I might go with Samsung Ace as HTC Sensation is not available in my country India. I need to buy a new phone asap as i have to go to France in a week's time. I thought of buying a Samsung Nexus S from Nice, France but it's hell expensive for me and also, mobile phones are expensive in Europe plus i don get a warranty in my resident country i.e. India.
I have squared down to Samsung Galaxy Ace, please share any feedback about it, if you have any. I'll be thankful to you for your help.
And Thanks already for replying to my previous post.
Galaxy Ace is getting an official upgrade to gingerbread 2.3.3 within the next 25 days, please read http://androidos.in/2011/05/samsung-gingerbread-update-galaxy-s-ace-fit-gio-mini-tab/
Its good to see that Samsung is also updating the lower end phones like Fit/Pop/Gio, I wonder who will roll out the update first Samsung or LG.
No... video is not QVGA... when you update your firmware to android 2.3, it becomes 640x480. i know because i'm using Gingerbred in this baby...
I want to buy a smartfone please tell me which of the two is the best; SAMSUNG ACE or HTC wildfire s ?>

Besides, just to set it straight, here are the differences between Optimus 1 and Ace:
1) Ace has better Camera -- Ace has 5mp camera with LED flash; optimus has only 3mp, with no flash :(
2) Ace has bigger screen -- Ace is 3.5"; Optimus, 3.2"
3) Ace has faster CPU -- Ace is 800mhz; Optimus, 600mhz
4) Ace has document viewer AND EDITOR -- Ace has ThinkFree viewer and editor pre-installed; Optimus only has a doc viewer.
5) Ace has BETTER LCD screen with 16 million colors -- Optimus has only LCD, with 256 K colors.
6) Ace will also be upgraded to Gingerbread -- Optimus, same.
7) Ace has better sunlight legibility -- brightness is better than Optimus due to LCD with 16 million colors.
So you see, for a few more bucks than Optimus, you get a lot of extra features with ACe.
AnonD-2117, 16 May 2011These restarting hanging lagging problems which i see in the comments are taking me away from ... moreYeah. Due to low Ram in ace and Bigger screen despite being Hvga resolution. I am also avoiding It and getting optimus one or wait for htc salsa(3.4" screen).
These restarting hanging lagging problems which i see in the comments are taking me away from buying this phone...........are these problems so very common ?
so sad..my lovely device keeps lagging while typing sms.need to reboot everyday.firmware upgraded by kies,hard reset done,RAM cleared and below 200mb, homescreen widget cleared but still having lagging problem..anyone out there please give me more idea to troubleshoot....
I bought this phone a weeks ago, and I find everything to be fantastic especially the photo and screen clarity.I just love this phone.But the problem is the battery life. If we use the phone for messaging continuously, the battery goes down, it stands for 5 to 6 hrs if I play a game. Otherwise it stands for 9 or 10 hrs. I have to charge it everyday.
Ok the next thing is, I installed many apps and games in my handset. Now my the internal memory left is just 30MB. Is there anyway / apps available to install all the apps in SD Card. Please help...
chaitu, 15 May 2011am confused in wat to buy..samsung ace or htc wildfire.... pls someone help immediatly..When it comes to mid range smart phones. Ace is the best. good quality cam, excellent sound clarity, user friendly interface and all. only thing that worries is the battery.
Since most of the apps require gps and once its turned on the battery drains quickly. RAM is only 256 MB where as in LG optimus one its 512 MB. Ace's 800MHz processor is widely believed to be an overclocked version of its 600MHz processor. I think you will get all the features on ace in optimus one as well, with a reduced price. So better you buy LG optimus one.
am confused in wat to buy..samsung ace or htc wildfire.... pls someone help immediatly..
