    Overview Image

    Samsung Galaxy Ace

    An excellent starter smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Ace is also great as a spare phone. With a great design and impressive feature list for the price, it's practical, easy to learn and use, and has a strong 5MP camera and bright touchscreen.

    Overview Image

    The essential tech specs.

    Inside the Samsung Galaxy Ace is a 1,350mAh battery that powers the phone on standby for up to 420 hours and 6.5 hours for calls. The software in the Ace is Android Gingerbread 2.3, the most popular version, and it still has access to over 850,000 apps. The 800MHz processor is plenty fast enough for most activities, and the 3.5" screen is good for its class. A resolution of 320x480 gives 165 pixels per inch (PPI), while the 5MP camera is also good and sharp. Built-in memory is 158MB, but there's space for a microSD card (sold separately) up to 32GB for more space for photos and your music.

    Overview Image

    5MP camera.

    Capture the world around you in sharp 5MP photos and videos. The dual LED flash ensures that your photos stay well lit and clearly visible, even when you take them in low lighting conditions. You can then quickly and easily share your snaps via Facebook™ or YouTube™.

    Overview Image

    Samsung services.

    With access to the Samsung app store and the exclusive Samsung social widget, it's easy to immerse yourself in apps, chats and updates from your favourite social networks. Facebook™ posts, Twitter™ tweets, calls and texts are all delivered to your screen throughout the day. There's also the Google Play™ Store, home to 850,000+ apps. It's also got thousands of films, magazines, books and music tracks, so you'll always be entertained.

    Overview Image

    Easy messaging with Swype™.

    Galaxy Ace comes pre-loaded with Swype, which lets you create messages and social updates just by sweeping your finger across the keys in one continuous motion. Swype cuts the fiddly bits of typing out, so you can spend more time chatting and less time typing.

    Battery life and operating system

    Battery size (in mAh) 1,350 mAh This is the amount of electric charge in the battery of the device, measured in millampere-hours (mAh). In general, the more mAh, the longer your device will last on battery power, although it does depend on usage and the power demands of the device.

    Screen sharpness 165ppi The ppi (pixels per inch) is a measurement that takes into account the size of the screen and the resolution to give a sharpness rating. It can be compared across devices – the higher the ppi, the sharper the screen is, making it better for high resolution content and reading.

    Front facing camera None Capture self portraits to use as your profile pics or share with friends. If your device supports video chats you can also use the front facing camera as a handy web cam, for face-to-face calls. Generally, the more megapixels (MP), the better the quality of the images you’ll get.
