Features Of Samsung galaxy Ace 2
Going to the features, the phone has the android gingerbread (v2.3) OS with the 800MHz dual core processor. The phone also has sensors for proximity, gyro and accelerometer. And having A GPS support is something common for every phone in this price bracket. The extra features include:

The phone supports GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 in 2G network and HSDPA 900 / 2100 in 3G network. Quite common as in most of the android smartphones out there.
Since a slim smartphone is the rising demand among the smartphone buyers, Samsung has decided to keep the phone fairly slim with body dimensions measuring 118.3 x 62.2 x 10.5 mm. The phone is fairly light weight too, weighing 122g. Common to the Galaxy series, it has a touch sensitive menu button on the left and a back button on the right and a middle hardware button.
Since it’s intended to be a smartphone, it supports PLS TFT capacitive touch screen and 16 Million colors, a 3.8 inches screen with a resolution of 400 x 800 pixels with ~ 246 ppi pixel densities. Samsung hasn’t forgotten to put its signature on the phone with its proprietary touchwiz 3.0 user interface.
Nothing much to say in this category, the phone is akin to almost all smartphones. The support for 32GB microSD card is something that can be seen in almost every android smartphone. It has 4GB in-built with 768 MB of RAM.
The phone offers HSDPA (14.4 MBps), wi-fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth v3.0 with A2DP. The new connectivity option, the Near Field Communication (NFC) is optional in the phone.

The camera can record 720 p HD videos at 30 fps and enables video calling through its secondary VGA camera.
The phone has the standard 1500 mAh battery which is supposed to give a stand by of 640 hours on 2G network and 670 hours in 3G network. The talktime is no less, with a considerable 16 hours and 20 minutes and 7 hours and 30 minutes on 3G network.
Overall it seems that the phone will be a pretty good one alike all the Samsung galaxy smartphones out there. Although the android version could have been better like the honeycomb (3.0) version. Anyways, this can be actually given the title of ‘Successor’ of the Galaxy ace.
