Acer neoTouch P400 review

We review the Acer neoTouch P400 to see how it stacks up against other Windows Mobile-based smartphones and the competition.

But Windows Marketplace, despite having been around for a while now, lacks the sheer number of applications available to users of Android based smartphones and the iPhone. If you are the kind of user who wants to constantly reinvent their smartphone by adding applications then the neoTouch P400 probably isn't going to be suitable.

We found call quality to be perfectly good during testing, and battery life was acceptable too. The 1090mAh battery kept the handset going for a day provided we did not want to use the GPS or Wi-Fi for extended periods. That's about par for the course for a smartphone these days.

Verdict

The Acer neoTouch P400 is an average rather than outstanding smartphone. And the physical design has a definite whiff of the iPhone about it.

The Windows Mobile 6.5.3 operating system is more finger-friendly than Microsoft’s predecessors, and Acer has chosen not to ‘skin’ it. For those who find the current trend towards ‘skinning’ Microsoft’s smartphone operating system a bit annoying, it could be a good choice, but bear in mind that there is an all new version of Windows Mobile not far around the corner.
