- Excellent camera with a 13 megapixel sensor
- Super bright AMOLED full high definition screen
- Super fast quad core processor
- Some user interface issues but hopefully they will be fixed with a software update.
- As the 5th update of the galaxy phones we would have preferred an edge to edge display design.

If you are looking for a Samsung Galaxy Ace review, then in this article we are telling you absolutely everything you need to know about this awesome budget smartphone. From A to Z we have got all the details and specs on the Galaxy Ace, so before you think about buying, read on to find out if this is the phone you have been looking for.
Samsung Galaxy Ace Review - The Intro
There are many great mobiles on the market these days, but most of these new mobiles have jaw dropping prices. Who can afford to spend £500 or £600 on a new smartphone? Most of us are looking for something much more reasonable than that, and that is why we are giving you this review.
As far as features for money go, the Samsung Galaxy Ace has it all. After all, just because you do not want to spend a fortune, does not mean that you want to compromise on performance. No one wants to buy a dud phone which conks out on them at the first opportunity.
The Galaxy Ace is part of Samsung's bestselling Ace series of budget mobiles. Whilst the company might be better known for their high end Galaxy phones, Samsung make some pretty impressive budget phones too, and the Galaxy Ace is one of the original models, and one of the best too. You can read more about Samsung and their line up here.
Samsung's Galaxy Ace Out of the Box
Enough generalities though, let us take a look at just what exactly makes the Samsung Galaxy Ace such an awesome budget phone. We are going to lead you through the specs so you can see just what you are getting for your cash.
We need to start with what is under the hood, since a mobile's processor is what is going to really give you good performance. The Galaxy Ace has 278 MB of RAM and an 800 MHz single core processor. Those numbers might not mean much to you, but rest assured that the kind of power and speed you are going to get are going to be more than enough to perform every day smartphone tasks.
On top of this processing power the Galaxy Ace is running an Android operating system, specifically the 2.3 Gingerbread version. This means that you are going to get great customisation options, as well as a solid and dependable operating system which is easy to use and does not steal a lot of RAM to use.
What about the screen though? Screen specs on a touch screen phone are obviously going to be important to you. The Galaxy has a three and a half inch display made of tough Gorilla Glass. This gives you a nice amount of space for reading and typing, whilst still keeping the Galaxy small enough to keep in your top shirt pocket, which makes a nice change when you think about carrying one of those big, modern phablet phones around with you.
A camera? Of course! What modern smartphone would be complete without a great camera to take your pictures with. The Galaxy Ace has not only a solid 5 MP camera, but you are also going to be getting an LED flash as well as autofocus, so you will get the perfect picture every time, whether you want to preserve a memory or just post to Facebook.
If you are taking pictures then you are going to want to have some space to store them on, of course. You will get only 158 MB of internal storage on the Ace, which is not much. You do get up to 32 GB of storage on a Micro SD card though, which you can buy pretty cheaply, and the Ace will come with 2 GB of external storage included.
Money - The Important Factor
We are not done with the Samsung Galaxy Ace yet, but let us interrupt ourselves just for a moment to talk about the best feature of the phone- its price tag. If you want to pick up the Ace SIM free you will pay only £120. Can you believe that? It is one of the cheapest smartphones around.
Even better, if you are thinking about getting your phone on an incentive contract, then you can get the Ace for a mere £7.50 per month. That is a contract with Talk Mobile and it also includes one hundred calling minutes, a whopping three thousand text messages and a 250 MB data limit.
If you pay just £1 more you can get an even bigger calling plan with your Galaxy Ace from Talk Mobile, this time £8.50 per month will get you one hundred calling minutes, five thousand texts and a 500 MB data limit.
Appearance Counts for Something
You cannot judge a book by its cover, but appearance has to count for something when you are choosing a new mobile phone, and the Samsung Galaxy Ace is not a bad looker at all. Smooth lines and rounded corners make the Ace fit snugly and comfortably in your hands. The casing might be plastic, but its etched diamond pattern combined with a metal rim make the Ace look much more expensive than it actually is.
It is pretty portable too. At only eleven centimetres by six, a bit over a centimetre in width and weighing just 113 grams, you will barely notice the Samsung Galaxy Ace in your pocket if you are carrying it around with you all day.
This truly is one of the best smartphones on the market in this budget range. Perhaps you are looking for a kid's first phone, or maybe you want a cheap hand set to run a second SIM card, or maybe you are on a tight budget. There are plenty of people who can benefit from buying such a great phone for such a low price.
Our verdict on the Samsung Galaxy Ace. We love it. It is going to be tough to find a phone which can match this kind of performance for this kind of price!

