Acer Liquid Metal review
Acer's latest Android 2.2 smartphone is only just making its way to the shops. Although very reasonably priced, is it worth buying over other smartphones? Read our review to find out.
Battery life is supplied by a 1500mAh battery and if you are a relatively frugal user you might get a day and a half from it between charges. But realistically, as with most smartphones, you'll need to charge it daily.
The Acer Liquid Metal is pretty well-featured considering its price. The 800MHz processor isn't as zippy as 1GHz alternatives, but with 2GB of storage provided in a microSD card, a soft case and a screen protector included in the package as well it's still good value.
The Acer Liquid Metal runs Android 2.2 and on top of that sits Acer’s Breeze skin. This delivers a rather different take both on accessing widgets and how a home screen is structured. You'll either love it or hate it. You can drop it and use vanilla Android if you’d prefer, though.
The screen is vibrant and sharp, and although the processor isn't the fastest available it's fast enough. Plus, the price is rather lower than other leading edge Android smartphones.
