Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 preview: First look - read the full textWell, you’ve met the family, now here is one of the new kids on the block. Midrange Froyo deserts for all it is, and the Samsung Galaxy Ace leads the gang. In an attempt to bring smartphone sales even higher, Samsung is ...

I have Galaxy S and iphone, but i have to say that the Samsung has the best quality and speed. If these phones were cars, Samsung it will be Ford Mastang and iphone Alfa Romeo Brera. The Ace it a small mustung and I prefer this "ugly" Mastung :-p

I would buy it. Pocket freindly, Android, good camera with flash (finally). Galaxy S is a tablet-phone, this is a smart-phone.

gsmarena said that ace more powerful than the Optimus One. It has a bigger and more
responsive screen , a faster processor and a
better camera, at least on paper.
but they forgot to mention that O1 have a better battery, i bet it has:
1. better music experience than Ace,
2. better video recording,
3. better internal memory (200 MB),
4. divx out of the box,
5. N-Drive app out of the box (it's not free on the market),
6. 2GB MicroSD (over 1GB on Ace) and
7. portable Wi'-Fi Hotspot.

Insane how time flys, had this been a year ago this would have been a near high end device. This is nice to give someone as a gift I remember when I was looking for cheap Android phone for my friend the other day and the only good phone was the LG Optimus. The other phones didnt stack up so its nice to have some more options.

Great ! Welcome to Indonesia. Here, we don't care about apple. Price and value are our first priority.

OFcourse..... leave it to Samsung to copy the iPhone4 style.

High-glass front/back + uniform silver trim. Samsung is obsessed with copying iphone designs. Last batch of phones all look like iPhone 3G.

No flash support? You gotta be kidding me. Samsung sucks at creating mid-low phones.

I liked the phone, but I would be embarassed to use such a iPhone 4 copy.

The whole problem is this TouchWiz UI. It's ugly as hell !!

Is is time for an orange san francisco review yet? Orange san francisco / ZTE blade is one of the only cheap devices to come with 800 x 480 resolution screen yet numerous "mid range" phones with much lower resolution screens keep getting reviews or previews.

p.s. I am Spartacus

> In reply to hobot @ 2011-01-26 17:01 from JyxN - click to readYes I agree the built quality of the Galaxy Ace and Iphone is different. The Iphone was built with a design flaw (if you hold it a certain way it loses all of it's signal), and the Galaxy Ace does not have this as far I know (I am sure it would have been mentioned in the preview if it was the case).

> In reply to Connie @ 2011-01-26 15:05 from Nr@h - click to readYes, the iphone has a round home button. But that's the ONLY difference. All black front and rear, a single hardware button below the screen, metallic looking band on the sides - it's all there, just without the build quality.

Ace has a 3.5" display, not 3.2" please correct it.

It does not look like a Iphone 4 at all. The Iphone has a round home button if I am not mistaken.
