I took day one htc sensation xl, one s and were both far from good,...also s3 wasn't perfect,...but now s3 is the best,...in my opinion of course, sensation xl is now also perfect, unfortunately one s isn't yet! These are my experiences! y

so gsmarena go on and on with comparisons with the experia u when the sola is the same price and size and wins on features.

I know that gsmarena say that they are independent but this is non stop distorted Sony and Samsung reviews.
did someone from Sony run over the reviewers dog our something.

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 is Greeaaatt. just one problem, my phone is experiencing lag quite badly sometimes. Is there anyway I can reduce lag and make the phone run smoother? Other than that, I would say this is the best Mid-range Android smartphone available right now. Unless having to wait for ICS is a problem, which it isn't for me :)

for camera use camera zoom fx! and eventually this will be fixed in ICS. no big deal.
use a screen protector mate. that's its use.
for gaming, only tried 2xl mx offroad and handles it easily.

Hi, everybody, I have been keenly following this blog for the last 2 orr 3 months. I have the following questions.

1)When Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 will be launched in India ?
2)What will be its price in India ?
3)Does the rear camera really has no zoom?
4)What about the front glass - is it really scratch proof ?
5)How long is its battery lasts with moderate use - Phone calls and very moderate net
surfing ?
6)Does the browser really supports Adobe Flash ?

Since this will be my first Android - is it worth a buy ? I have opted out of Sola because it has built-in battery.

Thanks in advance.

I've got this Smartphone & it's not that good.
1. No ability to zoom while taking picture.
2. The UI is slow and laggy, especially in TW4
3. Performance is horrible in gaming, the U8500 barely even beats Single Core SoCs
4. Plastic Screen is prone to scratches.

I'm also concerned about the screen. The original Ace had Gorilla Glass but apparently the Ace 2 doesn't (not according to Corning, anyway). I E-mailed Samsung a week ago to clarify but they haven't troubled to reply. Does the Ace have some other brand of glass protection?

I doubt Samsung will provide Jelly Bean Update to this.
Samsung doesnt put the mid range product customer as important.

I have some questions regarding this phone owing to discrepancy b/w the phones specs and the review here.
1. The screen has protection or not (review says scratch res. glass-specs hav no mention watsoever)
2. BT version-2.1(in review) or 3.0(in specs)
3.Flash support in browser(specs hav no mention-they say only HTML)
4.Ambient Light Sensor present or not?
Also all users who hav commented previously-i DO think that this phn will get ics as d video looked promising & reliable enough n google has promised that jb will be a step towards ending defragmentation meaning every phone that has ics will be capable of running jb
Now to the gsmarena team- some recent news suggested that adobe flash was taken off store. now as i haven't got a droid b4 idk what effect it will hav on this phn
will this phn ship with flash or do v hav 2 download it frm d play store?
PLZ ANSWER...........

> In reply to [deleted post]1. I rather take GB than "official" uncooked ICS.

2. Design of Xperia U looks hideous for the most, unless you are a gay.

3. It's a same dual core.

4. Xperia U has no sd card slot and it is the deal breaker for the majority.
