Acer Liquid Z3


This dual-SIM Android phone costs under £100 and the performance shows it.

Sub-£100 price tag, User friendly Quick Mode, Dual SIM capabilities

Poor 3.5-inch screen, Lifeless 3-megapixel camera, Cheap feeling design

Acer Liquid Z3 Duo – Review


A useful little Dual SIM phone at great price. But the hardware is compromised just a little bit too much.

Other notable stuff Overall the phone has a purpose, in fact it has two purposes. Scratch that it has three. Those three things are for kids, for the elderly or for budget travellers. But even for those three types of user there will be compromises....

Acer Liquid Z3 Duo - Review


Small things have a place in life, small phones definitely do too. Not everyone wants a huge device and not everyone wants a super complicated device covered in widgets and shortcuts.

Acer Liquid Z3 Duo – Initial Impressions


The Acer Liquid Z3 could be called the "Liquid E2 Duo Mini" but not every manufacturer has to follow the Samsung rules. The Acer Liquid Z3 is a budget sub £100 dual core device and I've got one for the next few weeks. So to start off proceedings here...

My initial conclusion is that the Acer Liquid Z3 could be a great little phone, for someone wanting their first Android phone, as a gift to an elderly relative or to someone who just can’t cope with the normal Android environment or just someone who...

Review Acer Liquid Z3 Duo Smartphone


Cheap. A 3.5-inch screen, 4 GB memory and a dual-core CPU - this small entry-level smartphone from Acer is neither a performance nor connectivity powerhouse, but it does offer a full-blown Android phone for less than 100 Euros (~$137). Is this...

Good battery life; Dual SIM; Storage can be extended; Small and compact; Worth the price; Bright display which offers strong contrast

yet has a low resolution.; Small memory.; Slow performance.; Modest camera

The competitors include: Nokia Lumia 520, Huawei Ascend Y300, Sony Xperia J and ZTE Blade III.

Acer Liquid Z3 Review


Smartphones on the cheap have ceased to be a novelty, though the traditional concerns are still present: does an affordable price tag spell low quality? Not necessarily it would appear, and the pocket-friendly 3.5-inch Acer Liquid Z3 is a prime...

High build quality ; Great price-to-performance ratio ; Near-stock Android experience ; Battery longevity

Low-resolution display ; Generic camera ; Browsing experience is average at best

It may feel like we're repeating ourselves, but we made every effort to look at the Acer Liquid Z3 in perspective. The $130 odd price tag has definitely had a profound effect on how we look at the Z3, and we were definitely left impressed with the...

Acer Liquid Z3s Entry-Level (Android) Smartphone Review


In this brown box lies an entry level Android phone that's of superb value for money. It impressed me right from the start as the PR agency told me about the price and I'm sure this fits the bill for many out there who's looking to move on to using...

Acer Liquid Z3 Quick Review


To cut it short, the Acer Liquid Z3 could have and would have been an amazing phone if it was released probably a year ago. It offers a great balance of things from the vibrant display, the good camera & the solid build quality along with the flip...
