Introducing the Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate

I always enjoy talking about a new product or service.  Part of our mission, here at Consumer Cellular, is to stay on top of technological changes in the wireless communications business.

That’s why in this blog post, I’m pleased to let you know about another new addition to our product line: the Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate. It’s a mid-range yet feature-rich Android device at only half the price of our upper-end LG model. Although the Exhilarate costs less ($150), it still comes with plenty of features and a speedy dual-core processor.


Let me just mention a few of the things you get with this device. The Exhilarate has a 4.0-inch display with 800 x 480 pixels, and uses Samsung’s Super AMOLED technology, which means you can easily see the display, even in bright daylight.

It comes with two cameras: a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera for taking photos and videos, as well as a front-facing 1.3 megapixel camera for video chats. Of course, it gives you a full complement of smartphone features, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth®, GPS, MP3 music player, customizable home screens, and more.

The Exhilarate runs on a strong battery with a dependable charge. It also delivers excellent voice quality, striking the right balance of volume and quality.

Most of all, I am very pleased to introduce you to the Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate because it is an ideal fit for our corporate and customer service goals. As many of you know, we’re very “green” conscious at Consumer Cellular and have made recycling a major driving force at our company.

The Exhilarate is an eco-friendly device and one of the few to have earned an Environmentally Preferable Platinum certification from Underwriters Laboratories (UL®). It’s made from 80% recycled post-consumer materials, but you wouldn’t know it because the device is so well designed it feels solid in your hand. Plus, the Exhilarate comes with an energy-efficient charger.

In sum, the Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate is an eco-friendly, mid-range, no contract smartphone that delivers great bang for the buck. Please visit our phones page on our website for more details of the Exhilarate and your other choices.

It’s our job to seek out and evaluate better wireless phone options for our customers. We do that so you don’t have to.

    Will your Sim cards still work in my older phone (Huawei 8800) ? I will be a new customer in July and wanted to keep my “old” phone. Thanks!!

    • Tina at Consumer Cellular says

      Kathy, thank you for your question. Was the Huawei purchased through us? If so, then yes. It will surely work. If you purchased the phone elsewhere, it should work as long as it is an unlocked GSM phone. You may call us at 1-800-686-4460 and we would be happy to discuss your options with you.

    I would like to know if the Samsung Exhilarate is a GSM unlocked phone that can be used by another carrier besides Consumer Cellular?

    reply to Roz

    • Tina at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for your question. Consumer Cellular cannot guarantee that our phones will work on another service and we do not sell our phone without signing up for service. If you would like to hear about our great plans and services, please call us at 1-800-686-4460

      • Nicolene Junkins says

        I love my galaxy exhilarate and the Consumer Cellular plan saves us a great deal. However, we travel to Europe every year and would like to avoid having to purchase an international phone for a few weeks each year. Is it possible to use an international SIM card in my phone?

        reply to Nicolene

        • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

          We’re so glad to hear that you love your phone, Nicolene. It doesn’t sound like an international SIM card would be the best fit for your phone. You can put your phone in Airplane mode, and still be able to use Wi-Fi to check email, or even use apps like Google Hangouts that will allow you to send instant messages using Wi-Fi. We’re happy to talk with you about your options, just give us a call at 888-345-5509. Thank you for taking the time to comment, and we hope you have a wonderful time in Europe!

      Yes it does. Thanks for asking, Linda. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to give us a ring at 888-345-5509. Thank you.

  9. Mitchell says

    I was wondering if they all say consumer cellular on them? Not a huge fan of the lettering as it distracts from the nice looking phone

    reply to Mitchell

    • Dominic at Consumer Cellular says

      Hi Mitchell. Thanks for the question. You can change the wallpaper to anything you wish. Most people change their wallpaper so it displays a picture they”ve taken. You don”t have to keep the Consumer Cellular wallpaper that is pre-loaded on the phone. Thank you.
