Android Gingerbread Operating System
The Samsung Exhibit II runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread) which features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.
Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.
The onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.
The Exhibit II also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.

As for other issues, the camera isn't very good and the screen is very hard to see in daylight. But if you don't want to turn your phone to 2G whenever you want to send a text or you don't care if you have to take your battery out every day when the screen freezes so you can reset the phone...think about this purchase...PLEASE LOOK AT THE SAMSUNG EXHIBIT 2 FORUMS ON TMOBILES WEBSITE SO YOU CAN READ THE NIGHTMARE MANY OF US HAVE HAD WITH THIS DEVICE AND TMOBILES TOTAL DISREGARD OF THEIR CUSTOMERS!!! Even a Tmobile Tech Support person told me he had the same problems with freezing and SMS failures and he said Tmobile has already purchased the device so they're not going to do anything. Samsung doesnt care cuz this isn't their flagship device but one would think Tmobile would want to reduce their churn and improve their sucky customer service and provide customers with a working phone. This is considered a mid-grade phone but one should expect and demand minimal functionality...inability to send 4g texts...having your phone freeze daily or having it turn off and on is not normal - even for android
Within a couple weeks the phone was overheating and freezing/shutting down a few times a day. It was related to the battery and the only way to get the phone back up was to put it on the charger until it reached "full charge." This would take 30 minutes, or hours, depending on how low the battery was when it froze. I took it back to the store and asked for a different phone, the response was "sorry, you're past your 14-day "buyer's remorse" period but you can send it in for a replacement under warranty of the same model, so that's what I did.
The second phone didn't have the overheating problem, but had an issue with SMS/text messaging. Text messages were failing, or just showing a "failed" message with some going through (unknown to me). This was also an issue with the first phone. I contacted T-Mobile tech support and they said it was a "known problem" and they were "working" with Samsung to fix the issue. I tried multiple recommended solutions such as trying to text in GSM only mode, clearing the cache, and eventually resetting the phone to factory defaults (all a total waste of my time). Nothing worked.
After a few more calls to customer service and tech support I asked for an alternate replacement phone and they said no, I would have to wait until the issue was fixed. I asked if I would have to pay my bill in the meantime, and they said yes, of course. I then demanded to be let out of my contract since they were not providing the services I was paying for. They responded by offering a $5 dollar discount for 6 months (but still no SMS or solution). I said no, that is not acceptable I purchased this phone and signed a contract because I need text messaging. If T-Mobile cannot provide the full service I will need either another phone or another provider. They still said no but gave me an address to write to (no phone number), and said it would take 10-14 days before I got a response.
I wrote to the address, and they did not even acknowledge the problem I outlined in my letter, just a short standardized response saying sorry you 14-day buyer's remorse period has expired and you are obligated under contract. Apparently the contract does not apply to T-Mobile, who admitted selling a phone with a known problem and provided no solution. They just said sorry, not our problem, bring it up with Samsung. Maybe the problem really is with Samsung (debatable) but T-Mobile should not be selling a phone with a 2-Year contract if they know there is an issue with the phone and have no solution. One would think T-Mobile would just do the right thing and just replace the phone they sold with one that works, but they systematically refused.
After the response I called customer service again and reminded them I was paying my bill, keeping my end of the contract, and the only acceptable solution was to provide me with an alternate phone that works or let me out of the contract. Again they said no, followed by "is there anything else I can help you with today?" I said I was not going to hang up until they got me somebody who would resolve the issue, so the woman said okay I'll take care of it right now, and told me my service was canceled effective immediately. Before I thanked her for resolving the problem I asked her to confirm I would not have to pay an early termination fee and she said yes your will, thank you for doing business with T-Mobile and hung up.
I hope this serves as a warning to anybody who is considerding purchasing this phone or signing a contract with T-Mobile.
* Occasionally it will force close the "text message" "dial" and "contact" screens back out to the home area at random times. Once it starts happening, it will continue to do so until a full restart of the phone.
* Randomly disconnects the data service, making all webpages/facebook/email unavailable until you figure out the problem and re-check the box.
* 2 out of 3 of the phones my husband has had (same model as it's all that was covered under warranty) won't connect to wifi (although mine will).
* GPS consistently locks up mid-route.
* With nothing else running, normal applications like Angry Birds or Facebook will start lagging to the point where we have to force close the phone.
* Phone will randomly power off for no reason.
* Phone will force close applications constantly.
* Screen Lock will sometimes lock completely, forcing a hard restart of the phone.
Add to that the spotty reception from T-Mobile, and you have a crappy phone with crappy reception. All in all... terrible.
