Acer Liquid S1 Review

0. phoneArena posted on 19 Sep 2013, 06:36

The phablet category is getting quite the love from phone makers this season, and Acer is throwing a horse in the race with the Liquid S1. Its specs are decidedly in the lower midrange category, with an HD screen and a MediaTek processor, but Acer made available a dual SIM version of the S1, in the hope it will attract some more big-screen phone fans to an otherwise run-of-the-mill plastic 5.7-incher. Did Acer succeed with its first phablet, or next time will be the charm? Read on to find out...

Thick bezels... :P

Nice affordable option though.

PA, how about the GPS? Mediatek GPS sucks. It's very hard & takes a long time to lock the satellites. Million people who uses mediatek SoC have the same GPS problem like I do. Softwares can't fix it. Currently many Chinese phone makers switch to Qualcomm (Snapdragon S4 series). I wonder whether it's caused by the dropping price of Snapdragon S4 or the GPS problem in Mediatek. I'm not bothered by low benchmark score of mediatek CPU, but the GPS problem is my main concern.
My advice: don't buy any phones that are powered by mediatek if you need a functional GPS.
