Acer Liquid Z530

The Acer Liquid Z530 is a compact and stylish smartphone that has a 5 inch screen capable of HD resolution. The device runs on a MediaTek MT6735 quad-core 1.3GHz processor. This article offers an overview of the features and characteristics of the smartphone as well as an Acer Liquid Z530 review.

Design

The Acer Liquid Z530 does not have a metallic body, typical of high-end models, however its polycarbonate shell is well polished. It is a compact phone with a thickness of 8.9 mm and a weight of 145 grams. It may not be one of the smartphones that catches much attention, but Acer strived to be ergonomic and the device offers a comfortable feel.

Display

The screen size is set to 5 inches, a perfect figure for those who still do not like the phablet format. The resolution is HD (720 x 1280 pixels), giving it a pixel density of 294 dots per inch. Not that it's one of the best resolutions. There are devices with 4K screens hitting the market, and the QHD screens are prevalent on much of the high end phones. Nevertheless, you can watch videos and other multimedia content without losing quality, which is better, and you will notice that the battery does not suffer much.

Camera

The Acer Liquid Z530 makes use of an 8 megapixel camera with a wide angle of 84 degrees. It has LED flash, which will allow you to capture higher quality images in conditions where the light is not favorable. It is always an advantage to find lower-end devices with this feature, since until recently taking pictures at night or in dark places was impossible.

There are the typical features like face and smile detection and geotagging. When recording video, the Liquid Z530 boasts of having the ability to record in HD (1080p). Meanwhile, the secondary camera also has 8 megapixels, perfect for videoconferencing, selfies and offers acceptable quality.

Power & Storage

The Liquid Z530 processor is a MediaTek MT6735 quad-core 1.3GHz processor. Acer announced two versions of the phone, one with 1GB of RAM and a 2GB that will be launched. The same applies to the internal storage, available to choose from 8GB or 16GB.

This chip will allow you to have a smooth and stable device, but anyone who needs more power may acquire, as we said earlier, the Liquid Z530S. This model, which does not have a price or specific launch date, will come with a MediaTek MT6753 eight cores processor at 1.3 GHz, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage.

Connectivity

In the connectivity section, the Acer Liquid Z530 has the ability to access high-speed 4G networks. It also has WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 EDR, and GPS with AGPS and a MicroUSB port, through which it will be possible to charge your device and transfer files and data to and from the computer.

Battery

Unlike the Acer Liquid Z630,  the battery on the Liquid Z530 is not one of its strong points, which is equipped with a 5000 mAh battery, the battery on the Z530 is 2420 mAh. Anyway keep in mind that it is a device with very limited features so this battery capacity may very well serve its purpose.

Review

If you're going for affordable an features with good performance I'd suggest one of the Wiko Smartphones, and if you have extra cash to spare you can go for the Acer Liquid Z630. The Liquid Z530 just does not live up to final expectations when looked at as a whole.
