Summary: I recently bought 2 of the Galaxy Ace as gifts for family members who were just starting out with smartphones. This phone covers the basics, you can send and receive calls along with messages, most applications I checked are compatible with the phone, camera is ok but not great. I am a self proclaimed phone junkie so I would never have this phone for my personal use but if I was starting out, this would be the phone to get.
Summary: The phone overall, its okay! Now please dont order this phone if your a social network junky or an on the fly kind of person. The phone runs a 800 Mhz processor and around 512 MB ram. Basically the phone is for everyday simply use. But your mail, whatsapp and such will work okay, but please dont expect to be running tweeter, facebook and skype at the sametime..
GOT A STOLEN PHONE SOLD AS NEW BY HASSLEFREE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
17 June 2013
Summary: I received this item (Samsung S5830EUBLK Galaxy Ace Android Powered Smartphone) around February. The condition of the phone was clearly stated as NEW on amazon.com. What I received, was an open box, with a phone that once turned on, was full of pictures and profiles (hotmail, gmail and facebook) that belonged to a french woman. The phone had not even been reset!
Excerpt: It's not the best of phones though I would recommend it as a 1st or 2nd phone. It lags quite a bit not for those who have had lots of smartphones or midrange smartphones don't use Internet on it with the default bowser
Summary: Very nice and practical basic android phone for the non sophisticated user . Easy to set up, fast response , good camera sharpness . Very good value for money. Only I wished it had a front facing camera for video conference. But for this you have many other Samsung options at a bit higher price.
