    Dose Samsung Galaxy Ace is still produce? Just checked and has a great price. But it runs on Android 2.2 which pretty much sucks in my opinion, its been a long time since 2.2 was out.
    In fact I own a 3 year old smartphone Samsung Galaxy Europe that had 2.2 and actually still runs pretty good. But I think if you want any decent features for your smartphones you need to pay somewhat more then 200 bucks.
