Zenon99, 23 Jan 2017why is phone memory is only 3GB memory even if it is said that it has 8GB memorySome of your phone's internal storage will be taken up with system software that you do not have direct access to. This includes the phone's operating system, pre-loaded apps, cellular modem firmware, and system recovery software. The space reserved for the operating system also includes enough free space to install any potential OTA updates that your manufacturer might publish in the future.
It's fairly common for all this system software to occupy at least a couple of gigabytes. In my experience, this phone's 5GB is extremely heavy. Especially considering that other similar Lollipop-based phones such as the Moto E 2015 have more than 4GB free out of their total 8GB.
The difference might be because of extra pre-loaded software and Android OS customizations that Acer bundled with the device. It might also be because of inefficient use of extra storage space in each of the system partitions, over and above the space that is strictly needed to hold that system and pre-loaded software. Finally, Acer might have deliberately left less internal storage space available in an attempt to give customers an incentive to opt for one of their more expensive devices.
After I update the new version on my acer liquid zest phone I got a lot of problems like it works slow in any application I open, then now my phone wont power on.
I like my phone for the price can't beat it....But can anyone help me with blocking....Wanna block someone n can't find an option????...Maybe don't have feature?
Zenon99, 23 Jan 2017why is phone memory is only 3GB memory even if it is said that it has 8GB memoryWithout a microSD card, my phone shows to have 8GB memory with 3GB used up by the system. Yet memory space available is a few megabytes, even when size of all the other files added together is less than 2GB. It keeps saying NOT ENOUGH MEMORY AVAILABLE when taking a photo.
This problem is of course rectified by adding a microSD card.
I have LTE version with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. It is far best phone for the price.
No power enough from battery. And It is a built in. Even if I shut off wifi, GPS, and turn off during night, battery loose at least 50% in a few hours. Absoluty need to charge every night. Rest of phone was ok for me.
I've been using this phone for 3 months now.For the money its great but i have a problem with the memory, when i put an aplication in the sd card it lags and i have to put it back in the internal memory :/
p.s. when you insert your sd card, click it to be like INTERNAL MEMORY, so you can use its memory
Not impressed at all with this Acer liquid zest , I have been using this phone approx. 3 days .The camera quit working lost all my pictures , lost all me text messages was deleting 1 message and they all disappeared . This was a gift I'm glad I didn't pay for it. Wouldn't recommend this cell to anybody .

i got mine ... i am having trouble with the storage i dont know why it cant be directly into the sd card
this Is an amazing phone for the price.I love it. Anyone having problems with sending or receiving pictures or data problems you should go to the APN settings and put in your carrier setting.( then no more issues).all you do is call your provider or goggle your data provider and fill it in yourself.
how do you set call forwarding on this phone? there is no option in the call settings.
jaquescousteau, 16 Dec 2016I just bought this phone...I'm having trouble sending and receiving TEXT MESSAGES. Can somebod... morei had to call my cell provider and they had to do a few things to get my texting to work.
This phone lags too. After 2 having to discard two Alcatel Idol 3's because their ultra-fragile screens contain transparent electrical connections, making them useless after suffering even the slightest crack, I was out of money and needed something cheaper. I really really tried to like or even tolerate this phone but I just couldn't suffer through 15 minute reset times and having to format my storage card in order to use it (I should say use half of it) with this phone. This phone has worse performance and more bugs than the Samsung Galaxy Discover I bought 4 years ago for the same price. This one's a dud. Steer clear.
