Conclusion: The Acer Liquid S2 is one of those puzzling devices, when it comes to drawing the line and calling it. We'll be honest and say that we liked its character – it feels bold, and does not let its rather obscure background get in the way of aiming high.
Pros: No frills performance, Beautiful display, Distinctive design, Stock Android look and feel
Cons: Priced the same as better models out there, Camera disappoints at several fronts, Seriously bulky

Excerpt: First revealed in Berlin last year, Acer’s six-inch Liquid S2 is one of the first handsets that can film 4k video. Along with the Full HD screen and great range of specs, it’s got everything in place to take on the big boys of the phablet world.
Pros: Ultra HD 4k video, Vibrant Full HD screen, Snapdragon power, Vanilla Android

Excerpt: PC MAKER Acer isn't a big name in smartphones, with the firm struggling to gain much traction due to competition from Samsung, Sony and HTC, which continue to dominate the Android smartphone market.
Excerpt: Our first date with Acer's brand new Liquid S2 has left us impressed. The screen is sharp and the colours bright, like the company's Iconia A3 tablet, but with the 6-inch Full HD IPS display delivering more of a punch. It was comfortable to hold and sat well in the palm of our hands.
Summary: Das neue Android-Flaggschiff von Acer glänzt mit starker Hardware und 4K-Video, ist aber auch buchstäblich ein Schwergewicht. Acer ist zwar nicht neu am Smartphone-Markt, von der dominanten Stellung in anderen Sektoren ist der Konzern bislang jedoch weit entfernt.
Pros: Toller Bildschirm, Eingabestift, Hohe Geschwindigkeit, guter Akku
