Is it just me... or does it look like an ugly POS? Kind of like an uglier version of an old Motorola design from 5 years ago... with a horrible screen.

Acer has never good good at design. I think they've had one product (S7) in the last 10 years that didn't look terrible.

Oh, tut tut. :) A phone is not a phone is not a phone.

Comparing this to a hot new flagship is like comparing a Ferrari to a Honda Fit. If you compare them and say, "The Honda Fit has a laughably weak engine compared to this Ferrari," you are technically correct but entirely missing the point.

I think these very inexpensive smartphone options are wonderful, because there are throngs of people, in the U.S. and around the world, that simply cannot afford an expensive handset.

I would beg of you not to belittle these inexpensive phones. For some people, they're a godsend.

Yeah true, I was joking in my post but it didn't come off quite that way. :lol:

Plus there's also the need for people who engage in, um, shadier activities that need a second low cost no contract phone line to stay off the grid, if you catch my drift. :lol:
