Acer A1 Liquid Smartphone Essentials ReviewREVIEW Phones 22nd February 2010 Document (5).pdf (1582KB)
"Great phone in general. Superb screen, very responsive. Two things to note however are that many people (including myself) have reported that this handset cannot access copy-protected applications on the Android market and that Acer support is completely useless and requires calling a 60p/min premium rate number."
"The Acer liquid is amazing! The pictures don't do it justice. When side by side with the iPhone, it looks fantastic and the contrasting black screen with white case is stunning! While it is made from plastic, the build quality is good and the screen is glass! On the hardware side, the snapdragon processor makes this one of the fastest phones in existence and everything performs well. Given the price, this phone is a must have for smartphone users!"
"The Acer Liquid A1 is by far one of the best phones I have ever had the pleasure to use. I have purchased it and am more than happy. I like the HTC Hero but hated the shape of the phone and the size of the screen. This however, is a good design, lightweight, well made and the sound quality for calls is excellent both ends and also the loud speaker is more than adequate. I recommend this phone without a doubt and it is excellent value for money. I can also recommend Clove. Thank you clove for both your advice and prompt excellent service."
"Got mine this morning and so far i really like it. The Acer Liquid is very easy to use and beats my Xperia hands down Thank you to Clove for fabulous service..."
