Excerpt: This is a global GSM phone. It can be used with T-Mobile USA and AT&T, but without 3G. If Samsung was hiding a secret card up its sleeve, one with ambition to trump mid-range Android smartphones with a smart combination of price and features, the Samsung Galaxy Ace would be our first guess.
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.
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 …
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 *...
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...
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 ...
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.
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.
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
Summary: Samsung's latest budget device, Galaxy Ace captures the imagination of the budget smartphone users and iPhone craver's. Packing in all the essentials at a price that is hard to find, the Korean giant has once again proved why it is touted as the world's largest consumer electronics company.
