OK. This phone is upgraded to ICS and is excellent. Can do everything big brother GS3 can do, just on a smalller screen. Added a better battery-2100 mah and it lasts a bit longer.

I bought Exhilarate after reading the specifications of the phone. The good: it looks nice.
Now the bad: The battery charge lasts 36 hours vs specified 250 hours.
Here is the info from the specs:
Talk: 7 hours max.   (420 minutes)
Standby: 250 hours max.   (10.4 days)
1750 mAh LiIon, Removable
Since I understand that if you talk on the phone every day for 3 hours, it will affect the battery, I actually did not use this phone to make calls, play games, or anything other than checking the battery every few hours. The phone lasted on one battery charge 36 hours. Little math shows, it is 15% of the specified time. So I called Samsung. Let me say that before this experience I had Samsung in a high respect. I called Samsung and spoke with supervisor Josia. He told me that Samsung considers a phone delivering 15% of specified performance perfectly good. Let me say again, the phone was not used any calls and no aps were running. I used task manager. This review is written by a computer professional.

Why the hell did Samsung copy the Ideos X5 Android smartphone design which came out way back last year

I see you corrected the "gyro" in the article.
What about tv out ? Surely no tv-out via mhl ?
That's a let down.

Gingerbread... Seriously, samsung? And top that off with a lower clocked outdated S3 processor. They should focus their resources on a smaller number of handsets but with much better quality, harware wise and design wise. They had their original ideas with the wave flasgships in the design category at least. Those were absolutely beatifuly designed phones, espescially the wave 1. Now why cant they do that in their new handsets? A galaxy S3 with an aluminium body with the design accent of a wave 1 would have been an absolute buy for consumers. Samsung has lost its own creativity in trying to beat apple. :/

Look, up in the sky, its a bird, no its a plane, no its super Sammy with another non upgradable Android device. Why bother! Hell use the parts bins to start making new Win 8 devices as Android risks loosing large market share later this year with Win 8 devices and new Iphone.
