The device is about as entry-level as you can get. Simply put, the specs would've been impressive in 2010. It comes with a 1GHz, single core processor, 1GB RAM, 5MP camera, VGA front facing camera, all sitting behind a 4-inch, 480 by 800 resolution screen. It comes in white and cobalt and packs a modest 1,500mAh battery.
The Galaxy Ace II won't turn any heads, that's for certain. However, it is at least priced appropriately. It'll go for $250 outright with no contract. Of course, the 8GB, unlocked Nexus 4 is only $299. So for an extra $49 you can have better, well, everything.
There are still demographics out there that could find a use for the Galaxy Ace II. If you don't want to spend a lot of money and need a back up phone, for instance. Or if your kids are getting to that age when they can start having a cell phone, this could be good for them as well. Is anyone going to get the unimpressive Galaxy Ace II when it gets released?
