Reviews Word on the street for the Acer Liquid E2

Depth of field was impressive in macro shots and you can see we managed to capture some outstanding macro images with this phone.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


We love the fact that there are two dedicated keys - one for still image capture and another one for videos.

Acer relies on the default video player from the Gallery application, but you can go on Google Play and download any other player like say the MX Player if you want more options for video playback.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)
The little quad-core chip inside it makes possible some very cool features like 1080p video recording and that’s quite a feat for such an affordable phone.

In reality the screen is sharp but you can definitely see the slight pixelization noticeable around the edges of icons.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)
The screen is reflective and this is something that makes it harder to read in direct sunlight, but if you avoid those reflections it is definitely legible even under the direct sunlight.

Screen: The Liquid E2 features a 4.5-inch qHD IPS display.

Located in the back, the 8-megapixel auto-focus camera with a single LED flash is quick and feature-rich.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)
The Acer Liquid E2 Duo on its part has a spacious, but not too large 4.5-inch display with 540 x 960 pixel resolution, a surprisingly good 8-megapixel camera and dual-SIM card support.

Camera: The Acer Liquid E2 features a camera that surprised us with the quality of captured images.

It is the first phone we get to review with MediaTek’s awesome 1.2GHz quad-core MT6589 and it comes with 1GB RAM and a PowerVR SGX544 graphical chip.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)
On one hand is the snappy processor, brilliant camera and the nice and up-to-date nearly stock Android 4.2.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)
The Liquid E2 is the first device to come in our hands featuring a quad-core chip from MediaTek that is extremely affordable yet very powerful.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)


It is the MediaTek MT6589, a chip that is now used in virtually every Android flagship from China, making the existence of $200 5-inch 1080p phones possible.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)
Time lapse support is also built-in the camera app, as well as the videopic option (that only grabs a 1088 x 1920 still of the video, not a full resolution capture).
