Excerpt: When Acer launched its Liquid line months ago the first model was only available in white. Today, the Liquid can be had with a black body though the phone's specifications haven't changed at all.
Conclusion: The Acer Liquid is a good phone and it's obvious that a lot of love has gone into making it. However we felt that it was really let down by three major things: the lack of a trackball or trackpad, the unresponsiveness of the four menu keys and the camera shutter key. It's a shame as the Liquid is fast and you can have a lot of fun with the apps from the Android Market but we'd be unlikely to choose this over an HTC Desire.
Excerpt: Acer may be a beginner in the handset market, but it has still managed to design a winner with the Liquid. The Acer Liquid is a large phone with a number of features. Acer will continue to learn from their forays into the mobile phone market, however...
Acer Liquid - Android-powered multimedia phone with 5MP camera for Rs. 24,900
20 April 2010
Summary: The Liquid, like many other devices of its time faces an identity crisis � good hardware/could-be-better platform and the resulting mediocrity. Priced at Rs. 24,900, it must be said, the Liquid needs a few firmware upgrades to niggle out some of the unexpected quirks we ran into � something in stark divergence to the polished image Acer would obviously wish it projected. It�s a bit pricey to merit approval anyways.
Pros: Good screen, crisp colours despite the 65K-colour limitation imposed by Android 1.5, Sharp looks, built reasonably well
Cons: Platform has a number of minor, but noticeable issues, Camera does not live up to the 5-megapixel moniker advertised. No flash is a big minus
Conclusion: The Acer Liquid A1 is a solid high end Android smartphone. The no-contract price isn't bad, in fact it's less expensive than the Nexus One. We like the sharp and bright high resolution display, the overall design and fast CPU. We'd like to see a newer version of the Android OS, but that's a problem with many recent Android smartphones-- they just don't ship with the latest OS. Since the Liquid lacks heavy manufacturer software customizations vs.
Pros: High res display, fast CPU, 3G HSPDA on AT&T's 1900MHz band.
Cons: Currently runs on the older Android 1.6 OS, battery life is so-so.
Excerpt: Acer’s latest is also their very first Android powered handset, the Liquid. The Liquid is Acer’s attempt at capturing today’s mobile audiences with a user friendly design concept and of course we can’t forget the open source operating system. But even if it looks good and uses a generally competent UI does it deliver on all fronts? That’s what I’m here to tell you. Take a closer look.
Excerpt: Acer may not be making a big song and dance about the couple of new devices that it has on show in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress 2012, but it certainly has a duo that are making a few ripples among the industry types at the show. Pocket-lint has already told you how we were blown away by the Acer CloudMobile after stumbling across it at the Android booth, but it's the second of the Ice Cream Sandwich-running pair - the Acer Liquid Glow - that will probably end up...
