Acer Liquid Jade S – Unboxing

A package arrived the other day and in it there was a very shiny box with an Acer Logo on it. Why don’t you join me while I unbox this little shiny box?

What we have here is a pretty neat phone that is coming in a suitably neat price. The phone feels nice in the hand and certainly has a good feel to the build quality. In initial tests whilst setting the phone up I have been reasonably impressed with the performance. The MediaTek Octa-core chipset is clearly a fast improvement over previous generations. However this will be really proven in the full review when I run some gaming and benchmarks tests.

That is all I have for my first impression after spending a few hours with the phone. I am going to be using it as my daily driver for the next week or so, I will be able to give you a more thorough review of it at the end of that. For now though here are some picture’s of the device.
