Well. I bought this phone about one year ago to replace my Xperia M, but... This phone is a mixed bag.
First pros: Dual SIM, LTE, nice screen (I dont think about resolution), notification diode, LTE support, good GPS accuracy (with fast fix), works good with Android Auto and good audio quality
now cons: very small amount of user available memory (about 1,3GB), poor cameras (both main and front), slow internal memory, lots of crapware.
So... This phone runs quite smooth, but only if You DONT use background working apps. I don't use any messengers etc. The strange thing is that when You move app to SD Card, the icons of them are dissappearing from desktop. The system does not allow to install anything to SD Card, and also apps cannot access SD Card (i.e. Here Navigation) to write data there. So if You want to install offline maps the memory runs out very fast. Next the dialer. It is showing the favourite contacts by default instead of keypad. This is quite annoing. The camera is poor, even the old S3 Mini takes better photos, but remember, these photos are still better than most cheap "unknown" smartphones. Now the best. Notification diode is good, dual SIM is good (it allows to run LTE and 3G) and audio is good (when using headphones). I will not say anything about battery. When my son was using this phone it lasted up to 3-4 days (no cellular data used, only some WiFi), I am using this one for Navigation.
Anyway, I advise that phone only for less requiring persons.
I bought this phone months ago. I'm not satisfied with the device. It's slow, the quality of camera sucks (especially front one), sometimes while using it, freezes then the screen becomes black and it goes to lock screen, often, when i need to call somebody, my phone freezes and it takes a lot of time until it starts working normal again,...
I would not recommend buying this device. -.-
Worst. Phone. Ever.
At least, the worst phone I ever dealt with. Fortunately it's only a 'backup' device I got through work, so I rarely need to use it for anything serious.
But it's slow, laggy and the touchscreen sensitivity is a joke. Battery life is mediocre at best. On the software side, it's overloaded with bloatware; system updates are rare but it takes about 10 attempts to install one anyway.
I realize it's a low end device, in contrast to my regular phone, but this thing really isn't doing any good for Acer's reputation.
Bad performance... Only the speaker is good performance on this phone...
the only thing it does a decent job is its audio quality... the rest is just rubbish... rear cam sucks... laggy as hell... battery life is grrrrrr!!! this will be my first and last acer.. never consider them again
How about the video quality of the front facing cam? Is it bright enough to have a video call?

I have a problem with this phone, sometimes while using it, the phone blinks, freezes then the screen becomes black and it goes to lock screen. Any suggestion on how can I fix this?
This phone can only open links from TXT and E-mail in the Android Browser.
Then you have to cut the link from that, open the browser that IS synced with your laptop/desktop and then paste the link in that.
As I bought it, I had the impression I had gotten a cheap wellworking phone. A bit short on memory, but after adding a 64MB micro SD card and moving as much as possible to the card, that has not been any issue.
Although, it is really annoying to have the phone telling me it is out of storage space and it has a lot of unremovable acer apps installed...
The wifi is not working well. It will randomly fall off wifi networks and refuse to reconnect without a reboot.
The screen suddenly started to mess up. Bad connection somewhere. Alarms and calls are coming, but no display and no response to the screen. As far as I know, the phone has not had any physical abuse - unless having the phone in the pocket and using it in slight rain counts as abuse - if that is the case I bought the wrong phone.
Will not consider Acer again, seems to be bad buildquality (at least for my use) and a truckload of unremovable unusable crapware.
