Acer Liquid Z4 review


The E3 gets a smaller sibling

Compact design ; Reasonable camera ; Rear button will appease some

Poor screen ; Keyboard cramp

It's not going to win any spec battles, but the Z4 could prove to be pretty popular with its low price point. And with screen sizes getting bigger and bigger, it's interesting to see Acer putting out something that goes against the tide.

Acer Liquid Z4 hands-on review


The Liquid Z4 is a compact smartphone made with the pocket in mind, sporting a 4in display with a pretty dismal resolution of 800 by 480. We found the quality of the display to be quite poor, and the colours seemed a little dull. It's not uncommon for...

Overall, for such a small price-tag, the Liquid Z4 is a good little smartphone for carrying out basic tasks such as emails, social networking or browsing the web. It's a good little snapper, too, so those who enjoy taking photos to share on Instagram...

Hands-on at MWC 2014: A cheap and cheerful budget Android phone

Acer has improved the looks of its budget Android phones a bit. The Liquid Z4 isn't a bad-looking phone, and the rear custom button is a feature you don't see often. However, the limited screen quality, low RAM and missing front camera might be hard to...

Acer Liquid Z4 review


HANDS ON REVIEW: Acer is looking to take on the might of the Moto G with its budget Liquid Z4 smartphone, which matches it in some areas but trounces it in the most important one: price

It might have a smaller screen than the Moto G, but the Liquid Z4 otherwise feels very similar. The biggest difference is price; Acer expects the L4 to cost €99 when it goes on sale in April across Europe. That could equate to £80 here in the UK...

Acer Liquid Z4 Duo Smartphone Review


Z3 on the rack. Acer has refreshed its entry-level devices and placed a dual-SIM, four-inch smartphone between its Z3 Duo and Z5. Their specs are very similar. The most interesting innovation is surely the Custom Profiles, which make the smartphone...

Rear-sided function button, Decent speakers, Good build, Affordable, Dual-SIM, Expandable storage, The Custom Profiles could really make use easier for newcomers. Besides that, the Z4 features a good build, and is agreeably small

Humming power supply, Older Android version, Moderate performance, Little working memory, More working memory, and a more up-to-date Android version would have been good for the smartphone
