Samsung Galaxy Ace Review

 

If Samsung was hiding a secret card up its sleeve, one with ambition to trump mid-range Android smartphones with a smart combination of price and features, the Samsung Galaxy Ace would be our first guess. Rather than shooting for the stars it offers...

iPhone-like looks; Above average camera for stills; Hot-swappable microSD cards (up to 32GB)

Poor video recording; Below average calling quality ; No Flash; No DivX/Xvid codec support out of the box

Finally, for a mid-range Android, the Galaxy Ace really ups the game with its 3.5-inch screen. However, it fails in two main areas – video recording and Flash support. If it were for these alone, the Galaxy Ace would still be a pretty strong contender,...

One Year Review: Samsung Galaxy Ace

 

After a year with the Samsung Galaxy Ace, I take a look at the phone in retrospect, comparing how it stacks up against its competition past, present and future, and examine it closely.

Samsung Galaxy Ace gets Hugo Boss makeover

 

The Samsung Galaxy Ace seems to be doing just fine in the market but to give it a little more spice and class to reach the elite pockets, the makers have gone on to introduce an alliance with clothing brand, Hugo Boss. The device will bring the...

Samsung Galaxy Ace review

 

Is the little brother in the Galaxy range an Ace up Samsung's sleeve?

Compatible with Google Navigation ; Easy to set up webmail ; Light and feels good in the hand

Slow internet ; Laggy and jerky response when swiping ; Social media lacking ; Low quality screen

UPDATED: The Samsung Galaxy Ace is still being touted as a top smartphone years after its launch, so we've updated our review accordingly. Should you consider it at all despite it's super-budget price tag?

Samsung Galaxy Ace Android phone

 

Samsung Galaxy Ace review: The Galaxy Ace is mid-range Android smartphone that offers a slick user experience, but is overpriced compared to its rivals

Comfortable design and build quality ; Slick user experience ; Swype keyboard

Comparatively expensive ; No Flash capability ; Low resolution screen

The Samsung Galaxy Ace offers a slick user experience and a comfortable design. However, it is comparatively overpriced compared to some of its rivals. We definitely recommend shopping around before choosing the Galaxy Ace as your next phone.

Samsung Galaxy Ace - Pocket-lint

 

Samsung's approach to Android smartphones in 2011 appears to be by market saturation, with a range of devices to suit all, from the low- to high-spec

Great looking design, generous screen size, external speaker performance

Limited multimedia performance, low resolution video capture is behind the times

The Samsung Galaxy Ace doesn’t really step out of its remit as a budget smartphone. It has many rivals in this area: the INQ Cloud Touch offers a similar range of specs but with a stronger leaning towards Facebook, then there are the likes of the HTC...

Samsung Galaxy Ace

 

Less the Ace of Spades, more the jack of clubs, this is a competent budget smartphone.

Surprisingly fast interface ; Stylish design ; Easy to type on

Low resolution screen ; No flash support in browser ; Only runs Android 2.2

The Samsung Galaxy Ace isn't as spectacular as its name suggests but it is a competent budget smartphone. As ever, the Orange San Francisco makes for a compelling alternative thanks to its larger, higher resolution screen, but the Ace has a nicer...

Samsung Galaxy Ace review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Ace is the latest in the company's Galaxy range - it's a mid-range Android phone that has a 3.5in capacitive touchscreen and a 5Mp camera. The Galaxy Ace performs well and has reasonable features, but we think it's overpriced...

The Galaxy Ace is a mid-range Android smartphone that offers a slick user experience, but it's overpriced compared to its rivals.
