roadblock, 23 Mar 2011does ace has an alpha numeric keyboard for messaging?Yes! You can go to the settings and choose the keypad type.
No front camera? i dont call this a smartphone. cant even do video conference...
Apps that makes this Ace better,
1. PowerAmp - gr8 sound, gr8 output.
2. Astro file manager
3. Nimbuzz - if u love chattin
4. ALdiko 2 book reader
5. APP2SD - > move apps from phone to SD.
6. Google Goggles / sky map (Just Amazin!)
7. SMS Call Responder - since ace does not have 'reject call with SMS freature'
8. History Eraser - handy tool to erase logs, cache, and many other stuffs
9. android Tool Kit (Awesome App)
10. Flash Light - uses LED at the back as flash lite
All these are there in the android market, and are free...
These may not be the best list of apps but it will certainly make ur ACE better!!
If u hav a list of awesum apps for ACE, do post it..
Been using this phone from past 2 weeks now.. No problem at all... Yes, the battery back up is low.. but still manageable. I get more than a day of charge with average use.
Sound quality is not as gr8 as musicXpress, but felt much better after installin PowerAmp. Picture quality is decent, touch - soft and responsive. Have installed around 50 Apps, no problem. Phone runs smoothly as it was runnin on the first day.
No hangs while playin NFS, angry birds or Tower raiders.
Overall, a gud phone, well worth the money. An ACE in its own Race.

Randy, 25 Mar 2011Juz bougt tis couple of days ago..it look nice,fast and feels great in hand...but the battery ... morei've been using this phone since 2 weeks.
it has everything perfect except the internal memory,video and battery backup.
i have compared it with my bro's galaxy S i9000.
everything is almost same including performance and time taken to open an app.
its pretty good in this price range.
and compared to 1st week,i feel the battery is becoming better.
but still not great battery backup.
but also not bad.
Juz bougt tis couple of days ago..it look nice,fast and feels great in hand...but the battery in my unit kinda weird..i fully charged n it can only hold for 6 hour in intensive use..is tis normal for every ace user out there?

I have just installed around 10 applications and has only 39mb left. Imagine if you have only 150mb, yikes!!!!
