Samsung galaxy Ace s5830 Review: A cheap midrange android smartphone that comes with a 800mhz processor, hi speed internet capability, 5mp good still camera, a great sound quality, working A GPS Support and a great looking design like iphone 3. This phone is popular in Canada, USA, UK, India and all over this world because of its good specs and cheap price.
This phone has a decent modern design. Slim, light weight and a modern design make this phone for good usability and fashionable.
This phone has a 3.5 inch TFT capacitive touch screen display that support 16 million color. But pixel density is not the best, its medium (~165ppi). Other well known Samsung android Smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S display technology is Super Amoled tech. This android smartphones has a Gorilla Glass Protection display. this phones display is better than Samsung Galaxy Y (a similar phone). Because of its display resolution, pixel density and display technology.
Galaxy Ace support external memory of 32gb micro sd card. 2 gb memory card is included (free) with this phone. Internal memory is a little small on this phone. Because of 158MB internal memory cannot fulfill in an android phone.
This smartphone Camera is for good working still camera. The 5mp camera can take your daily life needed still photo snaps. The quality of this camera picture/photo is good in my views. Led flash and auto focus option is also included as like a good still camera. Bonus is Geo-tagging, face and smile detection features. You can view some photo/picture sample of Samsung galaxy Ace s5830 here. But video camera is not a good capability of video recording. It cannot take a HD video quality, because it needs to be a 1ghz processor to take a HD quality video. This phone can take QVGA video @15fps. Only 15fps isn’t a good video camera quality. There is no front camera of this phone for 3g or skype video calling, it’s a disadvantage. There is no drawback of this phones still camera because of this camera yield good result on low light condition via its flash light. This camera take Outdoor picture best.
A GPS Support: you can get A GPS opportunity in this phone at a cheap price. This is an advantage of this phone.
Skype and yahoo messenger: you can easily use skype and yahoo messenger on this phone. But the front camera is not available on this phone. So you should use rear camera as a front camera by using software. At first you need to update your android version to latest version: v2.3 and then download skype directly from skype’s website. Download skype here now.
Sound Quality of Samsung galaxy Ace is excellent though its a cheap android smartphone. This phone use Samsung’s DNSe sound effect, include 12 types of equalizer presets. The headphone gives you the 5.1 channel sound quality. So you can get a great sound quality at a chap price. The fm radio features Stereo radio which support RDS. This phone support 3.5 mm audio jack for external audio device.
Internet speed or connectivity of this phone is very fast as like a well known Samsung smartphone (like Samsung galaxy s2). Its speed is 7.2 Mbps in HSDPA and Edge supported.
Samsung galaxy Ace features a single core 800 MHz ARM 11 Processor. For its CPU details you can visit ARM processor website here. That CPU can run your android apps, games and other work. But its performance wills not well if you install heavy weight new apps, games or latest version of android. Because it has a only 278 MB of RAM memory and a low internal storage of 158mb memory. It has also a GPU for a better graphics processing work, display and 3d gamming. All features is available like other big budget smartphone, but this phone is for using average android apps, games and normal work. By buying this one, you can get the test of android smartphone.
This smartphone features on android froyo v2.2 os. It is possible upgradeable to v2.3. you must upgrade it for using skype. this isn’t the latest version. I think its not possible to upgrade it to the latest version of android os (android Icecream). Because of its low internal memory, and low RAM size.
Samsung galaxy Ace Battery life: this phones battery life is average. This phone use Li-Ion 1350mAh battery. That is better battery backup than Samsung galaxy y. you can talk Up to 11 hours in 2g via this battery life. Its battery backup last for maximum 2 days (in my opinion).

3. Hi speed internet connectivity and a good working browser
4. Good still camera for daily life usages.
5. Android smartphone at a cheap price (a good pros)

4. Battery Life is poor when running internet or 3g. it last for only 1-2 days when you runs 3g or internet.
