Has a good touchscreen and offers speedy performance, but it's let down by its plasticky finish

We may have been spoiled by some great-looking Android handsets from the likes of HTC and Samsung, but the Liquid E isn't in the same class when it comes to design.

We may have been spoiled by some great-looking Android handsets from the likes of HTC and Samsung, but the Liquid E isn't in the same class when it comes to design. Its styling is distinctive, thanks to its rounded edges, but the glossy white finish used on the rear and sides of the phone looks and feels plasticky. The Liquid E also feels uncomfortably wide in your hand.

We like the fact that Acer has stripped away not just the trackball but also a number of the other unnecessary buttons that you usually find on Android handsets. The company's replaced them with a row of slick and responsive touch-sensitive buttons that sit beneath the screen. We did miss the physical call buttons that you get on other handsets, though, as the lack of these controls means you have to launch the dialler app every time you want to make a call.

This is not something I would be proud to carry with me for the next several years

from Mobile Syrup

The Acer Liquid E was recently released by Rogers and it’s their newest Android-powered device. This runs OS 2.1 and I believe this will be included in the few devices that will get an upgrade to the new OS 2.2 when it’s released.

Macnn

The Liquid E is a very viable smartphone, especially when stacked against other phones with similar pricing

from Macnn

In many ways, the Liquid E design fits Acer's PC philosophy to a tee. It's all about providing the most possible performance on the inside relative to a low price. As always, there are certain tradeoffs to be made for this to happen. Here, you get a quick, modern Android phone that excels at voice calls -- a rarity in an era where the Droid X and Evo 4G treat phoning as almost incidental -- but, like an entry-level Aspire notebook, the construction isn't reassuring. You may well miss HD video recording or the more advanced optics once you're one or two years into your contract...

now i'm stuck with it

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.

It's a crappy phone

I was very disappointed by this phone. The battery life does not last longer than a day or two at best. I followed the instruction to learn more about how to use the phone and the only instruction it gave was how to use the key pad. While I am speaking on the phone, it keeps dropping signal or then...More
I was very disappointed by this phone. The battery life does not last longer than a day or two at best. I followed the instruction to learn more about how to use the phone and the only instruction it gave was how to use the key pad. While I am speaking on the phone, it keeps dropping signal or then switch to some screen where I have no idea how to get back to the screen I was on for dialing and goes automatically onto mute mode. So I can hear the other person talking, but the other person can not hear me at all. Less
