I got this phone in the sunmer. I bought one before and the charger literally died after a week. Now with a new one also bought in the summer, I suddenly got a message on my screen about my battery. It said something about being able to explode if it overheats, etc. The battery had to be replaced by someone from the Acer company. I couldn't get rid of it until I agreed I had read the message.
Anyone else get this pop up?
Hi my niece's acer just shot off after it said "update phone". Now it just stays off. No power at all. I charged the battery via external charger and still nothing. What can i do to switch it on?
I have had the Z222 for about 2 years now. The longer I use it, the screen becomes more and more difficult to sees ias the visibility of the screen is so low. Is this happening to others? Am I doing/using the cellphone wrongly>
This I am afraid does not convince me that I should go for acer again. In all other aspects it is a great little Phone.
Poor quality phone. GPS died after a year. Shortly after that it failed to recognize any SIM cards inserted in either slots. Wi-fi and Apps still work though.
i have this phone for over a year now and it really worked on my nerves:
-charging: i have some kind of a problem with my charging cable/phone, and i have to place the cable in a weird way to make it charge.
-headphones: doesn't always recognise the headphones i plug in, i have to restart the phone to solve it.
-restarting: sometimes when i restart the phone, apps disappear from the home screen, and i have to place them back from the list with all apps.
-camera: somtimes the camera doesn't work, and i have to restart the phone.
sometimes it doesn't even work when i restart the phone, so i have to wait a few days before it works again.
It is nice though that it's so cheap, but i wouldn't buy it if i were you.
Anonymous, 26 Oct 2016I want to update my phone. but how to update my phone?No updates for this phone have been released recently. Acer seems to have dropped support. You're probably running Android version 5.0 without any security patch level at all, and Acer probably won't release any updates to change that in the future.
You might look at some 3rd party custom ROMs, but they come with serious concerns about stability, privacy, and security. How do you know you can trust the (probably anonymous) person who produced the custom ROM in the first place?
If you stick with Acer's stock OS, then you can use the Google Play Store to keep your installed apps up to date, and Google Play Services regularly updates itself to check and ensure that none of your installed apps are malicious. That's probably about the best you can hope for with this phone.
I bought this phone on January 2017 in my country, Indonesia, for about 800000 rupiahs (pretty cheap price, about 60 usd according to today's currency).
Since then it has fallen to the water three times, dropped, or getting rained, but fortunately it's stil functioning until now. I'm quite impressed.
I bought this phone not expecting many features as this is really cheap, but feature-wise, it's quite decent. The camera isn't the best but I've seen worse so I think it's pretty good already, with touchfocus and LED flash. It's still Dual Core, but yeah, better than Single Core at least. The battery life is really bad, but since it's 1300 mAh I didn't expect much since the beginning. This phone can get hot at times and better to let it rest for a bit when that happens, or disable some apps that cause the problems, and all is good.
What I really love the most from my phone is the texture of the back. It's not slippery and it feels nice on my hands (that get sweaty often).
All in all, 3.5/5. But this if you want a cheap phone and don't expect much.
This phone is pretty much useless now. Every since the beginning, I had to toggle airplane mode in order to get cell signal working again after it lost signal (which is all the time where I live). Now, even after a factory reset it is so slow, and I have to power cycle it in order to type anything without frustration because it starts choosing the wrong keys. I bought this phone new 1 year ago. It is made to be a disposable device.
My Z220 has proven useless for my needs. It will receive texts but will not send them until sometimes hours after I've input them. I was advised the remedy was to do a factory reset, which I did, but that only worked for 2 of the next texts and it was right back to where it been. You get what you pay for I guess. I will not ever consider buying anything with ACER name on it in future.
why my phone have this symbol "!" at the line connection then cannot surf internet. please tell me how to solve this problem. thankyou.
why the chipset i check in cpu-z.it Qualcomm Snapdragon 400.but here say sd 200?
simply the worst phone I have used always heating up, worst battery life ever, and one sim slot doesn't work. After the system files among other things you are left with 5gb internal memory.
this phone is utter nonsense it's always laggy and the camera refuses to work at times help !!
My phone always gets slow and freezes up, and takes forever to install apps the brightness also sucks not to mention the battery life and how this phone is locked to Speakout and no other mobile Sim cards work. If there's a solution to speed up this thing that would be great! When it freezes up, every single app is closed and gaming apps are force stopped yet it still slows down 2 times a dayday, REALLY ANNOYING.
