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

TechRadar UK
11 December 2012
  • Summary: Tackling the space between the entry- and mid-market handsets
  • Pros: intuitive, friendly UI, impressive 5MP camera, zippy dual-core CPU, attractive, strong build, With a sleek, stylish design that is closer to the build quality and appealing feel of the former market leading Samsung Galaxy S2 than the budget likes of the Galaxy Y , the Ace 2 impresses from the off with a curvaceous finish that leads the way to an impressive collection of features. As the 800MHz dual-core processor runs the show with reality ease, the handset's inbuilt ...
  • Cons: Android 2.3 not 4.0, speaker placement, Samsung Apps offering, limited browser, Although this ease of use is appealing, it is hard not to be disappointed in Samsung's decision to fill the Ace 2 with the now dated Android 2.3 OS. Although not a bad setup, the lack of ICS innards makes the device feel dated before it is in full flow, and you'll have to wait for Jelly Bean. A largely impressive handset for the price, the Ace 2 could benefit from slightly speedier charge ...

  • Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 offers some welcome improvements to the original model with its beefed up processor and larger screen, plus its rather impressive camera. It's a shame that it's using an old version of Android but it still offers a pretty good spec for the price.
  • Pros: Dual-core processor, decent camera
  • Cons: Older version of Android, boring design

  • Conclusion: We like the Ace 2 a lot. It's a sensibly priced phone that, while not overflowing with high-end features, holds its own in a busy market. The screen is good, the build quality is excellent, and as a phone, it excels at the phone tasks that often get forgotten in reviews. It's a good size too, you can operate it easily with one hand - all too hard on big-screen handsets - and it fits in pockets and bags without any problems.
  • Pros: Decent price, sturdy, responsive, good battery life
  • Cons: Average camera, very limited internal storage

  • Summary: Surprisingly at this price, there’s plenty on offer from the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2. The touchscreen is a great size for surfing, texting and emailing, the five-megapixel snapper is impressive for a budget handset, and the dual-core chip handles most apps and games well.
  • Pros: Smooth TouchWiz UI, powerful budget chip, good-sized touch-screen, impressive five-megapixel snapper
  • Cons: Outdated version of Android
