The Ace 3 doesn’t offer enough, but asks for too much.

4G support was once appealing, but you can now buy better 4G phones for even less
Delivers plenty of power and a bucket-load of features at a temptingly low price
Functions are practical and straight-forward
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is a pretty decent Android smartphone. The design is nothing new but it does the job. Plus, response times are acceptable and the interface is relatively comprehensive. The camera isn't great, but the onboard audio player is actually quite good. Battery life could prove a real turn-off here, as the Ace 3 can only last a day on a single charge if you're pretty conservative with app use—bear that in mind before you buy! In the end, the Ace 3 managed to grab a third star by the skin of its teeth thanks to 4G connectivity. The spec sheet isn't particularly impress... Full review
Decent battery life, a bright screen and 4G
The Galaxy Ace range has traditionally been a lower-powered and lower-priced, and this has continued with the Galaxy Ace 3.
There are obviously going to be some trade-offs for the lower price, such as a smaller processor, smaller and lower-res screen, and smaller camera.
The Galaxy Ace 3 does come with 4G on board, though, and that is a big win for the handset. It brings the latest in mobile technology to the masses, and that alone will help the Ace 3 sell well.
It also comes with decent battery life, a bright screen and around 5GB of internal storage, which... Full review
A cheap 4G phone
Solid build quality but inconsistent performance
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 isn’t a bad device, Jelly Bean and TouchWiz provide plenty of functionality and the hardware ticks all the boxes with regards to what a modern mid-range smartphone should offer: 4G – check, multi-core processor – check, HD video recording and playback – check, premium user interface – check. But despite meeting these base requirements, it doesn’t stand out at all. Performance is just good enough, the camera is just good enough, the battery is just good enough.
If you want a good Samsung Galaxy Ace, the Ace 2 will still... Full review
Looking at the Ace 3 merely from a specifications standpoint, it's hard to see it as a very worthy upgrade over the already excellent Galaxy Ace 2. After all, for a device that follows its predecessor by more than a year, you'd expect more than merely an extra 200 MHz under the hood, 0.2 inches added to the screen, and 256MB more RAM. But hey, we guess those specs Samsung deemed worthy for the Ace lineup in 2013.
That being said, the Jelly Bean update to the Galaxy Ace 2 doesn't result in the greatest of user experiences - it's certainly not as smooth as many of the other Project Butte... Full review
