New Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus is Like a Samsung Galaxy S with a Smaller Display and Resolution

Samsung has introduced a souped up version of the Samsung Galaxy Ace. Dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus, its modest bump in specs doesn’t make it much more than that. It’s almost like a Samsung Galaxy S internally with its 1GHz processor and 5 megapixel camera, but even then it only has 3GB of internal storage and a 3.65 inch HVGA (yes, HVGA) display.

This phone is pretty much considered entry-level by today’s standards so expect this to be cheap wherever you can find it when it launches. “The GALAXY Ace Plus will be available in Russia starting from January 2012, and will be gradually rolled out to Europe, CIS, Latin America, Southeast and Southwest Asia, the Middle East, Africa and China,” says Samsung. Read on for full press details.

      Better than you American controlled by the few Godfathers namely Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile using their contract system. They dictate what model you should have and which don’t. So much for LAND OF FREE!!!

      We in 3rd world, can actually own a cell phone, can you? you can’t even have your own money in cash form in your own pocket, then they charge you for money laundering. And when banks go bust, you have nothing.

      3rd world is real world, we eat as per our earning, and you live in hell, although you cannot afford you have credit card, keep paying interest until your death, you are enslaved by interest, and if heat gets unbearable, you suicide. Sorry but this is bitter truth.

      So please don’t mock of third world. I feel pity for you.
