It has limitations of weak hardware
No HD-ready video recording, grip-friendly, good snapper
Samsung's Galaxy Ace is a well-rounded budget contender with its 800 MHz processor that allows it to manage daily OS tasks with ease, up-to-date Android 2.3.3 mobile OS, snazzy 5 MP snapper and grip-friendly dimensions.
