Model: The Acer Liquid Zest Plus may be touted as a mid-range smartphone, yet it certainly is not an average phablet. It is equipped with a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels. The device runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and its performance is powered by a 1.3 GHz MediaTek MT6735 quad-core processor with 2 GB of RAM. The internal storage of the Liquid Zest Plus has a capacity of 16 GB and up to 32 GB can be added via MicroSD slot. Although it is not NFC compliant, it is capable of supporting USB OTG devices. In addition, the phone comes with a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera.
Ample connectivity is supported by WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth. Moreover, the phone features an FM radio receiver. One key highlight of the Liquid Zest Plus is its huge battery capacity of 5000 mAh, which arguably dispenses with the need to lug around a power bank for on-the-go charging purposes. However, the battery is not removable. The smartphone comes in two color variants, i.e. blue and white. Albeit it is largely from plastic, its capacity under the hood together with a long-lasting battery will surely offer users much zest.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.
