A fast and capable Gingerbread smartphone but a little chunky though

from Recombu
To call it a budget Galaxy S2 is selling the Galaxy W short. With a 1.4Ghz processor, decent camera and great screen, it can hold its own in the mid-range handset market against the HTC Desire S and HTC Explorer. While offering all the customisable features you expect from Android. It's a shame the phone itself feels a bit chunky and lacks the quality feel of rivals like the HTC Desire S and HTC Rhyme...

Thin and light, DNSe sound enhancement technology, Fast processor

from GSMArena

We've had enough time to form impressions of these inexpensive smartphones. They're classic midrange packages with solid feature sets but the goal is clearly to stay within budget rather than impress anyone with specs.

For a few bills more, users are getting better performance (especially in games) and a better camera (both stills and video) out of the Samsung Galaxy W I8150. But they'll have to install a custom ROM if they want Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (and at the time of writing there isn't one).

Of course, the Samsung Galaxy W is not for geeks only, but they're usually... Full review

An impressive offering for its price point

from TechRadar

Strong in some areas, weak in others, the Samsung Galaxy W is a mash-up of the best and slightly below par offerings on the mid-range smartphone market for those users not yet ready to make the jump to the high-end and costly Samsung Galaxy S2. A very impressive battery life far exceeds those of its higher-end, higher-priced rivals, while the intuitive interface and speedy processor offer a strong introduction to the smartphone scene for those who are adopting the well-priced Samsung Galaxy W as their first trip away from feature phones. With the numerous benefits outweighing the negatives,... Full review

Runs smoothly and does everything you need it do do

from Tracy and Matt
The Samsung Galaxy Wonder very much surprised me when I began using it; for my conclusion I am going to use the quotation I used to describe it to my brother: "it's like the Galaxy Note is the powerful dad, the S2 is the athletic son and the Wonder is the hench baby." This phone is a VERY good phone to buy if you can't quite afford the Note or the S2 as it works very smoothly and I really couldn't find many things wrong with it (except the stupid power/unlock key.)..

Its dull looks do it no justice as software-wise, the device is identical to the current Galaxy S II lineup

from GSMArena
The Samsung Exhibit II 4G’s main goal is to bring people into the T-Mobile fold by offering them access to the Magenta’s “4G” network and affordable plans, at an acceptable price. In this aspect, it has no alternative in terms of functionality and price. If this is what you are after, it will do the job for you. Otherwise, it is a tough sell... Full review

It's a pleasure to use thanks to its great screen, nimble processor and good quality camera

from TrustedReviews
The Samsung Galaxy W isn’t perhaps the prettiest Android phone out there, but it turns out to be a pretty nifty handset to use. It's comfortable to hold, has a good screen and camera, and its 1.4Ghz processor keeps things moving at a spritely pace.  Add in the fact that it's available at very modest price either on PAYG or contract and you've got a very appealing package...

A reasonably priced smartphone that's equipped in handling most basic needs

from PhoneArena

After giving it a good rundown, it's blatantly obvious that the Samsung Exhibit II 4G isn't the shiniest thing out there, but if you're able to overlook some of its inconsistencies, you'll find a reasonably priced smartphone that's equipped in handling most basic needs. Even better, it's not going to drain your pockets thanks to its $29.99 on-contract price – plus, you can pick it up for $199.99 as a prepaid option too. And if you choose to go with the latter option, it'll go perfectly with T-Mobile's new $30 per month prepaid unlimited plan, which offers 100 voice minutes, unlimited text... Full review

Below average call quality in the earpiece and camera is rather slow to focus sometimes

from PhoneArena
Overall, the Samsung GALAXY W lives up to the expectations for its category with its comfortable design, decent pictures and video, rich codec support, strong loudspeaker and plenty of preinstalled goodies like Polaris Office and AllShare. The 3.7-inch LCD display should be commended as well since it delivers some eye-pleasing graphics thanks to its high pixel count. On top of all that, the internet browsing experience is complemented by Adobe Flash support meaning that you can enjoy the web to its fullest, powered by the 1.4GHz processor... Full review
