Reviews for the Acer Liquid Z5

74% Review Acer Liquid Z5 Smartphone | Notebookcheck
Affordable mid-range. Acer's Liquid Z5 jumps on the bandwagon of 5-inch smartphones and catches attention at first glance with a price of 170 Euros (~$234). But what does it have to offer?

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.
