Good: It looks good, Android and its useful for all purposes
Bad: There is no flash, Battery life(?)
Comment: Recently, my phone broke (Nokia 5230) and I have been looking for a new one, this phone seems to be perfect in every way, but I've heard that the battery life is not good. I checked on the website and it said the battery life was more than my original phone, but I'm still not sure.
Overall it seems like a good phone though. :-)
Good: pretty much all of it
Bad: the screen resolution, flash support
Comment: I was so excited when I got my Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini pro and now I hate it. This galaxy ace looks pretty good for it's price and although the screen is small and low-res compared to super-smartphones, it is an inch bigger than this one and double the resolution so im seriously thinking about it.
Good: The reviews seem find
Bad: Flash? :oS
Comment: I have a Galaxy Europa and that seems ok, I just thought I could change my contract and this came up cheaper. Is it really that bad? Being a techophobe I'm not sure what flash is? Is it something to do with the camera or flash use on the web? My Europa has a 3mp camera, surely the Ace is a bonus in that dept. Battery usage on mine, depends on how often I use Wi-Fi, other than that it's ok.
Should I change or stick to the Europa? Comments accepted.
Good: Battery life, sound, good homescreens.
Bad: needs a reboot daily.
Comment: The phone randomly switches itself off daily, today 3 times in an hour, I have to hold the power button for a minimum of 10secs to get it to reboot, can't put up with that any longer!
Good: VERY EASY TO USE
Comment: I have had the samsung ace s5830 for two week now. It is so easy to use. Lots of apps to download free on the market anroid app, its amazing. I have live wallpaper fish swimmimg on my screen, its very soothing. If your like me and need a easy phone to use then this is it, I am over 50 and managing to do every thing, all though am still finding things now. The volume is great and brightness. Txting is made simple and you can have the main apps you use on your front screen ready with just two touches.The camera and video are amazing and simple to do. I have just down loaded lots of songs and added them as ring tones for different members of my family. Which was very east to do. The lay out on this phone is brilliant every thing is at hand so quick.I have a hugh clock on the main screen when I turn my phone on as my eye sight not that good. This phone is suitable for any age. There is nothing bad to say about it, so if you thinking of getting one I hope this has helped. Thankyou for reading.
Bad: It's puny
Comment: Not only does it not have flash, I now find it won't play audio files in WMA format.
Good: Its beautiful sleek cover is very appealing, it has many options and sounds great!
Bad: I dont think theres anything that bad!
Comment: Nothing bad I know about, but then they're not exactly gonna point out the faults are they? I dont think people should fuss about no flash, who needs it? Just say ''Okay, the photo has been taken now.'' or something, lazy! Better than a bad timing flash isnt it? So it looks like an iPhone. It literally is an iPhone/iPod Touch anyways, but thats a GOOD thing! Stop making it seem so bad, its actually something worth praising. I think this is a great phone because it has Apps, so they're not really needed, so dont get the phone then idiots. It has anything you could ever need/want in anything. So no BBC iPlayer? What, you lived in a rock for your whole life, dont know what a TV is? Its a phone. You use it for calls and texts, the rest is just add ons! And when you dont play games ALL the time, im sure it will help. I hope I sent some sense into you.
Good: It's the best mid range android phone around!
Bad: No Flash!
Comment: It's funny some people upset by the fact that you can't use the BBC I player on it....Who watches BBC Iplayer on their mobile anyway!! I might watch the odd youtube video but I can't be bothered watching a whole episode of Doctor Who on my mobile...that's what a TV is for!!
I'm really pleased with it, sure it looks like the IPhone 4 but everything I needed in a phone is in the ace, it's sleek and stylish for the price and out of all the mid-range android phones, it's best for someone who is on a budget, the phone is like those who buy their clothes at Primark, they look fashionable but they didn't spend loads of money on it!!
Good: Fits in the hand to throw at people to attract there attention.
Bad: Internet to slow to use. Signal strength poor , volume to low, sound quality poor Battery life poor.
Comment: Have not bothered to try other features on phone as I know I will be disappointed.
Good: Low Price
Bad: No Flash Player
Comment: one of the Best android phone in Samsung
