Just bought this unit and I'm very happy with it. Compared to the Optimus One which frequently hangs and gets touch-unresponsive (especially during fast texting and app use), the Galaxy Ace works likes a charm and is actually a very good alternative to the more expensive Galaxy S.
is this phone upgradeble to touchviz 4 & androin 2.3...???

uz, 03 Mar 2011i have this phone u better buy lg optumus one ....ace battery sucks...........................Hi Uz, I have this phone and on day 1 battery only lasted for 6 hrs due to heavy usage. (I used it like a laptop) However I searched the net and found how to optimize android battery. I'm also using a widget that allows me to quickly turn on/off wifi|bluetooth|gps|aSync|brightness this all in conjunction with Advance task killer now battery lasts for almost 1.5 days. I hope this helps you.
I'll be soon updating my blog on battery life of ACE at http://tusharg.blogspot.com
How does this compare with the Motorola Defy?
So Galaxy S is the iPhone 3Gs copy, and Galaxy Ace is iPhone 4 copy. Samsung should wait until iPhone 5 is announced, so Galaxy S II could be an iPhone 5 copy.

ah why is there so many phones being made that can't handle adobe flash 10? it may be resource hungry but with the option to switch the plug-in off it would be great on all phones.
can you tell me how much lag did you encounter while playing demanding games?

What about the xperia neo which is also in the middle end range and it trashes the ace in every aspect! So, I'm wondering why did gsmarena ignore this phone as an alternative.
Samsung may be strong in their high end devices, but no offence when it comes to their low-mid end phones they just suck. Their specs are far inferior to other companies.
And the xperia neo from S/E is a good example.
Sorry, I didn't mean that S60v5 was faster, I mean ALOT faster.
Hahaha, just compare how an old Nokia 5800, with a ARM11 437Mhz and no GPU is faster than all those "amazing" Androids.
Seriously, it's inaceptable that a phone with such high clock lags like that... But that's something quite usual on the Android realm, all "non high-end" phone lags. People love to bash Symbian but take a look at most of these Android phones, this thing lags even on menu scrolling, Jesus. Even S60v5 phone were faster than that, with alot less powerfull CPUs and not even a hardware accelerated UI.
How can this phone lag with 800Mhz CPU? Jesus.
this device will be much better if it has more powerful ram and 480p video recoring. i think i would rather buy wild fire S or motorola defy. :p
Couldnt be the video here on ACE, refined with software?
Ive read somewhere this was already done on one Droid phone
The upcoming Sony Ericsson Neo and Pro have better specs than this phone- they come with 1Ghz processors, 8.1 mpx cams, larger 3.7" screens and ,android 2.3. Why should I even think of buying this phone???
Guys, all of you that are prefering defy over this, dont. defy(milestone 1/2 also ) releases some radiations that are hugely harmful and can cause cancer. those who want to buy can take from http://www.letsbuy.com/mobile-phones/gsm-handsets/samsung-mobile-phone/samsung-galaxy-s5830-free-mini-speakers-worth-1290-p-12258.html with free speakers worth rs 1290
