Liquid Jade Z l Beautiful in Form and Function
Acer’s Liquid Jade Z is powered by Android 4.4 4G LTE and provides 64-bit 1.5GHz quad-core processing for fast browsing, streaming and downloading. Thanks to a stylish curved design that’s just .31 inches slim and weighs only 3.8 ounces, it’s comfortable to hold and use with just one hand. Boasting an IPS panel, the 5-inch HD display is viewable from almost any angle and readable in most circumstances with Zero Air Gap technology, which decreases reflections. It’s protected under a beautiful, yet strong Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 panel and features a special read mode to protect the eyes from blue-light emissions.
Featuring a voice-activated 13MP rear camera with a F1.8 aperture, the Liquid Jade Z creates beautiful pictures in almost any environment, even with little light. A front camera with a 5MP F2.2 aperture makes shooting selfies a cinch, while Bright Magic integrates multiple pictures into one image. The Jade Z also enables exposure control with one finger to adjust focus and exposure independently for clear shots.
This practical smartphone comes with 24Bit, 192KHz high resolution audio and an HD speaker with DTS Sound for enjoying HD music on the go. Its 2300 mAh battery provides up to 5 hours of talk time or 400 hours in standby.(2) Furthering multitasking, AcerEXTEND allows customers to control the Liquid Jade Z via a cable or wirelessly using their Windows-based PC, typing with their keyboard, using drag and drop and sharing.
Liquid Z410 – Practical Ease and Value
The Liquid Z410 is powered by Android 4.4 4G LTE and 64-bit 1.3Ghz quad-core processing. It delivers vibrant visuals and solid graphics performance in an affordable 5.1-ounce design boasting a 4.5-inch FWVGA (854×480) display.
An AcerRAPID key allows customers to program frequently used actions to be activated with just one touch, while Acer QuickTouch enables the phone to be controlled with a simple one-finger gesture. For example, swiping with a Z shape on the locked display launches the music player, swiping left or right commands previous and next songs, while a C shape opens the camera and a V shape enables dialer functions.
A 2MP 80 degree wide-angle front camera captures high-quality selfies and the rear camera features a 5MP autofocus snapper, LED flash and several pre-installed modes simplifying image capture. For example, presentation mode optimizes note-taking by converting pictures of a sheet of paper or a screen into .jpg, .pdf or .ppt files, while Dual Shot lets customers make collages of simultaneous shots or videos from the front or rear cameras for Picture-in-Picture and Video-in-Video. The camera is also voice commanded, so customers can focus on their subjects rather than logistics.
The Liquid Z410 comes with a 2000 mAh replaceable Li-polymer battery that lasts up to 5.5 hours of talk time or 400 hours in standby.(2)
