Review: Samsung Exhibit 4G

Music

The Exhibit 4G has the Android music player, but several welcome features have been added to it. You can sideload music directly to the device or via the microSD card, and it will automatically appear in the Exhibit 4G's music library. The app lets you sort through playlists, genres, albums, artists, recently played, and so on.

The best thing about the app, though, is that Samsung has included a powerful equalizer. I realize this is something most people will ignore, but for this music aficionado, it is great. There are a dozen preset equalizers, and there is a user-adjustable 8-band custom EQ. That's a rarity on smartphones.

Slacker is preloaded for your music streaming needs, as is Samsung's Media Hub. The Media Hub can be used to purchase/rent TV shows and movies, but not music. If you want to purchase music from the Exhibit 4G, you'll have to download the Amazon MP3 app all on your own.

Video

For video playback, the Exhibit 4G includes the stock Android YouTube application, T-Mobile TV, and a video player app. T-Mobile TV is a video streaming service and offers snack-sized bits of TV shows and sporting events. The video player app is used for movies downloaded from the Media Hub or sideloaded by the user. It works fine, though it doesn't offer anything special or unique in terms of playback features.

The Exhibit 4G also has AllShare DLNA software on board, which lets the phone send/receive video, music, and photo content to/from other similarly equipped devices.
