I'm from Mauritius island, phones are quite expensive in shops.
Please, I bought this device to root and put a Debian VM on to mess around with remotely, only to find it that I can't root the damn thing. If anyone knows how, or could even point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated!!

It should run any games but don't expect some big games will be run smoothly Anyway, talking about my opinion about this phone, had to say that I'm half-satisfied, half-disappointed Satisfied because one of affordable Lollipop androids available there is, and for the price it's good enough for a starter and the free space is not too small (4 GB is always better than 2) Disappointed mainly due to its screen, not because of the resolution but the screen itself, idk how do I say it but on some phones on a normal position it looks normal but when you tilt it it'll show that the colors are... broken? But this, even on the normal position it just doesn't look right, you gotta tilt it a bit to the front to get the perfect colors on vertical position otherwise it'll rape your pair of eyes, and for horizontal you have to tilt it a bit to the left, due to this I might consider to change it with Z520 or something else
Just got my hands on one, looks like it's going to be a reliable device at its price since there really isn't anything like it at the moment (unless I look for an Android One device under local vendor which has mixed to negative feedback regarding its build quality somehow), also there was a promo along with M220 that is cheaper but I chose this instead because my parents sold my G3 Beat just after it received Lollipop upgrade
Some thing to ask, is it going to be okay if it, like, hanged at first try? or so it seemed, I removed the battery and put it back to turn it back on, previously the screen remains black until I noticed that it was actually dimmed so bad I could almost see it from a rather hurting viewpoint (I can tell if the screen's not IPS cmiiw tho)
Jy, 21 Jun 2015Can't root, how to root pls help me.. All root apps doesn't work!!You can't root this device.
headphone is good, speaker is quiet you have to maxed it out but,the quality of the sound will decrease about20%
what is the quality of audio output to the headphones? I am a bit afraid because of Mediatek chipset.
Thanks for any reply.
The tiny strip speaker is the ear piece that's what I mean just like the z205 model.
If you don't like Acer z220, you can have the Microsoft Windows version m220 same specs but downgrade to the ram and downgrade to the internal storage, but it is upgradeable to Windows 10.
Mother of bezel it is cos Acer puts it's speaker and Mic on the bezel just like HTC, but their speaker is quiet the good thing is it has a fine sound detail.the screen viewing angle is not that great but it's very acceptable especially when compared to Samsung entry level smartphone, the brightness is struggling when dealing with a very bright morning sunlight.
This phone performance is depend on you, cos Acer install a bunch of unused.bloatware(or it depends on the carrier) 8gb of internal storage is pretty good 4gb free, battery just last four 14 hours average,9 hours heavy usage.it does gets warm when multitask, the bezel is more hand friendly than the sharp edged z205.
Z205 can have 4:3&16:9 aspect ratio on both 3&2 mp mode, z220 5mp is brighter than the z205 but darker in some condition compared to 5 mp unit on Xperia models. The z220 speaker is just a tiny strip between the screen it's a front facing one, it's good but it's very quiet and below average in speaker volume.
