Acer M900 Review
Performance:

In-call quality is a vital aspect of any cell phone, no matter the class or type. The Acer M900 performs really well in this respect. Voices are loud and clear through the built-in earpiece and you would even have to turn down the volume a bit. The situation is identical on the other end and people you are talking to will be able to hear you without any issues.

Come to stability and speed of the operating system, the Acer M900 performs above the average. Just like any other Windows Mobile device, certain delay is evident on starting applications, although this is not a real issue in this case, plus you can easily get used to it. We didn’t encounter any major hold-ups or significant lagging when opening apps from the Acer Shell interface. Our only gripe is about the accelerometer than gets inadequate at times, especially when turning your phone sideways to landscape position. Definitely unpleasant and annoying.



Conclusion:

We won´t beat about the bush. The Acer M900 is not a good Windows Mobile, business oriented device. Yes, it sports a function that is quite rare to find on cell phones – fingerprint sensor, it performs well during talks, features handy interface and organizer function, its browser has full flash support and the camera is not bad at all. Yet, the handset is plagued by one major drawback outweighs all other aspects – a low amount of memory. The lack of enough free RAM renders the browser virtually unusable and makes the multitasking function, simply put, downright inferior, especially with several applications running in the background. And finally, the accelerometer is annoyingly inadequate.

All told, we do not consider the Acer M900 a good investment, mainly because of the bad hardware implementation (not enough memory available for multitasking). The better performing HTC Touch Pro2 is in the same price category, comes free of irritating issues and we would definitely prefer it to the M900.
