phoneCURRY Review Summary

Based on 4 expert review(s), listed below (how is this review summary prepared?)

  • 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
