Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 available from £160

The Galaxy Ace 2, a follow-up to Samsung's first flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S, now costs £150 with an extra £10 top up at Dialaphone. The retailer is offering it in black or white on T-Mobile, Orange, O2 or Vodafone.

Launched at Mobile World Congress in February, the Galaxy Ace 2 comes with almost the same features as the original Galaxy S and the Galaxy S2. The dual-core system-on-chip is clocked at 800MHz, making it more than a match for the “Hummingbird” model in the Galaxy S.

The Ace 2 comes with 768MB of RAM - 50 per cent more than the Galaxy S, It has a 3.8in 800 x 480 pixel display, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a front-facing VGA one with HD video recording and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread with a layer of TouchWiz UI 4.0.

Where the Galaxy Ace 2 feels a bit lightweight is when it comes to onboard storage capacity. 4GB is decidedly too little, although there is a microSD card slot that allows you to add 32GB for around a tenner.

Other features include DLNA compatibility, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a microUSB port and much more. The Ace 2 is perfect for those who want a Galaxy-branded phone but want to keep away from the low-powered entry-level models.
