Samsung Exhibit II 4G review: Second time around

1 December 2011
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...

Hey guys. This phone actually has issues on the T-Mobile network sometimes and they know it (and won't fix it). I have read, however, of one guy who flashed his phone to RebelROM and this has fixed all issue for him, so it may work for everyone else, too. If you have this phone and are a power user, it may behoove you to give this a shot. Just thought I'd share. Good luck!

This phone really did do what it was marketed to do. My wife and I had been AT&T contract customers for about 4-5 years when we decided to make the jump to T-Mobile because of their incredibly priced pre-paid plans. (700 shared min w/ unlimited texts for $110 a month vs. 1500 min/texts each line for $60... not a tough choice). We unlocked our Eternity's and used them on Tmobiles network for a bit before they both had come to an uncertain demise and finally broke. The Exhibit II is an afforadable leap into smartphones without being tied down with a contract.

The device itself I have found to be a bit frustratingly slow (especially when it decides to take it's time updating/responding when all I want to do is make a call, which is what a phone is for, right?) However, the price to functionality aspect is great which makes it a good buy and a great alternative to anyone who doesn't want to be tied into a data plan and contract.

I do plan on unlocking these phones as well and expanding our coverage by using a SIM card for a Straight Talk plan in order to get AT&T's more vast coverage with unlimited 3G data for a little less then T-mobiles least expensive pre-paid unlimited plan ($50).

When Will GSM Arena Review The Galaxy W ?

  • android fanz

from your review, i sort of fallen in love with this phone mainly because of its inner beauty ie software over Galaxy Y.

USA as always have all the privileges to be the first user and get the set made in Korea.

At this attractive price, can GSM let us know when it will come to Malaysia's shore and how much will it cost here? TQ.

  • Rei

Why on earth would they downgrade the Galaxy W?! This is madness! I mean, c'mon! The Galaxy W is already a great bang-for-your-buck smartphone. It's not that expensive and they took away some of the features that made it a great higher-mid tier Android smart phone.

They could have at least bundled an 8GB SDcard on it...

  • King

Why bother with this phone, i want a review of Galaxy W, not this downgraded one !!!
