Comparison - Samsung Galaxy Ace vs Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus
By Nigel Chew
03 July 2012 – When the original Galaxy Ace first made its debut last year, it was marketed as an upper mid range device to complement the Galaxy S II. Fast forward a year later, Samsung has given it some tweaks and the end result is the Galaxy Ace Plus.
Squint hard enough and you will be able to tell that the Galaxy Ace Plus is a bit larger at 114.5 x 62.5 x 11.2 mm, while the Galaxy Ace is 112.4 x 59.9 x 11.5mm. In return for its size, you get a 3.65-inch screen with the Ace Plus, and 3.5-inch on the Ace. Do note however that they still share the same resolution of 320 x 480 pixels.
To keep up with the times, Samsung has also given the Ace Plus a minor hardware boost with its 1 GHz processor as opposed to the Ace’s 800 MHz chip and double the RAM at 512MB. The real upgrade comes in the form of the internal storage – the original Ace has only a paltry 150MB, while the Ace Plus offers a generous 3GB for you to start with.
Both the Galaxy Ace and Galaxy Ace Plus share the same 5-megapixel shooter which is a standard with today’s mid-range devices. As far as batteries go, Samsung went backwards by offering a 1300 mAh on the Galaxy Ace Plus, while the original Galaxy Ace has a 1350 mAh battery.
As far as mid-range devices go, the Galaxy Ace Plus is a rather decent device on its merits, which you can consider if you are looking for a reasonably priced smartphone. If you already own the original Galaxy Ace, you might want to look into other options, such as the Galaxy S Advance which offers much better hardware to justify the change.
