An impressive screen, but an otherwise unexciting budget smartphone
Acer is better known for laptops than smartphones in the UK, and the Liquid E2 is unlikely to change this situation. It has a good screen and reasonable performance, but is let down by poor design and the fact it's just outclassed by the very strong mid-range competition.
