Acer Liquid Z5 review


The lower end of the smartphone market is booming at the moment, with new budget phones offering decent specs for a fair price. Acer's push in this market is the Liquid Z5, a sub-£100 smartphone with a large 5-inch screen, making its rivals seem small...

Good feel in the hand, Almost stock Android, Price, SD Card slot

Only running Android 4.2, Laggy/unresponsive at times, Internal memory allocation, Camera performance, Sealed battery

Acer Liquid Z5: You get what you pay for [Review]


Acer has come up with a low-cost 5in handset in the Liquid Z5, and one with a neat chassis design, too. However, it needs some distinguishing characteristics to make it stand out, as things are competitive in every segment of the handset market these...

Acer has come up with a fairly neat design for the Liquid Z5, and one which looks good on a budget handset like this -- but there is not much else to say that is positive. The processor is slow, the screen disappointing, and the battery life a real let...
