For those of you still using this phone I highly recommend you root your device and buy the largest microSD card you can afford.
I had one a couple of years ago, and rooting it meant that I could use app2SD to keep most of my larger apps off of my handset. It made a huge difference to mine when I wasn't in a position financially to get a better handset.
I have had far worse cheap small smartphones from several large manufacturers. After installing CM11 and getting some advice from XDA forums it did at least turn into an ok-if-fairly-mediocre phone. The person who I gave it to still has it to this day, and it still does basic tasks like social media, maps, music etc a lot better than sweet fa.
after installing whatsapp phone memory is full so, incoming sms we are not receiving. We are not able to remove software from phone memory which we are not using. What should we do ?
We're still using this phone until now. The only problem is that the wifi is malfunctioning and it can only detect but can't connect. Factory reset won't even help. Not a big deal though since the internal memory can barely fit in facebook and messenger so we just use it for texting and calling.
satisfying and long lasting phone...using it since past 4 years.. it was and is a good friend of mine... i have droped it many times but still she didn't show any defect ..
i do agree about that low int memory issue...
I had using it for 2 years. It battery life time is less. when using any app it suddely switch off.
I have been using this phone from past 3 years - it worked well, just the issue I had faced was low internal memory. I cant download applications and the most irritating part was that my whatsapp suddenly stopped working many times due to low internal storage. Thus I quit on this phone. Apart from this it worked well for me :)
I have been using this phone for the last 3 & half years. Its a very good phone except internal storage. When u install more apps it gives "low internal storage error". Otherwise the phone is very good. Camera quality is also ok- ok but not that very great. Its an above average phone. In 3 n half years i have not taken this to any service stations. In between there was an issue like the images from gallery were automatically getting deleted and some SD card related issues. But it got resolved also automatically.
I had been using this phone for last 4 years. Considering current size of applications like Google Play Store, WhatsApp, this phone started facing 'Low Internal Memory' issue and you could not do anything about it except purchasing a new phone.
hey guys. i have the same phone as you and i optimized it to have a 10 gb of memory, and also 2 gb of ram. first of all, root your phone, search on google "how to root galaxy ace-i" follow the instructions, afterwards download link 2 sd on app store, go there and start moving your apps to your sd card. then go and download roehsoft ram expander on google play, its with 15 dollars i guess, but you can search on google how to expand your ram. if you want your phone to llook like new phones download Touchwiz launcher on google play. and now you will find your phone looking like new phones, and is fast right now. and whenever you download an app go and link it to your sd card, also if you find yourself stuck on boot logo plz search "how to flash odin on galaxy s5830 i" hope i helped :)
