Samsung Galaxy Ace Lafleur
Advantages: Similar design to Iphone 4, light-weight, easy to set up and use.
Disadvantages: Slightly slower internet browsing than some of the more expensive smartphones
After managing to break my top of the range contract smartphone and having limited cash I needed a reasonably priced replacement!
I trawled the phone shops with my unwilling husband all morning before I settled on the very feminine Samsung Galaxy Ace La Fleur model. Having previously owning two Samsung smart phones and being highly satisfied with them swayed me towards this brand.
Inside the compact packaging is the phone, (which is pure white with a silver floral design in the top left corner and La Fleur in the bottom left corner, the reverse of the phone is largely covered by a silver floral design) a mains power cable (charger,) battery, quick start guide, a USB cable, 2GB Micro SD memory card, an SD card adapter and a pair of hands free black headphones.
Finding my way around this phone was easy and I particularly like the qwerty keyboard for texting.
It is both impressive to look at and to use. Appearance is very similar to the Iphone 4.It has everything you could want in a smartphone, including an Android operating system, GPS / Geo tagging, 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, touch screen, Bluetooth and 3G / Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n capabilities.
Powered by an 832 MHz CPU processor, this Samsung Galaxy smartphone delivers a smooth and efficient performance.
There is a Social Hub which incorporates social networking, email and instant messaging.
As for media, it plays both audio and video perfectly. There is also a built in FM tuner.
The 3.5" TFT LCD screen is clear, touch sensitive and easy to use in all lighting.
The 5MP camera takes clear, crisp and sharp, quality pictures, which can be uploaded to your computer or laptop using the USB cable. You can also change the setting from camera to video mode.
The battery lasts a day and my phone is constantly on and more often than not in use. I charge it each night.
This phone comes preinstalled with all the usual apps; Youtube, Maps etc and there are also Samsung apps and Playstore from where you can choose from thousand of apps which are either free or to buy.
Like most phones the pre installed ringtones are not up to much but it is easy to upload music from your computer to the phones music player and set a song of your choice as the ringtone.
If you are something of a deep sleeper then set the alarm to the Rooster ringtone, it wakes me with a start every morning!
One nice feature is that to unlock the phone you simply swipe the screen, there is an automatic lock feature or you simply press a button on the right hand side of the phone to manually lock it.
The notifications panel at the top of the screen is another great feature as when you have a new email, missed call, text etc it appears here and you simply drag the notification panel down and touch the message to be taken straight to the correct app.
With its compact design and tons of powerful features, Galaxy Ace La Fleur is sure to appeal to app lovers, internet and social networking addicts and fashionista's of all ages.
Summary: One for ladies of all ages. A great value for money phone
