|If you are looking for an Android device that won’t burn a hole in your pocket, you should take a closer look at the Samsung Galaxy Ace. This phone comes at a reasonable price and it will offer you a number of interesting features, including a 5 MP camera and a 3.5 inch capacitive touch screen.
This phone has a built in GPS, compass, an accelerometer, and even a proximity sensor that will turn off the light when you move the device close to your ear. You can even connect other phones or devices to the internet through the Galaxy Ace, so this is truly a multifunctional Smartphone. If you have a laptop, you don’t have to worry about finding a Hotspot anymore, just pair it with your phone and you can surf all you want. However, there is no need for that because you can always go online directly from the Galaxy Ace. The touch screen responds to your movement fairly well, so typing an address and going through websites is not a complicated job. Once you flip the phone sideways, the full QWERTY keyboard will kick in and you won’t have any problems finding the right keys. The Swype technology offers suggestions, which are always dead on, so your job is even easier.
The operating system used by Samsung is called Froyp+ 2.2.1 and the Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset will offer 800MHz of processing power, which will keep the phone running smoothly and without any delays, even when you’re browsing the internet or running complex applications. You will also receive 278MB of RAM, which is more than enough for this device. All in all, you won’t feel the need for more processing power and you will never have to wait for the phone to open an application or perform any kind of action.
The Google apps suite will offer you various applications such as Google Maps, YouTube, and Gmail. You can download them in just a few seconds and you can also take a look at some of the other apps which will improve the capabilities of your phone. For example, DivX or Xvid content can’t be played out of the box, but there is an application for it. Unfortunately, Flash content is not supported and you won’t be able to do anything about it on the Samsung Galaxy Ace.
Pros and Cons
Unfortunately, this phone won’t record videos as well as you might expect. Also, the lack of Flash support is disappointing, which might be a problem for some people. If you overcome these two obstacles, this is truly a great phone.
