The Samsung Galaxy Ace: What’s it All About?
LONDON, November 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
Everyone knows that smartphone sales are ever increasing, but the Samsung Galaxy Ace
is one of the big hitters when it comes to sales. In fact, according to Carphone Warehouse
the Ace is right up there with iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S III in sales figures. So,
what makes the Samsung Galaxy Ace such a success?
Well, as soon as you look at it, the Galaxy Ace is a stylish smartphone with looks
well above its cost effective pricing. It’s also light and portable, so there’s no
troubles carrying it around all day, or being forced to use both hands to text. The 3.5″
touchscreen is also of high quality, supporting all the features you’d expect of a
touchscreen smartphone – good colour representation, pinch and zoom, responsive.
And this is really where the Samsung Galaxy Ace leads the way. It has everything you’d
expect from a modern smartphone.
On the back there’s a strong 5MP camera with LED flash that gives surprisingly sharp
images, while sharing photos and videos to Facebook and YouTube is quick thanks to
built-in Wi-Fi and 3G. This also means you can get online when you’re not at home,
something that’s increasingly a must have feature of the smartphone. Emails can be checked
anywhere, you can check up on the sports results and grab your apps.
That’s right, apps, the vital addition to modern phones. Because the Samsung Galaxy
Ace runs Android, it can access the apps in the Google Play Store. There are hundreds of
thousands of apps in the store, most free, letting you customise your phone in hundreds of
ways. There are new ring tones, backgrounds, games, news apps and widgets – icons that sit
on the homescreen and update with information. Thanks to the nippy processor that powers
the Ace, games are pretty impressive too.
In fact, thanks to Google Maps, the Samsung Galaxy Ace is also a capable path finder
and sat nav, so you can use it while driving – handsfree equipment plugged in, of course -
or to find a new restaurant. There’s the complete smartphone experience.
The Samsung Galaxy is also a real steal when it comes to price. At Carphone Warehouse
you can get a monthly contract with inclusive minutes, texts and internet data for just
GBP7.50. Even if you’re a Pay as you go user, you can pick up the Ace for under GBP90. No
wonder it’s selling like hotcakes.
