Advantages: responsive screen, best mid ranged handset on market
Disadvantages: battery life poor, low memory but upgradeable
it is all about iphone these days and what can beat it, well for me this phone is just fantastic, ok it is not an iphone beater and has not got the quality feel of the iphone but this phone looks like the iphone three in every way
it is a mid range smart phone with an 800mhz processor operating on Android, a market which is fastly growing, i have owned this phone 2 months now and have been impressed, touchscreen is responsive with no lag experienced yet, comes with very little internal memory but has an expansion slot for micro sd card up to 16gb, the phone comes with a 2gb sd card which i have upgraded to 8gb
the screen on this phone is not as good as the Samsung Galaxy which boasts a super amolded screen but the screen looks sharp and as yet the screen has not attracted scratches as yet, i might ad that the screen does not seem to gum up leaving streaks on the screen like the HTC Wildfire done.
I must admit my phones gets simple usage standard phone calls to standard text and a bit of internet on the go but since owning this phone i have used far more features than i would have on a previous phone, would that be down to how simple the phone is i dont know but i do know that when i tried out the iphone it seemed to have an ease of use about it.
the battery life for this phone has been a bit poor to previous phones i have owned but besides this the phone certainly beats my previous HTC Wildfire which was a terrible handset which i would catogrise also as a mid ranged smartphone, although there is a years difference in handsets for me the Samsung Ace is a winner
all in all it is going to come down to what you are prepaired to spend on your contract and to how much money you are willing to part with for a phone.
i simply cant justify an i phone at over £35 per month with the cost of the handset on top and this is the reason i stayed away from the iphone so when i had been in the shop and seen the Galaxy ace it just reminded me on th iphone at less the cost, its no iphone but if you are looking for a contract between £15-£25 per month then this should be seriously considered
Summary: love the style, easy to use, iphone lookalike
