					Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus review

Introduction

The original Galaxy Ace S5830 did well for Samsung in the midrange. And, as we all
know by this point, midrange droids are a force to be reckoned with, especially among
users looking to move up from dumbphones without breaking the bank. Now, exactly a
year later, the S7500 Ace Plus enters the fray looking to build on the success of the
original.

It seems that Samsung has taken note of the major drawbacks found in its initial Ace
offering, and provided improvements in many key areas, most notably a more robust
processor and larger internal storage.

And while it is an improvement per se, VGA video recording @ 30 fps is nothing to write
home about, considering the original Ace had that fixed via a software update. Now that
Samsung upped the processor to 1Ghz. That being said, the Ace Plus offers a spec sheet
that we would write home about, if, you know, we didn't have cell phones and such.

Take a look:

While there were no blatantly poor areas in which the original Galaxy Ace needed to be
improved upon (besides the camera, of course), the updated processor, internal storage,
RAM and slightly larger screen make the Ace Plus feel-and perform-like an upgrade.

Android has seen many improvements since the Froyo 2.2 version originally found on the
first Ace, and while it's no Ice Cream Sandwich, Gingerbread 2.3.6 runs absolutely
glitch-free on the Ace Plus.

Coming up is our traditional hardware tour, where we look at the Galaxy Ace S7500 in
detail.
