distributor, 01 Nov 2010hey NOOB why u preffer AMOLED screen ??? TFT is best . look video http://www.youtube... moreHey NOOB! Amoled is miles ahead of TFT, unless that is you want to go back 6 years in technology. All mobile phone screens are useless in direct sun, so the test in the video is bogus. Amoled is clearer, brighter and crisper than TFT too.

We stopped using it because it's not practical in most everyday situations, not because of technology. Apple is amazing at selling old crap to Apple freaks.
I have to give it to them tough, iPhone 4 is technologically now up there with other much more advanced brands.
About this Acer, i like it. I would prefer an AMOLED screen and maybe as big as 4 inches, but other than that i can see it as my next replacement phone when my contract expires.
Grover, 30 Oct 2010Why no front facing camera. Apple got it spot on including one. Just as brand width speeds ... moremore like because the fad of video calling has long lost its popularity but then apple decides to "make video calling a reality" long after that
No 'proximity sensor for auto turn off'?
no suggestion that this is not true!
Why no front facing camera.
Apple got it spot on including one.
Just as brand width speeds increase and video calling becomes a possibility every company drops the front facing. Strange?
its much faster than Liquid E
new chip-set is more efficient lower battery use, cooler running...I have a liquid e that has been overclocked to 960 and honestly 768 to 960...not much difference.....
REAL advantage here will be a 1500mh battery and a more efficient chip-set
My Liquid E has 2.2 running on it now YOU can change from Acer UI to stock Vanilla or even run the Acer UI with ADW on top...it rocks
Google: LCR-F or LCR-E
rickrules2225, 29 Oct 2010Finally it's out, been waiting this for century..Agree! :D
yes it's only a bit "faster" in terms of hertz : 800mhz against 768 mhz BUT ... BUT that's the next generation of qualcomm snapdragon and that's why ... it really is going to be faster !!!
for example , the same processor is used for the HTC desire Z ( it's kind of the best querty keyboard androphone these days ... ) and no one said it was a slow device , on the contrary it really is a snappy one !
So don't concider too lightly this phone because of it's frequency !
it has what is mostly needed and quite a good design !
If i do remember acer used to sell the liquid E at a really low price at the time ! Perhaps it's gonna be the same for this device too ! If that's the case it may become a strong opponent for other smartphone companies !
the main missing information is of course the UI quality .... we'll see !!
co0lG, 23 Oct 2010Reminds me of my good old N70 !!!OHH yeaa, exactly the same... ( beautiful times ) huuh
right now im very happy with my liquid e, but liquid metal totally my next phone...
I just got the Acer liquid E and I had a Motorola Quench/clix xt and this just blows it away . I was actually happy with the mopto but when I found out that there would be no upgrade to 2.1 from 1.5 in Canada but in the USA they are giving it the upgrade and not 2.1 but 2.2 Froyo. So that was it I took out the sim chip and put it on the shelf until My Acer showed up by UPS 2 days later.
This thing is lightning fast and is getting the 2.2 upgrade in October so see ya later Motorola....Hello Acer!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mhz speed isn't equal the performance of the Phone. The new 800mhz 7230 is far faster than the old 1ghz Snapdragon. Yet idiots still moan about ghz.
My 2.67ghz i7 920 (Passmark score 5565) can easily destroy a Pentium 4 at 3.8ghz (Passmark score 637).
Same goes for MP, 5 good megapixels with a decent lens is FAR better than a crap 8MP camera. Look at high end compacts, they are all reducing from 14/12mp to 10mp these days, because MP is mostly a gimmick for idiots.
The Liquid Metal uses the same CPU as the Desire Z for reference.
