Acer Liquid Express now available, from £10.21 per month

Both Orange and T-Mobile are now selling the Acer Liquid Express, offering the 3.5″ NFC-enabled Android phone on a range of contracts. T-Mobile has the cheapest, where you can get the Liquid Express for “free” on a £10.21 monthly tariff.

You don’t get much communications power for that, though, just 100 calling minutes, 100 SMS messages and one of the network’s flexible boosters for mobile data. Orange is doing it for a bit more.

There’s a very odd promotional page on Acer’s site, if you’d like to read more about the phone and its NFC capabilities.

    Not a bad little phone all things considered.

  2. Been a long time viewer of the site and just thought I’d make my first comment!

    The T-mobile deal is actually quite a bit better – it is 100 mins/100 texts plus data (500mb with no ‘over’ charges and they’ll never stop you browsing if you do go over PLUS a ‘flexible booster’.

    You need to ignore the fact that one of the flexible boosters is internet as all their android phones come with data included and instead add one of the others – I use the unlimited landline calls…

    So for just over a tenner you get 100 mins / 100 texts plus data plus unlimited landline calls plus a reasonable phone…not bad!

      Cheers. You’re right, I was flummoxed by the inclusion of the boosters and didn’t spend the additional 30 seconds needed to research the facts :(

        Well I’m a bit of a geek when it comes to all this sort of stuff and a devoted Android user….

        BTW Yours is the first site I view re Android- informative with humour – I do think some of the other sites take it far too seriously, keep up the good work, very much appreciated.

    I got an Acer Liquid Express on the £10.21 deal from T-Mobile. First impressions are:
    1] Abysmal battery life. I have to charge it up twice a day!
    2] Google maps only seems to work accurately when I connect via Wi-Fi on my home network. Otherwise it’s only accurate to 600 metres at best [set to 3G only]. If I set the phone to select 2G /3G automatically the Maps accuracy drops to 900 metres. Even my old Samsung Tocco Lite could manage 600 matres accuracy on 2G only.

    Other than that it’s a pretty spiffy phone. The deal and price point is good for me. My favourite apps are Google Sky Map and SkEye which are both amazingly accurate and informative for identirying the starts, planets and constellations in the night sky. Just point it up into the sk and it’ll tell you what you’re looking at.

    The battery life and GPS / Maps issue are real showstoppers though.

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…
