    This is my FIRST ever Android phone, I've been reading online about the phone (Galaxy Ace) and i see everyones talking about updates etc

    I have downloaded Kies and it says i have the latest software which is 2.3.3 Gingerbread but alot of you seem to have 2.3.5 etc. I'm on Three(UK) so does anyone know when or how i can update software?

    I'm aware that battery life on Androids isn't very good, i send texts, use around 30 minutes of internet a day and make calls every now and then so will my battery life last from 7am till midnight? :thinking:

    Wifi is disabled i only turn it on when i use it.
    Don't really game on it either only angry birds for about 10 minutes.


    Any advice on Androids, apps and the Ace itself would be handy!
    Thanks in advance:D

    The safest way is updating thru Kies. If you can't wait official update, use Odin to install any FW you want, but you will void your warranty.
    And yes, you shouldn't have any low batt probs with that usage ;)

    I am using 2.3.3 and it works nicely, so i will not flash a newer ROM just do have the newest version. The most stable versions are through Kies. I charge my android every night since i watch Ferguson on it before i go to sleep but the batery lasts all day, even with casual working, gaming, and browsing. For great tips, check out the top posts in this ace forum, there are very useful things in there. As in apps, i recommend ZD Box, SafeGuard and Whatsapp for starters.

    Could you elaborate a bit about what you were using for connecting to FB & android market, If you were not using wifi then you must have been using GPRS or 3G?
