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.

For me biggest feature is that it plays real old school FM radio. You need a piece of hardware most newer expensive phones dont have. You cannot download an app if the hardware is not in your phone. I can record and listen to local fm radio stations for free. Phone has worked fine over two years for what I do surf net on wifi make phone calls text and play movies and music. A 16 g micro sd card works fine for me. The smaller size suits me easy to put in pocket. Battery needed replacement after 2 years but still working fine. I would buy another one. Less

Good riddance!

So slow! Every app crashes often, even the telephone app! It can take up to 30 minutes to be able to make a call! And then, the phone will place every call you've tried unsuccessfully during that period. So you'll be spending another 10 minutes just hanging up. The phone will ring in your hand... bu... More
So slow! Every app crashes often, even the telephone app! It can take up to 30 minutes to be able to make a call! And then, the phone will place every call you've tried unsuccessfully during that period. So you'll be spending another 10 minutes just hanging up. The phone will ring in your hand... but the screen will remain blank, so you miss the call! And it often hangs up by itself during a conversation. Got rid of it but had to change supplier since its replacement - another Samsung - at my former provider has even worse reviews. Good riddance! Less

Lag,lag,and more lag ,tried all I could to smooth it out!

Good phone if you already have a tablet

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 ever so slightly blurry. Might just be this particular lens. It records audio/video very well and is surprisingly quiet. It plays movies fine but I had to download a better video player to play back many common codecs. This is a good phone if you already have a decent tablet. Less

Horrible phone!

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 with only 4GB of storage. The phone's RAM comes with a maximum of 744 MB so even using it for basic tasks can be difficult. Oh, and did i forget that the screens resolution is only 480 x 800 pixels. You can easily see every little light of the screen. In conclusion, I am very disappointed with this phone. Less

My phone is broke.

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.

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 alarm by touching the touch screen, the phone decided by itself to call my father at 6 o'clock in the morning.
