Acer Liquid S2 vs Samsung Galaxy Note II: first look

0. phoneArena 04 Sep 2013, 02:23 posted on

Acer brought the big guns here at IFA 2013 and the Liquid S2 smartphone is the prime weapon in its arsenal. Being a member of the "phablet" device category, it sports a screen that would appeal to those who strongly support the "bigger is better" principle. Then there's the Samsung Galaxy Note II – a smartphone aimed at that very same crowd, but bound to be succeeded by a new model in the very near future. So why even bother comparing the two when the Note III is around the corner, you ask? Well, that's because the Samsung Galaxy Note II would still be on the shelves of retailers for a while, and the Acer Liquid S2 would be priced very similarly once it is out. The question is, which one of the two would deliver more bang for its money...

This seems stupid that they are comparing this to a Note 2 when the new version of the Note will be unveiled in a few hours, what is the point? We all know a phone released almost a year after its competitor will pretty much be better.

Not sure what you are referring to? S3 compared to what? The S3 was better than any phone that came out in 2011.

Or are you saying that they used to use the S3 to compare with newer phones and the S3 was better?

"we can't deny that the Liquid S2 is shaping up as a better pick, especially knowing that it will be priced very competitively once it is on the market."

What is price competitive in specific terms?
Will it be competing with the Note 2 on price, or competing with the Note 3 on price?

"Then there's the Samsung Galaxy Note II – a smartphone aimed at that very same crowd, but bound to be succeeded by a new model in the very near future."

Very, very, very near - as in today. So it's launching simultaneously with the Acer. It'll thrash it, and the Acer's only hope is being price competitive.

A reasonable price, ensures a sale to try it out for myself.
