U r an asss hole .. fucker .. Galaxy ace is better than Y .. they say galaxy y is better because the cant afford ACE

Galaxy ace is way bettar.. Galaxy y idoes not even feel like a smart phone ... it has so small screen ... less screen resolution .. the picture is really blurry due to low screen PPI .. galaxy ace has better screen size , resolution, and pixel density .. ace also has more powerful processor .. and also has led flash. ..and even the camera is far more better than that on Y.. Those people who say y is better, they say that because they have not used ACE...

My husband brought the galaxy ace and I brought the galaxy y (so have seen and used both) - I prefer the galaxy y because it is better for smaller hands which I have :-) The galaxy y is cheaper but only by about £20 :-)

Reading thought this thread has been so enlightening. It tells me that, though we now have "Smart" phones, we do not have "Smart" people. Or maybe it is just that mobile phones bring out the latent idiot in everybody?

I had a galaxy ace, but i lost it! then i replaced it with the y and i'm very surprised that android work's faster on it! apps like angry birds are running much better on the y. they both have almost the same hardware, the y is smaller but the resolution is low. that's why it works so fast!

Everybody vote for the Galaxy Y, because its a cheap phone and everybody buy it. Also The Ace does have Chat, i have one and i can use the Chat. Where do you heard that?
Toyocrown (3:24 AM, June 23, 2012)
 The Ace is also in full white: http://usuariocelular.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Galaxy-Ace-blanco-telcel.jpg
Also the Ace has better screen and better camera ( with flashlight) and i have one for months and never crash it

 Ehhhh, The Ace has Android too.....
Toyocrown (3:17 AM, June 23, 2012)
The last Versions of the Ace (i,M and C) come with The same 832 MHZ Processor, also they come with Android 2.3.6, and the Young too. So your arguments are invalid
