I am not a Samsung fan by any means, but this phone is pretty well balanced.
Screen Size: 4.0" - Most optimum size for one-handed use.
Screen Resolution: 800x480 - Enough for most purposes. 233 ppi not bad.
Processor - Dual core 1 GHz - Enough power for WVGA screen and not too tough on battery either.
Camera - 5 MP - Enough for most purposes.
Video - 720p - Enough for most purposes.
RAM - 1GB - Enough....well....more than enough
Front Camera - Yes
Weight - Right in comfort zone.
Internal Memory - 4GB - Sufficient as 64GB MicroSD supported. 8GB would have pushed the cost higher.
Battery - Okay this might have been better but still should get through a day easily.
Sensors - All important ones present.
Android Version - Latest
Specs-wise there are no faults. Design... it's another matter. If you can live with this design, it's an excellent phone. If not, go for Lumia 520. Most of the specs are similar. It has more internal memory but half the RAM (WP on 512MB is about as smooth as Android on 1GB though). Front camera is missing though, so could be dealbreaker for many.

this phone has everything expect GPU, and less battery life. I kind of like the because of the size. is not big and not slim width wise. Samsung is meant for Africa market. should be less than NGN 40,000 Naira
I hate Samsung now for not bumping up the battery to atleast 2000mAh. It's the only grievance looking at the specs. Whats 1500mAh these days when you are 24X7 connected to the internet. Just another phone from Samsung. Nokia L720 looks better with 2000mAh.
i got sick of samsung
every day new phones that look the same as the previous ones
nothing great in design or quality
just plastic toys to surf the internet
WOW, when you really think, Ace 2 can be better than Ace 3, because:
1. Higher ppi (246 vs 233)
2. Better display technology (PLS LCD vs TFT)
3. Much more optimized apps
4. Better battery life (Extra 256MB RAM and Dual-core 1GHZ instead of 0.8Ghz will make battery worse)
Only LTE version is better than Ace 2
Every update from android os, samsung have also new phone models to those updates. If a new feature for a phone was discovered, samsung have also new models. They do not care if the market was flooded with their phones. They do not care if they have new models every second.
