    I’d like to see the Ace up-close. I showed the pic to a lot of my friends and while some of them laughed it off at being an iPhone 4 knock-off, others were in awe, it being a lot like the iPhone 4, LOL.

  2. alvin says:

    sir yung galaxy mini s5570 wl po yt LED flash un…thnx

  3. JKisaragi says:

    @alvin

    Onga noh. Upon checking 3mp fixed focus cam lang sya, no led flash. Baka nasobrahan lang sa copy-paste si Sir Abe. Hehe.

  4. sylv3rblade says:

    Wow Spica and Galaxy 5 replacements in less than a year. Ouch.

    And ouch ulet, may GPU ang Ace.

  5. yuga says:

    Guys, thanks for pointing that out. Cut & Paste e.

  6. jp says:

    For that price i’d rather be getting the moto defy, but motorola’s motoblur feature slows the heck out of the device.

  7. 9evian6 says:

    nasanay na ako sa Super AMOLED display kaya parang hindi na interesting.

  8. angel [email protected] says:

    My moto defy is better than this piece of copycat junk

    what about the Galaxy Gio?

  10. wengweng2003 says:

    nothing new to offer techies? specs are just in different combinations…

  11. sky says:

    Ok sana yung Ace except for the display… too low-res. Sayang. :(

  12. Ferdinand A. says:

    SAMPLE – Samsung na mukhang Apple :-)

  13. F23 says:

    Galaxy Gio has a better resolution than ‘Mini’ and ‘Fit’. Hope they reasonably price it.

    samsung galaxy ace Php14,700 @cmk cellphones

  15. john says:

    Hay nako these models are here to fill the gap in the midrange market so for those complaining about the specs I think you need to look somewhere else…

    Sayang yung gpu kung walang matinong driver parang yung nangyari sa spica

  16. Sonofa says:

    Sayang kung kaya lang sana flash video sa ace maganda na sana…

  17. triangulo says:

    Meron pa po ba mas mababa price sa P14,700, eto po price na natanong ko sa greenhills, w/ 1 yr warranty. Doon po sa mga nakabili, ok po ba performance nya?

  18. Epstein says:

    Pwede flash video sa Skyfire browser.

  19. papao6 says:

    yung samsung galaxy GIO po magkano? kasi mas mataas maganda processor niya eh. anu ba yan, araw araw yata naglalabas ng mga smartphones, kaya di ako makapagdecide kung anu bibilhin ko. ayaw ko kasi mapag iwanan phone ko kaagad…

  20. triangulo says:

    di ba pareho lang processor ng Ace at Gio? Pero mas mataas ang ibang specs ng Ace.

  21. marco says:

    Wave 2 is a far superior handset than Ace hardware-wise. If only because of BADA OS’s few repertoire of quality apps.

    Ace should be officially priced like how cmk priced it!

  22. marco says:

    Hintayin nyo muna MWC bago kayo mag decide. Advice lang

  23. Gumz says:

    baba ng price sa cmk…

  24. Jam. says:

    *still waiting for Playstation-certified phones*

  25. triangulo says:

    @Marco… Ano MWC?

  26. justine says:

    @Triangulo. . MWC Stands for Mobile World Congree. 8)

    Galaxy Ace looks like a Cheap iPhone 4 Knocke of. Pero Ayos yung specs nya. Low-res lang ang screen and sana AMOLED naman. kahit hindi Super. I want it. Pero I’ll wait muna sa MWC. Kaya ko pa magtiyaga! 8))

  27. jdm says:

    ang nakakabitin sa Samsung mid range android phone ay — internal storage AND memory (RAM)

    kahit may mga App2SD ka… hirap naman mapatakbo yun mga memory-intensive apps, esp. games.

  28. NineSwordz says:

    Yeah, how about Samsung Galaxy Gio? I think mas ok siya, better res and much cooler design.. =) difference lang nya sa Ace ay screen size and camera, the rest is all the same.

  29. Triangulo says:

    Thanks Justine for the info.

