Acer's Liquid E2 delivers ugly, but affordable quad-core Android

If you can overlook mismatched colors, wonky design, and a mediocre camera, the unlocked Liquid E2 brings quad-core Android Jelly Bean smarts for an affordable price.

The affordable Acer Liquid E2 runs Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, has a vibrant 4.5-inch screen, and a quad-core motor under its hood.

There are some major problems, though, that make this handset a more questionable deal than it would originally seem, like its wonky design and mediocre shooter.

The global device won't be coming to U.S. shores through a carrier, but you can read all about it in CNET UK's full Acer Liquid 2 review.
