Acer CloudMobile S500


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

Acer CloudMobile S500


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...

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


Will this cloud-connected phone do enough to win us over?

Stunning screen ; Great for video ; Good build quality ; Impressive audio ; Fast and powerful

Disappointing cloud features ; Only 8GB internal storage ; Poor contacts system ; Not stylish ; Poor battery

Despite being a known name, Acer is still a relatively small player in the smartphone market. It keeps dipping its toes in but its output is dwarfed by the likes of Samsung and HTC, and it is yet to find much success.

Acer CloudMobile S500


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...

Acer S500 Cloud Mobile – Review


I've been using the Acer S500 Cloud Mobile as my main phone for a few weeks now and it's time to bring you the full review. My initial conclusion was that the Cloud Mobile was a great phone that seemed like it was going to be let down by the 1460 mAh...

Overall the Acer S500 Cloud Mobile is a great phone. Acer really have strung together the perfect combination of pieces to make a small, easy to handle, yet powerful to quickly get the job done. They have just made one mistake, the 1460mAh battery...

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 -...

Great screen ; Useful software additions ; Excellent performance

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