The Ace wasn't bad to use out of the box, but its true beauty only appears when you install custom ROMs which provide a lot of optimization. I'm using Ice Cream Sunday by jusada on xda-developers, and I'm blown away by the speed and extra functions it has to offer (since it's CM7-based). Best thing is, it leaves out a lot of bloatware Samsung or your phone carrier puts in, so you get a lot more extra space - something to be happy about, since the Ace's limited internal memory is what I'm really pissed about. Try it out guys. You'll love your Ace more.

samsung should learn something from sony , even xperia mini is getting ics update and thers no word even on galaxy s or galaxy sl getting ics update.
Xperia mini is the best smartphone for its size. It may as well be one of the best performers for its price too.

prathamax, 08 Jan 2012n whats ur opinion about mini's battery life???its half tht of ace..may b tht doesnt matter mu... moreno mini is based upon qualcomm s2 chipset(8255) which is having arm7 architechture it is clocked at 1 ghz, having adreno 205 gpu which is 4 times faster than adreno 200 and other s1 chipsets,
so as it is based upon arm7 it support full adobe flash support.
while comparing to ace, mini gives better performance, android 4.0 update ,ace will stuck on 2.3, only plus thing is ace has a 0.5 inch which is neglegible..and i belive battery back is depends upon how user is using theire phone.
prathamax, 08 Jan 2012what is the use of this clarity by so called bravia engine if screen is that small...i hv trie... moreyes yes i agree dude..display is small,but other than that the performance of mini is great than ace..i've seen friends commenting about ace and xperia..we have also checked every performance based tests with xperia and ace......there are no comments to say about battery on both..drains quickly...
kiran jagtap, 08 Jan 2012looking at the price of ace and new comer ace plus. mini is far better guys, mini is getting... moreWell, for me screen size matters. That was the reason I bought ace. I don't think many phones will beat ace in terms of looks and feel. Everyone's creeping about battery life. How long. Does it last on other android phones anyway?
Samsung galaxy ace s5830
its super mobile
I buy it before 1month and I feel there is no any problem for operating n all
Before buying I get confuse whether to buy samsung gal ace or moto defy
But there is no radio in defy
Also look is not good as compare to ace
So bye sam gal ace by closing ur eye
shall i buy galaxy ace or apple ipod touch as my preference is to camera ,music;net surfing
kiran jagtap, 08 Jan 2012looking at the price of ace and new comer ace plus. mini is far better guys, mini is getting... moren whats ur opinion about mini's battery life???its half tht of ace..may b tht doesnt matter much to u rite??n videos looks really hd on 3 inch screen (bcoz its tiny)...but not if played on bigger screen...n another thing its use same armv6 processor like ace...which is pretty outdated...
Hi guy'z i would like galaxy ace but major problem of the mobile is battery backup is very
poor and if secondary camera is there then the price will be reasonable
one ok ..
Ace is better than Xperia Mini because the touch back and options buttons on the bottom of the screen in the Xperia Mini will spoil easily if you always let the phone remain hot for a long time after playing high-end graphics games. Somemore Ace has a bigger screen and better touch sliding sensitivity than Xperia Mini.
my question to gsm arena.
whether ovi store products like nimbuzz works in this mobile. and whether we could use 3g network to talk by using nimbuzz software on this mobile phone.....
samsung is the number one brand in the world...
smart phones having a smart look...samsung and htc are coming on that look...sony xperia phones are good for comparing to other sony phones..not with samsung or htc..because sony android lacks the image and it doesnt look like a professional phone...
what sony rocks is the camera and music...remember that is not the first thing for a smart phone
ace is one of the most sucessful mid range android devices because its perfect in its class out shading everything else.see the daily intersests.
Love this phone way better than Sony Xperia X8........battery life is not that good but most phones nowadays have same issue.
looking at the price of ace and new comer ace plus.
mini is far better guys,
mini is getting ics update, faster processor , gpu ,hd recording and better camera features , timescape user interface , bravia engine ,
only compramise in screen size 3 inch but that dosent matter most
the mobile features r good but battery,wifi & ram qulity & memory not useble
