    Help Should I upgrade my new Ace 2 from Android 2.3 ?

    I'm about to get a new Galaxy Ace 2 running Android 2.3. Does 2.3 still work fine? Should I stick with that or immediately update it to eg 4.4? Is it straightforward to upgrade an Ace 2 to 4.4? Or, if I do, does 4.4 cause more bug problems than it's worth? Any advice much appreciated.
