Comment: I want to know whether can i connect this phone to my tv using hdmi cable?
Good: Fast phone, great for browsing, almost as good as more accomplished phones in most aspects.
Bad: Battery life is terrible - it usually doesn't last a full day for me (most other users are also saying the same thing unlike the official review). Also, my phone hangs fairly often (2-3 times a week) but that may be due to my large app collection.
Comment: Its the perfect phone if you are a light user, but definitely not recommended for heavy users due to the battery and hanging issues. Go for a top-end phone like the S2 if you are a heavy user!
Also, I can't control many apps which keep running in the background, eating away processing power and battery. Tried using task killers etc. but the problem appears endemic to the Android OS.
Good: Apps, fun, internet, I like the way you can see texts between friends as a conversation and I love the size and style. (Also large range of backrounds etc!)
Bad: Battery doesn't seem to last long.
Comment: Really love this phone! And would recommend it definatley!! :)
Good: Android Market, Weight
Bad: Internet browsing experience, Battery life
Comment: The samsung galaxy ace is a good cheap android smartphone.
Bad: The internet browsing experience is terrible. You cant read text beacuse of the bad quality screen so you have to zoom in to maximum zoom level.
The battery life is not on! I cant see how CNET can say that the battery life is good. Its not! I dont have bluetooth on and only have the brightness on half way and it lasts no longer than 15-25 minutes. 30 at the most.
Good: The android market has a wide varied choice of apps on it like angry birds etc... but i think the problem with it is when you find a paid app and you have to use your credit card. Why cant you just use your phone balance?
The weight of the ace is VERY light so its easy to carry and it wont weigh down in your pocket. Compare the weight with an iPhone 4! The iPhone 4 is like a brick!
Overall the Galaxy Ace is a good phone and i would recommend to most people but not people who are professinal and want the best.. etc etc.

Good: Easy to use / apps / design...etc...
Bad: turns its self off.....battery life....
Comment: I bought it a month ago and yes 2 times it had turnd its self off, wile it was on standby...
seen a one review about it.... nobody els has this prob...???
Good: ease of use
Bad: turns itself off
Comment: Had this phone for a week, so far has turned itself off twice when battery has been full. Virgin CS have now told me it is an issue with either the software or battery, not sure if this is correct but have decided to return it for the Galaxy S 2
Good: Responsive screen, fits nicely in the hand, pretty good at most tasks
Bad: A bit light weight, video camera poor
Comment: It's a pretty good introduction to Android at a very reasonable price. It's nippy, easy to use, and fits nicely in the hand. Also, a lot of the deficiencies can be (e.g. video camera performance and video playback compatibility) can be solved with a quick look in the Android market place.
