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.

When you look down the specifications list the main requirements for a high-end smartphone are all here, but some compromises have been made. For example the 600MHz Qualcomm processor is a little behind the times when you consider that 1GHz processors are fairly widespread these days. The more applications you have going at the same time the slower the neoTouch P400 runs, and in everyday use waiting for it to catch up with your requests could prove tedious. Though to be fair this is nothing we've not seen before in all but the highest specified smartphones.

The camera, too, is an area where savings have been made on the device build. It shoots stills to 3.2 megapixels and it lacks a flash. Now, flashes on smartphones are notorious for only being much good at close quarters, but not having one at all makes it difficult to get any kind of good quality shots indoors. We also noticed some shutter lag when taking photos.

The camera does benefit from having auto focus though, and the GPS that is built in can be used to geotag photos, which you might find useful.

The other specifications include the ubiquitous and necessary Wi-Fi and HSDPA as well as Bluetooth. There isn't a vast amount of internal storage, but a microSD card slot sits under the battery cover, you can get to it without removing the battery, and can use microSD cards to add up to 16GB of additional storage.
