The Acer Liquid Z5 is a low-cost phone with a big screen

Phones
Hi, guys. This is Brian Bennett at CNET.com and we are at CES 2014 taking a first look at one of the new phones that was just announced at the show. It's the Acer Liquid Z5 Smartphone. And, you know, this device it looks pretty nice. It has a, you know, very sleek looks a uni-body poly-carbonate design, a big 5-inch screen and it's running Android 4.2.2. Now the Acer Liquid Z5 is very affordable despite its very classy good looks. On the back here you could see it has a 5-megapixel camera as well as this button, which is a dual-function button that allows you to, you know, turn the phone on just like tapping it once jumps straight to the home screen, and you can also, you know, have contextual control within the app. So you can say, okay I wanna, you know, turn the volume up or down or pause, click paused tracks and do, you know, certain apps specific controls within whatever app you're using. Now, if you look at the screen you can probably tell it's not as high-res as something you'd like to see. Actually, it's an 840x320 resolution display, 5 inches, and it has a special filter in here that it supposed to make it viewable from, you know, different angles but it's still not as high-end as some of the OLED displays or LCD displays you're gonna see and extremely expensive phones. But this device is actually very inexpensive. It supposed to cost 169 Euros and it's gonna be available probably by the spring time and probably in Europe and Asia, so sorry American Acer fans, the Acer Liquid Z5 is not going to come to the US, it's only gonna be available in Europe and Asia. I'm Brian Bennett and this is been a first look at the Acer Liquid Z5.
