TheMan, 01 May 2012I'm fed up with your lies man You are really sick Nokia/WP fanboy you all are the same in lyi... moreTry 2.3.6 ddkq8...it is the best firmware for galaxy ace...It has updated gpu drivers..Even brother in arms 2 runs buttery smooth..
James Hunt, 01 May 2012my frnd has galaxy ace ,which is not rooted. But it lags ,evn angry birds lags on. I dont know... moreYou are wrong..I have galaxy ace as my secondary phone..It has no lag..It was a bit lag in angry birds rio in froyo..But with GB update in september it is buttery smooth..Even angry birds space is buttery smooth that is what your symbian phone can only dream about..I am playing games like PES 11,12...fifa12...Nfs hot persuit..Real Racing 2..
and many heavy games on my galaxy ace without lag..
TheMan, 01 May 2012I'm fed up with your lies man
You are really sick Nokia/WP fanboy you all are the same in lyi... moreI am NOT lying, my sister have a galaxy ace running 2.3.6, it doesn't lag much in scrolling in the UI (but it lags between homescreens), the touch screen is NOT responsive, it's really an nightmare, not to mention the very BAD RAM management, if you do multitasking, the lags appears, the battery sucks badly, and finally MANY apps aren't supported. I also know many friends with galaxy ace who mainly complain about battery life and the very bad ram management (you can say it's a budget droid, but at launch it wasn't budget at all)
about the flash suport:
http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-ace/449991-adobe-flash-player-samsung-galaxy-ace.html it's unofficial and many people don't know about XDA
hahaha thanks to iphone n android users, i can get nokias for cheap...keep gettin suck in by reviews n advertising users, the best reviewer is from ur own experience. popularity n sales doesnt tell the whole story...for best all round performance nokias r the best!!!
Nokia is sinking and WP is finish:
No micro sd
No usb mass storage
No tv out
No usb on the go
No hd scree
Lack of apps
Zune and skydrive sucks
No one support WP
WP is dead
KF, 01 May 2012Man you are disgusting, I trust GSMArena, the galaxy ace can serve well but after a while of u... moreI'm fed up with your lies man
You are really sick Nokia/WP fanboy you all are the same in lying
This video proves that Ace has Flash support
So stop lying man you are only humiliating yourself more
And about lag it does not exist, If you update Ace to latest update 2.3.6 "XWKTE" no root the phone will not lag and that if it lags in first place.
It comes from user experience, People root their phones and install pirated apps causing the phone lags so its not Samsung or android fault WHICH YOU WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND because WP and IPhone do not let you manipulate and tweak system files.
Anonymous, 01 May 2012LOL except for the fact that Nokia isn't associated with high class? Nokia N9 can be had for $... morec'mon don't get his comment, not all nokia fanboys are like that, and i must admit, the transition (or the way the transition was made by talking crap about their own products) failed, but that doesn't mean they doesn't have good products with good features/prices, and this doesn't mean samsung androids are better than other droids, people nowdays buy samsung because they trust it more than nokia, sony, htc, etc... but in reality they had the worst support, there is dozens of galaxy models out there and barely 2 of them are upgradable to ICS and also they are still releasing phones with 2.3 (mini 2, ace 2) but the avearage user on the street still buy them because he doesn't care about the OS version, he just want something to work, and he trust samsung for some reasons. so something is selling well =! it is a good product or a good value for money, there are MANY underrated products out there from Nokia, SE, etc... but they are not selling well or they are not appealing the average joe. :)
Anonymous, 01 May 2012the stupid useless small talk on this forum seems to me like a bunch of drunk teens are arguei... more1. You talk about brand image, Nokia stores closed down because they have no brand image, people don't rush to Nokia stores to buy the latest Lumia devices. Nokia had to give away Lumia 900 to get any decent sales figures for them.
After the promotion ended the Lumia 900 drops to 5th place; however notice that it's still heavily subsidized at $49.99
where as the Droid Razr MAXX at $199 is beating it in demand.
2. You talk about the 90% of the population, funny because currently Samsung sold more phones than Nokia. In China even Android has taken over Symbian. Nokia has had a monopoly in China for the past 5 years due to cheap prices; however as more countries become developed they realize that Nokia is crap.
68% of devices at the end of 2011 were Android.
