Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 Review: In Depth

Recombu
5 December 2013
  • Conclusion: While we don’t love its swollen physique, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 packs a great screen, zippy processor, good camera and a host of customisations inside the user interface that help in day to day use. Samsung’s skin, TouchWiz won’t be for everyone, but the version on the Galaxy Ace 2 is a huge improvement to that found on the original Ace. At £240, it’s also priced competitively giving you a whole lot of smarts for your stirling.
  • Pros: Sharp screen, Speedy processor, Solid camera
  • Cons: Uninspired design, Gingerbread, Small internal memory

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 review: Flying high

GSM Arena
13 July 2012
  • Conclusion: At the end of the review, we think we are ready to answer the two most important questions about the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 I8160. The first one's "Is it worth the asking price?" and it couldn't have been a more resolute "yes". Indeed, the new Samsung mid-ranger offers so much for its modest price tag that it's hard to resist.
  • Pros: Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support, 3G with 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, 3.8" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit PLS TFT touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels), Android OS v2.3.7 Gingerbread, planned Android 4.0 ICS update, Dual-core 800 MHz Cortex-A9 CPU, 768MB RAM, Mali-400 GPU, NovaThor U8500 chipset, 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and geotagging, Multi Angle shot, 720p video recording @ 30fps, VGA front-facing camera, Wi-Fi b/g/n and DLNA, Bui...
  • Cons: No Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, All plastic construction, NovaThor U8500 is the least powerful of the dual-core offerings on the market, No screen and capacitive key haptics

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 Review

Phone Arena
5 July 2012
  • Conclusion: The Galaxy Ace 2 could have become a bestseller for Samsung, with the notable exception of a more distinctive design. The compact size and good PLS LCD screen will be a boost for the everyday interaction with your smartphone, whether you are in or outside, and the dual-core processor under the hood will make sure you don't feel underpowered.
  • Pros: Excellent call quality, Easy one-hand operation
  • Cons: Camera is very slow to focus, Only about 1GB of user-available memory

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 I8160 review – monstrous specs, budget-friendly Android

Gadgetmania
23 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Samsung Galaxy Ace was one of those phones that made people fall in love with Android and for an affordable price too. The midrange handset competed with the likes of HTC Wildfire S and LG Optimus One but they didn’t stand a chance against its more powerful hardware, not to mention more stunning design – even though it looked a lot like an iPhone. Samsung decided to follow it up by releasing Galaxy Ace 2.

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2

CNET
8 February 2012
  • Summary: For pay as you go budget buyers, the Galaxy Ace 2 is a great all-rounder, with a dual-core chip and an excellent camera. It's not so competitively priced SIM-free or on contract so its appeal is limited. Android enthusiasts may be disappointed to hear it runs on Gingerbread software, rather than the newer Ice Cream Sandwich.
  • Cons: Android Gingerbread not Ice Cream Sandwich; Camera is slightly laggy.

  • Excerpt: As befits a budget smartphone, the Ace 2 is relatively light and slight. It measures 118.3x62.3x10.5mm and weighs just 118.5g. The more expensive SIII takes things up a notch in terms of overall size and weight, but is remarkably thin and light for a big phone, at just 8.6mm and 133g. It's chassis measures 71x137mm in 2D terms.

5 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Sitting firmly between entry-level devices and the mid-tier market, the Ace II X is a solid, though far from cutting-edge, mobile device. It features a 4-inch screen at 480-by-800 pixels, a 1-GHz processor, 4GB of storage and Android Jelly Bean. Support for lower bands of 4G LTE service provides snappy on the go browsing as well.
