Acer beTouch E210 Review
The call quality of the Acer beTouch E210 is disappointing. On our side, people sounded a little bit muted, even on maximum volume, and we couldn't hear their voices clearly, although they were legible. We were told by our callers on the other side of the line that we sounded unnatural and a bit digitally. For people in the big cities, it's probably even worse that background noise was easily heard.

This handset is powered by a 600MHz Qualcomm MSM7227 processor, which is good enough for this phone, and all processes are executed in a timely manner. Moreover, the Acer beTouch E210's battery life is decent, and this device can easily get you through a day of average usage.


Conclusion:

The strong sides of this phone are the fact it comes with Froyo - the Android craze is raging around the world - and its physical QWERTY, which is really comfy to use.

Sadly, its cons overpower the Acer beTouch E210's pros. The browsing experience suffers notably from the low resolution and the small resistive screen. Moreover, this handset's camera makes some truly appalling photos and videos, not to mention that the call quality of the Acer beTouch E210 is not good at all.

If you are in the market for a low-end handset with a physical QWERTY, then you may take a look at the Motorola CHARM - fair enough, it's destined to stay with Android 2.1 until the end of time, and it may be a bit outdated as we're well into 2011 now, but the truth is it's an all around better phone than the Acer beTouch E210.

Pros

  • The very presence of Froyo
  • Comfy to use physical QWERTY

Cons

  • Resistive screen and low resolution
  • Not good as a phone
  • Uncomfortable browsing
  • Shoots awful photos and videos

I've been using this phone for about 2 weeks and what I have noticed so far is.

1. Battery life isn’t that good (1300 mh) is only good for around 10-12 hours per day.
2. Audio quality when using the phone is poor and the audio from mp3's and other audio formats is also very poor.
3. Touch screen is not good (compared to my previous Motorola Cliq).
4. Keyboard is nowhere near as good as the Motorola or my previous Blackberry (it just feels cheap!)

5. "Would I buy this phone again?". probably not

i have been using this phone for the past 3 weeks.
1.it processes unwanted apps which i have never even opened so need to force stop it every 2hrs.
2.unlike other androids this cell does not have a task manager which gives an option of killing apps.
3.it take a lot of time to process contacts i have no clue why n also dont no if its my phone or is it usually like this.
at the end i m never coming back to acer n m trying to get it exchanged with some other phone.

I have purchased mobile on 27/08/2011.Totally dissatisfied with battery.I am yet to use internet and has been using for just making mob calls and sending sms.The battery charged full in the morning before usage begins around 9.00 a.m.Usage may be just max 50 inward&outward calls taken together and around 10 to 15 sms.immediately by evening around 5.pm msg is displyed on screen battery has just 15% charge left.This is nothing but atrocious.I hereby call for ACER to recall the product and provide me a better option failing which i have to think of approaching consumer forums for redressal of greivance