  30. I like this mobile phone because of its features that other mobile phones don’t have. http://ritratos.blogspot.com/

  31. Charles says:

    The Galaxy Ace looks like a clone of the Iphone. Except for the display everything seems to be ok and priced competitively.

  32. vons lg optimus says:

    Boss supported kaya ng galaxy ace ang flash player 10.1…..anu ba arm version. Nun

  33. name says:

    i like them all .. i just don’t like the fact that their processors are not 1ghz at least .. sayang .. but nicely priced phones though

  34. Xandrouz says:

    15k ang samsung ace sa Samsung Store sa MOA. Last unit na raw nila, hehe.

  35. realjarley says:

    @Xandrouz

    Eh anong pakialam namin?

  36. daniel says:

    sayang … disappointing ung 320×480 sa galaxy ace tapos ang mahal pa… sana 480×800 na agad haha… no deal

  37. techzone says:

    astig ng mga bagong galaxy. i want to buy samsung galaxy ace

  38. chibabs says:

    What are the RAM specs?

  39. razorous says:

    +2290 upgrade from Mini to Fit, you get the auto-focus? Good enough! :)

  40. madapaka says:

    Will wait for the Next Galaxy S instead of this entry level ones. Hope they release it here by Q1 —> http://www.samsungunpacked.com/html/explore_1.html

  41. I recently did a preview video of the new Samsung Galaxy Ace. Check it out here: http://www.techdron.com/samsung-galaxy-ace-gt-s5830-preview/

  42. DCKMobile says:

    Akala ko din nung una iPhone 4, first glance kasi talagang kala mo iPhone eh…pero actually para talaga siyang Samsung Galaxy S Mini

    btw, we have na:

    P14,500

  43. stariray says:

    Galaxy Ace may look like a cheap Iphone clone, its still a decent phone for those who can’t afford an Iphone. kesa naman bumili ng china phone. eto nlng! :)

  44. marc says:

    I think the reason why Samsung limited the screen resolution is for market strategy. And also to maintain prin ung fone sa mid-range db. Imagine if it has 400×800 screen and 1Ghz CPU, then, High-end phones na un. =) So hayaan na ung specs nia, coz it is competing for other mid-range fones. :)

  45. YHAJ says:

    OY, mga toll ano b dapat hintayin sa WMC??

  46. YHAJ says:

    ano palang special thing about WMC?

  47. Mel says:

    Iphone 4 beats all this smart ass phones..
    Nothing to compare…
    Yeah!!

  48. Jm says:

    nu ba mas maganda galaxy spica or galaxy ace?..
    hndi rin naman kac nagkakalayo ng price eh..
    d aq makapagdecide qng nu bibilhin q..

  49. Cza says:

    Too bad the Galaxy Ace doesn’t have a front-facing camera. It would have easily been the phone of my dreams; never mind its being an iPhone ripoff and all.

  50. porkchop says:

    CONS:
    A big turn down for the ace is its design that resembles alot like iphone…and for some reason it lags a bit and the battery life is not that good, its only good for a day….

    PROS:
    Pretty decent phone for a 16k…

  51. dime says:

    I just bought a galaxy mini and so far the only thing i dont like about it is that the battery life is too short. I just find that a bit disturbing that i cant do much unless i bring my charger with me which is a big hassle. Any advice? I’m starring to think of going back to where i bought and have it check.

  52. amio says:

    I’m considering to buy an ace this week. I agree with porkchop, it does look a bit too much like iphone. Any other samsung ace users out there who can tell me if it’s worth it? Oh, it only costs 13990 right now til the 17th because of the samsung sale. It’s the same as the online store prices. It’s the same in most stores here in Baguio, too.

    Another question, considering the price is the same almost everywhere I look, would it be better if I get it from the samsung concept store? In terms of warranty and such, after sales service, etc.

    Thanks.

    Dati may Samsung Corby ako (my first samsung phone) and so far satisfied naman ako. Kaya naman im fan ng samsung.

