SoyaCincau’s best smartphones under RM1,000

Acer Liquid Z630s


Acer launched a trio of smartphones late last year, but they were rather underwhelming. Early this month, though, they refreshed the higher-spec Liquid Z630 by adding an “s” badge to the end of it. The resulting device, the Liquid Z630s, turned out to be a capable device. It keeps many of the features we liked on the old model including the 4,000 mAh battery but upgraded the internals.

Now, you get a 5.5-inch HD IPS LCD panel on the front, plus a MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor mated to 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage on the inside. Unfortunately, it also retains the Z630’s lackluster 8MP primary camera. However, that means you still get the 8-megapixel front-facing camera which is a nice touch for selfie enthusiasts.
