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 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

A warning signal to its handset competitors, Samsung's reign of power is quickly moving away from the one-off flagship Galaxy S devices, with the Ace 2 firmly rooting itself as a mid-market challenger with a near budget price point that will appeal to...

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 preview: The Galaxy Ace 2 comes with a more powerful processor and a better screen


The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 is the successor to the original Galaxy Ace. It improves on the original thanks to a better screen with a higher resolution, more internal memory and a bigger battery. The fact it comes without Ice Cream Sandwich software,...

Improved screen, More memory and bigger battery, Dual-core processor

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 review


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, the most confusing part of the market. At the high-end, with phones like the Samsung Galaxy S III,...

Decent price, sturdy, responsive, good battery life

Average camera, very limited internal storage

It's not the cheapest, it's not the most expensive and it's not the worst performer, nor is it the best. The Ace 2 is middle of the road, but that's a good thing. It's solid, works well and lacks the nonsense that drags other phones down. If you're...
