Review Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 GT-S7275R Smartphone

 

Hot smartphone. Samsung is offering the Galaxy Ace 3 GT-S7275R for less than 260 Euros (~$352) but this is no cheap piece. In fact, we are surprised by the high quality of the 4-inch smartphone which even offers an LTE module. ...

High-quality workmanship; System performance is good enough for all the latest games and apps; Bright display; Fast internet connectivity thanks to LTE; Stays cool; Battery can be removed; Good run times; Cheap

Average camera; Relatively low resolution display; Too power-hungry while off or in standby

LTE for this price is a real exception and deserves a lot of praise.

Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 review: Minor league

 

The Galaxy Ace 3 arrives as Samsung's latest entry into the popular affordable Ace lineup, and targets cost conscious buyers with a competitive Android version and variants which include a vanilla 3G version and either dual SIM support or LTE...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE; dual/quad-band 3G with HSPA ; Quad-band LTE support (for LTE version) ; 4" 16M-color WVGA capacitive touchscreen; 233ppi ; Android OS v4.2.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz UI ; Dual-core 1GHz (3G) / 1.2GHz (LTE) Cortex-A9 CPU,...

Very minimal upgrades over predecessor ; Low internal storage ; Tired and exhausted design, no differentiation whatsoever ; No Air View, Air gestures or Multi-view

Looking at the Ace 3 merely from a specifications standpoint, it's hard to see it as a very worthy upgrade over the already excellent Galaxy Ace 2. After all, for a device that follows its predecessor by more than a year, you'd expect more than merely...

Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 Review

 

Samsung's lower midrange champion, the Galaxy Ace line, got a third generation entrant this year with the aptly named Galaxy Ace 3. It is not a huge upgrade over its predecessor, however, as is the habit with Samsung's annual updates, and the phone...

Good picture quality ; Good call quality

Very noisy indoor video capture ; Feels a bit slow at times

When Samsung slapped the slogan “Enjoy the New Mobile Essentials” on the Galaxy Ace 3, it meant it. The phone is a very mild upgrade over its predecessor the Ace 2, and only the LTE version offers more internal memory and a faster 4G radio, which will...

The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is here, but just how different is it from some of Samsung's other midrange devices? Find out in our review!

I’ll admit it: it’s getting tough to figure out who all these different Samsung phones are for. Is this a good fit for someone? Yeah, I’m sure, it’s just with so many other similar phones available it’s hard to make a specific recommendation.

With decent battery life, a bright screen and 4G the Ace 3 is a strong contender

Bright Screen ; Decent Battery ; Intuitive UI ; 4G

A little heavy ; Awkward keyboard ; Disappointing Camera ; Not HD

The Galaxy Ace range has traditionally been a lower-powered and lower-priced, and this has continued with the Galaxy Ace 3.

Its 4G support was once appealing, but you can now buy better 4G phones for even less

Samsung Galaxy Ace 3

 

Samsung's £200 4G smartphone is no match for the Moto G.

Supports 4G, MicroSD card support, Clean user interface

Slightly sluggish performance, Average camera, Dated design

Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 review

 

The Galaxy Ace 3 has an adequate set of specs for the price, but neither its screen, software or performance match the Motorola Moto G's, which costs half as much. Unlike the Moto G though, the Ace 3 does offer 4G and expandable storage -- the only...

4G connectivity ; Expandable storage ; Samsung stylings

Screen and specs fall short of much cheaper Moto G ; Limited on-board storage ; Bundled Samsung software could be confusing for new users

Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 Review: In Depth

 

"4g hardly available in my area. Battery life awful. To sensitive to touch. Sluggish on 3g. Prettypoor effort from samsung.wish ld got a motorola."

Highly customisable user experience ; Removable storage and battery ; Solid build quality ; 4G connectivity

Inconsistent performance ; Unimaginative design ; 4G use cripples battery life ; Display could be brighter

Motorola’s ‘exceptionally powerful, exceptionally priced’ Moto G has also shaken things up in the mid-range market and in its wake, made phones like the Galaxy Ace 3, less relevant. The Ace 4 will have to offer more for less, and right now, the Ace 3...

Samsung Galaxy Ace 3

 

We liked the original Galaxy Ace when it first appeared three years ago, but times have moved on, and Samsung has now released the third version of the handset. The Galaxy Ace 3 may bear the same family name, but it has changed dramatically.

Samsung’s pocket rocket delivers plenty of power and a bucket-load of features, including 4G support and NFC, at a temptingly low price
