The Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 is the latest smartphone from the Galaxy Ace line and a successor of the Galaxy Ace 3. The Galaxy Ace 4 being a Samsung entry-level device implies that you shouldn’t expect anything that fancy from it.
It also comes as a disappointment that the Galaxy Ace 4 is more of a downgrade from the Galaxy Ace 3. However, there are some fine aspects about the device that makes it worth a second look.
Here is what the Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 has to offer.
Display Size: 4.0 inches
Display Type: TFT capacitive touchscreen
Screen Resolution: 480 x 800 pixels
Screen Resolution Density: 233 ppi
Screen Protection: None
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 has the same exact display as the Galaxy Ace 3. You would have maybe thought the Galaxy Ace 4 would feature a slightly bigger display or even a gorilla glass layer but Samsung thought otherwise.
Frame Dimensions: 121.4 x 62.9 x 10.8 mm
Weight: 123.8 g
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 is slightly bigger than the Galaxy Ace 3. It is additionally, about 1 mm thicker than its predecessor is. The design concept is pretty much the same, but the Galaxy Ace 4 has less rounded corners.
One of the features that is consciously missing from the device is a proximity sensor. A proximity sensor is the feature that ‘tells’ your device to turn the screen off when you pick up a call.
This means that you have to double-tap the display in order to activate the screen during calls.
