Samsung plays its budget Android trump card with the Galaxy Ace, certainly one of the best entries into this year's entry-level smartphone market.
PROS
Feels more premium than the Gio due to the larger size and display real estate, good snapper that has a flash, Android Gingerbread powered, hot-swoppable memory card slot.
CONS
Processor matches Gio's speed but scores lower on benchmark test, no HD-ready video recording, display is a fingerprint magnet and prone to showing reflections when used in direct sunlight.
VERDICT
Samsung's Galaxy Ace offers a grip-friendly design that comes across as more premium than the Galaxy Gio's, due to the slightly larger dimensions of the device and the added screen real-estate.
