Review: Samsung Exhibit 4G
The calling application is the stock Android app. From the dialpad, you also have access to voicemail.
In-call options include the typical features, such as adding a line, sending the call to Bluetooth or speakerphone, turning the dialpad on/off, etc. All of the features worked properly.
The Exhibit 4G also supports T-Mobile's Wi-Fi calling feature. When the Exhibit 4G's Wi-Fi radio is active, it can make calls via your home Wi-Fi network. The Exhibit 4G will not roam onto the cellular network if you step out of range from your Wi-Fi hotspot, however.

The contact app, too, is stock Android. The Exhibit 4G makes it easy to search through the contact database with but a few taps, as well as sort contacts into groups and/or favorites.
The Exhibit 4G also includes the Samsung "Buddies Now" home screen widget that can be populated with links to up to nine buddies. It loads up a full-screen carousel with the faces of your nine top friends. Scroll through the list for easy access to calling and messaging tasks via the action bubbles that appear in the widget next to your friends' avatars.
If you want to look at a buddy's entire contact card, simply press their avatar 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.
Hands-On: Samsung Exhibit 4G
The Samsung Exhibit 4G for T-Mobile is a curious phone. In an age where most Android phones are either cheap, messaging-oriented, or top-end flagship models, the Exhibit carves out its own space in the middle ground, including select advanced features while keeping a low price point.
Review: Samsung Galaxy S7 Active for AT&T
Samsung's latest semi-rugged smartphone for AT&T dials back the good looks of the Galaxy S7 in favor of a stronger, studier frame. The S7 Active is tough enough to take a tumble without the brick-like bulk of some fully rugged handsets.
Review: Alcantara Case for Samsung Galaxy S9+
I learned the hard way that the Samsung Galaxy S9+ is breakable. This dual-glass-sided phone is begging for some protection.
Review: OnePlus 3T
This unlocked Android smartphone from OnePlus is an excellent handset for the contract-averse. OnePlus took its excellent flagship phone from earlier this year and improved it with a round of fresh components under the hood.
