Nexus 10 and Nexus 4, it’s hard to remember that there are other devices out there awaiting release. Such as the Samsung Galaxy Ace II, which according to Mobile Syrup, is coming to Bell in Canada on November 15.
The device is about as entry-level as you can get. Simply put, the specs would’ve been impressive in 2010. It comes with a 1GHz, single core processor, 1GB RAM, 5MP camera, VGA front facing camera, all sitting behind a 4-inch, 480 by 800 resolution screen. It comes in white and cobalt and packs a modest 1,500mAh battery.
The Galaxy Ace II won’t turn any heads, that’s for certain. However, it is at least priced appropriately. It’ll go for $250 outright with no contract. Of course, the 8GB, unlocked Nexus 4 is only $299. So for an extra $49 you can have better, well, everything.
So who would want the Galaxy Ace II?
There are still demographics out there that could find a use for the Galaxy Ace II. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money and need a back up phone, for instance. Or if your kids are getting to that age when they can start having a cell phone, this could be good for them as well. Is anyone going to get the unimpressive Galaxy Ace II when it gets released?
