Acer CloudMobile S500 Review: In Depth

26 November 2012
  • Conclusion: One of Acer’s most powerful mobile offerings to date also turns out to be one of the best examples of value for money we can think of right now. With the latest version of Android, hardware comparable to many of 2012’s flagships and a price tag of just £169.99 from Expansys , the Acer CloudMobile S500 may have been late to the party, but it’s perfect for anyone now after a truly affordable, capable Android smartphone.
  • Pros: Powerful hardware, Great screen, Incredible value for money
  • Cons: Cheap, plastic construction, Poor audio recording and playback, Weak UI design

Acer CloudMobile Review

Phone Arena
4 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Although Acer is a name that rarely gets mentioned when Android smartphones are concerned, the CloudMobile is a handset that deserves attention. Without a doubt, it is among the better-looking devices we've reviewed lately. Performance-wise, we have nothing to complain about at all as the dual-core chip handles any task without breaking a sweat.
  • Pros: Great design, High resolution display, Good performance
  • Cons: The camera's autofocus is fiddly, Music player needs lots of work, Streaming music or video with AcerCloud can be tricky

Acer CloudMobile S500 review

Pocket Lint
20 November 2012
  • Conclusion: The S500 is a great device. It's sensibly priced and features the sort of cut-down Android experience that Android lovers will really like. As a result, there's a lack of enhancements over Google's core OS, but that core is a lot more feature-complete than back in the days of 1.6 or 2.0. Battery life is, we think, a little lame, but this phone has a reasonably modest capacity of 1460mAh.
  • Pros: Looks good, barebones Android, expandable memory, great screen
  • Cons: Average battery life, quite a basic device, old version of Android

Acer CloudMobile, la recensione completa

29 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Ancora una volta ci troviamo davanti ad un ottimo smartphone, senza particolari difetti, con un software semi-stock e un prezzo molto aggressivo. Difficile rimanere delusi dall’acquisto, anche se come ormai consigliamo spesso è sempre conveniente controllare le offerte del momento, visto che ormai la guerra dei prezzi al ribasso si sta giocando proprio in questa fascia.
