Sometimes an Android looks a lot like an iPhone, and the Samsung Galaxy Ace GT-S5830 is one Android mobile that makes the most of that resemblance. Under the bonnet it is pure Android, released with 2.3, but from the outside it looks right to anyone comfortable with Apple's design aesthetic.

One of the main concerns with any smartphone is protecting the screen, and the Samsung Galaxy Ace GT-S5830 handles that through the use of Corning's scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass. The screen is a 3.5-inch unit with a 480x320-pixel resolution, which is more than acceptable for most uses. Where it shines is in its capacitive touch functionality, as the screen is responsive with a large touch area so you do not have to search for a sensitive spot.
