4G race heats up

The latest inductee into T-Mobile's growing roster of 4G phones, the Samsung Exhibit 4G is a portable, comfortable, and affordable Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone.

Look and feel

The Exhibit is enrobed in a soft-touch finish on the back cover and a grippier rubberized material on the front. That makes it smooth to hold and much less plastic-feeling than many other Samsung smartphones.

Camera and flash

In addition to the 3-megapixel camera and flash on the back, the Exhibit has a front-facing VGA camera for self-portraits and video chatting.

Storage

Although the Exhibit comes loaded with a 4GB microSD card, the phone accepts up to 32GB of expandable memory.

Swype

The Exhibit's 3.5-inch keyboard is at our lower limit, because at a certain size a virtual keyboard gets hard to read and accurately navigate. Swype, the phone's default keyboard, helps mitigate the challenge of tiny type.