Samsung has emerged as a pretty potent contender in the tablet market. Samsung has a lot more to offer in terms of variety, but its most recent masterpiece is the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition. This tablet runs Android OS and has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels (299 PPI), placing it at the top of the market. Its 8MP camera will make capturing high quality photos and video easy, to be enjoyed on a 16:9 display that’s perfect for watching HD videos.
Android tablets like Samsung’s tend to be more developer friendly than user-friendly. This has obvious pros and cons. On the bright side, developers have a lot more freedom to program interesting and innovative apps that are one of the main reasons for the need of a tablet. On the other hand, technical issues inhibit Samsung tablets from running as smoothly as its Apple counterpart, and it is more prone to lag.
If you’re wondering why this has become such a contender, it’s because of its most unique feature: the S Pen stylus. Running on Wacom technology it allows for easy writing or drawing and amazing sensitivity. The other benefit is its price, which is a lot lower than the iPad without sacrificing too much in terms of specs, design and performance.
Ultimately, it’s up to the consumer to decide which would most benefit them. The iPad is reliable and trendy, fast, simple and beautifully designed. If you’re willing to spend some extra money for it, then it is money well spent as it’ll make for a great tablet. Alternatively, if you’re looking for something that’s almost or just as good as the iPad but aren’t willing to spend too much money, than a Samsung tablet won’t disappoint. Whichever one you decide on buying, both of these brands are top of the market and their tablets will help keep you organised and entertained.

On 13th November 2013, a jury was picked to begin assessing the total value that Samsung owes to Apple. However, this will be a minor proceeding when compared to the much larger case due to take place in March. That trial will examine newer products which have been only recently released onto the global market, while the November case dates back several years to products that have since been discontinued in parts of the world. Although the case is one of copyright infringement, it’s clear that money lies at the heart of it. In both cases the jury will ultimately have to decide whether Apple actually lost any financial revenue due to Samsung products. Apple became the most popular mobile phone manufacturer when it established the IPhone in 2007, but completion has been fierce ever since, and Samsung’s smartphones sales eclipsed that of Apple in 2011.
This feud has been described by some observers as pointless and petty. After all, who is really going to win in this case? Both sides are spending their time battling in court over past products when they should be focusing on their next technological developments to advance their empires further. A number of internet memes have appeared mocking the feud, including one that supports an absurd rumour that Samsung paid their $1bn debt to Apple by sending dozens of trucks to deliver the whole amount in Nickels (5 cent pieces). It seems that Apple and Samsung’s lawyers will be true winners in this case.
Who do you think will win the case this time? Which company’s products do you prefer?

It’s a neverending cycle that goes on and on. To make a solid choice, you need counsel. When deciding between the hottest devices on the smartphone-table market – the Galaxy S4, iPhone 5 and iPad Mini – there’s a definite choice that’s right for you. We’re going to help you find out which one it is, starting with the two hottest smartphones available.
Reparability: Compared to the Galaxy S3, the Galaxy S4 has a stronger shell and source of protection against accidental drops and misplacements. Through drop tests, it’s been shown that the iPhone is stronger, but this causes no need for worry. There are affordable and reliable places for Samsung Galaxy S4 repair like XpressFix.
Bottom Line: If you’re looking for a smartphone with a larger screen that encourages customization, the Galaxy S4 is for you.
Reparability: Since the durability of the iPhone 5 is proven, the need for repair is lessened. But when it hits the ground hard, don’t worry. Quick, foolproof iPhone 5 repair is available through XpressFix.
Bottom Line: If you’re looking for your first smartphone or like the iPhone 4s and want a small upgrade, go with the iPhone 5.
Reparability: Given its size, the iPad is a little more susceptible to harm than smartphones. To prevent screen cracks and other damage, invest in a strong case. And when your case isn’t enough, don’t worry – you won’t have to buy a new iPad. XpressFix offers affordable iPad Mini repair and quick turnaround times.
Bottom Line: If you already have a smartphone you love, get the iPad Mini. If you don’t, go with one of the smartphones mentioned above.

Apple is suing Samsung for $2.5 billion in damages but if the court rules in their favour these costs could quite easily double if they are found to be in violations of trademark agreements. For the past year these two global giants have been throwing lawsuits and countersuits at one another like a couple of school children and this is when it’s all theoretically going to be finally put to bed. Over the next four weeks, ten Silicon Valley based jurors will have to unanimously decide who’s been copying whose homework. Apple claim Samsung are using both their designs, technology and user interface whereas Samsung will claim Apple in fact copied their designs for the hand set from Sony, Apple are using Samsung patented technology without paying for it oh and Apple are being big meanies and basically not letting anyone else play in the smart phone industry.
In the past Apple have been accused of filing deliberately vague copy right and patent protections so they can challenge anyone who comes out with a product vaguely similar to theirs. So far Apple have stormed courts all over the world and got products banned. Although when they got to the UK, their case was thrown out by a judge who claimed there was no way the Galaxy Tab was a copy of the iPad as it wasn’t cool enough and ordered the tech giant to run advertorials in British press reassuring everyone no intellectual property had been infringed. In typical Apple fashion, they threw another hissy fit, refused and now this will have to wait until October as it goes through the appeals process.
This time Apple are claiming Samsung have stolen features like tap to zoom as well as the overall look of the handset. This at least Samsung can’t deny, both handsets are large rectangular screens completely touch screen except one central ‘back’ button. Samsung’s argument to this is that they were working on designs for their original Galaxy S before Apple launched their iPhone.
The reality is Apple cannot feasibly continue to dominate the market through bully boy tactics. If they truly have the best product would it not make more sense to spend their time and money developing even better products and beating their competitors in reviews and sales rather than law suits and court rooms? Nine times out of ten, when the average consumer is torn between two products offering similar features and specs and with similar reviews, the deciding factor is going to be price – how can Apple honestly expect to stay market leader when their nearest competitors are so much cheaper than they are?
