Samsung’s Galaxy Ace and S LCD i9000/i9003 are both sub-20k best selling phones in India. Which one is better? Okay, it would be wrong to compare phones in different price ranges. A better question would be “Is the S LCD worth the extra 5000 bucks?”. Well, here’s a quick comparison of the two.

Rest of the features are the same for both the phones. Both come with Android 2.2 pre-installed; Both support the same Operating Frequency; Both have Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and DLNA support; Both support GPS with A-GPS; Both have USB 2.0 Support and supports microSD & microSDHC cards upto 32GB.
The Samsung Galaxy SC LCD i9003 is a clear winner and is very well worth the extra 4500 bucks. For starters, the 0.5 inches of extra display makes quite a lot of difference. Ace’s resolution of 320×480 pixels is pretty low compared to today’s standards. The i9003 also boasts of a more powerful processor, much higher RAM and a much better screen. The Super LCD display is way better than normal LCD displays, though it cannot be compared with Samsung’s legendary AMOLED/SAMOLED displays.
