Not only does the M900 have a better camera than the F900 – at 5Mp versus 3.2Mp – but it also has more of them, with Acer deciding to fit it with a forward facing VGA camera for video calls. The main camera in the M900 is about as good as you are going to get in a Windows handset and it can shoot still images up to a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1920 and video at up to 640 x 480.

The main 5Mp camera features three autofocus settings

The camera comes with a reasonable array of extras and effects, including a facility to shoot three, five or nine images in quick succession. Also, a focus setting that can be set to centre, face or multi-zone plus selection of light balance settings and a four position manual ISO override.

As you can see from the samples – taken on full auto at noon – the M900 takes a decent enough picture with fine colour saturation and crisp detailing. In fact, the only thing wrong with camera is the position of the button. Being on the ‘top’ of the phone as you hold it, the handset has a tendency to slide open when you try to take a picture. The flash is a small LED affair that produces predictably poor results when shooting in low light.
