87% Review Acer Liquid S2 Phablet | Notebookcheck
Big brother. The Taiwanese manufacturer surpasses its S1 model with the latest Acer Liquid S2. The smartphone is equipped with a Full HD screen, a fast Snapdragon 800 processor and a 13 MP camera, which can even record UHD videos. This places it comfortably in the high-end category. The price for this hardware is high, as is to be expected.

Source: V3.co.uk English
The Acer Liquid S2 is undoubtedly the firm's most interesting smartphone to date and manages to challenge the Galaxy Note 3 in screen quality and processing power. Although the handset ships with an older version of Google's Android mobile operating system, we found Acer's largely vanilla user interface pleasant to use, perhaps more so than the overbearing custom user interfaces often found on other handsets with similar specifications.

Acer has worked hard to make the Liquid S2 different, with features like 4K video recording and a suite of floating apps. But some more exciting apps and better large-screen usability, for example, would be welcome.

Acer Liquid S2 hands-on review: Acer’s phablet gets a speedy specs upgrade
Source: PC Advisor English
Although there’s always a little shock when you pick up a new phablet for the first - after using your conventional smartphone for so long - the Acer Liquid S2’s overall look and feel was pretty impressive. Making a smartphone that is as big as the Liquid S2 (166 x 86 x 9 mm) look good is no mean feat, but I think Acer has managed it.

Acer Liquid Z3 Duo

Not everyone wants a big screen smartphone. Some prefer a smaller device which can easily fit in their pockets without making it look like there is a hump on your leg. The Acer Liquid Z3 Duo is made just for these people. Despite its smaller size, the Acer Liquid Z3 Duo does not comprise on toughness. It has a solid framework and a soft touch coated back gives a nice feeling when held.

Specifications wise, the Acer Liquid Z3 Duo is nothing to be awed by. However, it gives the basic functionalities that is needed for a smartphone. The dual core MediaTek A7 1 GHz processor is an average processor that will allow most applications to run somewhat smooth but won’t be able to support high requirement games. The phone also has 512 MB of RAM, which is rather low, but sufficient for casual users and 4 GB of internal memory which can be topped up by using an external micro SD card.

The Acer Liquid Z3 Duo has a neat little feature that allows up to 2 sim cards to be used. A thing to note, the sim cards have to be full-sized SIM cards. The device also supports HSPA+ but does not support 4G LTE aside from WiFi and Bluetooth.

In a nutshell, the Acer Liquid Z3 Duo is a phone that provides all basic functions but does nothing more than that.

Cheap. A 3.5-inch screen, 4 GB memory and a dual-core CPU - this small entry-level smartphone from Acer is neither a performance nor connectivity powerhouse, but it does offer a full-blown Android phone for less than 100 Euros (~$137). Is this smartphone worth the relatively meager investment? Find out in our in-depth review.

While the Acer Liquid Z3 has its moments of value, overall the sub-£100 phone doesn't do enough against rivals. The Nokia Lumia 520 or Vodafone Smart 3 would make a better purchase.

Overall the Acer Liquid Z5 is a fair proposition for those looking for a large scale screen on a budget. On that front it earns its place as a contender in the sub-£100 market and there's nothing significant at fault. Hard to argue with that.

The Acer Liquid Z5 is a low-cost phone with a very large screen, given the price. However, it is a phone that seems to trade away some important things for a few eye-catching gimmicks, such as the rear button. With a low-res screen, we can't imagine many people picking this phone over the superior Motorola Moto G.

Hurray for three SIMs. Acer's Liquid E700 Trio features a total of three SIM-card slots. A high-performance quad-core SoC, 2 GB of RAM, and a lush 16 GB of flash memory alongside an HD IPS screen are also part of the bundle. A price of 200 Euros (~$256) is demanded for that. A tasty mix in a restrained casing that will not only be interesting for corporate customers.

Acer Liquid Jade

Good, simple and budget friendly phones are becoming more of a trend for manufacturers these days. Acer has jumped into the bandwagon with the Acer Liquid Jade Android smartphone. It is one of the best looking smartphones from Acer with curved edges and sleek corners. It even looks premium in some ways with the faux-metal trim but not so much when seen from the back as its back cover is slightly plasticky . The handset measures at 140.5 mm x 69 mm x 7.5 mm and weighs in at a very light 110 g.

The Acer Liquid Jade comes with dual sim capabilities but doesn't support 4G networks. Being a new model without LTE support is a shame as this makes it not so future proof. The phone is equipped with a Mediatek MT6582 Quad-core 1.3 GHz processor coupled with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory, upgradeable with a memory card. This is by far one of the most disappointing hardware for a mid range smartphone. Like most of its rivals, it has a 5 inch 720p IPS display with 294 ppi  protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, which is good enough for the average user.

The back camera with LED flash has a resolution of 13 MP, which is high enough for a mid range smartphone. The same unit is also capable of recording FHD videos. The 2 MP front facing camera will disappoint all selfie enthusiasts. The Acer comes with a 2100 mAh battery, which suggest average standby time. All in all, the Acer Liquid Jade is a good looking mid range smartphone with a weak hardware. However, its low selling price makes up for this all.

There were several aspects of the Acer Liquid Jade that really made us smile. The first is the camera; it’s very reliable and consistent, and images come out well enough to peddle on your social network of choice. The battery life was also pretty good, and the host of power-saving features gave us even more confidence in its ability to get you through a day. Acer’s small Float apps are a neat addition too, despite being a tad niche.

