Torero, 11 Jan 2016Hi Guys,
Is there any latest update (OTA) for this? Nope. None. Nada.
Don't get your hopes up, buddy. But this is acer's MO. They rarely, if ever, upgrade their OS to the newest ones.
This is my first and last acer mobile device. I bought this together with an iconia b1-750 tablet mid last year hoping that at least they woiuld get a lollipop update within the year since both are relatively new (both were introduced early 2015). Great specs for the price. Great price for the specs. But after getting tired of constantly asking (and not getting answered) on various social media outlets, not to mention their official community forum, if both units would get a lollipop update, I gave up! I saw some users say that acer is great on price and hardware, but that's it. No upgrade path for the most part.
I'm dumping acer and I'm going to try and find a company who makes decent enough products without gouging the price for their customers. And not leave them without a solid upgrade path as per the original mandate of Google for using their OS for free (the mandate states that an OEM/company must support their products for at least 18 months from the launch with OS updates and upgrades).
Maybe that's why Acer can't get a foothold on any market they enter. They just leave their customers hanged out to dry in the OS upgrades and their PR sucks! They should just stick to making PC's and windows phone. At least they don't have to worry about putting resources for updates. Microsoft does it for them.
Bought it at Costco, and glad I did because the return was easy. Phone was terrible. Lots of lag running almost every app, using the keyboard to write SMS and emails was laggy. Had to pause after every word just to make sure it was keeping up, and then when the SMS was ready to send, it would take minutes to actually send it.
the acer liquid z410 is a great phone for the price if your lucky enough to purchase one, in the uk it nearly impossable to get one , love the duel sim , and front speakers and overall design read the stats its awsum for the price
I left the phone in car during the night, temperature is about -15 °C. The screen got cracked. Checking with Acer customer service, the screen is not covered by warranty.
Not having any regrets for this phone, loving it for 6 months now. 😍
One of the best, if not THE best, gaming phone in its price range.
Decent battery life.
Front speakers is a + for me.
Screen resolution is a tad better compared to similar priced phones.
Heats at the upper side of the phone when gaming with wi-fi on. Even hotter when using mobile data while playing the same games.
Below average back and front camera.
Bezel's too thick for me.
Take note of the cons before buying this phone. The biggest of those is the heating issue, when you play and have mobile data the phone might lag when you use it in a place above 35° above.
The question I would like to ask though is that if this phone model have an OS upgrade?

Easily overheats when using mobile data and camera/video, and also in making/answering calls without using headset. It overheats even if it mobile data is turned on for few seconds.
