29 Jan, 13 06:44 PM

Overview of Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos i589

The Samsung Company always works tirelessly in order to bring into the market new devices. This has seen it grow vastly and its sales volume multiply exponentially and has left its customers fully satisfied with its services and products. It can be deduced that the reason for Samsung’s flourishing is its innovativeness and use of sophisticated technology in its manufacturing processes. Its technological prowess has resulted in introducing yet another android powered smartphone into the Indian market; the Samsung galaxy Ace Duos i589. It is a phone with both the 2G and 3G networks. It comes with very unique features that include android Operating System and Qualcomm NSM7627 chipset. Its processing unit is 832MHz which has a data processing speed of 3.1 mbps. Other features include Java, HTML browser and GPS support.

Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos i589 Design and Build Quality

The Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos i589 brings another edition to add to Samsung's line-up of dual SIM phones. The candy bar style touchscreen has curvy edges and a plastic backing. It is a well-constructed device with a solid build quality.

User Interface and Comfort to Use Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos i589

As expected, Samsung's TouchWiz user interface sits on the top of the software on the i589. TouchWiz is known for being user friendly and this remains to be the case on this device. Android 2.3 Gingerbread is the brains behind the operation that allows for multi-tasking.

Messaging and Emails

Your text messages will show up in a threaded view for a chat-style experience. Multimedia messages can be sent and received on the i589 as well. Work and personal emails are also easy to setup and access.

Gallery, Photo Viewer and Video Player

To view your photos, you can access the gallery on the Galaxy Ace Duos i589. You can do some basic editors of your photos or upload them to sites such as Facebook. Videos in MP4, H.264, or H.263 can all be played on the 3.5 inch screen.

Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos i589 Music Player and FM Radio

Local FM stations can be listened to on the FM stereo feature to listen to your music or talk show while on the go. If you put your music in MP3, WAV, or eAAC format, you can alternatively listen to those. The loudspeaker sounds OK for music listening but you will more than likely opt for plugging in a 3.5mm headphone instead.

Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos i589 Camera and Image Quality

The lens quality on the i589 is very good though since it is only a 3MP shooter, if you print your photos, they turn out fuzzy.

Video Camera and Video Quality

The decent quality video camera will allow you to record moments to play back later.

Connectivity Options

This is one of the rare devices that have Dual SIM capability in CDMA and GSM. Its dual banded for 800 and 1900 MHz on CDMA and 900 and 1800 MHz on GSM. If you want to transfer files wirelessly, you can via the 3.0 Bluetooth. Otherwise you can hook up your USB port to your device for transferring to your computer.

Organizer and other Utility Tools

You will have a standard organizer and document editor at your fingertips.

Web Browser and Applications

Browsing the web is available with the Android browser. If you want to add applications to your Galaxy Ace Duos i589, you can go to the Google Play store to search for more.

Google Maps and GPS

The standard Google Maps in built into this Android device. Other map applications can be found on the Google Play store.

Distinctive Features

A nice additional feature is the e-book reader so you can read books right on the device. The screen size is a bit small though, so make sure you have your reading glasses on.

Value for Money and Verdict

With a price tag of Rs. 13490 (approx., may vary), you will be putting a rather decent invest into the I589. The fact the device has CDMA capability may cater to those who have frequent access to that technology. But in the end, the features are lacking for the pricing. Most noteworthy would be the lack of a flash on the camera. Unless you need the CDMA dual SIM capability, the Galaxy Ace Duos i589 is not the device for you.
