Acer X960 Review


As a phone, the Acer X960 performs decently. We were able to understand people on the other end; their voices were audible and clear even if a touch more quiet than we would like. We are pleased with this particular aspect of the device. People on the other end claimed they have had a less pleasing experience, though with our voices sounding loud enough, yet sharp and surreal. Still, we believe the overall in-call quality is at par with other cell phones in the same class and we consider it passable for business calls.

The Acer X960 utilizes a 533Mhz Samsung SC3 6400 processor that, we must say, performs admirably. The phone comes with 128 MB of RAM and as a whole, the hardware packs enough punch to allow smooth running of software. The interface itself is also stable and won´t give you any troubles that would keep you distracted from the important things at hand.


The Acer X960 definitely fares way better than it sibling, the DX900. Although it doesn´t allow simultaneous use of two SIM cards, it is unique with its novelty Acer Shell interface. We sincerely recommend it to anyone who is on the lookout for a new smartphone that is fast and offers great functionality. We also like it for its great personalization capabilities that make it stand out from the crowd that the Windows Mobile market is. Not last, it looks personable, so everything seems to be clear now – the Acer X960 makes for a wonderful option to any business user.
