Samsung Galaxy Ace 2

Looking for a reasonably priced mid-range smartphone from a premium brand? The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 is now finally arriving in Canada, through Bell and Telus.

Bell is already selling the phone in-store, though it isn’t expected to officially hit the carrier’s website until November 22nd. Meanwhile, Telus plans to sell the phone starting Wednesday.

Both carriers will offer the phone for $250 outright, though Telus will also give you the option of picking up the Ace 2 for $29 with a 3-year contract. As for color choices? There is both a black and white version, but Telus will initially only offer the white model.

The Galaxy Ace 2 might not be the most powerful device around, but not everyone wants a powerhouse. The Ace 2 is powered by a single-core 1GHz processor and has 1GB of RAM. Other specs include a 1500 mAh battery, a 5MP camera and a 4-inch display with a resolution of just 480 x 800.

Being just $50 less than an LG Nexus 4, is the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 worthy of your hard-earned cash? Honestly, it depends on what you are looking for. Not everyone loves LG and some people would much rather have a Samsung smartphone. That said, if you don’t care about the brand of a phone and don’t mind spending $50 more, the LG Nexus 4 is probably the wiser choice.

Any Canadian readers interested in getting their hands on the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2?
