It is like this if Liquid Z200 (middle) is aligned with 4 inch size iPhone 5s (left) and 5 inch size Nexus 5.

Liquid Z 200 is the thickest.

◆ I tried using
· APN settings of various SIM cards
In this time I decided to try using SIM card of other mobile line instead of book-off cheap SIM "book off original plan". Liquid Z200 is a SIM lock free terminal, so if you support even the band you can use SIM card of each company. Firstly, we installed a micro SIM card of NTT Docomo line which is adopted by cheap SIM a lot.

I recognized the SIM card when I was waiting for a while. Tap "Close".

When checking the APN, "NTT DoCoMo" was automatically selected, and it became possible to use the net immediately.

This is the Home screen that launched Liquid Z 200. The dock icon is Yahoo! JAPAN application, Yahoo auction application, book off application etc are set up.

It is like this when GIGAZINE is displayed. The top image is displayed in 2 columns.

However, since the liquid crystal size is 800 × 480, the amount of information is considerably small.

Next I tried installing the micro SIM card which I use in Wai Mobile 's data sharing plan.

After a while I recognized with the SoftBank brand. However, in this state, communication was not possible because the APN setting is incorrect.

To change the APN setting, tap "Settings" → "Other".

Tap "Mobile network".

Tap "Access point name".

Tap "Setting icon" → "New APN" in the upper right of the screen.

APN ""As the user name,"Ym"As the password,"YmEnter.

Furthermore, if MCC is "440", MNC"20", The authentication type is"CHAPMake sure that it is ... ...

Finally tap "Setting icon" → "Save" in the upper right of the screen.

If '' is selected, APN setting is completed.

· Dual SIM
In addition, Liquid Z200 can install two SIM cards and switch the SIM card to be used from the application.

By tapping "Settings" → "SIM management", information on SIM currently installed and information such as voice call and data connection are displayed, so you can switch the SIM card to use from here. In other words, while wearing the SIM card you normally use, you can switch over by installing the local SIM card overseas, change the SIM card even when traveling across multiple regions, switch at any time You can select a line.

· Operability of browsing
You can check how to browse with Liquid Z200 using Wai mobile line with the following movie.

Acer's 10,000 yen smartphone "Liquid Z200" operates like this - YouTube

The Liquid Z200 with Android 4.4.2 KitKat works seemingly crisply as 1 GHz dual core SoC, 512 MB memory, but you can see that browsing is stuck with the display of images and embedded movies. However, when I tried watching a 1080p full HD movie using the YouTube application, I was able to play smoothly without dropping frames or choking.

· Tethering
Liquid Z 200 also supports tethering. However, because it does not correspond to LTE, it can not deny that it is unsatisfactory in terms of speed.

· Quick Mode / Buzz Home
The Liquid Z 200 has "quick mode" which can use the simplified layout with carefully selected applications to use.

With such a feeling, it is possible to choose the optimum mode for children and elderly people.

For example, the classic mode looks like this. Since carefully selected applications are displayed in large tiles, even smartphone beginners are able to operate without hesitation.

There is also an application "Buzz Home" that you can download and change icons and wallpaper, you can use character design such as youkai watch.

Icons and search windows are also changed to youkai watchlike like this.

◆ Summary
Liquid Z200 realized the super-discount price of 10,000 yen (excluding tax) is an overwhelming presence that makes cheapness stand out among "cheap smartphone". However, if it says about appearance and texture, it is not a product called "cheap and bad," but there is no sense of luxury, but it seems to be possible to use Gashigashi without feeling with the feeling such as genuine health. There is no doubt that it will be inferior if compared with the latest terminal in terms of performance, such as non-compliance with LTE and the memory, battery capacity is very small, but it is unparalleled as "price 10,000 yen" It can be said that the price compensates for shortcomings. The Liquid Z 200 is a perfect terminal for those who are curious that they want to have children with it or those who want smartphones that can be used without difficulty overseas as well as those who want to play with cheap smaho I can say that.
