NOT SO IMPRESSIVE...I AM USING THIS SET..
1)U CAN USE INTERNET FEATURES ONLY THROUGH CDMA SIM AND NOT THROUGH YOUR GSM SIM.
2)LIVE TV OPTION IS MISSING
BATTERY IS OF 1650MAH, BUT EVEN THEN IS DRAINING OUT FAST.
THE ONLY GOOD THING ABOUT THE SET IS ITS LOOK AND ITS ANDROID OPERATING SYSTEM IN CDMA/GSM DUAL SET.
I have bought this phone 15 days back and I am pleased with my choice till this point.
I had no other option prior to this as no other Android phone matched my requirement of CDMA/GSM (except Micromax and so on).
The reasons to buy this phone are:
1) CDMA/GSM compatibility. Both are active. If on call on one network, you still get call waiting on other number with an option to decline or connect to the new call (ending the first call). The second caller hears a ring go through though you are on call with the first caller on other network. So, you have the choice to talk on whichever network you want and the callers hear the current status of your network.
2) Android OS 2.3
4) Good enough camera to take pics when your actual camera (PnS / SLR) is not in your hand
6) Screen Size
7) More battery life with 1650mA which helps for dual sim
8) External memory expandable to 32GB
9) Dedicated SIM Switch Key
Please do not go for this phone if below are also your requirements and you can do without a CDMA/GSM Android phone:
1) Better camera
3) Front Camera
4) Internet on GSM network
5) More than 800 MHz processor
6) More internal memory (It has 160MB internal memory which runs out fast unless you root it after 1 year of warranty)
CDMA user always struggling for good phone and even after release of ACE I589. After paying 13,500/-, you will get
1. Internet with CDMA
2. 3 megapixel camera
3. No secondary camera
4. 1650 MAH battery is eye wash, even without surfing internet battery will not stand for 24 hrs. Just think for browsing back up ????????
5. 256 RAM, very slow response
6. very less only 160 MB internal memory
7. Once switched off, you have to reset the wallpaper and all.
8. Once SIM inserted, very difficult to pull out.
9. pre installed apps can't remove.
10. If you have old sim card, then go for OMH SIM.
I am giving two star out of 5 star, since this is best featured phone in India for CDMA user. All mobile manufacturer are taking full advantage of none avaibility of good CDMA phone in Indian Market.
So, think thrice before buying this scrap worth Rs. 13,500/- only
Guys its one the best..... after tested and voted best smartphone from many people. Here's it new avatar.. GALAZY ACE DUOS
ANROID IN DUAL! That means lots n lots of app.
Better Battery! a new 1650mAh replacing 1300mAh
However downgraded camera! But let me tell you, megapixel is only for print out size, camera clarity is by lens quality. Its AWESOME quality won my heart.
SAME DISPLAY SIZE! however no scratch resistant glass:( BUT DISPLAY HAS SAME SCREEN RESOLUTION :)
But its really VFM !! getting a dual network phone buy just paying 500 extra over the single SIM one.
HATS OFF... thanks samsung
According to me this is very good phone,but it can be better like one side they have given 1650mah battery but on the other side they have reduced camera from 5 mp to 3 mp.On the other hand they haven't increased the processor and screen size also like the processor can be of 1gh or 832gh.The good thing is that,that the company is giving dual active sim but the decline point is that we can use one GSM and other is CDMA.
This is overall things which I got as decline points in this phone
