Acer Stream review: White water rafting


Acer may be new to the smartphone game but they're learning fast. On paper, the Acer Stream has all the right ingredients to tackle the HTC Desire and the Nexus One. With much stronger emphasis on multimedia than the titular Google phone, the Acer...

Acer Stream Review


It seems to haven't made Acer give up on the high-end smartphone business, as we now witness their second foray with the Acer Stream. What do we expect from this handset? You know that in most cases the second-generation product is more mature than the...

Acer Stream Coming Soon?


Notes:  The Acer Stream has been submitted to the FCC for approval, which indicates it may be available relatively soon - even without an official given

The Acer Stream is Acer's powerhouse addition to the Android lineup. Rockin' a 3.7 inch screen and a 1GHz processor, this phone can keep up with the best of them.

Add to the mix a 5 megapixel camera with 720p video recording, an FM radio, and 2 gb of internal storage and this phone could definitely be one of the big players.

Acer take a stab at smartphone supremacy

Expert review by:

Acer Stream Android smartphone


Acer recently launched its line of Android mobile phones in Australia, and sitting at the top of the company's range is the Stream: an Android smartph...

HDMI-out port, 720p video recording, attractive design and build, large display, 3D UI effects, good performance

Awkward external buttons, Acer's UI customisation not entirely welcome, no camera flash, HDMI-out port limited to photos and video

Acer has pitched its Stream smartphone as a multimedia powerhouse, but it fails to live up to expectations. The Acer Stream is far from a bad smartphone, but given its price it doesn't do enough to be considered a valid alternative to more proven...

Acer Stream review


The Acer Stream is the company's latest flagship handset, following on from the Liquid and Liquid E before it. Acer isn't a company with a great history in mobile devices and so far has enjoyed limited success. It's clear that Acer is committed to this...

Some interesting tweaks by Acer, Dolby Mobile, no sign of lag from the OS

Custom UI might be a little too constrained for some, video capture isn't that impressive, video shortcut buttons seem superfluous

Whilst the Acer Stream doesn't quite reach the heights that other handsets have, Acer is starting to get close. We've found the Stream to be capable, if not as desirable as others, and we can't help feeling that with a little more work, Acer could...

Acer Stream review


The Stream is Acer's best smartphone ever. But is it even in the same league as rest?

Dolby Mobile sound equaliser is great ; Screen resolution is superb ; Good web browser ; Great media integration in nemoPlayer ; Strong macro mode in camera

720p video is jerky ; Screen is pale outdoors ; Needs a bigger battery ; Complex widget management ; Silly language selection key on keyboard

None of these problems are insurmountable, and we can't wait to see what wonders Acer might produce if it concentrates on sorting out these niggles.

Acer Stream


The Stream has a ferociously fast processor and impressive OLED screen, so can it challenge the best Android smartphones?

It’s quite a weird set up and in truth we didn’t think it worked all that well as it just seems to overcomplicate things. We also found it rather awkward having to move away from the homescreen to get at your widgets. Thankfully, you can turn all this...

Acer Stream review


The Acer Stream is a Google Android 2.1 smartphone with a 3.7in screen, a 5Mp camera and solid battery life. Here's our review.

With 15 to choose from right now, Acer is taking a scattergun approach to its Android phone line-up. The Acer Stream is one of the better-equipped, although there’s little here to recommend this me-too handset over competitors from HTC or Motorola.
