BEIJING, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire-Asia/ --, one of China's leading B2B search platforms with more than 30 B2B industry websites to its name, evaluates the Acer A1 smartphone.

The Acer Liquid A1 is light in color and very lively in appearance. It is 115x62.5x12.5 mm, a very appropriate size, not too large. At 135 grams, it is not to heavy either.

The phone has a plastic shell that is very smooth. The shape is the same as that of the S200, a previous Acer model, curving broadly at the top and bottom.

The Acer Liquid A1 still has the traditional dark mirror design, and the entire front is occupied by a screen. The phone has a 3.5-inch WVGA-resolution screen, with touch buttons below for four key actions.

On the side of the A1 there are not many buttons, just the ever-present volume adjustment keys and camera shortcut keys. The Acer Liquid A1 charging interface is also there, it must be connected to a computer through a USB cable.

Inside the back cover we can see the A1 battery warehouse with a traditional SIM card slot. In addition, there is a memory card slot, indicating that the phone supports MicroSD card expansion, so that users can add their own personal data.

The combination of 512MB memory and 256 MB RAM allows for decent memory expansion. It also has a 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus and flash, relatively good for a smartphone.

The Acer Liquid A1 has WiFi functionality. It operates on the 3G network. HSDPA and HSUPA support are also highlights of the phone, which make the whole Internet experience very good; users do not need to wait any longer to experience 3G.

The main shortcoming of this phone is CPU; the A1 uses Android version 1.6. The current 1.6 version cannot handle high-frequency CPU, so the final retail version of the A1 disappointingly can only handle CPU of 768MHz; it is believed that with the increasing popularity of Android 2.0, the A1 will eventually be upgraded to 1GHz.

The Android's interface is divided into three screens, the user can add, delete, and move. But also can customize the plug-in content, so it is user- friendly user.

The A1 uses Android's own MP3 player, which has a very simple interface and conveniently supports current formats. The A1 is equipped with a 5 megapixel camera, which has auto focus and flash. A camera of this quality in a smartphone is very rare.

The Acer Liquid A1 uses a 1350 mill amperes battery. In terms of battery capacity it is not much different from previous models. It has a normal standby time of about one to two days.
