IFA 2013: Acer Liquid S2 hands-on

04 September 2013
Kicking off the festivities here at IFA 2013, Acer has given us a look at its new Acer Liquid S2 flagship. It's a 6-inch 1080p phablet that is the first to record video in the new ultra high definition 4K format. Other than that, the main camera makes 13MP stills and...

Acer must continue this trend. They should focus on making good smartphones coz they deserve more attention than any other OEMs have with us consumers. Samsung, LG, HTC and Sony are well known smartphone brands but Acer can do much better than any of them in design and feature categories. I hope that the performance is also as good as the features on paper.

Apart from the top mounted power button, I see another design flaw, the capacitive buttons, no bezel space beneath them, guaranteed it will be hard to play landscape orientation games without accidental exits to home screen. On the plus side they made the right button combo, I love appswitch buttons, dedicated menu buttons are so Gingerbread.

Very likeable device, I much rather have this than Z Ultra, quad led plus 13mp plus higher ppi and bigger battery is a no brainer. I think price will be low compared to Note 3, good, no need to pay extra for that useless pen and bloat software that don't even work well.
