Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 review: Flying high

 

With the Galaxy S III busy grabbing the headlines, a midrange smartphone has been making its way to a number of markets without much fanfare. But you can bet the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 won't settle for the role of just another sequel. It has a chance to...

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...

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

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".

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 I8160 preview: First look

 

The original Samsung Galaxy Ace is now an entry level device at best, pushed down the ranks by the weight of two sequels. The Galaxy Ace 2 is next in line and we're talking a proper mid-range device this time. This dual-core smartphone will win no...

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 Review

 

The original Ace was a very decent phone for its bucks last year, and the Ace 2 is quite on the way to cover that ground this year as well. It has a decent size screen with good resolution, slightly underclocked yet dual-core processor, and 5MP cam...

Excellent call quality ; Easy one-hand operation

Camera is very slow to focus ; Only about 1GB of user-available memory

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...

The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 is an elegantly simple smartphone with a 3.8-inch LCD touchscreen display with a resolution of 800p. This minimalist design leaves only a few external buttons and comfortable round edges, so it's easy to handle in your palm and...

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 - Affordable Galaxy

 

Looking for an affordable phone? The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 is one such option, coming in with a 3.8-inch WGVA LCD display, a dual-core 800MHz processor, 768MB RAM, 4GB of internal storage, 1,500mAh battery, and a 5-megapixel camera. Check it out after...

Decent battery life ; Good performance ; Affordable price

Limited internal memory space ; Iffy white balance in photos ; No news of update to Android 4.0 or 4.1, currently stuck on 2.3

For its price, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 is a very decent device. It tops, albeit narrowly, the cohort in both battery life and processing benchmark results. While its 5MP camera offers good amounts of detail, the white balance is iffy. The device might...

Samsung Galaxy Ace II X

 

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....

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 review

 

Tackling the space between the entry- and mid-market handsets

intuitive, friendly UI ; impressive 5MP camera ; zippy dual-core CPU ; attractive, strong build

Android 2.3 not 4.0 ; speaker placement ; Samsung Apps offering ; limited browser

Adding to its expansive collection of Galaxy-branded, Android-filled smartphones, Samsung has reignited its Galaxy Ace sub-franchise with the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 tackling the space between the collection of dedicated entry-level and mid-market handsets.

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 - Pocket-lint

 

If you're about to buy a mid-range phone, then you'll more than likely be glad of the help from sites such as Pocket-lint, because it is, without doubt,

Decent price, sturdy, responsive, good battery life

Average camera, very limited internal storage

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...
