All s500 users in Romania check updates!!I have received now jelly been for s500 Orange Ro!!! :)
Boy, 01 Mar 2013Omg i just got Andtoid 4.1.2!! Around 250mb update!u said u got the official OTA update on your acer s500?..from what country are u?
very good phone.
poor batery life. less than 12 h with wifi and frequent use of aplications.
advice: the display eats 50% of the battery life. set the light to min. and life gets longer.(not a good idea in daylight thow).
very good video, excelent even in poor light.
not so good pictures in electric light.
very good screen and resolution.
lots of aplications for free.
not the quickest or intuitive when used for calls.
excelent for messaging. you can say the messege and it will write it for you.
more smart than phone, at a great price, RECCOMENDED.
how can I get a better battery?

Overall is a great phone at a reasonable price for thos who dont want to spend too much but still use and enjoy a smartphone with decent configuration. Had it for 2 months and worked great. Battery life a little short. I am not using it for games, music so couldnt really review these functionality. Have a problem though in the last 4 days, all of a sudden the auto-rotate is no longer working - any ideas, have you had this issue?
First of all phone is A LOT faster it works just great now!
New wallpapers, new live wallpapers, new notifications bar, currents, new colour for touch buttons...
a bigger battery available now but costs big.
i think jelly bean update with such a battery massive one above what i posted....this phone gonna be a (u name it) : )
I have a custom Rooted Jelly Bean 4.1.2 ROM and I have removed the buttons from the screen. The phone can show it's teeth now. Battery lasts for 2 days with normal use (15-20 calls, 30-40 min WiFi per day). If you wanna play all day go buy the M-P 3200mAh battery but its gonna get fat.
Great specs but the overall experience is terrible,the battery doesn't lasts not even a entire day,the home/back/menu buttons are contained in the screen and take up unnecessary space and interfere with games, no firmware support for this phone and easy to break,can't find any decent spare parts or accessories for it.
Acer clearly doesn't know how to make a reliable phone.
For better batery life disable "weather" wich is open in the background. You will be surprised by the effect.
