Sitting firmly between entry-level devices and the mid-tier market, the Ace II X is a solid, though far from cutting-edge, mobile device. It features a 4-inch screen at 480-by-800 pixels, a 1-GHz processor, 4GB of storage and Android Jelly Bean. Support for lower bands of 4G LTE service provides snappy on the go browsing as well.

Luke Johnson of TechRadar said “Not the most media savvy of devices on the market, the Ace 2 makes up for small niggles and limited features by mastering what it offers” about the device.

While the cutting-edge phones fight for dominance of the high-end market, the budget- and mid-level markets are quietly transforming as well. The Ace II X is an offers the familiar Samsung Galaxy feel in a scaled-back form.

The TFT display offers crisp text and decent contrast, the 1-GHz processor keepings things fairly fluid and 4GB of internal storage (only 2GB accessible) provides room for snapshots from the 5-megapixel camera and a few of your favorite apps. If you’re looking for more storage space, microSD card support allows you to bring your favorite movies and music along as well.

When it comes to contract phones, it is likely there are better options for your money. However, as a pay-as-you-go device, the Ace II X offers great value and performance if you are willing to overlook the quickly aging internals.

If there was a major complaint to be found about the device, it would be the lack of processing power. A single-core 1GHz processor and GPU do their best to keep the device quick and fluid. However, you will notice a few delays and stutters. Fortunately, turning off some of the eye candy in Android’s options will improve this.

Most other aspects of the phone are average for the budget market. Natasa Lomas of CNET summed up the device well when she said “It's not a great looker but it's a solid performer, giving you a route to scores of apps on Google's Android platform.”

The Good: Pay-as-you-go price, low-band HSDPA support, crisp text display and microSD card support.

The Bad: Slower performance, low internal storage capacity, cramped on-screen keyboard and plasticky case design.

Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.

Good phone if you already have a tablet

(about 1 month ago)

So far every specification I've seen for this phone has indicated it has 4 or 8 GB of storage. The one I acquired from Virgin (Bell Mobility) only has 1.69 GB of storage (total). Disappointing considering it's minimal 768MB RAM. The camera is fair and opens up reasonably quick but the photos are eve... More

Horrible phone!

(3 months ago)

Unresponsive, slow, freezes up. Totally user unfriendly. Tried to return it to Rogers, but they wouldn't hear of it. I'm stuck with a two-year contract. Rogers is still unloading these even though they are aware of the problems. They should be ashamed!

This phone is one of the worst phones samsung has ever made.. Although i got mine free, im stuck in a two year contract with my data service provider for this phone. The phone is slow and can get VERY unresponsive. The micro SD card slot is emulated meaning you cant store apps on it so you're stuck... More

My phone is broke.

(5 months ago)

My phone is so slow that I sent it to get repaired. It's a mistake from my part to believe that repairing it will solve the speed problems I have with this phone. I should have read the reviews first. Last day, it took 30 minutes to open Google Map. 3 months ago, when I wanted to shut off the alar... More

Very disappointed

(about 1 year ago)

If I put this phone in my pocket it will: turn the sound off, change settings, pocket dial my contacts. Software with this phone (Kies) for the PC is crap. It's difficult to upload music, download pictures and half the time I plug my phone into the PC Kies can't find an attached device. I'm not a bi... More
