One thing wanted to add:
Camera and Flash are way beyond my expectation. The pics are coming pretty good and the tiny winy flash strong enough to light up a room and there is not much shutter lag. Aquiring focus is a bit slow (1-1.5 Secs) but worth it

Right now, I havent fiddled a lot and it goes through the day (morn to even) with 10% left. 2Hrs music, 1 Hr wifi, 1 Hr call and in between games sometime. I feel there is lot of optimization I have to do from my part to improve it.
I feel it might last 24 Hrs after doing something I learnt today. Will try out during weekend

Other:58MB in 3..Avail: 84MB+52MB in 10
It adds up to 198
I am not sure when the amount of RAM comes into play, but opening multiple apps is not a problem till now (Honestly I havent explored enough)
I bought this form Samsung Brand store in Forum Mall, Koramangala(3rd Floor)
I was going to buy Optimus one..but after looking at this babe..its diffcult to choose anything else + there is the concern of dirt accumulation in the LG set

galaxy ace looks like a very attractive mid-range android phone, im seriously considering buying this phone. It's got everything I need and the price is so much better than high-end smartphones so..

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2011-02-08 12:15 from 9x82 - click to readJust bought the Ace yesterday in Bangalore. Now available only in Samsung stores, the seller said it arrived yesterday evening only and we were probably the first to buy in Bangalore.
Price 15.8K, we haggled and got it down to 15.5K. Just had it for few hours and YES i m loving it!
Only, only downside will now is cheap bundled earphone. Hellp my Corby pro had way better one.
Do ask if any one has any queries in particular

Android is the ultimate OS in terms of performance and functionality..

everyone who is complaining about this phone to look too much like an iphone has to know 3 things:

1st: the iphone is based on samsung technique
2nd: the design isn't really a "design" it's minimalism, a black box with an apple. everyone can "design" that
3rd: you're just jealous because now you get a better phone with the same look for half of the price + a lot of freedom included :P

A cheap wanna be iPhone look alike. This is what makes an iPhone look bad. No wonder they pushed out so many phones. No thoughts in the design but copy everyone else. Sad, sad, sad.
