Nice screen, brisk OS and a lightweight tablet

A fairly average contender within the 7″ tablet category this. There were a few too many creaks from the chassis and it twisted all too easily – making the screen produce some strange colours. My main gripes are the sheer amount of apps pre-installed. Sure, I can understand one or two apps, but the entire Amazon suite? This isn’t a Kindle, why is it all here? And why do I need all the other additions too?

It delivered all the apps and widgets fairly trouble-free without any real hint of a struggle, despite only having 1GB of RAM. The on-screen keyboard was responsive and it was light enough to hold in one hand.

As for the cameras, they were really just for show and you wouldn’t want to use them in anger.

It left me with a feeling that this is a tablet within a low price-range that’ll get bought for kids. Those kids will just throw it around and play Angry Birds on it. They’re not going to use the many, many Acer apps or the many, many Amazon apps or the many, many other apps – so why are they really there?

As long as you never lose sight of what the Acer Liquid M220 is supposed to be – an affordable, entry-level smartphone – you’ll likely be satisfied with it. For what it is, Acer’s first US smartphone offering impresses. It has great battery life and offers all of the same functionality of other Windows Phone 8.1 devices (whether or not this appeals to you is another issue all together), just for a much lower price point.

Sure, the lowered cost means modest specs and a hit to its display quality, but what the Liquid M220 lacks in flair it makes up for in utility. If you’re considering the purchase of the Acer Liquid M220 and come into it with the right expectations, then you won’t be disappointed.

The Acer Iconia Tab 8 surprised us, in a good way. It proved to be a decent, mid-range tablet that would make a great gift for kids or those that don’t need the latest and greatest. With smooth performance, a reasonable price and okay hardware, the Acer Iconia Tab 8 will feel right at home and will make a great last-minute Father’s Day gift. Those looking for newer features, faster performance and overall more in a tablet, however, are going to want to look elsewhere.

Experience shows that expectations have to be reduced slightly in relatively inexpensive tablets. Acer's Iconia One 8 is no exception and has only a 720p screen, a not entirely stable plastic casing with some sharp edges, and slightly too quiet speakers. The variety of adware also mars the impression the same as the clear performance loss after a prolonged load for which we deducted a point in the rating.

Acer particularly emphasizes the touchscreen, which is in fact quite suitable for sketching because it implements inputs very accurately. The low black level and a rather color accurate image reproduction are also assets of the screen. In addition, the storage can be expanded and the buyer gets a good battery life.

If you're in the market for a budget tablet you can share with children, I'm sorry to say it, but Acer has missed the mark with the Iconia One 7. Yes, the processor is speedy, but almost everything else I can think to say about the tablet is no better than average.

While Acer has a reputation for providing cheap and cheerful electronics, they usually feel like they'll last significantly longer than the One 7 seems likely to. I can only really recommend it for those looking something cheap to tide them over until they can afford a better tablet, or for those on a very strict budget – and even then, there are still better options around.

When you're looking at a phone which costs just over £100, you have to be realistic about its shortcomings. The Liquid E3 has many –– low internal memory, skittish performance under pressure and no foreseeable upgrade path to Android Lollipop being just three –– but the positives arguably outweigh the negatives. The screen is great, the camera way above average for this price range and the stereo speakers make it an appealing media device. Add in decent battery life, expandable storage and an attractive design, and you have a phone which feels more expensive than its £120 price tag might suggest.

Finding a spot in the crowded midrange is no walk in the park, and the Acer Liquid Jade S couldn't quiet convince us that it has what it takes. It started off great, impressing us with its design, UI and performance, but the phone gets three strikes in very important areas - display, battery, and camera. Unless there's a price cut in its near future, we don't think it can get away with that.

