1) C7 is still slow -- 680 mhz (Ace is 800mhz)
2) C7 camera has no autofocus :(
3) C7 is Symbian, which means HEADACHE: the Ovi Store has very few free apps, the default web browser is very very slow, the UI is old as antique, and all web apps like chat or videocalls using fring are very laggy.
4) C7 has only 3 homescreens (Ace has 7).
5) C7 has NO ability to use LIVE WALLPAPER (Ace has).
6) C7 does not have Notifications Bar, so you have to dig settings for WIFI, BT in the Menu each time.
7) C7 doesnt have SWYPE, and typing on the old default keyboard is slow.
8) C7 doesnt have "gesture control", like swipe right to call, left to send sms, etc.
But I have to admit that I am a great fan of OVI Maps.

I just started exploring my new Ace and can access internet through Mobile Network. GPRS setting was installed and packet data on. My problem is I could not register my google account and android market through my Mobile Network. Is there any setting that I should modify? Or the only way to do this is through WLAN (wifi)?

I am posting the Basesband and the kernel version after the update as I had not noted down the version prior to the update. You can verify with your non updated mobile if there are certain changes.
Baseband : S5830DDKC1
Kernel version: 18.104.22.168-perf
mzboy, 07 Apr 2011CPU speed over 1Ghz is must for Android 2.3..so ace os is locked to 2.2 and its related updates.. :(Please get your facts before posting, there is no minimum CPU speed requirement for Gingerbread. This has been confirmed by Google, please read http://www.androidcentral.com/...glers-say-no
If there would have been a 1GHz processor speed requirement then LG Optimus One(with a 600Mhz processor) would not have been lined up for a Gingerbread upgrade in the month of May 2011.

And after updating the device, is the baseband and kernel version have changed or the same??
