Acer Allegro, Budget Windows Phone in Review


The top notch mobile phone manufacturing companies seems to be manufacturing Windows Phone after seeing its popularity among the mobile phone users. Acer also actively took part in the battle of manufacturing the best Windows Phone and launched a Windows Phone for the first time.

Acer launched its first Windows Phone in the market and the handset has been named as Acer Allegro. The device is boosted with the latest Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, which doubles the fun of the phone.

Acer Allegro Review

The handset has a dimensional measurement of 116mm (h) x 59mm (w) x 13mm (d) and is a little thick but quite light with the weight being 126g. The device has a striking 3.6 inch WVGA screen and powered by 1 GHz processor. Though the hardware of the device is not high-end, but it  functions pretty well and can match some of the high end Windows Phone 7 based phones in performance.

The device is considered among the low-end devices but offers some of the high-end features like a 5 megapixel camera with the resolution of 2592×1944 pixels with LED flash and auto focus that enables to capture high quality images & video recording, 1 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM, a GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth for connectivity. One feels that the handset lacks in the storage capacity section as it has a storage capacity of 8GB and there is no card slot available too. It has an standard Li-ion 1300 battery that can give the users a talk time of 6 hours. In the connectivity segment the Acer Allegro has Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1.

Acer Allegro is another Windows based Smartphone featuring very attractive candy bar form factor design and works on dual 2G GSM & 3G HSPA network.

Acer Allegro Price

Acer Allegro price is one more factor that can turn the crowd towards it as the device is available for €299 or $400, but to make it more flexible for you, you can pick it up with any contract that suits your pocket.


Though, the device do not carries anything that can make it stand unique in the crowd of Smartphones, but what can make it different at least from its prior devices is the Windows operating system and that too the latest version of the Windows Phone installed in the Acer Allegro.
