Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus – What You Need to Know

Samsung has been enjoying itself in the smartphone market of late, with sales still consistently strong around the world.

It’s easy to see why: every smartphone the South Korean tech giant releases is a decent turn, delivering a user-friendly interface and decent specs to boot.

Samsung also employs a strategy that’s quite different to its closest rival Apple. Apple tend to go down the ‘one device a year’ route, creating a swell of hysteria with every device.

No such strategy with Samsung, it is a very good manufacturer and isn’t afraid to show it. It seems to have a device for every screen size and specs bracket imaginable, ranging from the incredibly large, high devices all the way down to the no-thrills, cheap handsets.

But where does the Galaxy Ace Plus, its latest device, sit? Is it a piece of high-end wizardry for us all to marvel at? Or is it propping up the low-end of the price range?

It’s not too hard to work out – we’re not getting a high-end device from Samsung until the Galaxy S3 later this year. But what do you need to know about the Galaxy Ace Plus?

Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus specs

Sitting in much the same place as the previous Galaxy Ace, the Ace Plus is never going to win smartphone of the year but it’s a valuable contribution to the market.

The specs don’t quite match the Galaxy S, but beat the likes of the Galaxy Mini or Mini 2. Under the bonnet there’s a 1GHz single-core processor and 512MB of RAM. There’s also 3GB of internal storage and a MicroSD card slot for any more room you may require.

On the outside we have a 3.65 LCD screen with a 480 x 320 resolution. The camera’s not bad either, giving us 5MP.

Galaxy Ace Plus release date

This smartphone was unveiled a while ago, but has only just been given its release date. If you’re desperate to get your hands on it then you’re in luck – it’s released on 17 March.
