Pretty solid for an eco-friendly device
In an era where $100 can get you a pretty stacked smartphone, you'll need to do a lot of thinking if you're considering picking up the Samsung Exhilarate at $49.99 on-contract. Overall, we're pleased by its well-balanced package - and it helps that it's one of the better-looking eco-friendly devices out there!
Blazing LTE data speeds
The LG Nitro HD has an awful lot going for it. It offers blazing data speeds, a great still camera, and one of the nicest displays on the market - all in a physical design that works. The phone is hamstrung a bit by weak battery life when compared with its peers, but it still is a really solid device. I can't say I love it as much as I expected to initially, but I really do like it a lot.
4G LTE connectivity
Let's get straight to the point, there are some very profound qualities of the LG Nitro HD that stand out, but when you look at the overall picture, it doesn't have the effect of getting us all excited in the inside. Yes, we adore its detailed 720p display and 4G LTE connectivity, though, for $250 with a 2-year contract, it's still up there in terms of pure pricing.
Screen of the device is marvelous
It's been a good while since we last saw a flagship from LG. The Korean giant took its sweet time with the Nitro HD to make sure it got everything right. And on most accounts, this is the very case.
The screen of the device is marvelous, the spec sheet impressive, and the OS up to date. In this department, we already know that an Ice Cream Sandwich update is in the works.
Fast phone with 720p display
There's a lot to like about the LG Nitro HD, and it's not an easy choice if you're looking for a 4G LTE phone on AT&T. The IPS display is sharp, colorful and bright with excellent viewing angles, the phone feels good in hand and it's fast. The rear camera is top notch and it takes pleasing 1080p video, and the phone can play all manner of streaming and locally stored content with ease.
Easy one-hand operation
The Galaxy Ace 2 could have become a bestseller for Samsung, with the notable exception of a more distinctive design. The compact size and good PLS LCD screen will be a boost for the everyday interaction with your smartphone, whether you are in or outside, and the dual-core processor under the hood will make sure you don't feel underpowered.
Impressive 5MP camera
A warning signal to its handset competitors, Samsung's reign of power is quickly moving away from the one-off flagship Galaxy S devices, with the Ace 2 firmly rooting itself as a mid-market challenger with a near budget price point that will appeal to many.
Not the most media savvy of devices on the market, the Ace 2 makes up for small niggles and limited features by mastering what it offers.
Faster CPU and cooler curved design
Overall, Samsung have a winner in the Galaxy Ace 2. This is a very meaningful upgrade over the original and ticks all the right boxes to get in the running for midranger of the year. Now it's up to Samsung to release the ICS update (and if we dare dream, Jelly Bean after that). Anyway, the moment it gets the Ice Cream Sandwich, there will be just the Xperia duo between it and its goal.
Comfortable to use
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 isn't designed to be a world-beater; it's a budget smartphone that does the modern basics well. So bearing that in mind you have to say the Galaxy Ace 2 is a very good phone, that doesn't come up too short in any area, and one that deserves some serious thought if you're in the market for a cheaper phone.
Decent price, sturdy, responsive
It's not the cheapest, it's not the most expensive and it's not the worst performer, nor is it the best. The Ace 2 is middle of the road, but that's a good thing. It's solid, works well and lacks the nonsense that drags other phones down. If you're offered this handset by your operator as an upgrade, you could do worse than accept.
More memory and bigger battery
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 is the successor to the original Galaxy Ace. It improves on the original thanks to a better screen with a higher resolution, more internal memory and a bigger battery. The fact it comes without Ice Cream Sandwich software, however, is disappointing.
Quite customizable design
Faced with the challenge of the popular and capable iPhone, Samsung pulled out all the stops with the Galaxy S II, summoning its vast technological prowess in so many areas to produce a phone that really shines. From the "insanely great" monitor with its vibrant color and deep blacks, to its powerful processor that allows smooth animations and impressive capabilities, the Galaxy S II presents a winning alternative.