On the whole, we weren’t quite sure what to make of the Acer Liquid Jade. It does everything you’d want a smartphone to do and there’s nothing necessarily wrong with the phone, but it feels there’s nothing so great about it either. Everything works, but it lacks a standout feature. The display is certainly the strongest aspect of the device, and for £159 it’s good, with crisp colours and a strong 294 PPI level, but other areas let it down.

The Acer Liquid Jade is the best looking smartphone to come from the company so far. The design is lightweight and slim, while offering a display that might not sport the highest of resolutions, but at its large 5-inch scale that makes light work of video playback and the like. Its 13-megapixel camera is one of its better features, with a dedicated app that offers more features than stock Android. Even without fiddling with the settings you'll get a decent shot with ease. The Acer Float interface is also a helpful addition for multi-tasking.

What matters to you most in a phone? If it's a decent camera, a long-lasting standby mode or the ability to use two SIMs in one handset then get the Acer Liquid Jade near the top of your shortlist. In all other respects - value, design, performance - the phone manages to do okay, but not much more than that. It's definitely Acer's best phone yet, however, and at this kind of price level it's perhaps unfair to moan too much about its shortcomings.

Acer Liquid Jade S

From the laptop producer Acer, comes a mid range smartphone named Acer Liquid Jade S. Its 5 inch IPS capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 720x1280 pixels is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Faux-metal edges gives it a classy look. The performance is speedy with the 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 octa core processor with 2 GB of RAM. With normal use like web browsing, listening to music and light gaming, the battery drain is quite noticeable. However, the power-saving mode can switch off WiFi and mobile data when not in use. This Acer smartphone features a 13 MP camera with autofocus on the rear. The secondary front camera is a 5 MP unit which shoots great images in most lighting condition. The device is available in black, white, red, or pink, which caters to both sexes alike. In a nutshell, the Acer Liquid Jade S is a great Android smartphone with Dual SIM capability and LTE network support.

Acer is heading in the right direction with the Liquid Jade S, showcasing its ability to combine an impressive design and blistering performance with an affordable price tag. That being said, there are still a few key areas where it suffers in comparison to other mid-range offerings, and as a result, the Liquid Jade S may not be at the top of everyone's wish list.

Its performance is great for the class, dual-SIM compatibility will be appreciated in developing markets, while the Asus software bundle offers some nifty perks.

Acer Liquid Jade S Review: In Depth
Source: Recombu English
Acer’s Liquid Jade S is a step above many mid-range phones thanks to its surprisingly solid camera, plus helpful features like the app multi-tasking. It’s a shame the battery only just scrapes through a day of use and takes ages to charge, but if you get in the habit of charging it overnight it shouldn’t be a problem.

The Acer Liquid Jade S is a smartphone with evident strengths and weaknesses. For starters, its design qualities are above average. Its graceful body feels thin, light, sturdy, and very comfortable, although the back panel is on the slippery side. Meanwhile, the curved glass layer is straight-up premium tier!

Acer Liquid Jade Z

With more and more consumers purchasing affordable mid-range smartphones, it is not surprising that most manufacturers are building successors to their cost friendly, mid-range devices. Acer's mid range smartphone line-up includes the Liquid Jade Z. The biggest selling point of the Acer Liquid Jade Z is no doubt its price performance ratio. It has a 5-inch screen with HD (720x1280 pixels) resolution. Its unibody construction looks like the Acer Liquid Jade S'. However, the plastic exterior and the oddly shaped rear speakers gives it a slightly cheaper look unlike other brands which can make a budget phone look premium. As for the hardware, the Acer Liquid Jade Z come with a 1.5 GHz Mediatek Cortex-A53 quad core CPU, 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage. The storage capacity is expandable via microSD. The microSD and nano SIM slot sit on a tray at the side. Apart from that, it comes with a 13 MP rear camera capable of recording FullHD videos and a 5 MP front camera for selfies. The Liquid Jade Z has a non-replaceable 2300 mAh battery and comes in black or white color. It is a well equipped smartphone for a low price putting it the Motorola G territory, but it fails to look more than its price thus it only suits persons considering specs more important than look and design.

Liquid Jade. Acer's Liquid Jade Z is a very lightweight dual-SIM smartphone with many curves. This report reveals whether the device is convincing overall.

I’ve got to admit. The styling on this, the lightness, the slimness and the pretty rapid operation of the phone and the memory handling was very good indeed. It comes with a fairly chunky batch of additional apps which are actually quite helpful and useful, adding value to the experience. Considering the relatively low price-point, that’s very good indeed.

Look at the Acer Liquid Jade Z’s spec list against its price and it starts to look like the bargain of the year. Top specs and a slim, light body make it seem like one of the best budget phones around. However, the reality is a little different. Its performance is all over the place despite having a pretty peppy CPU, making it a pain to use at time.

Priced the same as the Motorola Moto G, Acer’s Liquid Jade Z is a solid mid-range mobile that matches the mighty Moto for visual prowess but packs 4G support, making it a worthy consideration for anyone who wants to stream video on the go. Sadly the battery life means you'll struggle to make it through a full day, while the occasional camera or performance funny also detracts from the overall experience.
