Acer CloudMobile S500 review: Out of the blue

 

As the industry moves forward, you no longer need to pay top dollar to find a capable smartphone.

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Tri-band HSPA ; 4.3" 16M-color IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen of 720 x 1280 pixel resolution (~342 ppi) ; 8 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, 1080p@30fps video recording, HDR, touch focus ; 720p front-facing...

No word on Jelly Bean update for now ; Not the most compact smartphone with a 4.3" screen around ; Relatively modest battery life ; All plastic construction ; Sub-par camera performance

We first heard of the Acer CloudMobile S500 a couple of weeks before the Mobile World Congress in February. Back then it was supposed to be a cream of the crop, flagship device with a dual-core Krait chip, 720p screen and the latest Android on board -...

Acer CloudMobile review: an ambitious Android phone that arrived a little too late

Great screen ; Useful software additions ; Excellent performance

Front camera is poor ; Cloud service not very flexible

Acer's CloudMobile is a solid smartphone that will serve most moderate level Android users, and shows promise for future devices from the brand

Looks good, barebones Android, expandable memory, great screen

Average battery life, quite a basic device, old version of Android

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...

Acer CloudMobile S500 review

 

Reasonably priced Android phones are a mixed bag. At £100 you have the bargain-basement, but still very likeable phones that are popular on pay as you go - think Orange San Francisco 2 and T-Mobile Vivacity. Then there are the £200 phones, like the...

Average battery life, quite a basic device, old version of Android

If this phone shipped with Jelly Bean, it would basically be a no-brainer. It's a good, mid-range handset that's truly a pleasure to use. It's perhaps a little outclassed by the more powerful Nexus 4 which, while lacking in upgrade for memory, has a...

Can Acer's latest mid-range handset ignite its smartphone fortunes?

Attractive design ; Stunning screen ; Decent performance from the dual core processor ; MicroUSB port supports HDMI via MHL

Camera isn’t great ; Battery life is below par ; More expensive than the Google Nexus 4

Prise off the cover on the rear and you'll find that there's a removable battery inside, as well as a microSD card slot. This accepts cards of up to 32GB in size allowing you to boost the phone's internal 8GB of memory. The S500 also uses a microSIM...

Acer CloudMobile S500 Review: In Depth

 

Acer's belated flagship has finally arrived, offering incredible performance at an incredibly low price point.

Powerful hardware ; Great screen ; Incredible value for money

Cheap, plastic construction ; Poor audio recording and playback ; Weak UI design

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,...

Meet the Acer CloudMobile S500, a budget Android phone with specs that are not to be sniffed at. For just £179.99 SIM-free, you get a 4.3-inch HD screen powered by a speedy dual-core 1.5GHz processor, plus all the apps Android can handle. Is this a...

The Acer CloudMobile proves that the company has come a long way since its first tepid attempts at Android smartphones. It’s certainly one of the best smartphones to be had for under £200 SIM-free. But if you can stretch to just a little bit more, the...
