my Samsung has a full bar for signal but it wont let my call people or the network wont work so I think the phone is crap
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is a terrible phone, one of the worst i have ever owned.
Phone is incredibly slow and laggy. Touch screen sensitivity is so poor 9/10 times it will launch the wrong app instead one touched. With apps taking a painful eternity to launch and run.
The poor sensitivity of the screen makes texting and emailing almost impossible.
Bluetooth is poor and wifi connectivity is crappy at best and often gets dropped by the and then gets marked as not stable to use.
Battery life is poor these phones get incredibly hot when used for GPS / Calls or Data and battery life just dissapears befoore your eyes.
Slow I have never seen a phone so slow as this one. Its factory 4GB micro SD card is too small to be on any real use.
Phone crashes or freezes almost daily forcing a restart, or having to take the back off pull the battery out in order to reboot the phone.
After three years of this phone constantly annoying me, I finally decided to fix it permanently by taking to it with a heavy metal mallet.
My Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 no longer gives me any problems.
I would advise people to steer well clear of this phone its simply not up to the of modern smartphone use.
I own this phone for 2.5 years. It's prettty endurable phone. Drops it for like 2 times while I running and a bunch of times from standing still but it still works like a charm. But I have to move on because 2 main reason: laggy as hell (mainly because of weak Cpu (both 3G and LTE)) and battery life
I cant play Candy Crush Saga on my Ace 3. It starts loading... and then close. I also remove and then again reinstall but the problem persist. Any suggestions???
good phone for good price. everything working smoothly. value for money.
Anonymous, 26 Dec 2015Why cant I send and recieve photos on my ace 3, I have been told to go back to factory setting... moreIf you hold down the power button it comes up with an option for data network. You just have to select that and turn it on.
The Ace3 is a great phone. It does absolutely everything I need from a phone, without being a bulky pocket-full. In 18 months it's been entirely reliable.
The only disadvantage is battery life. If used only for phone & text, then no problem.
But if using internet or some apps (such as SatNav) battery life can be rather short, to the point that I've invested in an extra battery and a mains charger for it, so that I've got a battery on standby just in case.
And that's it - I don't need geeky stuff like KitKat (whatever that is) or any of the other trendy rubbish in the reviews. It does its job admirably. Marks: 8.5/10
Why cant I send and recieve photos on my ace 3, I have been told to go back to factory setting as it's a fault with the software, that means I will lose every thing on my phone so I don,t think that is the answer. Any suggestions?

Yes I can relate to what you are saying. There is so much information on this phone if you press the incorrect buttons you are up the creek. Go into google there is actually a manual for phone users what I did whenever I had a workman came to the house and do work I asked him a question and learnt the basics very quickly. A handy apps when travelling overseas is I translate.
I was stuck at Genoa solo no one spoke English and I was able to key in the question in English and showed the person the Italian translation it was great.
The sellers are keen to sell the phone but if you have ever been in a Telstra shop you are allocated fifteen minutes to ask a question.
I have just purchased the galaxy Ace 3 from Telstra. I would like to know how to use it. Telstra salesman said, "Just play with it!" That's great if you know the game plan. it is completely foreign to me, and I would like some instructions on how to access all it's amazing features which just come up on the screen with no explanation as to where to go. Why is it so hard to purchase a mobile with instructions on how to use it?
