Display and Design:

A new release of the mobile medium to high standard South Korean Manufacturer has arrived and with its another step in the evolutionary design that has been showing the Ace family for a few years. The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 that does not hide the inspiration you have on the Samsung Galaxy S first generation. From the outset, the rounded lines and integration of capacitive buttons of the dean of the family Galaxy S are very simple presentation that device are present in the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3.

In addition, the terminal has a screen that is very reminiscent of the inaugurating range of all records in Samsung. While the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 we came across a panel of 4-inches screen and resolution of 800 x 480 pixels (WVGA) it is not a Super AMOLED screen but a TFT LCD screen. In terms of size and weight, the data is variable depending on the connections box. We’ll see more calmly that later, but for now we can say that the 3G model boasts a dimension of 121.2 x 62.7 x 9.8 mm while the LTE version to 121.2 x 62.7 x 10 mm and on the weight, the scale marks 115-grams and 119.5-grams respectively.


In the case of Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 we meet with a 5-MP camera, capable of recording video in HD quality @ 720p. It also incorporates an LED Flash which accompanies the main sensor to be the first time on one of these devices. Furthermore it is not without its secondary camera on the front of the device; it is capable of VGA filming and photos by 0.3-MP sensor.

Memory and Power:

We turn first to the model based on 3G connectivity. This version has only 4-GB of internal memory which could be insufficient that gives the convenience of carrying deep storage integrated our smartphone a bunch of MP3 discs, some photo albums and why not; also a movie. The LTE version doubles the memory up to 8-GB, something that will be accepted as a more reasonable by most smartphones users. In both cases the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 incorporates 1-GB of RAM and the possibility of storage expansion using microSD cards up to 64-GB.

Something similar happens in terms of power. Both the models feature a Dual-Core processor but the rate at which tour is different depending on whether we deal with the 3G version or LTE. If we talk about the 3G, we see that the chip operates at 1-GHz and will be 1.2-GHz in the case of the model with LTE.

Operating System and Applications:

This really is a time to applaud the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3. When it goes on sale this end, time is not yet entirely clear. It will do with the most current version of Google operating system for mobile. We talked about Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, a platform that showcases the latest improvements and developments that are currently in a few devices on the market, among which are the last Nexus and even the Samsung Galaxy S4. In addition, you have the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 of some leading edge applications developed by Samsung and attendees for S travel and S Travel Translator, the plugin for playback video to pause Smart Stay; viewing when checking we have stopped looking the screen interface or switch Easy Mode, which simplifies the main screen to make management easier.


And now, we talk about the connections of Samsung Galaxy Ace, the wow factor will have been significantly deflated by now. Indeed, this terminal will be available on a LTE version which will come standard on all units of the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 but only in those where it appears explicitly exposed. On the other hand, in addition to the distinction between 3G and 4G models, this smartphone will have Wi-Fi compliant with standards of Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n. It also lacks GPS with GLONASS and Bluetooth 4.0 and MicroUSB 2.0. There will also be a version with Dual-Sim option, so we could install a pair of simultaneous phone cards.

Music, Video, Photos and Multimedia:

Few developments made in relation to the multimedia potential of Samsung Galaxy Ace 3, this is a good sign. Samsung has a very good compatibility background when it comes to using audio, video and image from any of their Galaxy computers and in the case of a terminal that stands on tiptoe to look into the eyes of the high range this is more than evident. So with this device could play media in MPEG4, H.264, H.263, VC-1, WMV7 / 8, VP8, MP3, OGG, AAC, AAC +, eAAC +, WMA, FLAC or AMR-NB/WB.

Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 First Look Review


Overall, this Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 falls short of what one would expect from the Ace Family. By design, a connection, if we choose the LTE model, power and presence of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, this team becomes a reference within the mid range market and makes its own right. It is important to know the price data, which significantly marked weight this device charged on the balance. But considering that the Galaxy Ace usually costs around $300 at launch, we note that this Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 will be a highly competitive mobile. The memory and the camera are still a couple of details that still boost Samsung in this family, at least, considering the 3G model, which has 4-GB capacity.
