Pros For the price, you can't beat it. It has the latest version of Android, which is a big improvement from the LG G1 that I used to have. Android has a nice way of looking at phrases in your emails to help you make appointments, and other nice features
Cons Android seems really buggy and inconsistent. It has no way to easily exit programs, which they claim doesn't affect battery or performance but it does. My phone starts to stall. The battery is terrible. It can be hard to type corrections in emails
Summary Because of the price, it's the best value out there for Android phones. I am on my second Android phone and I find it to be extremely buggy to the point that it drives me nuts. The battery life is absolutely miserable. Unless you barely use the phone, you will run out in the middle of the day. I am not playing games and watching movies. The email sends 5 copies of the same message frequently to someone and there are tons of things that don't work properly. Thanks for testing this so thoroughly, Google!
Pros AMO-LED display 480 x 800 very crisp and clear, 1Ghz Processor (Very snappy performance), Pocketable, Front-facing camera, Flash on the rear camera, 4G HSPA+ 21 Megabits per-second support (Theoretical).
Cons The ambient light sensor isn't too great, meaning if you're outdoors in direct sunlight, your screen is very difficult to see (almost impossible). Screen is a little on the smaller size. Battery life is so so but it really depends on your usage and turnin
Summary Overall this phone is a great value. It has a great feature set that phones twice its price have, The build quality of the device is very nice, Samsung has definitely stepped their game up on their hardware. Phone is pocketable, great resolution display, has Android 2.3 Gingerbread (latest release). I have no major complaints about this phone, at 80 bucks with a two year contract it's a steal, if you're looking for an Android phone with up to date features without breaking your pocket definitely check out the Exhibit 4G.
Cons Lack of durability
Below average camera with a useless flash
Summary I have had this phone since February 2013. To say the least, my opinion of Samsung has changed drastically for the worse as a result of this device.
Don't expect this thing to hold up to average wear and tear. Its performance was OK at first, but after 9-10 months of use it's really fallen off noticeably. More so than any other phone I've ever owned.
It is extremely slow. It takes forever to load up the camera (or anything else for that matter). When I'm trying to add someone's contact into my phone, I always have to say "sorry, my phone is really slow" because there's always an awkward 10-20 second pause while we wait for the contacts app to load up.
Attempting to cruise Instagram or Facebook is always a dicey experience. It's not uncommon for the phone to freeze, requiring a reboot.
The 'flash' on the camera is useless. Every photo I've ever used it for has been a bleached out mess.
I would not recommend the Galaxy Exhibit 4G to even my worst enemy. Its performance is below average at best. It takes forever to respond to the simplest of tasks. Extremely frustrating. I feel like I was duped out of $120.
I have never been so dissatisfied with a mobile device. I will do everything in my power to avoid Samsung phones in the future.
Pros Price, but that's debatable. No barbain.
Cons Mail is clunky - not a good phone for emergency use. Freezes, scroll doesn't work well at all l- either too fast, or will fail to go to top of scroll bar.
Summary Save yourself some time and trouble - get a better phone.
Pros It is cheap. That is all that is going for it.
Cons Locks constantly, VERY slow performance, poor battery life
Summary This is the worst phone I have ever owned. I have had many phones over the years and this is absolutely the worst. We went with T-Mobile because we want to keep costs down with data/voice/text with 4G. I have 4 lines with T-Mobile on the value plan. Unfortunately this phone is so bad it is to the point of being dangerous. It kicks us out of texting, dialing, etc. If we were in an emergency, we would be screwed. All 3 phones exhibit this behavior. I am willing to pay $200 per line early termination. That is $800! Well, it makes more financial sense since we cannot live with these phones but because we are on the value plan, we are not eligible for phone upgrades. It would be cheaper for me to go to Verizon or ATT and pay $10 a month more per line but get free phones or Galaxy S2 for $50 each. If I want Galaxy S2 or any other phone, I am looking at $500 per line. That is $2000 so it makes more sense to pay early termination.... So sorry we got these phones. The 4th phone is a Black Berry which is crap.
