Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 LTE Review – An affordable Ace of Spades?

INTRODUCTION

Not everyone has the fortune of being able to win the latest flagship device, or the money to buy one. The fact is most people worldwide dare to splurge on a brand-new flagship only once every two or three years. However, there are still many who do not feel like spending much on their mobile devices, or can only afford to spend very little, and hence settle on devices such as the one we are reviewing today – Samsung’s latest in the very affordable Ace line, the Galaxy Ace 3 LTE. Released 14 months after the Ace 2, it is a significant improvement over its predecessor. While the Ace 2 had a poor 800 MHz dual-core processor, the Ace 3 LTE has upped the clock speed by 50%. The RAM has also been increased from 768 MB to a full gigabyte, amongst other improvements. Before we get going though, let’s have a close look at the Ace 3’s specifications.

Google approves first Cyanogen Phone

It was a decision that had many Android geeks holding their breaths, with the biggest ones being held by the team of Cyanogen Inc. About three months ago, Cyanogen Inc. (then simply CyanogenMod) had announced the decision to go incorporated, and had announced a tie-up with an OEM we now know to be Oppo. They had then applied for verification from Google to allow the users of their own version of Android to use Google services, the most important being the Play Store. Well, guess what?
