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 Ace Review


This dual-mode smart phone offers an excellent keyboard and the ability to make GSM calls overseas, but it's lacking in features compared with similarly priced devices.

Responsive keyboard, Good RSS reader, GSM/GPRS mode for international use, Works as USB or Bluetooth data modem

Lacks Wi-Fi, Supports only 2GB and smaller microSD Cards, Proprietary headphone port, No instant-messaging client

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 Review


For a mid range Android smartphone, the Galaxy Ace starts off on a good note - good performance, expensive looks and decent specs. But it is let down by disappointing display quality and the fact that its TouchWiz 3.0 user interface (UI) isn�t very...

Interface is snappy, Good quality of external plastics used, Looks more expensive than it is, Touch screen is accurate, Good battery life

Disappointing display quality, Touchwiz 3.0 is dull and drab with nothing unique to offer, UI is same as less expensive cousins, Display lacks an auto-brightness mode, No dedicated camera key

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 Review


The Samsung Galaxy Ace is designed to be a budget Android smartphone, and I must admit I was pleasantly surprised with it, as it has a range of features that you would expect in a more expensive Android device. It definitely feels a lot better quality...

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...
