I had given my battery usage in 2 prev posts. i feel the battery is getting better after some charge cycles. I got 41 hrs battery life during last cycle and i have almost 15% battery left now. I had low voice call usage - 37 mins, and moderate other usage - display on for 2.5 hrs - i did a lot of browsing, maps and some games and apps.

I did have a look at wave 2, but didnt go for it bcos of BADA os. i think android is far better. u might not get the bada version of many interesting apps.

I thought this information would be useful to users. I have taken this from wikihow. I found it useful because i used to charge Li-ion batteries like Ni-cd, which now i know is wrong.

DO NOT fully discharge a lithium-ion battery! Unlike Ni-Cd batteries, lithium-ion batteries' life is shortened every time you fully discharge them. Instead, charge them when the battery meter shows one bar left. Lithium-ion batteries, like most rechargeable batteries, have a set number of charges in them.

Stick to Android and get better apps from Android market which has 200,000 apps now.

Sound quality is good. But battery drains a little more compared to other samsung devices.

No, the C7 is NOT BETTER than anything, much less the galaxy Ace.

While C7 does have a better camera (but without auto-focus), its Symbian OS is very painfully slow, and features are still very limited. So far, Nokia only added multi-touch to Symbian 3, but everything else is same -- web browsing is soooo very slow, downloading is even slower, and syncing is problematic. Don't even try chat, IM, or using a widget for IM -- the OS will freeze. These problems Nokia cannot fix until now.

Perhaps if you will buy C7 just to use the camera.. but I advise you buy a stand-alone camera if that is the case -- its much cheaper.

@prasanth
Yep, I agree. I take 800 mhz+278mb RAM, over 600 mhz + 512 RAM anyday. My galaxy Ace is chok full of apps and LWP, but it still works smoothly, no hanging up or freezing.

Most people over-rate the importance of RAM. Speed is more impt than RAM, in actual use. You only need big RAM if you multi-task or use many apps all at the same time (which I rarely do), but you need high CPU speeds coz it affects how fast your phone responds to swiping, internet browsing, edit docs, syncing, emailing, etc.

Over-all I am happy with the Ace coz -- aside from the good 800 mhz CPU speed, built-in froyo 2.2, 5 mp camera with LED flash, and 3.5" screen with 16mil colors -- it comes in-built with all the apps you will need such as document editor (ThinkFree), task manager, file manager, SWYPE, and Google Maps + Navigation.

For about $350 unlocked, that's a Good Value. And the Ace performs admirably in everyday use.

Go get the Ace. I recommend it.
