Samsung Galaxy Ace
3 October 2011
Conclusion: Would we recommend the Samsung Galaxy Ace? No, in most cases. There will be some people desperate to get their hands on a smartphone on a budget, but this is still not the phone to do such a thing. There are others out there that are cheaper and more powerful, and were brought out more recently too.
Pros: Compatible with Google Navigation, Easy to set up webmail, Light and feels good in the hand
Cons: Slow internet, Laggy and jerky response when swiping, Social media lacking, Low quality screen
Summary: If you’re in the market for a mid-range Samsung smartphone, with a decent camera, the Galaxy Ace could be for you. It packs in a lot for the money and is the star of the four new mid-range Android range. It can just about be looked upon as a mini Samsung Galaxy S, although Samsung now has the Galaxy S II with a newer version of the OS, dual-core processor and an updated TouchWiz user interface.
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Ace is powered by Android 2.2 (Froyo), which we had no problems with whatsoever. The UI was smooth and responsive and thanks to the Android Market Place, there is a whole load of different applications you can download. The Galaxy Ace comes with an FM Tuner application, which will work once you plug in some headphones; a great feature that I’d like to see on more smartphones.
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Ace isn't as spectacular as its name suggests but it is a competent budget smartphone. As ever, the Orange San Francisco makes for a compelling alternative thanks to its larger, higher resolution screen, but the Ace has a nicer design, faster processor and better camera.
Pros: Surprisingly fast interface, Stylish design, Easy to type on
Cons: Low resolution screen, No flash support in browser, Only runs Android 2.2
Excerpt: Samsung’s approach to Android smartphones in 2011 appears to be by market saturation, with a range of devices to suit all, from the low- to high-spec and the indeterminable in-between. The Samsung Galaxy Ace on review here falls into this middle space, not able to compete with the top of the line Samsung devices, but offering design and (some) specs that surpass some affordable rivals.
Pros: Great looking design, generous screen size, external speaker performance
Cons: Limited multimedia performance, low resolution video capture is behind the times
Excerpt: Available on Three a lot of people have already confused this with the Samsung Galaxy S II. Sure, it’s not as powerful as the S II and the camera isn’t as high resolution but hey, this is a good looking […]
