Pros of s5830
The phonebook’s memory is so large its capacity is practically limitless. Now I can save the numbers of all the fast food stores, pizzerias and other delivery services in the country! It has the same quick contact feature as on Android 2.1 so I can just click on a photo to call, email or send an SMS. If only I could squeeze in the digits of my pretty neighbor downstairs then I’d be set. Other things I noticed were its fast interface and typing on the touchscreen was easy.
Cons of the s5830
One of the things I found annoying at first with my Galaxy Ace is its inability to run high-definition games on its own. It uses VideoCore IV which, to say bluntly, is a major problem for me since Samsung and Broadcom doesn’t share source codes. As a gaming enthusiast myself, this is one factor I always consider when I buy my gadgets. I need my fix and my Samsung couldn’t give it to me. Eventually, I found out that I can port games to work on my Samsung smartphone and so, everything turned out okay. Not great but okay. I also noticed that there is no flash support in the browser and it only runs Android 2.2.
Overall, I am happy with this smartphone. The only knack I had against it was its low resolution and that I can’t enjoy as many games as I want to. But as a serious gamer, I wouldn’t play that much on my phone anyway. So, basically, the Samsung Galaxy Ace s5830 is a good buy.
