Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 vs Galaxy Pro B7510 Comparison

Mid end Android phones are selling very well throughout the world. With Android catching up with lots of apps and other features, the middle budget buyer is looking for phones which perform well overall. Galaxy Ace is a neat performer and falls under the middle segment of Android phones with the Galaxy Pro, almost similar in technical specifications but also with a QWERTY keyboard making the deal even better. Follow us down to see a comparison of both the phones followed by the conclusion:

 

Samsung Galaxy AceGalaxy Pro

 

Display

The Galaxy Ace comes with a 3.5 inches TFT capacitive touchscreen while the Galaxy Pro has a TFT screen of 2.8 inches. The Galaxy Ace’s screen has a 320×480 pixels resolution, The B7510 Pro’s 2.8 incher has a resolution of 320×240 pixels. Both the phones do not have Gorilla Glass.

Just below the display, the Galaxy Ace has two touch sensitive buttons and a physical button on the centre.

Camera:

Galaxy Ace has a 5 Megapixel camera in the rear  and records video at 480p and does not support HD video at 720p. There is no secondary camera on both the phones. Photos are shot at a maximum resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels and the camera has autofocus also. Galaxy Pro has a 3.15 Megapixel camera which supports Autofocus and shoots at a maximum resolution of 2048×1536 pixels. The Galaxy Ace S5830 has an LED flash on the rear but the Pro doesn’t.

Memory:

The Galaxy Ace has 270MB of internal memory and a microSD card slot which supports upto 32 Gigabytes of storage. On the other side, the Galaxy Pro has 512MB of inbuilt storage and supports microSD upto 32GB.

Both the phones come with a 2GB memory card inside the box.

Connectivity:

Both the phones have three HSDPA bands: 900 / 1900 / 2100 and give maximum speeds upto 7.2Mbps.. Wi-fi bands are the same with both supporting the latest band of Wi-Fi, the 802.11n and 802.11b/g as well. GPS is available on both the phones and Bluetooth is 3.0 enabled on both the phones, along with A2DP. Also note that DLNA support is available via Wifi only on the Galaxy Ace and the Pro does not have it.

Operating System and UI:

Both the phones are based on Samsung’s TouchWiz UserInterface over Android. The Galaxy Ace can be upgraded to the latest version of Gingerbread, 2.3.3 while the Pro will not be receiving that update and is based on Android Froyo, 2.2. Overall, the user interface is the same but with Samsung’s tweakings on the Pro to fit the operating system on the 2.8 inch screens. Some buttons have been placed on the side or arranged differently on the Pro, as you can see from the picture above. The Galaxy Ace also has excellent support for various Custom ROMS and modifications and has an overall nice performing phone OS.

Battery and Processor

The Ace has a 1350mAh battery. Galaxy Pro also has a 1350mAh battery which is considered quite low for Android smartphones. Samsung claims upto 610 hours of standby time and 15 hours of talktime on 2G on the i9003 SL  but only around 10-11 hours of talktime on the Galaxy Pro.

Galaxy Ace S5830 comes with a Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset and the Pro B7510 has an 800Mhz processor and does not have a Graphics Processing Unit, also known as GPU.

Conclusion

The Galaxy Ace is a good mid end phone which performs exceptionally well for a 800Mhz processor, User interface lags are not seen while the Galaxy Pro has been reported complaints of a buggy user interface and the software has also not been updated on the Ace. However, Galaxy Pro has a form factor which very few phones have which run Android. If you are looking for a QWERTY based phone, go for the Pro and it is slightly buggy on the software, but Samsung should update it soon while the Galaxy Ace is an overall good device which provides excellent battery life and media.

    I have been using 11 models of samsung phones in these 2 years. I was satisfied with the models that I have used so far, however am not satisfied with the galaxy pro querty keybad. The phone has got amazing features but the battery drains out very quickly. You charge it for too long and then suddenly within mins it gets drained off the moment you use any application.

    “Both the phones have three HSDPA bands: 900 / 1900 / 2100″ is wrong: Samsung Ace S5830 has 2 hsdpa bands 900/ 2100.
    “Bluetooth is 3.0 enabled on both the phones” is wrong: Samsung Ace S5830 has Bluetooth 2.1.

    “Galaxy Ace has a 5 Megapixel camera in the rear and records video at 480p” is wrong too: Samsung Ace S5830 records video at 320×240

      Henry you are wrong. it records video at 480p in gingerbread. res is 640*480

      • Reply Henry August 24, 2011 at 1:18 pm

        Well Philip I’m using it with its original firmware; I’ve bought it recently and I’m waiting for the original update (unless it takes too time to come).
        Thank you for your advice anyway, this helps me to think that I made a good choice (for that little amount of money of course).
        I thought that 320×240 is really too poor for a 5mpx camera.
        Thank you very much

    “Both the phones do not have Gorilla Glass.” is a wrong sentence: Samsung Ace S5830 has Gorilla Glass
