It is bad because the sound system stopped working sometimes it works but mostly it doesn't.
This phone was great for about 4 months then it started going down hill. freezing , deleting apps, constant messages popping up about some app is unresponsive. It erased the keyboard one day and the only way i could get it back was to yell at my phone till it understood the word " keyboard" I found it kind of funny that it started to go downhill once android 8 came out. Another fun fact is that you cant update this phone to the new android 8.....it is stuck at Android 6.....forever..... I tried to factory rest it the other day....and now its completely toast and doesn't have any operating system .....wtf. Sure glad I bought it at costco and it started to crap out after there BS 90 day return policy..,.
Man, just dropped his phone from the height of my head and it survived!!! No cracks or anything wow... I was expecting a tiny crack but NOTHING!!! For a $200 phone with no gorilla glass or anything that's great!
Someone figured out how to root this phone the other day: https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/help/help-root-acer-liquid-zest-plus-z628-t08-t3542001/page2
No one can hear me when I call another cell phone. Seems to work fine phoning a land line.
Like the feel of the phone but one HUGE issue, if you are getting a dule sim phone to have two lines to the phone like I do with my BLU this phone is NOT FOR YOU. the second sim is "standby only". nothing in the documentation mentioned this before I bought the phone to replace my BLU so I am taking it back to Costco
This is a really good phone, I wasn't having sound issues like the other comments were, and it works great.
The things I don't like about it are: the front speaker collects dust, screen attracts dust, and 12 days in there is already a tiny scratch on the phone... Oh and I must point out the rear facing speaker is good but when your in areas that are kind of loud you cannot hear it unless you the up the volume to 70% it would solve the issue if Acer put the speaker on the bottom...
Note: Good luck finding a screen protector.... And when you FIRST buy it you MUST get a screen protector it doesn't have any scratch resistant coatings, well you know I already have a tiny scratch on it...
I'm having problems with people texting from an apple phone i wasn't getting their texts so i went to costco & they rectified the problem. anybody who had an apple phone had to turn on their SMS in the settings under iMessage
Anonymous, 26 Mar 2017People can't hear me talking.if they do hear something, it sounds really bad. Hello, I have the same issue, after a month from purchase the bottom microphone stops working while the one on the back still works. Using a mic test app to figure this out. After reboot the bottom mic is starting to work again, do that to fix. I still have 2 months to return the phone if it continues to do that.
The sound system is crap. It randomly turns the volume off when i have headphones or an aux cable plugged in. If i turn the music up, it turns it right back down on it's own. Or it plays for a second then just stops playing. Very very very frustrating. And from what i have found online, I am not the only one having this issue.
i accidentally touched the speaker of my phone with my not so wet hands. will it affect the quality of the sound of my speaker?
I was soooo excited to get this Liquid CEST PLUS, especially the price is very reasonable. But after checking everything out, importing contacts, trying to set my phone to NOT show my caller ID sometimes (you don't want telemarketer calls/voice mails/texts on a prepaid phone), assigning individual ringtones to some contacts.... I pulled my hair. The manual clearly states: **Tap (pen) to edit the contactÂ’s details; tap (3horiz.dots) again for more options, where you may set a ringtone for the contact, send all incoming calls to voicemail, or add a contact picture.** Yeah, right! "assign ringtone" is not in the menu!!!! Same with "call settings/SUBS settings/additional settings/show caller ID or not".... SUBS settings are not in the menu anymore. It would be a wonderful phone for that price, I'm ok with the picture quality and the sound with headset, since I am only occasionally on the phone, checking emails or do some banking. What a disappointment. Did anyone else here notice that assigning individual ringtones does not work? Any suggestion how to solve? I just don't want to do a 'blind update' and possibly wreck everything. Thanks for any reply and suggestion. I wrote already on the ACER website forum, but apparently they are all dead >:
Phone is great but sounds sucks. If I hook it up to headphones or speakers and turn it up loud it will stop the music. And Bluetooth sucks at trying to connect.... But other than that cannot complain. Battery is great lasts me 2 to 3 days without a charge and performance is not bad
Ronald, 02 Dec 2016I've been using this phone for over a month now and one of the things I really like about it i... moreI am having the exact same issue. Upon restart the DTS is checked off and when I enable it makes no difference in the sound quality. I even tried the factory reset and it didn't help.
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2017I purchased phone because of the dual sim feature however I get the following error message wh... moreI think I know the reason. This phone's dual sim feature is not too good. Whenever you set one sim to 3/4G the other sim will be forced to 2G. And not many network support 2G these days. That is why you get network error on the 2nd sim. In order to use the 2nd sim you have to set the 2nd sim to 3/4G but that means you can't use the first sim. In other words you can only use 1 sim at a time.
