Samsung Galaxy Ace
Advantages: Great value, packs a punch
Disadvantages: None that I can think of
If there was an award for being the biggest fan of Samsung mobile phones, I would win it hands down. I have strayed to Siemens, Apple, Blackberry... but each time find myself running back to the humble Samsung.
The Samsung Galaxy Ace is the younger sibling of the Galaxy S, and really packs a lot of features into a small price tag.
The price of this phone is superb. It's affordable on Pay As You Go, and I managed to get hold of it on a pretty inclusive contract for £10 a month. And at a glance, you can't tell it's not an iPhone 4 or some other flashy, top of the range phone.
The design of this phone, I absolutely love. It's so sleek and smooth, it fits snugly in your hand and is easy to use. It has no keyboard so is entirely touch screen but I don't have a problem, it is easy to use. There are a few real buttons on it, chiefly the volume, lock, and camera buttons which are really handly for quick access. There is also a choice of two interchangeable covers for the back, a black and a white one, which is nice for when you fancy a change.
Possibly not the best choice of title, but you know what I mean. The phone uses Android, and I must confess before now I had never really seen Android let alone used it. And it is so simple. The menus are easy to navigate and the transitions are smooth. The phone can switch between landscape and portrait view, and the camera quality is amazing. Its not that high, 5MPs, but takes great photos.
Smaller, lighter, and I think more slick than the iPhone 4, this phone is a real winner next to high spec competitors like the aforementioned iPhone and top of the range HTC's. A great phone.
Summary: Samsung wins again.
