Samsung Galaxy Ace Review
Everything in this world has come up, and finding a good peek at the competitor is not bad. Apple product costs almost twice as much for the many who want to buy. New Samsung Ace completely plastic, plastic over the screen, too (in Galaxy S was glass). Good performance, the case is almost squeaks, no backlash.
Of controls at Galaxy Ace all pretty standard, a button on the right, a slot microSD, microUSB jack on top and a 3.5 mm jack, and a volume rocker on the left. What is good, memory card slot with a full “hot” replacement? And what is bad, as there is no camera button. The front panel of the center button to return to the main screen and on the sides of two sensors one is a context menu and the second is the return. Exactly the same as we have seen in the Galaxy S.
A normal TFT screen with a resolution HVGA not of the highest quality and the fastest processor at 800 MHz and the camera is a 5 megapixel with flash and even (in Galaxy S it is not), but the output video is just QVGA and with only 15 frame per second. All of the basic functionalities of the camera are available, e.g. panorama, and smile detection in Galaxy Ace.
There is Wi-Fi and GPS, has a 3.5 mm audio jack, have not gone Bluetooth and FM-radio and a very sensitive motion sensor. Samsung Ace features the special software platform Android 2.2, but in contrast to the same LG Optimus honest here support Flash to 10.1, which is important in addition, customization to be good. There TochWiz (true simplified – no effects and animation as the Galaxy S), and there is SWYPE software for viewing and documents.
A User’s Aspirations
What most of the Samsung Galaxy Ace users didn’t like is the lack of localized applications like widgets classmates, VKontakte that are already in LG. Also, for some reason, no codec DivX/XviD, though they were still in the Spica. Finally, the TouchWiz is inferior to the convenience and functionality of HTC Sense.
The exterior of the Galaxy Ace is not so attractive, so it is soiled model. The case is completely glossy, which is especially critical for the back panel – quickly paw prints are everything. Furthermore, the surface will wipe quickly.
