Solid build quality, interesting design

Finding a spot in the crowded midrange is no walk in the park, and the Acer Liquid Jade S couldn't quiet convince us that it has what it takes. It started off great, impressing us with its design, UI and performance, but the phone gets three strikes in very important areas - display, battery, and camera. Unless there's a price cut in its near future, we don't think it can get away with that.

A nice handset that has been well made and put together

from Coolsmartphone

This is a hard one really as I want to like this phone but there are a few things here that just put me off. I cannot quite place my finger on it. I do like the build quality although it is plastic it feels nice and solid and the plastic has no rough edges etc. The screen is very bright even at its lowest settings meaning that in direct sunlight I have still been able to see things. Delving deeper into the design is where things start to unravel with the wierd placement od the sleep lock button and the 2nd mic position start to see bigger issues. I am not sure I’d the phone has been designed for a left handed user but the phone just feels awkward in the right hand you invariably end up activating the volume button with the palm of your hand.

I liked the camera apart from the finikity UI and its a big improvment over the pure Android UI. I do wish that I could remove some of the modes on the camera. Thereby getting rid of the cluttered look, however as you can see the camera is not too shabby.

If you are want a high end mid tier phone this defiantly one to consider, however if you want high end then you need to look elsewhere.

Decent performance and battery life

from PhoneArena

The Acer Liquid Jade S is a smartphone with evident strengths and weaknesses. For starters, its design qualities are above average. Its graceful body feels thin, light, sturdy, and very comfortable, although the back panel is on the slippery side. Meanwhile, the curved glass layer is straight-up premium tier!

Moreover, the Liquid Jade S is reasonably fast and feature-packed. It runs on recent hardware and software. It also has good battery life. Unfortunately, its photo and video capabilities are underwhelming, despite its 13MP camera sensor and well-rounded camera app. Finally, due to its low earpiece and loudspeaker output, the Jade S fails at the basic task of being a reliable phone!

The Acer Liquid Jade S will be sold in the Europe, Middle East, and African region at $330 (299 EUR) unlocked. We don't know whether Acer plans on launching it in America. In this price range, Europeans have a wide choice of competing devices that outclass the Liquid Jade S in most categories. One could simply pick an older flagship like the LG G2, Sony Xperia Z1, HTC One (M7), Z1 Compact, or the Samsung Galaxy S4 at about the same price, and set themselves with a noticeably superior experience.. In these circumstances, the Acer Liquid Jade S seems poorly situated on the market, and practically begs for a price cut to stand a chance.
