High performance access to file storage

There's 2GB of memory on board but you can boost that by 32GB with a MicroSD card, although one isn’t supplied. Even so, the Liquid E delivers where it counts, namely voice calling. The speaker is actually excellent – loud and clear without shrillness or rasping – even with the volume cranked up. Battery life wasn't bad for a smartphone with this sort of spec and I got a good day and a half of fairly heavy use out of it.

Acer Liquid E

A welcome addition to the Android pool

Verdict

With the Liquid E Acer really shows it can deliver the goods by offering a strong Android 2.1 spec with a fine multi-touch screen, browser with Wi-Fi and HSDPA 3G, social networking apps, excellent call quality and pretty good battery life. The camera is quite useable too, and although the handset is let down a little by its cheap-feeling construction, nonetheless, it offers a good range of well-implemented features at a decent price. ®
