Its just da internal memory that is too low otherwise its nice product in the galaxy series i hv eva worked wth recently... am loving it anyway.
i m using this phone but not satisfied with their performance because internal storage is to low and if you download any app from android market it take place into internal memory external memory is totally useless 2nd thing it goes to sleep mode any time and dust penetration on camera screen so we can not click good pic............ i just suggest you don't purchase this phone.
so i suggest you
A good phone for starters, but it is limited by its internal memory of just 158 MB. External memory up to 32 GB is useless because most of the programs can be installed on the internal memory only. Another major problem is that once it goes to sleep (screen blacks out) when run on wifi, email or other activities simply do not work, unless manually refreshed. This is not a problem when it runs on 3G. It is rather a disappointing phone.
This for accepts micro SDHC memory cards (max. 32 gb.) according to the manual.
it is a good fone buh doesn't support sam new apps making it an old fone...
I have been using Samsung Ace S5830 for last one and half years and i had to charge it every day.But last week i replaced a new battery which was Taiwan made.After replacing the battery i changed some of the settings like Zero Brightness,3G to 2G network and disabled the Bacgkround data option.And now its giving me 2 and half days battery backup.
it's swift and handy...but some new app not compatible with it, despite of it's capability for higher OS update.

The Ace 3 is out now and looks good. Otherwise the Sony Xperia GO looks like a good modern phone for this price range/class.
susie q, 26 Oct 2013would like to up grade phone memory. how can I do it I posted an opinion, look into it. You must be brave and tech savvy to do, but it is possible to "fake" a memory upgrade with a fast sd-card.
shabari, 22 Oct 2013Hi, can this mobile be upgraded to latest Android version genuinely?It can't. The last official release from Samsung is Android 2.3.7 (Gingerbread). There are some unofficial ROMS based on CM10/Android 4.2/Jelly Bean for this phone but it is not recommended because the phone has limited RAM and internal memory - You will slow the phone down and the battery will drain faster.
I have this phone for almost 2 years now. Great little phone except for the small internal memory. To bypass/fix it follow the following steps: Get a fast SD Card - more than 2GB, backup the one you have because you will wipe it. Root the phone and install CWM5. Partition the card in CWM boot menu. Create a partition bigger than 1GB -bigger the better, keep swap smallish or none. Then copy onto the visible part of the card The Ultimatum ROM (a CM7.2/Android 2.3.7 based rom). Install it through the CWM boot. In the installer use the SD-ext option, the partition you created on the SD card will now be added and the Android OS will think it is part of the internal memory. NEVER REMOVE THE CARD WHEN THE PHONE IS ON. The phone will take longer to boot, but my Ace think it has 2GB internal memory, and it is quick after boot.
My advice is a brief overview, spend the hour or two to study the guides on How to Root the S5830, The Ultimatum install procedure and the SD-ext plugin. All advice available on xda-devolopers site.
Note: You are possibly voiding your warranty if you follow my advice - read up on how to install the official Samsung ROM through Odin (also on xda) if you need to take the phone in, reverse everything or bricked your phone. Also all data (incl contacts, messages, photos, videos, whatsapp archives etc) and apps on phone and sd card will be lost so back them up with Titanium or similar tool, and copy the contents to your PC. Make sure that the SD card is fast, I had a slow card on my GF's phone and the phone froze until I bought a new card and started over.
