Android version and market relevance

In February 2012 was announced smartphone Acer CloudMobile S500. It is located in the series Liquid among many others smartphones Acer.

The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the smartphone is launched “out of the box”. And Acer CloudMobile S500 works on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2012. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty Acer CloudMobile S500, unfortunately, is not updated to any new version of Android. And it′s very sad, so we would advise you to look at other models of smartphones that are called in our catalog DROID-smartphones.

Perhaps it will be important for you that the smartphone was a dualsim. Unfortunately Acer CloudMobile S500 does not support working with two SIM cards, we advise you to look at android smartphones with two SIM cards.

Screen, body and battery

By the size of the Acer CloudMobile S500 screen, we were assigned to a segment ergonomic models with a convenient body size. See for yourself, here is IPS LCD-screen with diagonal 4.3″.

Dimensions of the screen dictate to us and the size of the case. At Acer CloudMobile S500 the case turned out very thick — 9.9 mm. Today you can easily choose and buy a new smartphone with a very thin case. The battery in this model has a capacity 1 460 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

A few words about the cameras that have Acer CloudMobile S500. The main camera, located on the back, received 8 MP. The main camera we would rate her 3 out of 5, because at the moment there are cameraphones with much better cameras.

The frontcamera is also in Acer CloudMobile S500. It is located in front of the screen and has its own 2.1 MP, which for qualitative selfies it will be not enough, therefore we advise to look others selfie smartphones in our catalog.

Processor and Internal Memory

The more cores the smartphone processor has, the faster it works. Of course, do not forget that the applications should be optimized for the version of Android. But if we are talking about technical characteristics, then the processor here 2-core on the chipset Snapdragon S4 Plus. RAM 1 GB.

Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 8 GB. Do not forget that the update of the software version will be available for your smartphone, and for this you need to download it first, and if the space is not enough, it will not be able to update. Therefore, we advise you before buying to think about how much internal memory you need.

If we scared you just in the context of the built-in memory, then do not worry, because Acer CloudMobile S500 supports memory cards microSD with the maximum volume 32 GB. And this means that you can store all photos and videos with music on the memory card.

Price for Acer CloudMobile S500: buy or not to buy?

If you are looking for a camera phone, then this is not the model that suits you. If you need a smartphone with a huge touch screen, then this is not the model you are looking for. If you are looking for selfie smartphone (smartphone with a very cool front camera for shooting selfie), then this is not the model you need to buy.

Let′s step back from the lyrics and talk about money. Selling Acer CloudMobile S500 will begin in September 2012 at a price of $220. There are analogues of this model from its price segment “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300”, you can choose any smartphone for the same money.

We recommend buying a new smartphone only from trusted sellers. And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touch screen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface. Be sure to launch the “Camera” application and take a few photos and videos, then view them (there should be no artifacts or traces of dust on the lens or glass).

We picked up these models at a similar price.
