Acer Liquid Jade Primo review: Windows Prime

01 April, 2016
Windows phone models aren't that many, which makes sense as the platforms has a market share of less than 2%. You might even say they are a select group of phones, each designed to occupy a niche of its own. So the Acer Liquid Jade Primo is a specimen of a rare breed.

Lumia by MS is a piece of junk and looks always same. the design is awful and not attractive at all. Unlike Nokia Lumia it got the beautiful design and we can recognize each model easily because the variety of design. The only I attracted to L950 because it has Iris scanner. I think it's awesome and would like to try it someday, maybe after the price is reduced to $300-350.

So - basically - bottom line - this phone is great at 4k video but average at everything else. And it's a Windows phone.
Good luck Acer. I want you to succeed but you're gonna have to do more than this.

Maybe im lucky enough to see people carrying this phone in my country... goodluck btw

Sorry editors team, if you think this phone bezel (top&bottom) is too large, how is the galaxy s7? :o

It has no OIS despite the awesome lens in front of the high resolution sensor. I'd prefer Samsung's brighter and faster lens, albeit, softer.

I don't get Microsoft. If they want Continuum, the phone OS should be an x86 OS using an x86 CPU such as Intel Atom.

I love windows phone and this could be a good switch from regular lumias with high end specs and good cameras. Acer should please not price it ridiculously high and make it available globally

"Windows black backgrounds" really? I thought this is no more the case.

AnonD-442781, 01 Apr 2016What's interesting is that its done with the SD808.All acer need to do is improve camera ui speed in still shots and this will be one of the best imagers this year. Definitely something to keep the big players on their toes.

I would rather buy Lumia 950XL for better looking and security unlike this. this is super expensive phone, beside the well known brand of lumia and microsoft it'll be great deal. with carl zeiss optic lens no one can beat the pureview-ness of lumia lines. One more, the lumia 950 family just dropped their price. It's more way better than this.

AnonD-294135, 01 Apr 2016when it says no FM radio, does anyone actually still use a FM Ra... moreYeah...it becomes the thing of the past, same as analog TV. I mean some people may still use it, but most switched to internet radio, which is easily accessible these days. To be honest I've never actually used FM radio in the phone, so to me it's a very irrelevant feature.
