Acer Liquid S2 Review


The Liquid S2 is Acer's crown jewel in the large form-factor space, thanks to its high end hardware. Sporting a 6-inch, 1080x1920 resolution IPS screen, this giant phablet has it all: a quad-core Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM, a hearty, 3300mAh cell, and...

No frills performance ; Beautiful display ; Distinctive design ; Stock Android look and feel

Priced the same as better models out there ; Camera disappoints at several fronts ; Seriously bulky

The Acer Liquid S2 is one of those puzzling devices, when it comes to drawing the line and calling it. We'll be honest and say that we liked its character – it feels bold, and does not let its rather obscure background get in the way of aiming high. It...

Acer Liquid S2 pictures and hands on


Our first date with Acer's brand new Liquid S2 has left us impressed. The screen is sharp and the colours bright, like the company's Iconia A3 tablet, but with the 6-inch Full HD IPS display delivering more of a punch. It was comfortable to hold and...

A 6-inch Android monster with a Snapdragon 800 CPU and affordable price

Powerful CPU, Big, engaging screen, Affordable price

Not very stylish, Juddery backlight adjustment, Hardware not optimised for size

Acer Liquid S2 hands-on review


Another serious comparison that needs to be drawn with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the software that the two devices come with. While the Note 3 is packed with gimmicky features, the Acer Liquid S2 feels a lot less busy and more Android-y, which for...

The Acer Liquid S2 is a very capable phablet device that has a predictably huge full HD screen and an amazing camera. It's one that should be seriously considered if you're in the market for a phablet in 2013.

With a 13 megapixel stills camera and the ability to take 4K video, this smartphone can document your life in Ultra HD

Acer Liquid S2


A mixed performer – it will need an aggressive pricing strategy to stand out

Well-specified ; Good display ; Great video playback ; Futureproofed with 4K recording

Hardware poorly thought out ; Battery life ; Music and camera could be better

Acer’s first crack at a premium phablet comes with good intentions, delivering great specs and results in some areas but left wanting in others.

Acer Liquid S2 Review: In Depth


Acer's Full HD phablet can shoot ultra-crisp 4k video, while the colourful six-inch screen is great for enjoying media.

Ultra HD 4k video ; Vibrant Full HD screen ; Snapdragon power ; Vanilla Android

Dolby speakers still a bit ‘meh ; Size and weight makes it niche ; Lacks multitasking/creative software ; No KitKat as of yet

First revealed in Berlin last year, Acer’s six-inch Liquid S2 is one of the first handsets that can film 4k video. Along with the Full HD screen and great range of specs, it’s got everything in place to take on the big boys of the phablet world.

Acer Liquid S2 review


6in phablet's screen quality and power impresses, but running older Jelly Bean version of Android

Great screen, smooth performance, eye-catching design, up to 128GB of expandable storage, decent camera

Poor battery life, only 16GB internal storage, will be too big for some

However, we thought the phone was a little let down by its battery, and the large 6in phablet design is unlikely to be to everyone's taste - especially those with small hands.

The 6in smartphone has impressive screen quality and processing power, but is let down by its battery.

Great screen, smooth performance, eye-catching design, up to 128GB of expandable storage, decent camera

Poor battery life, only 16GB internal storage, will be too big for some, runs Google's older Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS
