What the Critics Are Saying...

Tech Advisor

An affordable entry-point to Google Android, and its good connectivity options, social apps and combination of a touchscreen interface and qwerty keypad make this smartphone ideal for both work and play.

- Marie Brewis, Tech Advisor

The E130 certainly has its moments. It feels robust, has an impressive keyboard and good call quality. However, it’s a tad sluggish to use and the small screen cramps Android’s style and makes it somewhat fiddly to use.

- Niall Magennis, TrustedReviews

The Acer bBeTouch E130 could be a real BlackBerry destroyer. We're willing to forgive its camera crimes, but if it wants to be a proper workhorse, Acer must update the Android software immediately.
