Video Review: Rogers Acer Liquid E
9 May 2014
Excerpt: The Acer Liquid E was recently released by Rogers and it’s their newest Android-powered device. This runs OS 2.1 and I believe this will be included in the few devices that will get an upgrade to the new OS 2.2 when it’s released. The overall design of the Liquid E is well put together. Sleek, all decked out in a glossy back with curved edges (dimensions are 116×54×12.75mm and weighs in at only 135 grams). The specs are solid too.
Conclusion: The Acer Liquid E Ferrari is a decent smartphone with a bright display and a powerful camera. We’re not fans of the Ferrari styling and the lack of a trackpad and flash puts us off too but if you’re desperate for a Ferrari banded phone, you could do worse.
Summary: You can purchase the smartphone for $540-740. This price range is valid for certified Acer Liquid E Ferrari. At first I wanted to write a depressing conclusion as I expected impeccable build and rich configuration from a Ferrari branded product. Then I compared the price of Liquid E and Liquid E Ferrari – they were quite close. Both models can be had for $540-580, so the difference lies in colors and accessories from the box, which cost exactly $40.
Summary: The connection quality and signal reception are impeccable. To my mind the speaker is not loud enough, while the loudspeaker is fine. The vibro is medium and can be felt in the majority of cases.
The smartphone will go on sale soon for around $525. If compared with rival models I think the price is right. Obviously for the same money you can get HTC Desire with Sense and 1 GHz processor, but there are two points here.
Conclusion: Although I found this phone to be quite feature packed. I just don’t think it’s really worth it. The phone in general is an under-clocked fatter version of the Sony Xperia X10. Acer has thrown in a bunch of useless applications and widgets that slowed down the phone tremendously. What I did like about the phone was the amazing LCD screen. It’s very clear and bright and probably one of the best quality LCD screen’s I’ve seen, but not the largest.

Summary: Acer's Liquid E offers good performance and all the features of Google's Android OS, but its questionable build quality and the fact it lacks any real wow factor makes it a tough sell - especially without a carrier.
Pros: Impressive performance, curved design, notifying LED icons, upgradeable to Android 2.2, battery life
Cons: Flimsy build quality compared to competitors, lacks wow factor, glossy screen hard to see in direct sunlight
