For those who need to upgrade the original Ace to Samsung Galaxy Ace 2, then you will want to look at the following technical specs summary of this device as your own guide whether it's really worth for the money and entire performance. Of course, you'll find a few major improvements contained in Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 than the original.

Design

In relation to the general design, you will notice that Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 comes with very similar design as predecessor but only with a much bigger screen namely the 3.8 inches capacitive touchscreen with better resolution and density too. With the dimension of 118.3 x 62.2 x 10.5 mm and weight around 122 grams, this mobile phone definitely seems to be a bit bulkier but thinner and lighter than the original. Then again, the display is rather reflective which leads to the terrible readability under direct daylight, and also it hasn't been equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass protection.

Performance

There'll be several important improvements in hardware specs including the dual-core 800 Mhz and bigger RAM of 768 MB. The GPU Mali 400 found in this phone can be considered to be well matched with Galaxy S2's GPU. For the operating-system, the mobile phone sports Android 2.3.6 (Gingerbread) along with the customized TouchWiz UI v.3.0 and Live Panel UX UI. With the larger RAM, the OS can have the potential to be updated to the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich. You will get the internal storage space of 4 GB which can be enlarged with microSD/microSDHC card (up to 32 GB). To power up the overall operation, the standard battery of 1500 mAh has actually been added that can give the standby time of around 670 hours on 2G mode or around 640 hours on 3G mode. Moreover, it'll give the talk-time of about 16.5 hours on 2G mode or nearly 7.5 hours on 3G mode.

Camera

This smartphone still uses the 5 MP camera with 2592x1944 pixels, autofocus, LED flash, geo-tagging, face and smile detection features. The important improvements of the camera specification will be the capability to capture the HD video with 720p video quality at 30 frames per second. There'll be also the VGA secondary camera which can be considered as the excellent addition for this smartphone. Unfortunately it doesn't support yet for the 1080p video capturing and playback.

Internet Access and Connectivity Tools

The data access is also increased having the maximum internet speed of around 14.4 Mbps through the dual-band HSDPA network. To gain access to the online world, you will be able to use the default browser with HTML and also Adobe flash support. Towards the connectivity features, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 provides Wi-Fi (direct and hotspot), DLNA, Bluetooth 3.0 (A2DP), NFC (Optional) and microUSB 2.0 port.

Cost, Benefits and Drawbacks

The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 costs €280 or $370. The advantages of having this device will be the better screen resolution and density of display, much better processor and newer version of operating-system, GPS with GLONASS support and good web browsing. However, this smartphone has the bad visibiity under direct sunlight, mediocre camera specs and it does not have ambient light sensor and Gorilla Glass protection.
