Acer's new Liquid E1 is proof that an Android Jelly Bean handset doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg. At an unsubsidized price of 199 euros, this midrange smartphone comes with a respectable list of components to match its modern software.

The E1 has only 4GB of internal storage, but that can be expanded to 32GB with the microSD card slot.

The E1's 4.5-inch screen has a lower than average qHD resolution (960x540 pixels).

Powered by 1GHz dual-core MediaTek processor paired with 1GB of RAM, the Liquid E1 offers a pleasantly quick if not blisteringly swift Android experience.

I also like the Liquid E1's funky set of stereo speakers plus built-in DTS sound. Whether they produce better audio than competing device and technologies, however, remains to be heard since a crowded convention hall is not an ideal location for audio testing.

The 4.5-inch screen is bright, and uses IPS (in-plane switching) technology for acceptably wide viewing angles.
