I bought the Galaxy ACE and not the SL, coz:
1) Ace is easier to hold -- 3.5"; 4" is too big
2) Ace is affordable -- Ace costs 1,350 dh, but SL costs 1,999 dh
3) The screen is gorilla glass -- very strong
4) the cpu is 800 mhz already, and comes with froyo android 2.2 and the latest Touchwiz UI
5) The best reason: ONLY THE GALAXY ACE HAS CAMERA FLASH. Flash is very important, and all galaxy phones including S and SL have no camera flash. Without flash, camera is useless at night. BTW, the ACE's 5mp camera is very good :-)

Ace User, 18 Mar 2011What is the price of samsung SL in india? i bought galaxy ace 5 days back, i was not shown SL ... morehey, don't go by the vendor/ retailer advice; No one knew about this model when I checked around Bangalore a few weeks back (Incl. so called Univercell, The MobileStore..etc). Why you did not came to this forum before buying the phone ??? Its always good to do a decent research before buying any such items..
BB, 18 Mar 2011Hi Noble... Did you pay any extra 1000 Rs for Tax. can you share your exp reg this. Coz i have... moreHi, I got the phone delivered to my home @ Bangalore for Rs.18,431/- Incl. of All Taxes and free delivery + FREE Samsung portable speakers. - from Letsbuy.com (with ICICI coupon); the product delivered in 3 Business days.
TAX: Those who are in Gujarat, Maharastra (any other?) states have to pay "octroi charges" (some additional tax that buyer has to pay to the local govt./ muncipality) for online purchase; its mentioned in few ebay listings. Better you can get shipped to any friends/ relatives to a nearby city; any way there is no such charges here in Bangalroe. - By the way the I9003 ROCK!!

orded the phone on letsbuy.com last sunday for Rs 18431..The ... moreUpdate: The folks at letsbuy.com resolved the issue of octroi with the courier company by today evening, but said that it will get redelivered by monday...however, upon repeated insistence, got it delivered at 9 PM today without me having to pay anything more than Rs 18431...so yesss, I have my phone with me now..:D...in hindsight, i guess I overreacted..esp since they were very well behaved as well:(
Comparing the display with my Wave1,the S-AMOLED blacks are much deeper than the S-LCD's and the colors are also more natural..however, the difference is noticeable only when the two dispays are put side by side...standalone, the S-LCD performs very well...
Also got the Brown-black version...which is better than the only black version's back panel...the back panel of Brown-black is non-glossy, dotted and complete black and only the rim is metallic brown...in my view, it is much better than the glossy black back panel...
will post further updates soon.....
I have brought Samsung I9003 Galaxy SL last Saturday. it is awesome phone @ this price.. but i had strange experience with this phone, it started heating up when WIFI or G3 connection is enabled. it heats up very fast during calls (less than 5mins) if WIFI or 3G is enabled.
Any one facing similar problem ...

orded the phone on letsbuy.com last sunday for Rs 18431..The courier person today came to deliver but asked for another Rs 1000 as octroi charges..began arguing when told that all taxes had to be paid by letsbuy.com..even the helpline of letsbuy.com first tried to say that you have to pay octroi bcoz it is govt charge n blah blah..but when I persisted, they spoke to the courier person and both argued for eternity....finally the courier guy went back with phone and letsbuy.com told me that they will check and try to resend...
I am stuck now...having paid the money and with no clarity on whether it will be delivered...repenting the decision to order online...its easily available in the nereby market now for Rs 18500-Rs19000...any suggestions?
