“This Phone is Ace!”

Battery life, clunky Kies software

A few months ago I decided to buy my daughter a new mobile phone. She had been using the Samsung Jet but her love of Twitter revealed the Jet to be lacking somewhat when it came to surfing the internet. My daughter rarely uses her phone to make calls, preferring to text or surf the web with it...

“You can’t be serious,” my friend said as we sat about at a table at Starbucks a couple of weeks ago, “it doesn’t take half an hour to load up the internet on your phone, surely!” she said, patronizingly. “It does, and don’t call me Shirley,” I replied, jokingly. Seriously though. Such is the...

“Samsung Galaxy Not So Ace!”

published 20/01/2013

Works for calls & texts. Wifi. Looks good.

Crashes. Small internal memory.

Samsung Galaxy Ace GT5830 Back in August 2012 my old phone decided it was time for us to go our separate ways and died on me. The phone in question was my Samsung Tocco Lite, I had had the phone for around 2 and a half years and up until the day the touch screen stopped working I had had no...

I’ve used quite a few mobile phones over the years, starting with those ones that were the size of a house brick and you had to carry the battery around with you in a rucksack, or in a side car. So it’s nice to see that these mobile phones are not only getting smaller but are getting much more...

“Yes, it is ACE!!”

Headphones

When it came to changing my contract and phone last year, I had no idea what I wanted. This was going to be the first time I would have an android phone so I knew that I wanted something easy to use and as silly as this may sound, I had acrylic nails at the time so I needed something easy to text...

Poor battery life when using apps

I wanted to upgrade my phone last month and I was shocked, though I don't really know why, at how quickly phones seem to go outdated and are replaced by their 'newer version'. There are so many to choose from, and numerous tariffs you get hassled in to signing up to, that it's hard to decide...

In December last year, I was finally due an upgrade on my mobile phone. Having known this was coming, I had been excited for a couple of months about getting a new phone - I liked the Sony Ericsson that I had, but since my partner had got an iPhone, I had been wanting a smartphone. My first...

I had this phone recently for about 3 weeks, and although it is a great phone for the price, if you are a phone fanatic and enjoy the luxuries of a fast phone with a great camera and a slick feel, then this probably isn’t the one for you. To cut it short, the camera is decent when comparing it to...

“Samsung Galaxy's Slow pACE”

published 22/01/2014

Price. Has camera. Wifi.

Slow to run.

I myself own a Samsung Galaxy S2 but my partner had my old HTC Wildfire S which was almost a snail with the battery capacity to possibly just hold a ten minute conversation; this was just beyond inconvenient and not suitable when travelling to and from work is needed. I began hunting high and low...

I have for over 3 years endured life in the slow lane with my old LG KC550 which with it's dodgy key pad, battery charging issues and numerous other failures had taken pride of place in my pocket until 3 weeks ago. I was not ofay with all the latest technology that was going on and with my step...

I was looking to purchase a budget smartphone on pay as you go that looked stylish and could download apps on. I stumbled across the Samsung Galaxy Ace retailing at £79.99 and decided to go for it. The phone itself was an upgrade from an old broken iphone 3G. When took the galaxy ace from the box...

Battery runs out quicker when on the internet

My youngest daughter and my Other Half both had new phones over Christmas and they both got Samsung Galaxy Aces. I am always using their phones for one thing or another so I reckon I am able to give a good review of what they are like. The phones are really nice looking, a bit like my Galaxy Y...

“Smartphone at a smart price”

Full Android implementation

No iPlayer, fairly basic specification device

Hard as it may be to believe, having worked in IT for very nearly 30 years I’ve finally gone and bought my first mobile phone – that isn’t to say I’ve managed to avoid mobile telephony for most of my adult life, but my previous employers supplied me with a (very) basic handset and I was happy...

“My first smartphone”

published 25/06/2013

Great value for money, Android smart phone

Low battery life, average camera quality

I bought the Samsung Galaxy Ace from Tesco as my first smartphone on a budget of £15 a month. I thought the phone is very good for the money I am paying, but there are better phones out there depending on what you want. The phone looks very good and fits well into my bags and pockets. I like the...
