|You like to call and you like to text. And you like to do it all as fast as possible. That's exactly why Samsung created the Samsung Exclaim. This stylish dual-slider has a dedicated numeric keypad, plus a full, slide-out QWERTY keyboard. That means, whether you're calling, texting or updating your Facebook page, you're doing it as quickly as your fingers or thumbs can take you. That's the beauty of the Exclaim; it's the best of both keyboards.|

The Samsung Exclaim has an accessible dual-slider design with easy-to-use navigation controls and a comfortable keyboard. It offers a media-friendly feature set and admirable call quality.
The Samsung Exclaim has a nonstandard headset jack and small menu text. The external speaker is unimpressive and the frame size of the streaming video player is tiny.
The Samsung Exclaim is a welcome addition to Sprint's handset line. Its dual-slider design, feature set, and good call quality more than compensate for its shortcomings.

This phone is not terrible, although the interface is one of the worst out of all the android phones. Even though I'm running froyo, I don't get the ui that other androids running froyo get and there are only 3 home screens as opposed to at least 6. The phone stutters its way through everything which is even more annoying with a touchscreen than anything else. The internet works sometimes and then sometimes it doesn't and Sprint always gets it to work for a few days so they won't replace it. The phone I bought was perfect...no flaws. It is nothing the buyer did to the phone. The phone itself just was hastily put together and has a bad radio that none of the other androids have and hasn't been used since 2007. One questions Samsung's decision to do such a thing, and questions further why they tried to hype the phone up as an affordable epic and masked the true device behind it's name. Sometimes my contacts will delete themselves randomly or unlink with the contact I've set it with and just show up as a number. It is very frustrating at times, but it's still an android, and for the most part it works. The call quality is nice and I can get most android apps. One other thing that bothers me is that the orientation will only turn to landscape when flipped to the left and not the right. All in all, I give it average for an android. It just doesn't manage to live up to the name.
I love everything about this phone....except the battery life. After 8 hours of light to moderate use the battery is completly drained. I think maybe since Virgin Mobile uses a......shall I say "stripped down" version of the phone the battery life is another place where they "cut corners". After a few reviews from online forums and verbal reviews from Sprint Samsung Intercept Owners it seems that the battery life isn't great either but it lasts longer than my Virgin Mobile version. But Virgin Mobile cannot be beat where it really matters....the service price. I love the $40 monthly no contract plan (1200 mins and unlimited data. I switch between the $60 no contract plan (unlimited minutes and unlimited data) and $40 monthly no contract plans as needed. If needed I can also drop down to a $25 no contract plan or I can simply add minutes for a Pay-As-You-Go rate. I will never be stuck in a 2 year contract ever again.Oh yea...and if I ever want to upgrade to the new LG Optimus all I have to do is buy it and swap it and I'm ready to go. Cant wait for the Android Froyo Upgrade at the end of the month. Frugals Unite....We will beat the system.
Love the phone! It's on the Droid market so I enjoy playing all the games and it has tons of apps, games, and gadgets to choose from. This particular model phone comes in pink which is my favorite color. Features a slide qwerty keyboard or a qwerty touch screen keyboard, and voiceprompts for typing and call/search commands. only complaint would be the battery life is too short, but that is to be expected with any smartphone, my advice would be just to buy a car charger! =) overall an awesome phone! And it's a nice compact size compared to the other "droid" phones.
The menu(s) on the phone are not as great as they could be. I like the dual keyboard feature and it has a nice camera, along with a camcorder with sound, but neither can zoom. The QWERTY keyboard is a little small, maybe I just need to get used to it, but the top row is a little hard to use since it's close to the rest of the phone. I don't like how when you close the phone (in either way) nothing happens. For example, if you're on the phone and you slide it closed, it stays on the call, to end it you have to hit end. It also seems to have a lot of good features I haven't checked out yet. Overall, it's a decent phone.
This phone is the best I've had in quite some time. I was looking for this model because it has the dual slide. It is fast, reliable. The only drawback is the battery cover falls off too easily if the phone is dropped.
