The Bottom Line The value is high and the drawbacks are few and far between on the Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate. Pumped with high-performing hardware and creative software features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is an excellent, top-end phone that's neck and neck with the HTC One X. If you can overlook the cheap plastic design, the HTC Vivid delivers an all-around excellent user experience at a palatable price.
