LONDON, November 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Everyone knows that smartphone sales are ever increasing, but the Samsung
Galaxy Ace is one of the big hitters when it comes to sales. In fact,
according to Carphone Warehouse , the Ace is right up there with iPhone 5 and
the Samsung Galaxy S III in sales figures. So, what makes the Samsung Galaxy
Ace such a success?

Well, as soon as you look at it, the Galaxy Ace is a stylish smartphone with
looks well above its cost effective pricing. It's also light and portable, so
there's no troubles carrying it around all day, or being forced to use both
hands to text. The 3.5" touchscreen is also of high quality, supporting all
the features you'd expect of a touchscreen smartphone - good colour
representation, pinch and zoom, responsive.

And this is really where the Samsung Galaxy Ace leads the way. It has
everything you'd expect from a modern smartphone.

On the back there's a strong 5MP camera with LED flash that gives surprisingly
sharp images, while sharing photos and videos to Facebook and YouTube is quick
thanks to built-in Wi-Fi and 3G. This also means you can get online when
you're not at home, something that's increasingly a must have feature of the
smartphone. Emails can be checked anywhere, you can check up on the sports
results and grab your apps.

That's right, apps, the vital addition to modern phones. Because the Samsung
Galaxy Ace runs Android, it can access the apps in the Google Play Store.
There are hundreds of thousands of apps in the store, most free, letting you
customise your phone in hundreds of ways. There are new ring tones,
backgrounds, games, news apps and widgets - icons that sit on the homescreen
and update with information. Thanks to the nippy processor that powers the
Ace, games are pretty impressive too.

In fact, thanks to Google Maps, the Samsung Galaxy Ace is also a capable path
finder and sat nav, so you can use it while driving - handsfree equipment
plugged in, of course - or to find a new restaurant. There's the complete
smartphone experience.

The Samsung Galaxy is also a real steal when it comes to price. At Carphone
Warehouse you can get a monthly contract with inclusive minutes, texts and
internet data for just £7.50. Even if you're a Pay as you go user, you can
pick up the Ace for under £90. No wonder it's selling like hotcakes.
