Acer has released another Android phone, the third for the year, in the Philppines. The new offering is the Acer Liquid Z2 Z120. The phone is priced at Php4,990 and as can expected at that price, the phone comes with modest specifications:
- Dual SIM
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
- 3.5-inch HVGA display (320 x 480)
- 4 GB internal storage, expandable via a microSD card slot
- 512 MB RAM
- 1 GHz single core Mediatek processor
- PowerVR SGX531 GPU
- 5 MP primary camera
- No front camera
- 1300 mAh battery
Is this phone worth looking at? If you don't need the dual SIM capability, spending Php500 more can get you the Huawei Ascend Y300D. The Ascend Y300D has a larger and sharper display and dual core power. I would recommend that instead.
However, if you do want a dual SIM phone at this price, it is a more difficult choice. There are better phones available like the Cherry Mobile Flare, Thunder or Burst. However, all the dual-SIM Android's at this price phone still run on Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. The Acr Liquid Z2 Z120 runs on Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. For me it would be easier to live with Ice Cream Sandwich with a 4-inch or large WVGA (480 x 800) display, the having Jelly Bean on a HVGA display. Basically, I am not recommending the Acer Liquid Z2 Z120.
