First Impressions: Samsung Galaxy Ace


Once in a while, the mobile tech world springs a surprise. The spanking new Samsung Galaxy Ace is one of them. Powered by Qualcomm’s 800MHz (MSM7227-1 Turbo) processor, running Android v2.2 Froyo and packed with impressive features like 5MP camera with AF lens and LED flash, the Galaxy Ace is sleek and value-for-money. This is probably one of the best mid-range Android smartphones out there.

I’ve been playing around the Galaxy Ace for a few days, and I’ve really come to like it. Samsung’s TouchWIZ interface adds a little more jazz to plain Jane Android and although its an acquired taste, you will appreciate some of the finer points in terms of user experience and added features. The 3.5” 320×480 HVGA 16M TFT display is pretty crisp and bright. It also comes with an Accelerometer Sensor, Proximity Sensor and Digital Compass. Some added features include Quicktype by SWYPE, ThinkFree, AllShare, Multi-touch zoom and FM Radio (RDS). Stay tuned for a full review!
