Samsung has revealed another new Android smartphone, the Galaxy Ace DUO, and though it may not match the Galaxy S III on specs, it does have one minor advantage. Packing dual SIM slots, the Ace DUO can receive calls from either number simultaneously, rather than demanding the user switch between them manually.

The 3.5 inches screen with TFT capacitive touchscreen and 16M colors display enhance the viewing experience for the user. At the bottom of the phone we got touch sensitive controls which might not be a unique thing to consider as it has been offered by many other brands but still it is comfortable to use

Surprise, surprise! The original Galaxy Ace had a 5 mp with LED flash, but this one comes with a 3 mp shooter. The one thing that’s common is that like the previous shooter, this is equally bad in terms of quality. While low light snaps are an absolute no go, even outdoor shots are at best, average. Why the downgrade, Samsung? The video quality is limited to a meagre 320 x 240 resolution.

 Inside there’s an 823MHz processor with 512MB of RAM and 3GB of user memory. A microSD card slot is also present, compatible with up to 32GB cards, along with WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 and a microUSB port. No LTE, unsurprisingly, with 900/2100 HSDPA instead.

The phone comes with pre-installed applications which are quite popular these days just like YouTube, Facebook, Google Talk and Picasa integration. All these applications complete the picture of true entertainment, true excellence and true performance. As far as processor is concerned it is only 832 MHz which is even lesser than Nokia 500. For heavier games and multi-tasking this much processor is just sufficient but not extra ordinary. In the age where smart phones are incorporating dual-core processors, the processor of galaxy duos may not please you much.


This model is definitely targeted towards existing CDMA users. The drawbacks, include a not-so-quick-for-the-price-you’re-paying phone interface, no Internet for GSM card slot, Wi-Fi issues and a downgraded camera and no flash and the other drawback is the android version which is quite old.
