Comparison - HTC One V vs Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus
Translated Loh Ving Sung
02 June 2012 – Its entry-level phones galore this week, and we are pitting the HTC One V against the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus.
Both phones are powered by the Android platform. They also share connectivity options such as HSPA, WiFi, WiFi hotspot and Bluetooth. The One V and Ace Plus share a similar 5-megapixel camera. They also come equipped with a 1GHz processor and 512MB RAM. Both phones come with a microSD slot too. Both the One V and Galaxy Ace Plus weigh 115 grams.
But the similarities end there, the One V has a 3.7-inch screen with the higher 480 x 800 pixels resolution and the Ace Plus has a slightly smaller 3.65-inch screen with 320 x 480 pixels resolution. The One V has taller and slimmer dimensions when compared the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus. The Ace Plus is also thicker compared to the One V (11.2mm vs 9.2mm).
While they are both Android phones, the One V is equipped with the newer Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) platform and is skinned with HTC Sense 4.0. On the other hand, the Ace Plus comes with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and is skinned with the TouchWiz UX.
On the connectivity front, the One V has WiFi Direct but the Ace Plus has DLNA. Meanwhile, the One V has 4GB storage but the Ace Plus has 3GB instead. While they share 5-megapixel cameras, the One V’s imager allows it to capture still shots while recording video. The One V has Beats Audio for improved sound quality too.
Officially, the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus is not priced for the Singapore market yet, so using the Galaxy Ace as a yardstick, we estimate the Ace Plus will be priced at S$ 398. The HTC One V is available at S$ 398.
While they share the same price point and similar features, we think the One V edges it in this comparison. HTC's entry level device has a much sleeker chassis, a higher resolution screen and is preloaded with Ice Cream Sandwich.
