The king of phablets is here!
Display and configuration
The latest member of Acer's flagship Liquid series, the S2 sports a huge 6 inches full HD (1080 x 1920 pixels resolution) IPS LCD display that takes full HD viewing to a whole new level. Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS ensures that all the latest apps run on the device. Beneath the hood is the unmatched power of a 2200MHz Quad Core processor. Paired with 2GB of RAM, it is capable of rendering crisp performance even with heavy workloads.
Camera and storage
What really sets this device apart however is the 13MP rear camera (with LED flash), which is the first phablet camera to shoot videos at UHD (7680 x 4320 pixels) resolution. The front camera is equally good with support for 1080p fullHD recording. Internal storage is decent at 16GB, but for those intending to record all their videos in UHD, external microSD card support of up to 128GB has been provided.
Connectivity and battery
The Acer Liquid S2 is a 4G device, which comes with Bluetooth, DLNA, GPS (with A-GPS) and GLONASS, NFC and microUSB connectivity. The battery is impressive at 3300 mAh.
The specs of the Liquid S2 appear like those out of a gadget lover's dream – huge display, equally great processing power, unbelievable camera and good memory. What's notable is that while providing these, Acer has not forgotten the essentials, giving the S2 great connectivity and battery support. Some users may find the non-removability of the battery a problem, but it is surely miniscule when compared to the path-breaking specs on offer. For anyone looking for the latest and the best in phablets, this is the best device to go for.

Along with the Full HD screen and great range of specs, it’s got everything in place to take on the big boys of the phablet world. Although it’s a sizeable six-incher, the Acer Liquid S2 doesn’t feel like too cumbersome for a phablet. It’s certainly a hand-filler, but the bezel surrounding the scr...
