Acer Liquid Metal Hands-on and Impressions [MWC] [VIDEO]

The Acer Liquid Metal doesn’t really do anything special software wise, but it’s the hardware that its name is derived from. The phone is constructed of mostly aluminum, but a unibody design it isn’t. Still, all of the materials come together to make a nice looking phone that anyone would want to carry around.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about the Acer Liquid Metal was its LED notification system – three backlit icons on the top of the device will notify you for three different things. One is there for messages, one for battery life indicator, and the other is for missed calls. I believe there’s a general one on the face of the device for everything else .

The specs don’t make it sound like the most amazing of devices – it has a 3.6 inch display, Qualcomm’s 7230 800MHz processor, Android 2.2, 720p HD video recording, a 5 megapixel autofocus camera, plus more. Not bad, but not exciting. Solid is what it is. Take a look at it in the video above.

    Specs are low? It is the same specs as a G2. This phone has been out since late 2010 and everybody I know who has one absolutely loves it. Easily the best bang for buck on the market and it looks sexy.

    These LEDs are also available on the first iteration of the Liquid and they are highly useful. Also, Acer UI sucks but the good thing is that it can easily be turned off.
