Samsung re-issued their weapons. This time is a mini version of the Samsung Galaxy S , the Samsung GT-S5830, or better known as Galaxy Ace. Is this smartphone enough Valuable ? Let us examine more information, see page after page of our review for more details.

* Android OS 2.2 Froyo
* 3G HSDPA 7.2Mbps
* Processor 800 Mhz
* HVGA resolution TFT LCD Display (320x480) with a width of 3.5 inches
* 5MP camera with autofocus and flash

Design and Body

At first glance, people will think if Ace is the iPhone. Very reasonable, because it's very similar. Wide screen (3.5") and aspect ratio (2:3, even with the resolution like iPhone 3G/3GS (320x480)), then list shiny around the phone, and corners like the corners on the iPhone 4. This phone is so like the hybrid between the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S. From the back cover, this phone is very different from both other phones, not smooth material that is rather flat but jagged, the positive value is the back become slippery when exposed to sweat from your hands. Design of the phone is quite good overall, not too big but also not too small. According to our screens with a width of 3.5 inches it's very fitting used by smartphones.

Parts of the phone there is a hardware button "Home" and two touch buttons on the left and right, respectively Menu and Back, which within a few seconds the lights are lit at the touch of this button will disappear so that the Galaxy Ace like only have the Home button. The back of the jagged, 5MP camera with no lens protection was accompanied by a single LED flash, as well as the loudspeaker on the opposite side. The side of the phone is covered by a bluish chrome, as in the Galaxy S. On the left there while the volume buttons on the right there is the power button and a slot for micro SD. At the top there is a micro USB port and a standard 3.5 mm audio jack, on the bottom there is only a microphone.


Unlike as the Galaxy S with screen "Super" (Super AMOLED and Super Clear LCD), Ace wearing only a standard TFT LCD screen. With a standard resolution of 320x480 (HVGA), Ace is not commensurate to the opponent high end smartphone with WVGA screen. But the colors came out pretty good, quite brilliant, angle of vision is also okay. Nevertheless, it appears white on this phone looks yellowish when compared to the Xperia X10 and 3rd Gen iPod Touch.


The typical interface Samsung present in Ace. TouchWiz UI 3.0, does not exactly match the Galaxy S; to unlock is not the same, but most of it looks very similar. Live panoramic wallpaper and wallpaper can be used on the homescreen, as well as shortcuts, folders, and widgets. Homescreen page by default there are 3 pages, which can added up to a maximum of 7 pages. Menu comes with a black background and icons 4x4, plus 4 icons remain on the bottom line. You can edit the layout of the icons, but you can not change the number of icons that exist in a single page or a black background are not replaceable. However, you can download the application launcher like Go Launcher EX. There's no annoying lag. You could say the phone is quite good performance compared with the other Android phone class. Rolled bar notification typical Android OS present here, with access to power Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Profile Silent, and screen rotation. Underneath is the name of the service you use and the existing notification.

Text Input

Text input method that you can use is QWERTY, 3x4 keypad (abc), handwriting box 1 and box 2. How to replace it is by tapping icons on the keyboard settings. In addition you can also use as an alternative Swype text input. Swype has been supports Indonesian so that typing will feel easy when you have mastered it. In addition to Indonesian also exist in Korean and English. In portrait mode screen typing is very comfortable because this phone is almost as wide with 4 inch phones like the Galaxy or X10. In landscape mode is not as wide as both of these phones, but overall very easy to type. Sensitive matter of no doubt, extremely responsive capacitive screen.


Phonebook synchronized properly with Google Mail account, Facebook and Twitter you. From the contacts, you can see the profile picture, update status, email addresses, and other information that he shared on your Facebook / Twitter. In making new contacts, information which can be recorded is IM (almost all messenger services are provided), group, ring tones, address, office, surname, websites, birthdays and celebrations. Synchronizing contacts through SNS can also be used.


Inbox email almost real time. Other email accounts can also be used, but as usual you have to do some settings to sync with Yahoo Mail. Congenital messenger phone is the G-Talk, which is always online until you disable it manually. Push notification comes perfectly. Another Messenger you can download on Android Market.


