Review: Samsung Exhibit 4G
The Exhibit 4G offers the same stock Android messaging apps as found on the Dart and Gravity Smart, but, puzzlingly, it ditches T-Mobile's Group Text and Cloud Text features.
There are three email programs (Gmail, Email, T-Mobile Email) from which users can choose. I still prefer the native Gmail app, though the generic email application works fine for non-Gmail email services (such as Exchange).
The SMS application offers threaded, conversational texting and the GTalk application serves as the Google instant messaging client. You'll need to hit the Android Market to find support for AIM, Windows Live or Yahoo IM.

Facebook is pre-installed, but Twitter isn't. Google's Latitude is also pre-installed, as are some catch-all social networking applications from Samsung. The catch-all app can access Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, and RSS if you want to get all your updates in one place.
The Exhibit 4G is pre-loaded with Qik's video chatting service, and includes a user-facing camera to use with it. My experiences with Qik continue to be hit-or-miss, and it can only be used with other Qikkers.
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.
Review: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ for Sprint
The Galaxy S6 Edge+ is a bigger and better version of the Galaxy S6 Edge. We were pleased with the larger display, improved battery life, excellent camera, and blistering performance.
