It has a decent size screen with good resolution, slightly underclocked yet dual-core processor, and 5MP cam with flash plus a front-facing camera.

Reviews Word on the street for the Samsung GALAXY Ace 2


6.5
The colors are vibrant, it is bright enough for use in sunlight, and sports very good viewing angles.

7.0
Coming for a general all-round overhaul, the Galaxy Ace 2 has been bumped to an 800MHz dual-core processor from a similar speed single-core offering whilst the handset's RAM offering has made the jump from 278MB to a far more respectable 768MB.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

The image looks sharp, with reasonably good viewing angles and pleasant colors.

Allowing for quicker access to key handset details and messaging alerts, the Android standard pull-down notification menu offers speedy shortcuts to the most vital data, helping to keep the Ace follow-on running along smoothly.

Video

The framerate hits the 30 fps target easily and videos are very smooth.
by GSM Arena (Apr, 2012)
Capable of shooting 720p HD video recording content at an impressive 30-frames-per-second, the Galaxy Ace 2's integrated video recorder produces strong video content with concerns of heavy pixelisation, motion blur and weak audio all forgotten following the first use that see's the middle of the road Samsung handset gain a foothold on a number of its competitors.
by TechRadar (Dec, 2012)
720p files usually played (including DivX, XviD and MKV files), but 1080p didn't work.
by GSM Arena (Jul, 2012)

Camera

As fun as it is functional, the Ace 2 is far from bereft of redeeming qualities on an entertainment front as the handset sees Samsung pair a 5-megapixel rear-mounted camera with autofocus capabilities and integrated LED flash features.
by TechRadar (Dec, 2012)
The sensor returned a pretty good low-light picture without the flash – a sharp photo for the class.

Panorama works well, stitching images together perfectly to form impressive shots.
by TechRadar (Dec, 2012)

Cpu

Thanks to the handset's 800MHz dual-core processor, the Ace 2's user interface is a nippy affair with the CPU combining well with a highly responsive 3.8-inch WVGA multitouch display for screen transitions that are smooth and zippy with little infuriating lag or performance depleting stuttering.
by TechRadar (Dec, 2012)
The compact size and good PLS LCD screen will be a boost for the everyday interaction with your smartphone, whether you are in or outside, and the dual-core processor under the hood will make sure you don't feel underpowered.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2012)
We can't vouch for the final unit, but our prototype behaves very well in the interface, powered smoothly by the dual-core processor with ARM Mali-400 graphics unit.

Apps

You can adjust the text size and subtitle sync.

We are met with the familiar TouchWiz music player on the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2012)
For those not taken with the Google Play Store, Samsung offers its own alternative to the standard Android outlet in the form of Samsung Apps, a retail service that piggybacks off the Google service to provide a selection of Android apps at prices that can vary greatly from those on the Play Store.
