I have not seen much difference in these models but quite surprised seeing the difference in price. Samsung Galaxy Ace is one of the best selling Smartphones ever. You must believe Ace Duos is just an upgrade to that model and it is causing the difference in price. But my bet will be LG Optimus Net Dual.
