Ace vs. Ace 2
On paper, let us compare the two phones. Ace has a dimension of 112.4 × 59.9 × 11.5mm, while Ace 2 118.3 × 62.2 × 10.5mm. That means, Ace 2 design is longer, wider but thinner. Is this the influence of the wider screen also? Let’s see.

But unfortunately, the glass used on the display Ace 2 is not Corning Gorilla Glass as used in the Ace.

Although larger in design, weight carrying Ace 2 is lighter, which is 113 grams versus 122 grams belong to Ace. Go to the interface, if the Ace you will be accompanied by TouchWiz v3.0, then Ace 2 is using the newer UI, the TouchWiz v4.0. But again unfortunate, Ace 2 is the default OS Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Despite having the option to upgrade to 4.1 Jelly Bean though, likely Samsung does not provide an upgrade via OTA (Over The Air) aka you have to come to a Samsung Service Center closest to do it or use KIES.

Turning to the processor, the Ace is reinforced Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset powered with 800 MHz ARM 11 GPU Adreno 200, while his brother had used NovaThor U8500 chipset with a clock speed is still the same, 800MHz. Oops, do not be disappointed yet! Because even though the same speed, but proseso at Ace 2 has a dual-core, really. While embedded GPU Mali-400MP is. To support processor performance, the Ace 2 using 768MB RAM, three times greater than the Ace that only 278MB.
