Rating: 8 out of 10 (Excellent) Pros: Good Display, Good design,Good Camera with flash, Good performance (800Mhz), With Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset Cons: ArmV6 (Flash Not supported), No front camera (Novideo Call), The battery not 1500Mah, No light sensor, It's only 278MB RAM given for the user, No dedicated camera button Opinion: Design: I have the black one and Samsung has launched the white one lately. From the design, i can say it much a like with Iphone with chrome list around the body. The back cover is not a finger print magnet but unfortunately the front cover is. It's very easy to be gripped and not too heavy. Actually, it's very comfortable on the hands. It has no front camera and light sensor. So for those who wants to have a skype video call, just be disappointed with this device. And with the absence of the light sensor, i have to adjustthe screen brightness when i use it outdoor. On the back, It has 5 MP camera with LED Flash to help you take a better picture at indoor place or for places with few light. Theback cover (mine) is black and it has dots covered on the back cover which make it easy to gripped and of course, make it not a finger print magnet. Browsing and messaging experiences: With the default Browsing, it's really comfortable and very fast with minimalist design. The push mail with Google account (Gmail, contacts, and calendar) makes it perfect for Google's user like me. If you go to the market though, it has the YMail and Ymessenger. SO, if you are a Yahoo's users don't worry, the contacts and Ymail can be sync with your phone's contacts. Display: It's quite big with 3.5" display make as big as Iphone 3GS. Froyo 2.2 experience: - It supports installation on micro SD (yup it has Micro SD slot with 2GB in the package). Not all Application can be installed on micro SD but there are some tricks to make all apps can be installed on micro SD. Plz use google if you want to know. - Very Fast Browsing - Good Ram management though it's only 278Mb Ram's given for the user. But it feels rarely having lack on the performance. Except if you're playing a game that needs a very big Ram. - With the Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset. It has no problem when you're browsing or open the gallery Or playing with the kinetic scroll on the screen. It's very smooth. Gaming experience: I'm only playing angry bird and some SNES game, it's working very smooth. Notes: SOme already Tested PES 2010 and it works with little of lagging. GPS's experience: I'm using PAPAGO and it's working very fine. Overall: With the price that's over by samsung and the good performance, It really makes sense to have this Froyo's gadget when you're looking for a mid-end android gadget.
I bought dis phn frm mumbai @14.5k last week, since den i hav been extensively exploring each n every feature of dis phn.
Below are some pros n cons which i experienced against LG optimus one wch i was using earlier.
1. Excellent speed n responsive to touch without any lag till date...thanks to 800 Mhz processor
2. Display wid 320x480 is great... nice sunlight legibility
3. Great audio quality even wid bundled headphone n loudspeaker is also loud enough
4. Camera quality is also good...pics taken showed good color reproduction
5. Ligh weight,pocketable n comfortable to hold
1. Average battery life....lasts for 1.5 days if used extensively(Wifi, gaming, watching movies, etc)
2. No Divx/Xvid support (but doesn't matter as free apps like QQplayer n Rockplayer are there on market)
3. Less preloaded apps as compared to LG optimus one (no need to worry as all preloaded apps of optimus are available on market for free)
4. Gingerbread update is still a big question !
5. 256 MB RAM as compared to 512 Mb RAM in optimus.
The build quality is also great as compared to optimus one...looks like u are holding n iphone or mini version galaxy S
whereas optimus one is having rubbery finish which i didnt liked.
which one's better? galaxy ace, mototrola defy or xperia x10??? thanks...
Natasha, 23 Feb 2011Can someone please tell me if we can use Skype on this phone?yes
Hi All, I have been using Ace for a week and the major disadvantage was the battery life.
But yesterday I downloaded an application called "Juice Defender" and the battery life has increased considerably.I charged today morning and have been using FB, twitter and lots of messaging and i still have 90% left.
I'm new to android so any advantages/disadvantages of using this app is welcome.
i also heard while the battery is new, for 3-4 times we need to do full charge cycle of battery....let the battery go to lowest level, then charge it to full level....
I had done same to my phone battery, and now 3 years after also it is giving huge backup...
Does this phone support SWF files
Thanks in advance......

Anony Mouse, 23 Feb 2011To All complaining about the battery life of your mobile phones.. When you buy a new phone,fi... moreAre you living in 1990 still? Phones don't use NiCad anymore. The memory effect no longer exists in LiOn batteries. In fact, fully discharging your phone and recharging is very BAD for your battery and will damage it. So please no body listen to this mouse idiot. He knows nothing.
@cat and mouse
what can you say??
Does this phone have push mail?
Is it upgradable to version 2.3?
How much is the RAM?
