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.

Hmmmmmm, it's okay.

I have only recently upgraded to a Smartphone, after having lost my beloved Samsung flip-phone at sea. I was disappointed that a standard ringer tone did come come with it; I don't want to hear birds chirping, rain falling or cat-call whistles-I just want a regular ring tone. I had to download that.... More

underpowered, Slow, laggy and frustrating. Adding memory adds little function.

Not really a good phone

(about 1 month ago)

I've used this phone for about a year and it lags a lot but if you figure out a way to stop it from lagging its a good phone considering most carriers give it for free with deals. But not worth paying for.

Bluetooth is crap!

(about 1 month ago)

Got this phone as free hardware upgrade thru Rogers and was very disappointed that it wouldn't work with the hands free link in my 2013 Honda Odyssey. My old Samsung T556 stupid phone and IPhone 4S work fine with the system. Both Rogers and Samsung couldn't make it work and from what I've... More

Disappointed

(5 months ago)

I went from an HTC Sensation to The Samsung Galaxy Ace II X. I couldn't be more disappointed with this product. It is too slow. During texts I have to wait for the letters to pop up to see what I'm texting, and I don't txt like an 18 year old girl. The browser is terribly slow and there... More

Great Phone! :)

(10 months ago)

I have had my Ace 2x for about three months, and the phone has its ups and downs. It's ups: It's easy to use, it's a good size, there's a lot of things to customize to make the phone more "for you", it comes with a decent browser, it comes at a great price, and it... More

I am very disappointed with this phone.

(11 months ago)

This is my 3rd samsung phone, my first smart phone. First thing it does not have a manual, being a very much older user, I am not tech savy, I NEED A MANUAL. I have DIAL-UP service 167 pages of manual takes forever to download. This phone is NOT BLUETOOTH COMPATIBLE. I spent 1.5 hours at the telus... More

Nice, Cheap Smartphone

(11 months ago)

In the case of the Samsung Galaxy Ace II X, you get a little more than what you pay for. Considering this is a very cheap, entry-level smartphone, it works quite nicely. The screen is big, the phone is very light and slim, battery life is excellent (provided you are not using wifi, that is a killer,... More
