Hello Everyone, I need help from you guys...

I am planning to buy a new mobile..I have been a user of Nokia E63 from the past one and half year, and I am from India...
Now I am stuck with four choices and I am confused which mobile to buy...

The four choices that I have as of now are:
1. Nokia C7
2. Motorola DEFY
3. Samsung Galaxy ACE
4. Samsung Wave II

I am also letting you know my usage on mobile:

1. Main thing is Signal reception
2. I take lot of pics as I hang out with my friends a lot...I use camera a lot (both for pics and videos)
3. I love to listen to music, and if my mobile plays good music...I would love it...
4. I watch videos, like video songs and movies on mobile... (You won’t believe but I also watched movies on my Nokia E63:-D)
5. I am not an extensive gamer but I do play games...
6. I Browse net on my mobile a lot...so I want a mobile to play videos embedded in a webpage, and websites like YouTube etc...My old Nokia E63 could not play videos from sites like GSMArena etc 
7. I used to check all my mails, and even reply to them through my Nokia E63...so I want the same from my new mobile also.
8. . I chat a lot :-)
9. I need applications like to save and hide my personal data….for example, I used to have HideMe in my Nokia E63 which used to help me protect my pics, videos and documents and also hide them…so it would be better if I had applications like this on my new mobiles also.

Since there is a lot of comments/questions on Samsung Galaxy Ace's battery capacity, i thought i will give details of my last battery life cycle.

Details - I am running battery saving app juice defender. My display brightness is set to 40-50%. 3G is on.

Duration of last battery life cycle (from fully charged to empty) - 26hrs
Idle time - 22hrs, which means i used the phone for around 3 hrs of which:
voice calls - 1 hr
other - 3 hrs (mostly browsing, messaging, and low use of some use of apps like maps, but no games)

I hope this will help you all to decide on how gud the battery life is.

Juice defender is definitely helping - it gives at least 1-2 hrs more battery time with at least double the voice call usage.

If other users can also post these details (which is available in settings>about phone>battery status), it would be really helpful for potential buyers

Not only me, many of the GSA owners facing the issue & expecting the solution from this forum. Before criticizing others you should have given the solution, if you know how to use.
