The price of Samsung's Galaxy Ace 4 LTE is yet to surface at this juncture. Considering the fact that the device is targeted at those on shoestring budgets, Galaxy Ace 4 can be expected to have an 'affordable/budget' price tag when it goes up for sale on 17 October in the UK.


Samsung Galaxy Note 4 should do well to compete with other budget smartphones in the UK such as EE Kestrel, Vodafone Smart 4 Turbo/Smart 4 Power and the popular Moto G.

The value-for-money gadget segment in the United Kingdom seems to have got the much required impetus, after Moto G sales (last quarter) proved that people still preferred value-for-money devices, over high-end ones.
