Samsung Galaxy S I9000 vs Galaxy Ace S5830 Comparison

If you are looking for some nice high end or higher middle end Android phones, you don’t have many choices. Everyone would have suggested the Samsung Galaxy S, for it has been a very good seller throughout the world in the recent days and also the Galaxy Ace, which falls in the middle end price bracket and outperforms every other mid end phone in the market which has a 800Mhz processor. While you decide the budget and choose your pick, take a look at the comparison here:

GPS is available on both the phones and Bluetooth is 3.0 enabled on the Galaxy S while the Galaxy Ace has Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP support.

Operating System and UI:

Samsung Galaxy S i9000 has a latest version of Gingerbread, 2.3.3 with Samsung’s User Interface, Touchwiz 3 and the Galaxy Ace comes with 2.2 Froyo but the 2.3.3 Gingerbread update is coming soon. The User Interface is the same on both phones though the Galaxy S provides an overall better experience on Gingerbread, thanks to some minor tweaks and improvements for the larger screen.

Battery and Processor

The Galaxy S has a 1500mAh battery. The Galaxy S claims to have around 14 hours of talktime and 713 hours of standby time on 2G while the Galaxy Ace has a 1350mAh battery and around 11 hours of talktime and 640 hours of standby backup.

The i9000 has 512MB of RAM along with a 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor, a PowerVR SGX540 GPU and a Hummingbird chipset while the Ace S5830 has a 800 MHz ARM 11 processor powered by a Adreno 200 GPU and Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset.

Conclusion

There is a price difference of a few dollars but the Ace is the best bet if you’re keen on the budget and looking for a portable phone which can perform really well. The Galaxy S, slightly bigger in size comes with a more powerful processor and a better Android experience overall. Stretching your budget a bit and going for the Galaxy S i9000 would be the best option as the software updates and overall media enhancements and features will only keep becoming better as time progresses but Samsung might not be keen on the Ace.

        • If you need to free up internal memory, you definitely need root.
          This is because, rooting allows you to do things which an average user cant.
          There is an app called “Forec2SD” and installing the same(after your phone is rooted) will let you force any app to the external SD card with the exception of apps that have a widget. This is due to an android limitation.
          Any app which has a widget cannot be transferred to SD, even after root.

          Hope I helped You.

  8. It feels depressing being an ACE owner when you samsung might not be keen on it.

    • Feeling is mutual bro. but i dont think that samsung will not bring updates for ace, coz its market feedback has been really very good.
