I live in india n i had updated my ace to gingerbread through kies.i was truely dissapointed.
i'll tell u what exactly are the changes.
1.faster interface but not too good to wooo on it
2.change in notification window
3.a slight change in layout in now playing window.the album art is bigger.
4.cam can record videos at 640*480 resolution.
WHAT IS DISSAPOINTING:
1.no change in visuals.All is as same as froyo or i must say froyo sticked with a gingerbread label on it.
2.i didnt observed any major performance increase in gameplay
3.the update removed pre installed skins from the messaging app.
4.GINGERBREAD EATS A LOT OF RAM!!THE USAGE IS ALWAYS AROUND 200!!
5.STill NO EQUALIZER OPTION IN MUSICplyr!
6.The window transition lag while adding widget or selecting wallpaper..scrolling lags sometimes.
All in one not a proper update i can say.!!
THINK BEFORE U UPDATE!
i wish i wud roll back to froyO..
Hi Guys am thinking of zt Ace but does any one of u know if facebook flash applications can work on it? like games eg. farmville and so on?
saurabhaj1, 01 Sep 2011really dissapointed with 2.3.4 gingerbread no lock screen crt animation on it, so by laym... morecrt animation only works on custom rom on ace check youtube and search on how to install coderom v1 there you can learn how to have a crt animation on your ace.i upgraded my ace with coderom v1 and installed a honeycomb theme and transparent app drawer on touchwiz ui.this phone really rocks even battery sucks but its ok if we know how to manage your ace battery life then you don't have any problems.just always think ace is not a high end phone its just a mid range droid so don't expect too much.
Hi Friends, Did anyone able to upgrade to Gingerbread in India through Samsung Kies? My phone is still in Froyo and everytime I check for Firmware update, Kies reports that Phone is already on the latest firmware.

after all most awaited gingerbread update is out on a go. love to see the official update from samsung, and samsung should keep this good work, just like nokia provide very early updates. my first samsung phone and get a chance to update a phone in the very first month of purchasing. definately a fantastic phone as far as features is concerned. only downside is hd gaming which it does not support out of the box. but some sites are providing hvga hd games works fine on my set. really busy in exploring the new gingerbread. should discuss the changes in future. but it improves my quadrant benchmark scoring to en extent.
hey guys.....jst gt my samsung galaxy ace officially updated in india to gingerbread 2.3.4
