Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus Revealed

While it might not be on par with the HTC Sensation or it’s bigger brother the Samsung Galaxy S II, the Samsung Galaxy Ace has proven to be a very decent mid-priced Android handset and has been a great option for those who want a solid handset that doesn’t three or four hundred pounds.

Improvements over the original Galaxy Ace aren’t huge but with a 200Mhz bump to a 1Ghz processor and a larger 3.65″ screen there’s no doubt that the Galaxy Ace Plus is a more capable handset. Disappointingly the Galaxy Ace Plus still only has a 320 x 480 pixel screen which is an even bigger drawback when you consider even some low-end handsets feature 480 x 800 pixel screens or more.

It comes as a bit of a surprise to see that the Galaxy Ace Plus looks very similar to the iPhone 3GS, something you’d think Samsung would be keen to avoid considering their recent legal battles with Apple. A price is yet to be revealed but it can be assumed the Galaxy Ace Plus will cost somewhere around the £200 mark.
