Another Windows Mobile handset from Acer, but with few standout features.

Since the acquisition of E-Ten phone maker last year, the Acer neoTouch has been the third smartphone from the company. It also features the Windows Mobile 6.5 OS.

Its 3.8 inch display dominates the front. The handset has a tough glass coating which gives it a premium feel. It has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels and excellent colour reproduction.

The touchscreen is used for most functions. A stylus can be found in the upper right corner.

Windows Mobile 6.5 is a better operating system than the older Windows Mobile versions. It has larger icons that are easier to grasp with smaller fingers, and intuitive menus. But, if you dig deeper, you will still discover many tiny options for small hands or use of the stylus.

The phone lacks the same slickness or aesthetic appeal as rivals like Google's Android OS. However, the 1GHz processor ensures that it is responsive and fast.

Although the onscreen keyboard works well for text messages short, it is not as good as rivals like the iPhone, HTC Magic, and HTC Touch Diamond 2. You'll need to be very precise when pressing the buttons on your screen. Otherwise, mistakes can easily happen.

Triple connections

The standard for wireless connectivity includes 3G/HSDPA and Wi-Fi, as well as Bluetooth. You can browse the web on your mobile device and connect to the office and home networks.

Google Maps is preinstalled. With assisted GPS, the neoTouch can also be used as a satellite navigation device. Office Mobile, which includes portable versions of Word Excel Powerpoint and Excel, is another preinstalled program. This allows you to use work apps on the go.

Acer is sticking with Microsoft's Internet Explorer web browser over the Opera browser on other phones. Despite this, it's still easy to navigate the internet from wherever you may be.

A dedicated shutter button is located on the sides of the 5-megapixel camera. This switches the phone automatically into landscape mode, allowing for better photography. However, the image quality is poor with dull colours and excessive noise in dark conditions. However, the flash is bright enough to help with night shots.

Limited memory

Although the 256MB user memory is very limited, there are microSD cards that can be used to increase storage. Memory card users who want to save their music will appreciate the addition of a regular headphone jack. This makes it simple to attach your headphones.

The battery life under moderate usage is very poor, with only two days between charges.

The neoTouch S200 doesn't have a terrible reputation. Although it is sturdy and has a big screen, the phone lacks some of its best features.
