Acer’s Jade Primo is the Acer flagship Windows Phone announced last year. Like other high-end Windows Phone devices announced in the past year, this phone is primarily aimed at businesses and the enterprise market.

In terms of sheer specs, the phone is no slouch. It features a 5.5 inch 1080p screen with no air gap,  a Snapdragon 808 processor, 21 MP rear and 8 MP camera front facing camera. Acer gave us a look at this device and the idea behind making it yesterday at MWC, and these are our impressions of the handset qua handset.

The first thing you notice about any phone is the screen, and Acer has done a good job with the Jade Primo’s screen here. The AMOLED display is bright and clear, with the 1080p screen ensuring you see nearly no pixels and blacks being as deep as expected. It’s not as good as the 950’s screen, but it is still a good screen regardless.

Like the 950, it is also made of plastic/polycarbonate, but the brushed, curved back of the Primo’s design feel good in the hand and are more comfortable than the 950 in my opinion.

The Snapdragon 808 ran as expected with 3GB of RAM to back it up with nary a lag or a stutter to slow down the experience. While it isn’t the latest silicon from Qualcomm – it is still flagship quality.

Acer’s Jade Primo may not exactly be a mass market device, but it’s still a pretty good phone and any Windows user would be well served with this as a device.
