The Galaxy Ace Style: is Samsung going for irony?

The Galaxy Ace Style: is Samsung going for irony?I've never understood the logic behind giving entry-level products names that imply pretty much the opposite of what the product itself actually delivers.

One recent example that springs to mind is the Motorola Motoluxe, a desperately poor device that was about as far from luxury as it's possible to get. The newly announced Samsung Galaxy Ace Style, I fear, could be another.

The latest addition to the Galaxy smartphone family has been officially unveiled by Samsung after a few pics of the device hit the web last week, and like Galaxy Ace models we've seen in the past, it's every bit as basic as its looks suggest.

The 4in display is just a plain TFT panel offering a resolution of 800 x 480, while the thing is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor supported by 512MB of RAM.

Storage-wise you'll have to make do with just 4GB on the Ace Style itself, or pop in a microSD card for some more. 4G LTE support, as you'd imagine, is nowhere to be found, which should at least mean less potential strain on the 1500mAh battery.

In fact, probably the only clear positive we can identify at this stage is that the Ace Style will ship with Android 4.4 KitKat pre-installed.

But beyond that, we're left scratching our heads as to what exactly about the Samsung Galaxy Ace Style is either “ace” or “stylish”.

Maybe the price? We'll have to wait and see, since Samsung hasn't revealed it yet. What we do know is the Galaxy Ace Style will come in Cream White and Dark Grey, and should start its global rollout this very month.

I can't believe how biased this review is. The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3, which is the model in question here, also comes in a LTE version and a Dual sim version.

For a review that was posted only three days ago the author is obviously well behind the times and one has to ask if he has any idea what his talking about.

His review then goes on to say "we're left scratching our heads". Where does the "we" come from? Perhaps you want to be able to blame someone else for your lack of knowledge. Well, whether singly or plural, you should carry on scratching your heads because you wouldn't be able to find your backside with both hands.

a) this is not a review,
b) Samsung's naming sucks... to dubious levels...
c) The original Ace was a catastrophe....

Get over yourself, and don't read a minor news item as a review... It is, again, about Samsung's naming!!! Galaxy S 4 Mini, e.g. - a phone that shares little with the SGS4...

Not a review. Not. A. Review. Though, I will hazard a guess. Totally biased: the Style will suck.
