Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus review

 Review: April 2012  


In a nutshell: The Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus is an upgraded version of the number-one selling mid-range smartphone. With a good sized screen, a fast processor, plenty of memory, fast internet and Google Maps, it takes a lot of beating. If only the battery life were better it would be perfect.

Best buy: Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus from Amazon Marketplace UK (£92.30)


The Galaxy Ace Plus GT-S7500 is an upgraded version of the hugely popular Galaxy Ace Android smartphone. Like the original, the Ace Plus is a mid-range smartphone, but with an improved specification, which greatly improves the overall user experience. Evolutionary rather than revolutionary, the Ace Plus brings a host of improvements to a top-selling product, and that can only be a good thing.

The key improvements are:

  • Slightly larger display (3.65 inches instead of 3.5 inches)
  • Faster processor (1GHz instead of 800MHz)
  • More internal memory (3GB instead of 158MB)
  • VGA video camera
  • Bluetooth version 3.0

These are all welcome improvements. Together, they make the GT-S7500 a well-specified smartphone for its price range. In particular, the big increase in memory to 3GB (of which 2.7GB is available to the user) and the faster processor should make the phone run a lot smoother and help to avoid the problems of freezing and crashing apps associated with the original Ace.

Having said that, the battery life of the Ace Plus is no better than the original, and the phone is slightly larger too. The Ace Plus runs Android Gingerbread 2.3 rather than the latest Ice Cream Sandwich, but given the mid-range hardware that's understandable.

The Ace Plus may not be attracting as much attention as some of its expensive cousins, but as a mid-range offering, it seems like a solid bet. To compete with the best offerings in this highly competitive mid-range, it would need a higher resolution screen, a faster processor and a bigger battery. Check out the Samsung Galaxy W, HTC One V and Google Nexus S as alternatives.

The worst mobile phone that I have ever purchased.
loses reception
Screen blacks out whth in a fraction of a second
Phone cuts out and cuts of before I have a chance to speak.
Extremely tempremental when you have to rely on it for business. Sorry but totally unreliable
I have given it 1 star because you do not have a minus.

Very tempremental. Never could upload my previous contacts. Looses reception and internet connectivity often in places where others have no problem. All round, pretty but a pain. And no one has spares or a cover. Feel conned.
