Acer neoTouch / F1 review

Acer neoTouch
Pocketnow just posted their full review of Acer’s SnapDragon powered neoTouch / F1 smartphone running Windows Mobile 6.5 . Aside from the fast CPU and relatively cheap price they weren’t really impressed with the device. Here’s their final impressions:

OVERALL IMPRESSION
The neoTouch S200 is comparable to an inexpensive sports car that has a turbocharged engine but lacks in quality in every other aspect. You know the type. While it’s great that Acer was able to build a Snapdragon chipset into their top of the line device, and while it’s great that they succeeded in making a truly fast device, it’s still an Acer phone. Build quality is low, the software is buggy, and the device lacks certain features and functions that a high end device should have like a good camera and good speakerphone. My advice to you: if you want cheap speed, the neoTouch will make you happy. But if you want a more well-rounded device that exhibits the qualities of a top-tier smartphone, check out the Samsung Omnia II or the upcoming HTC HD2.

For my part I would say that you should also skip the Omnia II and just wait for the HTC HD2 (or future capacitive Windows Mobile devices). From my experience, the resistive screen on the Omnia II isn’t good at all and it won’t be upgradable to WM7 like the HD2 (offiacially or unofficialy).

    Yes neoTouch & Omnia II. Only the HTC HD2 is susceptible to be upgraded to WM7.

    This is a lie. the Acer Neotouch has hardware requirements enough for upgrade to WM7.

    LOL, no it does not. It lacks a multi-touch panel and a digital compass…
