Getting A495 error and not able to update any of the apps on my Desire S. Tried clearing the cache (App Manager, Play) and cleared the data as well in Play. Didn't work... Any thoughts?

I would suggest you go for Micromax A110, its a real beast and VFM, SGS2 has some issues but they can be controlled by rooting the system.

What is your budget?
I have a budget upto INR23K. Optimus L9 is also expected this week in Kerala

Those were some quick fire actions! Ordering and the cancelling! But anyways, no point in going for something you aren't totally convinced about.

Nexus i9250 is still available for 21k, bargain with reseller if you want it cheaper. PM me for details. Reseller will give 1 month warranty.

Guys with 20k+ budgets, no point settling for anything less than a 1280x768 screen. The GNex remains an awesome choice as always btw

That is lot lower than Defy, the most loved phone here.

Atrix 2 = 1.01 W/kg (head) 1.15 W/kg (body)
Defy = 1.52 W/kg (head) 1.53 W/kg (body)

You can try "Hide it pro". I have been using it for quiet some time and the best part is it sits as "Audio manager" in your app screen :-)

Guys, I upgraded my Galaxy Ace from Froyo to Gingerbread and also have rooted it. My phone is terribly slow now. Is it something to do with rooting or to do with Gingerbread? Any solutions for this?

Could be rom dependant. Did you upgrade to a custom rom? Even if it was a factory update, bloatware may be responsible, or an all singing/dancing rom.

Try and run a lean one from xda.

Flash the myth ace rom. The Myth2.

This is the most stable/smoothest ICS based custom rom for the Galaxy Ace S5830.

I had flashed it in two aces and going stable.
