Worst phone I have ever used. It is slugish, unstable and no software updates from acer.
If jellybean was avalable or at least a custom jellybean rom the phone would have been usable if you dont load alot of aps or try anything that will need prossesing power, the phone prosseses data about as fast as a human would with a pen and paper.
I bought this phone as a non permanent device becuse my phone was stolen, the first month was tolarable with lag here and there and the phone takeing his time on some tasks, after that it was a sharp decline downhill, it sometimes takes 3min just to open a text and even longer to find a contact on my list, randon complete crashes and apps not responding is a every day incounter. Sometimes the keyboard randomly refuses to accept any input and a reboot is needed, I tryed to fix this by using a 3rd party keyboard with no luck. When I recive a phone call the call dont show up for me to answer untuil 3seconds after it starts to ring and once I swype to answer another 2 to 4 seconds of lag.
I dont whish this much frustration to my worst enemy, this phone is a do t buy in every category.
web browsing is a nightmare, zoom and scroll on page is more than just slugish, and pages take an eternety to load even on fast networks and wifi. Then just as you FINALY got to the page you wanted the browser will crash and not remember were you were. This brings me to wifi, verry poor wifi connection and takes most of the phones resources wich makes it inpossable to preform evetyday tasks like texting or checking the weather. The GPS is virtualy non existant, its worse than those first gps phones in the 2000s, most of the time it will rely on the cell towers to triqngulate you to about 5km and when the gps actualy trys to pin you it is not only within a 500m range but sometimes way of. Even everyday tasks is to much for it, like typing, it lags incredebly sometimes, most of the time the letters show up 2 or 3 seconds after I touched it and sometimes like I said never do.

Closing statement, If you are planning on using ot for more than a month this is the worst phone you can get. It hase brought shame on the Android name and ensured that I never spend money on ACER again

Was a great phone for the year I had it. Though sadly when replacing the screen the LCD contact was broken so I had only a black screen :/ That is one negative of any phone though. Another gripe was no front-mount camera though this wasn't major. The biggest problem I had with owning this phone was the lack of cases available. There is only one company that makes cases specifically for this phone (all other case may FIT it, the camera and power button are on the left-hand corner of the phone, not the middle so you wouldn't be able to use it). Another small thing was that the speakers were rather tinny. Overall, I would have happily bought another model of this phone but I believe that they aren't made anymore. A shame as for the money it was fantastic.

Mine would not reboot or wipe data,just keeps crashing if you switch wifi on. After a year..dead ...no response to anything. When working it was pretty good, I even began to understand Android but it was false economy. The battery life is terrible : you could not plan a long journey with this without a back up. Come on Apple...let's have a dual sim iPhone soon. This was 120 pounds wasted .

> In reply to annie @ 2013-12-15 22:55 from JaFK - click to readI have to say that I found this to be the best mobile I have ever owned. I bought this as a cheap replacement for a drowned phone and only intended to use it for a short while. At the time I got an intro offer on it for £120 and it was a bargain.

I give this mobile really heavy use 24/7 and it has never yet let me down.
So 18 months + later I am still using it and see no reason to change it.

When it worked it was brilliant but, 9 months on has now given up the ghost and totally died - no answer from Acer helpline so have just ordered another (different) phone. Disappointed that it didn't have a front camera, for 1/2 the price I am getting a new phone with a higher OS and twin cameras.

I bought this because I was told it had the best value for money dual SIM phone. From the third month something was always wrong. But the worst are its battery's life and the fact that is something happening in the core and I can't read, receive or send any message. When I called back the store where I bought it from they said it is a usual problem for this model. At first I thought I had found the perfect smartphone, but now please don't bother buying it...

I have App Cache Cleaner running in background and set to clear cache every 4 hours.

Since I got it my E350 works perfectly

I bought this phone 3 weeks ago and have used it when travelling so I could run 2 sim cards at once. I found no issues or problems with the phone at all. It happily runs the 2 phone lines and managed to stayed logged onto skype and a VOIP presence at the same time. OK its not super fast but considering the modest pricing I think the phone is an excellent buy.

I found a smartphone listed as "Acer Liquid Gallant S Duo E350S" on Ebay. It looks identical on the picture and the listed specs are the same, except the CPU/chipset, which is MTK 6577, Dual Core 1GHz.

I inquired the seller whether it was a mistake in their description and they responded it was an upgraded Taiwanese model. I'm unable to find any references to an upgraded Taiwanese version of this phone with an MTK 6577 chipset.

Any opinions on its legitimacy?

I bought this phone when it first came out in the UK, I think its great, one small problem is that the screen light keeps going on and off when not in use, I noticed it when I woke up in the night and saw it glowing, on and off, anyone know why, and how to rectify it, it has been updated twice
