The specs of it make it a year too late, except for ICS. But I disagree with your take on sola. Both phones are mid-range phones, probably borderline but both mid-rangers nonetheless. If you try to compare sola and Ace 2, they have almost the same specs. What makes these phones even is that Ace 2 trumps sola by having a larger screen and battery capacity, while sola has a faster processor (though I am not saying that it directly translates to a better performance than the Ace 2). Furthermore, both phones almost cost the same.
And yes, it is best to wait after a few months. This could also ensure any defects on the first set of phones initially released to be fixed, if there are.

Yes I know that I am whining here, but you have to admit that Ace2 is somewhat similar to neoV, albeit with a more powerful processor which I why I hoped that it would have been priced similarly. I am saying that Ace2 competing with Sola is not very logical, since Sola is definitely not a mid-range phone(at least in price - near 500USD). I feel that they are just using this as a reason to bring up the price of Ace2. Well I'll just have to wait a few months...
Anonymous, 26 May 2012In most cases 800 Mhz dual core is better than 1 Ghz single core.there is no difference when the phone is single core or dual core when you play game, the most important thing is the gpu, for gaming, better get the higher clock single core and good gpu, like galaxy w. but the good thing about the new galaxy ace 2 and xperia sola that has similar spec is, it already use the Processor cortex A9 dual core that made with 45nm, and use mali400, it will boast efficiency in battery, and for game you get the good all around gadget, not the best and not the worst. but for all days application with phone there will be no difference. just thinking the new one will support more features, that's way I'm thinking to get xperia sola (i'm using se live with walkman)
Samsung has a poor interphase xcpt s2 and s3 nd note. The transitions are boring and does not feel premium. the material quality and design is also not very good. Samsung focuses on high end devices and lower ones are made with poor presition. but HTC and sony and motorola makes more premium quality phones with better interphase animations etc. Samsung is stil growing and learning company. they should make even better phones to stay tough in market because the nokia reliability is still a far goal for samsung.
Hi friends I want to know from u that Is Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 launched in Delhi? If yes I want to know about the price of the phn.. Because I have to buy the phn in 2 or 3 days...plz reply me fast :)
Best phone for the price
Here in Thailand Ace Plus is 8900 bahts (230€) and Ace 2 only 9900 bahts(250 €), same as Xperia U.
Anyway i don't think i will get it, because i want autofocus when video recording. GSII maybe, if price goes down...
it,s probably like if 2x800mhz working together will put out far more proccesing power than a 1ghz single core see iphone 4 & 4s and it will be close to a single 1.5ghz think about rx8 1300cc x2 has the same hp with a car at 2800cc! The "dual" doesn't affect the clock speed but the combined power..

Though there are stores that may offer much lower prices than the official price tag, it should take two to three months before the prices go down to a reasonable amount. Also, if there are good competitors (for Ace 2, there are Xperia sola and One V), prices could go even lower than what consumers might expect.
Is galaxy ace 2 actually worth the money? It'll probably still be over 300USD at its lowest price currently, 100USD more than the original Ace. Not saying that they did not improve on the ace2, but I feel that as a "midrange" phone it's not very affordable to some. (this is also applicable to other phones such as sola, if that is considered a midrange device.)
Anonymous, 24 May 2012ace2 easy win over xperia u & sola.... 1- xperia sola & u non removable battery. 2- ... moreNot to mention standby time and talk time. Xperia Sola and U gives 1/3rd of that Ace 2 offers. What a shame Sony! A great design has been wasted.
Babblu, 25 May 2012which CPU is better 800Mhz Dualcore (or) 1GHz single coreIn most cases 800 Mhz dual core is better than 1 Ghz single core.
pupil, 23 May 2012hey...man...agree with u..I wnat 2 know that whether the ace 2 has dual core I mean 800+800mhz... moreNo it's not 800 + 800 = 1600 MHz nor it's 400 + 400 = 800 MHz. It's two 800 MHz CPU. That means two CPUs with same clock speed.
iChip, 25 May 2012 is it support adobe flash player??Yes it supports the latest version of Flash player. That was practically the first thing i put on it. Tested it with BBCiplayer and worked fine.
userLWw, 25 May 2012is supporuadobe flashplayer?Correction "Does it support Adobe Flash Player?",
and the answer will be "Yes it does, Adobe supports Flash Player for Android since version 2.2"
why not bring the bands 850/1900 for Latin America would be a big fail, the majorities of operators here work at these frequencies.
