In a world full of smartphone extremes, the Exhilarate strikes a good balance, and in so doing, finds an identity all its own.
