Acer neoTouch S200 reviewed, hated

Acer neoTouch s200
Well it looks like Acer is on a mission to ruin Windows Mobile. Today PhoneArena posted their review of theSnapdragon powered Acer neTouch S200 (Acer F1) and it doesn’t look nice at all. Just like the beTouch E200, the neTouch S200 suffers from some major problems:

It´s time everyone heard the verdict. Guilty as charged! Just a joke, of course. Now, let´s get to brass tacks. The Acer neoTouch S200 is a Windows phone that is equipped with really capable hardware components, but its software has not been properly optimized, which leads to occasional lagging. Moreover, the social network integration that Acer promised is perfunctory – aside from the Facebook app, all the others fail to deliver even basic functions like video upload on YouTube. To top it off, the Acer neoTouch S200 is a mediocre performer in terms of in-call quality, which is not a minor disadvantage.

Everything about the Acer´s first 1GHz handset goes to show the manufacturer needs to put a lot of efforts into their devices before catching up with its major rivals – HTC and Samsung. We would recommend that you opt for the Samsung Omnia II I8000, HTC Touch Diamond2 or wait for the HTC HD2 if you intend to get a device with huge display and 1GHz processor.

    Do you people even know how to use Windows Mobile? If you don’t like what is bundled with the OEM phone, just log onto the interwebs or even Microsoft’s Marketplace and download whatever social networking app you desire. Your articles are way too biased.
