Acer has on the MWC 2014 introduced two new dual SIM smartphone: The Acer Liquid E3 and the Acer Liquid Z4. Thus the Taiwanese company renewed its already fairly extensive dual SIM range with two models.
In this case, the Z4 is intended rather for beginners, the E3, however, is located at the upper end of the middle class class and the successor to the Acer Liquid E2 (Test) thought.
Cheap Liquid Z4, average rate for the Liquid E3
The Liquid Z4 is because the much more favorable of the two and is to appear for € 119 MSRP commercially. The Liquid E3 is clearly confident positioned and costs the manufacturer € 249.
Despite many differences: The operating system is in two dual SIM phones, the Android version 4.2.2. However, an update to Android 4.4 KitKat is announced – which we hear for the first time in a dual-SIM model. However, it will take until fall, until the update will be available.
Liquid E3: Solid and valent housing
Yes, both models are rather low with the medium price, but one or the other fancy feature is on board. . So at E3 as a unibody enclosure is installed, which makes a very stable first impression
Whether it is because of this stability that it brings relatively heavy 135g on the scales, is still unclear – but for a 4.7-inch model is the certainly not a drama. +++ update: Meanwhile, Acer has the name of E3 for Germany by an additional “Plus” extended because it receives 1 GB more memory. Current information now for Acer Liquid E3 Plus (Test) +++
It’s getting even accommodate the trend, on the back below the camera a button or sensor for other mobile functions. Also Acer uses this still relatively new idea: camera, standby and “Lift handset” – which can simple push on the back button.
In addition, an individual assignment of the back button is possible to call a specific apps. But better as implemented by Acer, not incorporated as. We are excited to see how it in everyday life test of E3 and Z4 works ultimately.
