Review: Samsung Exhibit 4G

Form Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  1

From here on out, the Exhibit 4G mirrors other Samsung devices with respect to the software experience. It runs the same version of TouchWiz on top of Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread that other Samsung devices, such as the Droid Charge and Infuse 4G, use.

There are five home screen panels loaded out of the box, but the Exhibit 4G supports up to seven of them if you wish. Adding/deleting them is a breeze. Samsung has placed four permanent apps in a dock at the bottom of the home screen panels: Phone, Contacts, Messages, and Menu. The home screen panels can, of course, be customized with user apps, shortcuts and widgets.

The main app menu is laid out in 4 x 4 grids that slide from side to side rather than up and down. Applications are listed alphabetically by default, but it is easy to rearrange them into any order you like. The main menu can also be set to appear in a single list view.

The notification shade includes shortcuts for turning off the Exhibit 4G's various radios (such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth) to save power, as well as a quick "silence" key, and a screen rotation control button. Otherwise, the overall menu architecture is about what you might be used to with Android.

The Exhibit 4G is a quick performer. It never felt slow or bogged down.
