Sophisticated Dual-SIM-function with a reliable middle-class smartphone.

Low cost, impressive features
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 th... Full review
Has a decent spec list, just don't try and make a call
After spending a lot of time with the Acer Liquid E3, there is no doubt that this handset has been aimed at younger students, those that are in high school rather than at University. The price tag screams of a handset that you won't mind if it gets bashed up on the playground, and the forward facing flash is aimed very heavily at the selfie loving youngsters.

Reasonably priced phone has outstanding features but disappoints
The Acer Liquid E3 is a tough phone to rate because it has some really outstanding features like the camera options, the display and the front-facing speakers, but suffers from a slow processor, a design that won't appeal to everyone, old software and a lack of storage space or 4G.

We'd recommend carefully considering options like the Motorola Moto G and Sony Xperia M2 b... Full review
Good cost-benefit ratio
A key feature is definitively the Dual-SIM function. Unfortunately, there is no LTE. The large 4.7-inch HD screen can score in terms of resolution and brightness. On the other hand, system performance is rather decent, but sufficient for everyday use. With the camera it is possible to shoot nice pictures. A problem might be the non-exchangeable 2000 mAh battery.
All in all, the current E-model of Acer is a good middle class device. If one can live with the mentioned disadvantages, the smartphone has a lot to offer and is worth the money.
When buying the device, one sho... Full review
