    Here, I found out that there is a different processor in the GT-S5830i. This changes a few things. I wrote down the ones that differ:

    Talktime (2G) up to 19 h. (The old ACE 10,6 h. )
    Talktime (3G) up to 7 h.( The old ACE 6,5 h. )
    Stand-by (2G) up to 964 h.( The old ACE 640 h. )
    Stand-by (3G) up to 675 h.( The old ACE 540 h. )
    112 g ( The old ACE, 113g )

    AFAIK, talk and standby time should be the same, dimensions and weight should be the same also. BT and CPU speed are the only things that differs. Some, though, reported that on 5830i with Ginger, video is still recorded @320x240 and not @640x480 (like on 5830 with Ginger).

    PS: those talk and standby times could be based on diff Android versions (5830 with Froyo vs. 5830i with Ginger).

    Wrong, S5830 has a proximity sensor, each and every touch phone has a proximity sensor, without it, whenever you put your phone on your ears your face will touch the screen and press some button, might even end the call.

    The basic difference between these two phone is that the S5830i has a different chipset, its the same as galaxy Y.
    The S5830i does not have a dedicated GPU, so it might have some problems running high graphics games and apps. Its CPU has been given excessive speed and additional task to calculate for graphics, thats why its much more difficult to port or make an ICS rom for this model. The extra CPU speed does not helps in the phone's performance, instead it compensates for lack of a dedicated GPU.

    In a developer's view(not me :p), the only similarity between S5830 and S5830i except for looks is that they have the same name.
    The chipset difference causes none of the available S5830 roms and mods to work on S5830i. Its more like galaxy Y than Ace.

    Hi I am looking for cases to protect my phone and I'm not sure if I can use the same case for my s5830i to the s5830. I have looked on ebay but have seen cases for the s5830 but not as many for my model.
