The Acer Liquid S1 is the company’s most expensive unlocked smartphone currently available, but other than its size lacks a compelling reason to select it over the cheaper, faster and more up-to-date Moto G LTE.

The Acer Liquid S1 is a great big phone with a reasonable spec and a reasonable price. Especially for the Dual SIM version. You get a lot of features that all work well. If you travel a lot and like the idea of a huge oversized phone then this might be the one for you. You’ll need to be prepared for the plasticy feel, the dodgy viewing angles on the screen, the hit and miss camera and the smallish internal memory.

If you are just looking for a good value-for-money phablet, we'd suggest the Huawei Ascend Mate, with its record large battery and stellar call quality, all for about the price of the Liquid S1. Alternatively, you can splurge a hundred more and get the Galaxy Note II, whose dimensions and performance are much more bearable, has a built-in stylus, frequent software updates, and, last but not least, a much better resale value.
