the on/off button issue is true but takes 5-10 seconds of sustained pressure to react....been using mine in my pocket for a week and never had it happen without consciously trying........it applies to my Samsung Galaxy S4 as well...so don't blame the ACER.
Its part of the way to force restart the device.
This is really earns a good reputation here. I love this to try. Oh not yet available here though.
Overall this is a good phone: fast, decent memory and not overloaded with constructor pre-installed apps. One major design defect is the on/off button. Even when the phone is locked, you can turn it off by pressing on the off button. This is bad because, when you carry the phone in your pocket, the on/off button can be accidentally pressed and you do not realise that your phone is off.
I just bought this phone in white edition last week, in my review, it's Totally an awesome device, i'm very satify with this device of speed, very smooth, and of course the price it's still very friendly. :) very recommended phone to buy.
midas84, 25 Apr 2013I agree with Debra. All phones have the same shape simply because they should! Anyone remember... moreOr the N-gage, where you had to hold it in the most awkward way when talking on the phone.
It's like saying: "omfg another car with 4 wheels and a drivers seat... companies need to stop copying each other and come up with an original shape"
Debra, 25 Apr 2013and wth do you want? a triangular shaped device? omg.... grow upI agree with Debra. All phones have the same shape simply because they should! Anyone remember the Nokia 7600 though... http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_7600-538.php
why is everybody being a copycap nowadays... look at samsung , lg , asus , nokia , blackberry , and other brand new releases they have same old shape common guys you can do better than that with the technology you have right now dont make the consumers buy old rubbish styled phones
hansip87, 24 Apr 2013SE LWW copycat! Spec is nice though :)Back looks rubbish. Could be a replacement for lww owners? Similar looks to lww and great specs with stereo speakers for low price - same principal as LWW ! Verdict Lww copycat!
The low res screen and sgx544 combo sounds like an onscreen gpu benchmark monster.
Seems a good phone with a good price plus acer has a good name. I hope it will make it on Aisa.
Graz, 24 Apr 2013This could be the one I've been waiting for! I just hope the battery life will be OK. If so, I... moreI don't think you have the S3 since you claimed you will sell a more powerful and premium phone to buy a mid-range phone
