Advantages: Good wifi Connections, Slick, Iphone look-a-like. 5 Megapixel Camera, sophisticated design
Disadvantages: Short battery life.
I bought the Samsung Galaxy Ace few weeks ago and I must say It's not a bad phone.
The screen quality is a low-end TFT, and is poor compared to the Super AMOLED screen on the Samsung Galaxy S, which allows for crystal clear video playback, Unfortunately there's no HD video recording, but the five-megapixel camera works well as a happy snapper - it has several shot and scene modes, which can be fun to play around with!
On a side note, its actually quicker online via wifi than my pc, however there is a major flaw with this phone and that it does not want to support flash, this means that it is severely limited in its capability to view online TV and will not even receive online radio, until this problem is ironed out.
I do however like the thoughtful placement of the SD card at the right side and the putting of a slide door over the microUSB port, to the nice placement of the LED flash under the camera (so when you put it on portrait mode, the flash will be at the side of the camera), the use of sturdier gorilla glass on the 3.5" screen, and the inclusion of a white color option aside from the regular black one.
it is the camera and LED flash which really sets the Ace ABOVE even the Galaxy S (which regrettably, doesn't have any LED flash despite being 2x the cost of the galaxy Ace). All my pictures taken with the camera and flash are very good, with excellent detail and contrast. And the fast 800 mhz processor enables fast uploading of my pics to the web (600 mhz phones stutter when I try to do this often).
The wonderful ThinkFree editing app is pre-installed, which is a blessing, since I wanted a doc editor since I can't remember when, but all my past phones always DON'T HAVE ONE, ironically. Now, I can edit my job resumes in the privacy of my flat, and upload them to jobsites with no problem, using my phone. Same goes for emails.
It's a mixed review on the Samsung Galaxy Ace.
It has its pros and cons , just like every other phone.
Summary: A fair enough smartphone. Not the best one I've bought.
