Another affordable offering from Acer has landed in our laps and this time it takes the form of the Acer CloudMobile S500. This handset initially arrived at Mobile World Congress 2012, so how does it fare one year on, now that it's finally here?The...

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...

In the end, the AcerCloud service isn’t enough of a draw to pull me toward the CloudMobile S500 and away from other well specified phones at a similar price. That’s a shame given that Acer has decided to advertise its cloud service in the phone’s name....

If it feels like we've kept the the lid on our enthusiasm throughout this review, well, we have. It's no surprise that a phone we first saw back in February isn't offering swoon-inducing specifications in November. However, there are a few occasions...

Al bij al is deze acer en indrukwekkend toestel dat ik de komende dagen met plezier verder zal uittesten. Dit toestel is ondanks zijn mid-range prijs echt wel high-end. Aleen die 8 GB geheugen vallen op dat vlak wat uit de toon. in zijn prijsklasse...
