Acer Liquid Metal


Acer's Liquid Metal has a good screen and fast processor, but how does it stack up against the Android smartphone competition?

Despite the thick bezel making it look small, the screen actually measures 3.6 inches across the diagonal and its resolution is very good at 840 x 480 pixels, so text in the web browser looks very sharp even when zoomed out a bit and pictures and icons...

Acer Liquid Metal


The Acer Liquid Metal continues the work of the Acer Liquid and the Acer Stream that we've seen previously. Both handsets have impressed, but lacked the overall wow factor that strong rivals from HTC or Samsung have. With the Liquid Metal, have Acer...

It’s distinctive, Dobly Mobile sounds great, doesn’t do anything drastically wrong

Acer’s custom UI is radically and might deter some, poor camera performance, video format support basic, design not cohesive, screen scratches easily

So overall the Acer Liquid Metal is a good device. We’re impressed with the level of customisation that Acer have undertaken - it makes it distinctive with the added addition that if you want to revert back to standard Android you can in a flash.

Acer Liquid Metal review


Acer's follow up to the Stream brings Android 2.2, but dials back the specs slightly.

Great screen ; Good sound output thanks to Dolby Mobile ; Quality web browsing ; Good battery life

Annoying curved backplate ; Disappointing camera ; Flash not pre-installed ; Breeze user interface fiddly ; SocialJogger Twitter and Facebook app fails to hit the spot

Acer has stuck with the same UI as the Acer Stream for the new Acer Liquid Metal, and if you hated it before, you'll probably still hate it. But the Liquid Metal costs £299 SIM free, while the Stream costs £329 as we write.

Acer Liquid Metal review


The Acer Liquid Metal is a good-looking Google Android 2.2 'Froyo' handset. It features a curved design and a metal accent on the back but, oddly, has a plastic backplate. It's chunkier than some smartphones at 14mm thick and weighs a middling 135g but...

Solid. The Acer Liquid Metal Android smartphone looks good and fits neatly in the hand, and it was a pleasure surfing the web.

Acer Liquid Metal Review


The Acer Liquid Metal has been out for a few months now, at the time of writing you could get one for £263 which puts it the same sort of price bracket as the Motorola Defy and the Samsung Galaxy Ace. So first of all we shall have a look at some...

The Acer Liquid Metal is a great device for the money. Compared to the Motorola and Galaxy Ace it would be difficult which to choose. The Acer is easily rootable, has a fairly active community creating roms for it. An official Gingerbread rom was...

Acer is not a company that many would expect to be making phones but they have and their latest incarnation is the subject of this review. The Liquid Metal is a mid-range device that has been created to conquer the demographic who doesn?t...

Acer - Liquid Metal


The Liquid Metal is the latest in what has become a long line of Android-based smartphones from Acer. It isn't quite the all-singing, all-dancing handset that the Acer Stream is. Instead, it occupies the upper-middle range ...

Acer has done well with the Liquid Metal. The somewhat quirky Android skin won't appeal to everyone and more internal storage would have been nice, but there are some neat touches which help this smartphone stand out from the crowd.

Last year, we broke the news that the Acer Liquid Metal was coming to the UK. You can now pick one up, but should you? We've been putting it through its paces to find out: get the full prognosis here in our Acer Liquid Metal review.

Acer Liquid Metal review


Acer's latest Android 2.2 smartphone is only just making its way to the shops. Although very reasonably priced, is it worth buying over other smartphones? Read our review to find out.

The Acer Liquid Metal runs Android 2.2 and on top of that sits Acer’s Breeze skin. This delivers a rather different take both on accessing widgets and how a home screen is structured. You'll either love it or hate it. You can drop it and use vanilla...

Acer Liquid Metal Review


This is Acer's best handset so far, and has the benefits of the Froyo OS as well as Acer's own UI. Plus it's a decent price

Social Jogger offers a clever way to keep up to date with your social networks.

There is no facility for dragging and dropping icons onto home screens, which might put off some Android fans.

The Liquid Metal is definitely the best handset from Acer so far, but it does have a lot of heavyweight competition - in the shape of HTC, Samsung and Apple phones. While they all produce better-equipped devices, Acer has a few tricks of its own up its...
