Entry-level Samsung Galaxy Ace Style smartphone available worldwide

Galaxy Ace Style, the entry-level pipsqueak which Samsung unveiled last week in Germany, is now available worldwide. The smartphone runs the latest Android 4.4 / TouchWiz combo, but apart from that, it's one of Sammy's modestest offerings. The handset has a 4-inch 480x800 (WVGA) TFT display, a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU, a mere 512MB RAM, 4GB of storage space, a pair of 5MP auto-focus rear camera and 0.3MP fixed front camera, and is powered by a 1500mAh battery. According to Samsung, this is a phone for the "young, expressive consumer".



The new Samsung Galaxy Ace Style will be available globally in Cream White and Dark Gray beginning in April. According to a Samsung rep, the European price will be between $276 to $413 (200-300 EUR). Pretty underwhelming, considering how much the Moto G offers for less than $200 in the US, and $223 (£135, 163 EUR) in Europe. Hopefully, the Korean giant will appease the entry-level segment with something more generous.

$276 is still way too much for this device. Something's wrong. The Samsung Galaxy Light (in the US) is only $240 at T-mobile (and only about $150 on Newegg or eBay). That thing has 1.4 ghz quad core processor, 1gb of ram, and 8gb of storage. It can play Iron Man 3, Asphalt 8 at medium settings, Riptide GP2 with almost max settings, and Thor TDW without a problem. It's cool that this Ace Style has 4.4, but that doesn't mean 512mb of ram is enough. Apps still need enough ram to run. Geez. That price better be less than $150, Samsung.

Samsung slaps a stripe on the back, rotates "Samsung" 90 degrees, then calls it Style... Anyway, I think it looks okay. Like many other phones, it may look better in real life than on renders. Still, I don't think it's worth being called Style, and the price tag and the specs make this device "ugly".

I paid $120 for my Galaxy Light (used, but immaculate condition). Same eBay vendor has them new for $170. Best deal on a budget phone there is.

Definitely. I got this phone during a promotion, and I didn't really need it. I thought it would be just a crappy low class phone from Samsung (because of the low-end Galaxy stereotype, lol), but then I was blown away. It's fast. It powerful. It feels nice in hand. It has NFC and LTE. And the display... it's like the best 480p display I've ever seen. Best deal on a budget phone, I agree.

Where's "style" in this crap! Just another crap phone with a new name but same ol design. The price with the hardware all sucks.

Yeah currently I think that the low end segment is Samsung's weakness...They should make better cheap devices instead of overpriced craps like these

Yet here I am thinking that well-established manufacturers would step up their game against Chinese companies and at least add 1GB of RAM to their low-end devices.

Galaxy ace style is almost identical to galaxy s duos 2 s7582. The only 2 place it excels over the s7582 is NFC and 4.4kitkat which doesnt justify the absurd price. Duos 2 is just 199$ off contract even less on some vendors, duos 2 even has 768mb ram. Oh and ace style also lost the dual sim capability... So meh!

Maybe the specs sheet is incomplete, but this doesn't even support base HSPA??!?!?! Moto G is the obvious choice, or is anything from 2-3 years ago used/like new like an unlocked Galaxy S2 or Galaxy Nexus. You can find a brand new Galaxy Nexus GSM for about $200. For less than $300 you can find a 16gb Nexus 4. Hell, you can find a Nexus 5 for less than the 300Eu supposed upper cost of this phone.

Ace style has hsdpa and hsupa. This will alienate samsungs own galaxy win which are quad cores and the better dual core series like the galaxy core and galaxy s duos 2 so the price could be wrong... This would probably end up in the 150-180$ range...
