Comment

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.

ARM Mali-T720 MP2: Integrated graphics card in ARM based SoCs. Can be configured with up to 8 cores (T720 MP8) and 650 MHz core clock (at 28nm). Supports OpenGL ES 3.1, OpenCL 1.1, DirectX 11 FL9_3, and Renderscript. These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
MT6735: A 64-bit quad-core SoC (4x ARM Cortex-A53) clocked at up to 1.5 GHz and designed for inexpensive tablets and smartphones.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

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.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

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.


81.5%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
