After setting up a good name in the tablet market, the company ‘Acer‘ is working hard day in and day out to rule the smartphone market. Acer Liquid Z3 is the latest effort done by the company. That device was announced by the company a few days back, and is a low-budget Android smartphone. Acer knows it pretty well that making a spot in the smartphone market is damn tough; as many big fishes like Apple, Samsung, Sony etc rule this area. To give a tough competition to the devices getting launched by these companies, Acer has made sure to bless each and every aspect of Liquid Z3 with attractive features. This smartphone is fifth smartphone by the company (previous ones include Liquid S1, Liquid C1, Liquid E1 etc.). I believe that you want to know more about this smartphone. For that, just read out the next section.

Acer Liquid Z3 Features:
It’s waste to jump to the inner features part without talking about the outer look of this, or any other device. Acer Liquid Z3 has 109 x 60 x 10.4 mm (4.29 x 2.36 x 0.41 in) dimensions. Weight is 120 g. From this, the intention of Acer is quite clear that company wants to deliver a ‘smartphone’, rather than a phablet. This 3G Dual-SIM smartphone has 3.5-inches TFT capacitive touchscreen that offers resolution of 320 x 480 pixels. The screen size is smaller when compared with today’s trend, but, Allen Burnes, vice-president, smartphone division of Acer Europe believes that there is big demand for small sized smartphones. The pixel density is 165 ppi. The screen supports multitouch. So, all gaming freaks cheer up!
1GHz Dual Core Processor is what is there in this Acer smartphone to speed it up. If we compare it with smartphones getting launched nowadays, then this processing speed stands nowhere. But again, it’s budget smartphone, so as compared to the processing speed of budget smartphones, this one has it pretty good. The OS is Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
In the camera part, there is little disappointment. Acer Liquid Z3 does not have any secondary camera. This makes it not-a-good-smartphone for video chat lovers like me. If that’s not your concern, then you may like the camera part, as the camera in this smartphone is of 3.15MP with resolution 2048×1536 pixels. Geo-tagging feature is there in this camera.
Internal storage capacity of Acer Liquid Z3 is 4GB, which is expandable up to 32GB via microSD card. RAM is 512MB. Li-Ion 1500mAh battery is there in this smartphone. The official talk time and stand-by claims are unknown yet.
Apart from these specs, the company claims that there is something new, called Quick Mode profiles, in this smartphone. It contains different modes targeted towards different age groups. ‘
Acer Liquid Z3 Price & Availability:
As far as the price is concerned, this smartphone will hit Belgium, UK, Italy, Netherlands, Ukraine, France, Spain, and some other countries with the price tag of €99. This cheap price makes this smartphone perfect choice for those who are looking to buy a ‘good’ smartphone from a ‘trusted’ company, but don’t have big money to spend.
