Windows 10 Mobile for the business crowd
Decent screen, good performance
Nice screen, brisk OS and a lightweight tablet
A fairly average contender within the 7″ tablet category this. There were a few too many creaks from the chassis and it twisted all too easily – making the screen produce some strange colours. My main gripes are the sheer amount of apps pre-installed. Sure, I can understand one or two apps, but the entire Amazon suite? This isn’t a Kindle, why is it all here? And why do I need all the other additions too?
It delivered all the apps and widgets fairly trouble-free without any real hint of a struggle, despite only having 1GB of RAM. The on-screen keyboard was respo... Full review
Step away from this phone
I understand the the phone costs the same as a weekly grocery shop for a family of four but I would not recommend it for anyone. There are more than a billion people in the world who have a Facebook account and everyone takes pictures on their phone. Th Liquid M220 might allow you to browse your timeline but it will struggle when it comes to uploading your (hazy) photos there. You are better off taking yourself to CEX and buying a second-hand Motorola Moto G or even an iPhone 4 for £95. And if it is a Windows phone you truly want, a Microsoft 535 with 8GB internal storage will set you... Full review
An affordable, entry-level smartphone
As long as you never lose sight of what the Acer Liquid M220 is supposed to be – an affordable, entry-level smartphone – you’ll likely be satisfied with it. For what it is, Acer’s first US smartphone offering impresses. It has great battery life and offers all of the same functionality of other Windows Phone 8.1 devices (whether or not this appeals to you is another issue all together), just for a much lower price point.
Sure, the lowered cost means modest specs and a hit to its display quality, but what the Liquid M220 lacks in flair it makes up for... Full review
A great budget tablet
Inexpensive, easy to handle and comes with Android 5
Experience shows that expectations have to be reduced slightly in relatively inexpensive tablets. Acer's Iconia One 8 is no exception and has only a 720p screen, a not entirely stable plastic casing with some sharp edges, and slightly too quiet speakers. The variety of adware also mars the impression the same as the clear performance loss after a prolonged load for which we deducted a point in the rating.
Acer particularly emphasizes the touchscreen, which is in fact quite suitable for sketching because it implements inputs very accurately. The low black level and a rather color... Full review
Isn’t a bad alternative
Reliable and consistent
Offers strong processing for a great price
If you're in the market for a budget tablet you can share with children, I'm sorry to say it, but Acer has missed the mark with the Iconia One 7. Yes, the processor is speedy, but almost everything else I can think to say about the tablet is no better than average.
While Acer has a reputation for providing cheap and cheerful electronics, they usually feel like they'll last significantly longer than the One 7 seems likely to. I can only really recommend it for those looking something cheap to tide them over until they can afford a better tablet, or for those on a very strict... Full review
Fun & simple
Picked up this phone @ Staples, unlocked, on sale for $100. Loved it from the get go. One of the major reasons? Call me crazy but I like the older version of Android it runs. Android, like iOS, has become increasingly tricked out, to little or no advantage. As well as glaring, headache inducing white, & unimaginatively flat, & uninteresting. Acer has added a couple of useful apps and a pinch of this and that in the settings, but overall the phone runs a pretty pure, tasty little Jelly Bean. Design wise the phone is actually quite a pleasure to hold. It somehow suits the older OS, as well, as if the designers understood & wanted to give it an aspect of inner & outer confluence. Yea. The phone flunks out occasionally when you put too much stuff at once onto its slender half gig shoulders. But hey. Go easy! And no, it doesn't have the greatest camera, but I've used worse. It does the trick. The phone has LTE, manages to run a good long time on a charge, and has good sound quality both in calls & for media. I prefer an underdog like this to the usual almighty prom kings that everyone admires. Glad I bought it.Less
Nice phone with some shortfalls
Nice body, I like the size (not for long time web readers ) . Very fast GPS . It has lollipop Android (works fine but some times may slowdown ) . Camera below average, if you like to take a lot of pics with your phone - it may not fit your expectation. Display is just OK . Everything else is pretty standard. I got mine for 40$ (on sale) , for what I paid I am pretty happy.Less
Do not buy
I really loved this phone when I purchased it but after just 7 months of having this phone it won't connect to any Wi-Fi network at all even when I know the password is 100% right.Less
Battery dead? for only 3 months
not sure if battery is dead, even when plug in, battery still show not charging, and tablet keeps on power off on its own. bought at costco at the end of december 2014, not even 3 months, cannot use the tablet nowLess
Don't waste your hard earned cash. Poor antenna, poor DAC. Poor volume level. No alt menu button for apps.Less
It's super cool and money's worth
I've tried this smartphone and love its design. The phone also feels nice to hold with its smooth curves, thin design and 5-inches screen. The touch screen is very fluid and fast. It has 13MP camera which gives excellent snaps. The Magic Bright Mode in its camera can create a good photo and blur effect in low light. The camera also produces a good video at the noon and night. The videos run very smooth and without lag. I usually watch it on YouTube with Wi-Fi connection. From the overall appearance and specifications are carried, the presence of Liquid Jade obviously intended for those who want to look cool at the same time without having to spend a sophisticated deep. Fashionable design and performance is quite good.Less
It does the job nice and smooth.
I gave it 10/10 because it does everything mentioned on the specs. This is not a high end phone with HD videos and amazing camera. However you can use a multitude of features even if the Android system is JellyBean... The Internet works very well, multimedia and social media apps are running smooth and offer a nice experience, we can talk on Skype with no problems whatsoever, we can use FTP to administer and adjust things on our serve while on the go.... it's easy, fast, ergonomic and low cost. For under $200 you can't expect much but the stylish design, the functionality and the options you have on this phone makes it perfect for day to day use. Pair this with a no contract, no expiration prepaid SIM and you have a quick great device to stay in touch with people, navigate the Internet, watch movies online, use social media and more.Less
It goes down continuosly.Less
Dont now if I like it or not
I have had the phone now for 6 days and my battery wont charge, Although the light flashes and shows that its charging i have been charging it for almost 2 days and when i check to see what % its at still remains at 20%, I hope its my charger and not the phone but i dont think it is. Also its very slow at down loading and my home screen freezes alot making it hard to make that urgent phone call. Does any one else have these problems or did I just get the dud of the bunch?Less
