Conclusion: Acer’s Liquid Mini is a very portable Android smartphone, and another welcome addition to the mid-range smartphone catalogue. You're able to browse the web, check your emails and it does everything you'd expect a smartphone can do. But it's let down by cheap build quality, and other shortcomings.
Acer Liquid Mini – a very attractive little device
17 August 2011
Conclusion: The Acer Liquid Mini is already available in most European countries, although no network has picked it up in the US. If you want a simple Android smartphone that looks great and doesn’t cost as much as a Sony Ericsson, this is a perfect variant!
Summary: Acer Liquid Mini is a good phone for those who have a limited budget and want a feature-rich touchscreen phone. If you are looking for a great camera phone, this is not the one. At a street price of Rs. 10,900 this phone is economically priced, but it still has some shortcomings which we have highlighted in the review.
Pros: Android 2.2 preinstalled (and upgradeable to v2.3), Implementation of Breeze UI is quite good, Affordable pricing
Cons: Camera quality is not good, Poor legibility of screen under bright sunlight

Excerpt: The Acer Liquid Mini is a miniature Android powered smartphone aimed at the entry level market. In a heavily saturated environment does the Liquid Mini glide through the competition or does it quickly boil over and simmer to the side?
Conclusion: The Acer Liquid Mini has a very appealing jazzy look coupled with a curved rounded body, but as much as we liked that, we couldn't help but notice the slight lag even in the main menu. On the positive side, you have an affordable price tag which helps you swallow that bitter pill, and you still get a smartphone running the rich in features Android Froyo.
Excerpt: Sooner or later all Android manufacturers shift their accents from top models to the budget segment just like HTC and Samsung that started with expensive models only and then smoothly shifted to the medium and low price range, and just like Acer. Except Acer has had inexpensive robots before Liquid mini but this phone is an exception – Acer did not simply create another Android but expanded the Liquid family that used to offer only phones in the higher than medium price...
Excerpt: Acer has expanded its Liquid series of smartphones to include this pint-sized entry-level model, known as the Acer Liquid Mini E310. The fact that it's available in a range of colours (blue, pink, black, silver and green) suggests that it's aimed at younger users who are making their first foray into the smartphone arena. The compact handset measures a diminutive 110.4 x 57.5 x 13mm and at just 109g, it's pretty light too.
Pros: Compact design, range of colours, decent battery life
