Rated 5 out of 5 by Jon1 BUILD QUALITY
Is it any good, will it last? Two questions I asked myself before I decided to put my hand in my pocket for the cash.. It lasted two weeks before It broke - At least that is what I thought... Having lost the phone,and on ringing, there was no reply. And then it turned up... I had managed to stick it in the washing machine for a full cycle.. At least it came out all clean even if it no longer worked... I took the battery and sim card out, left it in a warm room and it is now back running as if it had never been away on it's little holiday..Full credit to Samsung. Wife has the Samsung 111, looks a little dirty, but will not try this again!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by kjmsamace Great product let down by a useless operating manual.
Today I purchased a GT-S5830. Whilst the vendor offered a "tutorial" should I need it I am located out in the country and a special re-visit to learn how to use the Ace involves mileage and car-parking - not convenient. I'm sure the Ace is an excellent product but I have no idea how to receive calls, how to raise a Google Mail account thro' my PC's router and many other basic tasks. A visit thro' Google to try to locate a meaningful manual has so far been beset by site diversion tricks wherein I'm requested to down-load programs which my Security software considers suspicious. I don't mind paying - all I want is a decent manual!

Rated 4 out of 5 by jojofrg Really easy to get started with!
This is my first touch phone, and I'm really enjoying it. Getting started was really easy, had no trouble with setting up email. Found my way around fairly quickly too. It has some good features like the social hub.
Only thing I have not quite mastered yet is the swype keyboard function, but you can still use tapping, so all in good time.
Only problem I've come across is the screen can be a little difficult to see in bright sunlight I've found.
Altogether pleased that I choose this phone, as I have no real complaints, and it suits my needs for - Email, phoning, web, music and apps ! So quite happy and satisfied with Galaxy Ace.

Rated 4 out of 5 by customer good phone however there are several flaws
This is overall a decent smartphone, especially for its price. However, it is very fragile as one drop on the floor completely shattered the screen and I had to pay to repair it (this is not a problem if you have screen protectors and a case for it). The phone is easy to use and the camera is good. However problems include the internal memory which is consistently too low despite clearing all data and uninstalling every app possible, it keeps lowering for some reason. Also there is trouble with the SD card as an error message 'SD card removed unexpectedly' shows at random times, even when the phone has not been touched. However for its low price you cannot really complain.

I was quite happy with my ordinary mobile, but my family convinced me that I was missing out. I took out a contract on an Ace and I look at it every day with wonderment. The fact that I can sit in my lounge and send a photograph to my brother in Australia is, well, spooky. So is being able to sit anywhere and access my email sites. WiFi seems available in so many places and means I don't use much of my allowance. I can sit and review newspapers from all over the world. The camera is much better than I expected and produces more than useable shots, so I can have a camera with me wherever I go. Well done, Samsung!

Rated 5 out of 5 by weemari Great compact and easy to use
I wanted a phone that was easy to use and not huge - mainly for texting, calls and small internet use and I have not been disappointed. The touch screen is responsive, the internet is as good as you can get for a mobile, actually better than I excepted. Just putting my contacts in the phone was so easy, the touch screen qwerty keyboard is great, making a call or texting could not be easier. I have managed to navigate around the phone with ease and using wifi also simple. Apps that can help you monitor your usage via your network provider was just what I needed. I am 45 and for me this phone it just perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Joe. A great, cheap smartphone
As a cheap, basic smartphone, I love it. Obviously it will never be as quick as the leading Smartphones, or even phones that run any other OS (in my opinion inferior, but this is down to taste). However, what is does offer is an easy, long-lasting Smartphone that has a great choice of apps (though admittedly you cannot download more than about 5 at a time due to small internal memory). On a side note the keyboard, messaging and social features are brilliant. If this is what you are looking for, then great, but if you want a powerful/media intense phone, look elsewhere...
