T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Exhibit (or the Galaxy S3 Mini) now available for $20 down

t-mobile-samsung-galaxy-exhibit

Earlier rumors suggesting we’d see T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy Exhibit, which is essentially a Galaxy S3 Mini, by the end of this month seem to have been dead on as Magenta has announced the availability of the device as of today. Folks interested in the device can walk into their T-Mobile store and put just $20 down to walk away with the device (after which they’ll be subject to payments of $9 per month over the course of 24 months). You can also buy it outright for $235.

It’s an affordable option that anyone looking to jump into the smartphone arena for the first time should consider. The Galaxy Exhibit isn’t quite as powerful as the Samsung Galaxy S3 it’s positioned next to, but it should be able to get the job done for anyone who isn’t expecting to be able to control the Pentagon from their smartphones.

The Galaxy Exhibit could be considered tiny in this day and age, with a 4-inch WVGA display gracing the front. The device also features a dual-core 1GHz processor, a 5 megapixel camera on the back with a 1 megapixel sensor on the front, Android 4.1 and more. Be sure to take a nice, long look over at T-Mobile’s website before making your ultimate decision.

    Well it isn’t terribly exciting, nor is it really news. and I feel its overpriced for a low end device

    • Nathan Aker

      $235 is overpriced? Maybe only if you’re comparing it to the Nexus 4.

      • Jerel Butler

        no I am comparing to the LG motion, It is a 1.5 dual core phone with 3.5 display 1gb of ram 5 gb of internal memory for use, has 4g lte radios, 5mp camera, and running ics but sadly its not gsm, that phone prices at around 50-150 depending on what sale its on , if the exhibit was just under 220 I would say hey that is one niffy little device, but it isn’t so I say its over priced.

          Smaller screen, low resolution, older OS version, and the all important “it’s CDMA.” It’s a good value phone, but it is a lot less phone.

          • Ben Kapferer

            There’s also the Optimus L9 on T-Mobile (which can be bought on prepaid for $199).

          • Jerel Butler

            Still I say its over priced, like 15 bucks over priced, If I pay over 230 for a phone I want more of what I want, and this phone doesn’t have what I want or need at that price point, the Lg I mentioned never exceeds 150 for what you get, I bought mine new for $50. as for this phone all I see is a samsung name and price tag reflecting that.

    good for kids or new user

    • Jerel Butler

      Yes Lots of phones are, but at this year at chuck e cheese I seen children simply using a normal S3 not a mini, same when I got other places they seem to get the full sized phone rather than fun sized, but I still don’t see small phones with 3.2 screens and gig of ram with lte yet

      • delahaya

        Good point

        • Jerel Butler

          no parent wants to be the one the kid ask for an iphone and gets an ipod

    • Toilet Seat Wipe

      In what ways?
