Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 review: Ace in the hole

Saturday, February 26, 2011

Samsung Galaxy ACE can go a long way with a name like this, but it isn t that goes slightly longer than its convenient midrange site. You know, if you want the best seat in the House, you must move the cat. Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 is a feline droid black cat in Samsung's Android portfolio. And it spells bad luck for competitive mid-range droids is a force to be reckoned with in the world's smartphones.

With that kind of specifications, was Galaxy Ace gone for a high-end phone for some time now. So if your processing power and screen estate, haven t have risen sharply over the past year or so, Ess serves you well.

In fact with Froyo on a 800 MHz processor, good connection and screen size and resolution that was good enough for the first three iPhone, Samsung Galaxy Ace looks good.

The only drawback with the package is QVGA @ 15 fps video. That may be acceptable on a low-end dumbphone, but depressing in a mid-level Android.

Here's what is going on Ace's spec sheet.

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3 G support 7.2 Mbps HSDPA support 3.5-inch 16 M color TFT LCD touchscreen in HVGA capacitive (320 x 480 pixels) resolution 800 MHz ARM 11 processor, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset. 278 MB of RAM available for userAndroid OS v2.2 (Froyo) with TouchWiz 3.0 UI customizationSwype text input5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash.

So, the video is not good, but still the camera should do pretty well. Samsung's refined TouchWiz 3.0 with document editor and file manager of the box, get good scores for Galaxy Ace too.

The phone is quite compact and we would like in particular to new a rubbery textured reverse side. There's nothing to be concerned in terms of ergonomics and pocketability, but these definitely iPhone-ish look a little dubious.
