Today Acer announces a more powerful version of its Liquid Z630 announced at IFA in September, the Liquid Z630S with more memory and storage as well as processing power. The handset features sleek, curved chassis with upgraded frontfacing cameras, wide-angle lenses and enhanced audio.
Like all Acer Liquid smartphones, the Liquid Z630S shares several features that improve the overall enjoyment of the technology in consumers’ hands, whether it’s watching movies, snapping selfies, or listening to music.

Phone fans will appreciate exposure control which allows adjustment of exposure and focus independently to get clear and bright shots, and Bright Magic photo that ensures selfies are always presented in the best lighting conditions.
Other user features through the range include the Acer QuickMode user interface which provides three customized layout options designed for specific groups of users – Standard Mode for those familiar with a smartphones; Easy Mode for those who are just learning; and Basic Mode that offers a range of protective options for kids. On top of Basic Mode, these handsets all offer Kids Center, a protected environment with parental control. Helping people get the most out of all these features is the Acer Aid Kit, a set of three tools that monitors the phone’s performance, manage battery life, and run the backup and restore center.
