Acer has a range of new Android phones, which boast high-resolution front-facing cameras -- and tiny price tags.
Acer brings its ultralight 5-inch LTE Liquid Jade Z and Liquid Z410 smartphones stateside.
The Acer Tempo M900 smart phone offers a good range of features and is a decent-enough performer. But its ugly, dated design falls far short of that of competitors, like HTC's Touch Pro2, and its build quality doesn't inspire confidence either
Acer's first attempt at an Android handset, the Liquid is a good smart phone, thanks to its large screen and great connectivity. Its plasticky case keeps it from being truly beautiful, but, with its touch-sensitive buttons and sleek shape, it's no beast either. Acer's additions to Android are useful, if not particularly inspiring, and the operating system has more than enough going for it to make this smart phone craveable
Black is white and up is down in the Acer Liquid Metal's topsy-turvy custom user interface. Happily, you can turn it off, resulting in a perfectly passable Android 2.2 smart phone.
The Liquid E is not a bad Android phone, but it's far from being a great one, and in today's hectic market you really need to stand out from the pack to survive.
The Acer beTouch E400 is by no means a bad Android smart phone, but its touchscreen and build quality can't match those of rivals like the Samsung Galaxy Portal and HTC Wildfire
The Stream is Acer's best Android smart phone yet, but its customised user interface, HDMI port and video-recording capability aren't quite as good as we'd hoped they'd be
As a swansong for Microsoft's Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system, the Acer neoTouch P300 isn't particularly impressive, despite its robust construction and eminently useable slide-out keyboard
A novel take on the Android OS, the Acer beTouch E130 is a worthy BlackBerry or Nokia E-series alternative.
The beTouch E101 certainly has an attractive price tag, but, in an effort to keep the cost down, Acer has thrown the baby out with the bath water. The sad fact is that its poor screen and lack of both Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity make it difficult to recommend this handset
The Android-based Acer Iconia Smart is a giant of a phone, with a 4.8-inch screen that sports a 21:9 aspect ratio. Turn the phone on its side and you can enjoy cinematic videos and wide-screen Web browsing.
Although the Acer beTouch E210's full Qwerty keyboard makes typing a pleasure, an outdated version of Android, a poor screen and a dismal camera make this a choice for serious button lovers only.
The Acer beTouch E110 is far from unusable, but a higher-resolution screen and access to the Android app store are sorely lacking. Also unremarkable in terms of appearance, there are much better phones available at a similar price
Considering its low price, the Acer beTouch E200 feels relatively speedy, and solidly built. But, due to its low-resolution touchscreen and lack of Wi-Fi, we'd suggest that, if you're in the market for a budget smart phone, you consider other low-cost handsets, such as the HTC Tattoo, before splashing out
The Acer neoTouch P400 is let down by a frustrating resistive touchscreen and sluggish performance, which is a shame because its build quality is high. An operating system just months from being made obsolete by Windows Phone 7 is the nail in the coffin
Depending on your opinion of the F1 racing squad, the Acer Liquid E Ferrari Special Edition will either strike you as tasteless or the most gorgeous phone imaginable. Beyond the surface, it retains the same positives and negatives of the Liquid E, which has very recently been outclassed by Android newcomers.
One of Acer's first smart phones, the Tempo X960 isn't going to strike fear into the hearts of its touchscreen competitors. A dated user interface does a poor job of covering Windows Mobile 6.1's flaws, and an unresponsive touchscreen and sluggish performance also hurt. We'll hang tight for Acer's next attempt
