4.0 out of 5 stars Good phone...poor battery (but it is salvageable!) 17 April 2012
I bought this phone from Vodafone as a replacement for my absolutely woeful BlackBerry Torch 9800. I had previously had a HTC Desire Z and I knew I wanted to go back to an Android phone, due to the large selection of apps (unlike BlackBerry). If you want an inexpensive phone with a good camera, Android and a touchscreen, this is probably your best bet. I really like the phone, it is extremely user-friendly (the touchscreen text-messaging took me a while to become accustomed to, but altering the XT9 settings helped me massively). Samsung is a reliable brand, this is my fourth Samsung model and I've liked all of them. The screen is bright, clear and the widgets on the home screen are really handy (news, weather, Facebook, Twitter etc). However, as has been mentioned in previous reviews - things like this really sap the battery life, which isn't the best. However, there are a few neat little tricks to enhance your battery life.

1. Change your background to one with dark colours, the brightness will affect the length of your battery life.

2. Only download apps you're actually going to use! It seems common sense, but when I actually looked at the apps I'd downloaded, I realised I wasn't using half of them and they were draining my battery life.

3. Go into settings>wireless and networks>mobile networks>use only 2G networks. If you're out and about i.e. at work or in a meeting, whereby you're not going to be using your internet for anything, TURN OFF 3G. It's an unnecessary battery drainer. You'll still be able to receive and send texts and calls, and apps such as Kik and Whatsapp will also still work (albeit at a slower rate if you wish to send pictures etc). Turn it on when you want to browse the internet, and if you can, set up your wi-fi at home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Phone 31 July 2011
I bought this phone from the Carphone Warehouse rather than from Amazon, and I think it's a great phone. My last phone worked on android and since I broke it, I wanted to get another android. The Ace is a good android phone, with most of the pre-loaded apps being rather useful and the camera on it is, in my opinion the best I've seen on a phone. It has options to change the focus mode and has a macro feature, great for taking pictures of objects close-up. The camera also has a feature allowing you to take panoramic shots, continuous shots and a smile shot feature, which recognises a smile and takes the picture when it detects one. It really is like a digital camera all packed into a sleek, good-looking and light phone.

The music player is rather good and reaches a decent volume. There is also an FM Radio which I think is a nice addition and I've used it a few times. If the pre-installed apps aren't for you then there is an endless array of apps buyable and free from the app market which you can get onto from your phone.

The text messages are set up as a thread rather than individual messages, much like the message set-up on an iPhone. I myself find this very useful, though there is no option to re-send failed messages, so re-typing a failed message is rather annoying, especially if it's a long one, though this is only a small inconvenience. Initially when the phone is new, the keyboard is set out in a QWERTY format, though this can be changed to a normal phone key pad (1=abc 2=def.. etc) in the message settings.

There are only a few drawbacks to this phone. One is that the phone occationally turns itself off, which can be rather irritating if you're waiting on a phone call or a text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb little phone 29 July 2011
This phone delivers a great user experience, especially if you use Google services (i.e. search, Gmail, G+ , Picasa Google Talk etc). Granted this is not unique to the Samsung phone but rather generic features of android phones.
In terms of the handset itself the screen is excellent , although not as good as an Iphone's (to be expected at the lower price point). Battery life is a little disappointing but that is really nitpicking at what is otherwise a fine piece of equipment.
It sits nicely in the hand, is very light and the form factor is just right for carrying around with you all the time. It uses a standard micro-usb port to charge up which is a plus.
Accepts SD cards - I moved the SD card from my old Nokia Symbian phone over to the Ace , and was pleased to see that it automatically found all my music, video and photo files.
Works extremely well as a phone , unlike some other smartphones. Voice clarity is great and the phone dials quickly without delays.
Overall the user experience is very good - no noticeable lag during day to day use.
Highly recommended!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great phone 30 Aug 2011
As a 50 something, I thought it was time I joined the smart phone revolution and after looking at many brands and models, I settled on the Samsung Galaxy Ace. Why this one (1)size - still small enough to fit confortably in my trouser pockets, yet with a good size screen, (2) weight/build - some of the others just felt so flimsy, (3)I have a hearing loss and many phones didn't have a high enough volume for me, I can hear on the Ace perfectly even in a noisy environment, (4)touch screen is very reactive and easy to use, (5) loads of apps, though I had to ask friends for recommendations as I was in sensory overload with the quantity available. I really love Google Street View, it will be brilliant when I next go on holiday, finding my way round new places. Also like Kindle app and screen is not too small for reading, (6) Texting is so simple and I am getting used to swype, (7) camera and video are very good, (8) have loaded some music from my I-Tunes folder, though the album covers disappeared; sound qaulity is very good. Negative points - battery runs out quickly if using the internet and some apps; phone has turned itself of a couple of times for no apparent reason. Would recommend this phone and already having a look at it's big brother the samsung Galaxy S for when my contract runs out.
