The Samsung Exhibit 4G has lots of great features like Android 2.3, 4G, Qik video chat, and multiple messaging, but with all of its perks, the bad features outweigh the great features of the Samsung Exhibit 4G Android smartphone.
It’s a Bit Too “Teensy”
When you hear about the Android 2.3 support, video and multiple text chatting, SWYPE technology, preinstalled games, and 4G internet access of the Samsung Exhibit 4G smartphone, you’d expect to see something like the Apple iPhone 4 or HTC EVO 3D, but when you actually see the Samsung Exhibit 4G, you’d be truly underwhelmed. The supped up features of the Exhibit 4G are overkill on its small 3.5 inch display with 480 x 800 pixel resolution.
Hardware Is Obsolete
A 1GHz single core processor, 512MB of RAM, and 512MB of memory (expandable to 32GB via a microSD card) sounds like the specs of a phone in it’s prime in 2009, not 2011. The average smartphone (and most of the Samsung Exhibit 4G’s competitors) are equipped with specs that are at least 100 percent better than the Exhibit 4G with dual core processors, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory (minimum) and other key features.
Battery Life Is Horrible
Android 2.3 Gingerbread is a very efficient mobile operating system that’s designed with power management in mind, yet the Samsung Exhibit 4G has very poor battery life. The Samsung Exhibit 4G is advertised as having a battery that supports up to 6.5 hours of talk time ‘” and if 6.5 hours of battery life is what’s advertised, after playing games, conducting multiple messages and video chat, and using apps, it’s safe to say that you’ll likely get less battery life than is promised. With modern smartphones clocking in at 10 hours of battery life and more, 6.5 hours of battery life is just too little for what you’ll likely want to do with any smartphone.
Camera Quality Is Toy-like
Let’s face it, the camera quality of the Samsung Exhibit 4G is similar to something that you’d find in a Fisher-Price toy. With only 3 megapixels, the Samsung Exhibit 4G has one of the worst cameras equipped in any modern smartphone. In a day and time when 5 megapixels is considered low-budget and 8 and 12 megapixel smartphone cameras are common, why would anyone bother taking photos with a 3 megapixel smartphone camera?
