If you're up for a new low-to-mid-range phone soon and fancy looking beyond the usual suspects, Acer's newly announced Liquid E2 might be worth a closer look.
It's a quad-core, dual-SIM effort running Android (inevitably), and will be touching down locally as soon as next month starting at a shade under £200.
From a looks point of view it's quite the curvy customer that's fairly easy on the eye without taking your breath away. A fairly slender bezel surrounds a 4.5in qHD (540 x 960) display.
No details yet on just what quad-core processor is inside, but we do know you get 8MP/2MP cameras, and the main rear-facing cam supposedly offers zero shutter delay – an interesting and welcome feature if it does live up to its promise.
It's also a bit of an audio specialist, boasting dual stereo speakers round the front, DTS Sound support and a software utility called Moodagent which supposedly is able to create playlists based on your mood. Doesn't sound gimmicky at all, does it?
Acer will be rolling out the Liquid E2 in black and white in the UK, Belgium, Netherlands, Ukraine, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, and Russia in mid-May, with a quoted starting price of €229 (£193).
