Seller, not the phone, should be seriously investigated prior to buying!
9 September 2013
Summary: First, the phone is an "international version"...Italian to be specific. Seller, Wireless Everything" failed to disclose this "little fact" and Amazon still allowed them to sell it. All...I repeat ALL...repairs and parts must be ordered out of New Zealand. (Samsung verified this fact as well.) That's going to be fun. My first impression of the phone has not changed...it's a nice unit and my wife loves it. It's the misrepresentation by this seller that has me so upset.
Summary: My first Galaxy Ace was 5 star excellent - What happened. All I can say is that this phone must have been a lemon. I absolutely loved my first one and was so happy with it I purchased the exact same one. The original cell phone came from a different seller but I don't see any reason for my problems with the phone. The light in the phone keeps dimming, I keep getting cut off from my calls, when I want to disconnect the screen is black and I can't see to disconnect.
Summary: I bought this phone thinking what a great deal for a mid-range smartphone and then found out that it would not support the 3G from T-mobile. T-Mobile uses the 1700/2100 mhz frequency for their 3G network. You need the phone to support BOTH frequency in order to get 3G. Maybe AT&T supports the frequencies on this phone. Check with carrier before buying! I had to return this and get a different phone.
Summary: I think its worth it for those of you who are planning one getting a samsung galaxy ace 2. I likie it so maybe you will too. It is sorda small but i think thats a good think cause it wouldnt be so easy to break it.
Summary: I've had this phone for 10 months, and around 4 months of use, I started noticing problems. Where it had been fast and responsive, and a generally good phone before, all of a sudden it became slow. The RAM was being eaten up by background running apps, and the fact the Android is now 4.4.3 makes everything difficult, since this phone is optimized for 4.0.
