Samsung Galaxy Ace 2
Advantages: good camera, quick acess to google play
Disadvantages: sometimes slow to turn on
I have recently purchased the Galaxy Ace 2, due for the need of a good, but cheap phone. Although this was phone was relatively low in price I would argue that it is no worse than higher costing phones of its kind. This phone uses Android technology, which I have found very easy to use, due to its simplicity. I found it very easy to set up a link to my email address and now there is a small icon at the bottom of one of my 7 home screens that allows me to view my latest 3 emails without having to click on anything.
One feature that I don't really rate is its 7 home screens, although easy to view (simply scroll across with your finger) they do seem slightly unnecessary, due to such a detailed and accessible menu screen which allows you to view and select all your apps. Because of this I only use two of the home screens, leaving the others redundant. It can sometimes take a long time to turn on and off, which is also a hastle. When you want to turn the phone off and clicked on the phone off button, you may be fooled into thinking that you've now turned your phone off, this is not the case: your phone starts to shut down and then will come up with another message checking that you want to turn it off. I tend to throw my phone in m bag when its switiching off which led the phone staying on and the battery (although long lasting) being drained, the first few times I did this.
One feature I like is the mini slide show of your pictures that can be set up on half of your home screen. It doesn't show all your pictures, just the ones that you want to see, which will prevent any embarrassing a forgotten photos popping up in-front of the family. Moreover, the touchscreen is not too touch sensitive, that you end up clicking on things you didn't intend on pressing, and isn't too stiff that you can never click on what you want.
I have found this phone really easy to use and would highly recommend it. I only bought it because of the price, expecting a poor quality phone and was pleasantly surprised with how good this phone actually is. If you want value for money this is definitely the phone to get. If you want all the technology phones can give, I would suggest a Samsung S4 or phone of similar calibre.
Summary: Definatley value for money
