Its not snapdragon, its novathor with mali gpu. See http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/NovaThor

Samsung have done a good job in upgrading ACE.But lack of duel SIM facility may pull its popularity down in India and China.There is also no mention about Flash player.
If its really snapdragon 8225 this will be amazing. 8225 uses cortex-A5 that is almost 3 times faster than cortex-A8 on the same clock speed.
See here : http://www.itproportal.com/2012/03/01/cortex-a5-cortex-a8-cortex-a9-contest-yields-surprising-results/
With the same 800Mhz for my defy, it will be 3 times faster; and with dualcore 800Mhz, it will be 4-5 times faster than my current defy. Of course this is CPU speed only, not GPU or I/O score.
Seems like it use snapdragon S4 8225 SoC with Adreno 203. I really wonder how is the performance and battery..
Does anyone know if it supports adobe flash? And what is the GPU model? Adreno 200? Adreno 205? SGX530? SGX540? Which one?
AnonD-672, 12 Mar 2012just dual core and that little extra ram is already worth the 2x price difference.. u r right
EMC, 12 Mar 2012If the price is above 15K, I would say better go for other phone. This is not work more than 1... morejust dual core and that little extra ram is already worth the 2x price difference..
We wait to see how this goes under review because Samsung's last review I read of a phone with a tft screen was pretty poor.
Sorry about oddly worded sentence :)
AnonD-5661, 12 Mar 2012I wonder why do many people buy these budget phones instead of buying old flagships models
after I checked the prices in other countries, it turned out that s1 costs a bit more in some countries than ACE2
but in my country (KSA) the pre order price of ace2 is a little bit more expensive than S1
but, I guess my argument is still valid coz the little price difference doesn't justify all compensations you'd make if you get the ACE2
I wonder why do many people buy these budget phones instead of buying old flagships models
e.g. the original galaxy S (still available in most countries,I guess)costs less than this phone and gives you a larger and much better amoled screen and 1ghzprocessor withpower VR gpu instead of this generic 800mhz one,ok I am aware it isn't dual core but you must know that the old hummingbird processor in S1 tweaked by intrinsity to outperform all cortex A8 SoCs.so it wont be a big difference moreover given the low res screen and the limited amount of ram in this ACE2 you will really enjoy s1 much more than this coz 99% of apps and games in the market work well on it and it has lots of custom roms (including ICS ones) unlike this crappy ace2 .
there is also alot of other better alternatives if you don't care about the OS ,Nokia N8 and Nokia C7(701)gives you absolutely best value for money beside their great built quality and durability (unlike the recycled 3rd grade plastic used in most of galaxies)