    Now I have this Galaxy Ace for two months na and this is is my first android phone. Actually , first choice kong bilhin yung Galaxy S. Pero i choose galaxy ace instead, kasi almost same lang ang function nito sa ibang mga high end phones and somehow mas ok pa nga ito eh. Considering its price, perfect ito sa lahat ng mga newbie sa android. I have several good points with this GALAXY ACE.

    —800mhz is fast enough unlike Optimus One with 600mhz.
    —3.7 inch screen is enough for browsing, viewing, and tapping for keyboard.
    —full android experience is superbb! And its since android siya, you can customize the UI (user interface) using app launcher. Replace stock app (messaging, music and video player – im using moboplayer which plays almost all formats, like flv, wmv, avi and poweramp as music player).
    —Camera is fine with 5MP same sa mga high end phones. Picture taking and video recording (720p is definitely fine) are really great lalo na at may LED flash pa siya sa likod.
    —balita ko may update na ito for Android 2.3 aka gingerbread. which is definitely great for ace in recording video.
    —with GORILLA GLASS DISPLAY, scratch proof ang screen…fortunately wala pa naman gasgas ang phone ko, no need to buy screen protector,,,
    —i searched htc high end phones, like desire, incredible s, dhd, desire s. They are great in their respective specs, pero may mga cons and pros pa rin. At the end of the day, galaxy ace pa rin ako…but still hoping to get htc in the future.

    ang downside lang ng GALAXY ACE,
    —battery life, good for one day in average use, (anyway ganun din naman sa lahat ng android smart phone maliban siguro sa iphone4)

    share ko lang po mg sir and ma’am….

    • mjevarc says:

      Thanks for the specification and your reviews about samsung ace. Same with you first choice ko yung samsung s. I’m thinking to buy it pagkasweldo ko. hehehe here in davao at abreeza sa samsung stall nila..it’s already 10k++.

    • Rei says:

      Just a few corrections on the spec you put there, since it might mislead other people.

      1) The Galaxy Ace has a 3.5 inch HVGA screen, not 3.7 inches.
      2) It does not record videos in 720p HD, but a measly QVGA resolution (which isn’t such a big deal for me).
      3) The gingerbread update will not enhance the video recording capability of the Galaxy Ace since it is a hardware, not software, limitation.
      4) Gorilla Glass is not scratch proof…it’s only scratch resistant.

  54. porkchop says:

    get the Samsung galaxy ace, i have it for 5 mos. and i love it.

    but there’s a little issue when im playing a music , for some what reason it pause randomly…i dunno whats the problem :(

  55. androidz says:

    Nice Article you have, i am planning to write the same topic, thanks, keep posting

  56. robi says:

    I had the ace for three months now. working nicely i should say.some problems thoug would be the battery life(expected na siguro sa dami ng background apps na gumagana). just turn off all syncs and background data, keep brightness at a minimum, turn off gps when not in use to extend battery life. music and radio pauses in a while. too bad sammy’s taking a while to release the official gingerbread update for the galaxy family

  57. kulaknit says:

    gingerbread update now available thru kies here in the philippines.

  58. SaekoNica says:

    I really want that Samsung Galaxy Ace. But I think mas ok yung fit because of its girly style (sabi ng iba girly style daw) same lang ba ang features ng Ace at Fit?

  59. Samsung Galaxy Ace is a very good choice if your budget is only 15-16k and you want a decent phone. I am planning to buy this one, the price is okay for me.

  60. Ivan says:

    can someone help me …yung samsung ace ko grabe kumain ng load, when sometimes i open apps kinakain yung load ko …help naman,,may kailangan ba akong e adjust sa settings???

  61. zóóóóó says:

    Ezek a telefonok szarok csak a samsung galaxy gio a jó

  62. as says:

    this kind of phone was available in Philippines in quezon city a how much the price ???

  63. It’s perfect time for it to develop plans in the future and it’s time for them to be pleased. I have read this post if I could I wish to suggest you some intriguing issues or advice. Maybe you can write next articles discussing this information. I desire to read more reasons for having it!
