    Acer's Android skin running on the large 3.6 inch OLED display is still pretty rough at the edges and needs a lot of work to compete with similar skins from HTC and Samsung.(Photo: Dr Sanjay Nigam)

    A close look at the weather widget on the home screen. One can have up-to five home screens on which various widgets can be installed. While there are a plethora of widgets to choose from, the Acer Android widgets don't match the eye-candy found on the Samsung touch wiz widgets and don't even match the intuitiveness of HTC sense.

    The rear of the device houses a decent 5-megapixel snapper, which also shoots HD videos at 720p. Although the camera performed well, the results were no way close to the ones found on the iPhone 4, which houses currently the best 5-megapixel camera in the market. (Photo: Dr Sanjay Nigam)

    A side view of the device with a close look at the volume rocker. We can clearly see this is not the slimmest Android phone in the market, at 13.5mm it is one the larger devices on the market but that is not entirely a bad thing as its curvy design lends it a form factor which makes it very comfortable to hold.
