The battery is not too bad, lasts me a day (one should not expect too much battery life from a smartphone. If you want battery life, buy a the likes of Micromaxes, etc.)
Phone is pretty good performance wise, a nice 800MHz process is pretty good with the 200 MHz GPU. RAM might be lesser, compared to phones like i9003, etc. but then they cost 5K more.
I think for the price you pay you get a pretty good phone.
Check out the Samsung Galaxy page on facebook, quite a long list of users who have bought this phone.

AnonD-5404, 04 Apr 2011There is a trick with samsung batteries did you know that? but you have to do it the first tim... moreThat is for every new battery. Thumb rule for a new battery is drain it completely till the phone switches off and then start charging it. Repeat this process for the first couple of charging cyles and the battery should have a longer life.
Payal, 05 Apr 2011@ Battery Back up issue: Please discharge the battery completely.
Keep it on charging for 1... morewill it realy works????????
is there any harm to battery for charging it to 10 hrs long time>>/?????
@ Battery Back up issue: Please discharge the battery completely.
Keep it on charging for 10 Hrs in switch off mode. and then try using it.
Also: please use the same charger which u got with the handset; as charges with same socket varies in power transmitting capacity.
I am using Galaxy ace for last 2 months, earlier i was using Galaxy Spica(lite) major difference is in battery backup.
Even Galaxy spica has larger(in size) battery and give 1.5 days backup for normal usage.
But Ace is only 10hrs in normal usage.
Playing music, surfing over wifi & playing games will drain ur 100% charged battery into 0 in just 2.5-3 hours(keeping brightness 50% level)
Apart battery, phone is really gud in camera, processor and yes it plays movies with subtitles too(in avi format) using Rockplayer from android market...
simar, 05 Apr 2011I am using this phone since last month....should i do this trick now?I done it my self too and it will give you extra juice for couple of hours, no harm done to battery at all.
SIMAR, 04 Apr 2011if any body using galaxy ace...then please tell me about battery back up.... i am having this... moreya I'm also facing the same thing, but your Froyo requires better hardware and it eats the battery.
SUVA, 04 Apr 2011is there any antivirus installed in this phoneno antivirus is preinstalled but you can download free from the android market for free.
Hi , I just got my Ace and trying to run the cd for installing KIES, but its asking to install updates? Should i go ahead and install the updates?? ADVISE plzz
hurm... what do you mean about battery back up?
about the antivirus, u need to download it from the market software installed within the phone.. but u need to sign up 4 free by using google account if i'm not mistaken. so, from market appilcation, u can download the antivirus (AVG) 4 ur phone and other softwares... (^__^)
I upgrated my mob and now have Samsung Galaxy Ace. Batterys life is rubbish. It seems you need to keep your mob pluged on charge for all time. Very regret having this phone!!!!!!
There is a trick with samsung batteries did you know that? but you have to do it the first time you buy the phone, i only knew it after, and i'm not sure if it really works, they say it does.
you have to make sure the battery is really drained after the factory charge, and then charge the phone with the cellphone TURNED OFF!!! (didn't do this because i was so excited to use my phone) Then when it is fully charged, remove the battery and wait a few seconds, put it back in, then charge the phone again until it becomes really really fully charged. They say it does the trick. i don't know. there's no harm in trying.
AnonD-1314, 02 Apr 2011Thanks. I asked about angry birds performance on the mobile (lags, slows down, freezes, etc... moreYes i am using Ace and while playing angry birds it slows down.Even after uninstalling and again installing the same the same problem is there..
