Hello,

I am thinking to buy the Acer CloudMobile and I have a few questions that maybe an owner of the phone could answer:

1. Some reviews say that the call quality is not good. Is this true?
2. Do you get "touch focus" for the video recording or can you lock the focus in any other way? Or is it always autofocus?
3. Can you take photos while recording video? If yes, in what resolution?
4. How much time does it take to charge the battery? (0% to 100%)
5. How is the quality of the photos and videos? I read conflicting opinions from diferent reviews on this one!

Thanks!

1 for me the call quality is good
2 in the video there is a continuos focus, you can't use touch focus
3 yes, at 1920x1088
4 for me 1:30 h
5 the photos and videos are good (not at the same level of a galaxy s3 for example)

Thanks!

With only continues focus do you often get that issue that every now and then it goes out of focus for a second, especially when there is some movement in the scene? I noticed that this happens with many smartphones with autofocus.

And another thing: Is the dead pixels issue common with this phone? And if I have such issue (or another) will Expansys exchange it? (that is where I am buying it from)

Thanks

In all reviews it says it has a very good screen. Are you talking about the dead pixels issue? Is this a common problem with this phone?

The screen is exceptionally good. I don't know any exact numbers about the dead pixels, but remember that only people with a problem post about it, you never hear from the large majority for which everything is okay. The screen is very bright and has an incredible pixel density of 340 ppi, an iPhone 5 has 326 ppi. For around 250 euro, this device is one of the best you can get.

Yes, the great value is what drew me to this phone. If I buy the phone from Expansys (€200) will they exchange it if it has any dead pixels or other problems?

And what about the call quality? None of you had any issues with this? Some reviews mention this as a problem with this phone.

They will replace any problems, European law dictates that they have to offer min. 2 years of free warranty.

I've never had problems with the call quality, but I don't have much comparison, because my previous phones were very shitty in general.

1. Some reviews say that the call quality is not good. Is this true? <- for me this has the loudest call sound and quality of all android phones i ever had with this its nice and i can hear what others say
2. Do you get "touch focus" for the video recording or can you lock the focus in any other way? Or is it always autofocus? <- for me it focuses if i press on screen or auto atleast it works properly and good
3. Can you take photos while recording video? If yes, in what resolution? yeah u can also u can take screenshoot while recording aswell
4. How much time does it take to charge the battery? (0% to 100%) 1.30h
5. How is the quality of the photos and videos? I read conflicting opinions from diferent reviews on this one! amazing

Spacecaker, what are the Xperia and Samsung devices that you have? How does the CM compare to them? I am also considering Xperia S (a bit more expensive) and Galaxy S3 (much more expensive)

I've tried some different version of Samsung S3 and to me is not smooth as cloud mobile.. Sometimes S3 is really much laggy
