Acer Iconia Smart

price: N/A|launch: Nov, 2011

quick review summary

  • + Excellent build quality
  • + High quality, responsive touchscreen
  • + Acer has some useful customizations over the stock Android experience
  • + Excellent video watching experience (high pixel density, cinema screen format)
  • + Good audio quality and earphones
  • + Decent camera
  • + Good call quality with noise cancellation
  • + Decent loudspeaker
  • 21:9 cinema screen ratio leads to a uniquely long design, which may not appeal to everyone
  • Large dimensions (length) make it inconvenient to carry in a pocket at times
  • The length of the phone also makes it difficult to use the bottom buttons (if operated with one hand)
  • Most of the apps do not use the full 4.8-inches of screen real estate (the space below appears as a black blob)
  • Fairly heavy
