Samsung Galaxy Ace
Advantages: Not too expensive. Looks good
Disadvantages: Battery life is rubbish
I bought the Samsung galaxy ace in October as my old phone (also a Samsung) was a little bit out of date. Having had my old phone for 4 years Samsung was a brand I trusted to give me results and last. This phone has not disappointed.
I wasn't really fussed on the phone specs so went for a mid range phone. I'm not the type of person who can justify spending £400 on a phone. For what I wanted it for which was mainly going on facebook/ebay and to have a dabble with some apps this phone is perfectly adequate. The internet on it is pretty fast, in my opinion but I do live in the back of beyond so the broadband I'm used to is 2MB at best. For people used to faster internet then this may be a problem.
The phone itself is very good looking. It closely resembles an iphone in my opinion with a shiny black front with only one button. There are two buttons on the side one to control the volume the other to turn the phone off. The back of the phone is a non slip surface so you can put it down without worry. The touch screen is quite large, it is very responsive.
The camera is not the best at 5mp but it is perfectly adequate for taking snaps. I frequently use it as its easier than grabbing the camera. The mp3 function on the phone works as you would expect.
The only negative I've found about this phone is the battery life. It is genuinely appalling . It needs charging about twice a day.
All in all I would say that for a mid price phone this is definitely worth a consideration. It is quite robust and has survived being chewed on by my baby. The internet is fast. Downloading apps is easy. It looks nice. The camera is good. What more do you need from a phone?
Summary: I'm more than happy with it
