Good: Good overall phone, sensitive touch screen, good camera resolution
Bad: low Internal memory space, freezes sometime, need to charge the battery nearly everyday
Comment: Overall I would say that this is a good Phone with a good resolution camera and LED Flash. It offers many apps such as Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Logo Game however you need a SD Card for these Apps and some apps will not save on the SD card and save on the phone memory but that already has a very low memory so this is the biggest issue as I keep getting warnings to my phone about the low internal memory.
Good: Easy to use, not complicated.
Bad: Lack of internal space, and battery, phone shuts down by it self.
Comment: I have this phone for over a year now, and although this phone is good, the lack of internal space is not good enough for me. In order to use apps, I had to uninstall my older apps, as I keep getting warnings that my space isn't enough. This phone mostly for people who wants to use the features available, in the phone and not download games which takes a lot of space. Another thing is the battery, I am on my second battery right now, as the first battery that came with the phone started to die out in less then 20 mins of using it after charging to 100%. However, this phone is easy to use, and small enough to handle, but it's not for people who likes to play games, as there is no space to download it, even with the SD card.
Good: Stylish looks, easy to use, good apps
Bad: Very poor battery
Comment: I have had this phone for a year now. It is a pretty good phone. It does everything I want it to, facebook, easy access to emails etc. The camera is pretty good for a 5mp. The battery is a major problem though, I charge it for most of the day yet the battery will still only last for an hour while I am out! I cannot remember the last time I could take a photo while I am out for the day as my battery is always flat! I have just ordered the nokia lumia 800 so lets hope it has a better battery.
Good: looks nice, cheap alternative, good camera
Bad: lack of internal memory, poor battery life
Comment: Its a good enough phone, but lacks memory so you have to choose which apps you need the most.
The most annoying thing about the phone for me personally is the fact that some of the better apps arent available for it eg Sky Go, Eurosport Player, Skype (video call feature).
Does all the basics well and rarely crashes, but the age of smart phones you want to be able to use the better stuff on it.
Good: Easy to buy
Bad: Limited phone memory, sometimes have to turn off and on to make phone call or text,
Comment: As then one has very limited memory, and most apps can not use the memory card, it limited the phone a lot.
Plus with mine one, sometimes need to be turned off and on to make phone call or text? Better phone cost ten pounds.
Good: Size and weight
Bad: Low internal memory
Comment: Although I get on ok with this phone, the lack of enough internal memory drives me mad. When updates arrive from FB, Google Maps, flashlight et al, they always fail with "insufficient space" messages. The only solution is to delete the app and reinstall.
Bad: Not much.
Comment: Swapped my iphone 3gs for the Ace and to be honest I haven't noticed the difference. I have a Nexus7 and because they are both android they get on well together.
Good: easy to use
Bad: internal storage
Comment: have had problems internal memory getting low but cannot delete apps that i don't use
Good: value for money

Comment: After having 7 samsung phones over the years I went for this one ..big mistake it is the worse yet...phone won't connect calls,switches off when battery is full on own,wake up to find a different date and time without changing them,takes forever to load camera,after making calls screen goes blank so I can not disconnect, the list goes on
