I have this phone and it is great especially when u download few things from android market and samsung apps (FB,Twitter,few games and other stuff) . Phone runs smoothly (800 MHz processor). Only thing that u wont like if u buy is battery. Its great if ur not using it often (i use 2g). Playing games,gps (mybe wi fi) will use up ur battery for surely (dont buy it if u plan to consume battery it too much). Playing music and calls are cool they wont use up ur battery. Except for battery everything is GREAT i can tell u that for sure because i owe it. But what can u expect for little less that 200 Euros. Its on v2.2 froyo and it can be upgraded to v2.3 . And if u have some doubts between Ace and Wildfire S just buy ACE

New firmware update is available to Sri Lanka and India. New firmware update supports Tamil languge (and Hindi too).
if Samsung can do it why not Google. Google's ignorance towards Indic languages is regrettable.

I just bought my Galaxy Ace and I love it! =))
It's very fast and responsive. And the screen was like superb, very crisp and very clear. I've already set mine to minimum brightness, and yet the screen is still very clear and illuminated. Camera is also very good, and i must say the flash is so blinding when you do self-capture!HAHA but no prob with it, you have an option to switch it off.^^, Battery is very good in stand by, but when in use battery really drains fast. It's like a vampire sucking blood! LOL but that's understandable esp for a smartphone with all those functionalities as much as that of a laptop. SO AS TO SAVE BATTERY, i switched off the wifi, bluetooth and gps, when not in use and avoid playing games as much as I can! haha.
One thing I love about it, is that you can have your Facebook and Gmail accounts in sync with the phone, so when you're in wifi, you get notifications re: facebook and gmail, and that really keeps you updated & connected with friends all the time. BTW, you actually have an option whether to set the SYNC either manually or automatic. Another thing that i like, is the lock screen. The default was the sliding mechanism (to unlock), but since there's an option there to make your own pattern, i go with the pattern so It's like 'connecting the dots'. =))))
Goodluck with your ACE!