This is a hard one really as I want to like this phone but there are a few things here that just put me off. I cannot quite place my finger on it. I do like the build quality although it is plastic it feels nice and solid and the plastic has no rough edges etc. The screen is very bright even at its lowest settings meaning that in direct sunlight I have still been able to see things. Delving deeper into the design is where things start to unravel with the wierd placement od the sleep lock button and the 2nd mic position start to see bigger issues. I am not sure I’d the phone has been designed for a left handed user but the phone just feels awkward in the right hand you invariably end up activating the volume button with the palm of your hand.

I liked the camera apart from the finikity UI and its a big improvment over the pure Android UI. I do wish that I could remove some of the modes on the camera. Thereby getting rid of the cluttered look, however as you can see the camera is not too shabby.

If you are want a high end mid tier phone this defiantly one to consider, however if you want high end then you need to look elsewhere.

That last sentence sums up the Acer Liquid Jade. It’s the company’s best effort yet, but despite offering equal or even better specs on paper, it just cannot compete with the likes of the evergreen Motorola Moto G. Sure, you could buy it, and you might be satisfied with it, but there’s no reason to do so when similarly priced alternatives are better. Now that the big boys have muscled in on the lowend scene, Acer needs to rethink its strategy.

A decent handset from a smaller brand, the Liquid Jade has all the components in place to be a much better handset than it actually is. What holds it back is Acer’s lack of polish when compared to bigger brands like Motorola. The end result is a handset that you could settle for, but probably shouldn’t.

Picked up this phone @ Staples, unlocked, on sale for $100. Loved it from the get go. One of the major reasons? Call me crazy but I like the older version of Android it runs. Android, like iOS, has become increasingly tricked out, to little or no advantage. As well as glaring, headache inducing white, & unimaginatively flat, & uninteresting. Acer has added a couple of useful apps and a pinch of this and that in the settings, but overall the phone runs a pretty pure, tasty little Jelly Bean. Design wise the phone is actually quite a pleasure to hold. It somehow suits the older OS, as well, as if the designers understood & wanted to give it an aspect of inner & outer confluence. Yea. The phone flunks out occasionally when you put too much stuff at once onto its slender half gig shoulders. But hey. Go easy! And no, it doesn't have the greatest camera, but I've used worse. It does the trick. The phone has LTE, manages to run a good long time on a charge, and has good sound quality both in calls & for media. I prefer an underdog like this to the usual almighty prom kings that everyone admires. Glad I bought it.

Camera below average, if you like to take a lot of pics with your phone - it may not fit your expectation. Display is just OK . Everything else is pretty standard. I got mine for 40$ (on sale) , for what I paid I am pretty happy.

I've tried this smartphone and love its design. The phone also feels nice to hold with its smooth curves, thin design and 5-inches screen. The touch screen is very fluid and fast. It has 13MP camera which gives excellent snaps. The Magic Bright Mode in its camera can create a good photo and blur effect in low light. The camera also produces a good video at the noon and night. The videos run very smooth and without lag. I usually watch it on YouTube with Wi-Fi connection. From the overall appearance and specifications are carried, the presence of Liquid Jade obviously intended for those who want to look cool at the same time without having to spend a sophisticated deep. Fashionable design and performance is quite good.

I gave it 10/10 because it does everything mentioned on the specs. This is not a high end phone with HD videos and amazing camera. However you can use a multitude of features even if the Android system is JellyBean... The Internet works very well, multimedia and social media apps are running smooth and offer a nice experience, we can talk on Skype with no problems whatsoever, we can use FTP to administer and adjust things on our serve while on the go.... it's easy, fast, ergonomic and low cost. For under $200 you can't expect much but the stylish design, the functionality and the options you have on this phone makes it perfect for day to day use. Pair this with a no contract, no expiration prepaid SIM and you have a quick great device to stay in touch with people, navigate the Internet, watch movies online, use social media and more.

Didn't realise soon enough that this phone had so many problems, now i'm stuck with it for a couple years. Already waiting for a replacement but would rather get a different phone alltogether. Phone is sleek and looks great but keeps power off and rebooting clearing all entered data. what a pain.
