Review Samsung Galaxy Ace

Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830

Key features:

  • 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 user
  • Android OS v2.2 (Froyo) with TouchWiz 3.0 UI customization
  • Swype text input
  • 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash; Geo-tagging, face and smile detection
  • QVGA@15fps video
  • microSD slot (up to 32GB, 2GB in box)
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b, g, n and DLNA
  • GPS with A-GPS connectivity; Digital compass
  • microUSB port (charging) and stereo Bluetooth v2.1
  • Standard 3.5 mm audio jack
  • DNSe sound enhancement
  • FM radio with RDS
  • Document editor
  • File manager preinstalled
  • Samsung Apps brings a few nice apps for free
  • Accelerometer and proximity sensor

Main disadvantages

  • Dismal QVGA video recording @15fps
  • 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
So, the video is no good, but the still camera should be doing pretty well. Samsung’s refined TouchWiz 3.0 with a document editor and file manager out of the box score good points for the Galaxy Ace too.
The phone is pretty compact and we especially like the new rubbery textured back. There’s nothing to worry about in terms of ergonomics or pocketability, but those decidedly iPhone-ish looks are a bit questionable.
Estimated prices is about RM800-RM900
