New Smartphone. One of Taiwan's technology-based company Acer continues to demonstrate its ability in the smartphone industry. Not long ago, they have released a new smartphone coming in Liquid type, Called the Acer Liquid Jade. The main attraction of this smartphone is its form as a super thin and matched by the beauty of its design.
Carrying the IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen technology up to 16 million colors, Liquid Jade also supported a 5-inch screen with HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Not only that, this smartphone screen has pixel density of 294 ppi achieve that will makes it very comfortable on the eyes. Get a chance to feel the comfort and the ability smartphone is priced at more than $ 320 Intrigued by its performance, we also examined in depth ranging from the hardware side, the design, camera and display interface owned Liquid Jade.
The dimensions of a 5-inch screen size is not too large and of course super thin design, Liquid Jade including convenient for the size of a smartphone today. Acer expands this new smartphone with the dimensions of 140.5 x 69 x 7.5 mm and its weighs only 110 grams. Therefore, Liquid Jade is really feels comfortable when held and easy to slip into a pants pocket.
The design of Liquid Jade is really offer spectacular beauty phone combined with textured silver bezel around the entire side of the body. Placement button behind the bezel also gives the impression as if the side of his body is present without the button if seen by naked eye from the front.
If you notice more for its operational keys. At the top of the body there is a power button and 3.5mm Audio Jack port. While on the right side of the Acer puts Volume button, and on the left side you can find a slot to put a Sim Card and microSD behind dibisa tray is opened and closed. MicroUSB port by Acer placed at the bottom of the body.

Sim Card support of embedded, Liquid Jade brings the use of Dual Sim Card with the size of the Nano. Interestingly, Sim Card slot both need to sacrifice the use of microSD. That is, if you want to install a second Sim Card, you can not longer put the microSD into the smartphone and vice versa.
Placement of the second Sim Card must be "shared" with microSD container.
Of course, we assume that the innovations presented by Acer is becoming lame. Because, if the user wants to add external storage capacities, they must sacrifice Sim Card use both. Alternatively, this could be a strategy Acer be able to produce super-thin smartphone?
Around the screen, Acer has put forward a 2 MP camera without LED flash light. In addition, there is also a speaker is quite striking with a rounded design and silver color access. Acer also pinned LED for notifications. While the three navigation buttons, the Back, Home, and Recent Apps together with the screen.
Acer puts the Volume button and Sim Card and microSD slot on the left and right side of body.
At the rear (back cover), Acer Liquid Jade wrap with plastic material plus a layer with a glossy texture. Acer also put a 13 MP primary camera with a resolution of 4160 x 3120 plus LED flash light and logos are pretty big in the middle with silver effect. In addition, Acer also pinned speakers with support for DTS-HD Premium Sound.
Unfortunately, the touch of a glossy texture that wrapped the body of Liquid Jade makes this smartphone feels a bit slippery when held, especially by hand wet with sweat. Not only that, the body easily scratched the back and leave a trail of the user's finger.
In the upper body, Acer put the Power button and 3.5mm Audio Jack port. While in the lower body, Acer just put a microUSB port.
Unibody design, the battery is installed on your Liquid Jade can not be separated. Unfortunately, Acer only provide Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) with a capacity of 2100 mAh. Is the capacity for it is able to make more optimal Liquid Leap? Our assessment of the installed batteries can be found in the "Batteries and Benchmarking".
