Acer Liquid Zest 4G was first shown at the MWC 2016, special attention is not paid to him, it was just one of a number of models displayed on the stand. Well, in this review we will investigate, passing a smartphone or, conversely, interesting.
If we talk about design in general, Acer Liquid Zest 4G is similar to many other phones, except that slightly different angle flatness (I see it as often testing a smartphone, the average person probably will not notice the difference, and this).
But there are a number of little things that have long been there in the apparatus of the Acer, and let them focus. Firstly, the earpiece here in the form of a circle, the same applies to the outer mesh. Secondly – the materials of the housing. I really like the Acer began experimenting with them, for example, the back cover is made of plastic in Acer Liquid Zest 4G, tactile-like plain paper, with matt and he almost did not get dirty. By the way, the bundle includes a removable cover.
Incidentally, the external speaker is very good. He has a large margin of volume, and it does not rattle even at its maximum value.
The right side. Volume rocker and the power button. Pressing the keys and short and stiff.
Under the rear lid hid two slots for microSIM-cards and a slot for memory cards.
The device is well-assembled, the back cover is mounted on a set of latches, squeaks and no backlash.
Screen Acer Liquid Zest 4G is perfect for most everyday tasks: five inches and comfortable to read text, watch videos, and play games. As to the quality of the screen, it is secondary. That is, here, on the one hand, natural color reproduction and, according to my feelings, no air gap, and on the other – mediocre viewing angles and zheltyaschy display.
The device runs on Android 6.0 with a few additions from Acer. For example, in the launcher appeared HTC Blinkfeed analogue. The left pane is reserved for news from social networks, and on top shows the weather forecast.
Another manufacturer has arranged special playing area, where you can run your favorite games and even write a screencast straight from the game.
Chipset MT6735P several times already present in our surveys and for the most part showed good results, Acer Liquid Zest 4G is no exception. The device is very fast: launcher, browser, third-party applications to speed I did not have any complaints. As well as the games, Asphalt 8 well is at the maximum setting.
Small by modern standards, the battery capacity once caused me questions about the timing of the smartphone, but the results were much better than I expected, but you can judge for yourself from the figures of our tests. With daily use (web browsing, reading e-mail, social networking and instant messaging applications), you can safely expect about three hours included screen.
How many smartphones Acer I tested, and in each chamber was a weakness. Unfortunately, Acer Liquid Zest 4G is no exception in this respect. The device is very poorly focused, so even on a sunny day you have to make two or three shots to get a good result. When artificial lighting situation is only getting worse. With video, too, everything is bad, the picture comes out soap, lubricated parts. The only thing good at this camera – Macro.
As usual interfaces then set a budget, no frills, worth noting except that good by the standards of MediaTek, GPS work but support LTE cat.4.
From point of view of voice no complaints: you and your partner each other perfectly hear.
Acer Liquid Zest 4G retail price starts from 11,000 rubles. For the money the smart phone came out … the usual, perhaps, this is the right word to describe it. The eye can cling except for unusual material back cover so light weight model. Screen and autonomous operation of the average, a bad camera, the shell itself is not.
And that’s the problem. In this price range you can not just be ordinary. It is necessary to provide maximum opportunities for the money, or simply get lost in the competition. And so it was with Acer Liquid Zest 4G yes, it’s a good machine, but he has many analogues and do not have any weaknesses, for which it would be possible to choose it.
