Bought yesterday for my wife,its a good phone but not the best,
If u pay more money u get more good things,its natural.i have a SE x10i too.thats my favourite,planning for XPERIA ARC OR XPERIA NEO.
I hope my review of Samsung galaxy ace will be helpful for many people. I bough this phone from ebay india and got the delivery very fast in Pune from Udaipur vendor. (He took only 2 days to ship the mobile and 1 day was taken by the Blue Dart courier).
I went through lot web sites before finalizing this phone. It's a new budget phone from Samsung. I took this phone after comparing it with Motorola DEFY, LG Optimus One (waited for LG Chic for almost 3+ months) and compared it with HTC wildfire. Please remember this is not a high end phone and do not expect a premium features/hardware from this phones. I had a decent budget cap of indian Rs 15-16K (max $350 USD) and inside that budget cap I was looking for maximum features/facilities.
Phone came with headphones, battery, additional white color plastic back, a charger and USB cable to connect it to computer, 2 GB MicroSD card and manual CD's. I was wondering if i need to take a backup of my contacts but after inserting my sim android software very well integrated everything. I installed facebook, twitter apps and android identified correct people there numbers, facebook details and twitter details under one name!
On most of the sites there is incorrect information available about memory. This phone has 278 MB of RAM and 181 MB of storage. Phones graphic quality is very neat, clean and crysp. The touch response is very smooth and fast also you don't need to hard press to generate the required touch. Phone auto rotates the screen if you hold it horizontally. Phone really surprised me at first when the entire battery drained out in just 6 hrs. However I searched it on google on how to improve the battery life of android phones and I found good links to do the same. I turned off the other GSM network search and only limit it to 2G as I have idea sim card. I also installed a widget to enable/disable wifi, gprs, sync features in one tap. Reduced the brightness of the screen and in last 6 hrs I have only lost one battery bar! So i can assume it worked well.
I installed following apps:
Opera browser, Adobe acrobat reader, barcode scanner, compass, google sky map, twitter, facebook, ASTRO file manager, converter, Air control light, skype, talking tom, Shazam all the mentioned apps are free. I also noticed that I can edit doc,xls, ppt files in ThinkFree office suite that came pre installed with the phone. Phone supports multi touch, phone supports youtube but not the flash that is embedded into websites. Headphone are optimized for better voice quality during call so they dont give great quality sound when you are listining songs, however when I plugged in my creative earphones sound quality was amazing.
Samsung also has provided a software that converted various video formats into mp4 that can be easily played on mobile.
Over all I'm very happy with this phone, considering the budget cap I had.
Natasha, 23 Feb 2011Please tell me if it is possible to sownload Skype on this phoneyes, I've loaded skype and it works perfectly. Still waiting for video support though.
AnonD-1790, 26 Feb 2011Thanks for answering...that means u r suggesting to buy lg o1??Don't go for optimus one its touch response is not as good as samsung touch phones
from the thread it seems that most of the features are working good .. can any user comment upon the battery life with and without using 3G features
from the thread it is clear that all the features are goos it would be of grear use if some users can comment on the battery backup ..i.e how much time with using most of the features likw wifi, net, ect .. and just as in normal usuage
really a cool mobile.. got it for rs 14800 in pondicherry... froyo works great so far no lags at all.. ram is 300 mb.. internal memory is 158 mb... touch sensitivity is really responsive and cool... nice to feel the phone in ur hands... professionall looks.. music quality is optimum.. not too low or too high.. just perfect... wifi n is really cool..
android phones under 15000... galaxy ace is the best.... camera is not bad.. of course video rec is not up to the mark.. if u have a higher budget say within 20k go samsung galaxy s lcd i9003.. rs 19600
can anyone tell that which class
edge is here?is that lower than
class 32 or 12 or 10?0r what is its downloading speed? Pls answer.

I bought 1 week ago. My first Android phone. In Bali (Indonesia) the Price is Rp.2.965.000 (about USD 329). Comes with 2Gb miniSD card (I swapped it with 8Gb 'cause it not enough for me),Standard Handsfree out of Cheap Carton box. Black back cover only(with stripe so it not slippery). I think the handset is too big for my Asian hand so I almost use it with two hands. The display is clear, but hard to see under the sunlight,the batrey drain fast enough (approx.6 hrs using wi-fi). PDF reader better than nokia 5800XM. GPS is slow (Nokia 5800XM is better). Camera is good but you can't zooming when you set to 5Mp. No front camera. Something that very annoying is when we push the volume rocker up/down with 1 hand my other finger always push the power button too, because it's position. Music sound with loudspeaker is good but no Bass, don't worry it's not has a bad treble sound like Chinese phone. Wi-fi reception is good, provider reception is average. UI is good. Internal memory is too small because when we install an apps from Android market even if you put it in SD card it's still eat your internal memory. RAM is good enough for Froyo and multitask. No shop sell screen guard and leather case yet. Generally: this is a good phone,I like it very much.Worth to buy...
Amazing phone, and AMAZING battery life! I get more than 3 days with one charge!
