Compared – Samsung Galaxy Ace Vs Samsung Galaxy Mini [Review & Detailed Comparison]

Today I am not going to compare handsets from two different companies, but from the same companies. It is very much common; most of the upgraded handsets take the place of previously available handsets, recently we have written a comparison of Samsung Wave II.

Samsung Wave II is the upgraded version of Samsung Wave. Samsung has discontinued the production of Samsung Wave from a long time now and is releasing the units of Samsung Wave II. Now I am going to compare two phones, both of these phones lie in Galaxy Series, Samsung Galaxy Ace Vs Samsung Galaxy Mini.

Before looking into the comparison, you can have a look at the individual specifications of both the phones

On the back panel, it is having rounded looking 5 MP Camera with Speaker design. It is having display of 3.5-Inches TFT Capacitive Touchscreen with 16M colors and offers the resolution of 320 X 480 pixels.

Samsung Galaxy Mini also has the same looks as of Galaxy Ace, but in comparison Samsung Galaxy Mini looks like a strong and solid smartphone. It offers you the appealing business phone look. It also has the same 3 buttons on the front panel under the Touchscreen and has the rounded edges.

Talking about the processing power, Samsung Galaxy Ace’s performance is blazed with 800 MHz ARM 11 Processor, Adreno 200 GPU and Qualcomm MSM7227 Chipset. On the other hand, Samsung Galaxy Mini is having 600 MHz Processor.

Storage Capacity

Internal Memory of both the phones is almost equal because Samsung Galaxy Ace is providing 158 MB Internal Memory and Samsung Galaxy Mini is providing 160 MB. Both the phones have the capability of expanding the memory with MicroSD Card support upto 32 GB.

Camera & Photography

Camera is always the most crucial feature of any phone whether it is a smartphone or simple phone. A question for you: which you will choose if you have two choices, 3.15 MP or 5 MP? Of course the answer is “5 MP” because it is offering the higher resolution.

Samsung Galaxy Ace is having the camera of 5 MP with LED Flash and offers the image resolution of 2592 X 1944 pixels. Other features of the camera are like autofocus, geo-tagging, face and smile detection.

On the other side, Samsung Galaxy Mini is having 3.15 MP Camera with the Image resolution of 2048 X 1536 pixels. It is only featuring Geo-tagging.

No issues, because both phones have the same video recording quality, with QVGA @ 15fps and both the phones do not have front-facing camera.

  1. one of my friend is selling his samsung wave I for cheap price to buy Wave II
    What a mad guy…!

  2. I have seen most of the comparisons you have posted on your site and they are really good :)
    One major point you should bring to notice is about support for adobe flash on these mobiles.
    Like Samsung galaxy Ace does not supper flash while galaxy mini does.
    This is due to different processor architecture. Galaxy Ace scaled down version of for more market reach but in this effort samsung has compromised on flash player support. I have seen numerous blogs and forums on the net where users were disappointed after buying Galaxy Ace and learning that the phone cannot support Flash.

  3. Gyz i bought samsung galaxy mini for rs.10000 inr from delhi
    it is really a gud phone …. I think galaxy ace is for rs. 13500
    Difference is rs 3500
    Except camera no major difference is there
    so i choose galaxy mini
    whats ur choice?

  4. Bought myself a GT-5570 which I had great expectations on (it’s entry-level cut put aside). However, I obviously received a broken phone. It’s uptime never exceeds 48h, even when **# factory reset with no installed applications. Simply broken. When the warranty errand is closed I will probably hold my cash and get myself a GT-5830. Or perhaps not. I’m not really sure just yet.

  5. the two dots on both phones …. its not front camera…. i know both r 3g phones but no front camera is there
    thats proximity sensor…. for detection of things
    it is actually useful when attending a call…. when u put phone near ur ears then sensor detect it and turn phone’s touch off…
    so if u want video conferencing then don buy it

    I’m vote one sticket for Samsung Galaxy Ace and I have own one. I’m realy interested in Ace’s design, Back and Menu button hide when not used. Camera 5 megapixel with flash gives good photos and Web Browser too fast

  7. I have purchased the Samsung Galaxy mini and I am proud of what I have chosen:-)
