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...

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

 

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...

Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 review

 

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.

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

 

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

There are very few smartphones at this price which offer 4G, and along with a decent UI and battery life the Galaxy Ace 3 is a good value handset.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 has its flaws, but its recent price drop makes it much better value than its budget 4G competitors

Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 review

 

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

In summary, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is a decent budget smartphone. It feels responsive – performance is as good as it gets at this price – and it has a lovely display and plenty of features. If you fancy 4G on a budget, it’s only a whisker behind the...
