About Smartphones Malaysia

A Solid Plastic Phablet

The Acer Liquid S1 utilizes an all-plastic shell around its 5.7-inch HD display. The plastic may feel a little on the thin side, but it does do its job by providing a sturdy frame in which to hold the smartphone. The phablet is also rather lightweight at just under 200 grams, a weight that is not too heavy nor too light.

On the rear we have a slightly curved back that helps to nestle the Liquid S1 into our hands comfortably, along with the humble little 8 megapixel camera in the middle.All in all, the Acer Liquid S1 is a rather simple looking phablet smartphone, all black with silver strips on the side of the phablet to give a little flair to its otherwise simple design.

Large High Definition Display

The display size is typically what makes a smartphone a smartphone or a phablet. With the Acer Liquid S1 however, we have a 5.7-inch HD 720p resolution LCD display. Its display may seem rather lackluster by today's standards due to its slightly paler colors and small viewing angles. But besides the slight downfalls of the display, it still gets the job done by allowing you to clearly see your content.

A processor that will get you by

In the Acer Liquid S1 sits a humble little quad-core MediaTek processor with a PowerVR GPU. Its not exactly the best and most powerful chipset around, even during the time of its launch, but it will still definitely get the job done for most simple day-to-day tasks – do not expect any intensive mobile gaming on this phablet.

The internal storage of the Liquid S1 is also rather small at just a measly 8GB, and your usable storage space is only around 4.5GB. Thankfully you can augment the small storage with a micro SD card. The Liquid S1 also has to make do with only 1GB of RAM.

Wide-angle Front Facing Camera

The front facing camera of the Acer Liquid S1 has a wide 88 degree angle lens that allows for more people to be in the frame for a great self-portrait shot or to have a group video chat with friends and family.

The rear facing camera is an 8 megapixel camera with an LED flash for those low-light situations. Unfortunately for the Acer Liquid S1, the photographs produced by the camera is rather lacking in several ways. Colors are typically overblown and the focus is rather on the soft side of things.
