It’s also the first Acer phone to run on an Atom chip and overall, feedback on the device has been good in terms of both performance and looks. If that’s not enough to make you want to give this device a look, perhaps Acer’s historically cheaper pricing for their device may be enough to get you  to check it out at the very least.
