How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Samsung's Galaxy Exhilarate runs an older version of Android, has just a 5-megapixel camera, and, despite having just a 4-inch screen, is bulkier than Samsung's Galaxy S III, which boasts a 4.5-inch display. So, what's good about the Exhilarate? Quite simply, the fact that, at just $30 with a two-year contract, it's one of the cheapest ways to get a decent Android smartphone with access to AT&T's fast 4G LTE data network. That makes it worth considering if you don't want to spend $100 or more for a higher-end smartphone. However, if you want to spend even less, the Pantech Burst has similar features, and is available for free with a two-year AT&T contract.
