Acer Liquid S2


A mixed performer – it will need an aggressive pricing strategy to stand out

Well-specified ; Good display ; Great video playback ; Futureproofed with 4K recording

Hardware poorly thought out ; Battery life ; Music and camera could be better

Acer’s first crack at a premium phablet comes with good intentions, delivering great specs and results in some areas but left wanting in others.

Acer Liquid S2 pictures and hands on - Pocket-lint


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,

Acer Liquid S2 Review: In Depth


On paper the Acer Liquid S2 looks great, with plenty of power and the ability to shoot 4k video. Can the reality live up to the promise?First revealed in Berlin last year, Acer's six-inch Liquid S2 is…

Ultra HD 4k video ; Vibrant Full HD screen ; Snapdragon power ; Vanilla Android

Dolby speakers still a bit ‘meh’ ; Size and weight makes it niche ; Lacks multitasking/creative software ; No KitKat as of yet

Acer Liquid S2 hands-on review


Another serious comparison that needs to be drawn with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the software that the two devices come with. While the Note 3 is packed with gimmicky features, the Acer Liquid S2 feels a lot less busy and more Android-y, which for...

The Acer Liquid S2 is a very capable phablet device that has a predictably huge full HD screen and an amazing camera. It's one that should be seriously considered if you're in the market for a phablet in 2013.

Acer Liquid S2 review


6in phablet's screen quality and power impresses, but running older Jelly Bean version of Android

Great screen, smooth performance, eye-catching design, up to 128GB of expandable storage, decent camera

Poor battery life, only 16GB internal storage, will be too big for some

The Acer Liquid S2 undoubtedly is the firm's most interesting smartphone to date and manages to challenge the Galaxy Note 3 in screen quality and processing power. Although the handset ships with an older version of Google's Android mobile operating...

Acer Liquid S2 review


The 6in smartphone has impressive screen quality and processing power, but is let down by its battery.

Great screen, smooth performance, eye-catching design, up to 128GB of expandable storage, decent camera

Poor battery life, only 16GB internal storage, will be too big for some, runs Google's older Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS

Acer Liquid S2 Review


The Liquid S2 is Acer's crown jewel in the large form-factor space, thanks to its high end hardware. Sporting a 6-inch, 1080x1920 resolution IPS screen, this giant phablet has it all: a quad-core Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM, a hearty, 3300mAh cell, and...

No frills performance ; Beautiful display ; Distinctive design ; Stock Android look and feel

Priced the same as better models out there ; Camera disappoints at several fronts ; Seriously bulky

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. It...
