Summary: This is a very nice Android (Gingerbread) phone with capacitive screen from Samsung. It doesn't have all the useless preloaded apps that are tied to a carrier that consume battery power. Use this phone to take advantage of Google Maps (and the like) would be suffice. This phone will -not- work on AT&T 3G network, only GPRS/Edge. There's another model of this phone that will work on HSDPA 850/1900 MHz.
Great for the price, but the battery and memory are downsides

Summary: Well, its a good Android phone. It came with Android 2.3, what is fine. I will not talk about the system, only the phone. Galaxy Ace do not runs the most graphical intensive software like some of the 3d games, but its not a high-end phone anyways. The camera has a good quality, with flash. The video recording, despite the initial internet reviews, is NOT limited to 320 x 240, it really goes up to 640 x 480. The touch (multitouch) is flawless, no problems with that.
Summary: I bought two of this product, one for me and one for my wife. The phone is great... when it works! My phone turns off by itself a few times a day. Even when the battery is fully loaded. I have upgraded firmware and read every support forum out there. No luck. The second phone is even worse. First of all, the touchscreen had serious trouble for a few days. The phone was not usable. This issue got solved, apparently by the firmware upgrade.
Summary: I have had this phone for a week or so. Almost everything works fine out of the box. Android market is full of some good apps. Plus if you are adventurous you can build your apps with Android SDK. They have plenty of documentation and examples. Only issues so far. The battery seems to last (less as per my expectations) only for 1.5 days with little (1.5hour) wifi and 2 hour talk time (I use loudspeaker so this might be more if you don't) and 2.5 hours of games.
Summary: I purchased the ACE for myself 8 months ago and it is so easy to use. It does drink the battery if you are doing alot of internet and application access during the day. All in all this is a great phone with good features and able to run all the Android applications. I love the WiFi because it saves on my data plan. My wife like my phone so much, I purchased a second one this week.
Summary: After a deep research on the internet about new phones, i decided to change mi Great Nokia 5800 for an android based phone. Galaxy Ace was the best Cost-Benefit choice. Big challenge for me to change my Symbian system, because use to be really stable and well done. Comparing the experience with symbian and nokia phones as a reference, the change to Android is awesome. You can feel the difference due to the best hardware set up... 800Mhz processor and 277MB RAM memory.
Summary: Got this phone to replace an Old Nokia XM 5800. This is a great phone,Good call Quality,Internet is fast enough. It`s very attractive e solid in the hands. Android os is very good too, Lots of Apps. Little disappointed with music features, But get some good app(Double twist in my case)and you`re ready to go. I`m Happy with this phone. Buy it , If you want a very Good Phone With a Fair Price.
Excerpt: I have been an avid Nokia user for many years. This phone is my first android phone and I was simply blown away by it. The Samsung Galaxy Ace is the best value phone on the market. I love the screen of this phone.
Excerpt: If you're looking for a low budget phone i guess it could be it. But it's absolutely laughable internal space makes it not even worth calling a smartphone. Use it to make calls and a little bit of net browsing, forget about any other app.
Excerpt: A slow, low quality handset incapable of doing what most phones can do. It's features are average at best and half of them don't even work. A ridiculous 1.9GB memory that I filled within a month. Bad for gaming and social networking.
Pros: Good camera, okay for everyday usage.
Cons: Bad for internet, terribly slow, glitchy, laggy and a real pain to own.
