Samsung Galaxy Ace GT-S5830

This phone is a cheaper smartphone compared to many on the market today such as the Iphone, Samsung S3, Samsung Note, Blackberry's et. However, retailing at over £100, I would still expect more. I found the phone unreliable and a downright nuisance when trying to run simple things such as the phonebook or messaging function. I have had older phones in the past which I would find more reliable than this one and have been put off from purchasing a Samsung mobile in the future.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace can be purchased at Argos, Tesco and high street phone shops such as Carphone Warehouse, Orange, Tesco Mobile etc and is available on a range of networks on either Pay as You Go or Contract.

 
** PRO's **

Sleek design and light weight, this phone fits simply into pockets and handbags and isn't like many of the large smartphones out today i.e. Samsung Note and S3

Android phone - Enables you to download many apps from the Android market simply by logging on with a googlemail account and either downloading free apps or paying for them securely and efficiently

Large enough screen which can be zoomed in, which is ideal for browsing the web, watching video's on youtube etc

Easy enough for texting using the touch-screen keyboard with large enough icons, making texting simple and quick

** CON's **

Having installed a micro-SD card into the phone, I thought that this would be sufficient memory to download a couple of APPS on to the phone to enhance the durability. However, after installing the Facebook app on the phone and only having a couple of photo's, it became apparent that the phone would become very slow, before eventually telling me there was insufficient room for any more apps to be installed (I only had the one!)

Opening up my contacts / messaging folder would bring up a black screen for several minutes, which is not ideal if you need to make an emergency call etc

Battery life - Even using this sparingly during the day, I found I would need to charge it overnight to ensure that there would be enough battery life in the phone to last a full day