Like the camera on the Samsung S Galaxy, which is 5 Megapixels (2560x1920) equipped with autofocus. Ace equipped with LED flash but absence of a camera shutter button. Focus mode on Ace just autofocus and makrofokus

These features are complete enough cameras, among others: Shooting mode (single, Smile shot, continuous, panoramic), Scene (Portrait, Landscape, Night, Sports, Party / indoor, Beach / snow, sunset, dawn, colors of fall, fireworks , text, candlelight, backlight), exposure value, the Timer (2,5,10 seconds), resolution (5MP, 3.2 MP, 2MP, 1.3MP, 0.3MP), White balance (Auto, Daylight, incandescents, Fluorescent, Cloudy) , effects (sepia, black and white, and negative), ISO (100,200,400), Measurement (centralized, fleck, matrix), auto contrast, image quality, adjustment (contrast, saturation, sharpness). We can add lines guide (guidelines), and turn on GPS for geo-tagging.

The results of the camera is quite good for the size of the 5 MP, in the dark condition were not outrageous. The resulting color is similar to the results of the camera on the Samsung Galaxy S.

Video Recorder

Video recorder is quite disappointing because the only record up to a maximum resolution of 176x144 and 320x240 QVGA alias only. Another setting is the timer, white balance, effects, video quality, adjustment. Framerate good enough, according to FF Video decoder in Windows Media Player Classic framerate between 17-21 frames per second and about 900-1000kbps bitrate. Additional LED flash allows you to record the objects that were located near the dark.


Same as Galaxy S, typical 3D gallery of android that combines photos and videos participate equip the phone. This time the images are not resized according to the display screen. Please you are zooming in by tapping the screen twice and rendering will be done by phone. Photos of the X10-sized 8MP could read well although there are rendering during the initial reading and when zooming in but not too long / annoying. Pinch and zoom and accelerometer also applies in the gallery. Photos can be instantly shared on Facebook, Picassa, Allshare, email and others.

Video Player

As in Video Recorder, a video player on the Ace is also somewhat disappointing, only able to read a bit codec, there is no capability to read divx / xvid, or . Mkv like the phone classmates Galaxy S. It is noteworthy, competitors Ace, Optimus One, the default video player can play divx / xvid standard definition smoothly. But you can play divx, xvid and other codecs with RockPlayer applications.

The video player itself is very simple, just a timeline, the pause button, fast forward and backforward only. Downloads videos from Youtube to a resolution of 480x360 (360p) can be played on this phone, and perform very well in screen resolution HVGA at Ace.

Music Player

The music player arrange the songs in 4 categories, Artists, Albums, Songs (all songs in a micro SD), and Playlist. Album art is displayed when selecting the album or when playing a song. In landscape mode the display is not much different from portrait. Using the loudspeaker broke the sound quality in the highest volume. With the use of headset sound quality is pretty good, with the equalizer settings (Normal, Jazz, Classical, Dance, Pop, Live, Concert Hall, Wide, Bass enhancement, Clarity). Manual Equalizer does not exist, and here equalizer combined with a Sound Effect (on Galaxy S Live, Concert Hall etc is the sound effects .) so you can not use equalizer pop while wearing effects such as concert hall. 5.1 channel effect is also participating in this phone, but like before, before the equalizer should be in the Normal position.

FM Radio

You must use a headset to listen radio broadcasts. Station ID can be displayed (if any)


Samsung Galaxy Ace runs on the Quadband network 850/1800/1900/2100 and 3G 900/2100 with internet connectivity HSDPA up to 7.2 mbps. Then the local connectivity is a GPS, Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi (802.11 b / g / n) and the micro USB (as mass storage, PC sync using Kies and modem). This phone can use the WiFi tethering as the Galaxy's and other Froyo phones.


Galaxy Ace browser same with other Android phones. Although using Froyo, this browser does not support flash (in the settings there is no option to turn the flash as the default browser Galaxy SL). Do not worry because the phone is equipped Youtube application, although it still flash based games unplayable. This browser supports only 4 tabs are, oddly enough, too little even though everyday you may not open a tab that much.
