Samsung Exhibit II 4G (T-Mobile) review

Is a low price this budget 4G phone's best asset?

As mentioned, the Exhibit II's camera is only 3-megapixels. Still, it's capable of taking decent pictures, but not anything we'd want to frame and put up on the wall.

In even outdoor lighting, the camera takes colorful photos, but since the resolution is limited to 2048 × 1536, they're lacking in detail.

Focus can be set manually by touching the screen, and the LED will provide a fill light as needed in addition to a flash, but the camera still struggles with uneven lighting conditions. The results can often appear washed out.

The camera's shutter speed is a little slow, and since there's no dedicated camera button (you must select Camera off the home screen), it's not great for capturing spur of the moment shots.

Still, the photos are of a passable quality, certainly good enough for Facebook or snapping a picture of a plate of food. Also, the camera can easily take self-portrait shots, but they may not be good enough to be your online avatar.
