Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 - Not the Best in the Milky Way

 

Samsung has really hit it out in India. Right from budget handsets with features that are value for money, to high end smartphones with everything under the sun! Another segment that's pretty much dominating the scene is the mid-range segment. The...

The Galaxy Ace is priced very attractively at Rs. 15,500 (Best Price, MOP). Dissecting the handset’s features, there are a few issues like no support for XviD or DivX video codecs, average image quality and a display screen with a slightly low...

Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 preview: First look

 

Well, you've met the family, now here is one of the new kids on the block. Midrange Froyo deserts for all it is, and the Samsung Galaxy Ace leads the gang. In an attempt to bring smartphone sales even higher, Samsung is ...

Samsung has already entered both mid-range Froyo scene with the Galaxy S Giorgio Armani and the QWERTY-fied Galaxy 551. The S5830 Galaxy Ace is the company’s first Froyo device targeting the largest group of users.

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,...

Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830

 

The Samsung GALAXY Ace offers a premium experience with compact and comfortable 3.5-inch HVGA display, a 800MHz processor, voice search and ThinkFree Office document viewer.

Affordable; runs on Android 2.2 Froyo; compact and light; TouchWiz 3.0 interface; camera is decent for still photos.

Slow processor; limited on-board storage; QVGA quality video recording; low-resolution screen.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace is a very much a scaled-down version of Samsung's higher-end Galaxy phones. Its target definitely isn't the high-end user who is looking to upgrade their Android phone but rather those who are contemplating buying their first...

Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 Reviewed

 

We take a look at Samsung's new mid-range Android smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Ace S5380. We explore the Ace's design in detail in the first part of our review.

Samsung have made absolutely no effort whatsoever with the Samsung Galaxy Ace 5380. Whether it be in the design department, UI, OS and any other part, the phone has no new features, specs or ideas to present to the consumer at all. As a matter of fact...

The ever-expanding Samsung Galaxy series of Android smartphones expanded again today, with four new handsets filling out the bottom of the range, mostly due to hit the shelves sometime this quarter

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

Would we recommend the Samsung Galaxy Ace? No, in most cases. There will be some people desperate to get their hands on a smartphone on a budget, but this is still not the phone to do such a thing. There are others out there that are cheaper and more...

Samsung Galaxy Ace Android phone

 

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 5-m...

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 review

 

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 and the indeterminable in-between. The Samsung Galaxy Ace on review here falls into this middle space,...

Great looking design, generous screen size, external speaker performance

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

Ultimately, if multimedia isn’t important to you, then the Samsung Galaxy Ace offers the flexibility of Android effectively and in a clear and hassle-free package. But the Galaxy Ace doesn’t really offer up anything truly distinctive outside its good...
