With Samsung one of the modern age’s electronic darlings, the Ace was clearly going to get a lot of attention upon its release – and it has. So what does the phone have going for it – does it stand out? And is it better than other mid-range phone deals?

Well one of the premium competitors is the HTC Wildfire S and the Ace just seems to be put together in a number of ways better than the HTC. The Taiwanese made phone is for one thing not nearly as pretty as the Ace with its aluminium body and slim bezel. Its screen also lacks when compared to the Samsung, which has a clearer LCD panel than the HTC. This runs through for the premium phones and you must say that Samsung has learned a thing or two in this area, probably mainly due to years of producing TVs.

The Samsung is also one of the most powerful in the range, though there are a number of 800MHz phones out there from Sony and HTC among others the Samsung feels that little bit more responsive and has a better browsing experience, partially due to the screen and some nice innovations that make it simpler and easier to use. Our only real issue with it was its lack of ability to play Flash online.

The device also has a great camera, though it is fairly on par with much else of what is out there. We still enjoyed the snapper and it comes with some nice applications and there is always the chance to add more via the Android Market option – Polaroid effects for all.

Battery life however is the best in the whole of the field and the phone can remain charged for two days and two nights when fully connected to Wi-Fi and all the other options. This is an impressive feat, especially considering it has a larger screen than many others mid rage phones and this is usually a contributing factor in short battery life.

The device also has Android 2.2 which is quite okay, HTC’s Wildfire S has Android 2.3 and so is that bit slicker than the Samsung. Its HTC Sense overlay is also a bit better than Samsung’s TouchWiz option and so it is perhaps better in this area.

The Samsung is a very strong competitor and is probably one of the best devices as you can see if not the best – giving an all round experience.
