IFA – Acer’s new phones

CES – Acer H7550ST. Yes, it’s a projector, but wait…

A projector isn’t something you’ll see covered a great deal here. Yes, there’s projectors that you can connect your phone to etc, but this puppy is really quite interesting because inside there’s a Chromecast dongle. Acer have strapped one inside of this so that you can watch

Acer Liquid Jade – Mini review

There’s a wide variety of handsets around but , as you’ll no doubt know yourself, they all have a very similar design – one big screen up front, a couple of cameras and that’s about your lot. Yes, I’m generalising a little, but my first impressions from

Acer Liquid Z5 – Review

I recently received the Acer Z5 budget smartphone through for review, and despite there being a dual-SIM variant, this is the single SIM version. After unboxing my first impressions were… “Hang on, someone has put a Nexus 5 in here by mistake!” Good Points Good feel in