3. Now lastly, you speak of battery life.
As you can see, the Nokia devices are beaten out by Iphone 4, 4S, Galaxy Nexus, Motorola Droid RAZR(Not maxx), Samsung Galaxy S II, Sensation 4G, Infuze 4G, and even the HTC Rezound in 3G Calling and 3G web surfing, even though these devices support a larger screen, higher pixel resolution, and dual core. These devices even beat out the Nokia N8 which runs on Symbian and is supposedly "battery friendly"?

I dont think ur thirst for class stretches u that far. Lol. N exactly who the hell r u to call any one poor? U r one sickening person. Just bcuz u do not hav enough brains to know the value of money doesnt mean the others dont. I pressume ur a spoilt brat from a rich society who thinks he is smarter than others. Feel a bit sorry for ur plight.
Anonymous, 01 May 2012if you have a hyundai with 100 hp over my mercedes and you overtake me in some situations and ... moreLOL except for the fact that Nokia isn't associated with high class? Nokia N9 can be had for $427. The HTC One X is $600-$699 depending on where you purchase it. The reason for Nokia's downward spiral is because the average price of their smartphones dropped dramatically to about 130 euros. If anything Nokia is like Honda or Toyota, since they use to sell in large quantities of their cheaper devices.
I think nokia fanboys must have some learning disabilities, only they would come up with these wild fantasies to deny reality.
All other manufacturers dropping Windows Phone platform citing reason is poor overall sales figures:
Normal person: WP7 must suck thats why no one buys it and it's being abandoned by manufacturers left and right
Nokia Fanboy: Nokia just kicked all their asses!!! they ran away crying!!!
Nokia sells total of ~80 million mobile devices in Q1, 11 million of those were smartphone making it only 13% smartphone volume vs Samsung 93.5 Million mobile devices of which 44% were smartphones driven mostly by Samsung Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note :
Normal Person: Samsung had an awesome quarter. Their devices are really selling even though they're expensive!
Nokia fanboy: Nokia still the best! they're MERCEDESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
Nokia gets downgraded by both Standard and Poor, and FITCH to JUNK STATUS for their stocks:
Normal Person: Nokia is in dire situations and doesn't look too good.
Nokia fanboy: Thats all lies!!! those investors at Standard and Poor and FITCH is just tarnishing Nokia's name so they can lower stock prices and buy stock on the cheap!!!!
the stupid useless small talk on this forum seems to me like a bunch of drunk teens are argueing on the theme: "if lamborghini is better than ferrari", because they never drove that cars, they have no driver license yet and anyway there are not streets an laws to allow the use at maximum potential of a lamborghini. so useless talk. for upper class of society, from a specific level the brand image is that counts. for this reason high class will never show in public with a casio watch, a kia car, a korean smartphone, no matter how good, beautiful,fast they are indeed. understood you poor users of korean toys? it is so hard to understand that 90% of people have another things to do on this planet than kissing their smartphone at every 10 minutes? they use it for simple talk and text. sometimes for short sessions of:photo,music and internet and they want to have battery minimum 3 days. this are the common needs, not dual core
if you have a hyundai with 100 hp over my mercedes and you overtake me in some situations and you have top speed with 20-30 km/h more than my mercedes, i do not give a f_ck, because no matter what superb cars hyundai or kia will produce in the next 300 years, they will never be over the image,pedigree heritage and long history of mercedes. this is why i choose a nokia n9 instead a plastic korean junky toy, and i will always take only nokia. i do not care what os it's inside
we,nokia users have the same thinking like mercedes drivers: we do not care too much what engine,what tech specs have the car we drive, as long is it a mercedes and iti si safe,comfortable,reliable, with brand image. nokia is nokia.go into a bling bling club and put on the bar a nokia n9 or lumia and you'll have a big advance from the poor geek with a cheap plastic korean toy. a doctor, a lawyer, an engineer, a pilot will choose nokia first above any korean trash because this brand is with he/her in the past 15 years and they do not want to make experiments
James Hunt, 01 May 2012my frnd has galaxy ace ,which is not rooted. But it lags ,evn angry birds lags on. I dont know... morePeople dont buy Droid just for the games,some of them use them for work and school projects.so they dont have to bring their bulky laptops to school or work.
James Hunt, 01 May 2012Desktop option was there in win8 dev prev too. U cannot remove a legacy at one goMicrosoft originally wanted METRO ONLY, on Windows 8, the developer preview was just that, a preview, it was a way for developers to familiarize themselves with Windows 8 and to start developing metro based applications.
Again where is your evidence that Metro was so "praised" on Windows 8?
