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), Scratch-resistant glass ; Android OS v2.3.7 Gingerbread, planned Android...

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...

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 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...

The Galaxy Ace 2 is the successor to the original Galaxy Ace and comes with a more powerful processor and a better screen.

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

No Ice Cream Sandwich software ; No Australian release details

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2

 

The massively popular mid-range Galaxy gets an update.

Decent screen ; Good camera with solid macro skills ; Wi-Fi Direct

Uninspired design ; Outdated OS version ; Autofocus can be slow

The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 offers significant spec upgrades over its predecessor, including a bigger screen and more powerful dual-core processor. It makes for a friendly and fairly feature-complete intro to Android. However, its OS is out of date,...

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 vs Galaxy SIII vs Galaxy Note II comparison review

 

Samsung's Galaxy range of Android smartphones and Android tablets are hugely popular. But the three Samsung Galaxy smartphones we compare here are very different animals. From the budget Galaxy Ace 2, through the iPhone-rivalling Galaxy SIII (or Galaxy...

In this world you get what you pay for, a phenomena of which smartphones are a good example. The Ace 2 is a cracking little smartphone for the price, but if your budget will stretch the to the SIII you won't regret the extra expense. Choosing between...

Not everyone wants to spend a fortune on a top-end smartphone, and Samsung and the like - with the arguable exception of Apple - know that. At the same time, budget phones can make big compromises for price. The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 is Samsung\'s stab...

Smooth and responsive performance, great looks and a decent screen make the Galaxy Ace 2 a Budget Buy
