"Samsung Galaxy Ace - a quality, relatively cheap Android."

I don't have the money for the big budget Android phones, so at £200 the Samsung Galaxy Ace seemed to be a good compromise between features and price.

The phone looks nice, with a smooth front and a grippy black back that makes it easy and comfortable to hold. The touch screen responds well to input, and the touch sensitive buttons on the front of the phone are just as responsive.

The Android operating system is very stable, and the phone can run applications downloaded form the Android Marketplace, meaning that the possibilities are unlimited as long as there's an app for what you want to do.

I'm impressed with the camera, which has a decent flash and is able to scan barcodes which are useful for functions like the search feature in the eBay app. In other words, scanning a barcode can save you a lot of time.

The home screen and menus are customisable, and there's a widget that enables to you quickly toggle features like Bluetooth, WiFi, and social network updates, in order to save battery life.

Messages are displayed as a thread, the appearance of which can be changed based on your own personal preferences, and the address book can easily be synced with Facebook, Twitter, and any other social network you happen to be a part of.

This phone is brilliant, and so far I can't find a reason to fault it.
