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 review: Ace in the hole


The Samsung Galaxy Ace can get far with a name like this but it isn't going any further than its comfortable midrange spot. You know, if you want the best seat in the house you need to move the cat. The Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 is a feline droid – the...

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA support ; 3.5" 16M-color TFT LCD capacitive touchscreen of HVGA (320 x 480 pixels) resolution ; 800MHz ARM 11 processor, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset; 278MB of RAM available to the...

No shutter key for the camera ; No support for Adobe Flash in the web browser ; No ambient light sensor ; No DivX/Xvid video support out of the box

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...

Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830


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...
