If you have been using a basic phone or feature phone all this while and would like to buy a smartphone for the first time without breaking the bank then look no further than Samsung’s Galaxy Ace Plus. The Ace Plus was introduced in January 2012 as a replacement for Samsung’s older mid-range smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Ace. The newer model sports faster processor and slightly bigger screen powered by Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread which is up-gradable to Android v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The Galaxy Ace Plus was introduced in Malaysia somewhere in early 2012 with an introductory price of RM800 or less. It is an affordable mid-range phone perfect as an upgrade from an entry-level Android phone. This is also the phone that you might consider if you are not able to afford the high-end Galaxy SII or SIII. What is more interesting is that the phone now cost less than the RM800 retail price when it was first introduced. I saw one sold at RM598 at an online store and a few others sold at the price range of RM570 to RM650 at a local phone shop. I am not sure whether the phones are AP (Approved Products) or original but what is clear to me is that the phone has definitely had a huge price cut.

Verdict

The Galaxy Ace Plus has very few downsides (except for the camera),  the faster processor coupled with larger internal storage, RAM and 3.5-inch screen definitely will give you years of good experiences with the phone. Most of all I think is the price cut – it is cheap, powerful and sexy…why not buy one as a replacement for your old basic phone?
