This sounds like a great phone, but it seems impossible to find. Only expansys has it in their UK online store, and even though it says "in stock" they won't ship for another month (yeah nice scam that one). Are there any online stores where it is available now?

I bought this phone one week ago. I like it. When you use internet on sim1 you van offcourse get phone calls at sim2. The brightness is ok, the speed is ok, i love having 2 sims working at the same time,very good of Acer. The one thing that is not so good, is the battery life. Bedides that it is a good phone for a very reasonable price. I would recommened it :)

I'm seriously considering buying this phone, but GPS performance is very important to me and by the comments, it appears to be poor.

You can use the data connection of only one SIM at a time. When SIM Card 1 is using its data connection, the data connection via SIM Card 2 is not available.
When SIM Card 1 is using its data connection, and you receive a call or message on SIM Card 2, the data connection on SIM Card 1 is automatically suspended. The connection will resume as soon as SIM Card 2 is no longer in use.

Bought thw white variant through expansys. Sim management works well - im forcing all my data via one sim. Phone feels snappy considering its a single core. Handles most tasks well. Wish it had a better battery...and the power button next to camera lense inconvenient. Overall sleek looking phone. Very happy with it

Can anybody confirm that the two sims are active, just like DX900. i.e. call waiting on the second sim if receiving call on other sim?

I've had this for 2 days now and here are my opinions... first of all, I own a mobile app and game development company, so I have a whole slew of phones to choose from... I'm partial to iPhone, but open to any platform... the reason I got this phone is because of the dual sim feature.. it seemed to be the best spec'd phone out there that I could find after a quick search.. I travel between 2 countries alot and I'm sick of carrying around 2 phones...

First, overall the phone feels great... the power button on the back is kinda weird... but otherwise, it feels fairly solid... not as nice as iPhone or HTC... but good enough for the price...

Screen seems good enough... I wish it had a bit more powerful CPU.. maybe dual core.. but it has at least 1 gig of ram.. and it feels about as smooth as my iPhone 4.... but once again for the price.. i can't complain too much...

Now here's the kicker! The battery on it is definetly not up to par... I'm not quite sure what I'm gonna do with it, but it might become a serious problem... It'll pretty much last you till about 7pm or so... so not even a full 12 hours with light use.. I'm talking just some phone calls, email, and some social networking apps... from about 8am to about noon it uses about 50% battery.. then by late afternoon, it's about to die! I can keep it plugged in at work, but sometimes I'm out all day...

I feel like something is wrong with the power management, it gets quite warm and sometimes the battery app says there's only 1 hour left of power on it even at like a 80% charge... not sure if there's anyway to upgrade the battery... but this is the only thing that keeps this device from being a real decent value... and why does it charge so SLOW!?!?!?

I have used the liquid gallant duo for 2 weeks now so far so good i am satisfied with it's performance. screen looks great! and responsive. Dual Sim works perfectly for us working abroad. Battery lasts a day with music/video browsing.
Only problem I haven't figured out at the moment is Rooting this android device from Acer. I tried several ways, none successful. anyone having luck Rooting this smartphone?

Does anyone know where to buy a spare battery for the acer Liquid Gallant Duo E350 in the UK?
Or if there is a compatable battery,, I have had no luck on the Internet or with Expansey, Amazon ( where I purchased it from) or Acer UK directly?
can't believe there is not something as simple as a battery for sale separately!!

Am finding the battery does not last long even with data and wifi turned off . i am not even making calls either.
I do like the phone though and hopefully can get this battery issue sorted. Thanks

I am from India i want to buy Acer gallant duo from expansys as there are no other dealers available. the website say Pounds= 134 + 40 (Shipping charges).

apart from the above do we have to pay any additional custom duties or any import taxes.

I found it on Amazon, but there were very few indeed.
Just two dealers had it and not too many in stock either.

Cheers,

Did you have problems with GPS? It's not working properly. I read somewhere that it's a know problem from MTK 6575. Do you know how to solve this problem? Any firmware? A helo should be great. thanks
