Acer S110 Stream

I will soon be posting my review of the Acer S110 Stream but in the mean time I thought I would comment on my initial reactions to the device and post a few images. The Stream is Acer’s attempt to create a top-of-the-range smartphone capable of cutting with the likes of the Galaxy S and iPhone. For the most part, the phone lives up to the task when we consider its specifications on paper: HSDPA/HSUPA/EDGE/GPRS, Qualcomm QSD 8250 1Ghz processor, 512MB ROM & RAM, 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED display, 5.0-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi b/g/n and expandable microSD card-slot.

Indeed, the Stream is a great phone and feels like one in the hand. For me, though, there is something missing so far that I haven’t quite put a finger on (figuratively and literally) that would make this phone a giant contender. This is surprising since it features some useful additions such as dedicated hardware keys on the bottom of the device and a truly customised version of Android which we’ll get into later in the full review. For now though, check out a couple of pictures after the jump and let me know if you have any specific questions you would like answered about this device.

    Does it have a front facing camera for video calls? Thanks for your help.

  • Hi Sam. No, unfortunately it does not.
