Review: Samsung Exhibit 4G
In the recent tri-fecta of Samsung Android smartphones for T-Mobile, the Exhibit 4G is clearly the best. While the Dart and Gravity Smart each have their own strengths, the Exhibit 4G rates above average in almost every way we test phones.
The display looks great, call quality is excellent, data performance is zippy, and even battery life rates well. The TouchWiz user interface isn't too intrusive and gives the system software its own, non-stock look. The 1GHz processor means the Exhibit 4G is a speedy device, and the media playback/capture tools perform with pizazz.
About the only complaint I can lodge against the Exhibit 4G is its ho-hum design. Like the Honda Accord, it may be a bit on the boring side to look at, but it will get you where you want to go, reliably, time and again. There's a lot to like about the Exhibit 4G, including the low, $80 price point. Go ahead, buy one, you can thank me later.
