Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos Review


Samsung Galaxy Ace DUOS is basically a Samsung Galaxy Ace with dual-SIM capability.

Design
The phone is made entirely of plastic and it has a metal rim that runs around the front part. The 3.5” HVGA display makes the phone entirely looks like the original Galaxy Ace. There are no proximity sensors or ambient light sensor. There are three non-backlit capacitive touch buttons under the display.

Software
Samsung Galaxy Ace DUOS has Gingerbread (Android 2.3.6) on board as well as the usual TouchWiz UI. There are seven homescreens and there’s a useful interface to let you switch easily between active SIM cards.

Featured Smart Phones

Camera
The 5Mp camera has autofocus and various shot modes. Like the original Galaxy Ace, image quality is decent but colors look a bit dim. Indoor shots are grainy since there’s no LED flash. Other useful features of the camera include scene modes, exposure settings, effects and timer.

Performance
The phone still uses the same 800MHz single-core processor, which already looks really outdated. Samsung could have replaced it with a faster 1GHz processor to get noticeably improved performance. In HTML5 test, the Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos managed to score 189 out of 500.

Connectivity
Users can set both SIMs to deliver data connectivity, one for 3G and the other for slower 2G. Other connectivity options are GPS, Bluetooth, Wifi and tethering.

Others
Calls should go though well without any drop. Speaker works decently and there are shortcuts for accessing contacts, favorites and call logs. Text messages are presented in conversational view and users can add recent number very easily. The stock Samsung onscreen keyboard feels a bit small and typing would be challenging for those with small hands.

Verdict
Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos is a perfect solution for those who need dual-SIM features.
