Acer Liquid Jade review: Functional but not fantastic


The sub-£250 end of the smartphone market is a like a big apple pie that every manufacturer wants a slice of. But you can only carve that pie up so many ways. The Acer Liquid Jade is the best looking smartphone to come from the company so far. The...

Lovely slim and light design, big screen, great camera, good interface

Average battery life, sluggish performance, over £200, plasticky feel

The Acer Liquid Jade is the best looking smartphone to come from the company so far. The design is lightweight and slim, while offering a display that might not sport the highest of resolutions, but at its large 5-inch scale that makes light work of...

Acer Liquid Jade review


Acer's best phone yet, at a mid-range price point

A thin and light design ; Excellent CPU saver mode ; Capable and versatile camera

A stack of own-brand apps ; Average performance ; Limited internal storage

The Liquid Jade is the best phone yet from Acer, with a capable camera and a decent design, but it doesn't really offer enough to be able to rise above the slew of phones already at this mid-range price point.

Acer Liquid Jade


Acer is better known for its computing hardware, but the Liquid Jade is nonetheless a formidable entry to the mid-range smartphone market.

Impressive camera ; Dual-sim ; Respectable battery life

Plastic body feels cheap ; No 4G ; Poor value at R.R.P

Forget Android phones and iPhones. Would you consider buying a Ubuntu phone?

Acer Liquid Jade review


Acer is just one of many PC makers trying to crack the smartphone market. It's latest effort is the Liquid Jade and it looks rather good. But can it impress in all the other ways necessary to be worth your money? Read our full Acer Liquid Jade review....

The Acer Liquid Jade might looks and feel quite premium but at the end of the day it's a let-down in terms of performance. It might be one of the best phones Acer has produced but it ultimately outpaced by some even cheaper phones – namely the Motorola...

Acer Liquid Jade hands-on review


At its New York launch event in April, Acer announced the Liquid Jade smartphone along with the Liquid Leap wearable. We've got some proper hands-on time with the device at the firm's 2014 Christmas in July showcase in London, so read our Acer Liquid...

The Acer Liquid Jade is cheap but doesn't feel like it. Specs are mostly unexcited but the 13Mp camera has potential. Watch out for a full review soon of what looks like Acer's best smartphone.

Acer Liquid Jade Review: In Depth


We review the Acer Liquid Jade, a mid-range mobile with a sleek and surprisingly slim, lightweight design, but regrettably not much in the tank.Acer Liquid Jade design: Glossed overWhen we first picked…

Slim and light ; Attractive UI ; Crisp and colourful screen

Occasionally chuggy performance ; Mediocre battery life

Acer Liquid Jade Smartphone Review


Super light.

13MP camera doesn’t deliver.

Acer haven’t made an awful phone with the Liquid Jade, it’s just not up to the same standard as other similarly-priced phones in the market. Right now the second-gen Moto G seems your best bet for £150.

Acer Liquid Jade


Aimed at the midrange space, the Acer Liquid Jade is a sleek 5” smartphone, coming in at R4 200. We spent some quality time with it.

Nice looks, 13 MP camera, dual SIM

A bit pricey, battery life could have been better, accuracy of GPS not the best, front camera lack lustre
