[test] Acer Liquid S1, la Phablette pour tous
14 January 2015
Summary: Aveuglé par la guerre entre Samsung et Apple sur le haut de gamme, on en viendrait presque à oublier les propositions moins tapageuses.
Et clairement, le Liquid S1 est une excellente surprise : son design m’a laissé sur ma faim et la qualité de ses matériaux et de sa finition est plutôt quelconque,...
Pros: + Rapport équipement/prix imbattable, + Écran HD de bonne facture, + Batterie amovible, + Deux emplacements SIM, + Extensible via Micro SD
Cons: - Finition low cost (le bouton de mise en marche donne l’impression qu’il va un jour rester enfoncé), - Qualité des matériaux en retrait, - Beaucoup trop d’application preinstallées, - 5,7 pouces, ça commence à faire gros pour une poche de pantalon
Summary: Over the course of 2013, the smartphone arena has gone through some serious changes as the newcomers into the scene have made quite a big splash by offering consumers very affordable devices with close to high-end specs.
Pros: Dual-SIM support, Affordably priced, Wide-angle front camera, AcerCloud
Cons: Heavy, Build quality could be better, Display viewing angles
Summary: Acer really has a nice offering in the form of the Liquid S1. It has a large HD display, great build and design, good camera, dual-SIM capabilities, and very decent battery life too. It even comes with a really neat leatherette flip cover out of the box.
Summary: Liquid gold? We received the production model of the 5.7-inch Acer Liquid S1 phablet two months after the pre-production one. But we have noticed more than just improvements. Will the Acer phablet receive a purchase recommendation?
Pros: Chic design, Good workmanship, Bright display, Low energy consumption, Good performance scores, That Acer developed useful additions to the software and offer a lot of accessories.
Cons: Little internal storage space, Poorly tuned monitor, Short battery life, Bad camera, A bigger battery and a more accurately tuned display.
Conclusion: The Acer Liquid S1 is quite a handful but it has an excellent HD screen and a pretty good camera too. With the latest flavour of Android and plenty of free online storage available via AcerCloud, it offers a credible alternative to the big names.
Pros: Large screen, decent camera, good battery life, sensible price
Excerpt: The Acer Liquid S1 looks to challenge the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 , which has a 5.35in display, with its even larger 5.7in HD touchscreen. We got some time with the device to see how a phone of this size fares in the hand.
Summary: The Acer Liquid S1 is a great big phone with a reasonable spec and a reasonable price. Especially for the Dual SIM version (about £269). You get a lot of features that all work well. If you travel a lot and like the idea of a huge oversized phone then this might be the one for you.
Pros: Being large means everything is clear and easy to access, DTS Audio Enhancement, Dual SIM model available, MicroSD slot, A few nice software additions
Cons: Being large means that one handed operation is virtually impossible, Plasticy feel, Mushy buttons, No notification light, GPS doesn’t work thanks to MediaTek, Viewing angles of the screen, The screen is a fingerprint magnet
Conclusion: If you have wanted to dip your toe in the phablet waters before now, but have found the options available just that bit too rich the compromises the Acer S1 has made to reach its £200 price point are small enough that it becomes worth a look.
