Acer Liquid Jade Z review

 

Acer's Liquid Jade Z oscillates between being wieldy and cheap.

The Liquid Jade Z is an odd device, in many ways. It doesn’t have a distinct look, yet it feels so light to hold that it oscillates between being wieldy and cheap. Plastic bodies that are obvious tend to evoke that feeling more now than ever, in my...

Acer Liquid Jade Z (Unlocked)

 

The unlocked Acer Liquid Jade Z is an affordable compact smartphone, but there are more attractive alternatives at the same price point.

Good size for one-handed use. Crisp display. Solid front-facing camera.

Poor rear camera performance. Bloatware-heavy. Unattractive UI layer. Poor call quality and noise cancellation.

Software and Conclusions The Jade Z runs the outdated Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS with a heavy layer of Liquid UI caked on top. There's a proliferation of Acer bloatware that duplicates the functionality of stock Google apps, like abDocs, abdMusic,...

Acer Liquid Jade Z Smartphone Review

 

Liquid Jade. Acer's Liquid Jade Z is a very lightweight dual-SIM smartphone with many curves. This report reveals whether the device is convincing overall.

Light and slim casing, Relatively stiff, Dual-SIM support, Expandable storage, Decent camera equipment, High performance, Acceptable sound

Dark screen with greenish tint, Middling voice quality, Either dual-SIM or micro-SD, Slow GPS, Image sharpness not always perfect, High consumption rates

The fast SoC is certainly an asset that Acer's Liquid Jade Z can boast with. It allows smooth gaming and lag-free navigation in the operating system. The cameras in Acer's smartphone also have some advantages over the comparison devices, and can even...

Acer Liquid Jade Z Review: Welcome To America Acer

 

The Acer Liquid Jade Z is a midrange smartphone with some interesting features and great budget price. Read on for our Acer Liquid Jade Z review.

Price, decent display and specs for midrange.

With the price these are expected. Bloatware, Camera could be better, speakers are less than stellar.

Acer Liquid Jade Z Review: Blah Budget Android

 

Casting your lot with the Liquid Jade Z means accepting an awful lot of sacrifices in exchange for a $250 price tag, including compromised battery life and a 720p display.

Low price tag ; Decent camera for a budget phone ; Very light

Unacceptable battery life ; Subpar performance ; Cheap-feeling design: Low-resolution display

Acer's budget smartphone offers a decent camera for the price, but the Jade Z asks you to make too many compromises.

Acer Liquid Jade Z review

 

This budget smartphone has the right specs, but even a low price can't hide its flaws...

Decent screen ; Low price

Brash, messy sound ; Poor design ; Erratic performance

Proof that good specs and a low price don’t always add up

Acer Liquid Jade Z review

 

Why 4G, 720p, 5in for £150 doesn't always make sense

Slim and light ; Pretty good screen ; Great spec-to-cash ratio

Rubbish general performance ; Slow camera ; Suspect design flourishes ; Mediocre stamina

On paper the Jade Z is a fantastic bargain, but performance issues drag it down
