Jam-packed full of features, the 3 Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 punches well above its weight when it comes to value for money. Nestling firmly in the mid-range price-wise, you'll be impressed by just how many high-end features the Ace has to offer.
Top of the list is Android 2.2 - a newer version of the operating system than you'll find on almost all of the cheaper-end smartphones out there. With an impressive 800MHz of power to harness it all, the Ace is the fastest and most responsive mid-range smartphone going!
It's the little extras that make all the difference, and that is what gives the Ace its winning hand. Features like the LED flash (included with the 5MP camera) set the Ace head and shoulders above its competition at the same price-point, and will make your low-light photos so much better!
Looks-wise, the Ace feels high-end, too! Taking its visual cues from the Galaxy S, the Ace sports minimal buttons on the front, plus an attractive finish on the back that gives the Ace that touch of class. Weighing in as even lighter than the Galaxy S, the Ace is one of the most portable devices in town.
Simply put, you won't find better value for money than the Three Samsung Galaxy Ace. If you're after a truly customisable homescreen, and acres of space to make it your own, Android is the obvious choice; and you won't find a better-featured Android phone at this price point than the Galaxy Ace! It's the obvious choice for new smartphone users and old fans alike.
