Samsung Exhibit II 4G Review

The Samsung Exhibit II 4G is another very decent (to say the least) Android-powered smartphone by the company, available through T-Mobile in the United States. Featuring 4G speeds, a high-end processor, and so much more, the Exhibit II 4G is another good reason to consider the Android platform for your next smartphone purchase.

Hardware

Some of the hardware included within the Exhibit II 4G includes a 3 MP digital camera with LED flash, auto-focus and more; 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of ROM, microSD support, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 1 GHz Qualcomm processor. As for software, the Exhibit II 4G is unfortunately a little behind, running an older version of Android (v2.3.5 a.k.a. “Gingerbread”).

Design

In terms of looks, Samsung’s Exhibit II 4G is relatively compact and good-looking. One downside is that the phone is a bit thicker in comparison to a lot of its competition, but not so much that it is an automatic turn-off. The touch screen display is a bit smaller than other competing Android-powered smartphones at only 3.7” with a 480 x 800 resolution, which is another of the device’s few disappointments.

Size

The Exhibit II 4G is a bit smaller than most of today’s smartphones at a mere 4.54 x 2.35 x 0.45 inches. It weighs in at only 4 ounces, which is actually surprising considering the device’s thickness.

Battery

The device runs a 1500 mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery that offers up to 15 days of standby time and 5.5 hours of usage time. While the usage time may be surprisingly low, standby time is decent and of course these times are bound to vary between users.

Conclusion

While not the best (Android-powered or otherwise) smartphone on the market, the Exhibit II 4G is a good choice if you’re looking for a good balance in features and in price. Unfortunately, you will be sacrificing quite a few features that other high-end smartphones boast, but you will still get mostly everything that you will need in a smartphone with your purchase of this device.
