Samsung Galaxy Ace 3
8 December 2013
Summary: This phone is considered a good entry to smartphones because of its affordable price. For the features it offers and with Android 4.2 we see it as a good deal for starters or if you are looking for a good phone for your kids.
Pros: Android 4.2, reasonable price.
Cons: Only 4 GB of memory Mid-range features, camera pictures’ quality is not very good, not clear display.
Summary: Hot smartphone. Samsung is offering the Galaxy Ace 3 GT-S7275R for less than 260 Euros (~$352) but this is no cheap piece. In fact, we are surprised by the high quality of the 4-inch smartphone which even offers an LTE module.
Pros: High-quality workmanship, System performance is good enough for all the latest games and apps, Bright display, Fast internet connectivity thanks to LTE, Stays cool, Battery can be removed, Good run times, Cheap, The overall package is a good one. Samsung has provided good workmanship, a nice scre...
Cons: Average camera, Relatively low resolution display, Too power-hungry while off or in standby, A better camera: A 5 MP camera takes decent pictures, but their quality is average.
Summary: The Galaxy Ace 3 has an adequate set of specs for the price, but neither its screen, software or performance match the Motorola Moto G's, which costs half as much. Unlike the Moto G though, the Ace 3 does offer 4G and expandable storage -- the only reasons to go for this phone over Motorola's
Conclusion: Looking at the Ace 3 merely from a specifications standpoint, it's hard to see it as a very worthy upgrade over the already excellent Galaxy Ace 2. After all, for a device that follows its predecessor by more than a year, you'd expect more than merely an extra 200 MHz under the hood, 0.2 inches...
Pros: Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE; dual/quad-band 3G with HSPA, Quad-band LTE support (for LTE version), 4" 16M-color WVGA capacitive touchscreen; 233ppi, Android OS v4.2.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz UI, Dual-core 1GHz (3G) / 1.2GHz (LTE) Cortex-A9 CPU, VideoCore IV GPU; Broadcom BCM21664 chipset, 1GB of RAM...
Cons: Very minimal upgrades over predecessor, Low internal storage, Tired and exhausted design, no differentiation whatsoever, No Air View, Air gestures or Multi-view
Excerpt: Despite the abundance of low and mid-range Samsung handsets and the granularity to which each differentiates itself from the next, the Ace family has always proved to standout to consumers on the high street.
Pros: Highly customisable user experience, Removable storage and battery, Solid build quality, 4G connectivity
Cons: Inconsistent performance, Unimaginative design, 4G use cripples battery life, Display could be brighter
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 — is it a worthwhile device or is it just another handset in Samsung’s quest to make all the phones? While I wouldn’t get super excited over this device, it’s still pretty decent, despite it being like every other Samsung device.
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is a pretty decent midrange phone, with an okay screen, reasonably fast processor and better than average camera. But the game has changed with the Google-backed Motorola Moto G, and the midrange has shifted up in spec and down in price.
Pros: 4G connectivity, expandable memory, decent camera
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 brings good performance and excellent battery life to buyers on a budget. Its screen resolution may not be fantastic and some of its software additions are fairly superfluous, but now the price has come down, it's a much better value handset than a lot of the competition.
