Samsung Exhibit II 4G review: Second time around

 

The Samsung Exhibit II 4G is aimed primarily at commitment-challenged consumers. Being one of the quickest product sequels we've seen in a while, the device is marketed mostly as a Pay as you go phone, which offers you the full Android functionality at...

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 14.4 Mbps HSDPA; 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 1GHz Snapdragon CPU; Adreno 205 GPU; Qualcomm MSM 8255 chipset ; 512MB RAM; 1GB ROM; microSD card support (up to 32GB) ; 3.7” LCD display with WVGA (800 x 480 pixels)...

Design is a bit dull ; 3.2MP camera with lowly VGA video recording; no dedicated key ; All plastic construction ; High amount of preloaded apps from T-Mobile ; No memory card enclosed

Samsung Exhibit II 4G Review: Solid 4G Phone for Value-Minded Buyers

 

How often do you use your phone to call people? Odds are, you want a smartphone for all the "smart" things it does with the mobile Internet connection, not for the "phone" itself. That's the idea behind the Samsung Exhibit II 4G ($200 contract-free;...

Good selection of preinstalled apps ; Inexpensive ; Fast 4G connection

Not enough RAM, can be sluggish ; AMOLED display has poor viewing angles ; Short battery life

The Exhibit II 4G offers great value for a cheap 4G phone, but don't buy it expecting the same performance as you'd get on a high-end smartphone.

Samsung Exhibit II 4G - marine blue (T-Mobile) review:

 

T-Mobile has taken an interesting turn with the Samsung Exhibit II 4G, and I'll tell you why. The original Samsung Exhibit 4G (which was quite good) only received the breath of life in June, and it's already being subsumed by a sequel. Moreover, the...

The Samsung Exhibit II 4G has HSPA+ speeds, good call quality, and a lot more bells and whistles than you'd expect from an Android 2.3 Gingerbread phone at this price.

A cheaper-looking design keeps the Exhibit II from being a lustworthy handset, and photos lack a little brightness.

A surprisingly full feature set makes the Samsung Exhibit II 4G ideal for Android bargain-hunters; just don't expect the best of the best.

Samsung Exhibit II SGH-T679 4G (T-Mobile)

 

The Exhibit II 4G is a quad-band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and tri-band HSPA+ 21 (850/1700/2100) device with 802.11b/g/partial-n Wi-Fi. It also supports Wi-Fi calling, which is one of our favorite T-Mobile features. Voice quality was fine overall,...

Good balance of features and speed for the price. Wi-Fi calling works well

Poor camera. No voice dialing over Bluetooth

The Samsung Exhibit II 4G gives T-Mobile customers a budget Android cell phone with both contract and prepaid options.

Samsung Exhibit II 4G Review

 

Wasting no time in bringing the Samsung Exhibit II 4G to market (its predecessor first busted onto the scene this past summer), it's being introduced this time around as both a prepaid and postpaid option. With the former, it's being blessed with an...

Samsung Galaxy W i8150

 

If you haven't got the dough for Samsung's Galaxy S2, then the more affordable Galaxy W is definitely wroth a look.

Great screen, Fast performance, Good camera, Affordable price tag

TouchWiz UI looks a bit flat, Build quality could be better

Samsung Galaxy W Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Wonder very much surprised me when I began using it; for my conclusion I am going to use the quotation I used to describe it to my brother: “it's like the Galaxy Note is the powerful dad, the S2 is the athletic son and the Wonder is...

"Completely useless lump of fecal matter"

 

My wife and I changed over to t-Mobile a whileback from Verizon. I have no problem with t-Mobile except with the free phones upon which we were saddled. Since we have had the phones, we have experienced: random reboots that never stop, an operating...

I will be upgrading my phones soon.

"Slow and Buggy Mess"

 

This was my first Android phone, and almost caused me to go iPhone the next time around. I have experienced all of the bugs that everyone in other reviews have listed. In addition, if Bluetooth was turned on, and a call came in, I would get loud...

Good Call Quality. Cheap Battery Replacement,

Buggy Bluetooth, freezing issues, SLOOOOOOOW!
