“…It has really good sensitivity for a Windows Mobile device and we didn’t encounter any issues with it. Image quality is less striking, because colors don’t gradate smoothly, due to the limited color support – 65k and what´s even worse, direct sunlight turns it into a flawless mirror. That´s how we, your humble reviewers, found out we in desperate need of a shave, although the phone failed to deliver any other useful information.. -team”

I think this phone is okay but not great as HTC due choppy performance on video playback with Samsung 533Mhz  processor. The reason it slow because of lack of GPU support for display acceleration.  Acer still not aware the important of GPU since Eten.

Acer F900 come with great SiRF star III GPS sensor  …however it would slowdown when navigating cpu (and memory) intensive GPS mapping program. The RAM capacity itself has only 128MB which is too small and hogging down alot delay when running memory intensive program.

My verdict – NOT worth
