Ted, 14 Feb 2011not bad.... only drawback is the snapdragon processor and the Acer brand!
btw, can any Acer... more"btw, can any Acer phone users give some comments on Acer? cuz Acer's laptops are said to be low quality and always faulty. just wanna know is it the same with Acer's phone? dont misunderstood me, i have nothing against Acer, just the general feeling i got from others here..."
Acer is not that bad. The first laptop I bought was an Acer. It was the best deal for the money back then, and even though it seemed cheaply built and the lid assembly started to crack around the hinges after a couple of years, it was built like a tank actually. I got it in 2005 and it's still alive and kicking. I installed a lightweight Linux distro on it and my dad uses it right now without any problems. So, they might not be the greatest devices in the world, but most of the time they're a fantastic deal for the money and they're more robust than they seem.
Also, when it comes to smartphones, the current Acer mobile phone division is the former Eten, which has been bought by Acer some time ago. Eten were head to head with HTC building the first touchscreen smartphones, years before anyone even heard of the iPhone.
Acer, please make screen mobile phone size even more bigger coz i am King Kong size super human. For me 4.8 inch screen too tiny and best for my pocket 6.6 inch screen... .
IanStorm45, 29 Jan 2011Well I watch an official preview from Acer of the upcoming phone and they say itís a 5inch AMO... moreYe I totally agree, BUT that is how tech companies make their money. Look at Sony Ericsson for example, They have the potential to make the baddest phones on the market but chose to make the Arc with no front facing camera and the same amount of RAM as the X10 and little to improve the storage.
If a company was to make a truly advanced, ahead of the curve technology, They would go bankrupt because it would be too expensive to make and there too much competition out there.
(Sorry to use another Sony example, but Sony had one of the best MP3 player tech in the industry but then apple came along, fooling all those people to think that their iphone and ipod had true quality sound. How does a company compete with that? Sony ended up making less quality MP3 players because people no longer cared about it. And where do you see the Walkman brand today? Sony basically killed it off and integrated it into their cellphones.
The Acer phone is on my top 3 for sure. A nice widescreen phone that has 2.2!(I'm a X10 user). USB 3.0 barely used for tech at the moment, a few more years for that to become standard. I would hope that with releasing this phone in April, that Acer will get enough sense to have a processor bigger than 1GHz. And RAM to match that of the LG, Samsung and Motorola phones. Hopefully a bigger battery too, does anyone know the battery size??????????
The Acer Iconia 5 would be a huge improvement over my SE Xperia X10. I am not so pleased that im stuck with 2.1. I will have to root it in the future I guess. Gotta love Android! :D
Phoneguy, 27 Jan 2011Why TFT display?? With a AMOLED och at least an S-LCD would be a big improvment. A 4,8&quo... moreWell I watch an official preview from Acer of the upcoming phone and they say itís a 5inch AMOLED display. As for the battery lifeí with the power efficiency Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and the AMOLED display it should do well. My feeling is with the new upcoming USB3, Bluetooth 4.0 standard and multi cure processor why they donít just hold the phone back and get it right the first time around, why should we buy this phone and months later its useless ;-(
i hope it is performs as well as it looks. i am happy from my Acer Aspire 5740 laptop, i am hoping to get this Acer phone too.
Asim, 11 Jan 2011If you are questioning the brand, then you dont know much..like
jsk, 09 Jan 2011hey... memory size ? great spec. except the brand .... If you are questioning the brand, then you dont know much..
Zero, 09 Jan 2011Hopefully the processor will be 1.25 GHZ because in April most phones will be with dual processors you never know... It might have a 1.2Ghz processor.. April is still 3 months away.. If it does then it will the best phone in the market.. m eagerly waiting to get my hands on it
I have had an acer Liquid E for 6 months and LOVE it
NO complaints, I would buy and Acer again
Why TFT display??
With a AMOLED och at least an S-LCD would be a big improvment.
A 4,8" TFT will eat your battery
Hopefully the processor will be 1.25 GHZ because in April most phones will be with dual processors
