Yes battery life is tricky. On day 1 it only lasted for 6 hrs. However I was using it more like a laptop than a phone. My phone was constantly on! Now after using it for more than 2 months my battery lasts more than a day. Also I have learned from my mistakes I'm not running too many services in background and not auto updating status of facebook, twitter and various emails in background. Btw... here is my blog that may help some people http://tusharg.blogspot.com/20...e-s5830.html
Sahib, 27 Apr 2011It happened to me too,that is because you have older version of Kies....go to http://www.samsu... moreThanks Sahib
I've already updated the version of Kies to 18.104.22.16832_12, still there's no option for Firmware Upgrade and the only notification was "This is the latest firmware." but I didn't update anything.
For all those who said that this fone is Scratch Proof or Gorilla Glass or what ever.. Its all bullshit.. I had a small scratch on my screen.. Dunno how it happened..
So do use a Screen Guard..
For those who are having problems with the battery try the app juice defender(the paid version is better than the free one) from android market...helps save battery

Does anyone one know how we can switch to the secondary camera when using video calls application (like fringe)?

hey plz someone tell is video-calling is supported on ace i know there is no secondary cam than why gsm mentioned this in features in specs....plz reply
Anonymous, 29 Apr 2011Please review 2.3 upgrade in Ace....For ME, the 2.3 update was superfine :)
The phone starts up with Russian language since the firmware region is Serbia, so you have to change that manually, The battery and WiFi icons changed, the fonts were changed for the desk and the lock screen clock.
Also for SOME PEOPLE NOT ME, auto focus was not present in the camera after flashing, but on re-flashing the ROM, the problem was gone ;)
Graphics and performance were hugely improved, scores on various benchmarks was improved, and FPS improved by about 10FPS. Hope that helps :)
