Samsung Galaxy Ace Review
15 March 2011
Conclusion: In our tests of its , 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 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
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Ace is designed to be a budget Android smartphone, and I must admit I was pleasantly surprised with it, as it has a range of features that you would expect in a more expensive Android device. It definitely feels a lot better quality that some of the other budget Android devices we have tested, and feels very well built, the display is sharp and crisp and the touchscreen is responsive.
Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 – Not the Best in the Milky Way
5 March 2011
Summary: The Galaxy Ace is priced very attractively at Rs. 15,500 (Best Price, MOP). Dissecting the handset’s features, there are a few issues like no support for XviD or DivX video codecs, average image quality and a display screen with a slightly low resolution. At the same time, if you can do with these minor issues, the Galaxy Ace is a decent buy, the interface is pretty smooth and the audio quality is great as well.
Excerpt: We just got our hands on the new Samsung Galaxy Ace which was announced back in January, and thought we would show you guys some hands on photos of the Galaxy Ace. The Samsung Galaxy Ace comes with a 3.5 inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels it comes with Android 2.2 Froyo and features a 5 megapixel camera.
Conclusion: * Android 2.2 Froyo OS * 3.5 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen display with 16M colors HVGA (320 x 480 pixels) resolution * Qualcomm QCT MSM7227-1 Turbo 800 MHz processor * Internal memory of 150 MB * 5 megapixel Camera with auto focus and LED Flash with face detection * 30fps WVGA Video recording * MicroSD card slot with support up to 32GB * Network support for HSDPA 7.2Mbps and quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900) * Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, GPS receiver with...
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Ace has good features for its price: a decent 3.5” HVGA screen, 800MHz processor, pleasing 5 megapixel camera, good build and, of course, Android 2.2 Froyo. However it fails unexpectedly where inferior phones have been known to deliver: disastrous video recording and poor codec support. But compromises are always a part of the deal in the midrange. The important thing is to have no regrets about the compromise you made.
Pros: Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA support, 3.5" 16M-color TFT LCD capacitive touchscreen of HVGA (320 x 480 pixels) resolution, 800MHz ARM 11 processor, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset; 278MB of RAM available to the user, Android OS v2.2 (Froyo) with TouchWiz 3.0 UI customization, Swype text input, 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash; Geo-tagging, face and smile detection, VGA@24fps video, microSD slot (up to 32GB, 2GB in box), Wi-Fi 802...
Cons: No shutter key for the camera, No support for Adobe Flash in the web browser, No ambient light sensor, No DivX/Xvid video support out of the box
Summary: The ringtones volume is ideal courtesy of a dedicated loudspeaker at the back and nice choice of melodies. The vibro is good and has above average power. This is a typical Samsung without any speech communication problems.
The Ace is priced at €320, which is not cheap for this model. HTC Legend is its direct rival with better design and Sense shell priced about the same.
Conclusion: Overall the Ace is a very strong entry from Samsung, but the exclusion of Office Mobile is very curious and it loses some points for the keyboard design. Other than that the Ace stacks up well with other Windows Mobile 6 Standard devices. Being a world phone is a major bonus, with even more points for an unlocked SIM slot. As we have come to expect from Samsung the build quality is top notch.
Pros: Dual mode CDMA/GSM for international use, Small form factor, Bright, crisp screen, Unlocked SIM, More memory than most WM6 Standard devices, Ultimate customization and endless third party support for WM6
Cons: Keyboard is cramped and keys are odd shaped, No Office Mobile, No GPS
