Samsung Galaxy Ace Review: In Depth
4 days ago
Conclusion: The Galaxy Ace is a great mid-range smartphone, and is one of the best-looking mid-priced smartphones we’ve seen. It has all the features you’d expect from an Android phone, although it lacks the very latest version, Android Gingerbread, and the faster internet browser and other enhancements it brings. The Galaxy Ace is also competing against older models, with bigger screens, and more powerful insides, whose prices are tumbling, but it stands up well against its rivals.
Summary: While the Samsung Galaxy Ace is certainly a new phone, it is definitely trying not to be the most powerful smartphone on the market. Not every smartphone owner wants to (or can afford) a high-end piece of technology, and so the Ace is at the rescue as a dependable phone that still mostly copes with most software thrown at all smartphones these days.
Conclusion: The Galaxy Ace could have easily been lost in the ever rising sea of Android smartphones. Even if it isn’t a benchmark blazing superphone, it does have a lot going for it. The interface is snappy, and the phone itself is nice to hold. It may be made of plastic, but it doesn’t feel like it’s going to fall apart in your hands, and the overall size is just right for most peoples hands.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Ace is new mid-range Android phone from Samsung. Despite the fact it’s not a top-end smartphone, though, it’s still got some pretty cool features, thanks largely to how quickly mobile technology moves on. Last year’s flagship phone very quickly becomes this year’s mid-range phone priced for the masses, and so it is with the Galaxy Ace, which isn’t all that different from the Galaxy S.
Conclusion: In our tests of its calling quality , though, it underwhelmed us with reverberating sounds on our end of the line. Our callers reported hearing rather unnatural digitized voices, which suggests a poor microphone performance. The Ace comes with a 1350mAh battery, with a quoted talk time of 11 hours. In real life, the phone had no problem getting us through the day, but two days were generally a tall order, so we had to charge it every other day.
Pros: iPhone-like looks, Above average camera for stills, Hot-swappable microSD cards (up to 32GB)
Cons: Poor video recording, Below average calling quality, No Flash, No DivX/Xvid codec support out of the box
