Acer Iconia B1-720 – Review

Acer keep on releasing products, year in year out. Seemingly regardless of whether or not the product will sell, it just like clockwork, another year another tablet. The Iconia B1-720 is the latest in their budget range of 7″ Android tablets, the Iconia B range offer reasonable

Asda to knock out the Acer Liquid Z5 for £99

Just last month we spotted that the budget-priced Z5 was available in the UK.  Trouble was,  it cost around £145. Now the mighty Asda are doing the dual-SIM device for just £99. Although we’d probably still go for the Moto G, it’s an OK price for a

Acer S2 does 4K at MWC OK

This is the Acer Liquid S2. It’s a monster of a device and I’ve carried around Barcelona for the past few days. It comes equipped with a 6″ Full HD IPS screen at 1920×1080 (368PPI) and has a rather smooth zero gap display with a curved Gorilla

Hands on with the Acer Liquid E3

A few days ago Acer announced two new smartphones just before Mobile World Congress and the Liquid E3 got a lot of attention for a rather unique feature on the camera. We just went to the Acer event before the official conference starts on Monday and were

Acer Iconia B1-720 – Initial Impressions

Acer announce two new phones prior to MWC

Less than £180 for the Nexus 7

So, you don’t want to go for an ultra-cheap-bargain-basement tablet but, at the same time, you don’t want to get utterly fleeced buying a top-end tablet. What about the Google Nexus 7 we reviewed? Fancy that? How about bagging one for less than £180? How’s that sound

Acer Liquid Z3 Duo – Review

Small things have a place in life, small phones definitely do too. Not everyone wants a huge device and not everyone wants a super complicated device covered in widgets and shortcuts. Good Points DTS Audio Small and compact Several different launchers designed for kids and the elderly

Acer Liquid S1 – Review

I’ll come out and say it, I love enormous phones, call them phablets, small tablets, massive phones or just plain old stupid. I’m a convert, I’ve come to terms with the fact I’m never going to be able to wear super skinny jeans and own a large

Acer Liquid S1 phablet – Initial Impressions

The current generation of Acer devices are pretty impressive, at the top of the pile is the “S” range, which is the flagship device range. The Liquid S1 phablet is a great big thing with a 5.7″ screen and specs similar to the Galaxy Note II. I’ve

Acer Liquid Z3 Duo – Initial Impressions

Acer Liquid E2 is now available on Three

Cast your mind back to last week, I reviewed the Acer Liquid E2 and I found it to be a pretty good budget phone, with a few problems. Well Three have now got some stock and you can get them on a contract or on PAYG. Brendan

Acer Iconia A1-810 tablet – Initial Impressions

I do love a good hand sized tablet, which is probably why I use my Nexus 7 every single day and also why I’m probably going to get the new Nexus 7 when it appears in this country. Can an alternative manufacturers offering tempt me away from the

Acer Liquid E2 – Review

Now and again a phone comes along that impresses me. It’s normally when the price, design, specifications, software and something special all combine to make something great. I’ve been using the Acer Liquid E2 for a few weeks now and am I impressed? Yes, but there are

A powerful, cheap smartphone? Set yourself free

Regular readers will know that I’ve ditched my long-standing Orange contract mobe and switched to a rolling monthly deal instead. The benefits are that I’m not hooked into a 2-year deal, I’m spending less because I’m not subsidising that “free” handset, and I can hop to another

There’s a lot being said about the new Acer Liquid E2 right now (which the boys at Expansys will be selling for a mere £179.99) but this is the earlier Acer Liquid E1 Duo. The “Duo” in the name is kinda revealing – this will accept two
